Don't waste your time

February 7, 2020 by Lois from United States

This is a web app that paid me once, but after I was near cashing out again I was locked me out of my account. I have just completed one of their surveys through another panel I'm in but didn't get credited for it.

Hi Lois,

Thank you for your review.

We're sorry to hear that you are not happy with your experience with us.

On occasion, some accounts are flagged, and following a thorough review a few of those accounts will regrettably need to remain closed as they have breached the user agreement or engaged in activity not permitted on the specific panel.

If you believe your account was incorrectly closed, please kindly send an e-mail to our member services team via: [email protected] They are able to reassess what happened to your account and if it was incorrectly closed.

Kind regards,
The QuickThoughts Team
Just WOW

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...

December 2, 2019 by Tee from United States

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.

Hi Tee,

Thank you for taking the time to review us. We’re sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your experience with us.

We always try to match the right survey to the right profile. Unfortunately, members may not always qualify for a survey because some clients require a specific demographic to complete the study. This is why a number of qualifying questions are asked to make sure that you fit in the demographics and are suitable for the survey.

We understand that not qualifying can be frustrating at times and we continue to do our best to match the right survey to the right profile.

Kind regards,
The QuickThoughts Team
Terrible experience

November 15, 2019 by Andrei from Canada

Hi,

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.

DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME

June 29, 2019 by emily from United States

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.
