Survey Taking Experience

Types of Assignments

Although QuickThoughts primarily offers mobile surveys, sometimes other opportunities are offered, such as shopping assignments where you could be asked to take pictures of products on store shelves. Other shopping assignments such as taking in-store polls near you, or providing feedback on your shopping experience at a local store, are also available.

High Survey Availability

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!

Just WOW

December 10, 2019 by Tina from United States

I should have listened to these reviews to begin with. Was great "at first" and after cashing in the first time I continued to do surveys and then out of the blue I was locked out. Have sent emails with no response and I have money left in my account I can't get to. My advice is to not cash out until you are ok with being locked out and only cash out when you have an even amount so you get all your money.

Unsure about this one...

This app is very frustrating! Lately, I get to the end of surveys and it says I didn't qualify, even though I have finished the entire survey. I will spend 20+ minutes on a survey for NOTHING! Customer service is never a help, they always say their records show I didn't qualify even though they can see I spent significant time on it, and there is no way for me to prove it. I can earn Amazon gift cards, but I have to wade through all the bullshit to get there. It seems highly unethical/unfair and possibly illegal what they are doing, and I see that I am not the only one they are doing it to.

They are unfair

It was very good app until I tried to log in from another country where I had vacation. They blocked my account just because of it. I am very disappointed. I did not have another account, answered truthfully, I did not know that I can not login from another country.

Terrible experience

I used this palform on IPhone and several times received itunes gift cards .
But when I wanted to use this platform on android, my account has been temporarily suspended..

Technical support instead, in order to help solve the problem, decided to block permanent my account.

P.S. If you read my review, then it is better to consider other platforms, otherwise you will most likely have the same fate.

Locked out of my account

November 15, 2019 by Unigka from United States

I became a member of Quickthoughts in January 2019. Everything was great.
Plenty of $2, sometimes $3 and even a $10 survey offers. I was in heaven for nearly eleven until yesterday, 11-13-2019. I could not log in. First the message said that I had no internet connection, which was not true. My internet was fine until I went to the Quickthoughts app.
I tried to log in again, then another message says: There is an issue with your account, contact customer service. I decided go to Google Reviews. A swarm of people were getting the exact same messages as I did.
They were making lots of money ( Amazon GC) with them. I cashed out $10 every few days. I'm sure that I made over $200 in Amazon GC while being a member.

It seems like Quickthoughts dumps members when they start making too much money. The great reviews are from members who have just joined or haven't been a member that long.
I thought it was cruel that Quickthoughts start licking people out of their accounts when it's close to the holidays. A lot were using their Amazon GC to get Christmas gifts.

Also, their customer service is not good. They either take forever to respond, or don't respond at all . I didn't even bother contacting them this time. I uninstalled. I don't like how Quickthoughts treats their members.
So if you're a new member, enjoy it while it lasts.
