NeoBux Review 2018 – Is it a Complete Waste of Your Time?

Looking for a way to earn some extra money from home, then maybe you have come to the right spot, and in this NeoBux Review, I will show you that it is possible but it will cost you.

NeoBux Review
NeoBux Login

NeoBux is one of the original PTC(Pay to Click) sites that have been around for just over a decade now, which in the life of a PTC site is quite an achievement, or so it would seem.

With more and more of these PTC sites getting dropped by the wayside with PayPal not having anything to do with them, it looks like NeoBux has also gone the same way, but don’t jump ship, not just yet!

What actually got my curiosity was the claims of some of the NeoBux members (within the forum) claiming to be earning huge amounts of money, by a technique that is unique to NeoBux, but takes time and can cost you a whole bunch of money, but we can cover that a little later.

Anyway without further ado, let’s jump right into this review.

What is NeoBux About?What is NeoBux About

NeoBux is a PTC (Paid to click) site that has been around since 2008 and is owned by a Portuguese company NEODEV LDA who are based in Porto.

I can’t see any restrictions on members and which countries they come from and I believe it is ok to say that all countries are accepted into NeoBux. The problem might be when trying to access any money that you make.

Initially, this site was created to allow members to get paid by clicking on their client’s advertisements, but over the years they have added a number of other ways to earn money, such as surveys, playing games, offers, etc.

Looks like they are trying to move from a PTC site to a GPT (Get Paid To) site just like Clixsense as there are many similarities.

How Does NeoBux Work?

NeoBux.com get paid by their clients for handling and marketing their products on a PPC(Pay Per Click) or PPV(Pay Per View) basis which are affiliate marketing terms within internet traffic, where the client pays NeoBux.com for viewing and/or clicking on adverts, regardless of whether anything is purchased or not.

A portion of that amount is passed onto the NeoBux members for their time in viewing or clicking on the client’s ads.


How Much Can I Make with NeoBux?

Now you can check through the NeoBux forum and check out members stats and how they are performing, as there are some interesting results if what you read can be believed, but I have no reason to disbelieve this, so feel free to check them out for yourself.

NeoBux Forum

The main source of income on NeoBux.com is through “Renting Referrals”.

OK, now this is where it can get a little complicated and when these types of sites have any sort of complexity then in my experience they are trying to hide something. I will touch on that method a little later in the review.


NeoBux was initially created as a PTC site so we’ll take a look at the main source which is clicking on ads.

Just so that you don’t miss anything, you can set up an alarm to inform you when these ads are getting posted to your account. Just go into your personal settings.

NeoBux Ad Alert

The below image is the “View Advertisements” display.

NeoBux Advertisments

As you can see this is where the ads are stored for you to click on and get paid which don’t come around as often as you’d like. In my experience, you get around 20 ads on a day to day basis.

All you have to do is click on the ad box and a red dot will appear which you have to click (God forbid if a robot was involved) and wait for the ad to display, then you have to wait until the time expires which in all takes about 12-15 seconds.

There are 2 different amounts to my knowledge that you can get paid for clicking on ads…

  • $0.001 which is the normal amount paid.
  • $0.005 don’t come around often, so don’t get too excited when they do.

That’s 1/10th and 1/2 of a cent respectively

Let’s just take a look at how long it takes to make $1

$0.001

If you managed to receive continuous advertisements (which you obviously don’t) then to reach $1 it would take you approximately 4 hours based on 15 seconds per ad view.

Which gives you an hourly rate of around $0.25 for clicking 1000 Ads.

$0.005

It would take 50 minutes to generate $1.

That’s an hourly rate of just over $1.00 for clicking on around 200 Ads.

Experience tells me that you will be lucky if you are given 20 ads in a day to click on!


Now, it doesn’t take a genius to realize that this is absolutely horrendous pocket change, but I do understand in some countries where the economy is bad with jobs and money extremely tight, that every little helps and that this type of online opportunity seems to be acceptable.

Since I became a member of NeoBux.com I’ve come to realize that I was wasting my time and that there are better opportunities out there such as…

Swagbucks and TopCashBack which are better alternatives if earning a few bucks here and there is what you are happy with?

Alternatively, you could look at the bigger picture and focus your time in a more productive way and learn how to build an online business, and the beauty about this is that it is FREE to join and NO CREDIT CARD will be asked for.


How to Get Started with NeoBux

NeoBux Registration

That’s pretty straightforward.

Just click the register tab at the top right of the display on the main screen and enter your…

  • Username
  • Password
  • Email address
  • Referrer, if you have come through a referral.
  • Date of birth year
  • Select terms and consent and continue.

Almost immediately you will receive an email to activate your membership and then you are ready to go.

Other Ways to Maximize Your Money with NeoBux

OK, so we have pretty much covered the main source of earning with NeoBux which is clicking on ads. Now let’s take a look at other ways to at least keep you moving in the right direction.

  • Mini Jobs

Want to mix it up a little then check out the mini-jobs, which incidentally don’t look too mini to me. Take a look for yourself!

NeoBux Mini Jobs

Let’s take a look at the 2 so-called mini-jobs that you can see in the above image.

There are 105 tasks before you reach your goal of $0.75 and just how long the tasks take to complete is anybody’s guess. I wasn’t about to try!

The 2nd job in the list, here you have to complete 1000 tasks before you reach the same goal as the one above of $0.75. Come on seriously?

Note: It is my understanding that you could be spending several hours on let’s say the 2nd job with 1000 tasks, and right up to completing those tasks which are going to be taking some considerable time, you could be thrown out and end up losing everything, well the 75 cents anyway.


  • Surveys

Now I don’t know about you but I have spent many hours in the past doing surveys earning very little money, and quite frankly I hated them.

Nowadays they are even worse as there are so many more similar sites competing for the same space.

NeoBux Surveys

I tried around 10 surveys spending quite some time filling in the pre-qualification questions only to be thrown out and been told that I didn’t qualify, and that’s a big problem nowadays, not just here with NeoBux but with all the other survey sites.


  • Playing Games

Another addition to help increase the time you spend on the NeoBux.com site, and it just doesn’t seem to be getting any better!

NeoBux Games

There is a maximum number of games you can play in any 24 hours, which is 250. Mind you, who is going to play 250 games in any one day? Not me that is for sure!

The maximum time that you have to play a game is 2 minutes.

Maximum number of games = 250 * $0.001 = $0.25

Yes, a quarter of a dollar for playing games for 8 hours and 20 minutes.


  • Coin Offers

Coin offers are the NeoBux virtual currency that can be exchanged for money.

Here you have a whole host of other ways to earn a little money, such as watching videos, surveys, shopping etc

But, you’ll have to wait 60 days from the successful offer completion date for these to be credited to your account.

NeoBux Coin Offers

If you are curious to know more about this virtual currency and the value for exchanging to real currency then you might want to check out this explanation.


  • Refer a Friend or direct referrals.

Direct referrals can only be invited after you have a been a member for currently 15 days and that you have clicked on at least 100 ads.

There are limitations on how many referrals you are allowed to invite, based on which membership level you are currently on.

  • Free: 30
  • Pioneer: 60 (Free member who joined before 1st May 2008)
  • Golden: 200 (Cost $90 a year)
  • Golden + Pioneer: 250 (Cost $90 a year)
  • Golden + Emerald: 300 ( Cost $90 + $290 = $380 a year)
  • Golden + Sapphire:  300 (Cost $90 + $290 = $380 a year)
  • Golden + Platinum: 400 (Cost $90 + $490 = $580 a year)
  • Golden + Diamond: 400 (Cost $90 + $490 = $580 a year)
  • Golden + Ultimate: Unlimited (Cost $90 + $890 = $980 a year)

  • Rented Referrals

In NeoBux, this subject is quite vast and therefore I won’t be going deep into this complex area. Well its complex for a reason, right?

What I will tell you is that “Rented Referrals” are supposed to be members who haven’t made any referrals.

Now, if you go into the forum and start to look at some of the stats of members who are supposed to be raking in the money, you can see against just the one member that there are thousands (10s of) of rented referrals.

Remember these are supposed to be actual members, and therefore I guess we are talking about millions of these rented referrals. So that should mean that there are millions of members on NeoBux, right?

If that was the case then don’t you think that promoting “the current number of members on NeoBux” would be a good selling point, and a way to get even more members recruited?

Of course, you do, but I can’t find a mention anywhere of how many NeoBux members they currently are. Do you see where I am coming from?

What I will mention is that you can only rent a certain amount of referrals based on your membership level, which comes down to a yearly cost, which I have highlighted above.

Rented referrals are purchased for a period of time and have to be extended at cost.

You have to monitor those rented referrals because if they aren’t clicking on ads then you are paying for nothing. There is software to purchase to help you here, at a cost of around $7.

Remember you are making a percentage of what your rented referral is making, and considering a single advertisement you can make either $0.001 or $0.005.

That’s a % on either a 1/10th or 1/2th of a CENT, SERIOUSLY!

Don’t forget that although it could cost you nearly $1,000 to upgrade your membership, it will still cost you in addition for each “Rented Referral”, not to mention costs for extending those referrals too.

If you are still interested to know more about “Rented Referrals” then you can check out a couple of resources that I found for you which explains it in more detail, but remember what I said earlier in the review, that there was a complicated element? Well, this is it so good luck!

Introduction to NeoBux and Rented Referrals

NeoBux ultimate guide of Rented Referrals


How Does NeoBux Pay You?

I guess we all have a PayPal account but unfortunately this is not a payment method that is open to you. PayPal decided to pull the plug!

You need to set up an account with either…

Skrill, which is a payment management company from the UK

or

Netteller who are based in the Isle of Man

Although NeoBux is open to all countries then you should seriously do your research and find out exactly whether there might be issues with the type of payment method that you have to use.


NeoBux Pros and Cons

It doesn’t matter what type of business or company when it comes to issues they all have their fair share of them, but I am struggling to actually find anything positive to say about NeoBux.

Pros

  • Website

My first glance at the software and it looks very professional.

  • Multi-National

NeoBux is available in all countries, and what they don’t explain in detail is that there are only 2 payment processes that you can currently use and this could be a problem within some countries.

Cons

  • Free, well it really isn’t!

Free it may be to join, but as you have seen in this review in order to try and progress and earn more money you have to upgrade your membership, which could end up costing you as much as $980 a year as well as other costs on top of that too. I have seen reports of 10s of 1000s of dollars!

  • PayPal

PayPal generally is the normal payment process online, and it’s one that we all know and is used to, but NeoBux lost the backing of PayPal and I guess this is down to PTC sites and the way they operate.

  • Minimum Threshold 

Well, it starts off OK at $2, but each time you cash out it goes up in increments of $2 until it reaches the upper level of $10.

  • Where is the Mobile App?

There is no mobile app which means you have to be near a laptop or pc which means you can’t be out and about.

  • Not qualifying for surveys

Hanging about filling in pre-qualification surveys is not my idea of a good time especially when you can’t seem to qualify for a damn survey.

  • Getting Banned

Reading many reviews from members, it would appear that you have to watch what you say in the forum and can get banned for asking the wrong questions.

I have also heard it going around that they monitor for things being said about the company which gives them a reason to ban you.

In many cases, I have seen members complain of losing everything even though they have been with NeoBux for a number of years.

  • Number of Members

It’s a bit of a closed shop when trying to find out just how many members there are at NeoBux.com and I couldn’t find any mention of this anywhere.

  • Referring Others to Join

Having a referral program is usually a big plus but here at NeoBux.com, you are restricted on the number of referrals that you can invite, and the way to extend that number is to upgrade your membership which costs money.

  • Rented Referrals

Many members are suggesting that those so-called rented referrals are in fact just bots, but there is no way that I could confirm that one way or the other.

Maybe the reason why we can’t find out the total number of members that are on NeoBux is that this might disclose where those rented referrals are actually coming from.

  • Paying for Rented Referrals

This is where it starts to cost and the amounts are quite staggering and well into the tens of thousands of dollars. I have seen it mentioned as high as $75,000 for renting 1,000s of referrals and to get to that point will take you years.


NeoBux Review – Final Thoughts!

Is NeoBux a legitimate online business and I have to say it is, but for me, that’s where the buck stops, because as you can see you are not going to be earning great amounts of money and the main reason why I would not recommend NeoBux.com.

Some will disagree with why I am not recommending this online opportunity, but the facts are there for everybody to see.

Even when I look at the all the positive reviews on sites like Trust Pilot, I still can’t get my head around why this is the case, but maybe people are just happy with a few bucks here and there and I’m OK with that.

I do understand that some countries which I have noticed are struggling with their economy and therefore any amount of money is better than none, but rather than spend all day on these sites wouldn’t it be more productive learning how to build an online business and switching places?

I was that person not too long ago now, taking surveys and clicking on ads and they drove me mad until I decided that either I learn how to make some real money online or give up altogether and get a real job. Guess what I did?


Comments

Anyway, if you are reading this then I have to thank you for your time and patience, and hopefully, I have managed to give you most of the facts.

If you are a member of NeoBux.com then I would love to hear from you and tell me how its been going? Did you manage to crack the rented referrals? How much did you have to invest and how much did you make?

Any problems with NeoBux as I’d like to know.

If you enjoyed the review then why not share a little love and share it amongst your friends who are maybe looking for a little guidance.

Pinecone Research Review 2018: Are they Legit and Why so Exclusive?

Looking for an online survey site with a little exclusivity, then you are in the right place, and in this Pinecone Research review I go into great detail, and cover all the positive and negative aspects that you need to know before you decide to get on board.

Pinecone Research Review
Pinecone research login

Pinecone Research as now been around a while and belongs to one of the biggest names in the market research industry, who has been operating in that niche since 1923, which is closely hitting the century mark.

As probably one of the most exclusive sites there is when it comes to online survey sites and extremely hard to join, so what does that tell us?

Well, maybe they just want to keep a tight reign on things or maybe they are hiding the fact that there really aren’t that many surveys to go around?

All the same when something becomes “exclusive” it only adds more fuel to the fire because this makes people extremely curious and wanting to know more.

With so many different survey sites available it’s really so difficult to determine which ones are legit and which ones aren’t.

What you see is what you get here at Pinecone Research so without further ado, let’s get right into the review.


Pinecone Research Logo

  • Owners: Nielsen Holdings or The Nielsen Company
  • Product: Pinecone Research
  • Website: www.pineconeresearch.com
  • Price: 100% Free
  • Based in: US, Canada and the UK
  • Founded: 1998
  • Managed by: William Miller
  • Summary: You get paid either in cash or vouchers for taking part in surveys.
  • Recommended: Yes
  • Reasoning: Although I’m not a fan of survey sites due to the amount of time it takes to generate some cash, here you have to be selected to become a Panellist, which gives them a little street cred and member reviews are more on the positive side.

What is Pinecone Research About?

Pinecone Research Banner

Pinecone Research is an exclusive online survey website that’s been around since 1999 and is based in the US but is also available in Canada, UK and Germany.

Been around for 2 decades and therefore must be doing something right, especially as they check you out first before you are allowed to become a member. A little on that later!

They belong to one of the largest and most successful market research companies out there, Nielsen Holdings, who have been around since 1923 and employ over 40,000 across 100 countries worldwide.

How Does Pinecone Research Work?

Pinecone Research works within the confines of affiliate marketing, where clients or advertisers would employ the likes of Pinecone Research to handle their market research regarding their products and/or services.

This all helps the client to better improve their current products and services which is passed onto the consumer at a later date so that we can all benefit.

Here at Pinecone Research, they do things a little differently when it comes to becoming a member, and it’s not quite as simple and straightforward as many of the other survey sites that you can find online.

There’s an air of exclusivity about Pinecone Research in that to become a member, firstly you have to be invited either from an existing member or through one of the links or banners that you can find on various websites

and then

you have to fill in a serious of questions regarding your demographics before you are accepted.

If you are lucky enough to be accepted into this exclusive club, then a member becomes what they call a “survey panellist”

Be aware of fraudulent scams!

In the past, Pinecone Research has been victim to some unscrupulous dealings where others have been using the names and logos to try and get people to join and in many cases, this was successfully carried off.

This at the time was known as “The Mystery Shopping Scam” and you can read more about it on their website here.


How Much Can I Make with Pinecone Research?

Obviously, the more time that you put into these opportunities then the more you will earn, but there is a catch here.

Sitting at your laptop or PC all day long taking survey after survey will not cut it, because most of the time you will be left staring into an empty space.

The number of surveys available to you will be minimal, so what I would suggest if taking surveys is what you like doing, is join a couple more survey sites to fill in the time when you aren’t receiving surveys from Pinecone Research.

Such as SwagBucks, Mysurvey or Survey Junkie to hopefully speed up the make money process.

The pay structure is pretty straightforward.

They will pay you $3 for every survey that you complete which can be anywhere from 5 right up to 30 minutes.

There is the chance that you may be sent a survey where they pay you $5 but these are rare, but all the same anywhere from $3 – $5 is possible.

Trying to give you an hourly rate would be impossible as this is all down to how many surveys you have access to.

In order to get anywhere near the average hourly rate of $10, you would need to be taking at least 3 surveys an hour, and that would be 3 every hour which means 1 every 20 minutes with a total of 24 in any one 8 hour working day. If in fact, you are looking to replace that current job of yours!

3 surveys = 900 points = $9.00 an hour

900 points * 8 (# hours in a working day) = 7200 points = $72.00 a day

7200 points * 5 (# of working days) = 36,000 points =  $360.00

That’s 120 surveys that you are hoping for, with an emphasis on “hope”!

I don’t want to put a blocker on things but there is no way that you will receive 24 surveys in a day. You’ll be lucky if you manage 6 at the very most in a week.

The payment structure is based on a points system, where 100 points are equivalent to $1 so as you can see every survey would pay a minimum of 300 points.

Not great in the grand scheme of things but compared to many other survey sites which pay a lot less then this is a good rate.


How to Get Started with Pinecone Research

The norm would be to tell you that it is 100% Free to join and that it is a simple straightforward process!

100% Free it is, but simple and straightforward it isn’t!

Off the bat when you arrive at the Pinecone Research website you will see that there isn’t an immediate joining form.

I had to do a thorough search and eventually found a contact form at the bottom of the website.

Pincone Research Contact Form1

Pinecone Research Contact Form 2

Once I had filled in the form and included the “I want to join” I was immediately shown the below message.

Pinecone Research Look 4 Banners and Links

The reason for this is that Pinecone Research only opens their doors to new members on a not too regular basis.

Ideally, asking a friend who is already a member would be the way to go, although another way would be to search in Google and find the various Pinecone Research banners and sign up links, using a search term and changing the date period for most current. Something like…

Google Search For Pinecone Research Signup

Even finding the right links and entering your details may not be enough!

Pinecone Research No Members Accepted

Perseverance is the key here!


Other ways to Maximize Points with Pinecone Research

Surveys, been the main source of income, there are others too.

  • Product Testing

Every now and then Pinecone Research may send out products to their “survey panellists” with instructions on how to test them and in some cases new products that haven’t even been released to the consumer market, so here you can have your say in a new product before it hits the market. Cool eh?

Unfortunately, this is not something you can volunteer for and if it happens then it happens, but I wouldn’t sit around waiting.

You will probably have to fill in some form of “post-test” survey for which you will earn $6 and a further $3 for answering questions regarding the product.

The great thing about this is that you most probably will be able to keep the product after testing.

  • Sweepstakes

Pinecone Research has regular bi-weekly and quarterly sweepstakes that you are entered into. No purchase or payment is required!

The weekly draw is $500

The quarterly draw is $4,500

For further details, I’d like to refer you to the Pinecone Research website.


How Does Pinecone Research Pay You?

Pinecone Research Redeem PointsThere is no minimum payment threshold to meet and therefore as soon as you have completed a survey you can redeem those points.

There are 3 ways that Pinecone Research will pay you.

  • Cash

Getting paid by  PayPal is the norm and the most trusted way online and one we are familiar with.

Allow 4-5 business working days for the amount to be transferred.

  • Checks

Checks might be your preference but remember they take time and besides there is always a chance that they may get lost in transit.

Don’t forget that it also takes approximately 5 business working days for checks to clear at your bank too.

  • Gift Cards

Another popular way of exchanging points is through gift cards from Amazon, Walmart etc.

  • Miscellaneous

You could also purchase the various products that are available on the website, enter into one of the prize draws/competitions, or if you are feeling generous then why not donate to a worthy cause.


Pinecone Research Pros and Cons

As always no matter how good a product or service is there will always be some who are not happy, so here we are grouping all what we think are the most important points for and against, for you to decide to join one way or the other.

Pros

  • Free to join 

Always a plus is when something is for free and here at Pinecone Research joining is 100% Free, but this type of opportunity should always be free and if you see that it isn’t, then stay well away.

In the past Pinecone Research has had their issues with others cloning the site and trying to benefit, so be careful.

  • Pre-qualified for surveys

Pinecone Research only sends out surveys that match your demographics and therefore you will not have to endure the pre-qualification questions that you have to on many other survey sites.

Nothing worse than spending 10-15 minutes on a survey only to be told that, you didn’t qualify. A sure way to drive you mad and force you to cancel your membership!

Yes, it is true that the number of surveys you receive will not be many but the ones you are sent will be viable.

  • BBB (Better Business Bureau) rating

If you are like me and always check out whether a business opportunity is legit or not, a member of BBB is usually a good sign and that they are on the right track.

Their owners Nielsen have an A+ rating so all good there.

  • Product Testing

You could be selected for product testing which is great, I mean how cool would it be to have a product that has not even reached the consumer market, run a few tests, get paid for doing so and been able to keep the product?

  • Pay is really good

In comparison with other online survey sites, the pay is good and they don’t try to hide things. When they say $3 – $5 a survey then that’s exactly what you get, and not a few cents here and a few cents there like most other online survey websites.

  • No Minimum Cash Out

Yes, you heard me, as soon as you have completed a survey, Pinecone Research will pay you, and that means not having to wait days or weeks to climb to that minimum threshold before you can cash.

Cons

  • No Referral Program

This is something that might not go down well with some because this is normally a great way for many to earn a decent amount of money, but as this is an exclusive site and they want to control who they invite as “Survey Panellists” then I can see why.

  • Where is the Mobile App?

At the moment Pinecone Research doesn’t have a mobile app so that means sitting at the desktop or laptop while taking surveys, which is not great for many of us who want to be out and about.

  • Invite Only 

Some may like the fact that they belong to a select crowd, and that is OK but trying to join can be difficult as doors only open when they want some additional help.

They post banner ads from time to time on various websites but you have to be quick, or you could get a friend to invite you.

Alternatively, you could do a quick “Google search” but look for the most recent links.

  • Where are my surveys?

You can find a number of complaints amongst the pinecone research reviews that you can find dotted around in places like Trustpilot, SurveyPolice etc.

Where members are sitting around waiting for surveys and it’s quite normal to only be given 2-5 each week and even that figure you will find on the high side.

It has been known to receive only 2 surveys in any given month!


Pinecone Research Review 2018 – Final Thoughts!

We have come to the point where you have to decide one way or the other whether this survey site is really for you.

As with all online survey sites you are not going to break the bank and therefore I wouldn’t give up your full-time job just yet!

Is Pinecone Research legit, and I have to say Yes, absolutely, as long as you are aware that you can only earn a few dollars here and there, and don’t even think about earning several hundred dollars a month because that’s not going to happen. I would like to say otherwise, but I have tried!

But why not think long term and focus that precious time in a more constructive way, and hey who knows, in 1-2 years time we could be sitting down together discussing why we hadn’t done it much sooner.

If you have a little spare time, check out this review and see what you think, and just in case you think I may be trying to con you, this is 100% free, with no upsells and no credit card asked for. Can’t be fairer than that and besides this might be right up your street!

Any questions please don’t hesitate to ask?


Comments

What is Opinion Outpost and Does Your Opinion Really Count?

With the vast amount of online survey sites that are available to you nowadays, it must seem like a real daunting task just finding the right ones to invest your time in, so what is opinion outpost like now, and can it deliver like it used to a few years ago?

With the promise of “easy money”, “simplicity” and “with no skills required”, make it no wonder that these survey websites are the most popular when it comes to earning some extra money online.

But…

Finding the right one that actually pays a reasonable amount is difficult with so many promising that you can earn hundreds a month when in reality this is just a few dollars.

Opinionoutpost.com used to be a good survey site but is it any good nowadays and does your opinion really count?

Let’s take a look and see, shall we?

What is Opinion Outpost?

Get Paid For Your Opinion

OpinionOutpost.com is a market research company who pays people like you and me who join and become members for taking part and sharing our opinions on products and services.

This helps to better the product and/or service on many levels.

They used to be only available in the US but in recent times have expanded the business to the UK, Canada, Germany, France, Spain and Italy.

They have been around for more than a decade and belong to Survey Sampling International or SSI for short who is a major player and have operated in the market research industry since 1977.

How Does Opinion Outpost Work?

Major corporations approach companies like opinionoutpost.com and employ them to take care of their market research on products and services and to get feedback which enables them to better their products and services.

In order to do that Opinion Outpost match the product and/or services with the demographics of the consumer, which in this case will be you the member, and for your time and input, you will be rewarded with points that you can redeem as cash or through vouchers when you have reached the minimum threshold.


How Much Can I Make with Opinion Outpost?

In my experience, it depends on how much time you put into this opportunity, not only that but how much you can earn is controlled by the number of emails you receive and the number of surveys that you will qualify for.

According to what current members are saying and this fluctuates from one member to the other, you should be able to earn between $1 and $3 an hour and that’s only if you can qualify for 4+ surveys which is an unrealistic figure, but if you can manage $3 an hour you are doing great.

Of course, trying to sustain this hourly figure you will find extremely difficult, in fact almost impossible, especially as surveys can take anywhere from 5 to 30 minutes.

With the average normal weekly hourly rate around 8 to 10 dollars, you will struggle but hey if a few dollars here and there is what you are happy with then that is ok. I have been there and got the teeshirt!

If you are lucky you might receive 2-3 emails on a daily basis and with these surveys, you should stand a better chance of getting accepted, but be quick because they fill up quickly.

The number of points rewarded for completing a survey is between 1 and 30.

1 point = $0.10

100 points = $10 which is the minimum required for cash through PayPal.

50 points = $5 is whats required for Amazon or iTunes eCards/vouchers.


How to Get Started with Opinion Outpost

Opinion Outpost is now Global

Opinionoutpost.com is 100% free to join and take part in.

Enter your name and a valid email address.

Just click the link here.

You will then receive an email which you need to reply to activate your account.

You will then be met with a number of questions which are pretty straightforward.

These are your demographics which allows opinionoutpost.com to categorize the various types of surveys which best match your details.

After you have filled those details in then you should receive emails on a regular basis. When I say regular I mean maybe 2-3 daily.

Bear in mind these surveys fill up quickly so its a first come first served basis.

Once you have qualified and completed a survey then you will be rewarded by way of points, which can be redeemed for cash or vouchers at a later date.


Other Ways to Maximize Points with Opinion Outpost

The main source of generating points at opinion outpost is obviously through taking surveys.

These are either through the website or through emails which are sent out to you.

There are other ways listed below!

  • Free quarterly competition.

Once you have attempted a survey (that means you don’t have to complete it) then you are entered into a quarterly draw where you stand a chance of winning $10,000.

That’s $40,000 in cash awarded over a yearly period to 4 lucky members.

  • Refer a friend

Some time ago their referral program was cancelled but re-instated due to popular demand.

For each friend you refer who completes at least 1 survey you are rewarded with $1 with a maximum of $5 that can be earned.

That’s a total of 5 friends. Not the best but hey, every little helps!


How Does Opinion Outpost Pay You?

Opinion Outpost Payment Options

Once you have reached 100 points which is the minimum threshold you have to meet to redeem those points for cash via PayPal.

50 points are the minimum number of points required for an Amazon or iTunes gift card.

Note:

I wouldn’t hang around and try to build your account balance for bigger things as many are having issues when withdrawing their cash!

So minimum threshold and cash out!


Opinion Outpost Pros and Cons

When it comes to complaints and of course praise then no company or product is exempt, and here is the section that people are most interested in, and hopefully here you will be able to decide whether Opinion Outpost is for you or not!

Pros

  • Free to join 

The fact that Opinion Outpost is free to join and take part in is a plus.

  • Referral Program

By introducing your friends you can earn $1 for every person you introduce, up to a maximum of $5, which isn’t great because I’m sure that you’ll have more than 5 friends you would like to introduce.

  • Minimum Payout is good!

Normally with these opportunities, you will find $20 and upwards as the minimum threshold for cashing out, but here the minimum cash payout when using PayPal is $10 which is only 100 points, and Amazon or iTunes vouchers are even better at $5.

  • PayPal

The only way of cashing out and the one we are most familiar.

 Cons

  • Minimum number of referrals

Although I added the fact that they have a referral program in the “Pro” section I don’t like that they have a restriction on the amount you can introduce which is currently a maximum of 5.

What you will see with many of these survey sites is that the referral program in many cases is where members can actually earn a decent amount, but here you are held back.

This is a great way of introducing others and spreading the word but your word won’t be spread very far!

  • Disqualified from surveys

Something you will never get away from.

Before you start filling in the actual survey there will be a pre-survey questionnaire that you’d need to complete first, and it’s here that you will know whether you have been accepted for the survey or not.

In my experience, you may find that you only qualify for 25% of the surveys that you apply for and that is a conservative estimate.

Don’t worry because you will find this annoying factor on all survey websites!

  • BBB (Better Business Bureau)

If you are like myself who checks for a BBB rating then, unfortunately, you won’t find one through Opinionoutpost.com but you can find a BBB rating for their owners who are Survey Sampling International

This is where you will also find members having their say.

Some interesting reading here in the additional information section!

  • Where is support?

This is where I draw a line when it comes to accessing whether a business is worth investing your time in or not.

Members are screaming out for all sorts of issues and finding it extremely difficult to get replies.

You don’t have to look very far either!

  • Surveys fill up quickly 

Emails are supposed to be sent out to you daily on a regular basis with invitations to surveys and you need to be quick because these surveys fill up pretty quickly. On a first come first served basis!

  • Lost payments and accounts getting terminated

If you check the various review sites you will see plenty of issues with payments and vouchers getting lost and accounts being terminated, in a lot of cases for no other reason than trying to cash out.

Another reason why you should try to cash out each time you reach the minimum threshold of $10.

  • Website dropping the line and losing connection

Members complaining of been frozen out of the website for many reasons and not been able to sign back in, in some cases for several days.

What members are saying!

What is Opinion Outpost – Final Thoughts!

A few years ago Opinion Outpost was up there as one of the best online survey websites.

I should know as I am a member, but in the last couple of years, things seem to have taken a nosedive, like they have for many other similar sites and maybe its because they are so many nowadays?

Well is opinion outpost legit?

In my opinion, only just, although if you check the various review sites that are out there, then you might think otherwise.

If you like doing surveys for a little extra money and a bit of fun, then go for it, but if you are looking for a way to make some serious money and make a full-time income online, then I’m afraid then this is not for you.

If you want a survey site with a little difference where you can accumulate cash through other activities, such as watching videos, playing games, shopping, then why not check out SwagBucks as they have a multitude of different ways to earn.

or

Maybe you have had enough of trying to earn a few dollars here and there, and would like to turn the tables and learn how to start your very own online business? Then check this out and see what you think!

Nothing ventured and, wait for it; it’s FREE to join with NO UPSELLS and you won’t even be asked for your CREDIT CARD details either!

Check it out and see what you think and pop me a question in the comments section below.

Congrats, you made it!

Are you a member of Opinion Outpost? Any bad experiences?

What is Toluna: A Legit Survey Site with a Difference or Not?

Survey sites are up there at the top when it comes to people looking for ways to make money online, with promises of earning great amounts of dosh, so what is Toluna and can it deliver?  Let’s see, shall we?

What is Toluna
Toluna login

You are here because you have heard the stories that filling in surveys is easy and that you can make a good living, but are those stories believable?

The amount of money that you can make on these sites is usually over exaggerated and the reality is that you have to spend many hours online for very little reward.

I started my online career just like many others filling in surveys and after a while, you quickly get to know if a site is worthy of your time or not!

Take Toluna.com for instance.

When I registered my details and received an acknowledgement email which I responded to, I tried to sign into the site and my password wasn’t recognized, and when I tried to recover my password details and entered the same email address I didn’t even receive a response after many attempts.

More on that later!

What do they say about first impressions?

What is Toluna Surveys About?

Toluna Inspire share gain

Founded by Frederic-Charles Petit back in 2000 and part of the Toluna Group who are registered in the UK at companies house with headquarters in Paris.

Toluna Influencers (as they are known now) are located throughout the world with near to 10 million members from many countries and work in the market research niche.

They cover 30+ countries worldwide which makes them one of the biggest online survey sites out there.

Toluna.com is a market research platform which is a little different to other survey sites I have come across.

Members are part of a community who are able to create their own content and take part in discussions with other members about anything, by creating polls and topics, and getting feedback in real-time for which you are rewarded points.


How Does Toluna Work?

Toluna.com act as a go-between, a sort of middleman, where Toluna members are connected to companies to take part in market research by way of filling in surveys.

Passing on your comments and feedback has a direct impact on how companies market their products and services to consumers just like yourself.


How Much Can I Make with Tuluna?

Really, this depends on a few parameters suchToluno survey as demographics which is the information you give the site when registering.

Availability of the surveys is all down to how quickly you respond to emails which are sent out. These surveys come on a first come first served basis and if you are not quick enough you will miss out!

Toluna works on a points system or a virtual currency that they like to identify with, which you are rewarded for taking part in surveys along with other activities and once you have reached a minimum threshold those points can be redeemed for cash.

Currently, the points to cash ratio is…

3000 points = $1

In order to redeem your points, you need at least 30,000 points which equates to $10.

In theory, the longer the survey the greater the number of points awarded but in reality, it all depends on a number of factors.

Such as the client and the length of the survey and providing you actually do qualify for that particular survey. Sometimes you will find this out 15 minutes into the survey. I know, a nightmare isn’t it?


How to Get Started

It’s free to join and to register, you simply click Toluna.com which will take you to the Toluna login display and the “Sign-up” is in the top right corner of the screen.

Just enter a few particulars and you should be ready to go.

  • First name
  • Last name
  • Date of birth
  • Gender
  • Email address
  • Country
  • Zip Code
  • Password
  • Mobile number

Once you have signed up you will need to respond to an email that is sent out to complete the registration.

Just for signing up Toluna rewards you with 500 points which gives you a bit of a start. This is around $0.16. Not much but every little count!

Once registered, don’t forget to install the mobile iPhone App. This way you won’t miss anything when you are out and about!


Other Ways to Maximize Points with Toluna

Toluna share something

  • Creating quality content within the community forum can boost your points total by up to 1000 points. Around 33 cents!
  • Earn points for participating in contests run by the Toluna team.
  • You are also encouraged to go ahead and create your own contests within the community and for that, you could be rewarded with a 5,000 points bonus as an incentive. That’s around $1.66
  • Why not create new topics and polls within the community allowing the members to take part in the discussions where you will be rewarded for your time.
  • If you can’t decide on 2 options then create what they call a Battle between the 2 and let the community decide.
  • If you are on the fence about something then create a Thumb It and let the members decide, whether thumbs up or thumbs down.
  • There is a daily millionaire sweepstake which you can take part in but the tickets will cost you 500 points, and to qualify, you must have a profile image and be an active member within the 30 days prior to the sweepstake.
  • Profile surveys come up all the time and can be found by clicking the “survey” tab at the top of the site and here you can find the “Profiles survey” option. These are there for your benefit and to improve the number and type of surveys you receive. Each profile survey is worth 100 points!
  • What about referring a friend which is always a good way to get rewarded for doing nothing. You will receive 500 points for a referral when the interest surveys are completed.
Rewards for comments – “Replies” to “points” to “cash equivalent”

These are the points rewarded for taking part in the community forum for replying to discussions.

  • 20  =  500    = $ 0.16
  • 30  =  1000  = $ 0.32
  • 40  =  2000 = $ 0.64
  • 50  =  3000 = $ 1.00
  • 75   = 3500 =  $ 1.16
  • 100 = 5000 = $ 1.64

These are known as popularity points and could reach a maximum of 15,000 points in a month

That’s 300 comments within the forum for $4.92. That’s certainly a lot of work there for very little reward don’t you think?

You can also earn points for leaving 80+ word replies on other members opinions, 100 for each reply to a maximum of 5,000 a month.


How You Get Paid?

Depending on which country you are in determines just how you can be paid. There are 3 ways to get paid.

  • Electronic vouchers 

Toluna rewards

Which will be sent to your Toluna account or in some cases directly to your email account.

  • Bank transfer

Check out your country of origin as some allow direct bank transfer whilst others don’t.

  • PayPal

Remember that there will be fees when transferring money through PayPal and to allow up to 4 working days.


Toluna Pros and Cons

This is the part of the review that most people will go straight to without reading all the gory details.

Here I will highlight what I believe to be the positive and negative aspects of becoming a member of Toluna.com, but what I am not finding are many positive reviews in TrustPilot or SiteJabber. You can see for yourself!

Pros

Cons

  • Mobile app

When you are away from your laptop and using the mobile app, I have noticed a number of complaints with the app crashing or throwing you out part way through a survey with everything lost.

  • Not qualified for a survey

This seems to be a problem with many of these survey sites where you can be taking part in a survey for several minutes (in some cases 20 minutes) then all of a sudden the survey will end and you will be told that you didn’t qualify.

I can’t for the life in me understand why this happens because they should know all this before they send you the survey. I guess they just want the survey filled first.

Many are arguing that maybe they still use the data in order to get paid by the client!

Whilst I have seen some survey sites that offer you points as a way of compensation here at Toluna.com this isn’t the case, so I guess you have to grin and bear it.

  • Long wait for  your cash

Another annoying thing is the time you have to wait for your rewards to be redeemed. Anywhere between 2 to 8 weeks depending on the country.

Remember to ensure that everything is filled in correctly otherwise you may lose those points as many members have reported.

  • Very low hourly rate!

These surveys take between 15 and 20 minutes and for this, you are paid anywhere from 15 and 50,000 points which all depends on which client the survey comes from and the length of time it takes.

  • Points expire

If you are like many members who hang onto their points hoping to buy something of value later then remember that those points start to expire after a 12 month period.

Meaning that not all your points will expire at once, for example, if you were rewarded 10,000 points on the 6th June 2018, then only those 10,000 will expire on 6th June 2019.

Not at all happy with this, because to get those points in the first place will have taken many hours, but lose them and Toluna.com will be saving money.

  • Not able to sign back into the website

Within 10 minutes of registering I found that I could not sign back into the site even though I copied and pasted the exact same email and password.

When I tried to recover the password I received no email from Toluna and this wasn’t the 1 time, it was several times and 2 days down the road.

I have received no response to my email either.

  • Survey’s don’t come quick enough

Like many of these survey sites, they work on a first come first served basis, meaning that you have to respond to the emails sent out by Toluna.com as quick as possible otherwise the survey’s fill up.

Sitting around waiting for the odd survey turning up is not my idea of fun!

Many members who come into these survey sites expect to be filling surveys in constantly throughout the day which isn’t the case!


What is Toluna – Final Thoughts!

You will find many people stating that Toluna is a scam but in my eye’s it isn’t and the reason for that is simple. It is free to join and you can make some money albeit in small amounts.

Granted, I wouldn’t think about jacking your full-time job in just yet and that goes with many of these survey sites.

Would I recommend this business? Absolutely not!

Yes, I have tried and tested many of these sites in the past but nowadays I have very little spare time on my hands since I found this training platform where I can now earn real money, but hey, if earning a little cash here and there is what you are looking for then who am I to question it.


Comments

Are you a member of Toluna? What do you think? Are you happy with the service? Thinking of joining? How much time do you spend on surveys? What is the most money you have earned filling in surveys?

I’d love to hear your thoughts about this survey site or why not spread the word and share this information with your friends.

Just leave me a comment below and I will get back to you at my earliest convenience.

Until next time!

What is Survey Junkie and is it a legit way to make some extra cash? Survey Junkie Review 2018

So you’ve come across the advertisements in social media and want to know more; so what is Survey Junkie and is it a legit way to make some extra cash, but are you prepared for those really long days of repetitive mundane tasks?

What is survey junkie
Survey Junkie Login

Everybody has spare time to kill, whether it’s through holidays, after work and in the evenings, between jobs, or at the weekends, and then why not turn that spare time into cash, and earn yourself a few hundred bucks a year filling out surveys or testing products? I mean you can do this whilst watching TV or YouTube videos!

When researching the popular ways to make money online, surveys always seem to come out on top, but you have to check out these sites carefully as many are not worth going anywhere near.

There are vast amounts of research companies out there offering rewards just for you to make opinions on products and services, but not all of them are as legit as they may seem!

It is hard enough sitting for hours filling in questionnaires for the small amount they are offering, only for them to withhold payment or wait until you have completed a survey only to be told that you didn’t qualify. Has this happened to you?

Remember when researching which survey websites to join please make sure you exclude all sites where they are asking for a membership fee. These sites you should stay well away from!

What is Survey Junkie?

Survey Junkie is not actually a real market research website, like Swagbucks

What they do, based on the information that you supplied when signing up, is match you with the actual survey providers (their clients). Which is the same as telephone sales where they would approach a person, get their details and pass it on to a salesman to close the deal?

What this also means, is that your personal details will probably be on their clients’ email lists as well as their own. As long as you are aware of this!

Survey Junkie was launched in June 2012 and part of Blue Media Ventures Inc. and according to their website has over 3,000,000 members.

Is an online platform where you are rewarded for giving your opinions and completing surveys.

Whilst there are different types of surveys to fill in and complete, it is all part of the same thing, market research!

Many companies including major ones like Amazon and Walmart, work alongside companies like Survey Junkie to get valuable feedback and opinions on their products and services, and they pay sites like Survey Junkie for doing this, and a portion of this fee will be passed onto their members for participating in the surveys, by the way of pointsOr that is the gist of it!

I can tell you now that you aren’t going to be fighting to pick up surveys because I joined a few days ago and when I sign into the website I am still getting the message “Uh oh…looks like surveys are not available at this time. Please check back in a couple of hours!” 

Well. I wonder if the mortgage company will be so relaxed when I tell them I’m waiting for some work.


How do I get started with Survey Junkie?

Pretty straightforward here, and there are 3 options as you can see from the image below.

Survey Junkie signup page

What I wouldn’t do is sign-up under your Facebook or Google+ account just to be on the safe side!

You don’t really want people who you know in social media to be pestered with Survey Junkie pop-ups do you,  and I don’t know about you, but I like to keep my personal life private?

Once you have completed this process, they will ask you a serious of questions which allows them to slot you into a certain demographic, to help in the selection process of the surveys that best suits you.

You will be rewarded with 100 points which equate to $1 for registration.


How do I get paid?

Before you can get paid you must have reached the threshold which is 1,000 points and what members tend to do is to cash in as soon as that is reached.

There are 2 options to go down here

You can either redeem those points for eGiftcards or select the PayPal route and get paid in cash which most members end up doing.


Pros and Cons

What is clearly evident here is that you aren’t going to be jacking your job in just yet!

It all depends on just how much you favour your time and whether it could be used in a more constructive way.

Firstly, finding a legit money making opportunity like a survey site can be a nightmare, because there are so many with a large percentage not worthy of trying, but if taking surveys is just to earn a little extra cash, and they can be done whilst doing other things as well, then that’s fine.

Like every company, there is a positive and negative aspect to take into consideration and I have tried to highlight a few below!

Pros

Large following

Survey Junkie has been operating since around 2012 and according to the website has over 3,000,000 members.

100% Free to join and take part in

Very easy to join and become a member with the whole process taking less than 5 minutes.

Low threshold for redeeming points and turning into cash 

You have to reach 1,000 points which equate to $10 before you can redeem those points for either eGiftcards or cash that you can withdraw from PayPal. Other like-minded survey sites are usually a lot higher which means it would take longer to get paid.

Points are active for life

The points that you accrue do not have an expiry date, so you don’t have to worry about cashing them in, but what Survey Junkie does expect, is that you are active at least once in any given 12 monthly period.

Pay-out on time

Normally, the points you earned for completing each survey will be rewarded to your account immediately after.

Good rating according to BBB

According to BBB (Better Business Bureau) which is a consumer website, they have a rating of A+.

Cons

No mobile app available

We are in the 21st century and everybody has a mobile device of sorts so I find it a little strange that there has been no mobile app developed.

Don’t you think it would make sense, and besides wouldn’t that mean that “Survey Junkie” would be getting paid more also? 

You may not qualify

This happens for no reason at all, and when you have taken part in a survey, or more than often when you have completed one. Just think you spent 25 minutes filling a survey in to be told that you didn’t qualify! Mind-numbing stuff! I mean why do they do this? Maybe to slow your progress if at all you are progressing, which I doubt very much.

survey junkie account not verified

Short on Surveys or Activity

When I joined I spent a few days waiting around for access to the survey database and each time I signed in to the app I was met with a message telling me that there were no surveys and to try again in a few hours’ time.

Better be quick when you receive an email indicating you have been selected for a survey.

I received an email from Survey Junkie informing me that there was a survey for me to complete, but when I tried to access this survey I was told that it had been taken. I guess we are all competing for the same surveys!

Accounts getting deleted

There are plenty of complaints regarding member’s accounts getting deleted for no apparent reason, and whilst these facts in a lot of cases can’t be vindicated, it may well be down to a member violating the rules.

Not rewarded for completing a survey

There could be a host of reasons for this happening but it doesn’t look good, especially when you might have spent the last 25 minutes filling in a survey to completion stage, only to be told you didn’t qualify or you didn’t receive points.survey-junkie-review-not-paid

Only available in certain countries

Only open to United States, United Kingdom, Canada and Australia.

Obviously, the clients of Survey Junkie are English speaking and therefore only target English speaking countries.

Lack of the number of surveys

When you register as a new member you are asked to fill in a questionnaire which allows Survey Junkie to be selective in their selection process when it comes to handing out the surveys.

I joined Survey Junkie as of publishing this article 4 days ago and still haven’t been able to access any surveys online, as each time I sign-in I am met with the message

“Uh oh…looks like surveys are not available at this time. Please check back in a couple of hours”

survey-junkie-review-2

I did receive an email 3 days into my membership telling me that I had been selected for a survey and that I had to hurry because it was filling up. Really, well when I tried it was full!


Is Survey Junkie legit and does it work? 

Survey junkie trust pilot reviews

One thing for sure, and that is Survey Junkie is a legit opportunity for you to make a little extra cash online, but that is all you will do, earn a little extra cash!

Some people enjoy filling in surveys and there is nothing wrong about that, but remember that you are going to be spending many hours in front of a screen, but it’s not rocket science and you surely will be able to do other things whilst completing these tasks.

Whilst you will find negative comments on various review sites, there are more than enough positive comments which far outweigh the negatives to convince you that this is a viable business to get involved in.

Remember there are always going to be issues with any business!

Survey Junkie Review 2018 – The Verdict?

As you can see to make a little cash you are going to have to spend quite some time in front of your PC or laptop but if that’s what you already do then why not, as I have been in that position myself in the past.

If doing surveys is just a stop gap, it was with me some time ago now, then why not focus your time in a more efficient way and learn a new skill. You might surprise yourself!

With the ever-expanding Internet approaching 3.8 billion users, and the affiliate marketing industry heading towards an 8 billion dollar business, then wouldn’t affiliate marketing be a good thing to get involved in?

With Google, there are over 65,000 searches every single second, which amounts to over 5.6 billion searches in one day alone, and that’s people searching for literally everything you could possibly think of.

All you have to do is find out what they are searching for, create a website and get it in front of that crowd!

This definitely is not rocket science and everybody can do it!

If you can write emails, do research which we all do then that’s pretty much it, but what I will tell you is that hard work is involved.

Just think 1-2 years from now you could be earning $5,000 – $10,000 a month and that’s a conservative figure!

Sounds good, then check out this article I wrote and see what you think.


Comments 

Since I have participated in online surveys in the past and did make a little money then I have a little experience to put your way, but those days are well and truly gone!

Have you had any bad experiences with online surveys? Are you a member of Survey Junkie and how do you find them?  Are you looking for a way to make money online? I’d like to know!

If you have time then leave a comment and tell me what you thought of the review.

All the best
