What is Opinion Inn? Another survey app? Why? Well, so we can make a little more pocket change, that’s why! Sit around and answer questions for money. It doesn’t get much easier!
This website isn’t very old, and currently, as far as I can tell, it is only available in the US. If you are in another country and OpinionInn works for you, PLEASE correct me!!!
It works both on a computer and on a smartphone, so long as you can access the website.
Joining Opinion Inn
The OpinionInn Panel Portal is a survey website that pays you to take surveys for major corporations. It costs nothing to join; just fill out the registration information.
You need to be at least 14, although some jurisdictions outside of OpinionInn’s control may have higher age requirements.
They then send you an email with a link to make a password. From that page, they give you another link to login. Keep in mind the email address you gave them will be your new username.
Fill out your profile information, and make sure you click the update button after each page is complete. Do be sure and fill out all the profile pages. This helps Opinion Inn find you the right surveys.
This is what it’s all about! Surveys! Surveys! Surveys! You can find them behind the Your Survey and Home tabs. There’s a table listing surveys along with the survey’s title, ID, the incentive (payment), and country.
Incentives range from $0.50 to $100.00. Don’t expect many of the high-end surveys.
The timing of crediting incentives depends on the survey. For some surveys, credits are applied very quickly or within a few days. With others, the credits are applied as soon as the survey has closed.
You may have to wait for six to eight weeks from survey closure for points to be credited to your account, though OpinionInn tries to limit this sort of delay as much as possible.
Like with any other survey app or website, you’ll get kicked if you don’t meet the particular parameters desired by the company sponsoring the survey. It happens. A lot!
Sometimes, you can fill out all the qualifying credentials, get approved, and when it comes time to start the survey you will find that it has been filled.
Don’t let repeated kicks get your feelings hurt or make you want to quit. Just keep trying. Eventually, it will be worth your while, as long as you aren’t trying to make a full-blown living this way.
You will occasionally receive email invitations to surveys that Opinion Inn feels you are qualified for.
What Else Is There?
Opinion Inn is pretty simple. There are surveys and occasional polls. I haven’t accessed any polls, yet. There are no games or suggested downloads or offers.
You do get a $10.00 bonus just for signing up. No withdrawals can be made until you reach at least $25.00. This isn’t a bad amount, considering that some survey apps make you wait until you have $30.00.
Monetary rewards are primarily paid through PayPal. If you don’t have a PayPal account yet, go ahead and make one. It’s free and secure.
Be a part of the monthly draw of $500 if you are an active member and have attempted at least 5 surveys in that month. The names of the winners are displayed on the portal on every 7th of each month.
Participants are encouraged to offer support by donating a portion of their incentive to NGOs around the world with whom Opinion Inn has partnered. This is strictly optional, though. There is no obligation to contribute.
