Opinion Outpost – Survey Site Review (March 2013)

————————————

WARNING: There have been a large number of complaints we have received related to Opinion Outpost being very glitch-y. The latter issue both myself and my team have been affected to some degree. So we found it paramount to disclose this information to anyone wanting to sign-up with this site.

Do They Spam You: No

Overall Rating: 2 out of 5Opinion Outpost is yet again having some serious site wide issues. There has been a major increase in the overall difficulty of qualifying for the reward promised. I have often found myself almost 50% or more into a survey. When I am kicked or glitch-ed out for no reason (What So Ever). I don’t even get the screen. That asks me if I want to try for an Instant Prize/Donate/ or Leave.

That is honestly a really rather sad situation. When we put in the time and effort into said survey. And are receiving ABSOLUTELY nothing in return, other then the run around or just really rather lame excuses why it is our fault. That to me is just unacceptable.

————————————

Extra Important Information: You must complete your full profile as well as update it at least once a year. To continue to receive your survey invites from Opinion Outpost. If you fail to do so, Opinion Outpost will just stop sending you survey invites to you without any warning at all.

    Hi Remy

    Today I tried to use paypal in Globaltestmarket, it has $10, $15, $20, and $100 for me to choose. So I tried $20 because it said I only need 485 points. But after I chose it, it said I need a minimum of 1000 points to redeem, I don’t understand. So I tried to redeem it by cheque, but it changed to 1100 points from 1000 points. I cannot redeem the points by both method. It’s ridiculous!!

    Best regards,

      Dear Mana,

      In this case I imagine it is a glitch on their end. So there is not much. I can say or advise you on in this case.

        Hi Remy

        They explained to me finally. It’s like this. Let say they have 243 points for $10 paypal, 364 points for $15 paypal, 485 points for $20 paypal. You will need to add up the points over 1000 points. If you have 1000 points only, you can redeem by paypal because total add up not over 1000 points. You must have at least 1200 points. You cannot only use 243 points for $10 paypal. I thought I can redeem part of my 1000 points in the beginning. Now they also need 1100 points for cheque. So it’s no use for new reward methods. I rather use cheque.

        For 3 survey sites, Mysurvey, globaltestmarket, OO. I rather choose OO. Because they allow to redeem $10 for 100 points.

        I found a lot of complaints in globaltestmarket facebook page. Some people said this is not fair and they are going to report to survey police, BBB, or quit.

        Best regards,

        Mana

          Dear Mana,

          Thanks for the heads up and clarification on OO.

          ———————

          My 3 survey sites would be Web Perspectives, Angus Reid and then OO.

          ———————

          PS: Thanks for the heads up on Survey Police. This is actually the first time I have heard of them.

            Hi Remy

            I also first time heard of web perspectives, but their reward option not include paypal and cheque. Gift card and donation only. I found that Globaltestmarket is now with perks.com, just like Mysurvey. All the rewards are from them.

            About Angus Reid, I only earn $45 since I joined. They don’t have much survey for me. The best thing is, I never disqualify in this site. There is one question, do they remove the money you earned if you didn’t reach $50 in a long time (1 year) ?

            OO has lot of surveys since the end of April, less error occur. Last time I found that I cannot redeem points, they told me that my brower (firefox 3.628) is out of date. They asked me to use 20.03, after I use it, there is no problem to redeem. For this month, I have earned more than 700 points.

            I hope that globaltestmarket (GMI) will have more surveys for me in the coming week, so that I can redeem the points. I will redeem the points by cheque. Their rule for paypal option is too strict.

            Best regards,

            Mana

          • Remy "Se7en" says:

            Dear Mana,

            Yeah, a huge negative aspect of Web Perspectives for sure.

            ———————

            I’m not sure about Angus Reid having any such end of year earnings reset. My money earned seemed to stay the same. Even after New Years.

            ———————

            Now about OO and your browser being out of date. the latest version is actually 21.0 now. It actually does make a big diffidence for most survey sites.

    Hi Remy

    Yesterday I post a comment here, but don’t know why it disappeared today.

    I post it again. May is the best month since I joined OO. I earned over 800 points and I redeemed 600 points yesterday. So happy, I wish I can go on like this. You know the spin game? I thought that was for US resident only, but I tried to play on http://www.opinionoutpost.com, it worked . I spined 20 points. But it’s too late, I only can play 2 times because I knew it on May 29. The last day was May 30. I hope they will have the game again.

    I finally have enough points in Globaltestmarket, but I found that if I redeemed by paypal, I only got $45. If I use cheque, I still can have $50. I rather wait for 4 weeks then. Today is Monday, I don’t see any holidays in this month, do you think today is the best day to redeem by cheque?

    Best regards,

    Mana

    • Remy "Se7en" says:

      Dear Mana,

      First off your comment did come thought. I was just not online to approve it. So you would not be able to see it on your end.

      ————————

      That is great to hear your able to earn so much from OO.

      ————————

      Q: You know the spin game ?

      Answer: Yes I’ve seen it off an on though the years. But it has been a long while. Since I have been able to spin and win.

      ————————

      Q: Do you think today is the best day to redeem by cheque ?

      Answer: YES, Mondays are always the best day to redeem. Yeah, go for it.

    Hi Remy

    This week is a quiet week for OO. I don’t receive any invitation or receive surveys by clicking “Take a survey” button. I earn 0 points since Monday. I hope I can receive survey soon.

    I received many surveys from globaltestmarket this week and last week. The highest points is 80 yesterday. I am still waiting for the $50 cheque which I redeemed on June 3.

    For Mysurvey, I still need 5 more points to redeem, I didn’t redeem any money from them since March.

    Best regards,

    Mana

    • Remy "Se7en" says:

      Dear Mana,

      Thanks for the update. Oddly enough in my case a got a bunch of OO surveys invites. As well as “take a survey” opportunities. But I can’t remember how many points I earned overall.

      Later Dayz,

      Remy

    Hi Remy

    Just heard the news from OO facebook. Said OO will have system maintenance on June 13, Thursday 8 am est to 9 am est. During the maintenance , we are not able to log in to the account. Do you think that they will erase all our redeem records and the current opinions points balance? I see there are many worries in OO facebook and no one come out to say anything. I still have more than 400 points inside.

    Best regards,

    Mana

    • Remy "Se7en" says:

      Dear Mana,

      They may clean up older records. But it makes no sense to ZERO out peoples accounts. I understand the concern thou. But if they do, do something stupid like that they will lose a lot of their users so it would not make economic sense for them to do that.

      Lets hope it goes off without a hitch. But also know there may indeed be issues when they are back up.

      PS: The new Opinion Outpost review will go up June 25th, 2013 at 12:15 am EST.

        Hi Remy

        The points still there in OO and finally completed 1 survey today worth 25 points. But the website is loading very slow after the maintenance. Have you experience the same problem? I have sent them a message , hope that they will correct the issue.

        I finally can redeem the points in Mysurvey today. I received 4 surveys but only 1 completed. That’s sad.

        I hope the cheque from Globaltestmarket arrive soon, I redeemed it on June 3. Last time, I received the cheque within 2 weeks.

        Best regards,

        Mana

    Hi Remy

    Today I just redeemed points from Mysurvey and found that they also changed the redemption rule. We now only need 1638 points to redeem a $15 paypal, also only need 1000 points to redeem $10 paypal. That’s very good . I don’t know why Globaltestmarket need to add up all paypal money although you have 1000 points. For the past few days, I only completed 1 survey out of 9 in Globaltestmarket, all suddenly screenout when I reached 90%.

    And in OO, I earned more than 120 points last week, and hope I also can have about the same this week.

    Best regards,

    Mana

    Hi Remy

    Last week was a very disappointed week in OO, I only earned 50 points , less surveys. I only recieved 1 or 2 surveys average last week and only 5 points for each survey. I hope this week will be better.

    I still didn’t receive my cheque in globaltestmarket, I redeemed the cheque on June 3 and still got nothing until today. Last month, I only need to wait for 2 weeks to receive the cheque, don’t know why it takes so long this time. Also I only got 1 survey for last week and received more than 10 surveys.

    Mysurvey becomes more better now, I received the $15 paypal in 2 days, it’s very fast. I received many surveys last week, so I almost earned 1000 points again. I will try $10 paypal this time.

    Best regards,

    Mana

    Why do I receive MANY emails advising me there is a survey and and then told No Surveys available at this time. This happens over and over again.
