Is OpinionsUSA legit or scam?
OpinionsUSA is an online survey community built by toluna goup, who is one of the global market research companies. Personally I just signed up and haven’t earned enough points to cash out, but I have heard other members been paid, therefore I am confident that OpinionsUSA is a legitimate online survey site.
OpinionsUSA members earn points by participating in surveys and other activities (such as polls, product testing and focus groups). Points can be redeemed for electronic gift cards that you receive immediately after you request them on the reward page of the member account dashboard.
Every time you participate in a survey or other activity, you will earn points. 100 points = $1.00 toward the gift card of your choice. When you reach 2000 points you can redeem for a $20 gift card – choices include Amazon, Target, Starbucks, Amex and Reward Link. Reward Link allows you to choose from a wide variety of additional gift card options.
How to earn points at OpinionsUSA
Members can points by doing following activities:
- Taking online survey 5- 25 minutes: earn 125 to 625 points
- Taking Surveys but do not qualify: earn 25 points
- Quick Poll: 10 points
- Special activities, such as online focus groups, live chats, etc, start at 500 points and can go much higher depending on the project
My OpinionsUSA Review
I just joined the OpinionsUSA survey panel less than a week ago (November 27th), and today I already received an email from OpinionsUSA informing me about this month (December)’s new polls. I logged into my account, and took the one question poll, and earned 10 points.
Under the “My Surveys” page, there are three surveys for new members, I took the first two surveys, and earn 125 points for each survey. The points showed up under the “Rewards” page almost immediately. The two surveys are short and easy profile surveys only took less than 5 minutes to complete! So right now, my account balance is 260 points already!
Besides new member surveys, there are a couple of “regular” surveys also available for me. I will take these two surveys later and the other new member survey later, and of course I will update my survey experience at OpinionsUSA along the way!
Conclusion – Should I join OpinionsUSA?
Yes, you should definitely join OpinionsUSA survey panel! Even as a brand new panel member, I can tell with my limited experience so far that OpinionsUSA is a legitimate and good online survey site where you can earn great gift card rewards while expressing your opinion!
