Opinion OutPost Changing Minimum Cashout?

There has been some talk that Opinion Outpost may be changing the minimum cashout amount. Other member have stated when they logged in they got the following message in their members area:

No more waiting !!

Now you may redeem your Opinion Points
for Amazon.com® Gift Card* claim codes with a minimum of 10 Opinion Points ($1).
The claim code will be delivered instantly for immediate redemption on Amazon.com

The Amazon.com® website is the place to find and discover anything you want to buy online at a great price. Amazon.com's huge selection includes products in Books, Electronics, Music, MP3 Downloads, DVD, Home & Garden, Apparel & Accessories, Beauty, and more.
Another member showed that they have now set up the rewards section to look something like this, at least the text part of it:
Redemption Options for Opinion Points

>> Request an Amazon.com® Gift Card* claim code
* Minimum is 10 Opinion Points or $1
* The claim code will be delivered instantly for immediate redemption on Amazon.com

Amazon.com My Claim Codes >>>

>> Request a Check !
* Minimum is 150 Opinion Points or $15
* Please allow 4-8 weeks for processing and delivery

My Checks >>>
When I logged in I did see either of what was stated above, it was just the normal minimum 50 Opinion Points to cash out for $5 page. The page itself was redone a little bit but no mention of Amazon gift card codes or the increase to cash out at 150 points ($15). Maybe they are slowing integrating it into the system? Have any of you gotten this message in your members area? What do you think about them adding Amazon and increasing the check amount to $15?

Viewpoint Forum Temporarily Suspends Referral Program

Viewpoint Forum has temporarily suspended their referral program. I am not sure of the exact date that they suspended the program but when I tried to send a couple invitations out the following message appeared:

"Sorry. The referral program has temporarily been suspended."

I even checked in the FAQs section on their website and it says the same thing under the question "Can I refer a friend to participate in Viewpoint Forum?"

They do not state when the referral program will be active again. If you still want to email me your first and last name & email address for a Viewpoint Forum invitation you can do so, this way when the referral program does start back up I will email you invites as soon as I am aware of it. Or you can just wait until they active the program again and send me the info then.

Greenfield Online Changes Up Survey Invites

Over the past couple months Greenfield Online has been changing up the look of the survey invitations send via email. The survey invite that they usually send is pretty basic, their are some graphics but nothing too stunning. Then at the end of March they started sending invites with quotes, facts and recipes below the information about the survey. Today I just noticed they are now sending out another different looking email. Not sure what they are trying to do, maybe get opinions from members on which one they prefer? Even so, it doesn't change the fact that they don't have many well paying surveys lately - no matter how cool looking or informational the survey invite is. If you don't know what these survey invitations look like, here are a couple pictures to give you an idea:

If I had to choose my favorite based on design I would say the last one is nice, its straight to the point and easy to read. The first one is kinda boring and outdated, second one is okay but is kinda bulky and makes you scroll more. What do you think about Greenfield changing their survey invitation templates?

MomSelect is introducing a Sneak Peek Site Testing program. Read more about it below!

By taking part in our Sneak Peek Site Testing program, your kids will be given free access to a new virtual world, not yet available to the public. Focused on wildlife and the animal kingdom, the online game is not only entertaining but teaches positive lessons about cooperation and conservation. Moms will feel comfortable with the safe and secure nature of the online world and the educational aspect of the activities, while kids will love rescuing and caring for the baby animals they encounter during their quests.

If your child would be interested in being part of the first group of kids to experience this exciting website, we'll send you a unique access code. The code will be valid during the entire site sneak peek testing period (approximately 4 weeks) and your child will be given special benefits and access within the site.

After testing out the site, we ask that you fill out a brief online survey with your thoughts regarding the site. Your feedback, along with the thoughts of your children, will directly impact the final product launch. And as a thank you for your insights, we'll be holding a drawing among survey respondents - 3 lucky moms and their kids will each win a $50 Target gift card!

By participating in the sneak peek testing program, we ask that you:
Visit the site with your child to get a sense of the website
Encourage your child to play as much as possible during the sneak peek testing period
Fill out the online survey within the requested time period*

To be eligible for this program, you must have at least one child in the 7-12 age range.

If your child would be interested in being part of the first group of kids to experience this exciting virtual world, please fill in the fields and answer the questions below.

We will be in touch the week of April 6th with more details regarding the timing of the program and the free access code.
