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.

Not enough surveys

April 15, 2019 by Brad from United States

I hardly get any surveys from these guys. Not worth the time. Better options out there and no PayPal.

Too invasive

February 19, 2018 by Michael from United States

This app is too invasive and only pays $1 a week unless you get sent surveys. This isn't enough to make me want to keep in on my devices. I'd rather make straight money for surveys without installing garbage on my phone.

Stay away this is not worth doing.

July 23, 2017 by Mitchell from United States

When i first started this i would get 1 or 2 surveys a week after last june or july they just dropped off and i haven't got one since a year and haven't got even one this isn't worth doing. Sometime by or right after the 4th of July 2017 I'm deleting the app it just takes up space on my phone and i don't get paid anything for having it installed

Review update: As of 7/21/2017 on top of not getting a survey from them in over a year i had about $4.60 that they took from me i wouldn't ever use this app again.

I liked them until.......

This is now Cross Panel. It switched over at the end of June for all account holders of Screenwise trends. I requested a payment (gift card) from them in April that I have never received! I have emailed them over 15 times and only once got a response of "we will send you another gift card if you haven't received it in 4-6 weeks." I have been waiting 12 weeks for this gift card......they have to the worst customer service. Half my emails get no response!

Past Due

April 10, 2016 by Jeff from United States

11 days ago I was told I would be paid my 2nd 50.00 from Screenwise Trends in 10 days, Still nothing in my pay pal account. 3 days ago I was told again by Screenwise tends I would be paid at the end of he week, well it's Friday and I still have not been paid. I just sent them a letter explaining to them that they have lied to me I time too many and I quit there Application, I want all monies owed and I will be done with them. I put in my request for my money on 3-1-2016, There own site states 4-6 weeks. It's been that, Still nothing. I have been with them for over a year.
