Great App but..

September 16, 2020 by Mary from United States

I like this app because the surveys pay a dollar no matter the length and you get 10 cents if you don't qualify. The only thing is, the payout is a 10 dollar itunes giftcard only. I'm just guessing if they added more cards, it would somehow be harder to reach the goal of 10, which for now, I can get in a day. Good app though, for me.

Update, 9/20... I love this app. My last cashout, i did not get my gift card code right away,normally I do, so I wrote them and they were fast to respond. I did have to go back and forth with them a few times for a week but they were professional and kind and I got my code. I like that they added Amazon card too. Great site so far and no issues.

The Best Amazon Payments

April 1, 2020 by Lester from United States

I been with Quick Thoughts for over 10 yrs and saved up to $300 and counting. The pay range is from $1 to $6. Yes I did a lot of $6 surveys and got paid rite after I completed the surveys. You can cash out at $10 but I chose to save up to $500. I'm on a roll but I wish that they could give you different choices to cash out to because everybody don't do Amazon. Would be real nice if they at least had PayPal in case people really need the cash to buy food for their kids or to put gas in your car or pay a bill or something. Please start doing PayPal. Y'all would make the world a much better place. #Surveyking504

Yearly Claim Limit

December 24, 2019 by Christopher from United States

I have had no problems with this app or customer service so far, been using it for well over 2 years the only thing is if you claim over $500 a year they will make you fill out a W-9 form and block you from claiming until they have one on file for the current year. So it's best to send them a W-9 form at the beginning of the year so you don't have any problems claiming your rewards.

Love it so far

October 8, 2019 by Andrea from United States

I just downloaded the app 2 weeks ago and so far I've already made $30 in Amazon gift cards. The surveys pay $1 and I just got a $4 survey that didn't take me long at all to complete. I plan on using it for Christmas money so I'm happy so far.

Good app

July 23, 2019 by Katherine from United States

I guess I'm one of the lucky few. I have had nothing but a good experience with this app. I get paid 2.00 per survey that I qualify for and always make sure I give accurate information. I joined on June 20 and have made 200 dollars worth of Amazon cards since. I'm using the money to buy my son clothes for school! Love this app!
