High Payout Threshold

April 5, 2013 by Dave from United States

Other then that, they are ok. It took me 9 months to make $50

3+ years to cash out threshold

December 11, 2012 by Cynthia from United States

I have just received my first, last & only check from Springboard, and unsubscribed as soon as I opened it. It has taken over 3 years & hundreds of surveys to reach the ridiculously high $50 cash out threshold. The monthly " mosaic" is a thinly-veiled way if gathering info without compensation, claiming that it will help you qualify for more surveys. Not!!! Unless you like filling out surveys for free, or enjoy being disqualified, run away.

$14.75 SINCE DECEMBER 2010

October 26, 2012 by D'Jean from United States

I wrote them this week to ask if they'd make an exception, that at the above rate, it will take me 8 years to accumulate $50 because they send so few surveys. Add to that disqualifications. I will be almost 90 before I can cash in, their answer is it's all in the Terms and Conditions. Definitely do not recommend them, they're the highest cashout of the 35+ survey groups I belong to, and I see here that $20 used to be their cashout. Sleazy.

Not the Best

July 2, 2012 by vincent from United States

Don't see a lot of surveys from them and the $50 cash out is ridicules.
Think it took well over a year the 1st time and it's been another year now and I'm up to $37.
Surveys usually fast and simple to do,incentives not high at all.
But when you do hit the $50 mark if ever they will send you a check.
Nowhere near the best but in my many years of doing surveys I find them far from the worst!

Payout Threshold Too High

March 27, 2012 by Louanne from United States

Surveys are longer than what is claimed in the invitation. When I first joined 2 yrs ago the payout threshold was $20, now it's $50. I'll be dead before I hit the $50 payout, so I've decided to cancel my relationship with this survey group.
