Guys, what's with the bad ratings? In my first few weeks, I earned 30 bucks. In my first 2 months, I earned 150 bucks. And this is just from 1 survey panel. Yes, I do get "you did not qualify for this survey" or "The quota of this survey has been met", but this is really a great, High paying survey company. Yes, they do not send you lots of survey invitations, but if you go to their website and click the button "take a survey" They have 3-10 surveys every day. This is truly one of my favourite survey panels. So what are you waiting for? Join!!

Survey Sampling International, the parent to SurveySpot, Opinion World, Opinion Outpost and others is one of the worst survey companies. If you are a member or decide to join, beware! There will be many, many occasions the surveys will error and you will not be paid -a lot of time invested for free, and then one day youâ€™ll find yourself locked out, unable to redeem your rewards. The only explanation you will receive if even that, you have violated their terms of service. Hint: You never did. Don't be afraid to report them. Beware of these companies. *You can find this same info posted over the Internet by countless individuals, these are by far not my words alone.

Opinion World is run by the same company that runs Survey Spot (and now Opinion Outpost), so it's very similar in structure to these two larger panels. I've been a member for about five months, and have received 30 survey invites. Unfortunately, most of the correspondence from Opinion World seems to be fraught with errors, including invalid links to surveys as well as emails intended/written for some of SSI's other panels.
I've only managed to complete one survey for $0.50 while being a member, by going through the "Take a Survey" link on Opinion World's website, so I've got a long way to go before cashing out.

I have been a member of Opinion World for several months and have only been able to redeem once. The main reason is that most of their surveys do not offer a fair amount of points for the time that needs to be invested so I don't even bother taking those. Some of their surveys don't even offer any points. The few surveys that I have completed were fairly interesting. This site has the same owner as Survey Spot. The 2 sites are pretty similar although I have been more successful with Survey Spot. If you don't belong to too many survey sites I would recommend this site. If you are already pressed for time I would not recommend this site as there are several better options out there.

You expect to be filling out surveys and making points to exchange for cash and prizes......well don't hold your breath. Every single survey you take is for charity, so no points for you =(. Although you do get entered into a sweepstakes...that isn't what we all are looking forward to...The only reason this site is getting as good of a rating as I'm giving it, is because it's set up really nice besides the fact that the webpages will have you going to page 1 and page 2 for 30 minutes trying to find out a little bit of information. You'll be spiraling in circles for a good time your first use. I think they're more focused on referring you to another page rather than just giving you the answer and info that you need. Overall this website is confusing and unrewarding for the public. I could be wrong though so give it a look and keep in mind that I could be one of the millions that have a bad experience.

I'm surprised this survey company hasn't made it to the top ten list yet!
I absolutely love this survey company, been a member for less than 4-5 months, and do surveys almost daily! They don't normally send emails to you, you should log in to your account and take a survey, because there is usually plenty available! I've tested around 3-4 products so far with this survey company, and I enjoy testing new products, and which also means extra points! I cash out probably once a week (1000 points = $10), but trying to save up for something big this time! They can pay you by paypal or send a voucher to you immediately to cash out for Gift Cards or E-Gift Cards (lots of choices!), you receive the E-Gift Cards right away! No weeks of waiting! Don't miss out on this one!
