$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, e-gift cards, gift codes, Spa Week e-gift codes, Macy's offline gift cards, vouchers, Chillis gift cards, 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.

Dont jump to conclusions?

September 17, 2010 by Chris from United States

Wow... to the guy below me.. Ever heard of server or website maintainence? The site was down for under 24 hours and all my credits are still there. As far as the company itself they have payed me about 1.50-2.00 per survey which is about average. The surveys were medium length but very fun and honed in on my intrests. All and all one of the top 3 sites for me, please don't just to conclusions like this disturbed guy below me.

Best survey experience yet!

Valued Opinions is by far my favorite. I used to get completed pummeled with emails from a different survey company that offered nothing but sweepstakes entries. Valued Opinions has not sent me any Spam and the surveys have almost always been worth the time - anywhere from $2 to $10 I got on one. I just cashed out another Amazon gift card - this company gives you cash toward Amazon, Macy's, others. I haven't had any problems getting paid, their website is easy to use.

Love them

I just joined Valued Opinions in Dec 2007 and Today I received my first payment. How cool is that :) With other survey companies, I've waited for months and months, sometimes a whole year but never reached a payout. They are purely genuine and they send 4-5 surveys per month offering reward from 1.5- 10 $. I did get 10$ at one survey. I received my reward within seconds of requesting it. So I would say customer service ROCKS!!. Do join, Highly Recommended.

Better than most

I've been with Valued Opinions for about 5 months. I'll admit, I wasn't really putting forth the effort at first. When i actually did, my account reached a payout. Instant Amazon certs are great. I'm $2 shy of another cashout, which is pending. Things credit within 28 days of completing the survey. So far, I've completed about 15 surveys, and the total is over $50.00
So, I highly suggest this site. They have several other choices in certificates as well.
