Worst survey rewards site

August 17, 2021 by Frank from United States

My account was indefinitely suspended for "the accuracy and attentiveness" of surveys. I enter all information correct like I would on any other surveying site. Avoid this site at all costs. They kept my $20 and suspended my account. Avoid at all costs, there's plenty of other surveying apps that don't ban you over something petty.

Wouldn't allow redemption

June 23, 2021 by Daron from Australia

No problems at all, until I reached ten dollars and tried to redeem. They claimed they had detected problems with my answers, and locked my account. My answers were honest and thoughtful with all surveys, and they didn't mention any problems until I claimed the money.

I accrued money pretty quickly which was cool so I thought I would save up some and when I reached $50 I wanted to cash that in for some amazon money and I kept getting an error message. I contacted customer support and i got the same generic message it seems everyone has gotten about my accuracy and my account was flagged and suspended.

I asked for a supervisor to get back to me and they said my account will be sent to the accounts team for re-review. I had never even cashed out any money I was letting it accrue and I think they got scared and didn't want to pay it out. I am always careful when I am doing surveys so I do not understand why my account was flagged and suspended. I told them in an email that this is the first I am hearing of any issues and I wasn't even given a warning and now I haven't heard anything!

There was nothing wrong with my account or data they just don't want to pay out after all my time I spent taking over $50 in surveys.

Not sure

April 6, 2021 by Amy from United States

This site used to be great! It was a quick and convenient way to earn $20 every few days. About 3 weeks ago, I stopped receiving survey invites. After several emails to Quickthoughts, and being told my account is active, they are still not sending me invites. It has just stopped for an unexplainable reason. They have just stopped sending my surveys.

Loved it, Suspended, then Reinstated

February 24, 2021 by Maria from United States

In the beginning, the company will send you warm and friendly emails talking about how to maximize the number of surveys you can receive and how thankful they are for you being a member. Then, once you start seeing several available surveys in your feed, using the app is fun. After you earn enough to cash out and try to do so, however, prepare for crickets.

I earned $14.30 and tried to cash out maybe 3 times. Then, I contacted customer support. I didn't hear anything for 5 days. So, I contacted them again. Only then did I get a generic, copy and paste email back saying that my account had been suspended (nobody ever told me in any way shape or form that was what was wrong and why I couldn't cash out). I was being accused of not providing quality or honest answers, having lied about my demographic information, or not paying attention while completing surveys. All of these are complete BS, because I do surveys to make a living. I lost almost all of my income due to COVID-19, so I take these survey apps and websites very seriously because they are literally my lifeline right now. I have requested an account reinstatement, but am not holding my breath. Sure, it's only $14.30, but that's a handful of cheap meals for my family right now that we so desperately need.

UPDATE: My appeal was read by a customer service person who reviewed my survey responses personally and saw that the flagging of my account was in error. My answers are good, consistent, and I see my surveys through to the end. My account was reinstated and I was apologized to for the problem and inconvenience. I was able to cash out and have taken several more surveys since then. This type of response is virtually unheard of in the survey-taking world, but securely puts QuickThoughts back in my good book.
