Valued Opinions is an online survey panel operated by ResearchNow. The panel is available in over 15 languages across more than 20 different countries and has 3 million members! Valued Opinions members receive "cash" redeemable for vouchers for each survey they participate in and quarterly cash draws for members are also held.
Most surveys taken with Valued Opinions reward between $1 and $5, although at times you may be sent unpaid surveys to help with identifying your unique interests. The typical survey takes 15-20 minutes to complete, however the estimated time is always outlined beforehand.
Points can be redeemed for the following rewards once a minimum of $10 is collected: Visa promo codes, CVS/pharmacy e-gift cards, Fragrance.net e-gift cards, Magazines.com gift codes, Spa Week e-gift codes, Macy's offline gift cards, Amazon.com vouchers, Chillis gift cards, Restaurant.com e-gift cards, iTunes e-gift cards, and Southwest Rapid Reward Points. These rewards apply to USA members, and may vary based on location.
Electronic gift vouchers are typically delivered within 24 hours. It can take up to 28 days to receive an offline (physical) gift card in the mail.
Valued Opinions offers a unique program which involves its more active members collecting “badges” for their level of participation! There are 5 levels that can be achieved with mini tasks that must be completed. The five levels are listed from lowest to highest.

Been a Diamond member for a few years but they are going downhill. Currently hardly any surveys. Also be aware that if you select Love2shop vouchers that you only have 6 weeks or so in which to use them. Neither company inform you of this. I took longer and lost access to them and they cannot be resent. Presumably ValuedOpinions and Love2shop share the proceeds which took me months to earn. Disgraceful, bordering on illegal.
Very disappointed with this survey site. Was one of my favourite survey sites. There were always lots of surveys and I would have completed about 5 a week and the surveys were interesting and varied. That was until I became a Diamond member and the surveys suddenly dried up. I've been told I don't qualify for any I've attempted since that time. I now don't bother with Valued Opinions.
Since good review back in march 2017, they seem to becoming more careless again, offering lots of surveys on the desktop which disappear as soon as you try to enter them. Still not bad, but NOT AS GOOD as they were earlier inn 2017
Since a Critical Review I created back in Dec 2013 I must admit that recently Valued Opinions has improved greatly and is possible on of the best out there at present.
Their payment per survey is reasonable, they pay out rewards VERY promptly, often better than One hour, and apart from the 50p admin charge (why, surely that is factored in to the survey reward?) they are good.
Do keep logging in however as many surveys that appear on your desktop never get emailed out (presumably filled quickly).
My only niggle (and not just Valued Opinions) is the lack of correlation between the info we provide in our profiles and the surveys we get sent for which "you are not qualified/suitable" occurs when you start.
Maybe if all survey companies HAD to pay a consolation of 10% for surveys we're screened out of, they'd be a bit more careful in matching panelist to surveys.
That said, Valued Opinions is well worth joining
Worked fine for years. All of a sudden, surveys don't load, but page hangs.....I have contacted several times. First time, suggested fixes didn't work, and NO MORE RESPONSE....
Okay, now they have blocked me.. Apparently they think I am not being truthful or thoughtful in my responses. Because many questions are repetitive or ridiculous, so my answers are often repetitive..However they ARE my honest opinion and I am disappointed.
UPDATE. Continue to tell me I have violated their terms..and yes, look how many months later. Still will not tell me HOW?? Canned response and wil not let me cash in my measly $10 reward. Their customer service, then, is bogus and I do not recommend them any longer. They have really lost any credibility. As others have said, they changed and they suck.
