MyOpinions Review

MyOpinions has been owned by Survey Sampling International sine June 2015.

I know i lot of people had problems with their accounts being closed for no reason when MyOpinions was taken over by Survey Sampling, but over the last few years things have certainly improved and i am getting at least $20 every month from MyOpinions as well as earning platinum plus status for the last few years. So if you have stopped doing surveys with MyOpinions its certainly worth reconsidering.

MyOpinions has a good bonus points system which works as follows: Once you have earned 500 points you will reach the bronze level, but their is no bonus points at that level. Once you have earned 2500 points you will be upgraded to silver and earn 2.5% points bonus. After silver the next level is gold, where you need to earn 5000 points to qualify for a 5% points bonus, then comes platinum, where you will receive 7.5% points bonus after you have earned 10000 points and finally their is platinum plus where you need to earn 8000 points each year to maintain an ongoing 10% points bonus. Bonus points are awarded once a week..

At MyOpinions you only need 1000 points for a $10 eGift Card or 2000 points for a $20 PayPal reward. Rewards are delivered instantly.

MyOpinions Fast Facts:

Open to residents of Australia 18 years and over

Refer a Friend: 100 Points for the first 5 friends

Non Qualify: 20 points

Payout: eGift Cards, PayPal

Minimum Payout $10

    I was in middle of completing survey up to health questions when the internet page went to ERROR so now i don’t know if I am registered or not, please advise.

    • Hi Kathleen, to check if you are registered try to sign in with the log on information you used when you signed up, if you are registered you should be able to go to the site and be able to see if your answers were recorded.

    MyOpinions is a really great survey site, one of the best I have tried. I have been a member since the start of october 2013 and I have cashed out once already. You get one or two surveys a week which works quite well for me.

    • Hi Iluka,
      I Agree MyOpinions is a great site, they also have a loyalty status program which gives you a weekly percentage bonus on the surveys you complete.

  3. Belinda permalink

    Have been a My Opinions Member for 7 years. Since it has been operated by Survey Sampling International it is no longer a fair and reasonable site. Generally, you receive emails stating you have a survey – then when you go to link and answer 3 or 4 questions it will mostly lock you out with no reward given. It has become now a waste of time and effort for those who are busy enough … not only due to this but you can no longer transfer points to Rewards Central (whose site is just as disappointing these days also) – most of the good features are gone now including the weekly lucky square. Also, if you are doing a survey and get bumped out for some reason, there is now no way to continue the survey as the available surveys (including status, survey ID etc.) are no longer listed on either the My Opinions or Rewards Central website. Not good enough !

  4. Jackson permalink

    Agree completely with Belinda, this site and Rewards Central are no longer worth the effort. They ask a long series of questions to determine if you are eligible for a survey, then after answering a few more questions they screen you out. I will be closing my account shortly.

    • Hi Jackson,
      Try to earn enough points for a reward before you close your account as once you close a account all points earned are lost.

  5. Fiona permalink

    I have been having huge issues getting my rewards. I can’t get my phone number verified as I don’t get the text message they send which means I cannot get my cash out rewards. So frustrating as they are not responding to any of the messages I have sent them.

    • Hi Fiona,
      The only thing I can suggest it to try a different mobile number and make sure you give them the number in local format for example: 04XXXXXXX rather than 61XXXXXXXX.

  6. Ian c permalink

    A couple of days ago I had over 8000 points. Now there’s a different log in system, new password required, my statement shows zero points. What’s going on? Plus – more and moe surveys are asking more and more questions (up to 30% of survey!) before screening out. Hardly worth the effort now.

    • Hi Ian,
      The log in system for MyOpinions has not changed, possibly you have signed up to MyOpinions again with a different email? It best to cash out your points as soon as you can on every survey site you have joined.

    • Steven permalink

      They are a corrupt site, cancelling accounts with no explanation and people’s accumulated balances wiped out…..They do not honour payments lately….My balance of almost 5000 was wiped out, thats hours of my time lost…….This a AVOID site…..you will be wasting your time, especially when their conduct is fraudalant…………

      • Maylyn permalink

        Yes your exactly right. They did same with me, i lost my points when i tried to sign in it’s already blocked. Without explanation why. Really disappointed

  7. thehouseoflotta permalink

    I was answering surveys yesturday and today i was removed from the site , i followed their site rules and what points i had left is no existant. I had been told three days ago that i have to sign in with a new password and no i didn’t join up with a different email . So i am giving up on that site, i had no problems til i used a voucher i earnt with my points on their site.

    • Hi thehouseoflotta,
      It seems strange that you were been told to sign into MyOpinions with a new password, if you received a email with a new password it is most likely fake, I hope you can get it all sorted out soon.

      • thehouseoflotta permalink

        it wasn’t in an email, it was on their offical website. it doesn’t matter i won’t be holding my breath regarding my membership with them anyways, they weren’t forth coming with points i hard earnt as it was.

  8. I don’t know why you would have been asked for a new password, I never had any problems with My Opinions.

  9. ParticipateAtYouOwnRisk permalink

    I have been a member for 7 years, maybe longer and used to love it. Today I am over it. I often participate in surveys, spending 10-20 minutes, sometimes 30 minutes at a time doing surveys and then on the last question or at 98%-99% they will screen me out and give me 20 points. The are actually deceiving me and wasting my time. Beware, they get you to complete the surveys and don’t reward you as agreed.

    • Hi ParticipateAtYouOwnRisk,
      I know its frustrating when you spend 30 minutes on a survey only to be told you don’t qualify. I am thinking about adding a list of surveys which are disqualifying people unfairly.

  10. Mary Alex permalink

    Generally like this company. However as I just experienced. I completed a survey for 20mins and then was screened out. I’m sorry but I could see I was at the end of the survey from the progress bar. It was very dodgy. Otherwise, I think some surveys have been quick, easy and worth my time. Other than this ‘university study’ on how you would behave if your pet was stuck in your house/property in an emergency..avoid doing.. waste of time.

  11. Token permalink

    It’s a waste of time. It used to be good when I could transfer points, but in the last 6-9 months, I haven’t received a single survey request and when I try to check if their are surveys matching my profile, there is never one available. For the last 6 months, I gave up and just wanted to get enough points to finally cash out then cancel my account, but can’t even do that! LAME!

  12. Blah permalink

    I don’t seem to be able to cash out anymore…It asks for my password due to the secure member’s area..I put my password in, click submit..and nothing at all happens.

    • Hi Blah,
      I checked my account and once i sign in i can access the rewards page. You can try logging out of My Opinions and closing your browser and then open the My Opinions again and log in, if that doesn’t work you can try using a different browser and/or device.

  13. Maylyn permalink

    I’ve been collecting points and trying my best to earn points. After all i can’t redeemed my points, because they terminated me that’s strange. I didn’t make any violation. I followed all the rules and regulations. Feeling frustrated… Please help me…

  14. John permalink

    Do not use My Opinions, they are dodgy. When you get to platinum plus they will close your account for breaching their terms and conditions but are unable to say how you breach them and will keep all your points. Complete waste of time as they will never let you redeem.

    • Hi John.
      You can try emailing them at: support@myopinions.com.au

    • CTM permalink

      Thanks for posting that – i was getting close to platinum and that is exactly what happened. I signed in after a couple of months absence (was actually in hospital for some time). Tried to do a survey on a new computer I had just bought and was suddenly not able to do any surveys. Got the rubbish response from their rubbish support about supposedly not doing surveys properly (ha, ha, ha). Never received a proper response from their support who simply lied over and over again about looking into the problem. Just tried to sign in and got the membership terminated message. This is fraud and they should be prosecuted.

    • Martin Kristy Visser permalink

      We seem to have the same issue. We have accumulated 10000 points and now we can’t access our account. The hours spent on it. Hoping they rectify the situation. NOT HAPPY JAN

  15. Mary permalink

    I was terminated by Myopinions because I breached terms and conditions. I attempted to redeem @20 via paypal and I believe I may have keyed a comma before the au on my email address. No response from my opinions from 5 emails to the help desk not even a computer generated one. I intend to telephone them today on 02 9409 8698 a tel number I found on an american site Police survey. I could not find a listing in the Tel .directory. What type of business is this no advertised number their business is to improve the running of their clients businesses, I think they should look at their own.

  16. Melissa permalink

    Just when I was ready to cash out on this site I received an error “we need a week to look into this” blah blah. I tried to login the next day and my account was terminated. I have always answered the surveys honestly so I believe this may be a scam they are using to avoid having to pay people. I seem not to be the only one this has happened to. They have another site they own also called opinionworld which the same thing happened on. Be VERY wary about wasting your time. I have had success with other sites that havent been scams

  17. Lyn permalink

    Yes you are right john. They did desame with me.. they terminated me without any reason. Even they didn’t even told me.. annoying. .

    • Hi Lyn,
      You can try emailing them at: support@myopinions.com.au

      • Lyn permalink

        Hi it’s useless to communicate with them because they don’t care. I send an email several times but even no reply. So as if im begging for something. That’s fine if they don’t to reply . My concern is im doing my effort but it’s worthless..

        Thank you

  18. Hi Lyn.
    They have admitted on Facebook, that their has been issues with some accounts, you can try contacting them on Facebook if you have account, i have left a comment on their Facebook, telling them that i have had quiet a few people at my website telling me they have been unfairly terminated, hopefully they can re-instate terminated accounts and learn from this.

    • Lyn permalink

      Yes you are right…That’s great.. if i can leave a comment on facebook it reallyhelpful. .

      Thank you

    I am one of many MyOpinionsmembers who had their account terminated with no warning after years of membership. I complained to their customer support as well as the parent company SSI. The latest explanation is an allegation of “suspicious logins”, and they told me I won’t have my account reinstated, nor will I be able to re-register (not that I want to anyway if this is how they treat people). I have requested their evidence for their bizarre allegations but am not holding my breath. Since it’s happened to numerous people over the past few months, I’m not buying the notion that we all coincidentally engaged in mass T+C breaches.

    MO has been going steadily downhill anyway so perhaps it’s a blessing in disguise. For a couple of years I was able to cash out $20 at least once a month, then it dropped right off this year. I had noticed they were constantly kicking me out of surveys except on my phone using Chrome (it happened on my home computer using Firefox and Chrome as well as my work computer using IE so it wasn’t browser specific or anything to do with the cache or proxy servers). It was a case of much effort for little return.

  20. Dennis permalink

    My name is Dennis and I have been a My Opinions member for a long time. I finally qualified for Platinum and wit nearly $54 worth of points ready to be cashed, all of a sudden I was terminated. No success just yet with all my emails. I will keep trying

  21. CTM permalink

    STOP PROMOTING THESE RIP OFF MERCHANTS! And I know that you know exactly what I mean with the unfettered closure of members accounts who had accumulated points ripped away from them.

  22. Howard Karl permalink

    My Opinions is a complete waste of time. I completed Surveys to earn over 2000 points. I then cashed 2000 points in on an EVoucher from which I could then buy Gift Cards. I never received my EVoucher. I emailed the Company twice but never got a reply. I think they rely on a continuing base of new members working towards their minimum 2000 points and never supplying rewards.

    Regardless of that to undertake a 200 point (equivalent to $2 reward) survey takes at the minimum 30 mins. Therefore you have to be prepared to work for $4/hour and then you are not guaranteed of any rewards.

  23. John-Paul permalink

    I have been a MyOPnions and RewardsCentral member for over 10 years. Rewardscentral I have had some good cash out in teh past but teh survey stopped or became very sparse, plus you still have to pay for your GOLD membership. MyOpinions, I had 100 points and transferred $50 to my paypal (maximum in one transaction) when I later tried to paypal the other $50 suddenly after all these years I have allegidly violated MyOpinions terms and conditions. Reallyafter all this time doing the same thing sudenly I have breached the conditions, as a consequence I emailed asking what I had done, SUPRISE no response and I have lost the $50 in the account, seems like they really want your opinion but as soon as you want your money their opinion changes. ACCOUNTS CLOSED and moving on to other sites. Any ideas out there?

    • Hi John-Paul,
      You can try emailing MyOpinions here: support@myopinions.com.au or try their Facebook page, lots of people have had problems with MyOpinions lately.I always recommended for everyone to withdraw on every survey site as soon as you have enough points,

  24. Joolz permalink

    I got ripped off badly by My Opinions too. After 10+ years of membership I got terminated (with no valid reason) with over $50 worth of points lost. I tried contacting their support but got absolutely nowhere. Does anyone know if there is an Ombudsman or Fair Trading website where we can lodge an official complaint against these people? They should not be allowed to get away with it.

  25. Steven permalink

    They are NOT CREDIBLE, cancelling peoples accounts to deliberate avoid making payments

  26. Devon permalink

    account got terminated for no reason just as trying to cash out $20 to paypal. Previously cashed out hundreds of dollars, but this time they deliberately avoided making payment and sent me packing.

  27. Marz permalink

    My account was also terminated when I tried to cash out $20 to Paypal. Got a reply after much difficulty finding a way to contact them and they wanted details of my operating system, my address and lots of other stuff – seems dodgy and an obvious scam. They owe me nearly $40 so I’m feeling really ripped off. Hope someone can catch these crooks.

  28. Naks permalink

    Myopinions is a scam. They terminate your account when you try to cash out. They used to be good but now they’re absolutely awful and won’t give you a cent.

  29. Stacey permalink

    My Opinions is definitely a dodgy survey website. I went to redeem 2000 points via PayPal. After I signed into PayPal, it went straight to a myopinions.com.au sign in or join page. So I logged in and a small message appear on screen stating my membership had been terminated. Grrrrrr!!! AVOID THEM!!!!

  30. steve permalink

    Avoid these rip offs they will waste your time with their time consuming surveys then when you earned enough points they will conveniently terminate your account No credible Explanation and will ignore you…..they are fraudalant

  31. Deb permalink

    MyOpinions needs to be reported to the ACCC or somewhere. Their treatment of panelists and their customer service is appalling. Things are fine for about a month or so and then out of the blue you get the dreaded message when attempting a survey:

    Sorry, please try another survey…

    We take answer quality and account security seriously. Unfortunately we are unable to record your participation in this survey. This can happen if you rush your answers, your answers do not match your profile data, you are not in the designated country you signed up in, or you or someone in your household already participated in this survey.

    Please clear your cache & cookies before starting another survey. If this does not help, please contact customer support.

    So I contact customer support. It takes over a week to investigate. They then terminate my account claiming I broke their terms & conditions, with no explanation of how. They claim there are inconsistencies and strange markers on my account, whatever that means. They claim I use a VPN which I don’t. I wouldn’t know the first thing about setting up a VPN. I am ALWAYS HONEST when I do surveys. So I complain again. They reinstate my account but I still can’t do surveys because the above message appears EVERY TIME I attempt to do a survey – I may as well have a terminated account. I have points sitting in my account which are close to redemption but I can’t touch them or add to them. It also causes my Opinion World account to be frozen in the same way. It is also affecting my Valued Opinions account.

    Sorry about the long post but MyOpinions has to be the WORST survey panel as far as showing respect for their panelists I have ever come across.

  32. Robyn permalink

    Most unsatisfactory – DON’T WAIST YOUR TIME- as soon as I tried to redeem 5000 of my 8000 points my account was closed saying inconsistency in answers – funny isn’t it that I did all those surveys to amass 8000 points only to be told my answers were inconsistent and have my account closed when I tried to redeem my points

  33. Gordon kimpton permalink

    Gordon my opinions l tried to cash close my occount for no reason I done nothing wrong

  34. Drew Cummings permalink

    Both my wife and I had our accounts terminated for trumped up reasons as soon as we tried to withdraw the points to PayPal. She lost about $40 and I lost $238. MyOpinions is nothing better than a scam site.

  36. Sparkles permalink

    SCAM – I completed a whole heap of surveys and went to redeem $50 and they closed my account because I ‘apparently breached their terms and conditions. Check out the reviews in other pages and you will see that this is not a one-off. Donot even consider joining up!!!

  37. emilia permalink

    I already got 3300 points I am already platinum but when I attemt to redem atleast 2000 of my points they terminate my account with out any reason,,,
