AA/Opinion Place

It looks as if opinion place no longer gives AA miles for taking a survey. When you go to opinion place through http://www.aolaadvantage.com you now get a message that says you will earn up to $4.50 credit on your AOL bill for completing a survey. I qualified for a two minute survey about movies and earned zero.

If you'll run a search on this topic, there are a couple of threads about this in the past few weeks.

If I recall correctly, the message you are getting has to do with logging onto Opinion Place from an AOL browser as opposed to an ourside URL.

I just got AA miles for a survey last week.

If you log in to Opinion Place while using your AOL browser, you will not earn miles. However, if you open up another browser (I use Internet Explorer) you can take the survey and you will still earn miles.

About 3/4's of the time I try to do an Opinion Place survey, I'm told that I don't qualify and get no points for about 10 minutes work. I'm about to quit trying and stick to munching Kellogg's ceraels!

I got an email from them 2 days ago to take a survey (only took one once.) After answering all kinds of qualifying questions, got message that I already took "that" survey. How many different surveys do they have? One?

Jakester, what you describe has happened to me several times, but only after a browser crash and I try to go in again.
There are many surveys, but your chance of "qualifying" is usually under 50%.

I just took that movie survey also. Got 150 AA miles. Went back with husbands account no. and got a survey for Boston Market side dishes. Got another 150 miles. I always seem to qualify. It seems that if they ask you howmany times you have done somthing in the past month, thats what the survey will be about, so if you haven't done whatever it is, you don't qualify.

A "good person" is a 40-45 years old man or woman with 2 boys 12 to 16 years and 100,000 to 125,000 $ income.
You get only a few questions on movies and 150 miles.

I have never had a problem (except for a period of 3 weeks). Female, single, no kids, 30...I am almost always picked to complete a survey.

I go to mileageworkshop.com and access AOL AAdvantage through that site. So far no problem getting 150 miles at a pop.

I must be hitting some profile...

EVERY time I go to Opinion Place, I get to take yet another survey on alcoholic beverages.

I took one survey in January. I tried again yesterday. I put in my adv# and a mesage came back that I already took the survey. Never even got to pre qualify.
And as I stated above, they sent me an email the other day urging me to take a survey.
HUH???

After answering the initial questions - no survey for me today. But it said I could return after 7 days for another survey. Previously this used to be 14 days.
