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.
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.
I have been with them for a few years and always got plenty of surveys. This past July I cashed out on the Visa card but never received it even though they told me they did send it. Just cashed out again on another Visa on 11/10 2014, never received it. I called them and I spoke to a woman and she told me she would send out both of them that day ( 11-26-14 ), nothing. Called them back 7 days later and no answer. Left a message to return call. Called them again today, and told them to send my code's to me! They even have the nerve to keep sending me more surveys, got two more just today. Also have 20.00 in the system and 9.00 pending. I hope no one takes their surveys any longer. UPDATE! I just called their corporate office 214-365-5000, they transferred me to Valued Opinions, but still no answer. Called the Corporate office again and explained what was going on. They are sending them an email on my behalf for them to call me ASAP, we'll see as the spoke person I talked to sounded a little on the edgy side. Will have an update if I hear anything or not. UPDATE: Still have not heard back from them nor any rewards, but they have the nerve to have sent me 3 more surveys which of course I have ignored. Just called them again and all you get is a recording. Update 12/23/14. Still no payments. I private messaged them on their FB yesterday, haven't heard back and sure I won't. Others on FB are complaining on their FB page. UP Date, 01/03/ 15. Well, I got all three of my Visa Rewards today! Had to private message them through FB and it paid off. They had no explanation except they said July's were sent out as well as November. I had to tell them it was not and not in my trash or junk. They wanted me to give them a different email address and I said no as this is the only one I use. But all is well, and they finally got sick and tired of me bothering them I assume. Going to thank them on a private message on FB as I can't get a hold of them any other way. I'm bigger then them as far as saying I'm sorry which they did not do,
I don't know why everybody are complaining. This site is great. I get about 3 invitations a day from 0.50 to 1.50. I use it for three moths and i have already collected 60 pounds on vouchers. They send the electronic vouchers immediately and it's easy to reach the minimum amount for redemption. Of course like all sites like that the faster you respond the more likely is that you won't get screen out. My favorite and more reliably site i don't get why it has so many negative reviews !!
