Two Communities to Join
OpinionSite offers new members the option to join two different communities depending on their demographic. The first is a "Consumer Community" which ranges from business decision makers to consumers of everyday products. The second is the more exclusive "Healthcare Professional Community" which is for anyone who identifies as a healthcare professional. Members are welcome to join both if they fit the bill!

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. If you choose a gift card option, you can expect to receive it 1-2 weeks after redemption. Gift cards available include Amazon, Walmart, and iTunes gift cards.

I don't see what the fuss is about.. other reviews make it sound like Opinionsite is so much worse than it is.
Yes, it make take some time to accumulate points (surveys are worth $2-3$), but the checks arrive quickly (around 3 weeks usually). Also, anytime I have an issue or the site crashes, their team is really friendly and helpful.

I am a member of many survey sites and one I can tell is good is Opinionsite. Most of the surveys are really interesting and you can redeem the points for $10. But recently I receive invite for a survey and I won an Amazon gift card.

I collected a couple of times for a $10 Amazon Certificat. On October 7 at 5:50PM I participated in a 90 minute focus grop that was supposed to pay $75. I received nothing. In emailing them 7 or more times I finally got a reply telling me how to use their stupid points. They offered no assistance in informing me of the $75 reward that I got screwed out of. Don't even think about this site it's a waste of time.

In a year, I've earned 4,600 points. To redeem your points you must have 14,000...and that's for $10.00!!! I finally dropped them, as the other companies I was signed with, I was reaching their cash-out threshold & I was finally seeing my efforts rewarded (I signed with a lot of them @ the same time). I've reached a 2nd cash-out on several. Then I look @ 4,600 to 14,000...well, you do the math!!

I got a survey from them once a week or every other week. I have only been a member for a short time, but I like them. The surveys are good and they reward your account right after a survey. Also, they have paypal.
