Opinion Outpost is a survey company that I love. Seriously. I cannot recommend it enough, especially if you find yourself with free time on your hands.

I was first introduced to Opinion Outpost when I received an invitation via email. After doing a little research, I confirmed that they were reputable. Sign up was easy. I completed several profile questionnaires; these are used to match you with relevant survey opportunities.
The same week, I started receiving survey invitations. Upon completion and approval of the surveys, my account was funded with points. Within a month, I had completed a few surveys and had accrued 180 points—worth $18—in my account. I had only spent a few hours total completing surveys that month, so it was well worth the time.
How much does Opinion Outpost pay? How much can you earn?
Each survey is given a point value. For each survey, you'll see the amount of time that it should take to complete. Most surveys range between 5 and 50 points. In general, the higher the point value, the longer the survey will take to complete. Surveys worth 50 points take around 35 to 45 minutes of your time.
Since joining, I've earned over $100. I have never had any issues redeeming my points. The most I've earned in one week was $20.
There are various payment options available. You can choose from PayPal, gift cards, checks, and even charity contributions. Each redemption option has a minimum threshold that you must meet before checking out. For example, PayPal requires at least 100 points (equal to $10) and Amazon Gift Card Credits require that you have 50 points (equal to $5).
Earning potential depend on how many surveys you qualify for and how often you complete them. The average survey is worth 15 points, for which the monetary value is $1.50. If you complete 10 of these per week, you have the potential to earn an extra $60 per month. Of course, you're never guaranteed to receive surveys, so you shouldn't rely on Opinion Outpost as your primary source of income.
How do I qualify for surveys?
Before you begin a survey, you will complete an eligibility screener. Sometimes these screeners take five to ten minutes to complete. It's worth noting that you may spend time on a screener only to find out that you don't qualify to take the survey. Sometimes, a survey will ask you qualifying questions, too, and if you don't meet the criteria, you will be returned to the Opinion Outpost home page.
But don't fret! Even if you don't qualify, you have the option to participate in several "games" that give you the chance to win extra points or earn entries for their $10,000 cash prize drawing, held periodically.
