Another voucher from Valued Opinions

by Dan on February 23, 2007

I’ve received my second £10 Tesco Voucher from Valued Opinions today. So I have now earnt a total of £20 from Valued Opinions in shopping vouchers. Just be warned, it does take about 4-6 weeks for the voucher to arrive, so don’t panic if you don’t receive something the next day!

I used Valued Opinions quite happily for a number of months. Recently, they have blocked my account, claiming I failed one or more quality control tests.

I believe this is an excuse not to pay for information they have already received from me as I have always used my account as honestly and accurately as was humanly possible, given that some questions are ambiguously worded.

I believe they are acting dishonestly. They continue to spam my mailbox despite my demands to stop.

I have spent lots of time doing surveys on Valued Opinions but I keep getting screened out half way through!!!!! I think this is a scam. They should be able to screen you after a few questions, not after 12 or more questions, which so often happens. I am sure they get the information they need from you and then say “sorry you have not qualified” just so they don’t have to pay you. Why else do they ask so many questions first. Once I completed 50% of the survey before being told “sorry, we have reached the desired number of participants”!!!!
Surely they should know at the start how many participants they need? But they collected lots of info from me anyway :(

Last week one of their surveys developed a technical fault and I had already spent 20 minutes doing it! I was furious.

I agree with the poster who says Valued Opinions should not need to let you get half-way throuugh a survey before telling you you are unsuitable. This has happened to me umpteen times, and I too think it is a gimmick they use so they don’t have to pay you.

They are now also taking 43 days to send out vouchers instead of the promised time scale of within 28 days. They blame the company who sends out the vouchers, but I don’t believe them!

The ‘screening out half-way through’ issue isn’t a problem with Valued Opinions, it’s more to do with the market research agencies who are running the surveys – Valued Opinions just provide the online hosting and don’t normally have any control over the survey content.

If a survey is bad, take a note of the market research agency who produced it and complain to them directly. I used to work for one of these places scripting the survey from ‘paper’ version to ‘electronic’ version, and often the survey provided would be badly structured in the initial stage – it’s usually an oversight if it gets online as such problems should be removed during scripting. Usually all the screener and ‘quota group’ questions will be right at the start of the survey, but occasionally they do appear after a whole section (usually this is for a longer and more complicated survey).

Data obtained from incomplete surveys is not used (at least it wasn’t by the company I worked for), as it generally has important pieces of information missing, so no worries on that score.

Can’t speak about the tardiness of voucher delivery – that IS an issue to raise with Valued Opinions :)
