Google Opinion Rewards Hack! Is it Legit?

Did you know there are many ways that you can make money with mobile apps, and Google Opinion Rewards is just one of them?

Two other options are Swagbucks and Paid Viewpoint. I use both of these with great success.

​Anyhow I was wondering do you have th​ese apps installed on your mobile device?

​​If you don’t have​ Google Opinion app on your phone right now; then you should stop what you’re doing and download it immediately.

Why because for one it’s free and for two it’s one of the easiest ways to earn small change.

Google Opinion Rewards

What is Google Opinion Rewards?

It’s a free mobile app that can be downloaded from the Google play store. You can earn money answering small market research questions.

I’ve never completed a survey that took longer than 2-minutes. It appears that Google cares about your time.

Regardless, I’ve been using Google Opinion Rewards for 4 years now, and I love this little survey app.

I must admit irrespective of what anyone tells you; you’re not going to make a lot of money with any mobile app.

So, I’m sure you’ve arrived on this page to find out what the Google Opinion Rewards unlimited surveys hack is all about.

Everyone’s talking about it, right?

Well, I’m sorry to be the one to deliver the bad news but, there is no hack, and I’ll explain more in the next few paragraphs.

By the way, I took a survey today, the image below is the balance that I’m now working ​with.

Is Google Opinion Rewards Legit?

Since you’re curious about the Google Opinion Rewards hack, you may be wondering if this app is even legit. Of course, it is.

It’s one of Google’s many free products.

Plus, as you can see in the image above and below, they’re legit.

Anyhow, you can download the app from the Google play store for free.

The surveys are quick, painless, and to the point.

Topics that Google Opinion Rewards sends you include almost everything from polls to asking you about your last location to giving your opinion about a certain product.

Google finds your opinions valuable, and they use your responses to improve on products and services.

How Does Google Opinion Rewards Work?

As mentioned earlier, there is no hack to this app. At least I don’t consider it a hack. Google Opinion Rewards works just like any other survey site.

If you’ve used other survey sites in the past, then you’ll understand that surveys come uncontrollably.

Meaning you can not control when you’ll receive the next survey.

For example, I receive surveys from Google more frequently than my family members that leave the house daily. I on the other hand, barely leave the house, yet I receive more surveys.

Either way, surveys are sent to you by mobile notification only. There is no way to cheat or hack into Google Opinion Rewards to get unlimited surveys or free credits.

On the other hand, there is a way to try and increase your opportunity of receiving more surveys. But, even then it’s still out of your control.

I’ll give you the steps shortly on how to hack Google Opinion Rewards, if that’s what you want to call it.

Back to how G.O.R. works.

As, I mentioned earlier each survey is sent by notification only.

You could receive a survey or two throughout the week. Then suddenly it’ll feel like Google has forgotten about your opinions.

Each survey that you receive has the potential  to earn you anywhere from $0.10 up to $1.00. It’s not anything to phone home about, but again, the surveys only take a few seconds to complete.

On good days, I can receive two or more surveys depending on where I’m located.

Then there’s days where I go nowhere and still receive surveys, which brings me back to the hack.

How To Hack Google Opinion Rewards And Increase Your Chances of Making More Money?

By the way, the surveys are sent to you based on your GPS. Yes, your location history plays apart too. I use my GPS every single time I leave the house. So your Google Maps, you’ll want to make sure you keep it updated.

Head over to your mobile settings > look for Security & lock screen.

Depending on your mobile device, you may need to find your settings first, and then type in the word “Privacy”.

From there the Security & Lock Screen should appear.

Scroll down until you find Privacy > Location > and set location to on.

Note: It has been reported that some people don’t receive as many surveys due to enabling the battery optimization option. If you disable the battery optimization option, you could increase your chances of more surveys.

Nevertheless, with the pay rate that Google Opinion Rewards offers you​; and the short time you spend completing a survey, I can’t say that this app is terrible.

​By the way, I earned $0.14 today within 1 minute, not too bad.

How To Redeem Google Opinion Rewards?

Although, I’ve been using Google Opinion Rewards since January 2015, and completed 517 surveys, while earning myself a cool $143.67 in total.

I’ve just recently learned that the money you make from Google Rewards could be transferred to a PayPal account for a cash deposit.

How cool is that?

However, there’s  a catch. You must at least have a $2.00 balance.

Another bummer is, your Google Opinion Rewards and PayPal email address must be the same to transfer your credit.

In my case neither are the same.

If your PayPal email address is not the same, as your Google Opinion Rewards then there is a solution.

You’ll need to accept a minimum one-time payment within 30 days, by associating your Google Opinion Rewards account and your PayPal account.

After that, any earned money should auto transfer as long as you have a $2.00 account balance accumulated.

Sounds a bit confusing? Yeah, I know…

For further assistance all you’ll have to do is follow the instructions on the Google and PayPal website.

Another way to redeem your rewards is by using Google play credit, which is what I am very familiar with.

On the app, whenever you’re ready to purchase, movies, books, games, apps, or anything there is text that reads “spend your play credit.”

Click it.

As long as you have enough funds, and google play credit is a checkout option, you’ll be able to spend your earned credits for whatever your heart desires.

How Can You Spend Your Earned Credits?

According to Google Opinion Rewards website, you’ll be able to redeem your credit for purchasing apps, movies, games, TV shows, magazines or music.

Although I didn’t find what I’m going to disclose on their website; I’ll  share with you exactly how I use my google credit money.

Once I have saved up enough credits, I purchase a newly released movie on YouTube. We call it a families movie night.

The newly released movies on YouTube are a bit pricey, so keep in mind you it doesn’t have to be a new release.

It can be any movie available on YouTube.

All you need to do is, of course, have the app downloaded on your mobile device with accumulated credits.

  • Go to YouTube find the movie you want.
  • Then click on the option, “Rent or Purchase Movie.”
  • Once you have done that you should be asked. Would you like to use your Google Play credit balance or a credit card?
  • If you have enough credits for the movie you selected, then select pay with your Google Play Credits.
  • That’s it you’re done! Your movie now can be viewed on your big screen TV.

My Final Opinion Of Google Opinion Rewards

Google Opinion Rewards is one of the first mobile apps that I learned to make money with, and I do recommend them. The surveys are fast and easy.

However, if you’re looking to make a full-time income, then this is not the way to go.

Personally, I would like to believe my time, and your time is more valuable than the money Google Opinion Rewards offers.

Besides, I’ve used this app for a total of 52 months. Made $143.67 in total which equates to $2.76 per month. That wouldn’t give you any type of life changing income.

So, would I still recommend them?  Yes but, only to make small change.

I don’t know about you but, I like being more productive with my time, and money.

By the way, did you download the Google Opinion Rewards App? How do you like it? How much have you earned? Feel free to share some cool ways that you’ve spent your Google Opinion Rewards Money.

I would love to hear from you.

  1. Good Morning Kisha,

    I can understand to do Google Surveys on your mobile phone is fun and it makes you earn a little commission. 

    As these surveys really only take a minute or two and you are not flooded with it I think it is a good idea to download this app.

    As there are so many scams out there on the internet it is good to hear about something which is legit. It will not make your rich but it is a nice thing to do on the side. You have the choice between cash or paying for films etc, not a bad deal I must say. Thank you for this information.

    Regards, Taetske

    • Hi Taetske,

      I agree, it won’t make you a lot but, it is something that can be done on the side within minutes. So, it’s easy change per se, which can add up over time. I enjoy using my Google Opinion Rewards, because, I actually don’t have to work for the money.  

      Anyhow, thanks for stopping by. It was great to hear from you!

  2. Dear La’Kisha,

    Thanks a lot for the very thorough and comprehensive review post.

    Recently one of my friend shared me with an invite link to Google Opinion Rewards and I always prefer to do some research before joining any program because of the increased number of online scams. Your review post is a time saver for me and I got helpful insights.

    It’s great news to know that this is not a scam and sharing from your own experience adds more value to this post. You are correct, the earnings are very less but as you mentioned when we are in queue or waiting for something we can use this app. I loved how easy the review makes it for readers and no additional research needed. You left no stone up-turned in explaining how it all works.

    Google Opinion Rewards is on my list!

    Warm Regards,


    • Hi Paul,

      I am glad to hear that you do your research before making a final decision, that is great! There are so many scams online, that now a days, it should almost be a requirement to do research before moving forward.

      Yes, Google Opinion Rewards, won’t replace a job but, it can help cover small ends, when the balance has equaled to a sufficient amount. Don’t get me wrong it could take some time but, it’s still worth a try. It’s free and quick surveys.

      Above all, I’m just glad to have answered all your questions with this article. Thanks a lot for all for your kind words. Have an awesome day!

  3. Very interesting write up on this post about google opinion rewards. I really would love to plunge into this but then the pay is just to meagre for me. Less than $5 a month. When. I saw the hack, I was delighted actually but I never thought it was a lie. Thanks for shedding lights on this. I think I would recommend this app to my high school cousin, maybe she could get some cash through this.

    • You’re right, it is less than $5.00 a month. Unfortunately, you wouldn’t even be able to buy a lunch. However, I agree your cousin may find some use in this app. You know, every little bit counts. It’s easy and quick so, she may enjoy it. 

  4. I have seen the Google Rewards hack apk on several websites, but I couldn’t believe Google would have such a security vulnerability. I’m always leery of things like that, thanks for setting the record straight. I have the app, but I haven’t made anywhere near the money you have made with it. Pretty cool.

    • Hi Michael,

      No, Google Opinion Rewards doesn’t have a hack. Apparently, there was a rumor that they did. It works by tracking your GPS movements. Of course, for them to track you properly, you’ll have to turn on your GPS features.

      I usually answer questions as soon as I get them. I also spend the money but, never let the balance hit zero. This may help increase your earnings, with them but, of course it’s not a guarantee only a suggestion.

      Thanks again, Michael for stopping by!

  5. Oops! I had thought this would fetch me quite a lot of money but unknowingly to me, it was a lie. I actually thought the hack was real and I got very excited. I’m a self sponsored college student and I like to look for means to generate more free cash to help stabilise myself financially. Irrespective, I would still get involved with this atleast I can make little cash from this too.

    • Hi Isaac,

      I’m sorry to disappoint, you I hope the title didn’t mislead you. Unfortunately, Google opinion Rewards, won’t fetch you a jack pot but, it can help out with small things while you’re in college. The best part is, the surveys only take two minutes or less. So, you’ll still have plenty of time to study.

      The reality is, no online survey will pay you decent money, you only have a few choices to earn extra money, while you’re in college. You can work part time from home, or you can work full-time. It’s up to you.

      You can also freelance or find a non-phone job. Your last option is to start a blog. I recommend, Wealthy Affiliate because, it’s like a university for fraction of the cost. It’ll teach you everything you need to know about internet and affiliate marketing.

  6. Hey there,

    You really can’t make much money with survey sites, but you the money you earn can be invested elsewhere (Google or Facebook Ads, a business, stocks or elsewhere) and earn more money. 

    One Question: Are Google Opinion Rewards available in every country? Or is it just the big North American and European countries?



    • Hi Marios,

      You’re absolutely, right! You can’t earn much with Google Opinion Rewards. However, you can use the money elsewhere such business. I believe in re-investing your money into your business so, that you can scale it a lot faster.

      I also use Paid Viewpoint, there another survey site that is quick and easy to use. I do the same take that money and re-invest.

      Anyhow, Google opinion is available in several countries and here is the listing. You can either have funds sent to your PayPal account or you can use the funds right from your phone.

      Australia Austria Brazil Canada Denmark France Germany India Italy Japan Mexico Netherlands Norway Singapore Spain Sweden Switzerland Turkey United Kingdom United States

      I hope this helped…

      Have an awesome day…

  7. Hi, La’Kisha.

    I got a bit sidetracked and whilst the Google Option Rewards looked to be a good little money earner, I ended up on your about page, lol.

    I totally agree with you that our time is worth more than Google is paying us and after all, we all have to make a liveable earning, right?

    I was fascinated by the program that you’ve got as your top recommendation.

    Is it as good as you say?

    Can I expect to make a good income if I put a solid amount, say 30 hours per week – into my home business?

    … And, how long do you think it will take for me to see some passive income rolling into my bank account?

    Looking forward to your reply, Jeff.

    • Hi Jeff,

      I’m glad you were able to learn more about me, and yes, we all have to make a livable wage.

      Although, I recommend Google Opinion Rewards, I don’t recommend making a living off of it.

      Anyhow, Wealthy Affiliate is an excellent program. I’m not saying this because, I’m a member. I’m saying this because, WA has unlimited training and they taught me everything, I know today.

      After reviewing hundreds, of make money online products, I learned that other companies charge you upsell after upsell, to receive in-depth training. Well, not at WA!

      They also provide you with all your tools that you need to succeed online. Such as a website, hosting, live interactive support, and the list goes on.

      Jeff, well the answer to your question on how long it will take for you to make a passive income, is a common question that is asked often and I understand your concerns.

      30 hours is sufficient. We have members who have put in fewer hours, and still succeed with full time incomes.

      However, “when” is a big question But the answer is no different from a brick and mortar, it all depends.

      With WA you’ll be creating an online business from scratch.

      The training inside the platform delivers results. However, it does take patience, time, and lots of learning.

      There are steps that you need to learn before the passive income comes rolling into your bank account. Therefore all of this can take time. Such as you need to build a foundation, learn to drive traffic, and then learn to monetize.

      The key is to learn the right steps, which WA will teach you the right steps on how to make money online. Hope this all makes sense.

      Anyhow, let’s get started, you have nothing to lose.By the way put your credit card away, Jeff you won’t need it. 

  8. Hi Kisha

    Sounds like death by a million cuts. Wealth by a billion clicks. 🙂

    I had to do the math a bit deeper…so…if you work 8-hr days, that averages to $0.017 per hour. Imagine what a forced minimum wage in THIS industry would do.

    I’m sorry…you have to admit…this is a bit comical.

    With WA, you can earn $0.50 per review, after a certain minimum.



    • Hi, Dave

      I enjoyed your comment. I fully agree with you, 17 cents an hour is not worth it, especially, if you’re looking for a full-time income.

      However, Google Opinion Rewards, is an easy way to earn side cash. Anyhow, I’m so glad that this wage isn’t a forced income because, it would be horrible. I don’t think anyone would survive.

      Anyhow, Wealthy Affiliate does have awesome ways to earn income, so, if I had a choice between the two. I definitely choose Wealthy Affiliate.
