Survey Taking Experience

Survey lengths are typically between 10-20 minutes and most members are contacted anywhere between 1-4 times a month to complete a study.

For ultimate survey taking convenience, Unlock Surveys 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!

Slow Start

January 31, 2012 by Samuel from United States

Joined a couple of months ago. Only received 2 suveys and a sweeps entry. But seems legit. Havent had a problem other than I might be able to get my 50 to cash out in hmmm lets see. Two years....

Slow Rewards

November 29, 2011 by Mark from United States

I have been a member since June09. In that time I have managed to cash out 4 times. It takes a terribly long time to earn enough rewards to be worthwhile but it is CASH. Just keep plugging away. Their rewards are not stellar nor the surveys that frequent but 50 cash fits so good in my pocket I cant shy away. Understand its slow and drawn out but they do Pay. Surveys are always fun and easy to complete

Could do better with incentive

November 14, 2011 by Lorna from United States

Why can't they let me cash out at, say, $25? Why does it have to be $50? I have been with Springboard America for about two years now and I'm only at around $30 earned. The surveys are great and interesting, and I do get them from time to time, but it seems I get more of them that are for sweepstakes entries and not "rewards." I will probably leave, too, once I get that $50 incentive.

Waaay too long to cash out

September 20, 2011 by Paula from United States

I will be retired by the time I get to the $50 cash out level. Need a big .50 and have for over a month. Lots of surveys for just entries into their sweeps tho. No, thanks. Think I have been working on this for close to 3 years. Doubt I will continue once I get my money.
