Default Valued Opinion Users - No Amazon Vouchers

I logged into Valued Opinions today to claim my voucher, but the Amazon Option wasn't available, and it's no longer listed on the website - should I wait to claim, or has it been removed?

Please feel free to delete this thread if there is already information elsewhere, but my google-fu has failed me...

If you go to your Personal Profile and look at "How can we reward you?:", amazon is still listed under there.

I'm going to ask and check though cos the Tesco logo is removed as well

from their facebook page:-

unfortunately the Amazon vouchers are unavailable to claim until further notice. This is because the associated costs in buying these codes have increased. As such we’re tweaking the rewards we can offer so that we can continue providing you with vouchers/codes without passing on additional costs incurred when buying these rewards. We appreciate that Amazon may be your primary choice of reward, and as an alternative, we’ve partnered with WOW HD, who are able to offer a similar selection of products as well as free delivery. We’d like to reassure you we are acting in the best interests of our members on this matter and would like to thank you for your understanding.

They better not get rid of the topman/itune vouchers!!

Quite gutted! Postal vouchers take an age to arrive - 6 weeks last time! Not to worry - will just save up & hopefully they'll be offered again at some stage Thanks for the update!

And no Tesco vouchers either ...

Valued Opinions We’re currently re-evaluating our UK rewards portfolio due to changes in its cost structure. As such Tesco and Amazon vouchers won’t be available until further notice. However, we have added Sainsbury’s and WOW HD vouchers where you’ll likely find similar products. Another new exciting option is Eventim which offers tickets to music, sports and other great events. Take a look at all vouchers available for Valued Opinions UK http://www.valuedopinions.co.uk/rewards/. And we’re exploring more

Have just made the same discovery, when I was about to place an order with Amazon And no Tesco vouchers either! Which just leaves me with M&S as the only place where I'm ever likely to use vouchers. I think my days of doing Valued Opinions polls will soon be coming to an end!

Not good news. I loved the instant Amazon E-vouchers.
(soon changed as I had an Amazon E-voucher a fortnight ago!)

Never heard of Eventim or WOW HD. (E-vouchers)


Didn't they say they were doing an Itunes E-voucher soon?

I've got around 10 in current/pending.

I recently ordered a 10 Tesco gift voucher, just wondering whether it will be sent.

Haven't heard anything.

You should be OK. I redeemed an Amazon voucher and it hadn't arrived when I heard about these changes. Valued Opinions replied to my email stating all such orders would be fulfilled.

I can only agree with the poster above; I think I'll stop using Valued Opinions, the "CD Wow" website does not inspire confidence- slow and frequent server error messages. It's all a bit of a shame as Valued Opinions were one of the better survey sites but this is a retrograde step

Oh no. And I'm at 10 once they get around to adding my pending points...

I imagine I'll be leaving them.

Bit frustrating as was just about to place an order from amazon.co.uk with the 20 pending vouchers I had from valued opinions.

Had a very quick look at the HD Wow shop, to compare prices of some of the things I was looking at at amazon:
CD 5 amazon 8.99 HD Wow
digipak CD 12.99 amazon, 22.49 HD Wow,
DVD Boxset 24 amazon, 38 HD Wow,

Needless to say I shall cash out of valued opinions with something else!

I get Arcadia vouchers and save them to give as gifts at Christmas. They take about 10 days in the post, which I'm really happy with.

Hmm, not impressed as I always got amazon vouchers to pay for Kindle books, plus no waiting time so you don't have to remember to chase them if it doesn't arrive. Anyone know how long they take to send Sainsburys vouchers?

I've just noticed that amazon vouchers are "temporarily unavailable" on ipsos as well...
Maybe the two are for the same reasons?

Well out of stock. I really shouldn't use quotations when recalling from memory.

Check it out and see if it's just me.

Good RESULT

Valued Opinions UK - Hi Trisha, due to popular demand the Amazon Vouchers will be available again from next week.


BAD result

Valued Opinions UK - Unfortunately the Tesco vouchers have been discontinued and we won't offer them in the future. Thanks
