What Is a Survey Site?

Survey sites are marketing websites where you can sign up to have online surveys for certain products or services sent to you. Normally, for each survey you complete, you get a certain number of points which you can then redeem for cash or prizes. Some survey sites give you cash instead of points. While taking online surveys is not the kind of thing that can provide a steady income (or even a decent second income), they can help you make a little extra spending money.

How I Signed Up

I signed up on Que Opinas through the survey site BigSpot (the one with the TV commercials). Que Opinas is geared exclusively towards a Hispanic/Latino demographic, so unless you're Hispanic or a Spanish speaker, I wouldn't recommend it. However, I won't judge the site based on that, but rather on the quality of the surveys, the site itself, the rewards and the ease of redeeming.

How the Points Work

When I first signed up for the site, I started getting lots of survey links sent to my e-mail. Most surveys are actually hosted offsite by Que Opinas's marketing clients. The rewards are given out in point form, with an average survey taking about 20 minutes and earning you about 40-50 points upon successful completion. For perspective, you need at least 1,500 points to cash out, with that amount of points equaling $30. Every four or five surveys, they'll send you one that's worth 75 or 100 points. It took me close to a month to have 1,500 points, which seems about average for most of the survey sites I've used.

What Are the Surveys Like?

The surveys largely deal with the subjects people usually get surveyed on in these sites: food, drinks and mobile phones. Despite being a "Hispanic" survey site, Que Opinas's surveys almost always give you a choice between taking it in English or Spanish. You can get "screened out" of a survey part of the way into it if the software determines you're not part of the demographic the survey is looking for. You don't get partial points if you get kicked out of a survey.

Getting Paid

Once I had the minimum amount of points, I clicked the "Redeem" button to get my first $30. They do tell you upfront that it takes 4-6 weeks to get your money, whether you have it sent to a PayPal account or have a check mailed to you, although I'm sure the physical check option takes longer. The website does not show you the status of your redemption or how much longer you have until you get paid. However, if you have questions, you can e-mail their customer service; they usually respond within a couple of days and have been pretty helpful.

About a month later, I was beginning to lose hope, until I received an e-mail from PayPal telling me about the impending deposit. Huzzah! I got a survey site to actually pay me real money! It may have been the hardest $30 I ever made, but I was glad to get it. Not surprisingly, the minimum points required to redeem went up from 1,500 to 2,000 as soon as I did my first redemption. About a month later, I was able to hit 2,000 points (mostly through luck) and was able to redeem again, this time for $40. I've redeemed again several times since then, and it's always for 2,000 points ($40). They still pay about a month after redemption, but sometimes it takes less time . . . sometimes it takes longer. I have also noticed in the last few months that their surveys are almost all for low point amounts now (40-60 points each on average). But Que Opinas still remains a reliable way to make a little extra cash.

Pros and Cons

The Good

  • Actually pays real money
  • They send you lots of surveys

The Bad

  • No consolation points
  • Absent customer service
  • Takes forever to get paid
  • No variety as far as rewards
  • Redemption minimums go up as you redeem
  • Exclusive to Hispanics

Final Verdict

Overall, these folks are honest and you can get paid if you follow their guidelines. I'd say Que Opinas is legit.

      I like filling these surveys it actually kills some of my boredom. It works and it is legit. Some surveys take long to wrap up but it's easy. You get payed by check but got to wait from 4-6 weeks.
