Won't pay rewards

November 26, 2019 by Chad from United States

I tried to redeem my $5.00 reward and was not able to. Smart Panel finally emailed me back stating that I didn't follow terms and policy but was not in anyway specific, no phone number to contact them, don't know if they are still collecting my personal information.

Go sell your information to some place that actually pays you.

November 19, 2019 by Yusef from United States

Welp, it's about time to part ways with this company. A shame, really. Ignoring the fact that for the past 5 years their app has actively tried to force my computer to use their proxy, it's been a good ride. But that time is over.

When I first joined, passively getting 5 bucks a month (with a 5$, then 10$, then 15$ bonus for 3 consecutive months of verified activity) was a solid offer. My information is already being collected anyway, so I figured what's the harm in being paid for it? You also periodically received surveys that gave bonus rewards, of which I rarely saw any but I appreciated it when I did qualify for them. The criteria was also fairly generous, as you really didn't have to have the app running for most of the month, just check in every few days or so.

Then, about a year ago, the max bonus incentive dropped to $10. Okay, I thought. No biggie. 25 bucks passively every 3 months instead of 30. Then, not even half a year after that, about two months prior to this review, they decided to forego payment for keeping the app active, saying they would instead opt to increase survey rewards to compensate.

I haven't seen a single survey in more than a year, and certainly no increase in surveys in the past two months. So this site is demanding my info with only the possibility of meaningful compensation. It's been real, but I'm going to disable your app permanently and never have to worry about your proxy nonsense again. If even Survey Savvy has made improvements to how their app interacts with cellphones, it's embarrassing that you haven't done so in the five years I've been a part of your site for PC.

Hi Yusef,

Thanks for your review and for your feedback! Survey opportunities vary depending on the required demographic information, so we can't unfortunately give a concrete average estimate.

Best wishes,
Smart App Team
WARNING! Don't do it!

October 25, 2019 by Shari from United States

This app screwed up my Proxy settings and couldn't access half the websites I used within 5 minutes of installing. You're selling out all you do for a lousy $5 a month and it isn't worth the headache.

Smart App responded to this review on October 26, 2019

Hi Shari,

Thanks for leaving a review.

We're sorry to hear you had issues with Smart App on your PC - the app should typically run in the background and cause no interference, but we understand that sometimes some connectivity issues may arise.

If you haven't already, please get in touch with our support team and inform them, for example, of which websites you had trouble accessing. This will help us provide a better experience to panelists like you.

Best wishes,
Emily / Smart Panel Team
No Good

July 13, 2019 by Jacqueline from United States

They promised to pay $5 a month if you downloaded their app to your phone. But they quit paying anything, so I quit using it.

Smart App responded to this review on July 22, 2019

Hi Jacqueline,

Thanks for your review. To clarify, as a Smart Panel member, you are only disqualified from redeeming rewards if you have broken the Terms of Service.

If your account is still in good standing, you can continue to earn rewards for completing surveys, and you will still be automatically entered to win our monthly giveaways -- even if not all of your devices are connected or if you're a member of the Surveys & Giveaways program.

Thanks again!
Best wishes,
Alex / Smart Panel Team
