    They sent an email yesterday and today about a new survey, 5euro for 15mins!!! now you have to play around with it a bit for them to accept you but unlike previous surveys you can go back and start again as often as it takes!


  • Registered Users Posts: 293 ✭✭barochoc


    I have €13.50 with €7.50 pending. !!!!!

    Tip: Lie through you teeth... seriously!!!! Normally I wouldn't but I got so p'd off with them sending me emails to do the survey then to be told I don't meet criteria.

    Go into your profile & show more interest in almost evertything (This gets you more survey offers)..... also if you don't meet criteria just click on it again & then lie or guess... works for me!!!

    I got €5 the other day for bulling about being the IT manager for my company & that I make all the decisions about IT purchases & Telecoms also. It took about 6-7 atempts to get past the criteria brick wall & then just pure bull from there on.... it took about 10min to complete the survey!

    Am I wrong to do this???

    Finally the missing voucher arrived circa 1 month ago by registered letter.
    So maybe something in their system had gone wrong in sending the voucher or it got lost in the post. I just do not understand why they were not forecoming but tried to cover it up with come excuses that were not going anywhere.

    Not sure how long they are pending. I just do the surveys when I see them lol. Just to pass the time really.

    Would it be alright to assume you'll always have something pending to stop you claiming your vouchers?


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,598 ✭✭✭Saint_Mel


    So long as you've built up €10 you can click the Claim reward link and
    get that amount sent out in a voucher.

    Did anyone else get the survey yesterday about drinks? I was at least 12 or 13 pages into the survey, having asked detailed questions about the brands of drinks I recognised, and recent drinks advertising I could recall when they came back with 'sorry, we have enough responses and the survey is closed'.

    I'm getting very suspicious that this is a technique to avoid paying.

    I agree with you. They're getting questions answered that they need and at the end it's 'fuck off, you're not getting paid mwahahaha'.

    I've done a few surveys too in the last couple of months and my credits are still pending. I'm not sure if I'll keep going with it..

    We're all in this psy-op together.🤨

    I only got this survey this evening and have only just completed it about 5 mins ago. Once what's in pending is "processed" I should have €43.00 worth of Tesco vouchers. I've been doing it for a number of years with just the odd survey to start and in the last few months they've been coming through more regularly. I haven't tried claiming yet. I was hoping to do so once it got to €50 but I think I'll just redeem them in €10 a time as I've my suspicions about the whole thing.

    I've actually accumulated €30 of HMV vouchers, but true, recently I noticed that after a few questions I almost always get the message 'you don't qualify' -- result: I've stopped bothering.

    But I can still go and spend my vouchers on DVDs or what... so not a scam for me!

    :D

    The scam seems to be the number of surveys they send you never reaches the €10 euro mark. Since I signed up I have only offered 4 surveys that made a total of €7.. Anyone else noticed this?

    Did you take the time to log in on www.irishopinions.com and fill out the survey questions that help them understand you better?

    I have to say that I was ignoring several surveys because I had the same problem, in fact just this morning Ive managed to knock out €3 so for the first time since starting with the website ive gotten €10, despite the fact that the payment is still pending.

    When it goes through Ill be interested to see the payment they give me, having said that, €10 isnt a lot for at least 2 years service


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 637 ✭✭✭Lizzykins


    I've only just gone over the 10 euro mark and have credits outstanding for ages now. Maybe Irish Opinions have to get paid by the companies they are doing the surveys for before they pay us!

    Sent them an email today saying wondering when my pending credits will be credited to my account as I'd like to claim my first ever voucher with your service so Ill just wait and see what happens, I dont intend to be left waiting since there are a couple of things I could get with my voucher on Amazon and after all this time I'm entitled!

    I've done that the other day too, all adds up to €48.00

    No reply, yet.

    I was going to let mine build up as i get surveys fairly regularly bit I decided to get them so will be interesting to see how long it takes!!


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,062 ✭✭✭dlambirl


    hey

    i've just recieved my first €10 voucher.it took a while to accumulate but in my eyes it was handy voucher, the odd survey now and again


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,808 ✭✭✭Ste.phen


    I've been a member since late 2005.
    I mostly answer their surveys (though have ignored a few outright because the reward was too low) and I've got €38.65 in my account, i'm just gonna let it pile up until I need some tesco vouchers :P


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,262 ✭✭✭di11on


    Anyone work out how long it takes to complete a survey and work out how much you are being paid and hour?

    I wonder does it compete with the minimum wage?


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,062 ✭✭✭dlambirl


    i doubt that!!!

    Not an alternative way to make a living - thats for sure.

    I am a bit annoyed with the service though:
    They ask me a load of questions before deciding I'm
    a. Not eligible
    b. too late - they already have enough applicants
    Lads - ffs - you know b. immediately, before I fill out the info, and I told you enough info for you to figure out if I am a. when I subscribed. Did ye forget? Don't ye believe me? Why do ye need to hear that I'm a 73 year old female tea drinking lesbian Sinn Feiner as a pre-requisite to every story?

    Also the quality of the surveys are a bit crap - recent one had a multichoice: do you come from Dublin, Galway or Donegal? No sh*t.


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,739 ✭✭✭mneylon


    I got vouchers from them before Christmas.

    I don't seem to qualify for a lot of the surveys though ...

    Was that the drinks one?

    I said I was from Dublin and tried to continue, but got so bored with the questions I eventually gave up.

    I'm signed up with Irish Opinions about a year now and in that time I have only got a tenner out of them. Close enough to getting another tenner soon. I used to do the postal surveys as well, that was until I started to take the piss out of them. They used to give a 25eur dunnes voucher every month for recieving letters in the post and logging them up online. 25eur for about 4 hours work a month was taking the piss. So I emailed them to complain :D I wanted 40 eur a month from them. Truth be told I never heard from them again. I wasn't too bothered about it TBH.

    I used to work for Millward Brown when I was a student. I love taking the piss out of survey companies :D

    Not trying to spam but did anyone ever hear of a site called A.W.Surveys??

    they give you $4 per survey and when you reach 75$ they credit your paypal account...im currenty at $27 but there are no surveys available :(

    Something that always really annoys me is how people brand paid online surveys as scams. Ive been a member of many paid surveys companies for many years and have earnt my fair share of money and paypal aswell as online gift certificates for lots of online stores.
    It seems that people really arnt paying attention to what they sign upto.
    Many survey companies take a certain time period before you are paid. Sometimes its days or even weeks. So as soon as a few hours is up they say oh i havent been paid for doing that survey.
    If people continue to pick survey companies that have dodgey names like survey monkey or 30 dollar days then its their own fault. Try using the ones with legitimate names, do your homework on the paid survey company before you join.
    Ive had nothing but smooth sailing with the companies im with and have been with for many years. This one has a list of about 7 paid surveys sites [HTML]<a href="http://www.techagesite.com/Surveys page1.htm&quot;&gt;Paid surveys</a>[/HTML]
