American Consumer Opinion
American Consumer Opinion, also known as ACOP, is a research powerhouse. To date, they have paid out 30 million in rewards to 7 million members worldwide that have taken 20 million surveys! American Consumer Opinion was originally created by Decision Analyst in early 1986. Decision Analyst is a member of the BBB and holds memberships towards many prestigious marketing associations.
ACOP offers online surveys to its members that are interesting and quick. In addition to online surveys, participate in other research opportunities such as, product testing and judging the newest advertising campaigns.
Rack Up Points
Each time you take a survey, you will earn points for your time! Screener surveys (short surveys) are worth between 5 – 50 points and are 20 questions or less. Longer surveys fall in the range of 100 – 5,000 points each! 1 point equals one penny.
Great Reward Options!
As a panelist of ACOP, you must have a 1,000-point minimum balance to redeem your points. Once you have reached this minimum, you may redeem for the following options:
A few times a year ACOP sends out a survey that pertains to each household. The survey asks what products and services you use on a day to day basis. If you participate in this survey, you will most likely receive more invitations in the future, which translates to collecting more points!
Invite Friends to ACOP!
ACOP is always looking to grow its family worldwide. If you know a family member, friend or co-worker who would enjoy sharing their opinions in exchange for great rewards; then refer them to ACOP. Each time you successfully refer a new member, you will receive an entry into a monthly draw worth 5,000 points!
Eligibility: International member accepted, 14+. Limit of one person per household.
I've been a member of American Consumer Opinion, for about three months and cashed out at 1000 points (that's $10 paypal money). The money actually got approved into my Paypal account, and when I bought items off the internet, the payment was accepted, so now I know that it's genuine. The only reason in which I didn't give the full 5 stars, is because the payment process is so slow and it takes weeks to a couple of months, for the payment from ACO to be approved. A good survey website and apart from the payment slowness, I'm a happy member.
The frequency of surveys is terrible. Only four this year that actually gave me any points. Most of them make me go through a bunch of questions to say that sorry the survey is now closed.
I've been with this panel since 2013 and only cashed out twice. One in 2013, one in 2015, and I have now another paypal redemption pending... for 5 weeks. Never more than $15. It always took ages for the "pending" to become an actual payout.
I contacted them last night because it doesn't even state on the site's FAQ how long it takes to process a paypal payment. The reply was initially an automated one stating they had received my message, and then a few hours later this one arrived:
Please allow for 8-12 weeks before you receive your payment from the time of cash out. We are currently processing your payment. Thank you for your patience.
How the heck does it take that long to process a digital payment? I get rewards from other sites shortly after submitting a request or st the most, within a couple of weeks for paypal redemptions.
I will not be using ACOP any more after redeeming the last batch of points. I was stuck at 980 for ages waiting to do just this. It is not worth my time, and it is not worth yours.
This is a good survey site, they send you surveys and they give you a date on when you need to complete them by in order to see if you qualify which is good. The only issue I have is it takes to long for them to payout. I have cashed out several times on another panel and I am still waiting on one payout from these guys it's been well over a month. 8-12 weeks is just a little excessive to wait on a payout.
I think American Consumer Opinion offers interesting surveys and generous payouts, however when you cash out it can take 6 months to get paid. I feel that is an unreasonable wait time and I do not believe I will continue on this site.
ONE OF THE BETTER PANELS,UNFORTUNATELY THEY DO NOT SEND A LOT OF SURVEYS,THE ONES THEY SEND YOU KNOW ARE REAL,CASH OUT .LATELY HAS BEEN TAKING OVER 60 DAYS .YOU GET THE POINTS WHEN THEY GET PAID,SO WHY DOES THEIR INEPT PAYROLL DEPT TAKE FOREVER...SO FAR THEY TAKE LONGER THAN ANY OTHER SITE HAVE NOW BEEN WAITING 3 MONTHS FOR LATEST PAYMENT...STINKS
