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.

Surveys are fast. I always get notified when a survey is available. The rewards are easy to use on the Google play store

I joined Cross Media Panel and so far my experience has been great. I downloaded an app that runs in the back ground it ask every once in while for me verify and I get points for doing nothing.

Easy Money

I've been a member of CrossMedia for several years now and I've never had any issues. Payment is generally instant. The only device I have registered at this time is my Android so I earn $1 a week and can cash out every 5 weeks and all I have to do is make sure it is connected. Easy money. Highly recommend.

Easy rewards

One of the best. Real fast rewards just click what you want and it's there in just a few minutes. This is done by google that's why i joined it 5 stars and i don't give a 5 star ranking very easy.

12/05/17 Cashed out $100 dollars in Amazon gift cards for doing what i would be doing anyway. Great for Christmas got to say wow what a site A+.

12/11/2017 I got a email from cross media panel today saying they was shutting down there web browser and ios app so they're no longer going to be anything but Android from now on. Hate to see those go as i make about $125 dollars a year from them.
