How Opinion World Works

Creating an OpinionWorld account so that you can be sent paid surveys is easy. Simply navigate to their registration page and fill out a few basic details. If you prefer you can use your Google or Facebook account to sign up in a matter of seconds

Once you’ve done that, you’re free to start completing tasks to earn points and claim rewards and can find surveys listed in your account, or you can wait for them to be e-mailed to you.

Payment and Rewards

Rewards for Surveys

You’ll earn between 50 ($0.50) and 300 ($3) points for each survey you complete, depending on its length. Some surveys do not award points, but rather, offer donations to charities. These surveys are usually quite short and can be taken on an almost daily basis! You will be notified before the start of the survey, if the survey is offering you rewards (points) or asking for your opinion for charitable donations, before you begin.

Once you’ve earned a minimum of $10, you can redeem your points for rewards including Amazon.com vouchers, Visa prepaid debit cards, cash via PayPal, restaurant gift cards, and more.

Rewards for Watching Videos and Reviewing Advertisements

OpinionWorld gives you the opportunity to earn points by watching videos and offering your feedback on video advertisements. The rewards are minimal, but it’s a nice low-effort addition to the website that you might enjoy and can help you reach your cash out goals sooner.

Real World Missions

Depending on your location, you might be able to earn points by completing ‘real world missions’ while you’re out and about.

Most missions of this nature involve sharing information about shops and other customer-serving businesses. You'll need to connect your mobile device in order to participate.

Redeeming Points

The minimum points or dollars redemption threshold is $10 USD (or equivalent in Canada), unless there is a lower redemption option available for a certain reward. Threshold amounts vary in countries outside of the US and Canada. The points conversion is 100-1. This means that the value of every point is $0.01. So if you have 250 points in your account, it will be worth $2.50 (though this amount may vary if you are outside the USA).

Members who choose to redeem their earnings by PayPal or for an e-gift certificate, often receive their payments instantaneously, or within a few hours. Physical gift cards usually take approximately 2 weeks for processing and mailing.

They would cancel your account without notice. Explain it to you using non human language.
Don't waste your time.

Opinion World

Opinion World, Valued Opinions, Dynata. Beware! Don't waste your time. If the real owners are Dynata, they will lock you out after you reached the Diamond level and start cashing in your earnings. Your time wasted. The money you earned, denied.

Waste of time

October 18, 2020 by Bron from Australia

Invited to participate in a long survey approx 100 minutes offering great rewards. I completed the whole survey it took over 100 minutes to complete and then opted to continue on and complete more so our spent hours doing surveys for this company only to be told at the end I rushed my answered so I was not entitled to any points for my answers.

cancelled my membership!!

October 9, 2020 by Sandy from United States

I was recently informed that my membership to this survey site was cancelled and received the same response from the same person that responded to me from Opinion Outpost. Apparently, you can't be a member of both survey sites. Seems that is a "violation of their policy." Well, I have been a member of both of these sites for many years and just because they are owned by the same company shouldn't be a cause for cancelling my membership. Naturally, by closing my account I am unable to cash in the many points I have earned to date. What a sham!!!

Do NOT waste your time!

This site is what is taking over for the closure of Survey Spot but it's another one of those lame sites who claim people have violated their "security" just so they can suspend accounts. If Survey Spot or Opinion Outpost have ever accused you of "issues", don't waste your time with these idiots because you won't be able to even get a foot in the door.

Update: Both SS and OO had banned me for their MADE UP "security" issues. SS seems to have forgiven me as they've started sending me survey invites again - 2 just today. And SS let me into my account long enough to cash out my last few points. OO, on the other hand, STILL has me blocked - no access to my account and no survey invites. Meanwhile, Opinion World FINALLY acknowledged my attempt to open an account. 1 site says I'm banned, 2 want me as a member - ALL are the same company. Talk about the right hand not knowing what the left hand and both feet are doing. We'll see. And, until and unless Opinion World proves that they aren't going to pull nonsense on me, the stars will remain at 1/2.

Update: 5 seconds after they approved my membership, they banned me for those mysterious "security" issues again. All I can say is, THESE IDIOTS DON'T DESERVE TO HAVE A MEMBERSHIP SO, IF YOU TRY TO JOIN, YOU DESERVE WHAT YOU GET AND i CAN GUARANTEE YOU WON'T LIKE IT.
