How Opinion Outpost Works

Opinion Outpost gives everyday consumers the opportunities to participate in online surveys and product tests in exchange for cash rewards and gift cards.

Signing up is free and to do so, you’ll enter your name, date of birth, postcode and email address on their website. After that, you’ll be prompted to enter your full address and confirm your email address before you’re able to begin answering surveys.

Once you've fully registered, you’ll see a “Take A Survey” button on your main account dashboard. This will take you to your list of available surveys. You can choose to have surveys emailed to you if you prefer.

You also have the option to add additional information (via profile surveys) to help Opinion Outpost match you with more relevant surveys to you.

Survey Taking Experience

Take Surveys Often

Paid surveys will be sent to you on a regular basis. You can also visit the website, log in and find a list of available surveys, giving you plenty of chances to make cash. A typical survey takes 10-15 minutes to complete and the amount of points you can expect to receive per survey ranges between 5 to 50 points. 1 point = $0.10.

Qualifying Questions

Before you begin your chosen survey, you may have to answer a series of multiple-choice questions. These may appear to be irrelevant to the topic of the survey itself, but are a way for researchers to ensure they're receiving responses from the people they're looking for ones from. Sometimes, you’ll be disqualified from taking the survey after answering these, however there will usually be other surveys available for you to take.

Modern, Interactive Surveys

Opinion Outpost offers fun, interactive online surveys that are attractive and simple to take. On top of offering sweepstakes entries, periodically, they offer games at the end of surveys which give you the opportunity to win additional points and/or additional sweepstakes entries. One such game is called the Opinion Outpost Door Game.

Opinion Outpost does not offer a mobile app. Although many of their surveys are mobile-friendly and can be completed on your phone, you will still need to access them via your e-mail, or by logging into the website from your phone.

You have cancelled your membership

July 1, 2021 by mike from United States

Long time member here (10+ years), and I am now getting a message that *I* have cancelled my membership. I did not. Waiting to see if there is help from their customer service, but if not, this will be my final review for them.

The Worst

May 27, 2021 by Susan from United States

I've been an active member for years.
Took many surveys, product tests, video and interactive activities. The company refuses pay me.

Problems since sites has gone through make overs

April 12, 2021 by Joe from Canada

EDIT (April 10th 2021)
2 things.
1: They have done something to their site again. (For me) when ever I go to the main page & click on accept cookies I get re-directed to a blank page. I have to refresh the page to have the sign in page show up. I would try with my browser/s in Safe Mode. I got the same results. I emailed them about it & they said to just clear my cookies & cache. That didn't solve it. It's still a problem to this day.
2: About Mid Feb. 2021 every time I would attempt a survey I would get redirected to a SSI Verify page. It basically says I an unable to take the survey due to various reasons. I emailed them about it. The response was again to clear my cookies & cache. I did that It never fixed the situation. I stayed off the site for about a month & tried again. I get the same results..redirected to the SSI verify page. So after emailing them again, I basically get told more basic things. Like, make sure my browser is up to date, language, date/time is correct. & no, I still cant do any surveys on the site.
I do like this site, Ive been a member for almost 3 years. So being unable to do any surveys since the first week of Feb & not really knowing why is a drag.
My rating was 4 & 1/2, I'll be dropping that to a 2 & 1/2. If the situation changes. I will once again rise the rating back up like I had the last time.

I dont know if it was something I did within my PayPal or if it was because the site has gone through a facelift. But for some reason I had to Re-link my PayPal account. After I had done that I received payment.

If anyone IS having problems receiving payment (IE: PENDING on your rewards status page) you should wait till you get your points returned to you (30 days) & re-link your PayPal account.

I do like this place. It's sometimes a hit or miss with the amount of surveys for a week. Id say (for me) 5 out of 10 do payout. It's not a massive amount 5-25 points per survey, but you only need 100 points for a $10 PayPal They also changed the way payouts are done. PayPal rewards are now $10 only each time. Which is fine by me.
Some of My Original review
Aug 5th 2020
I dont know what happened to this place. Ive been there for over 2 years now, & have never had a problem with cashing out. Back in June I had cashed out $10 via PayPal. 2 weeks went by & I still hadnt received my payment. I look at my "rewards page" and it still said pending.
The 30days pending passed & my points were returned to me. Ive now tried again (This was 7 days ago) & it still says pending..

If It changes & I get the $10, Ill update this.
