Online Survey Company Review: Opinion Outpost

Opinion Outpost Online Survey Company review comes to you courtesy of fellow Blogger Karen. Karen is a fellow deal blogger that shares her deals and money saving tips on her blog “Koupon Karen.”

1. How does this online survey company work?

When you take surveys with Opinion Outpost, you earn points which you can then turn into cash or amazon gift cards. 10 points = $1.00. Most surveys are worth about 20 – 40 points and some more. They will ask you questions before each survey to better match you with future surveys.

2. What do you like about how this online company works?

Opinion Outpost is one of my favorite survey sites. You can check your account to see if you have any available surveys and it tells you right there how much it’s worth and how long it should take. They also will send you an email letting you know there are surveys available. There site is very easy to use and easy to find what your looking for. I receive about 5-10 surveys a week, I don’t always qualify for them, but I do for a lot!

3. What don’t you like about how this company works?

There isn’t much I don’t like about them except I wish you received a small amount even when you don’t qualify, even if it was just 1 point. It adds up after a while and would make it worth my time.

4. Please share your results with this company: How much $$ you have earned, in how much time and how much effort you have put into it?

In a matter of a month, I easily earn $25 dollars or more, when I put the time into it. It varies for me if I have the time to take the surveys.

5. Finally: Would you recommend this online company to a friend yes or no and why?

I would totally recommend Opinion Outpost to anyone. They have a nice variety of surveys, I receive a lot of survey invites each week and they are really good about asking questions to match you the best that they can. And they pay you!!! I’ve even contacted customer service in the past and they were really helpful.

    I remember to join this site… but when I try to enter to my account this message appears:

    This e-mail address has been unsubscribed and is no longer a member of Opinion Outpost. Please contact us for assistance.

    Contact Customer Support.
    ph: 877-254-1234

    Any clue of Why this message appears? :/

  • I love Opinion Outpost too! I feel like the $$ you get for the amount of time spent is very reasonable, as well as the $5 cashout. I always opt for ‘instant win’ chance if I do not qualify for a survey – I have never won, but my sister did – $50 instantly! They also have a generous ($2 per person) referral program.

  • Hate to sound too negative, but after several months of doing their surveys and NEVER qualifying for a SINGLE one, I dropped my account with them. It was very time consuming – they don’t just have you answer a few questions to qualify, often times I felt like I was doing the whole darn survey, then at the end it told me, “too bad”. I was pretty disappointed.

    I completely agree with Rebecca. In fact, I just unsubscribed last week. This survey company is a complete rip off in my opinion. You answer lots of question only to be told you don’t qualify after they have everything they wanted to know without having to reward you with anything.

    I have been a member of Opinion Outpost for a few years now and I enjoy doing their surveys. They never seem to take as long as some of the other sites I belong to. And I did win $50 recently in the instant win.

    I signed up in Feb. and really didn’t start getting alot of surveys until mid march, but since then, I’ve made $15. I received the checks very quickly too. I’ve noticed that if I’ve gone a little while without getting a survey, if I log in, then I start getting them more frequently. So far its been a good experience.

    If you are reading this, you may be like me and thousands of other individuals who pursue survey-based services online where our opinion provides an invaluable resource to product manufacturers, businesses, service providers, etc. and where our time is rewarded with compensation. I, myself, have been a member of many different paid survey services for a few years now and have had both excellent and very unfavorable experiences.

    I was shocked and appalled to find out that Opinion Outpost was rated the #1 paid survey service available, yet through my experience this is by far the worst service of which I have ever been a member. I know I am not alone in saying that Opinion Outpost is notorious for taking advantage of their “cherished and valued” members, providing horrific customer service and ultimately giving survey-based services overall a marred reputation.

    I was a member of Opinion Outpost for many years only to have my account flagged on several occasions for no apparent cause and/or reason. When your account is flagged you receive no survey opportunities until this flag is removed. I had to contact customer service numerous times about this issue because they never notified me that my account status had ever changed. No explanation was ever given regarding this matter and in the end my evaluation of their customer relations is that they provide inadequate, unprofessional, prejudiced and demeaning customer service with an overall lack of concern.

    If this is not enough to make anyone avoid this detestable service and seek out superior avenues, here is a list of more irritably-frustrating experiences which ultimately led me to throw in the towel:
    – They require you to sacrifice many hours of your time to provide an enormous amount of personal/sensitive information for which they give you ZERO compensation.
    – Time and time again I have answered up to 50 questions for a single survey, providing so much useful data, only to find out that I did not qualify and thus received no compensation for my time and information provided.
    – They allow their partners to covertly steal your information without compensation and/or notification… let alone permission. When you confront Opinion Outpost about such matters they respond by asking if you would like them to close your account as this is common practice.
    – I can honestly say that I only qualified for 10% of the surveys they ever sent me. This equates to many hours of wasted time, confusion, frustration and utter annoyance.

    Through a lot of time and wasted energy I know now that I am better off not maintaining my membership with Opinion Outpost. I hope that this review will save at least one person their precious time, effort and frustration through which myself and many other members have direly suffered.

    On a side note: I have personally known other members of Opinion Outpost who have had nothing but problems similar to my own. Only a minute number of individuals have ever been satisfied by their service. I would not be surprised to find out that many of the positive reviews one can find regarding Opinion Outpost were written by employees or affiliates.

    Some claim they provide the highest rate of compensation for a free service (?). But at what price?

      I wish I had read your post earlier. It happened with me too.

      I’ve been a memeber of OO since 4 months now, and today I was unable to log into account and got an error message stating my account has been temporarily frozen.

      I contacted OO customer service, and just got a mail that my account has been unsubscribed, and they’ll look into the matter. It’s Friday, so I assume I wont get any answer until next week.

      I enjoy taking surveys and have alreday accumulated around $90 in my account, and about $60 I havent cashed out.

      Now I’m reading reviews of people and it seems that they suspend accounts of those individuals who have high balance in their accounts.

      I invested so much time into this coz I enjoy taking surveys!

      Lets see what they say now!

    Been a member since August and thoroughly enjoyed my experience with Opinion Outpost. Got a check in mail once already and have a balance of 70+ dollars right now, waiting to be cashed. My favorite survey panel.
