Valued Opinion Earn extra bit of Money

Valued opinions is a survey site that rewards you with vouchers for giving your valued opinion. I first heard of valued opinions through the moneysavingexpert website when I was looking for ways of earning a bit of extra money. I decided to sign up which was quick and easy and found that valued opinions is one of the best survey sites you can join.

When I was signing up through there website I had to give them my personal information like name, address, telephone number and email. Next they sent me an email to open my valued opinions account. After I opened my account I had to answer a few questions about my household and then I was up and ready to receive survey invitations. There is also 8 to 9 other categories you can chose to fill in. You don't have to fill these in but if you do it can lead to more survey invitations.

Once you've signed up valued opinions will start sending you survey invitations to your email account. They can range form 5 to 30 minutes and you can be rewarded from 25p to £2. I usually get 3 to 5 surveys a week and they usually last between 10 to 20mins. When you complete a survey the amount rewarded will be in the pending credits section in your reward statement on your account. It takes no longer than 28 days for your pending credits to be put into your account. Every now and again if your lucky you might get invited to a two hour online discussion. If you complete these you can get rewarded around £25 but I have only ever received one invitation and I didn't qualify for it.

Duration of survey = reward for completing survey
5 to 10mins = 25p to 75p, 10 to 15mins = 75p to £1 and 20 to 30mins = £1 to £2

Once you have reached £10 in your valued opinions account you can exchange them for high street vouchers or donate it to a charity. The stores you can get vouchers for are Amazon, Argos, Tesco and 10 other stores. They can take up to 28 days to deliver. My first voucher took 4 weeks to deliver and my second only took 2 weeks.

Overall valued opinions is one of the best survey sites you can join as its easy to sign up, you get regular surveys and there are hardly any problems with there website. Its a great way of earning a bit of extra money if you've got a spare 20 minutes in your day. I usually get a £10 voucher once a month and they don't usually expire until 2017. The only thing I find annoying with valued opinions is around half of the surveys im invited to I get kicked out of. This is usually because the survey is only for a certain person like someone who drives or someone who has recently been to the cinema. Apart from that valued opinions is one of the best survey sites you can join and I would highly recommend this site to anyone who wants to earn a bit of extra money.

We have all heard the term Make Money Online By Completing Surveys Come to find out, the majority of them are scams, and just end up wasting your time. Doing online surveys with any of the sites is never a goldmine and should never be thought of to take the place of your day-job. There are a few diamonds in the rough however, and one of them is IPSOS. Signing up with IPSOS is very simple, and they lay out all of the details for you when you sign up. They do not make a bunch of promises and then come back to you month's later telling you that you had the wrong idea of the site. The one thing that sets them apart from most of the other survey sites is that as soon as you log on to take a survey, it gives you an estimated amount of time that the survey will take to complete. If you think it is too much time, or you don't feel like doing that survey at that moment, you can come back to it later. The times that the surveys are available is limited, so keep that in mind. It is a survey panel that pays in vouchers and the surveys are worth anything from 50 to 250 points. In the time that I have been a member I have received four £10 Amazon vouchers and two £10 Boots vouchers . I get survey invitations emailed to me a couple of times a week, and very often qualify for them. One of the best features of this panel is that if you don't qualify, you usually receive few points for your trouble as well as prize draw entries, so it is always best to try to respond to all of them. You can also give details of other household members if you wish, and you will occasionally get invitations for them to complete surveys, which means you are getting additional surveys. I have only recently added a household member and have already received a few surveys for them to complete. Above and
beyond the potential of making a little sum of cash, IPSOS also allows you to participate in what they call IPSOS I-Say which allows you to earn points that you can enter into drawings for monthly prizes.Keep a close eye on the survey sites that you participate in and make sure that IPSOS is at the top of your list. They are reliable, trustworthy, and legitimate.Usually your points show up immediately or within a couple of days of finishing a survey. The customer support is also very helpful to deal with.You can then choose vouchers from Boots,Amazon and Argos. If you like
joining survey panels, I would definitely recommend this to join.
Definitely worth joining this site!

YouGov is a website that allows anyone to become a panel member for free, in order to collect real peoples’ opinions from across the nation. They conduct polls and surveys about politics, public affairs, brands, and other topics of general interest. Once you become a member, you will begin receiving invitations for surveys. For every survey you complete, you will earn points.

The points you earn can eventually be exchanged for a variety of different rewards, including T-shirts, tote bags, gift cards, movie tickets, and sometimes even cash. Not all surveys award points upon completion, however. Some surveys simply enter you into a monthly drawing for cash prizes.

Its a Different Kind of Market Research, Most market research companies are contracted by major corporations in order to discover what their target market is looking for in product development, advertising, or just general wants or needs. YouGov, on the other hand, has a decidedly political aspect to their market research. They claim to be a non-partisan organization, whose surveys do not represent either a Republican or Democratic view.

However, YouGov does partner with outside organizations to gather opinions from their members. These surveys are completely confidential, and though your responses will be provided to an outside organization, none of your contact information will be.

When you sign up with YouGov, though, you must provide your accurate home address for two reasons. First, they need to know where to send your prizes once they’ve been redeemed. Second, some of their political surveys are specific to a region or voting population.

The average survey at YouGov will only take about 5-7 minutes to complete, though surveys can vary in length. They say their longest survey will not run longer than 20 minutes to complete.

As for their rewards and prizes, you must become a member of YouGov before you can see how many points you must accumulate in exchange for a prize. Currently, though, they are giving new members a welcome bonus of 1000 points, so hopefully it won’t be too time consuming to earn a prize.
