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!

Going so far downhill..

August 15, 2019 by Tiffany from United States

This used to be an amazing app. Worked flawlessly, $2 per survey, excellent customer service. Recently, they would get you through an entire survey and tell you "thank you for completing" and then not credit you. Contact them and they give you some scripted response, and no credit. Now, to top it all off, surveys have been cut to $1. This app won't be open much longer.

Good app

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!

I signed up a month ago but decided not to use that app. I changed my mind and tried logging in but found out they banned my account, I got banned for literally doing nothing. I reached out and they got it fixed within a week.

A couple of days later, despite some issues with the app due to bugs, I made my first $10 but when I tried cashing out, they banned me again. Support was no help and once I reached out to the BBB, they changed their tune.

Support claimed I was inaccurate on my surveys (which wasn't remotely true), but when they responded to me through the BBB, they said they had no record of my account.

They basically took my information and once they got what they needed, they banned me. Got none of the money I earned or was owed. This is incredibly common, so just void this app.

There's WAY better sites (murk, prolific, etc) to make easy passive money, don't waste your time with QT.

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.

Probable waste of time

Tried to cash out and received an error. Account was locked shortly after. I'm hearing about this frequently from this site.
