Do NOT Waste Your Time

August 14, 2016 by Dan from United States

I had been completing these surveys as thoroughly and honestly as possible and how do they repay me? They close out my account for some unknown reason and I have YET to hear back from them indicating what it is that happened. Before you assume the worst, I can honestly say that I did NOTHING devious or dishonest whatsoever. As far as any of these other reviews that claim that they've attained multiple gift cards in a single day, I declare on shenanigans on those claims because in 3+ months time, I have been able to get ONE $10 iTunes card and was about halfway to a second. That's 3+ months and ONE gift card. They don't offer you enough surveys to be able to attain that many points to redeem. I think that I've maxed out at about 250-300 in one day. My point is that this one sucks and it's not worth it. Find something else to do--get a root canal done using this site since it's a lot more fun.

Great app.

I've had this app for two days and I've already gotten two iTunes gift cards. It gave me the code instantly once I redeemed it! Sometimes I would run out of surveys to do, but in half an hour there would be more surveys. I earned about $3 each survey. Great app! Fast and simple.

Almost started to like it

June 7, 2016 by Kenneth from United States

I started to like them but here is a updateI love the app when I am not locked out? They are very sensitive to other people signing up on a device used by another person! Also there are a lot of surveys that are not mobile compatible, I report these and they respond with a sorry we try to filter these out, when. I get these I sometimes am stuck because it wants to keep giving the same survey out! Now I am locked out again I think because my daughter took a Survey that was aimed at 13-17 year olds? I am not sure but she told me that the last one had a lot of questions about adult access with here mobile devices,! She can't remember the specifics but the questions should have been for a adult not between 13-17! She was mad because if I let my younger son take the survey he would have been asking what it was since I have shielded him from this so far. I Wish I saw the questions but I trust my daughter maybe it's for the best that I don't take surveys with them anymore. Be careful if you do they don't seem to be screening these surveys very well! I have been a member of another site since early 2009 and never had these kind of issues.

Quick, download app, complete maybe 3 screening questions, denied or approved immediately. Take survey and every ten dollars you're given either an Amazon or iTunes code. This site keeps everything simple from the layout to the delivery of rewards. Makes you wonder what them other fellas are trying to pull with all of the unnecessary drama.
