WOW, what to this site. I have been a member awhile and never an issue . It used to be 28 days to credit, then six weeks and now I just don't know. I have about a dozen surveys from JUNE and JULY and my inquiries are not getting responded to, So I would suggest, don't bother. They offer Macys cards, which my wife likes, but I guess they charge for visa and amazon redemption
The main issue I've had is how long it takes them to credit me for the surveys I've done. They tell you it can take up to 28 days, but I've got at least one, most likely still two, surveys that I completed back in June (it's now the end of August), and they're still listed under "pending." When I emailed them, I received an auto response saying that it could take anywhere up to 6 weeks..."or longer."
My other complaint is that--especially lately--I've been getting all sorts of emails for survey invitations, but when I click on them I just get a 404 message. At first I thought maybe the surveys had just filled up by the time I got to them, but this has happened with brand new invitations as well. When I go to my dashboard, there's nothing there.
And now I'm hearing that there's an extra fee just to collect rewards? No thanks. I'm certainly glad I wasted these past few months. My suggestion would be to switch to erewards; they don't have very many useful rewards (at least, not for me), but you rack up points REALLY quickly and you don't have to pay anything extra just to get your rewards.
This site used to be decent, but it is really bad now. They charge for $5 for a $25 Visa card. They actually charge $2 for an Amazon gift card?? I have survey that are 2, 3 months old that still have not been credited. Emails always take at LEAST a week to get responded to. You have to fight for every single dollar you make for them. Then when they do credit you, they credit you for less than what the survey was. I have been with them for 2 years, and I am seriously considering leaving. They have a bad choice of awards (safe to say that most people who do $1 surveys to make money won't use a spa certificate). I would not suggest them. Actually, I would warn against them
Valued opinions was one of my favorite sites. I loved doing their surveys and qualified pretty often. The reason I rate them so low is because they charge ridiculous amounts to redeem an amazon or visa card. Don't let them take advantage of you!
I have not had any issues cashing out from this site before. I do wish they offered Paypal like so many other, better sites. They recently initiated a 3% transaction fee for the Amazon codes and the Visa Codes which I think is ridiculous. Also, you can only redeem the $20 amazon code once you have $22. The Visa code you have to redeem at $25 to get a $20 code. Not sure what that is all about. So, overall it is a fairly good site and not too many problems. I have had one or two survey completions not show up though in the past. Wish this one had PayPal as an option too.
