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.

Used to be good—no more!

August 8, 2020 by Mary from United States

Once upon a time this was a good panel. I always got paid. Then Dynata took over this panel and e-Rewards. I too received emails for both panels stating I wasn’t honest and that I had more than one account and because of that, my account was flagged and suspended. I’ve already contacted BBB.org and suggest anyone who reads this do the same. I also contacted the local Attorney General in Texas where Dynata is located and filed a complaint. If we can get some government agencies to intervene, we may see our money!

Redeeming Cash

August 4, 2020 by suzanne from Australia

I have $470 which I can redeem at the rate of 2 x $20 e-vouchers each day. This is not acceptable. Would donate to charity but the only one available is a US one.

Dishonest Company

July 24, 2020 by Nick from United Kingdom

Be very careful about this company. They have just closed my account on the spurious reason I had more than one account.I don't and I was near redemption level. I don't think they are to be trusted they are dishonest and duplicitous.
Avoid them there are more honest survey companies about.

Excellent

July 7, 2020 by Ritwika from India

The survey site is excellent! And it's very easy to qualify for the surveys because they send you tailored surveys based on your profile. I redeemed a rs 400 amazon gift voucher on 6th July and moreover I earned rs 215 extra within one day! I highly recommend it to everyone else.

Avoid

June 30, 2020 by Ann from United Kingdom

I am in the same position as other reviewers. I have used this site for years with no issue and then they suspended my account for no reason. I contacted them and they say they have reinstated it - I can now log in but for about two months now I have had no survey notifications. There are now surveys showing if I log in, but if I try to complete them I just get a message saying 'no surveys available'. I was very close to getting sufficient earnings to cash in when they did this to me. I am starting to think there is a problem now with the company and they don't want people to be able to get to sufficient earnings to cash in.
