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.

Membership Terminated

May 20, 2020 by Teresa from Singapore

Just like what most reviews said about OpinionWorld, I would say at least 95% of members get terminated once you tried to redeem your points. I just tried to redeem my points today and even got my PayPal verified just for the sake of them and this same shit have to happen 😤 Though I emailed them for clarification but I bet they are just going to either not reply or give generic answers saying I have fake accounts or dishonest answers while doing their survey.

This company is just greedy and dishonest in their operations, if I had really fake accounts or any dishonest acts then why wait until I redeem my points instead of just terminating me earlier?! They just want to collect free data and keep all the earnings to themselves!!!

UNSCRUPULOUS COMPANIES should cease to exist!

terminated for violation of rules

May 19, 2020 by John from United States

I tried to simply redeem my 1225 points for a reward and was terminated for absolutely nothing !! I sent them an e-mail last week and was told my account would be reactivated within 24 hours by Psalm now almost a week later I was told by Karen I was terminated!! I spent countless hours doing the surveys to the best of my ability and personally I feel I was terminated because I simply tried to redeem for a 12.25 paypal credit!!I know this to be a fact as Psalm stated it was a system malfunction and I would be reinstated within two business days!! Im going to file a better business bureau complaint and I feel not only was I lied to but I was cheated out of my 12.25 I earned!! Again I hereby state I was told I would be reinstated within 24 hours by Psalm due to a system malfunction!! I spent countless hours for nothing!! I hereby state unequivocally I did the surveys to the best of my ability and I paid attention !! sometimes a half hour survey would only net 10 or 20 points and yet I enjoyed them and honestly did them to the best of my ability!! I feel this was totally unjust!! JOHN N.

Took my money

February 4, 2020 by Laurie from United States

I have gotten paid in the past. They give out very little in points. 500 = $5 Amazon card. This last time it said failed. No card, and they did not return my points or email. DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH THEM if you will get mad when the don't pay you.

Dec 22--My email provider did it again and sent a survey from opinion world to my spam folder. I marked it as "not spam" when I found it in my spam folder but my acct. with opinion world has already been deactivated. I emailed them and got a canned response they are out until after the holidays.
I have no idea why my email provide does this now and then. This has happened 3 times in the last 5 years and the first time all emails went to spam, even those from family and friends. I had to go through the BBB to get my accts reactivated so if this happens to you you can go through BBB to get your acct. activated to cash out your points.

Opinion world is sending me surveys often but rarely do they offer points but just entries into drawings. My time is worth more than just entries into something I never win. Then if they do offer points I never qualify. Survey spot is owned by the same company and they were giving points for their surveys they have also started offering drawing entries on more surveys and a lot less surveys offer points.

It is now Nov 2019--A few years ago opinion world did terminate my membership but after filing complaints they reinstated me but my points were less. The site has been working good until this week when I click on a survey and get an error page. I contacted them and got a quick response saying use google chrome or firefox which I do and still get errors. I cannot access the survey using IE either so I believe something is wrong on their side. I did recently cash out and received my reward in a few days. I have never been terminated for cashing out.

Absolutely crushed this didn’t work out :( the best surveys I’ve come across and paid well. I earned $10 the first weekend I signed up and they paid me in 24hrs! Amazing. Second round done and hit the claim button and BAM I’m terminated. They wouldn’t answer my calls or emails. Absolutely bummed this didn’t work out.
