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.

"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.

"If you're not getting paid: FILE with the BBB"
April 14, 2017 by Sarah from United States

I had the same problem with ACOP -- they weren't paying in a timely manner, had to wait while they sent email excuse after email excuse, so I finally filed a complaint with the Better Business Bureau of Central Texas, because I read on here that someone else did the same thing. They got paid so I figured I'd get paid too. Maybe a week after I filed with the BBB, I got a snotty email from ACOP detailing all of the excuses they had sent in their earlier emails, and then payment was sent maybe two days later. I immediately deleted my account and won't ever sign up with them again.

"Not Paid"
April 12, 2017 by Marsha from United States

I have been a panel member since 2009 and have had no problems with them until now. I cashed out on 12/26/16 and still have not been paid and keep getting the run around about how they are behind in their payments. I am getting no place calling either. All I get is transferred to answering machines. Very frustrated already.

"Slow payout"
March 28, 2017 by patty from United States

It has been about 5 months now. Still no pay even though they said a month ago that payment was being processed. Don't join. Not worth it.
