Other Notes
Please note that your points will never expire as long as you are a active members, which means that as long as you have any survey/community participation within a year from your registration date, your points will be valid and you can either redeem or continue to collect for higher incentive rewards.

Since joined the panel, I have received a few online focus groups or telephone interviews that rewards from $50 – $100 but so far no luck yet. I also receive regular online surveys from Inspired Opinions with reasonable good reward points. I am not sure how they pay for Focus Groups but I think it’s still cash payment. Inspired Opinions definitely is legitimate survey site so I have no doubt that I will have no payment issues.

My Update:

I have been paid $15 through check for a “online kitchen diary” project. It was a fun and rewarding experience.

Over all, I think Inspired Opinions is a pretty good survey panel and I recommend it.

  3. Thanks for sharing your experience Greg…I am sorry (and surprised) to hear the visa card situation. Have you tried to contact Inspired Opinions regarding the expired card and ask them to re-issue the card? Anyway, thanks again for the warning and it definitely will help others. Regards.

  4. I participated in a survey for Inspired Opions earlier this year. After participation, they gave each participant a VISA gift card for $150. I’ve received these before and assumed it had a 1 or 2 year life. The card is dark in color and it is difficult to read to information labled near the date stamped on the card. I got the card in April and the card indicated 04/12. I assumed it was an issue date. My big mistake. That was the EXPIRATION date; I had about 3 weeks to use the card or lose it. When I did try to use the card, it was already expired. I wasted my time – 3 hours to and from Chicago plus about 1.5 hours there. If you participate, use the reward card IMMEDIATELY. I will not waste my time again; as far as I am concerned, a short lifetime on the reward should have been indicated when it was provided as most cards have a 2 year lifetime. Best bet…take any card you get and walk directly to your enarest retailer and spend it on something.
