With over 10 million installs, this is a popular app, but are you using its full potential? Could You Make More Money With Google Opinion Rewards?
How does Google Opinion Rewards work?
Before we look at how to get more Google Opinion Rewards and how to trick Google into giving you more money, we need to look at how Google Opinion Rewards work. Maybe you’ve never used it before, or maybe you used it once and forgot about it.
Google Opinion Rewards isn’t limited to Android users. If you have an iPhone, you can also install it and take advantage of the same paid surveys. Note that if you use an iPhone, your PayPal account will be credited, while Android users will credit the rewards to their Google account.
After starting Google Opinion Rewards, you’ll need to log into your usual Google account. You should then be given a preliminary “test” survey, partly to make sure you understand your part in this mutually beneficial relationship and partly to assess your demographics.
Google Opinion Rewards asks you based on your recent shopping experiences. If you’ve been shopping you should be able to provide an answer.
It takes about 10 seconds to complete surveys and usually ends with pennies being added to your account. Over the course of a few weeks, you may end up with enough credit to spend on the Play Store.

Now that we know how it works, let’s see how to trigger Google rewards and make more money.
Enable location services for Google Opinion Rewards
While you may receive questions about online purchases, many of the Google Opinion Rewards surveys are related to your recent trips. With Location Services turned on in Android, you have a better chance of getting polls asking where you’ve gone.
But why the interest?
In most cases, the information is collected in order to improve Google Maps. Make sure the correct location setting is selected by pressing. to open Settings> Lock screen & security, scroll to Privacy, and select Location.
To ensure Use location is set to on, then scroll down to Advanced and confirm Google location accuracy is also set to on.
This uses GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and cellular networks to get your location and is the best option if you want to make money with Google Opinion Rewards. Note that it is also a privacy minefield.
What’s the Best Location for Google Opinion Rewards?
This is difficult to answer as it largely depends on other aspects of your activity.
However, if you live and be active in a city, you will get more Google Reward Surveys than in the country. There’s more to do in and around a city, with more locations for your phone to check-in. As a result, having an active work, social, and shopping life in a big city will get you more surveys in Google Opinion Rewards.
As you know, more surveys mean more income potential.
Update the Google Opinion Rewards app
In addition to having location services turned on, you also need to make sure that the app is up to date.
Changes to the survey system may not be compatible with older versions of Google Opinion Rewards. So having the latest version of the app installed is a huge benefit.
To make sure the app is up to date, open the Play Store app on your phone, find the menu, and select Settings. Tap Generally then Update apps automatically and make sure the setting is enabled. Use Only via WiFi for the best results.
How to get more Google Opinion Rewards surveys
It would be great to have a ton of polls every day, but that won’t happen. However, there are a few things you can do to make sure you complete as many surveys as possible.
Check the app daily and make sure you’ve turned on notifications for Google Opinion Rewards.
If you respond to surveys quickly, you will get more surveys with Google Rewards.
Be feminine: It seems that women with high expenses who shop regularly have more opportunities to generate rewards with the Google Reward Opinions.
Regular shopping sprees in well-known stores: Sitting around at home is not a way to get surveys from Google.
Tell the truth: The app is used for the occasional “fake” survey to filter out bad answers. Trick questions can be asked after you’ve gone to a place you haven’t visited or participated in an activity that you haven’t visited. The wrong questions are easy to spot, but if you answer fraudulently, you will make less money in the long run.
Getting out and about is worth your Google Play balance so make sure you check out the app, respond truthfully and promptly!
Get Google Opinion Rewards for Christmas
It shouldn’t really come as a surprise, but it’s worth noting: Google Opinion Rewards will earn you more with Google Opinion Rewards in the last quarter of the year, as you typically shop around the holiday season.
Companies that hire Google to survey their users want to learn about their shopping habits. So it makes sense that you try to collect this information – thanks to Google’s “Instant Gratification” surveys – during the period in which you shop the most.
So if you want to generate credits for the Play Store with Google Opinion Rewards, you should install, update and check it regularly in the run-up to Christmas.
Earn more Google Opinion Rewards by watching videos
Another way Google finds opinions is by sending you videos to watch and rate. That means you need to be ready to watch the videos as they air.
Typically these are YouTube Clips that Google uses to measure your interest. It’s almost always about finding recommendations for you, not advertising (although sometimes it does).
All you have to do is watch the video, confirm it is playing correctly, and then rate it.
Once you do this, your reward will be added to your balance.
Don’t let your rewards run out!
It’s a nice feeling to see the balance on your Play Store account go up. Every time you fill out a survey, your updated account balance will be shown.
Google Opinion Rewards credit will expire after 12 months. So you have to keep using the app and spend the credit. If you don’t, you have wasted your time and effort.
A great way to prevent this from happening is to keep a list of the apps and games that you want to buy. You can do this by marking them for later by clicking Add to Wishlist Button. Items in the wish list can be viewed by clicking on them My wishlist at GooglePlay.
