I know that a lot of people who are looking for ways to make money online think, that taking surveys would be the easiest way to earn money from home. I mean sure, taking surveys is very easy and getting paid for your own opinion sounds quite good, right? The problem with those survey sites is that they do not pay very well and most of the time you do not get money for taking those surveys. You earn credits for taking surveys and you can cash out your points for coupons or something like that. I reviewed many, many survey sites and I could not find one that was worth the time. I even found a few scams. What about Opinion Outpost? Does Opinion Outpost work?
If you landed on this article you are probably thinking about joining Opinion Outpost and now you are doing your research to see, if it is worth your time. First of all: Great that you are doing your research before joining such a site. Doing your research can save you from being scammed. I tested this survey site for you. Here is my Opinion Outpost review.
The first problems with Opinion Outpost
The first problem I had with Opinion Outpost occured when I joined it. I filled in all the details to create an account and after that I should have gotten an activation email. Unfortunately this email never arrived in my inbox and yes, I checked my spam folder. So I had to sacrifice another email address.
So after I did that it worked (I do not know why it did not work at the first time) and I had to fill out my profile and they asked me tons of questions. This is normal, so they can see for what kind of surveys you are qualified. Unfortunately some scam survey sites use your personal details to bombard your email with sales offers afterwards.
Till now that did not happen with Opinion Outpost, but what I can say is, that they really need a lot of information from you and I have never seen that on any of the other survey sites before. They even want your phone number and they want to know where you work.
After I gave them my real personal details (yeah right) I was …. NOT accepted. Lol!
So I spent so much time filling out their pre-survey and they did not accept me? Wow, absolutely great.
I did this whole shi… this stuff again and they accepted me … and again, I do not know why it did not work at the first time! Further I really have the feeling that it is not a good idea to give Opinion Outpost your personal details.
What you will earn at Opinion Outpost
Soooo I am inside Opinion Outpost and here comes the funny part. Most of those survey sites want to lure you into their membership quickly, so they tell you that you will get tons of surveys every day and OF COURSE you can earn tons of money by taking those surveys. Here you can see the explanation video of Opinion Outpost:
First of all, you won´t get any money here, you get points for taking surveys. After that you can cash out those points for $10 amazon giftcards, paypal cards. It takes extremely long to get one of those, because you do not get a lot of points for taking the surveys. For Paypal you have to have 100 points minimum to cash out and you are lucky if you can earn 10 points per hour. So that means that you are working for $1 per hour. I mean come on, do you really think that is worth it? There are definitely better ways to make money online!
And remember, I said ” you are lucky” if you make 10 points per hour. Here is why:
The survey before the survey
Inside Opinion Outpost I saw that I am not qualified for most of the survey for whatever reasons. I am pretty sure that there is no one who is qualified for a lot of surveys, that is just the way it is with those survey sites, they promise you tons of surveys, you get 1 – 2 per week … if you are lucky.
However there were a few surveys I was qualified for… at least I thought so. The survey I took seemed to be only the survey before the survey, because after I completed, let´s say, 70% of the survey, they told me that I am not qualified for this survey. What?? So I wasted my time for this only to be told that I am not qualified? They must be kidding!
I found out that I am not the only one who experienced this. Have a look at this review on a site called survey police. This user describes his experience with Opinion Outpost very well.
Or this one here.
Does Opinion Outpost work, or is it a scam?
I think my article here makes it clear that Opinion Outpost definitely is a total waste of time. I reviewed many survey sites like Survey Junkie or Click 4 Surveys and till now I think that Opinion Outpost was one of the worst. I really think that Opinion Outpost is a rip off. I mean you take surveys and after 70% they tell you that you are not qualified… seems to be a method to get your filled out survey for free.
Stay away from Opinion Outpost! It is a waste of your time!
How you can make money online
I know that taking surveys is very appealing, because you do not need to have any experience at all to make money online. However as you can see, you do not really make money by taking surveys, it is just a waste of time.
How about creating your own online business? It is a legit method to make money online and a lot of people do that. In fact I make money with my own website and when I started I had no experience at all. This training platform here provides great information on how to do that and you even can join it for free.
It is the platform that got me started and today I make a consistent income online.
