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. Threshold amounts vary in countries outside of the US and Canada. 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.

I`ll die of old age before I get sufficient rewards to cash in.

October 29, 2012 by James from United Kingdom

I have been a panel member of Opinion World for some considerable time. I have answered all the surveys that I have been sent and I have mostly been either unqualified for a survey, or had an entry in a draw. I have never cashed in any points during my time with them and my total points for all the effort over about 5 years or so, has been a measly 375.

It is a survey organisation with credibility issues. Pinecone pays a £3 luncheon voucher for each and every survey and it is delivered after about a week. This puts Opinion World nicely into perspective.

This should be the top rated site

September 30, 2012 by Lee from United Kingdom

How Panelbase is ranked the best survey site is beyond me. Opinionworld (for me)is got to be the one at the top. I have been a member for about a year now. I log on most days to the site without waiting for email requests and i tend to get between 1 - 5 Surveys. Yes i do get ' i do not qualify' or ' Survey has reach the required number of response' but even so i have managed to cashout about £350. I payout threw paypal and its instandly into my account.
I am a member of alot of sites (about 25) including most of the top ten listed and i would say i am lucky i have made £30 on each. Apart from Pinecone which i ahve yet to be excepted (Suprise suprise).

I recommend for a certain amount of time

August 29, 2012 by LNatasha from United States

For a certain amount of time, you can make good money here, once you reach around $100 in total from any of their owned sites, you will start to run into problems.

Several days ago I did 1 survey for $10. Now all I get is prize drawing offers. No money.

Tons of surveys and fast rewards

August 8, 2012 by Jeff from United States

I love their "Take A Survey" link. There are always surveys available when I get time to take them. I've been a member of other panels, but you rarely get your rewards as quickly as you do with OpinionWorld.

Customer service is great

July 28, 2012 by kim from United States

I was having tech problems seeing media in the surveys. I read here that people couldn't get help or where ignored. I emailed the company anyway and they responded immediately and solved the problem quickly. Of course I was too late to get any points but maybe next time.
