Survey Taking Experience

For ultimate survey taking convenience, Springboard America is fully accessible from tablet and mobile devices. There's no need to download an app! The best part about this feature is the smart technology, which allows you to start a survey on your desktop and continue it on your smartphone!

What happened?

January 4, 2024 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 they are not 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.\

Update: My first review for Maru Springboard America was on 7-7-2019. I want to update this review now on 1-3-24. Now I am getting email invitations, not really often but several a week. I have not tried cashing out recently but do not expect any problem now. I do not remember how this issue was resolved either. The site is beautiful and pretty simple. So far so good.

SPAM Maru Springboard America

It took a long time, but I finally accrued 4,950 points. Then I realized that my points did Not increase when I continued to do many more surveys. It just stayed at 4,950. I emailed Maru Springboard America. In fact, I emailed them six times. Each time I got a different answer. The last time I emailed they actually lowered my points to 4,900 and told me they did not lower my points.

What happened ???

Gone way down

Hard to qualify and often told you did not qualify at very end of survey. Surveys take much longer than promised.

Biased, racial discrimination

June 21, 2023 by Zunni from United States

I had first heard good things about this site, so i joined. My very first 3 surveys i was taking allowed me to complete up to 96% then when I was asked about my race and if i was of Latino origin i answered yes then the very next 2 questions asked if i was fluent in English and Spanish and when i answered yes, all of a sudden the survey decided it was not suitable for me! And mind you this happened 3 times in s row!
