At the end where they look for your feedback, always select the 'very poor' in the "amount of reward for the survey time", if everyone does it they might listen

Irish Opinions is NOT a scam. Maybe you have been suckered into paying for a site to do surveys - most of the sites that require that you pay them are scams. You don't really need to be a sucker to work that one out IMO. Irish Opinions do not require people to do this: you do a survey & as soon as you have €10 in your account you can get paid for it, end of. Some people redeem their rewards every time they accumulate €10 & some wait for a larger amount.

Stating your opinion as fact without providing or being able to provide some sort of proof is a bit pointless, as your opinion is simply that: your opinion!

I don't do half the surveys they send, but get paid for each & every one that I do.

Click here for proof

As for Pigsback surveys they are few & far between. The last one they sent me was for 50 piggypoints. Considering it would have taken at least 25minutes to do & that in reward terms it would have paid less than 50cent I wouldn't bother.

So far this year I have received vouchers to the value of €50 from Irish Opinions which I have gladly spent. I have about €16 in my account yet to be redeemed. If that makes me a sucker in your book, so be it

In fairness it does take ages for them to send out payment and sometimes the surveys are very boring and repetitive and i also dont agree with the ones where you fill out a load of answers only to be told you are not suitable!

I did the one on Food today, took me about 15 minutes, loads of specific questions related to the answers that i gave, then the usual "reached target number" rubbish.

I am fuming as i had answer loads and i no longer believe that they do not use the answers given after it supposedly closes-especially after the detailled answers i had to give today.

There was a survey the other day all about your sexual habbits. All this very personal information, like how often do you have sex, do you cheat on your spouse, how often do you mastrubate etc all for a measly 50 cent.

Like anyone will give truthful info for 50 cent.

The recession has hit condom companies hard

I've given up on doing the survey's TBH because so many of the surveys are crap. I fill in the rating on them after I do a crap one and it comes up again a few months later.

The target number thing is bollocks IMO too. If you start the survey, you should get to finish it otherwise it looks bad for the website.

i've got a 7 euro balance , with them at the minute but I think you cant get anything for less than €10, I know you can block the cookie from the site but after this I think I'd rather let them keep it and i'll keep my opinions to myself from now on

I has €9.20 with about €4 pending. So I might just wait until it makes the €10 mark and then leave.
I certainly won't be completing anymore surveys for them.
