Opinionsite, found online at Opinionsite.com, is a market research site which describes themselves as “worldwide communities of people sharing their opinions” in exchange for rewards.
This website says that they allow their members to share their opinion in exchange for “cash and rewards.” Whenever you complete a survey with their website, you will be awarded points which you eventually will be able to exchange for cash.
You can sign up to participate in this service for free, and once you complete your registration forms, and confirm your membership by email, you will receive 1,400 points – the equivalent of $1.00 – added to your account.
How It Works
After becoming a member, you will then be asked to complete a short profiling survey in exchange for another 2,800 points, or $2, added to your account. Before you begin taking member surveys, you will have $3 in your account, and you only need to accumulate the equivalent of $10 before you can cash out and request a check.
When working with a market research or survey site, one of the things you should always look at is the level you need to reach before you can receive compensation. A $10 minimum is a reasonable level, although they are not clear on how many points you will receive per survey after you have completed the membership process.
Opinionsite also has a version of their website created especially for healthcare professionals, Opinionsite health, including doctors, nurses, veterinarians, managed care professionals, and more. These surveys will deal specifically with needs related to healthcare careers.
What Else You Should Know
When you become a member of Opinionsite, you also agree to receive email newsletters, account updates, and special offers which are targeted to your interests based on the information you provide to them.
This is not uncommon to some market research websites. The question of whether the website is legit must be dealt with on an individual basis, between whether you can reach the described payment amount and receive reliable payments and the volume of marketing contacts you receive.
If you are receiving unlimited amounts of contact from advertisers but can hardly complete enough surveys to reach your payout, the website is not considered a legitimate form of market research.
If you tire of the surveys or of the various marketing communications you will receive after becoming a member, you can Unsubscribe from their services at any time, however your information will still be maintained in their database unless you contact them directly and ask that they remove all your personal information from their system.
