pounds and pence not points

Advantages: great rewards, pounds and pence not points, easy to use
Disadvantages: can be up to 3 months pending, slow website
I have signed up to a few different survey sites but i think valued opinions is one of the easiest to use and it pays well.
Ease of use- They email you when a survey becomes available, I probably get at least one survey invite a day. You then simply click on the link it sends you and it takes you straight to the survey. For every survey you do you get money, usually you get a pound but sometimes you get 50p for shorter surveys, at the start of the survey it will tell you the length and how much it pays. I particularly like valued opinions because it does not use points, they tell you exactly how much you will be paid and aren't having to work out a complicated points system. The surveys are usually very easy to do and don't use a complicate format, when you finish the survey you have the option to tell them your views on it and if it was an acceptable length for the reward One thing that does annoy me about them is you don't get your money straight away, it can take up to three months to clear before it is added to your balance. There is the possibility that you will be screened out but I have found that this happens far less with valued opinions than it does with other survey companies. When you have reached £10 you can withdraw your money in the form of a voucher that they send in the post, you can pick out of a few useful places which voucher you want.
Rewards- I think valued opinions pays well, i reached the £10 after about three weeks and did about 1 survey a day so its not really going to make you a millionaire but every little helps. As I said before its really clear how much they are going to pay you so its completely up to you whether you want to participate in a survey or not.
Site navigation- The website is easy to use you can login to see if there are any surveys available however they do email you so there's not really any need. You can also see your rewards statement and it shows rewards that are still pending. The site can be a little slow and when i try and login at college it will not move off the login screen however at home it is ok i guess it just depends on your pc.
Overall I would highly recommend valued opinions to anyone who wants to make a few extra pounds.
Summary: possibly one of the best survey companies
