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.

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!

Terrible experience

November 15, 2019 by Andrei from Canada


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.

I got the app and it was great, got my account up to almost 20 and went to cash out but couldn't, waited the 72 hours to take more surveys and cash out and my account was locked. Sent 3 emails to customer service and no response. Such a waste of time and not worth it at all. I've read about this happening to others as well so take it as a warning.

Same recent experience

April 28, 2019 by Greg from United States

Worked reasonably well for months, despite glitches that when finishing some surveys would not credit.

Built up a good balance, then redeemed two $10 codes. Immediately after the second redemption, the App indicated 'no network connection '. This persists today.

Emailed customer service and nine days later received the same vague canned response being banned indefinitely. Have emailed back trying to get specifics for the ban, but have not gotten a response.

It may be worth to contact BBB. From reading the other posts, there is a pattern of banning participants in order to avoid payouts.

Bad site!

I never leave reviews for survey companies but I felt I must for this one. I am in the same situation as everyone else. Last week when I tried to cash in for a $10 GC, my acct. went to the login and I got an network error message. I have tried to contact them but haven't heard anything back yet. I have been doing online surveys for 19 years and am very careful how I fill out the surveys. I take it very seriously even though it is for low pay. What they are doing is simply wrong!

UPDATE: I am editing this to say I just got the same canned answer as everyone else saying that my acct. was suspended because I was in violation of the terms. Of which they did not give me any details.

I read the complaints on the BBB and discovered that QT was responding there and sometimes giving back people's money and reinstating their accts. So that is one option open to us.

Was once great

April 23, 2019 by Jennifer from United States

I see from many other reviews that I am not alone. Have taken surveys with Quick Thoughts for two years and enjoyed the rewards I received until two weeks ago, while trying to redeem it kicked me off the would not allow me to log back in. This morning got an email that I was at fault for miss use. Really? how do you answer simple question wrong?
