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.

this panel is for bottom-feeders

May 14, 2012 by Al from United States

Surveys are tedious, incentive awards are very hard to earn and there are tons of screen-outs. Depending on the client demographic target, you'll be lucky if you earn a total of $10 to $25 for the entire year. A legit survey company that has very low monthly incentive yields, unless of course, you are lucky enough to win one of their sweepstakes.... Don't hold your breath though.

Opinion World aka Survey Spot + more

April 11, 2012 by Paula from United States

Opinion World is a sub panel for Survey Spot. They also own Opinion Outpost and PCH surveys. They are 4 sub par panels instead of 1 great one. I ran into trouble when they froze my Survey Spot & Opinion Outpost accts. because I had 2 different email addys. Well, DUH! I was perfectly fine until SS took over. Had to choose 1 email for both accts which meant I stood to lose points on one or the other. All of these are basically time wasters.

no incentive's what so ever

Have been registered with them for apout two years and have never yet received a survey. Have tried on numerous occasions to log in with the details THEY have sent to me but I CANNOT.
Have asked, and asked for reasons, but, to date have not received an answer, exce[pt that they lkeep sending log-oin details! My advice is do not waste your time

OpinionWorld pays out "INSTANTLY" when you cash out

September 17, 2010 by Frank from Canada

I have to say I'm very impressed with OpinionWorld
I decided to cash out my points today & they use Paypal as a payment method...& as soon as I cashed out..no more than 2 secs later I received an email stating that the money was in my account...:)
Other survey companies need to follow suit with them & pay us right away when we cash out....This company gets a big "THUMBS UP" from me....though they only offer up a limited number of surveys each month...they are ligit...Green
