Who is Consumer Opinion Institute

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

How does it work?

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 postage 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?

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.

My 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!

So far I have done two (or three?) mail surveys (each paid $5), and even  one online survey which also $5, surprised and happy! Payments all arrived in the form of $5 bill in the mail.

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