Survey Taking Experience

Types of Surveys Offered

Fun polls created by users (maximum of 2 postings per week) or submitted by businesses. Users can log in to their accounts daily to take surveys and do not have to wait for e-mail invitations.

Survey Completion Times

Each survey/poll available typically takes less than 30 seconds to complete, and many new polls are available on the website daily. Once the surveys have closed you may browse through the results to see how your answers stacked up when compared to others!

Survey Availability

Members of Tellwut can simply log into their accounts to take all of the available surveys for that day - invitations to complete surveys are not typically emailed.

Most survey points are awarded directly after you finish a survey, although occasionally some surveys must close before points are awarded. Allow for 10-15 days to receive your points from survey participation.

Never Received Points

October 16, 2019 by Nigel from United States

I just finished survey ID #1305138-120705 and completed it in full for 50 points. I never received my agreed upon points. This issue of completing surveys and Tellwut refusing to allot my promised points has gone on for months. I do not like spending time and effort completing surveys and not getting any points. I want points for this survey.

A Waste of Time

October 8, 2019 by Anthony from United States

I spent twenty minutes completing survey #1284460-120705 and upon clicking the submit button, Tellwut told me I didn't qualify for the survey and refused to reward me my 75 points. When I contacted tellwut to complain, customer service refused to allot me my 75 points.

This is not the first time I have had this problem with Tellwut's lousy customer service refusing to give me my agreed upon points. I would spend fifteen, twenty minutes completing a survey and, as soon as I hit the submit button, it would say I didn't qualify or they already met quota.

Tellwut responded to this review on October 8, 2019

Hi Anthony,

Thank you for sharing your experience and being a part of our community. We would like to bring your attention to the fact that the points have been awarded to your account based on the amount of time you have spent on that survey. You can check that by changing the "Show:All" option to "Show: Credit Adjustment" under the search bar that appears after you login. You should see that there will be a credit adjustment made on 10/07/2019

Thank you,
Tellwut Support
TellWut Doesn't Reward

August 12, 2019 by Nigel from United States

Tellwut refuses to reward me my agreed upon points for survey I completed.I finished surveys 1220628-120705 and 1220820-120705, neither of which I was rewarded. When I spent over fifteen minutes completing a survey and hit the submit button, it noted they met their quota. When I contacted them to complain, they said I was disqualified.

Tellwut responded to this review on August 13, 2019

Hi Nigel,

Thank you for your feedback about our surveys. We really apologize that you had difficulty in completing the surveys. As we mentioned in our emails to you, you only completed a couple mins of each survey and not the whole thing, which is why were unable to give the full points. We apologize for any inconvenience you might have had due to this.
Where is my Walmart gift card

June 5, 2019 by LINDA from United States

I earned a Walmart gift card last month on Tellwut.com and when I tried to use it, it was invalid! I have tried emailing them several times about this and to send me a legit one but no one has done anything! Can you please look into this for me?

Tellwut responded to this review on June 11, 2019

Hi Linda,

Thank you for the review. We have responded to your inquiry (three times). It seems like our replies to you are not going into your "Inbox" and we request you to check your junk/spam email. In order to send you a new one we would require the card number and the pin so that we can contact the supplier (Walmart) to re-send you a new one. We request you to email us the card number and its pin to [email protected]
Wheres the surveys?

August 11, 2018 by Marcia from United States

Lets start by saying I've been a member since the beginning of 2013. I log in today and there are no "user created surveys". There are normally maybe about 25-30-ish on the site daily under "Most Recent"....there are only the external thru Tellwut to try and qualify for now. The "user created surveys" are the reason a lot of people like the site...feels like a community. Wheres the surveys? If the "user created surveys" are gone, so am I!
UPDATE....8/28/2017 I've emailed customer support yesterday...no reply yet...I logged in today and "Most Recent" link was back and there were usual amount of "User Generated Surveys" AND THEN, did 2 and the rest disappeared with the link of "Most Recent" completely vanishing.
UPDATE....later on 8/28/2017...email from support
Hi Marcia
Thank you for contacting us. In order to have full access to the user created surveys panel members must successfully complete an external survey (either from the Available Surveys page or from e-mail) at least once every 30 days. The last time you successfully completed one was July 27th 2017.
The user created surveys do not generate any income for Tellwut, therefore it is not a viable business option for us to pay panel members to only take the user created surveys.
Thanks and regards,
Tellwut Support

I have very rarely attempted the external surveys and have maybe completed an external survey 10 times in 4 years with Tellwut....most are "samplious" surveys that go nowhere fast...so, why all of a SUDDEN IS THIS AN ISSUE? I cannot find anywhere on the site where this is expressed in writing for members. Also, a Thanx for being a member could have went a long way here...maybe a when the policy was started....feeling very unappreciated right now.
UPDATE...8/20/2017...I had 3 available external surveys available to try today when usually there are a whole page full...I have to complete a third party survey to have access to user generated surveys.....kinda hard to do when have only 3 trys....hard to go with Tellwut!
UPDATE...2/24/2018...I log in today, take 1 user generated survey and Im told I now have to complete a third party survey every 14 days...as per Tellwut policy stated earlier in this reply to me, it was every 30 days!!!!! Whats going on????
