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.

You don't have to wait long to get rewarded - if you take a survey worth 50 points, you'll already have enough to redeem a $5 Amazon gift card. The following reward options are offered on the site in exchange for participating:

  • PayPal payments - with only 100 points (worth $10/£5), you can request that a PayPal payment be made to your account. Bear in mind that only verified PayPal accounts will qualify for payment.

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.

Quarterly Chances to Win $10,000

That means that $40,000 in total is awarded to 4 lucky members every year!

I have been a member for at least 5 years. I have not had any real problems until a couple of months ago. I did my 100 points and got my: $10 thru paypal.
A couple months ago I had a constant problem of A SURVEY freezing when I got near completion. I could not advance with arrow to next page. Since it wasn't completed I wasn't paid.
I emailed them repeatedly but no response.
Then this week I had earned 134 points= $10.34.
Went TO PAYPAL and GOT ERROR message next DAY GOT email that they are looking into it.
Well, they decided to not pay me because???
Concerned about my accuracy
Truthfulness, and other BS like so many other reviewers stated after all these years and refuse to pay me and maybe 100 other members too. They want to save $1000 and kick out a hundred good members like me... to save money. They are not loyal to participants,so do not join or cancel your membership NOW!

Opinion outpost is NOT to be trusted

October 29, 2020 by Kelly from United Kingdom

Opinion outpost is like a green snake. When they finally win your trust. Then offers you a focus group that takes an hour or more, get all your feedback, ideas and answers. And when the time of rewards comes, they show their true color. First they will claim you got two accounts. Next that you have not been very thoughtful in your answers and the finally, you will not be allowed to claim your points or redeem your reward.

You get a long list of false accusations, all in a bit to deprive you of your reward. This is part of their message.....” At this time your account has been indefinitely suspended and you will no longer be able to participate in surveys or claim rewards from our website.”

They apparently copy this message and send to all that they are hoarding their points.

In your own interest stay away from these bunch. They don’t deserve your time.

Dumped for no Reason

October 27, 2020 by Fred from United States

Apparently this panel has decided to purge its membership, but the way they are treating long time members is horrendous. Telling long term members that they are not being truthful when taking surveys and making them forfeit any earned points is pathetic, if not illegal. At least have the guts to tell the truth to members that have been loyal to you for many Many years.

I'm warning everyone that is thinking about joining. DON'T JOIN because, they will KEEP all of your hard-earned money eventually. Opinion Outpost, E-rewards and iPoll are all connected to Dynata. All three are trying to keep me from redeeming my hard-earned money. I get the same generic replies that everyone else gets in their reviews. They don't have to keep me on as a survey taker after they PAY ME MY HARD-EARNED MONEY!

Opinion Outpost-UPDATE

October 10, 2020 by Dorcas from United States

Sends me numerous surveys per week and I also go to their site and access surveys. I earn enough points per month to redeem for $5-$20 depending on how often I access their site. Great dependable site!

Status quo for Opinion Outpost. STILL a great site, I qualify for many surveys and the rewards are still good. I would recommend to anyone!

Not recommended! Got an email this morning deactivating my account and the reasons they used do not honestly apply to me. What a shame, used to be my favorite survey site. I do NOT recommend this site!
