Getting rewards takes too long.

March 26, 2020 by Mary from United States

It seems to take "forever" to earn points. I have been on this site for a year and 1/2. I appreciate getting surveys that are relevant to me, but it takes so long. Otherwise, the surveys are interesting and fun.

Takes a entire year to cash out

December 10, 2019 by Kara from United States

Barely any surveys. Did a survey back in end feb and still havent got paid for it. you have to get to 50 bucks which takes a great deal of time. Takes about a year to reach cash out but its worth it to have 50 to spend.. survey format is fun but surveys are kinda scarce and dont qualify for many.

What happened?

July 7, 2019 by Rae from United States

I have been a member of Springboard for many years and it was a decent site. Not lots of surveys, but good, simple, short and simple surveys that paid fairly well. Now all of a sudden but for a while do not get any email invitations at all, period and when I go to the site there are non there either. I do not know what happened. Hated to see them so worthless. I still have points and hoping to be able to do surveys again someday. I email support and they tell me nothing is wrong. Something is wrong. Keeping my fingers crossed I guess.

I have been a member now for 11 months I have only accumulated 30 dollars in that time. Cashout is 50. I receive about one survey every 2 weeks. Quality for half. It is painfully slow process. Will take well over a year to cashout. My advice many better survey companies out there

GC had no value

December 18, 2018 by Ana from United States

I had enough points to get a $50 gc. I choose Applebee's. When we got to the restaurant, they told us the card had no value. I wrote several times to SpAm before getting a reply that they did not issue the rewards. I contacted the incentive company, again, several times before getting an answer. They said the card had been used the day they issued it, in California (I'm in Idaho.). The e-mail with the GC number was somehow hacked before I got it. They did not offer to replace it.
