Two communities to join
OpinionSite offers new members the option to join two different communities depending on their demographic. The first is a broad "Online Community" which ranges from business decision makers to consumers of everyday products. The second is the more exclusive "Healthcare Provider Community" which is for anyone who identifies as a healthcare professional. Members are welcome to join both if they fit the bill!
Take online surveys for cash and gift cards
OpinionSite offers online surveys for cash that is sent in the form of a check. Accumulate points that can then be redeemed for a check when your account balance reaches $10 (14,000 points). The check will arrive at your given address in approximately 6-8 weeks time.
Alternatively, you may request an e-gift card from retailers including Amazon, iTunes and Walmart.
Join and get $1, complete profiling survey, get $2
Confirm your registration with OpinionSite and receive 1,400 ($1.00) credited to your account. Complete the short profiling survey available in your account and earn an additional 2,800 points ($2.00).
Earn fair compensation
OpinionSite claims to strive to offer competitive and appropriate compensation and has set an absolute minimum of 50 points per participation, including for survey disqualifications. Survey payouts usually range from $0.50 - $2.00 per survey, but are fun and quick in nature.
Excellent customer service
OpinionSite prides themselves on having quality customer service for its panel members. If you have an issue or question, responses are usually quite quick and helpful!
Eligibility: Residents of the United States, 13+
These people will collect data from you and after wasting you answer sever questions, which actually ask for specific information will decline to pay you saying you aren't qualified. They collect data then won't pay you
Good site, especially since you can get $3 just for joining and doing the profile survey. Make $7 more and you have enough for your first payment (though they state these amounts in points, not dollars).
This is one of the few survey sites that will give you points when you get screened out of a survey. This is SO rare.
You get your gift cards super fast after requesting them. I haven't tried requesting a check - I prefer Amazon.
There's something not right with this panel. I completed a beverage survey and when I was re-routed back to the OpinionSite, I was told I didn't qualify. I let it go and didn't take their surveys for awhile. Now today, I took a 20 minute survey about the Plan B One Step Pill. I successfully completed it (answered MANY questions and rating magazine ads, commercials, etc) and when being re-routed back to the Opinionsite they tell me AGAIN that I didn't qualify. I am very upset. This is either an ongoing technical issue or outright fraud. Either way, it needs to be fixed.
On another note - I've done surveys for YEARS. All the sudden sites are saying it may take 15-20 minutes to qualify. That's garbage. They are stealing data and we need to stick up for ourselves. There should be a limit on the amount of questions asked or time spent qualifying for a survey.
I've been a member for quite some time and this panel is a total waste of time. The last survey they sent me had a $40 honorarium to charity?!? The US charities that blow and waste money?? Do you know how many charities there are in this country and I don't know anybody who needs help that can get the help they need.
I just cashed out and closed this account. If they think their panel is competitive, then they have another think coming!!
I cannot stand greed and this panel is the epitome of greed!!
signed up for this terrible site and all they send me is chronic pain or bowel leakage surveys...........what crazy people....sent back emails saying I was in good health and still this crazy stuff keeps coming.....finally unsubscribed
I used to like this panel but I rarely ever qualify for a survey. The good news, they DQ you pretty fast and you receive points if you don't qualify. I'm just waiting to dq 5 more times so I can cash out and quit this panel.
