Opinion Outpost Reviews
Is OpinionOutpost.com Legit or a Scam?
is a get paid to take surveys company,
serving only adult residents of the United
States and Canada. You might be a bit
surprised when you first visit their website
because of the western theme but navigating
becomes easier once you get used to it.
In order to sign up with Opinion Outpost
you'd want to click on the town hall icon,
and it will take you to the registration
page. After you register you can go to
the grand hotel which is where your profile
and other pertinent information is.
Initially, you will have ten profile
surveys waiting for you, these surveys are
not rewarded with points. However it's
recommended that you fill out these surveys
since that information will be used to send
you more paid surveys.
The reason that most folks don't receive
as many survey opportunities as they'd like
is because they haven't fully filled out
their profile or taken these intro surveys.
As with other online survey companies
Opinion Outpost rewards you in cash
Their current rate is ten points to one
US dollar, with an average survey paying
between 10 and 100 points. You need to
acquire 50 points before you can cash out
for the minimum of five dollars. In
order to request a payment from Opinion
Outpost you would click on the bank icon;
you can expect a check within 6 weeks.
Each survey that gets emailed to you will
have some quick preliminary questions to
answer to see if you qualify for the survey.
These surveys do have a limit on how many
participants they need so for a higher
chance of acceptance try to respond to the
emails as soon as you get them.
The most important thing to remember with
Opinion Outpost is to stay active. If
you don't attempt to qualify for a survey at
least once every 3 months they will remove
you as an active member and clear your
account of any earned points.

I will never complete another survey for this company again. I have been doing online surveys for many years with a few select survey companies and while Opinion Outpost (an SSI company) used to be a good survey site they have recently gone downhill. I have experienced the same issues as others, kicked out of surveys after having completed dozens of questions, been told I don't qualify after completing a survey and other issues. I have emailed the company several times to no avail. I recently was able to cash out and I will never use them again. I will stick with MYpoints and a few other companies that value people's time and opinions and show it!

They used to be good, but since they own so many other sites they have become the powerhouse. One mistake and you are banned from all sites, this could even be from having 2 surveys open at once. When they want you off their site they will send you surveys that are impossible to answer or only have answers leaving to look like a liar. Then you kicked out. They are snakes in the grass! I have heard you can go the BBB and fight for your money; not sure though.

I don't know what people are complaining about. I still use this site quite effectively. I did have a cashout problem once but it resolved it self by the next day. Paypal cash out is quick and clean. I use it about every other day.

Great Site. I've made over $20 the first week since I've joined. The Amazon code was emailed to me within A MINUTE of redemption. Yes, within a minute, not weeks as on other sites. I have tried many other survey sites and this is the best by far!

Spent a bunch of time doing surveys, so excited to cash out $10 for 100 points. I knew it was too good to be true. Account frozen. Emails dont do anything. SCAM SCAM SCAM and I'm totally disappointed. :(

Have been a member for 2 years, the site has become simply awful. Technical problems, payment problems, unresponsive customer service. Deleting my account.

Just took an hour long Survey to finally make it to 100 points ($10) and tried to cash out like I always have and I got a message saying that my account had been frozen due to data concerns!! Had been a member for yrs and never had problems cashing out! The last few months though I have noticed I am taking surveys and getting 3/4 way through or even finishing surveys, only to get a message that says I didn't qualify or that they filled the quota for my group. CROOKS! YES IT'S A SCAM!!!!

Accumulated 90 opinion points then had my account frozen due to "data concerns" -- you need 100 to cash out.
Majority of the surveys disqualify you after 5 minutes and vastly misrepresent the amount of time needed.
Anyway, this website is a scam, had a feeling from the start.

I would give this company a zero rating if I could. Used to be great until they merged with another company and now they are dreadful. Head on over to Mysuvey. You do not get as many surveys, but at least you don't go through 3/4 of a survey just to be booted out like you do with Opinion Outpost. Do yourself a favor, find some other ways to make money or join a different survey panel!

Do not join this site- since they changed over- they have become a ripoff company!
I have been told that I do not qualify about 6 times this weekend, after having spend 30 minutes on a survey and completing the survey
They are con men

When I first started doing surveys about 4 years ago, this was one of my firsts and one of my favorites (I still can see that cowgirl that used to be on the page). Well done surveys, no problems in payments, etc. Very enjoyable.
I have to agree with many others on here; it had slowly been going downhill for me and then really bad after the changes.
I find I have provided quite a bit of feedback only to be told I wasn't qualified OR they reached their desired number of responses. Very frustrating and a feeling of being cheated.
My main problem though is something I see a few other Canadians are having. At first I was thrilled they were offering Paypal. However I cannot get this verified through their site! "We cannot process your request at this time" BUT the disturbing thing is I opened a new browser to check my Paypal and I was automatically logged in! Any savvy techs out there? I'm guessing it has to do with their system, right?
1) they have not addressed why this happened
2) initial email responses "please ensure your name, if initials or other, is the exactly the same as your Paypal" OK, it isn't, doesn't say anywhere (or at least I haven't found it) it should be to cash out. Don't have this problem with any of my other panels either.
Asked them to please make this change on my OO profile then since I wouldn't be changing my Paypal info (affects too many things) and of course I can't adjust this myself on my OO profile.
They have refused to do this and suggested please use the other reward options. I don't use Amazon.com only Amazon.ca, with Citibank I would have to set up an account (!?) and I read about others having the restaurant offer but it's not one of my options offered. Other option, of course is their kind offer to donate all my points.
Frustrating, but a little relieved I'm not the only one with these same problems.

Stay away from this company, Not worth it. You MAYBE get to complete 1 survey out of 5. After filling out 50-80% of their surveys you get excluded even though you already spent up to 20 Minutes filling it out. And you can bet they still sell that information! CROOKS! SAVE YOUR TIME AND STAY AWAY!

I been with this company for years till they changed there website. I haven't had a problem with them until recently. My understanding is they merged with SurveySpot and now they are not doing as well.
Overall they are a good company, just are having some problems. Maybe they will get back on track.

awesome website. free money for answering silly questions? hah why not?
i have redeemed the money and it does really work. although...like other people on this website it seems that opinion outpost did something to mess up in the last few months
every so often the survey will glitch out or especially it will disqualify you after spending 20 minutes answering the questions...
but over all a good site!

I used to work at a very high level at Opinion Outpost. Up until the first of the year (2012), the company was extremely well run and panelists were treated fairly and compensated in kind. However, things all changed four months ago with a shift in business philosophy. Now panelists are very often excluded after answering questions for 20-30 minutes and are not paid, even though the information collected is still sold to OO's clients. I would suggest you not participate in the OO panel and complain to their clients for their unethical business practices.

If you sign up for Opinion Outpost, prepare to get screwed. First you go through a series of "Personal Profile Surveys" so that they "can select surveys better suited to you". Except they never refer to that data, you will repeatedly get survey's that you are excluded from within the first few questions that you had long ago answered in the bogus Personal Profile. They also seem to send a significant number of surveys that will let you get 1/2 to 3/4 finished before it disqualifies you. The hours wasted filling out surveys that you'll be disqualified from are not worth the pittance they pay for the few you'll actually be able to complete.
Then, they don't send you a cheque anymore, you have to cash out through paypal (with it's associated cash-out fees). Oh, that's if they're system happens to be working that day, and so far my experience is that it's not.
If I ever get the money they owe me, I'm pulling out completely and going somewhere trustworthy like Angus Ried.

I used to do fine with Opinion Outpost...until I got divorced from my husband.
I promptly updated my Opinion Outpost account with my new address...and then noticed I stopped getting survey invites from them. I contacted support, and they said they already had me listed via another account. Some investigation showed that my ex-husband had opened his own Opinion Outpost account, and since I still have his last name and my old address is of course where he still lives...they thought it was a duplicate account.
Now I do understand why they would flag it as questionable, HOWEVER, I cleared it up for them - even offered to fax my change of address form from the post office as proof that I have, indeed, moved and no longer live there. They said it wouldn't be a problem, and re-activated my account...
...with one problem - ALL of my current earnings were gone! I was told "Ooops! It reset" and there was nothing they could do about it. I had over $20 in there and they reset it to $0. What a crock! I haven't bothered re-starting with them; I figure it's just a matter of time before they gyp me out of more earnings!
