Survey Taking Experience

Take Interesting Surveys

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

Mobile Surveys

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!

Been a member for a long time and I enjoy it. It takes awhile to mount of your points but they send it right away.

canceled my account without warning

November 6, 2020 by Thomas from United States


I have been a member of Maru Springboard America for over a year and never had a problem. At the end of October I tried to log in to my account and was denied access.
When I want to enter Maru Springboard America I am told that I am being terminated for violations of its terms and conditions, because the surveys are answered lightly, because an error was made in shared IP, vpn, vps etc. which I think is incorrect(false). because the automatic system would have detected it long ago, these errors. Instead of contacting me and telling me there was a problem, they simply canceled my account without warning.
I have always been in a good position to contribute to giving correct and honest opinions to you and I do not know any reason why my account should have been canceled. I hope this is a system error because I have accumulated points that I have acquired throughout the year. I am sending this email to Maru Springboard America on November 2nd asking to be able to activate my account and redeem the points I have earned. If they want to cancel my account it would be unfair, however I want to redeem the points I earned during the year.

Thank you very much for having a good day

Was long time survey taker

September 11, 2020 by Jeanne from United States

Was a long time survey taker with them for years, and suddenly out of blue they closed my account and said there were quality errors. I asked them to pinpoint the error and they can’t. They listed offensive possibilities as to what may have happened such as leaving gibberish which I never would do I’m a serious survey taker.
