Opinion Outpost Panel Tips by LapisLee

Editor's Note: This article was originally posted in March 2010. Opinion Outpost has since changed ownership and the look of the site has changed. Therefore, some of the information below may no longer be accurate.

Opinion Outpost is my third best earning website over the last two years. I earned and received $391.80 since February 4, 2008 and here are a few tips that I have for achieving results comparable to mine.

  • Tip #1 - Complete Your Profiles

The first tip after joining Opinion Outpost is to go to

Member's Page and log in to the Dashboard.

Opinion Outpost Login

Then click on the ‘My Profiles’ tab.

Opinion Outpost Profiles Area

Here you will see nine Member Profiles, including General, Health, Household, Technology, Leisure & Activities, Personal Finance, Personal Vehicles, Professional, Shopping and Travel that take about five minutes each to complete. Make certain that you update these at least once per calendar year and more often if you experience a significant change such as moving, purchasing a new vehicle, being diagnosed with a new health condition, etc. that might affect the surveys that you qualify for.

  • Tip #2 - Respond to Survey Invitations as Soon as Possible

Surveys don’t close quite as quickly as with SurveySpot and GTM because they tend to fill more slowly, but I have found that by going to the website daily and clicking on the ‘Available Surveys’ tab in the Opinion Outpost Member's Area you will often find surveys that you have not yet attempted.

  • Tip #3 – Check Your Rewards on Opinion Outpost’s Website

Also located under the ‘Survey History’ tab is a well-organized listing of all of the surveys you have taken with survey status, such as:

Opinion Outpost Survey Status

Surveys marked ‘Closed’ means that you did not click on them soon enough. Surveys that have the word ‘Started’ beside them may have been overlooked and can often be completed, but more often they will allow you to close out the survey and click on the instant $50 reward or $750 Sweepstakes buttons that usually appear after being disqualified from a survey.

  • Tip # 4 – Add Survey Email Addresses to Your Allowed List

Add the email addresses of every survey panel, such as OpinionOutpost.com to your email allow list to make certain that you receive surveys. This goes for every survey panel, especially if you were receiving email invitations and they suddenly stopped. Always check your spam filter to make sure they are being allowed!

Opinion Outpost is one of the very best survey panels for me and has been for over two years. Many good things have come to me from answering their surveys honestly and accurately. Now, you can receive Amazon.com gift certificates instantly if you do not want to wait four to six weeks for a check. If you follow these simple tips, I think you will find they will also become one of your top earning survey panels.

    I really like Opinion Outpost as well. I have only been with the survey panel for a few months, but I have managed to make over $50 with them thus far. I definitely think that paid surveys are a great way to make extra money.
