Income Proof – My Opinion Outpost Earnings
I only write reviews for companies once I've actually tried them out and been paid. That way you know that the review is based on my actual experience.

How To Make The Most Money From Opinion Outpost – In Depth Review
I'll start off this review with covering the basics, such as the sign up process, the payout minimum and more. After that I'll get into how to best use Opinion Outpost to make the most money in the least amount of time.
- Location: Opinion Outpost only works in the United States, Canada and the UK. Unfortunately, they are not a completely global company. Each country has it's own website to work with.:
- Age: You can sign up for Opinion Outpost as long as you are 13 years or older.
Sign Up Process: To join Opinion Outpost, click this link and then enter your personal information, such as your name, sex and your special survey taking email address (which I talk more about in my free survey taking tips).
After confirming your email address, you'll be directed back to the site to fill out some member profile surveys. Make sure to be honest with these, as they will help you be directed towards surveys you are more likely to qualify for.
Payout Minimum: Opinion Outpost is one of the best companies when it comes to payouts. There is a 10o point minimum to cash out for $10 via Paypal and they instantly give it to you. This is awesome considering some companies take several weeks to payout, and some still pay with checks. As you can tell from the pictures, I cashed out the 332 points for an instant $30 into my Paypal account.
Other notable minimum payouts that are available are MileagePlus Award miles, which you can get 300 miles for 105 points, along with a $5 Amazon gift card for 50 points. I prefer to get the cash, but if you wanted to get rewarded as soon as possible or needed some extra airline miles, these are good options.
My Personal Survey Qualification Percentage: I qualified for roughly 80% of the surveys I tried to take. This is a pretty high rate compared to some of the companies I have tried out. Also, it never took me more than 90 seconds to get screened out of a survey, which is a huge plus. Some companies, which I will have reviews coming out for, take a lot longer than that to screen you out. If you end up not qualifying for a survey with Opinion Outpost, then they enter you into a quarterly drawing for $10,000.
Survey Invite Rate: Opinion Outpost emails me about 2 surveys a day, but have around half a dozen surveys available for you through the member's homepage. I explain below why you should only focus on the surveys that get emailed to you.
Is there a mobile app?: No. However, their website is designed to fit well onto any size screen (Iphone, Ipad, Android, etc). So while they don't give the convenience of a dedicated mobile app, their website and surveys are very functional when viewed on your phone or tablet. This will you can fill your spare minutes with taking surveys.
The Best Way to Make Money with Opinion Outpost
When it comes to taking surveys with Opinion Outpost, you can access them through the membership area on their website along with getting emailed about 2 surveys a day. Only take the surveys that are emailed to you. The surveys accessed on their website dashboard are not labeled with point values and the time required to take them. This means you could take a long time to take a survey and only get a small amount of points, which you wouldn't know until the end.
You will also be offered surveys that get you 1 entry into their $10,000 cash giveaway. I personally would not spend time on this. The sweepstake chances are extremely slim. You'd be better off working towards the $10 payout.
Since Opinion Outpost only emails you 2 surveys a day, I recommend signing up for multiple survey companies so you never run out of surveys to take.
The surveys that get emailed to you show the points and the estimated time they will take. They typically range from 5 to 30 points.
And as you can see from my notes below, I usually finished the surveys well below the estimated time for the surveys. While reviewing this site, I took a bunch of short 5 point surveys, but I found that the 15 point and higher surveys offered the most value for my time, and often times were the ones that I finished quickest compared to their estimated times.
5 points for 7 minutes (only took 4)
5 points for 12 minutes (took 16!)
15 points for 20 minutes (took 11 minutes)
5 points for 12 minutes (took 7)
25 points for 30 minutes (took 20 mins)
15 points for 20 minutes (took 16 minutes)
5 points for 10 minutes (took 5 minutes)
10 points for 15 minutes (took 6 minutes)
65 points for 35 minutes (took 26 minutes)
15 points for 20 minutes (took 20 minutes)
5 points for 10 minutes (took 13 minutes)
10 points for 15 minutes (took 13 minutes)
15 points for 25 minutes (took 13 minutes)

Since doing the surveys emailed to me turned out to be the most valuable use of my time, I recommend signing up for other survey companies so once you finished those surveys, you can jump to another website and keep on working towards payouts. Check out the other companies I use, and which ones I like best here.

I’m 15 and I want to sign up, I noticed that you said 13 is minimum age but most other places I’ve seen 18… I can’t seem to find an official statement from Opinion Outpost so do you know the actual answer?
I believe you can sign up with parent approval. I’m not sure how they ask for your parent’s approval, but if you attempt to sign up they should let you know.
Hi , I’m 16 & I don’t have a credit card & neither does my parents , so how can I get paid ? Will they send me checks in the mail or send me gift cards ?
You can get a PayPal debit cats without a bank account and then just tamer your payments to it.
If I don’t have a PayPal or bank account set up, will they Mail me checks and or gift cards ? I don’t have a credit card ..
Unfortunately you need a PayPal account to receive cash from them. If you want, you could still use them and get Amazon gift cards, which you don’t need a credit card, bank account, or PayPal account to get and use.
And since Amazon carries so much stuff, it’s almost as good as cash when it comes to purchasing things.
do you get the gift cards in the mail?
I have only cashed out with PayPal from Opinion Outpost, but I imagine they work similarly to other companies in that they give you a digital gift card. Makes it easier on each party.
Hi Chris,I recently signed up to opinion outpost after seeing such positive reviews. I have done around 4 surveys now and each time i am redirected to a page saying “unable to record participation”. For about two of them,i was instantly redirected to this page,and the other two I completed them and were not given my points. Is this a large issue and frequent?
I haven’t heard of that before, so I would contact their customer service.
Hey Chris i was wondering so i am 13 an want to make some money fast. How fast do you normaly get to 100 points or $10?
Depends on the time you spend on the website, and how many surveys they send you. Since they are based on demographic information (how old you are, where you live, your race, your gender, etc.) It could differ from person to person. But for Opinion Outpost it went pretty quickly for me.
If you are looking to make more money, the more websites you sign up for, the better because you’ll have access to more surveys.
I am 13 can I still do opinion outpost ?
I believe with parent approval, 13 year olds can do opinion outpost.
Hi Chris, I don’t have PayPal account. But I have other bank account. Am I able to get paid using other bank accounts?
If you want cash, you’ll need a PayPal account. They are actually really easy to set up, free, and can be linked to your bank account.
You can get Amazon or iTunes gift cards though.
hi i’m 13 and i was wondering how to get a paypal if you are not 18.
You could do it with a parent or guardian over the age of 18.
Hi im in the middle of signing up but its asking for my address are they going to mail annoying ads to my house or anytime of mail?
It’s possible you may get put on some list. I use a PO box for signing up for mine.
It depends on the survey companies, but some are better than others. I don’t think Opinion Outpost is bad about it.
Can u cancel the account?
You can cancel the account.
Hi I’m 14 and I’ve got opinion outpost but I’ve triad getting an PayPal account but I only lets me do it when I’m 18 years old
I think you can get a PayPal account if you are over 13 with parents approval. If not, you could use your parent’s PayPal account.
Hi Chris, I’ll have to debate on your recommendation of Opinion Outpost. I joined and saw that the pay is very cheap for the time they ask. twenty minutes is pretty poor for $1.60. That comes to $4.80 an hour.
I actually recorded how much time it took me to do each survey. Most of the time, I finished well below the estimated time, which means a higher pay per hour.
How do you receive the money by mail box or card ?
I received it by PayPal
I would like to say that i made some surveys and have not gotten payed and i dont know if im getting payed ,so what do i do
You can contact their customer support team to see if they are paying you out.
Amazon gift cards are nice but cash is better. Which survey sites give you that
Opinion Outpost does, but I have sites listed on this website that pay out in cash / Paypal.
If you use the search navigation for which one you’d like, you can find a list there.
I’m 13 and without a bank account, paypal, and anything like that. If I sign up, will I just get gift cards and is it safe to disclose my adress?
I believe you can get gift cards. You need your parent approval for this stuff though.
Hello there, i am 18 years old. I signed up for Opinion Outpost today. I was wondering, will they send money directly to my debit card? It is a rapid debit card i got last year. I’m still a little hazy when it comes to how the money is sent. Please help. Thank You.
Hello there! So, this was a very helpful review, so I thank you for taking the time to do so. Now, what I’m wondering is ( and if you mentioned it in this post, I might’ve missed it.) can one simply let the points build up? Because, I have no PayPal yet, nor a credit/debit card, so I would have to work with gift cards. But! Can I let the value build up for cards?
Like say, if I take a Survey and it gets me $5 in a Amazon gift card, would that be it? Or do I have the option to build up my points for a $50+ gift card for Amazon etc.?
I was wondering if it works in India as well. I recently moved here and tried this out and it does offer India as one of its options but You said that its only available in uk usa and canada. so does that mean that it doesn’t work here?
I just made an account and am trying to take a servey but it keeps telling me to come back later, what do i do?
i dont understand, im getting no points for any surveys, and sometimes it wont let me even start the survey? i dont know
So if my country is not on the list, I cannot participate?
I’m from Slovenia.
I’ve been a member of opinionoutpost for a few years, done hundreds of surveys, and to this day have accumulated a whopping 10 points. Every single survey they send you first says, you are qualified, then you do the survey for 10 or 15 minutes, then they say..oops sorry you don’t qualify. Or quota is full. Or in the middle of a survey there is an “error” and you lose what you have done. Or my personal fave, you do a horribly tedious long survey that says it’s for 90 points, you finish, then you don’t get the points. It seems to be a theme with all of the survey sites. Have been a member to a lot of them, including the ones mentioned here, and have never seen a penny from any of them. Once you sign up you get a bunch of surveys that you are not qualified for, then nothing. One here, one there. Big fat waste of time. The only way, I think, that you get any surveys is if you lie your butt off on the initial forms and in the questions they ask you later. You have to be an alcoholic, a chain smoker, a certain age, suffer from countless ailments, eat out on a daily basis, be a junk food junkie, be addicted to otc products….and you will get those sought after paying surveys.
This is completely untrue. Ive been a member for 3 days and I qualify for 80-90% of the surveys. I have a college degree, do not smoke and drink spirits on rare occasion. I always answer honestly.
how do you get and earn that much points I mean I tried taking surveys but it doesn’t let me I could only take one. Do you have any tips or suggestions,?
Hi Chris is there anyway to get more than 2 surveys a day
Can I join from south africa?
I was wondering, is it ok to put my address in? Is it safe? Can anyone else accsess my info??
How long will it take for the money to transfer into your paypal account and then transfer it to your bank account?

How do I get paid from doing surveys from this site
I’m looking for money but can’t work do to my studies. I want to try opinion outpost but my country isn’t in the list. How bad would it be if I placed another country instead of mine?
i have made over £200 in the past 12 months with opinion outpost UK so i recommend you all to join.
Hi my name is kileyah
And I am trying to sign up for opinion outpost. But I can’t get it to send to my gmail so I can go to the next step. How do I make it work because it will not send me the inbox so I can go onto the next step and start doing the surveys.

I was wondering on opinion outpost if u only get points for the surveys that your qualified for?
can you get a check in the mail from opinion outpost if you ise the paypal method or do you have to use the money online like the amazon gift card
When sending money via amazon gift cards, are they just codes to cash in, or is there an “amazon wallet” sorta thing?
P.s. aside from getting more accounts on paid survey websites, how can i increase my $-per hour output?
Is it true that you can only take 5 surveys a month?
Way too many times you “fail to qualify” but youve still given answers to questions but of course you wont earn anything despite them gaining valuable data from your answers. Very disappointing though cant say im surprised at all.
hey i live in hong kong and i wanted to know if is it possible with opinion outpost for me to make money or if not if you know an other online surveys where i can make money
I’m not American and don’t live there. I don’t understand what’s the probblem for foreigners to take part in such survays. I mean what if I sign up for it and take the survays?
When I sigh in on the page, on the second step, when i do everything on there, there´s become a message that says Time Out.. Can someone tell me why and what I should do??!!! please!!
YES. I’ve made over $300 since April.. about $100 a month or so. You just gotta know the tricks/ how to answer the pre-questions.
amigo tengo una cuenta paypal pero no esta verificada. mi pregunta es si asi aun es posible cajear mis puntos sin ningun problema?. o es obligatoria verificar el paypal con un tdc?
hi, i am 13 I dont have PayPal or debit card and i live in Serbia. Do they bring me money on home address and how should I be sure that tey will bring me money? Pleas answer me. Thanks.
If i dont add a bank account do i still have to pay the fines n fees jst like a bank account would or does my balance stay the same if i dont use the money right away
So I was just wandering on how to get money on the internet and I always come across these type of survey websites. I’ve always been told to stay away from them mostly because of potential scams, viruses or worst case scenario, ID theft. I am 15 years old and I would like to just have another way to earn money that isn’t asking my parents because it does get irritating. My main concern is trust: how can I trust your reviews and all? I am not saying you are a scammer or anything, I would just like to know if Opinion Outpost (and other survey websites) can be trusted with. A reply would be much appreciated. Thank you.
my brother has an account, and i would like to join to this panel but i don’t have a Paypal account so can i redeem using my brother account by adding my email to his account?
Great Review. Although Opinion Outpost might be the best survey website, online surveys are definitely one of the most inefficient ways to make money online. It can help desperate people, but in the long term, they are not worth it.
Hi so I know this a sort of old review but I was wondering if you could still help? So I’m thinking of joining opinion outpost but I’m scared that if they have access to my paypal or debit card that they’ll steal my money and the second question is will it give me a virus or mess up my computer?
You don’t need to use a debit card and when they pay you via PayPal it’s money going in not going out. Anytime you’d have money going out you’d be buying something or authorizing someone to remove – which isn’t what the survey companies are going to ask you to do.
I recently redeemed 450 points to a paypal account. However, my account on opinion outpost is now showing 0 points, but no money has been transferred into my paypal account. What do I do??
Contact their support team. For me the payment was pretty instantaneous though.
This just means you need to wait for the payment to be sent out.
hi chris, i’d like to ask what if i have signed up in opinion outpost but i dont live in uk, canada, or us. i keep on answering surveys but they dont give points for it. what should i do? i really need bucks right now.
Anytime you fill out and complete a survey and are not credited for it, then I’d recommend contacting the survey company to get an explanation.
