Banned after 2 good years

September 17, 2020 by Tessa from United States

I had used this app for nearly 2 years with no issues, loved it and took every survey very seriously. My account suddenly had a log in issue, I emailed them and they told me my account was in good standing and would be reactivated in 2 business days. I nicely waited over a week and still couldn't log in. Another email to them and they told me my account was banned, couldn't give me a reason why, and refused to take a second look at my account. I filed a BBB complaint that took them over a month to respond to, and someone said they would look into my account again. Next day I got a email stating my account had a second audit and I was permanently banned.

Please keep in mind, I had my account for almost 2 years. I knew all the rules and followed them closely and accurately. They tell everyone they are banned for the same handful of reasons and it's up to you to decide which one they think you're guilty of. It's usually having more than one account or lying about your answers and being inconsistent, all of which I know I am innocent of. The Amazon credit really helped me, so I was very serious about my membership. I stuck up for Quickthoughts and believed they banned people for good reasons, but this is absolutely not the case. It will happen to you too sooner or later, so make sure to always cash out every $10 and don't let money gather in your account. It's sad to see this app go as it was a daily ritual for me to do my 5 surveys a day, but I have since found other survey sites that pay just as well (or better) and will not look back to Quickthoughts or any SSI/Dynata ran site again.

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.

Takes a long time to reach the $10 giftcard. Most surveys you don't even qualify for.

They'll take your money

August 12, 2020 by Sam from Canada

I would have given them a fantastic review a year ago, but after months of being unable to redeem, they banned me for requesting assistance. It's a story that's common right now for Quickthoughts. Their stakeholders need to disassociate with this company. Everyone gets banned eventually.

They have let me down in a big way

August 1, 2020 by Tiffiny from United States

If you had asked me a week ago I would have given them a five-star rating. I got lots of surveys. I was a big proponent of their app. About 4 days ago while trying to redeem $10 for my Amazon code I was told to try back later. I also was not receiving new surveys.
Their reasoning was vague. I have asked them for specifics which I very much doubt that I would get. I told them I was going to report them to the Better Business Bureau and that it was also illegal for them to withhold things that I've already earned. Unfortunately, this is not unusual for them as I have discovered on a Facebook group specifically about them. It's happening to a lot of people. My advice is do not sign up with them. Business has happened to you Don't take it lying down report them on here, to the better business bureau to your state attorney general's office if they owe you money or a gift card I guess. contact their corporate as well as their parent company.
