I signed up for Opinion Outpost today after reading on Web Answers that 1 guy is making close to 5$/day on that site. Unfortunately, I did not get the same results. All I got were some entries into a drawing for $1500 and I do not believe I will win that prize due to how many people there are making entries into that competition.
I spent about an hour on the site and filled out my profile and everything. Here's the problem though, every time I tried to take a survey, they screened me out because of the answers I was providing. They basically kicked me out of every survey. After each time this happened, they gave me the choice to give something to a charity for free or try to instantly win points. This happened like 5 times and each time I clicked on try to win free points(which you can trade in for money or gift cards) and I never won anything not even 10 points(which is the minimum)... talk about bad luck.
I don't know. I think it's too early to completely abandon Opinion Outpost but I think it would be insane to try again tomorrow(because there were no more surveys for me today) and expect different results. Remember, insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. After having written that, I realized that it's not too late to abandon Opinion Outpost. I'm giving up on that site already after only being a member for about an hour because history repeats itself.
I'm not saying you shouldn't try that website to make some extra money online. You might actually have more success on there than I did. I'm just sharing with you my own experience. I wouldn't be surprised if you experience exactly the same thing.
The worst part is that I feel like I was cheated into giving them a lot of private information about my household and about myself and I really didn't get much in return... not even 1 penny. So that is kind of a bummer. I haven't given up on online opportunities to make more money though. I'll keep looking for new opportunities to build little streams of income and I'll keep sharing what I find with you guys.
So far though, I have never had any real success with any kind of paid surveys site ever. I don't know if they're all scams or what but I just can't seem to personally make any money at all with surveys. Some of the sites I used would actually make me money but there just weren't enough surveys being offered on those sites to make it to the payment threshold(the amount of money needed to get a check sent to you).
PS. Make sure you check out my signature box(top right corner of this page). This is how I plan on building a Web BUSINESS. I bet you can do the same!
