American Consumer Opinion General Information

American Consumer Opinion

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.

Survey Types
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:

  • PayPal: For most countries, use PayPal to cash out your earnings in a simple and easy manner.
  • Hyperwallet: Like PayPal, Hyperwallet is a user-friendly payment platform that operates in 170+ countries. You may choose Hyperwallet as a cash out option. Please allow 8-12 weeks for payment and you will receive a confirmation email once your money is available.
  • Sweepstake Cash Out: Use your points toward sweepstake entries that give you a chance to win a variety of lucrative prizes!
  • Charity Donation: Choose to donate your money to a variety of credible charities.

Household Surveys
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.

"Slow to pay"
April 27, 2017 by David from United States

Takes 8 to 12 weeks to get paid. Not very many invites and customer service is not too on the ball.

"non payment"
April 26, 2017 by john from United Kingdom

If you want to give up your time doing surveys for nothing then this is the site for you. Ive been waiting 4 months for payment and after countless emails sent still nothing.

"A battle to get paid, every time!!"
April 25, 2017 by Ed from United States

This company is the absolute WORST! Multiple surveys available each week, but good luck getting paid. It is the end of April and I am still waiting for a payment I requested in November. In November I was promised payment in 6-8 weeks, we are now at 5.5 months. I also requested another $10 in early January, after their payment policy changed to 8-12 weeks (a BAD SIGN). This payment is also overdue. Each of my payment requests in 2016 required multiple email follow ups before I was finally paid.
I've had enough with ACOP. My time has value. Next step for me will be contacting BBB. DO NOT, under any circumstances, join ACOP. I will be quitting as soon as I am paid.

Same here! I cash out for check on Jan 14, read that if would take 8-12 weeks for it to be sent (ridiculous!). I called them two weeks ago. In fact called them three times already. I kept getting switched over to answering machines that never return messages. I finally emailed them. They sent a message back to me. My payment was pending for the last 12 weeks, a few days ago it went to Approved. Now I'm waiting to see how it will take for them to send the check. I have been with this company since 2010 and they have gone completely downhill. I'm closing my account after I get this check.

"No payment as of yet"
April 21, 2017 by Jackie from United States

I've already gotten the email excuse and a terse reply stating that "They know the payment is late and will send an email when my payment will be sent. I checked their Facebook page and left a comment where others had also complained. After checking that same posting on Facebook a day later, they had deleted everyone's negative comments about not getting paid. I think a note to the BBB is in order.
