I totally agree with some other comments... you repeatedly get screened out after completing over one third of the survey. The additional 50 pence they charge when you 'cash in' is a rip off as the voucher codes are sent via email. I've also noticed that I get offered surveys I have already entered and stupidly when attempted, as didn't realise, see exactly what they are doing.. let's pretend we have loads but actually these surveys are being recycled so an absolute waste of time.

All the bad reviews you see on this site appears to be true. After having done so many reviews over the years properly, all of a sudden I would receive a suspension saying that my responses are
(i) not been accurate and
(ii) not been attentive.
When I query where have I been not accurate, they could not provide me any evidence. I suspect this is how they save themselves from paying out to clients who have done surveys.
Very disappointing survey site. Not Recommended. Steven.

A very good survey site with respectable rewards
Review by Tholen Slabada1 month ago
This site was one of a few k signed up for around June or so
It all started well , was regular getting invites and for the whole I could complete most of the surveys.
THEN any invitations just stopped coming
I double checked the site and my details
Could not find anything ....
So I decided to take £15 worth of my 16and a bit rewards to get myself a Amazon gift voucher ....
It took nearly three and half weeks to get any response and only after I had emailed asking why there was no surveys and why I could not claim my voucher
They had told me my account had been terminated for some reason
So if I had not had asked , I would not know any different.
I take the surveys seriously and give my honest answers and time to filling them in.
It is appalling the way they do not take , take no responsibility and do not give a proper reason for their decision and you have to ask them ....
They take your answers for a while then just toss you aside

I have been a member of Valued Opinions for over 11 years and they have had their ups and downs but generally have been a good survey site. As stated by others it has become harder in the last year to actually qualify for surveys despite them regularly "updating" their information about you to ensure you receive surveys that match.
However this dramatically ended about three weeks ago when I clicked on a survey link that had been e-mailed to me by them and received a 404 "page could not be found" error. The page also stated they were aware of the problem and were working on solving the problem shortly. I wonder how long shortly is as you still get the same message when clicking on survey invite links.
If you go to their website a similar thing happens, you attempt to log in and are then taken to a page which states "not found".
I have attempted to reach out to Valued Opinions:
Via Facebook Messenger they answer "slowly" but are not reading my description of the problems and are not providing any constructive assistance.
Via the telephone. They state that they are open Mon-Fri 10am to 5:30pm. They may well be but they do not answer the telephone. Whichever number you phone them on you are either sent immediately to voicemail or get a message saying that you are in a queue and then immediately sent to voicemail.
I have ended up writing a letter of complaint to them but hold out little hope of getting a sensible reply.
If people reading this are still considering using Valued Opinions then I can only say "user beware".
6 Sep 2019 Update:
So Valued Opinions ask me to contact them via their website. I had not mentioned this above but I had already attempted to do this.
11 Sep 2019 Update:
The Valued Opinions website will only work if you have Flash installed on your computer. Less than 10% of internet websites still use Flash, most have moved to HTML5.
Flash is a deprecated program that has huge security issues.
Starting from Chrome 76 and Firefox 69, Flash is disabled by default and browsers do not even show a prompt to activate Flash content.

When I first joined Valued Opinions some years ago, I found them to be excellent (particularly compared to other survey sites). However, over the last 12/18 months I've found that you spend more time qualifying whether you are eligible for the survey than actually completing the survey. Plus, they now deduct a fee to exchange for your reward vouchers and they have reduced the number of retailers for whom they issue vouchers. I have decided to stop using the stie

A good website when everything works and you can earn good rewards, however if there are issues, particularly with higher paying surveys which take longer to pay out , it can be a nightmare trying to sort things out with the customer service, English is not their first language and they seem unable to understand what you are telling them, you can spend weeks sending emails back and forth trying to explain the issue.

Review by Qwadwo1 month ago
As others have said, going downhill rapidly. I've been a panel member with them for many years, and it used to be good, but not these days. If you have a problem, their "support" is useless, simply sending boiler-plate replies that contain little or nothing relevant to the problem you contacted them about..
Latest thing seems to be frequently getting screened out when you are more than 50% of the way through a survey - I note that others have mentioned this too.
And - a £15.00 Amazon e-voucher costs you £15.50. The additional 50p is just a rip off from them - the voucher does not cost them £15.50, and there are no postage costs or similar.

Absolutely wouldn’t bother with anymore they use to be one of the best but have been sitting with 50p in my account for weeks, don’t even get past first base to not qualify. Sadly have drastically gone downhill

TWO WEEKS SINCE I WAS SENT A SURVEY
"You have no available surveys at this time. Complete your survey profile for more opportunities. "
My profile has been complete for several weeks.
My advice to anyone signing up to this site is to earn enough to claim a gift card or voucher then, when you've received it, quit and sign up to other sites.
Otherwise what will happen is you'll build up a certain amount of money and, when you near enough to get another gift card, they stop sending you surveys.
In summary, it's good to start with but after a while it's a waste of time.
Review by Chekou2 months ago
I like how your reward is shown in monetary values rather than points. There are plenty of opportunities to take part in surveys and the rewards are ample for the time spent on them. It's simple to redeem your rewards too.
Review by Ndoch2 months ago
Great way to spend some free time. A chance to give an honest opinion and be rewarded for it! Over the years I've saved up enough points to help out at Christmas. Whats not to like about that?
Review by Tomoo Sigurmundsson2 months ago
Can’t get onto a survey despite spending 30 mins answering mini surveys to get accepted onto one. Call me sceptical but I’m £1 off getting a £10 reward. I find the questions that are validation for a survey are surveys in their own right but not getting rewarded for it. Waste of time

Another week and after telling me 2 weeks ago they'd like to investigate I have heard nothing from them.
£5.68 yesterday alone on an alternate site, was a good day but £15 a week on average so far. Was angry at first with VO, now I am thankful as its given me the opportunity to find better alternatives.

I enjoy getting the surveys & taking part as they seem more relevant & interesting for me. Rewards good but surveys interesting just as important.
