    I signed up with these over a month ago and they seem quite alright. The surveys are sprodic, 2 in a week and then nothing for 2 weeks, but every little helps. All the surveys I've done have been quick and all points have been awarded.

    I checked them out online and couldn't find any problems/scams connected to them, only good stuff. I checked the site for T&C's, privacy policy and FAQ's etc and everything was there and made sense.

    I personally don't like Opinion Outpost. I've been a member for a few months now and I've yet to earn anythin. When I get surveys, I find that I can't answer the questions - for example, it'll ask what part of the UK I live in, but it doesn't give Northern Ireland as an option - nor does it give "other" as an option. So, I haven't been able to finish a single survey. If they didn't take Northern Irish folks then why did they let me sign up? It's a shame, since they pay out once you hit £2.50. Others want you to have £10 or even £25+.

    I don't think the surveys on Opinion Outpost are well paying at all.

    They typically give 10 points for a 15 min survey, which is only 50p. So the rate is £2 per hour. If you get screened out then it's even less.

    Not only that, but you have to answer some long winded questions even before you start a survey.

    I would disagree on a good week i can make 10 quid from the site not loads i know but in the grand scheme of things every little helps. I think this week i am five points away from 7.50.

    My advice with opinion outpost ensure every 2weeks you update your profile and log onto the site too check my surveys do not just depend on the emails they send.

    I have once won the prize draw they do too and had 20 quid i think it was.

    I agree you can make a good amount of money with opinion Outpost and with the low threshold of 50points/£2.50 cash out to PayPal it's a useful site. However it is very low paying for the length of its surveys and often loads of questions are asked before they screen you out and if something goes wrong they are woefull at putting it right. This weekend I completed a long survey for 25 points which at the final page failed to redirect back to the site so didn't credit the points. Contacting them just resulted in the standard email I've had a number of times before that it could take 4 to 6 weeks to credit the points. I've had to chase them for credit for completing online diarys that again take 6 weeks before they will sort it.

    Overall I stick with it as it's a useful way to quickly get hold of some cash but have to accept that it can be frustrating at times if it doesn't work as it should.

    Its ok for number of surveys unfortuntly they lie a lot about lenght of time it takes to complete a survey and a lot of times screen you out when your 50/75% way through. So not really worth it unless you have 10 mins to kill.

    Seems quite good, I signed up yesterday and have had 2 surveys today for £3 each.
    They pay £1 for 5 minutes ... They pay out by cheque at the end of every month, but the minimum payout is £50 ... so you need to earn 50 points before the end of the month to get a payout (1 point = £1), it rolls over thought so if you're at £44 at the end of the month you'll get a cheque sent out at the end of the next month (assuming you earn the further 6 points in that month).

    I have being on populuslive 3 months and i am yet to hit the 50 points mark

    re opinion outpost yes some surveys can take a bit longer than advertised

    positives you can on a good week build up too 50 points in 2-3 days. Plus you dont have too wait weeks for the money, i think at most i have had too wait 48hours for a paypal drop.

    I dropped money from uktoluna 2 weeks back and i am still waiting for it

    I quite like Opinion outpost, I get plenty of survey offers by email every day and although I don't earn much from it at all, the few pounds extra to top up my Paypal account is always welcome. (I really like that Paypal payments are instant aswell).

    The only thing I find annoying is when the email says for example it is a 7 minute survey and you have 10 mins to spare so think you'll do it, but you click on it and it says "this survey should take around 25 minutes to complete". That annoys me! I'm not sure if it just auto links you to a different one if the one in the email is full, but I'd rather just go to a page that says "sorry this survey is now full, would you like to try another" if that was the case.

    In the last two weeks I have tried very hard to get my 500+ points paid in M&S vouchers. I hasten to add I would not normally let my points get to that amount in case of problems but I wanted M&S Vouchers and they were out of stock for sometime so as soon as they were available I decided to redeem them. The first time I was at the point of submitting the points when a message flashed up on the screen :
    ' Your membership has been terminated as a result of the violation of the Opinion Outpost Terms & Conditions. For questions, please, contact helpdesk@opinionoutpost.co.uk
    I contacted the helpdesk and they confirmed that this why my membership had been terminated. They would not tell me why . I knew I hadn't done anything other than to redeem what was mine for all the time and effort I had put in. I decided to delve a little further and it seems that this has happened to a lot of other members of Opinion Outpost. I see that on MSE they are ranked 23 of 25 in the Moneysaving expert surveys list. Hardly a recommendation to give them a try. I am really cross that they can do this and seemingly are getting away with it. All I keep getting from the Helpdesk is my account is terminated and I will not be able to retrieve the points and will not be able to login to my account or re-join them either.
    I have put messages on their Facebook page and commented on other members who have had their Memberships terminated and every one has been taken down by them.

    Beware scam opinion website
    I joined Opinion outpost in June & must have done over 100 surveys, i let my points build up to about £85 in rewards.
    When i tried to redeem my points for Amazon vouchers, they said my mobile & home phone numbers were wrong so i tried to get the money paid into Paypal, as soon as i requested the money be paid into my Paypal account i got a message saying that i had violated their terms & conditions & that my account had been closed.
    I then researched this on the internet & found out through various sites including Trust pilot that this is a common thing to happen when people try to redeem their rewards.
    I have emailed Opinion Outpost lots of times about this & got very vague answers usually up to a week later saying that my account would be reopened within 3 working days, guess what it is still closed.
    I have requested that MSE take Opinion Outpost off their website because they are con artists & had no reply from MSE about this either.

    I have never had any issues redeeming from Opinion Outpost over the last 18 months.

    Why anyone would stock £85 in a survey site (cash out and at worst put it in an account with interest) is bizarre.
