Your Opinions can change the world.
American Consumer Opinion Panel, also known as ACOP has been operating online since 1996 which would make one of the first online survey sites. American Consumer Opinion Panel is open to members worldwide with members in the US, Canada, Germany, France and the United Kingdom getting the most survey opportunities. You must be 14 years of age or older to become a Member of the American Consumer Opinion Panel and it should also be noted American Consumer Opinion allows only one Member per household.
American Consumer Opinion will email you when they have a survey available, you are unable to log into the website to complete a survey at American Consumer Opinion.
Whenever you complete a survey, you will receive between 100 to 5,000 Points, depending on the length of survey. For screen outs you will receive 5 to 50 Points.
Survey Points can appear as Pending for up to 6-8 weeks once they are posted to your member account. This occurs for two reasons: this survey has not yet closed and finalized, or your earned Points are currently being processed for final approval.
Once you have earned 1,000 Points, you can redeem your points, PayPal is available in most countries.
One Point is equivalent to one penny. Therefore, for every 100 Points, the value is equal to one dollar. You must have a 1,000-Point minimum balance to redeem your points.
Their is also a price draw for referring friends where for each friend you refer you will get a entry into a monthly drawing to receive 5,000 Points.
American Consumer Opinion is a well established website, I like how you only need to earn 1000 points = $10 for a reward. I think the referral program could be improved though as most other survey sites give you points for referring your friends not prize draw entries. Its good how you get a few points if you get screened out of a survey though.
