Opinion Outpost Reveals Sweepstakes Odds

February 12th, 2009

After a long history of working with market research organizations and sending out payments to members, the paid survey company Opinion Outpost sent out its first ever newsletter today. Interestingly, the company actually responded to member questions and explained how their sweepstakes and instant win games work, including revealing the actual odds, something that I have seen very few other survey companies do. The newsletter also explains how to qualify for more surveys and mentions that they are switching over to a faster check processing system.

Meanwhile, if you are interested in earning some extra money and have not joined this one yet, you may do so from the banner link below (yes, registration is free).

Dear Valued Member,

Many of you contact us with questions or suggestions on how to improve your Opinion Outpost experience. We actually listen! We are excited to be sending you our first newsletter. We value you, your time, and your experiences with Opinion Outpost, and would like to answer a few of the questions we’ve received from you! If you have any other questions or concerns, make sure to check out the FAQs page of the website!

How Can I Receive More Surveys That I Qualify For?

Filling out and updating your profile surveys is the surest way to get more surveys that you will qualify for. To access your profiles, log into your account through the Opinion Outpost website. On the left side of the page, you will find a tab called “My Profiles”. We use this information to better target the types of surveys we send to you. For example, by indicating in the “Personal Vehicles” profile that you drive a Ford Taurus, we will know to send you any surveys targeting Taurus owners. Again, this is just an example.

Please keep in mind that updating your profiles does not guarantee that you will qualify for all surveys, but it does give us a good idea of what surveys to send to you.

Can I Still Get Credit For Taking A Survey, Even If I Don’t Qualify?

In the past, the only way to get credit for taking a survey was to qualify and complete it. This month, we began offering you three reward choices each time you do not qualify for a survey.

1st option - Sweepstakes: You will be entered to win a drawing for a $750 check. We will choose a winner each time there are 15,000 entries. This means potentially 15-20 winners a month!

2nd option - Instant Win: You have a chance to instantly win $50 in Opinion Outpost points at the click of a button. Roughly one of every 1,300 who click this option will have their account instantly credited with the opinion points.

3rd option - Donation: If you select this option, we will donate $.10 to the American Red Cross. While this seems like a small amount, your combined contributions will be significant! They will make a difference to our charity. You will be able to track our progress by seeing the total amount of money that Opinion Outpost panelists have donated. If you have a charity that you would like Opinion Outpost to support, please send your feedback to panel(at)opinionoutpost.com.

Why Haven’t I Received My Check?

Opinion Outpost has implemented a new process to get checks to your mailbox more efficiently. During our transition, you may have noticed a delay in receiving checks for points that you’ve cashed out. We offer our most sincere apologies for this and appreciate all of your patience. You will receive your checks on time from now on.

Thanks for reading, and remember that your suggestions or questions could end up in the next newsletter!
