Easy to get points and interesting surveys

August 19, 2019 by Shannon from United States

I love this site. Easy to rack up some points everyday and the surveys "by the people" are interesting. Comments that follow are often interesting as well. Points redeemed are awarded quickly and their customer service is responsive.

excellent site

August 15, 2019 by John from Canada

i like the website, they offer lots of survey and polls to do. It's a fun place to go to and I log in everyday just to do the polls. When I got paid, it took 3 days for it to process and 1 day to get into the mailbox for me to redeem the prize. I highly recommend using this website as part of your survey groups.

Various topics and easy payout

Tellwut offers lots of surveys and polls of various lengths, values and topics, as well as user created polls. Their payouts are attainable & hassle-free.

Awesome survey site!

July 28, 2019 by Nikole from United States

It's easy to earn points everyday, takes no time to build up enough points for a reward and once you put in for a reward, it comes super fast! Its based in Canada, when I put in for my first reward, it came in the regular mail (first one comes in reg mail, after that, they come in email unless you request otherwise), it took 3 days to get to me in the States. I just put in for another reward last night & it was in my email this morning!!

Fun site and great support unit

July 27, 2019 by Ingrid from United States

I've been with TellWut only a short time and so far, earned points quickly through their surveys. The surveys are short, fun, and interesting. They often include current issues of the day. There are additional ways to earn points but I haven't explored them to full advantage yet. My first award was mailed to me (as was explained for security validation). My second award was to be sent via email and when it appeared that it might be mailed like the first one, I became concerned and contacted support. Their customer service was superb! They responded promptly, addressed all of my issues, and within hours my gift card posted and was available for use. Thumbs up for TellWut!

Update 10/25/2016: Still a Tellwut member. They have become one of my favorite sites and a steady source of gift card rewards. Recently tried to cash out and to my dismay I was presented with prize options exclusive to Canadians only. I live in the US and thinking there had been a major change in policy, I feared my Tellwut days were over. I contacted Support and they responded rapidly with a solution and reassurance. A little tech magic ensued and in warp-speed, I was able to access the proper reward list and retrieve my gift card of choice. I would give them 5 stars for the site alone so these 5 for customer service should give them a total ranking of 10!

Update: 07/26/2019: Three years and many amazon gift certificates later, I am even more impressed with Tellwut than ever. About a month ago, I tried to apply their gift card to Amazon, only to have it rebuffed as already cashed in on another account. When I contacted Tellwut support, they investigated and sent me a replacement which was also rejected as having been cashed already. After some sleuthing, we determined it most likely that my email had been hacked and manipulated such that my gift cards were being commandeered before I could apply them to my own Amazon account. I don't know if Amazon chose to pursue investigating at their end but that wasn't our decision to make. Tellwut sent me yet another gc (keep in mind, they'd already released two to parties unknown and could have said 'no more' as this was none of their doing)....this time to my alternate email address and it went through without a hitch. I applaud their patience, understanding, and willingness to stand by me throughout the whole experience. Thumbs up, 5 stars, and kudos!!! I can't say enough good things about them.
