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.

Very Fun

December 8, 2012 by kathy from United States

Short surveys written by the members. It is mindless, fun, and takes very little time. Easy way to make $20 a month in Walmart or Home Depot gift cards. The cards also come very quickly. Only negative, there seem to be far less new questions available as of late. As a result, it is taking a little longer to earn the gift cards.

Fun-tastic...but where is the money coming from?

December 8, 2012 by Michelle from Canada

Love this site. I learn something new every day. Points build up pretty fast and reward options are decent.

The only thing I'm wondering about is where the money is coming from... It is my understanding that normally a company would hire a survey panel to distribute a survey and the rewards we receive are a small percentage of the profit made by the survey panel. In this case the surveys are user-created and may never serve any real statistical purpose. Also, there is no fee to join or remain a how does Tellwut have so much money to hand out to people?

If I'm missing something obvious please point it out...

Tellwut so easy to do surveys with

November 14, 2012 by Frank from Canada

Very easy survey company to deal with..4000 points gets you at least a $10 Amazon Gift Cert...If you like to click on simple surveys this is the site for you

Good survey site

November 14, 2012 by Jade from United States

I joined a number of survey sites at the same time and this is the first one that I have been able to cash out on. I received my Amazon gift card very quickly, and I am very happy to get a physical card rather than just a redemption code. You will not get rich quick or anything off of this site, but the surveys (user created) are easy to do, and you will get paid. If you are on the fence about this one, I would say you should do it.

Unfortunately, this site allows you to fill in surveys upto redemption threshold of $10, then tell you they can't pay you as its US/Canada residents only.
The site should automatically block non US/Canada residents so they don't waste 5 hours reaching their redemption. AMATEURISH
