About Opinion Outpost
Opinion Outpost is a free community where members are rewarded for sharing their opinions in various types of paid surveys about dozens of new and current topics and products.
How does it all work?
Once you sign up for a free membership, you’ll be asked to confirm your info so they know you’re a real person. After those quick steps, you’ll start receiving invites in your email that will securely bring you to surveys. You can also log on to OpinionOutpost.com and take surveys through a button on your account page. Each time you complete a survey, Opinion Outpost will deposit points safely into your account which can be redeemed for cash and rewards.
Why is joining for free a solid idea?
Simple: because Opinion Outpost gives you cash and rewards for completed surveys. You can earn cash through PayPal or opt for an Amazon.com Gift Card Claim Code*. They even offer iTunes gift cards* as a reward option. They’re also proud to provide the option to redeem points for cash that Opinion Outpost will donate to the American Red Cross.
Aside from taking surveys for money, why else should you sign up?
If you don’t sign up and participate, you won’t be eligible to win $10,000 in their quarterly prize draw. Each quarter they give away $10K like it’s going out of style. All you have to do is be an active member of the panel and participate in surveys to earn entries.

I have been on this freakin site for over a year now and I have been suspended 3 times and the third they closed my account. Every time they suspended my account or was some stupid reason like data concerns or breach of terms. I would completely understand if they were concerned with something but I always emailed them asking what was wrong or what I did. Every time they come back saying they would look into it and that would be fine if they ever told me what I did wrong but they never did when they did email me they just said my account was deleted without telling we a reason way so I could explain our defends myself.
Short version is to just skip over this one because they are always looking for some reason to kick you out.
Of all the survey sites I've tried, this is the one which has the easiest and quickest way to cash out. Once you get 100 points, you can take the cash option which will transfer the money to your paypal account in minutes (10 cents per point).
So far, there's been a lot of surveys available. You don't always qualify for them, but usually, they screen you out before you get too far into them. And for your effort, they'll give you an entry into the $10,000 giveaway that takes place every 3 months. A little tip, if you don't qualify, click "no thanks". It will give you the option to play one of 2 mini games for more entries (wheel) or points (door). (although I'm not convinced the door one is winnable at all because I literally always end up with the yellow token #2).
The downside is that the surveys you do qualify for don't really give that many points for the time they take (I'd had a few 12 minute surveys only give me 5 points). And even then, the time length is not always accurate. A "5 minute" survey can take 15 to 20 minutes. Another issue is that every now and then, you'll end up with a survey that doesn't give any points, just entries into their $10,000 (which you'll get anyway, even if you don't qualify for the survey). This doesn't happen too frequently, but it happens enough to cause frustration when all you need are five more points to cash out.
This brings me to the buggy parts of the site. While most of the time, I have gotten the points promised, there were a couple of instances in which I was told I didn't qualify directly after taking the survey. There were also a couple of times where I got a message telling me that they couldn't credit me points because I was suspected of violating their terms (something about already taking the survey using my computer.) Lastly, the surveys they email to you often just link you back to their "we're all ears" page. And if they don't list a point value, don't bother. Because it probably means the survey will just get you an entry into the $10,000.
However, those bugs don't happen that often and since it's so easy to cash out (especially compared to other sites like this), I'd rate them above average.
I've been a member for over 2 years - the rewards are fair and redeeming points is almost instantaneous. Although sometimes there are instances of not qualifying for a survey after mostly finishing it.
The 'Games' - choosing a door and spinning a wheel are fruitless. I still do it, and have never won - after 600 plus spins. Early on, I believe I won 10 points once, but they've changed the 'game' since then.
These guys have gotten stingier and stingier with their payments and have several opportunities, but they have a very annoying game at the end of each survey. You pick a door. I have opened this door over 100 times. It squawks this TERRIBLE noise at you when you lose that hurts your ears. Especially if you have on headphones like I do. It's no fun and you never win. I won 2 points I think the very first time and nothing since.
The surveys are decent. Get a fair amount of them. The points are good. Add up quickly if you qualify of course. Have redeemed from them various times and they were quick on it. Customer Service gets back to you quickly with issues, but I did not like having to write in monthly because they would lock me out for no reason. I finally gave up and cancelled. But if you have the patience for that, they are decent.
