I am extremely frustrated with Opinion Miles. For every 10 surveys I take, maybe one gets points awarded. The others result in errors after I've spent 20-30 minutes each and complete them or I am found to be 'Not Qualified' after 10-20 minutes each. It is ridiculous and a failure.
This program collects too much private information and gives you almost nothing in return. In the emails it seems easy to get the points however it is misleading the customers, you will rarely get a single point.
You answer a lot of questions for almost 15 minutes and suddenly a message comes informing you do NOT qualify for the survey.
Some customers reviewed missing points. In order to avoid it I suggest doing a print screen and save in your files this way you will have a way to prove your missing point.
I read about Opinion Miles Club in other review pool, they were talking about 2013 when the situation to get the miles was very different. I can say nowadays 2015-2016 it is a waste of time.
In order to receive your bonus (or any points) you have to qualify for a survey. I have still not qualified for a single survey...I even tried faking information 10 different ways.
Waste of time. DO NOT USE!
I find Opinion Miles Club useful, to stop my frequent flier miles from expiring. I have a batch of miles I can't use at the moment, due to career.
As for using Opinion Miles Club to add to my mileage balance, I find it less useful, because I rarely qualify. There's the added frustration of being informed I don't qualify, and have earned nothing, after answering a lengthy series of often quite personal questions.
Also, sometimes surveys quit working, say, ten minutes into a twenty-minute survey. This discourages me from even clicking, on one of the many emails I receive from them.
I strongly prefer e-Rewards' partial credit for non-qualifiers, and higher reliability.
My introductory surveys went fine, and the miles posted right away, but even since it's been a different story. The email notifications are 'teasers' promising hundreds of miles for 5 or 10 minutes. But once you log on, it's usually a lot fewer miles for 20 or 30 minutes. Then, if you try the surveys, you end up spending a lot of time answering very specific questions only to be kicked out without credit because allegedly you "aren't the right demographic." Or the survey develops a mysterious fault that freezes it after you've given a half hour of answers, again with no miles crediting. Every now and then--about every eight or ten surveys--you can get one to complete. I think there are experiments with rats that show that if you give rats a reward of chow randomly every eight or nine times they press a lever, they'll keep pressing. I guess I don't need the chow badly enough, because I'm not wasting my time pressing anymore on this survey club.
