Consumer Opinion Institute Looking for new members

Update 10/30/2014:   Consumer Opinion Institute – Registration is closed!  (please wait for the next round registration ).

Consumer Opinion Institute is a market research survey panel, managed and operated by TNS, one of the world’s leading online market research companies.


Click Here to Join Consumer Opinion Institute  – USA Only, Male  18-24 or 30-54 years old

— Male 25-29 and female ages 18-54 quotas are  full, if you missed this time around please wait for next round sign up, which probably be in a couple of months or maybe even sooner.

Following are some basic information on how it works at Consumer Opinion Institute:

How do I participate in surveys?
Surveys will be sent to you in one of the following ways:

Surveys will be sent to you through the U.S. Mail. Just complete the survey and return it to us in the included pe ostage paid envelope. If you do not have a reply envelope please contact us to have another one sent to you.

When an online survey is available, you will receive an email from asking you to login to After logging in you will be automatically routed to a page with a link to all the surveys you have available. Click on the survey you want to take then follow the instructions on the screen to complete the survey.

How often will I receive a survey from Consumer Opinion Institute?
Your time is valuable to us, we will not waste it. You can expect to receive a survey 1-2 times per month through the US Mail and about once per month online.

What do I receive for taking surveys?
The incentive you receive for your participation varies depending on the survey topic and length. Usually when a survey is sent to you through the US Mail, we will include $1-$5 for your participation. If you are unable to complete the survey, don’t worry, we’ll catch up with you on the next one. For online surveys, we will let you know in the email what the reward is for your participation.

I find it quite interesting that besides online surveys they send surveys by U.S. Mail, and payment will be included in th mail. They only accept US residents into their panel.

This panel doesn’t always open for registration, so I suggest you sign up while they are accepting new members.

Finally I was able to sign up with the panel! Hurry up! Before they close registration again!

My Experience/Review of Consumer Opinion Institute
I have received a $5 cash mail-in paper survey (return envelop provided and postage paid) since I joined a couple of month ago! I look forward to more surveys from them!

  1. I am a member when I go to sign in it says wrong info that is it won’t accept what I type in. So I try to get an e-mail sent for a new password says I don’t exist in your system can’t be signed up in 2009 so not understanding this. Ty for your help

    • Hi Diana, personally I never tried to log into my account, since I have always been receiving mail/paper surveys (along with cash payments) from them, in fact I just received my third survey. Have you ever received mail surveys from them?

  2. Hello i was wondering if the consumer opinion registration application was still available because it keeps taking me to a paid games website..

    • Hi Tisha, It looks like the quota/target groups left are male 18-54, and female 25 – 29 years old…Don’t worry they will re-open those age groups later. Sign up my newsletter and I will post update if registration is open again.

    • Hi Sweetness – I don’t think they are bought by Toluna. They closed registration and the old link redirects to Toluna. I have disabled the link. I will repost this article when they open sign up again. You can get an alert by signing up my newsletter. Thanks for the heads up and sorry about the old link.
