What It Is
Google Opinion Rewards is a somewhat underrated app that pays you for answering quick surveys.
Google pays directly in to your Google Play Store balance for every survey you complete.
What It Isn’t
This is not a way to make a living. It will not replace your job. In fact, you are likely to only make a few pence a day on average. The main limitation is how often Google sends you surveys to complete.
What Google Says It Is
How It Works
Google uses the app for market research, service feedback and even YouTube comment moderation. Instead of paying large groups of employees to fact check things like business opening times and confirming spam post reports on YouTube, Google outsources some of this workload to users of the Google Opinion Rewards app.
All the surveys Google sends to you are short and typically completed in less than a minute.
The surveys are all spam free and will never require you to download shady applications or visit similarly shady websites to earn your commission. Although, they may ask you about stores/businesses you have recently visited and payment method used while visiting. Sometimes they will even ask you to send a photo of a receipt. Of course, you are under no obligation to provide any of this information. They will pay you, regardless. However, I assume less information or poor quality information will lead to smaller payouts (and perhaps even less frequent surveys).
As long as you complete the quick survey, Google will credit your Play Store balance instantly. Most surveys pay anywhere between 6p and 60p. The average payment for completing a survey is approximately 20p.
You can use your balance to buy games from Stadia or the Google Play Store. You can also use your balance as partial payment towards certain purchases too, effectively working as a considerable discount.
Where To Download The Google Opinion Rewards App
What To Do After Installing The App
That’s it – wait.
Soon enough, Google will send you a notification stating that “your opinion matters” (so ensure you have notifications enabled!).
Opening the notification will take you to your first survey. Usually, the questions are multiple choice, therefore, require no additional input. However, some questions will ask you to elaborate on your answers. Do your best to answer it as clearly as possible.
That’s it. You have completed you first survey.[wpdiscuz-feedback id=”q47x9flklg” question=”Please leave a feedback on this” opened=”0″]How much did you get paid for your first survey? [/wpdiscuz-feedback] < Click to comment.
The payments seem a little underwhelming at first. But as I said this isn’t a get rich scheme! Although, you’ll be surprised how quickly those pennies will turn in to £’s.
Google Opinion Rewards Hacks
There is no hack for Google Opinion Rewards.
Don’t believe sites that promise to increase the number of Surveys you get by download an app *cough* virus *cough*. Also, don’t believe sites that promise to tell you how to increase the number of surveys you get after you “just click this ad link”. You’ll just find yourself going round and round and round and round…..etc.
There is a high chance you will end up stressed, annoyed, downloading malware and wasting your time if you even slightly entertain any of these ideas. Consider yourself warned!
How To Get More Surveys On Google Opinion Rewards
- Use Google services (Youtube, Google Search, Play Store..etc)
- Use Google Pay when paying for your shopping
- Enable Google Location Services and go to shops more often
- Ensure the Rewards app isn’t being affected by battery saving settings on your phone
- Accept and complete any survey offers in a timely manner
- Be accurate, concise and candid with your answers
Ultimately, the Opinion Rewards app isn’t going to make you rich overnight, or even buy you that £75 triple-A, Ultimate Edition Stadia game you so badly want. Although, after some time, you may be able to earn a nice little chunk of money off. Or, perhaps, buy yourself one of the cheaper titles, such as Doom 64, UNO® or Reigns.
Don’t forget, you’re not just limited to buying Stadia games; you can use Google Play Credit to buy practically anything on the Google Play Store
