Thread Details

Has any one else had more trouble with Opinion Outpost recently? I have had it with answering a large amount of questions, about very detailed information, only to find out that I did not qualify for the survey. It seems to have gotten worse. I personally will no longer be taking their surveys, but I was wondering if anyone else has had similar issues.

I have had great luck with OO, I completed $17.50 worth of surveys for them in the last hour. Most of the people I have referred to OO have had pretty good luck with them as well but a few have said the surveys have tapered off since the end of 2009 and a few said they do not get any at all. My sister was POed because I kept telling her about how much I made with them and all the PTs so she checked and said the last time she received and completed a survey from them was the second week of January. I told her to update her profiles and wait a week, then email them if she didn't receive any surveys... she had to email them, they eventually responded and she angrily forwarded me their reply.

"Thanks for contacting us about your situation of not receiving survey invitations. There are several reasons why you may not be receiving survey opportunities in your email.

Survey opportunities arriving to your email box are based on many factors. Some of the eligibility factors set by Opinion Outpost are factored in over time, which may include, but are not necessarily limited to the following of reasons: multiple accounts at one location, inconsistencies in answers, not being qualified for specific surveys, missing profile information, overly hurried responses, filling open ends with bad responses, or fraudulent sign-ups. Also, if your messages are getting filtered by spam blockers, your email account is full, or a variety of other reasons can stop you from receiving email invites.

Please keep in mind that panelists who consistently and thoughtfully respond to questions receive preferential priority over time for receiving survey invitations. If you don't receive survey opportunities over the next few weeks, and you are not included in the above list, let me know and I can look into this issue further for you."

She claims none of those apply to her but I think she may have straight lined/cruised through too many surveys and they picked up on it because she recontacted them after the email and says she has not yet received a response or any surveys.

This month has been horrible for me with respect to Opinion Outpost. I tend to fill a lot on the survey ultimately to know that i dont qualify... But i am still being patient...

Not true. Sometimes they looking for blacks, Latino and Asian. Even Pinecone Reseach won't let you unless you like Latino descent.

ha ha, read my post and the one I responded to. I meant that they don't want whites that are 20-40, they want minorities. I'm assuming that their response pool consists mainly of Caucasians that are 20-40.
