Looking for a way to make some decent money in your spare time? Then take a look at this OneOpinion review to see if it’s the survey site for you.
It’s official, there are more survey sites about than you can shake a stick at and I have joined many of them. I stumbled across OneOpinion after a random google search. Taking a look at some reviews gave some mixed messages, so I thought I would try it for myself.
What is OneOpinion?
OneOpinion is a survey site that pays you for your opinion. You are rewarded with points every time you complete a survey and these points can be exchanged for cash or vouchers.
Take from their website:

Is OneOpinion Legitimate?
OneOpinion is based in Connecticut in the USA and belongs to a company called Dynata. Dynata serves nearly 6,000 market research, media and advertising agencies across the world.
OneOpinion generally has plenty of surveys available, so a good opportunity to earn. They also have one of the best resolution services I have seen. Usually, if you have a problem with a survey not paying out, you have to submit a form and wait several weeks. But with OneOpinion, you just need to visit the chatbot, type in “survey didn’t credit” and they generally pay-up there and then! This has happened several times to me.
If you are screened out of a survey, you still receive some points but this is limited to 5 times per day and is only worth 5 pence each time.
OneOpinion is also a great gateway to other earning opportunities. I joined a small online focus group talking about bathrooms. For an hour’s work, I earned £30. I also joined up to a product testing site through OneOpinion. I tested a brand new vacuum cleaner and was paid £75 in Amazon vouchers for my trouble!
Pay isn’t great for surveys. Many of them pay only around 40 pence for 10 minutes which is less than many of my favourite sites. There is no referral scheme, so no opportunity to earn a bit extra through your friends.
The payment method is also a pain. You can withdraw your earnings when you reach £25 as a prepaid credit card either as a digital or physical version (the physical card costs £5). Now, this is where I have an issue. I opted for a digital card, but it’s a real chore trying to spend an exact £25. Most stores don’t allow you to use different payment methods, so if your order comes to £25.01, you can’t use your digital card. If your shopping comes to £24, there’s a good chance you’ll never get to spend that £1 remaining.
In the end, I used my money to buy gift cards from Amazon so I didn’t lose anything.
How much can you earn with OneOpinion?
As I said above, pay isn’t great. Not all pay as badly as 40 pence for 10 minutes, so expect to earn around £5 per hour. However, that doesn’t include potential earning opportunities from other linked sites, which can increase your money considerably. When you withdraw earnings, it usually takes around 3 days before you receive your digital card. Physical cards will take longer.
A word of warning
Twice, I stopped receiving surveys from OneOpinion. I contacted them and they asked where I was completing surveys from and whether I was using a VPN (I wasn’t). After a 3rd time, they told me that my account was permanently blocked. After I sent them a typically British, strongly worded email, they reinstated my account. Touch wood, I haven’t had any problems since.
My OneOpinion review conclusion
There are quite a few negative points to this site, more than I would like. But with that said, I keep coming back to it. Thanks to OneOpinion, I managed to earn £75 plus a £75 Amazon gift voucher in just over 6 weeks. This is certainly a site to keep an eye on if you want to earn money consistently over the year.Sign up to OneOpinion >>
