American Consumer Opinion has been around since 1986 and so is a very well established survey site. As its name suggests this site is based in America. It is not limited to US membership however, and according to the website….
“the panel currently includes over eight million men, women, and children throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, Latin America, and Asia”.
It is one of very few survey sites that are open to members worldwide.
The site now uses a points system and cash out level is just 1000 which is equivalent to $10. Surveys tend to offer 100 – 500 points and you also get 10 points if you screen out.
American Consumer Opinion also now offers a claim via paypal option. This helps to overcome the issue of $ cheques being sent out to non US members.
My Personal Opinion and Experiences
This survey site has gone through a few changes recently. If you had a look before and not signed up you might want to reconsider.
I have been a member for several years, and didn’t get many surveys before. I am based in the UK, and I now get surveys I qualify for on a regular basis.
The only issue I have with this site is there is quite a delay before credits are applied to your account. This is due to the survey still being open usually, and can be as long as 45 days. Pending payments are shown in your account, so you do know when you have completed a survey. You are also provided with a date you can expect a payment due to clear.
Once you start using the site on a regular basis the delay in payment credits is not an issue and you can make withdrawals as frequently as you like really 😉
Overall I find this a very professional and well run site. Certainly worth trying for yourself, but do take the payment delay into account if you are going to Join American Consumer Opinion.
