Website of the week Wednesday: Opinion Outpost

I discovered Opinion Outpost about six weeks ago, but it has quickly become one of my favorite survey sites and I wish I would have discovered it a lot sooner!  On average, the surveys pay between $1.50 and $3 and most surveys only take about 5-10 minutes to complete.  Since I joined, I have already been able to deposit $36 in our 100% cash Christmas account, which is more than I’ve made from any other survey company recently.  Their turn around time is also very fast – my check arrived less than a week after I cashed out!

How it Works

Once you register, you will receive e-mails about potential surveys you may qualify for.  When you click on the link, you will have to answer a few quick “screener” questions.  If you qualify for the survey, you will then be directed to the survey.  If you don’t qualify for the survey, sometimes they will ask you if you want to see if you qualify for any other surveys.  Other times, you will be directed to a link where you can enter an instant win game to win $50.

As you complete surveys, you get a certain amount of reward points.  These points correlate to dollar amounts.  For example, 10 points is equal to one dollar.

To ensure that you qualify for more surveys, I recommend filling out all of the information in the “Member Profiles” section.  There are seven different areas – general, health, household technology, leisure & activities, personal finance, personal vehicles, professional, shopping, and travel.

Cashing Out

To “cash out” click on the “Rewards” link on the left of the page.  This will show you what your current accumulated award balance is.  Once you accumulate $5, you are eligible to cash out.  This is a much lower threshold than other companies require for cashing out.  You can cash out for a check, and code (sent instantly to your e-mail address), or a Citi gift card (virtual or physical).  The and Citi card options were new for me!!

If you haven’t checked out Opinion Outpost yet, you really should!
