You can use credits for anything in the Google Play Store. However, if you do not have enough credits, you cannot split the balance between credits and credit card/carrier billing. Any redemption must be either fully from credits or fully from a credit card/carrier billing.

Google Surveys is Google's in-house market research tool that helps market researchers create online surveys to share with voluntary users who fill out the surveys in order to earn rewards. Users answers are aggregated and shared with the market researcher and answers are completely anonymous unless explicitly stated at the beginning of the survey.

During the setup process, you associate your Google payment profile with your Google Opinion Rewards profile so that Google can apply Google Play credits to your account. Once you go through the introductory survey based on demographic questions and go through a survey tutorial, you will receive notification for your first paid survey. Upon completion, you will be directed to a confirmation page confirming the credit applied to your Google payment profile.

Help Shape the Future of the Internet, Just By Surfing!

Join the Google Opinion Rewards to help Google make its products better and gain insight into the average consumer. Once you've signed up, Google will send you everything you need to set up your devices (TV, tablets, computer and phone). Then, you simple access the Internet as you normally would and earn rewards along the way. If you ever need privacy from the service, you simply enter "Guest Mode" to keep you browsing or preferences private.

Sign up

Sign up and get sent everything you need for Google to monitor your device(s) and track your rewards. Rewards are paid out in the form of Google Play credits. Google Opinion Rewards are surveys run by market researchers. The frequency of receiving surveys may vary, and you do not have to answer every survey you receive.

Earn Rewards

The amount of credits received can vary from survey to survey and is dependent on the number of questions and the amount of time it takes to complete a survey. Answering questions in a certain way is not required to receive a credit. The more honestly a person can answer a question, the more valuable the opinion is, and as a result you may receive more surveys or credit.

PayPal payments are not offered by Google Opinion Rewards - only Play credits are awarded.

Redeem Rewards

To redeem your credit, simply tap on "spend your play credit" on the home screen of the mobile app or by shopping directly in the store. You choose your reward in the form of books, games, music or movies - anything that's on Google Play is yours to redeem!

Note that accrued credits expire 1 year from the date of the credit.

In 2018, Cross Media Panel merged with Google Opinion Rewards. As such, although some of the reviews below appear to be for Cross Media Panel, they now apply to Google Opinion Rewards, as the panel is the same.

Quick and easy

December 8, 2015 by Kevin from United States

This is a good way to pay for content on Google Play without using real money.

Pros: The questions are quick and easy. You can let the credits accumulate to make larger purchases.

Cons: The credit can only be used to buy digital content in the Google Play Store and credits expire 1 year after earning them so you have to spend it within 1 year.

you need 25 dollars to get paid they tell u up front it takes 6 weeks to receive your money after you request it they pay you right on the day. computer,smartphone,tablet pays 3.00 a week money adds up fast.

They do pay...

June 15, 2015 by Jillian from United States

Eventually. Once you have enough money built up to cash (minimum $25), it takes 4 to 6 weeks to receive your gift card via e-mail. With everything sent via e-mail, it is really not acceptable to take that long to receive payment.Virtually every time I have cashed out, I have had to e-mail them in order for me to get paid. Plus if you want Paypal, you have to have $50 banked and then they take a 3% fee out of your payment. And to top it all off, it seems that their website lately is down more often than it is up. There are much better companies out there. I can't recommend them.

Highest paid survey app

June 3, 2015 by Jessica from United States

This is the highest paid survey app. I wish there were longer surveys to earn more money! But I've been able to get a lot of free movies & tv shows in the play store. This is by far my favorite survey site/app!
