What Members are Saying About American Consumer Opinion
Members are very happy with the amount of money earned for each survey however, most members were disappointed with the amount of surveys they received. Many members who have been with the company for over a year were only receiving on average one survey per month.
If you’re looking for a little extra money each month American Consumer Opinion could work well for you. However, based on the number of surveys members have been receiving, don’t expect to earn a part-time income or anything significant from American Consumer Opinion.
