Valued Opinions is an online survey panel operated by ResearchNow. The panel is available in over 15 languages across more than 20 different countries. Valued Opinions members receive "cash" redeemable for vouchers for each survey they participate in and quarterly cash draws for members are also held.
Points can be redeemed for the following rewards: Visa promo codes, CVS/pharmacy e-gift cards, Fragrance.net e-gift cards, Magazines.com gift codes, Spa Week e-gift codes, Macy's offline gift cards, Amazon.com vouchers, Chillis gift cards, Restaurant.com e-gift cards, iTunes e-gift cards, and Southwest Rapid Reward Points. These rewards apply to USA members, and may vary based on location.
Electronic gift vouchers are typically delivered within 24 hours. It can take up to 28 days to receive an offline (physical) gift card in the mail.
Used to be my favourite, but recently they've adopted the habit of frequently letting me complete up to 80% of a lengthy survey before telling me they've filled their quota or I don't qualify. They still send out the same number of invites but it now takes 6 months to earn £30 when it used to take 3 months.
To redeem a £10 voucher now costs you £10.50 This is sent via email and it is up to me to print out the voucher if I choose. So they are now saving money on postage, printing etc but are charging me for the privilege of obtaining my earnings. A rip off if ever there was one.
They should realise that disrespecting their customers is likely to produce inaccurate and unreliable survey results.
REVIEW OF THE AUSTRALIAN SITE: Like most sites, surveys are sporadic. Sometimes there are a lot, sometimes only a few. However the surveys are genuine, the points are redeemable for cash-style vouchers and cards, and help and support will assist with problems.
I've been with them for three or more years. While they'll never make you a wage, they are a good survey site and won't rip you off.
I really don't know why this has such a terrible rating - V.Ops are one of my biggest survey earners - I had £90 in M&S vouchers for 2014! I think the problem may be that the payout value has increased from £10 for a £10 voucher, to £10.50 for a £10 voucher. It is a shame, but other survey firms are a LOT worse (Yes, I'm looking at you, Springboard & Toluna). Survey points range from .25p to £20-£30! (I had 2 of those high paying ones last year! First time ever!) The big payers do tend to want you to go through the motions of requesting something though. In my case, it was requesting motor insurance quotes via 3 or 4 comparison websites. Time-consuming? I suppose, but I needed to do it anyway. (And I also found a cheaper quote too, so not all bad!) I've not had any problems with missing points, and when I did have to log a query (my account had been suspended) all was resolved quickly. One of the problems with accounts being frozen, is that you're taking surveys on a computer where the proxy server is registered in another Country. (I do mine at work). All in all, not as black as they're painted in my opinion.
a great panel with lots of surveys per week and very quick to earn the rewards.
I had over $400 sitting in my account and when they no longer gave out Marriott gift cards and then the Visa virtual cards are pretty much garbage at $25, I decided to cash out via the Southwest Airlines option.
Now with my account last showing $89.55, I can't log into my account. It is saying my e-mail cannot be found in their database. Submitting a lost password request yields the same result. Calling their office yields nothing, as the operator is never there.
I just called their corporate offices (Research Now - 214-365-5000) to demand my payment for the amount owed still.
