Much Better!

June 5, 2017 by Kitty from United States

EDIT AS OF 6/3/17

After finding out what was causing the error, and the app getting an update, it works so much smoother now! I get a least one survey a day, and I've already cashed out once in only a few weeks. Only downside is that it's usually only one or two surveys a day, but it's okay with me.

(Also, the error kept happening because the app freaks out if you stop in the middle of a survey and then come back to finish it hours later.)

Suspicious Reward Problem!

June 4, 2017 by William from United States

Ok, I'm new to this survey game. I joined "Quick Thoughts" about 2 wks. ago. I logged in during that time, took the surveys and no problem. I get enough for my 1st $10 amazon gift card and NOW all of a sudden there is a problem with logging into my account. I just sent my 3rd request for assistance from these guys and no response yet! I had no issues with these guys until now. Given my newbie status with survey taking, I found these guys to be one of the better ones with smooth smartphone, browser access and account credit. We'll see what happens...

I Like It Now

May 23, 2017 by Kate from United States

*** Edited as I said I would after being with QuickThoughts longer. I have gone from 4 to 5 stars because there's no reason not to. I have redeemed for three $10 Amazon codes already in the short time I've been there. Found out that the "account lock" was indeed because the limit is five per day and I'd done six. Definitely my oversight because it's right in the terms.

Review for app version... not sure if they have a web version or not. As soon as I downloaded QuickThoughts, I started qualifying for surveys and making money. They are for $2 each usually, with 10 cents if you don't qualify.

Problem came in on the third day, though. I couldn't log in and said to contact them because there was a problem with my account. I wrote and although it took a while for a response, they did answer and as of this morning, my account is reactivated and I have cashed out for an immediate $10 Amazon code... so they are definitely legit.

I have since read (here at Survey Police actually!) that someone thought there was a 5 a day limit, and that makes sense to me although they didn't tell me that. I looked back over my history, and sure enough, I'd done 6 the day before the account locked. So I won't be doing that again. :-)

After I use it for a while, and if things remain as they are now, I will amend this review or do another and give it a 5-star because it is so rare that I qualify for many surveys, and $2 each is impressive (and rare!) in today's survey environment.

The quickest way to get $ on surveys

The quickest way to get $ on surveys. Lots of surveys adds up quick.

My absolute favorite!

April 21, 2017 by Kristina from United States

I've joined a few survey sites and downloaded a million survey apps, this one is my go to & the only app that remains on my phone. It is 100% LEGIT! Before Christmas, in about 3-4 weeks time I earned $130 worth of Amazon GC. I quit using it daily (due to the horrible phone I was using, not QT!) until about 2 weeks ago when I downloaded the app again. As of right now, I have $70 sitting in my Amazon account - Thanks solely to Quickthoughts!!! I've only had one problem with logging in & they resolved it immediately when I emailed them (it was because I switched phones, I believe, not sure). I rarely have surveys close out at the end, but the one time I did, I emailed them and they added my reward to my account no problem and within 24hours. I've never had any mission opportunities, but I live in a rural area & rarely go to town. (My friend lives inside our extremely small town & has gone on a few missions, she said they were easy & paid well!) My rewards are normally $2 now instead of $3, but I get more surveys than I used to, so it evens out. Also, they are almost always right about how long a survey will take! The shortest survey I've ever had was 3 minutes & the longest was 30.
-Sometimes you get more surveys by using your web browser on your phone or laptop!
-Check back every hour or so if you can, there is usually a new survey opportunity!
-You can only have ONE account, so you can't sign in on your app using someone else's account, it will only allow yours. This is no problem for me, but if your using the web browser to switch between accounts, be careful because they may think it is fraud and close the accounts.
- Im not 100% sure, but I think you can only complete 5 surveys a day, and you usually get 10c for not qualifying for surveys (I believe it also has a daily limit of 5 times).
- If you're using an iPhone but want Amazon GC's, or if you're using an Android but want iTunes GC's, just sign in on the website using your web browser and you can choose which giftcards you want there! :)
