REDEEMING REWARDS

$10 minimum account balance required for rewards redemption.

Valued Opinions, established in 2004, is an online survey panel operated by Dynata. The panel is available in over 15 languages across more than 20 different countries and has over 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.

One notable difference between Valued Opinions and other paid surveys is the amount they pay per survey. You can expect to earn between $1 and $5 for each survey you complete. The surveys offered are more detailed and may take longer to complete, but you can still expect to rack up decent earnings in a reasonable amount of time.

How Valued Opinions Works

Joining is Easy

You can register a free Valued Opinions account within minutes - simply enter your name, address, email address and desired password on the registration page. If you prefer, you can link your Facebook account and register using the details stored there.

You’ll be prompted to fill more information in your profile after you’ve registered - and doing so will improve your chances of being eligible for a wide range of surveys.

Account Profile = More Surveys

There are 20 categories in which you are prompted to share information about yourself. This includes your political beliefs, shopping habits and health conditions. Chances are that you won’t be eligible for many surveys until you fill out your profile, so it’s in your interests to do this as fully as possible

Once you’ve filled out your profile, you’ll see the surveys available to you on the main dashboard. You’ll be notified of the reward for doing so before you start - and will be instantly rewarded once you’ve finished. Once you’ve accumulated at least $10 in your Valued Opinions account, you’ll be eligible to convert these credits into virtual gift cards.

Payment and Rewards

Survey Details

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.

For every survey completion, you will receive "cash" deposited into your account immediately after completing a survey. This can be converted into a wide range of digital retail vouchers.

Survey Rewards

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, though are very similar in other countries.

Some reward cards come with a “premium” attached. For example, it’ll cost you $22 worth of points to purchase a $20 Amazon voucher - and a $20 prepaid Visa card will cost you $25 worth of points. So, it’s worth taking the time to explore if you’re likely to use any of the gift cards available without a premium.

Rewards Redemption

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. You can also donate your points to charity, including UNICEF.

They take a cut of your 'earnings'

June 17, 2022 by rose (laura) from United States

This company made me work to earn $22 gift certificate to amazon, and THEN only paid me $20. I sent lightshot copies and asked why, thinking it was a mistake, and they said it was their policy. So i've not been interested in going back when this wasn't upfront.
NO OTHER survey company takes part of the survey money.

excellent

Really good and they quickly exit you from the survey if not qualified as long as you completed your profile & you also get accepted for more surveys. Cashout is via voucher & is sent instantly to your inbox.

Poor Review

June 8, 2022 by Nancy from United States

I have been with this site for many years than all of a I do not get any surveys for a long time. I built up an amount of $77.50. And when I tried to collect, they implied that my account was suspended because there were to many errors. Practically accused me of lying. Very upset and disappointed.

what has happened??

May 17, 2022 by Linda from United States

I used to think this was one of the best survey sites available, however for the past few months I have been having issues collecting the survey rewards points I am entitled to after completing the more "long term" studies. I used to be rewarded promptly at the start of the month following my participation but nowadays, I must cower and send an email begging to be rewarded. This is unacceptable to my way of thinking. Participating in long-term studies is usually boring, time consuming and not so much fun but getting rewarded for it makes it not so bad. Well.....maybe it's time to just say bye-bye.

February 12, 2022 by barry from United Kingdom
