Survey Taking Experience

Collect Your Points

Most OneOpinion surveys pay the points equivalent of $1 to $5 ($1 = 1,000 points), so you’ll hit the 25,000 point threshold needed to start redeeming your rewards quickly if you are an active member of the panel.

When new online surveys become available, you'll be e-mailed a survey invitation which will state the topic of the survey, the number of points offered for completing it, as well as the approximate time it'll take to complete. Even if you end up getting screened out of a survey, One Opinion will still reward you with points! This will help you reach your rewards goals faster.

Earn Points for Disqualifications

If you get screened out or are disqualified from an online survey, OneOpinion will still compensate you. Earn up to 250 points per day (50 points x 5 disqualifications) for screen outs.

Get Your Points Immediately!

After you complete an online survey, your reward points will instantly be loaded into your account. These points can be traded in towards great rewards from the OneOpinion Rewards Program.

Take Part in LOTS of Surveys

If you qualify, and your profile matches the studies criteria, there may be a new survey for you to take every day. Partner surveys are also available, which will help match you to additional studies.

NOTHING, CAN'T GET A PAYING SURVEY

November 13, 2022 by STEPHEN from United States

This site just took over MyView Surveys. With MyView, I used to get 100 points when I didn't qualify for a survey, this site only offers 50 points for the same thing, but they seem to pay out more for surveys that I do qualify for and I'm cashing out a little more frequently than with MyView. I just cashed out $25 after only 28 days.

I've been dealing with the headache of trying to cash out the points. The one step that's a real pain is they send a SMS code to your cell phone. Problem is that it can take over 2 hours to receive the code and then when you finally get the code, it doesn't accept it. I just did this and had to try about 5 times to cash out my points for a $25 VISA girt card. This is starting to get very old and very annoying. They make you go through all this red tape just to redeem your points.

Update: I have them call my landline for the code to redeem my gift card, this works very well. I'm getting more surveys and redeem $25 approx. every 20 days now.

For the last couple of weeks, their website seems to be operating slower. I use to wait 6-7 seconds on the first screen waiting for surveys, now it's over 15 seconds. This might not sound like much, but time is money, esp. for someone like me who might do as many as 50 surveys in one day. 9/16/20.

Update 12/8/21: For the last few months, the amount of surveys that I've got has decreased drastically. Don't know if others are having this problem too. i read lots of reviews claiming they're going down.

Update 5/6/22: They were bragging about how great the new website is and it's worse than ever! First, we don't get 250 points (.25) per day for trying and not qualifying for the surveys. Next, I try several surveys and I didn't even qualify for one and then I get to a screen that says "SORRY, PLEASE TRY ANOTHER SURVEY" or "UPDATE YOUR ACCOUNT", even though I already spent time doing this. This is just a total waste of time and I'm not going to mess with this survey panel anymore.

Update 6/23/22: To be fair, I am getting a survey every couple of days, but this survey site isn't what is used to be.

Update 10/12/22: The new website is terrible, it's now a complete waste of time. I'll click on about 15 surveys and they all tell me that I con't qualify, usually waste about two minutes per day going through this and not even getting paid for one survey!

Update 11/10/22: I can't get any paying surveys. All I get is the message to try another survey. Total waste of time! This survey company is now just plain garbage!

The Worst "Survey" Site Ever

November 5, 2022 by Justin from United States

I haven't used this survey site in years and the reason why is because they terminated my account. I used for years before and cashed out many times and made a bit of money here, but they started pausing my account and canceling my redemptions. I keep having to appeal even though I didn't do anything to deserve it. In the end I lost about $50 in stolen redemptions. Their customer service is a joke, and they even disabled reviews on their facebook account. STAY AWAY PEOPLE! Why do you keep using this awful excuse of a survey site? Use beforthright or qmee or anything else, they are so much better than this joke of a website.

I have found out the source of the flagging

October 24, 2022 by Marina from United States

I really loved One Opinion survey company even though they only allow to cash out after one has reached $25. Right now I have about $20 and they no longer let me do surveys and have told me there might be a reason then they listed several reasons for this. One was if I rush though the survey I might be blacklisted. I don't rush though surveys as far as I can tell. My mouse isn't acting right and it sometimes jumps into 2 or 3 browser windows and I need driver updates. I have asked for help and I am not getting help. I have worked for them for years and never a problem until now. I think it is my mouse causing the problem. I have asked them to give me my $20 that I have earned for Paypal credit and I guess I leave them since I am forced to do that since I no longer am eligible for their surveys and they won't tell me the reason and they only list 5 different reasons and I have to figure out which one it is. I don't find that very kind or professional. We, the panelists out here, don't earn a lot for surveys and we cannot say anything when we no longer are eligible due to some problem? Just wanted to say it is unfair.

UPDATE: This survey company is very honest and I found out that blacklisting and or flagging panelists is done by a company outside of OO I have been flagged by someone but have complained to this DYNATA company and if they don't answer I will get help from BBB or whoever will listen.
Thank you OO for providing a great survey company,. Nobody is perfect and Dynata surely isn't which is proven by them ignoring people's questions. I will remain with OO and give them a perfect review now that I know it isn't their fault but a company named Dynata is behind it all.

Back Up to 4 Stars

September 9, 2022 by Joyce from United States

When I first joined One Opinion, I was completely satisfied with it, then last Spring when they went through changes, it took double the time for me to cash out.. there were hardly any surveys.. Finally in August I was able to cash out- I was paid immediately.. and since then, I have gotten plenty of surveys to do, many well paying and I think by next month, (fingers crossed) will be able to cash out again. The only reason I didn't put it back to 5 Stars is I don't want to get too happy about it...yet.

Losing ground

August 25, 2022 by Jeff from United States

Been a member for over 15 years. Started when it was Zoom. To date , no issues other than the site seeing my landline phone as VOIP and not allowing cash out. However , an email message to support always ended in getting the Walmart card.

The earnings here are OK , but not great. Most surveys end in a DQ , but you do get 50 points. Cash out is 2500 points and used to cash out 4-5 times a year. Unfortunately , since a recent "upgrade" , reaching cash out level is likely once a year at best. Way fewer surveys than in the past and most are either already filled or a DQ.
