Our site is also easier to navigate, allowing you to browse your available surveys and rewards balance with ease; fully mobile responsive – allowing you to take surveys and update your profile on the go; and more rewarding as both of these factors make redeeming rewards quicker and simpler than before.

Valued Opinions is a market research panel specialising in paid online surveys, which is owned by Research Now, a global leader in digital panel research. Our members have all opted in to join the panel, to take surveys and earn rewards which can be exchanged for vouchers from top brands when the threshold of $10 is reached.
Once you become a member of Valued Opinions, you will be invited to take online surveys. These surveys will be sent to you via an email or will appear on your member dashboard. By clicking the survey link within the email or the “Start Survey” button on your dashboard, you will be taken to the online survey where you can fill in your responses. These surveys are usually paid between $1and $5, although sometimes we will send you short surveys which help us to get to know you better, and are, as such, unpaid. However, they allow us to keep updating your profile so that we can keep sending you relevant surveys to your specific interests.

Market researchers are interested in your opinions. We help them by providing them with your views on issues related to their clients' needs via surveys. For this reason we charge researchers for collecting the opinions of our members who are likely to be customers of their products and services. Our members' views and opinions are obviously very important in this process and since market researchers are willing to pay for this information we pass some of that payment directly on to you in the form of reward currency!

Yes, this Valued Opinions panel is only available to residents of Australia.
Sometimes we will email you with a short questionnaire to see if you fit the bill for a particular research project. These short questionnaires only take a matter of seconds to complete. For example, we may ask if you have a DVD player, if we are looking for owners' views on certain types of DVD players. We don't credit your Valued Opinions account for completing these; however, you may be pre-selected for a fully paid survey as a result.
The minimum age to register is 15, unfortunately this is a legal requirement and we are unable to accept any members beneath that age limit.

We will always email you if there is a new survey or profiling questionnaire to take. Please ensure that your email provider is not blocking emails from Valued Opinions. You can also see you available surveys on the dashboard page when you log in to your account.
Your chance to be invited to a survey depends on a number of factors, such as the number and types of surveys we are conducting at any one time and the amount of profiling information we have for you, allowing us to send you the most relevant surveys to you. Please see our Terms & Conditions for more information.
Surveys will vary in length, but will typically take less than 15 or 20 minutes to complete. Each e-mailed survey invite will tell you how long it should take, and the survey deadline to respond.
If you are unable to gain access to our survey please try the following:
We recommend that you use the latest version of popular browsers like Internet Explorer, Chrome and Firefox to take surveys as some of them may not be compatible with older browsers.
Unfortunately, once you submit an answer on a survey, you cannot change it. We do this to protect the integrity and accuracy of the data we collect.
We try to ask such questions as gender, age, location at the start of each survey because we look for different types of people to answer surveys. You may not qualify for a survey for many different reasons based around your answers to the first few questions (demographic criteria and/or consumer habits). We make sure that we place questions that could disqualify our panellists from the survey at the beginning.
You may be also stopped from completing a survey because we had reached the desired number of respondents. The system closes the survey automatically once the desired number of respondents has been reached.
We recommend that you keep your profile up to date, as this will increase your chances of getting invited to surveys that are appropriate for you.
Please note that we will not pass on any of the information you have given to us in the course of uncompleted surveys to our clients.
The majority of surveys are open for a few days. However, some surveys are more popular than others and close quickly if the quota is reached sooner than the proposed deadline.
We always try to limit the number of panellists we invite so that the panellists we do invite have a fair chance of answering the survey.
Unfortunately we cannot cancel electronic vouchers as they are emailed to you as soon as you request them and the reward amount is deducted from your account.
In general you will be rewarded by a credit to your Valued Opinions account for every survey you complete.
The rewards work like this:
If we identify that a respondent is not honest in his/her approach to research, for example by providing meaningless answers or trying to do multiple completions of the same survey, we cannot reward them. However, this occurs very rarely and is only used as a means to stop the few dishonest people from spoiling the opportunity for everyone else.
When you have successfully completed a survey, your account should be credited automatically, except for complex studies such as diary studies and focus groups which may take up to 6 weeks.
To check a list of all reward options please visit our rewards page .
To redeem your reward, you need to log in to your Valued Opinions account. If your balance is $10 or above you are eligible to redeem a reward.
Badges are awarded to all members who have activated their account, and who continue to take surveys regularly, fill out their survey profile, and redeem rewards.
There are five levels, Bronze for beginners, Silver, Gold, Platinum and our highest level, Diamond.
At every level there are key achievements (known as badges) to be won depending on your survey activity.
The membership levels are related to aspects of your membership, focusing on activities like taking surveys and earning rewards. Just because you’ve been a member for ten years does not guarantee you Diamond status!
You can level up by unlocking all the badges compatible with the next level above your own. For example, if you’re a Bronze member, you need to complete all four available badges relating to Silver membership in order to level up and become a Silver member.
You can achieve badges for different levels above your own – such as if you have 100% profile, you’ll have a Diamond status badge for profiling only – but you cannot reach Diamond level until you’ve completed all four badges required to be a Diamond status member.
Bronze members are only just getting started. To reach Bronze status, all you have to do is sign up and activate your account.
Silver is the first step on the ladder. To reach Silver status, members must:
Gold members are becoming regular survey takers. To reach Gold, members must:
Platinum members are active and regular survey takers who have redeemed more than one reward and have an almost complete survey profile.
To reach Platinum status, members must:
Diamond members have reached the top level. They have a complete survey profile, have completed fifty surveys (or more), maintain regular survey activity and have redeemed multiple rewards.
To reach Diamond status, members must:
To maintain your badge status, you must ensure that you continue to take surveys regularly – at least once a week. If you do not maintain your survey activity, your badge for consecutive surveys over one, two, three or four weeks will be lost and you’ll drop to the next level down.
Similarly you must keep your profile updated – some profilers expire over time, such as technology, electronics and gadgets and automotive – so if you see your profile drop in percentage since you last logged in, check back and complete any profilers that are less than 100% complete.
