Survey Taking Experience

Types of Assignments

QuickThoughts is unique in that it connects you with 1000's of online survey sources, making a constant number of surveys available to take.

Survey Lengths and Compensation

Mobile survey lengths vary, but typically take anywhere from 5 to 30 minutes. Surveys award between $0.50 - $3 each. You will even receive $0.10 if you are screened out!

Now requires ID for payout "verification"

October 22, 2023 by Jackalope from United States

With my last payout, I went through the usual steps to authorize it, only to find that participants are now required to upload a driver's license or passport (!) in order to "verify" payment. There was no notice in advance or I would not have continued to do surveys with them. I'm in communication hoping to find an alternative way to cash out of the amount owed to me, but am changing my rating now and likely will soon stop my survey participation with QuickThoughts.

Before, I felt it was overall a worthwhile site, despite very frequent disqualifications and glitches, and sometimes very tedious surveys. Fun topics. Most fairly fast to complete. Payout is fast and efficient with Amazon gift cards with $10 threshold. But see above, now ID must be uploaded so I'm ending my participation.

Don't trust them!

June 16, 2023 by Amy from United States

This company locked my account for no reason. When I inquired about it, they never told me why. I was informed that if I would share my driver's license with them to "verify" my account they would allow me access. I am not sharing that information with anyone. They are closing my account due to the fact that I will not share my license with them. Would not recommend.

Best than others

April 17, 2023 by Muhammad from United Arab Emirates

Quickthought offers the best platform to reward your words and opinion. Very smooth payment methods and real professional way of passive earning.

Awesome rewards

April 16, 2023 by Doug from United States

Every survey is $2 or $3. The surveys are just as long as many other sites but 3 times the payout. And if you don't qualify you still get $.10 for the first 4 surveys each day.

$1 surveys and I qualify for most

January 5, 2023 by Andrea from United States

There are usually a few surveys available at any given time and they pay a minimum of $1.00. If you keep checking, you can easily get 5-10 in a day. I probably qualify for 75% of the surveys I try to take. They only pay by Amazon or Apple gift cards, but we use Amazon a lot so it's helpful. I'm enjoying it more than most survey sites I've tried!
