    Do people actually get paid surveys from Opinion World? I've only been doing it a week or two, but I have only been offered one paid survey, and I was screened out of that! I'm fed up with doing them for nothing already.

    I signed up with them about a month ago, and the only surveys they have sent me offer entry into a prize draw and donation to charity!! I've not bothered with the last few they sent.

    I have been with them for over a year and have received x2 £20 cheques from them so far ,and am showing £18.60 at the moment.Though you have to wait for £25 now to claim,so i do not find them to bad.Thats £58.60 I would not have had if I dropped them at an early stage.they normally only do one monthly prize draw questionairre and the others are all cash.

    Yes, that's all I've had. I think I will give them a little longer, and see what occurs.
    Thanks both.

    I joined yesterday, took the first survey offered from their site, spent over half an hour on it, completed the survey, just completed the profiling questions at the end and it said I was screened out!

    Not impressed. Shan't be continuing unless they tell me it was an error and credit me.

    I had a similar problem. I joined last week. I entered my details and was told there is a survey for me worth 150 points. It was long and boring, but at the end of it I was told that I will be entered in a prize draw!!!!!! so the 150 points were never added.

    I did send them and email for explanation but I don't expect a reply. I think they are just thieves.

    I've been with them for about a year now. I'm finding surveys are coming few and far between at the moment, but they do pay so I stick at it, even if it does take me longer to reach payout!

    I too recently joined to add to my list of surveys I do. The only points I have rec'd is the initial 150 points for my first survey, all the rest have been for prize draws with an option to donate to charity.

    To check your points you need to log on to their website and check your survey history, in mine I have 150 points for the first but a dash for all the rest. I have sent an email to ask why I only getting prize draw surveys

    Thanks both. I checked again after logging in and I have the 150 points now. The message about prize draw confused me.

    Anyway, I too have a had a few invites from them to do surveys for prize draw entry. I genuinely don't believe there is a proze draw or I will ever win one even if there is. So I only do surveys that give me credit.

    I must admit to having had a different experience with Opinion World. I registered on Tuesday and have today just withdrawn my first £10 to my Paypal account. I find that if I log in around 9 in the morning, there is normally at least one survey that will be brought up. I just potter through them whilst working (it helps to be quiet at the moment!). I would advise just logging in and persisting and they are the best one i've used so far.

    Well I've been with them about 6 weeks,started 50 surveys,completed 20 and been given points for...1!(The initial survey).Lots of entries for the mysterious "prize draws" though...

    I can't understand how some appear to be raking in the points/cash and others are getting zilch.No matter,I'm tired of being promised points only to be told at the end I've been entered in a "prize draw",I've just about had it with Opinion World.
  • clemmatis
    I've been a member of Opinion World for years -- literally years. When I joined they only had prize surveys, I suppose people just stopped doing them -- I did -- so they brought in points. But I've only ever had one payout, because I get screened out of most of the very few points ones they send me.

    I'm just not very interested in them now, they're possibly the worst site for me.
  • ashtonluke
    Further to my post above, since mid-May, I have had withdrawn £70 in cash through the surveys straight to my paypal account. I find that I have days when I am screened out of most surveys but on other days I can accumulate quite a lot of points in not much time at all.

    Worth the effort if you happen to win the £5,000 prize draw.

    I've given up with this one. For the time and effort you put in to the surveys just on the chance you'll win is not worth it for me. They used to pay something for some of the surveys but I only get the prize draw ones now, so don't bother.
