Payment Information

survey paymentsAmerican Consumer Opinion (ACOP) awards points for taking surveys, which can be redeemed for cash or Tango Gift Cards. Every point you earn with ACOP is equal to the equivalent of 1 penny.

Most surveys take around 10 minutes to complete and there are opportunities to do at home product testing.

With only $10.00 worth of points in your account (the equivalent of 1000 points), you can request a PayPal payment. Payments are made in US dollars. Alternatively, you may request a cheque (that is awarded in Canadian dollars).

Tango Gift CardGet a Tango Gift Card
ACOP recently added a new option for cashing out points – the Tango Gift Card. Use your Tango card to get digital gift cards from Starbucks, Amazon, iTunes, Nike, Home Depot, and many others. You can essentially exchange the value of your Tango card for the value of one or multiple retailer gift cards. They can also be used to make donations to different charities, and any unused value can be redeemed for cash.

In a nutshell, the Tango Card provides more flexibility in a single gift card that allows recipients to choose and then stagger the proceeds of a gift card across various retailers or charities.

Survey Frequency
ACOP performs hundreds of surveys a year and polls people from all over the world. On average, you will receive a study every few weeks to complete. The average survey length is only 10 minutes, and the questions are typically very easy to answer. You can also expect to receive a “screener” (a short survey) every month or so.

Survey Values
Screeners (short surveys) are worth between 10-50 points.
Long surveys will always provide an incentive – points, a free product to test, cash, a check, or a gift). Incentives range in value from 100 to 5,000 Points per survey or research project, depending upon the time it takes.

Product Testing
ACOP also offers the opportunity to evaluate products. If you are selected, you will be able to evaluate new products and new product ideas as well as optimizing existing products and packaging designs.
