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.

Ripped off

July 23, 2013 by Walter from United States

You get 20 minutes into a survey, they get your info, then tell you that they have enough answers like yours. This happens often. You lose!
Then try to redeem your points. They say, for Amazon, I cannot use my long established phone number because it is "invalid". Then I cannot use Pay Pal because I am not with the right "organization". I wonder if they really do redeem points.

DO NOT JOIN!!

I was wooed by the excellent reviews I read across multiple sites. It was easy to take the surveys, they even pay pretty decent. The problem with Opinion Outpost is they will freeze your account for nonexistent violations and you end up fighting with them to get anywhere. I was logging in daily. I had pulled out $10 at a time via paypal a few times. I foolishly allowed my cash to build up there because I felt safe that nothing was going to happen. Low and behold they freeze my account. The reason, that has taken 3 weeks to get out of them, is that I have multiple accounts and the email account they site is the other adult in this household. Per their terms 2 adults may participate in surveys per household. I am 1, the other person makes 2. Now that I have had my money stolen from me I am seeing more and more reviews that I am not the only one this is happening to. DO NOT TAKE THE CHANCE!!! You deserve to be paid for taking these surveys as they promise to do when you accept their terms. Don't work for free for them!!! THEY DO NOT PAYOUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Do not waste your time on this! I have been doing their surveys for a few weeks now. I had 107 points and tried to redeem 100 points. I received a message that my account has been frozen due to "data concerns". It said to email or call. I did both. No response to emails and a recording on phone call. They basically had me doing surveys for days and then stole the money I earned. I still have no clue what "data concerns" means. BBB will be contacted.

Dishonorable

They cancel your account just because. I truthfully answered all the surveys I took from them, and they terminated my account when I tried to cash out my earnings. BEWARE of this site, they have a history of doing this kind of shady practice.
