Review:

Radio Loyalty purports to pay you for listening to music and giving your opinion of it. However, you get paid in points — and not a lot of them. You get points worth less than 50 cents an hour. Radio Loyalty points can be turned into gift cards when you earn enough of them, but that could take years given the slow rate at which these points are awarded.  

If that wasn’t depressing enough, it turns out that Radio Loyalty’s terms say that your points expire after a year or 180 days after your last log in, whichever comes first. Short version: You’ll probably never accumulate points fast enough to cash them in.
