The more they know about what customers and citizens think, the easier it is for them to improve and adapt.How often will I be asked to take surveys?

When participating in surveys, we ask that you please give careful consideration to every question you answer.

(Read our Terms & Conditions for further information).Will I be penalized if I do not complete my survey?
No - You can respond to as many or as few of the survey invitations you receive. However, the more surveys you take, the more Mileage Plan Miles you earn!How will I know that I have surveys to complete?
We will send you an email invitation when a new survey is available. From that invitation, you will be able to access and complete the survey. You can also see your available surveys from your member dashboard when you log in to your account.Why haven't I received any surveys?
Your chance to be invited to a survey depends on several factors, such as the number and types of surveys we are conducting at any one time and your background information.
We will always email you if there is a new survey to take. Please ensure that we are on your whitelist, or that your email provider isn’t blocking emails from The Opinion Terminal.How long will it take to complete a survey?
Surveys vary in length, but typically take 10 to 15 minutes to complete. Each survey invitation will provide an estimated completion time, the survey deadline to respond, and the corresponding Mileage Plan Miles that will be awarded for completion.Why can't I open surveys?
Not all internet providers allow users to click on links within their email. If you are unable to gain access to our survey, try the following:
Copy and paste the link from your email into the browser’s URL and press enter. This will take you directly to the correct page.
Ensure that you copy the entire web address into the browser as sometimes the link can spread over two lines.
Make sure when you copy the link it does not contain any line breaks, as this will also stop the link from working.I realized I picked the wrong answer. Can I go back and change my reply?
Once you submit an answer on a survey, you are not allowed to change your answer. We do this to protect the survey data.
We realize there are times when a panelist makes an honest mistake and clicks on the wrong button, but unfortunately, we cannot go back and change our data.Why is the survey now closed?
The majority of our surveys are open for a few days as we seek panelists who are a good fit. However, some surveys are more popular than others and close quickly.
We always try to limit the number of panelists we invite so that the panelists we do invite have a fair chance of answering the survey. We cannot always predict how popular a survey may be and sometimes surveys unexpectedly close quickly. We apologize in advance if this rare occurrence happens to you.Can you resend me the survey invite?
We can only distribute the links to the surveys once.I received an error message, what should I do?
If this happens, there may be a technical problem. You can try and access the survey again later from the survey invitation email. If there is a general error with the survey, it may be resent to you at a later date. If it happened at a late stage in the survey, contact us, providing as much information about the survey as possible: the survey number, link from the invitation email or the topic, reward amount, and date of the survey so that we may identify the survey and assist you.Can I get someone else to complete my surveys for me if I am away?
No - Once you have registered with The Opinion Terminal panel, you should complete the surveys so you don’t lose out on future surveys or get flagged for possible questionable answers. Your family and friends are welcome to join The Opinion Terminal panel. Each panel member will require a unique email address and their own Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan account number. All registrations are also subject to our data quality checks.Is there any extra software I need on my computer to complete surveys?

While it is not required that you download Flash Player in advance, doing so may save you time later.Why was I unable to complete a survey?
Market researchers are often looking for the opinion of a very specific group of people; for example, users of a particular brand or product. Questions will be asked as part of each survey to check whether it is relevant to you. If it is not relevant to you, you will be "screened out" with a message explaining that you haven’t qualified. While this is a normal part of market research, the more we know about you, the more we can send you relevant surveys. We recommend ensuring that your survey profile is complete and that you update it frequently. If you do get screened out, you will still receive five (5) Mileage Plan Miles for attempting the survey, and any data received from non-completed surveys is discarded.Why do you ask me questions you already know the answer to?
When you sign up for The Opinion Terminal, we ask you to complete some personal demographic questions (such as age, gender and ZIP code) which enable us to find better surveys for you.
Often these questions are also asked at the beginning of surveys, which are created by our clients. The Opinion Terminal doesn't share your personal information with anyone (even our clients), which is why you need to complete these questions on many of the surveys you receive. These questions also ensure that the information we are passing to clients is as current as possible, so thank you for your patience in answering these questions.I’ve received a survey invite, but when I click through there are no surveys available. Why?
If you have participated in a lot of surveys in the last day or two, you might find that we have run out of suitable surveys for you. Additionally, the surveys you are invited to may have already reached their quota of respondents by the time you clicked through. If you click through and find that this is the case, check back the next day, and we should have more available.Can you mail the surveys to me or conduct them over the phone?
Unfortunately, there is no other way to take part in these online surveys, you need to complete them online.

Badges are awarded to members who activate their account, continue to take surveys regularly, fill out their survey profile, and earn Mileage Plan™ Miles.
There are five levels, Bronze for beginners, Silver, Gold, Platinum and our highest level, Diamond.
At every level there are key achievements (known as badges) awarded for your survey activity.
The membership levels are related to aspects of your membership, focusing on activities like taking surveys and earning Mileage Plan™ miles.How do I level up?
You can level up by unlocking all the achievements available at your current level in a 365 day period. For example, if you’re a Bronze member, you need to complete all the available badges relating to Bronze membership in order to level up and become a Silver member.
You can achieve badges for different levels above your own – for example, if you have completed 100% of your survey profile, you’ll get a Platinum status badge for that section – but you cannot reach Diamond level until you’ve achieved all badges within Platinum.What is a Bronze member?
Bronze members are just getting started. To reach Bronze status, all you have to do is sign up and activate your account.What is a Silver member?
Silver is the first step on the ladder.
To reach Silver status, members must:
Gold members are becoming regular survey takers.
To reach Gold, members must:
Platinum members are active and regular survey takers who have almost completed their survey profile.
To reach Platinum status, members must:
Diamond members have reached the top level. They have a complete survey profile, have completed fifty surveys (or more) and maintain regular survey activity.
To reach Diamond status, members must:
To maintain your badge status, you must ensure that you continue to take surveys regularly – at least once a week. If you do not maintain your survey activity, your badge for consecutive surveys over one, two, three or four weeks will be lost and you’ll drop to the next level down.
Similarly you must keep your survey profile updated – some sections expire over time, such as technology, electronics and gadgets and automotive – so if you see your profile drop in percentage since you last logged in, check back and complete any sections within your survey profile that are less than 100% complete.
