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.
Here's the deal: I cashed out a Visa at $60. They gave me 3 virtual Visa codes each for $20. Not one for $60 but 3 for $20 each. So they state that it can only be used for an online purchase for any store. Well, guess what? I went into Home Depot to place an order and at check out you can only use one account number. Now we all know that nothing equals exactly $20 so therefore being that there is only one box at check out for your Visa acct. number, you can't make up the difference with your debit card. You are now stuck with 3 $20 Visa acct. numbers that you can't use online. Not even on the phone. You can purchase something on line for less then 20 but then you have a balance left over that is useless, which means you did a few studies for free. If you continue to do surveys get Macys because at least you get an actual card in the mail and can use us both online and in store. They don't even have paypal. There are so many other survey sites that pay cash or they put it into your paypal.
There was a time when they used to send really good survey. But with time and increase in members they have reduced their survey points by half. Plus their 28 days pledge to credit survey points is very annoying. Also there rewards option are not good.
I am finding an increasing amount of Valued Opinions coincidentally crashing after I have spent 15-30 minutes answering the questions. This implies that the companies want to receive the information for free which is uncalled for an unfair.
After emailing Valued Opinions, this is their reply: "Thank you for the email. While we try to avoid any technical difficulties, there can sometimes be problems with very complicated surveys, with survey link errors or just with internet connection issues. Unfortunately this cannot be resent now. We are very sorry for the inconvenience and hope you do not experience any problems with future surveys."
There is no mention of looking into the problems or saying that they will compensate/reward you for the part completed answers.
Am having a lot issues with this site. I've been with them a few months and only made just over £17. I constantly get screened out when I'm near the end of a survey so I think there's something fishy going on. I emailed customer support and was told that there was a problem with the survey but this happens nearly everytime I do a survey with them.
It's a lot of work, but I consistently make $20/month in Amazon cards. They send me 3 surveys/day. I usually qualify for one. In the event that I dq on a survey, near the end, Customer Service is receptive to complaints. Some surveys are fun, some are mind numbing. I was invited to test one product, which I wasn't expecting at all (got a free product and $6 out of the whole test). Points used to take FOREVER to clear, but that's changed for the better. It's rare, now, that I don't get credited within the week. Would love it if they had more mobile friendly surveys. The VO mobile app doesn't actually provide any surveys at all. At least, not in the US.
