How to Get Started

To earn rewards through Opinion World a user must first subscribe to the website by providing details including:
  • First and last name
  • Valid email address
Following registration the applicant receives a confirmation email, featuring a link to activate the account. Users will be prompted to answer a number of short questions about themselves to help the site direct the most relevant surveys to appropriate participants. Users are then ready to be invited to participate in surveys and invitations will be sent via email.

Rewards

With each completed survey users will be rewarded a determined amount of points, that will be calculated on their account page. Following the accumulation of a minimum $10 worth of points a user can browse the ‘Rewards Page’ to exchange points for goods. Opinion World has two major Options for exchange of rewards points, including gift vouchers and Paypal deposits.

Gift Vouchers

Opinion World’s online shop offers the exchange of rewards points for both paper and virtual vouchers from retailers such as:
  • Bunnings Warehouse
  • Itunes
  • JB HiFi
  • Amazon
  • Myer

Charity Donations

The site also boasts the more unique option of donating a certain portion of your rewards points to charity. Opinion World has aligned with charity Can Too for this feature. Can Too is a cancer research charity that hosts fitness events such as marathons and training days, with proceeds contributed to the Cancer Council.

Benefits and Opportunities

Opinion World also offers a quarterly prize draw for contributors. Every quarter, survey participants are entered into a prize pool for a $5,000 cash giveaway. Alongside this, a ‘refer a friend’ program exists on Opinion World, whereby existing members can recommend friends to join and participate in surveys. A user is awarded 50 points for each friend they involve up to a maximum of 5 friends. Occasionally Opinion World also contacts participants to add extra information to their profile and fill out updates. These answers can also earn points and take very little time to keep up to date. There is also potential for kids to take surveys on Opinion World. If a child is under the age of 16 this must be done via an account held by a parent or guardian and surveys will be applicable to their knowledge and skill set.

Tips and Techniques

The online survey market appeals to people in many different ways, and working out the best individual strategy for you is a key step in maximising opportunity to earn. Some techniques recommended for Opinion World users are:
  • Complete user profiles and account information as comprehensively as possible
  • When completing surveys, be detailed and honest with answers, as you can be disqualified from a survey for unsubstantial information even if the survey was completed
  • Take advantage of extra opportunities such as competitions and giveaways
  • Reliable and efficient survey takers may be invited to participate in more frequent and higher paid surveys, increasing rewards. So stay active!
  • If problems arise with payment or completion of surveys, contact site administrators immediately to highlight and resolve any issues

Although there exist a number of negative public reviews to be found online, the general consensus on Opinion World is positive amongst user testimony. Being a subsidiary of Survey Sampling international, which has been operating as a legitimate data collection agency for 37 years, Opinion World is endorsed by the history of the site operators as a trustworthy and longstanding company. Opinion World promises to never share any user data without permission and does not send any emails non-related to the site.
