Advantages: Easy to use and can be linked to your email address to get surveys.
Disadvantages: Some surveys can be quite dull and repetitive
Valued Opinions is a website where you are able to take part in online surveys about different things such as technology, financial products, food and drink and personal care (along with many other categories). It is an excellent way to earn some extra cash, only redeemable at certain places including the following:
Marks and Spencers
You can also choose to donate your money to charity which is a feature I have not yet used but many members do this.
Sometimes you do not qualify for surveys which can get frustrating at times and some surveys can take some time. You answer questions which create your personal profile which defines the types of surveys you get sent to your email address. When you do qualify for surveys you can earn, usually a minimum of 50p and some go as high as £5 depending on the surveys. The ones where you get a lot of money for take a lot longer to complete (E.g. 45mins) or you get sent a sample of something that you try out for a specified amount of time and then fill in a questionnaire at the end of the period.
Some of the negatives about this website include the fact that some surveys get boring after just ticking boxes for half an hour. In addition to this, you can also get annoyed when you don't qualify for surveys or the survey may have already closed (the date they are available to is shown on the email invite). It can also take a long time to reach the £10 minimum required to claim a voucher.
This website is good because it is an easy way to get some money for things on websites (Amazon) or high street shops (Topshop etc.). It is a very simple and easy website to use as the invites can be sent to your email address and there is also a downloadable add on to your desktop where it tells you when you have a new survey without you having to check your emails. Over my entire time on this website I have claimed £145 worth of vouchers, mainly for amazon when I purchase books.
I would fully recommend this website to everybody as it is good to get money just for ticking a few boxes on a screen.
Summary: Can be boring at times but most definitely worth the rewards
