Your chance to be invited to a survey depends on several factors, such as the number and types of surveys we are conducting at any one time and also your background information. We will always email you if there is a new survey to take. Please ensure that we are on your whitelist, or that your email provider isn’t blocking emails from Rewards for Opinions.How long will it take to complete a survey?

The majority of our surveys are open for a few days as we seek panelists who are a good fit. However, some surveys are more popular than others and close quickly. We always try to limit the number of panelists we invite so that the panelists we do invite have a fair chance of answering the survey.

Market researchers are often looking for the opinion of a very specific group of people; for example, users of a particular brand or product. Questions will be asked as part of each survey to check whether it is relevant to you. If it is not relevant to you, you will be "screened out" with a message explaining that you haven’t qualified. While this is a normal part of market research, the more we know about you, the more we can send you relevant surveys. We recommend ensuring that your survey profile is complete and that you update it frequently. If you do get screened out, you will still receive three (3) Rapid Rewards points for attempting the survey, and any data received from non-completed surveys is discarded.Why do you ask me questions you already know the answer to?
When you sign up for Rewards for Opinions, we ask you to complete some personal demographic questions (such as age, gender and ZIP code) which enable us to better target surveys for you.
Often these questions are also asked at the beginning of surveys, which are created by our clients. Rewards for Opinions doesn't share your personal information with anyone (even our clients), which is why you need to complete these questions on many of the surveys you receive. These questions also ensure that the information we are passing to clients is as current as possible, so thank you for your patience in answering these questions.I’ve received a survey invite, but when I click through there are no surveys available. Why?
If you have participated in a lot of surveys in the last day or two, you might find that we have run out of suitable surveys for you. Additionally, the surveys you are invited to may have already reached their quota of respondents by the time you clicked through. If you click through and find that this is the case, check back the next day, and we should have more available.

Badges are awarded to members who activate their account, 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) awarded for your survey activity.
The membership levels are related to aspects of your membership, focusing on activities like taking surveys and redeeming rewards.How do I level up?
You can level up by unlocking all the achievements available at your current level in a 365 day period. For example, if you’re a Bronze member, you need to complete all the available badges relating to Bronze membership in order to level up and become a Silver member.
You can achieve badges for different levels above your own – for example, if you have completed 100% of your survey profile, you’ll get a Platinum status badge for that section – but you cannot reach Diamond level until you’ve achieved all badges within Platinum.What is a Bronze member?
Bronze members are just getting started. To reach Bronze status, all you have to do is sign up and activate your account.What is a Silver member?
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 almost completed their 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) and maintain regular survey activity.

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 survey profile updated – some sections 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 sections within your survey profile that are less than 100% complete.
