Is MyOpinions a legit survey site?
MyOpinions is legit. It is Australia’s no. 1 paid survey site that offers cash and rewards in exchange for sharing your opinions on various topics, services, and products. They need honest opinions to help improve their products and services. By sharing your views, you get a direct line on the brands you rely on and have a say on how you feel.
Data Privacy: Any reason for concern?
At MyOpinions, the latest digital security is used to safeguard your data. The members have complete control over what information they share and when. MyOpinions and its third-party partners will never use your data without your consent.
How to get started
Available on your desktop, mobile, or tablet. Registration is free and takes just a few minutes. Sign up for an account by filling out your name, gender, date of birth, email address, phone number, phone type, and zip code. Then, confirm your email address, and submit. You must be 18 years old and a resident of Australia. In cases where they sometimes survey minors, they may participate only with their parent’s consent.
What about the survey experience?
Surveys generally take 10 to 40 minutes to finish. The site will pay you in points for each survey you can complete. The longer the survey, the greater chance of earning more points. It is important that you complete your profile, as it is what the site will use when they send you survey invites. You will be sent survey invitations based on your profile. When you get an invite, you must pass a screening process first. The screening will determine whether you are qualified to participate or not.
How much can you make on MyOpinions?
One hundred points are equivalent to $1. You can earn 10 to 400 points for each survey completed. Two thousand points or $20 is the minimum account balance required to request a PayPal payment. One thousand points are equivalent to $10, the minimum account balance required to request a Flexi eGift card. These cards can be converted into other retailers’ gift cards, including Dominoes, Apple, Myer, Woolworth, and many more. The Flexi eGift card usually arrives at your email address within 2 working days of the request. The processing time can vary if you prefer to get paid through PayPal. For every successful survey completed, they will give you an entry into the quarterly $5,000 cash prize draw. You can also earn up to 500 points for referring a friend. Also, MyOpinions offers a loyalty status program; as you complete more surveys, you progress to a higher level, entitling you to more weekly bonuses on surveys you receive up to a maximum of 10%, but this is open to residents of Australia only.
What can prevent me from cashing out?
The most significant risk for you not being able to cash out is when you don’t accumulate enough credits. MyOpinions has checks in place to ensure you answer your surveys honestly. Avoid false or contradictory answers. Failure to do so will result in the rejection of your submissions. Do not create multiple accounts in the hope that you can earn more money. This can be considered fraud that will have you banned and lose all money accumulated in your account.
