This app is a SCAM!! Do not participate with Quickthoughts. I had a balance of $40.05 and when I tried to redeem it for Amazon gift cards it said there was an error. My account balance was $0 and my account was locked. I have tried contacting them and they finally sent me an email saying that they are investigating. My account is still locked!

RIP OFF!! I had $102.00 and tried to cash out then my account was locked and would not let me sign back in after contacting customer support several time before informing me they had deactivated my account and would not give me my money. Don’t waste your time on this survey site.

My account just says “there’s a problem with your account contact customer service. I contact through email and get nothing but a generic response. I built up money then when trying to redeem it all at once, they shut me out. But has not acknowledged that. They just keep sending an email saying wait 48 hours.

Quick thoughts cannot be trusted! They will deactivate your account for no apparent reason and you lose all of your earnings ! The customer support is a Absolutely ridiculous and worthless! It’s pretty much like having no support at all! They will reply with the most generic emails possible and let’s not forget the length of time it takes for them to reply! The email will accuse you of either having several accounts or not giving accurate information! However , they never actually tell you what did! I find it funny that everyone’s emails always read the same thing! YOU WILL GET LOCKED OUT FOR NOTHING!!!Do not fall for this! They do not like those who do well due to the fact they do not want to pay out even though they’ve gotten paid from those surveys!
I advise you to go online and read all of the complaints from individuals who have been locked out from their accounts! The complaints are numerous! It’s absolutely ridiculous !

My account was suspended for NO reason. The initial email I received let me know that it was a system update and a problem on their end. Said to contact them if I still couldn’t log in. I waited 2 days and still couldn’t. I send another help request. Lo and behold, “Abigail” tells me I violate their tems of service. DO NOT TRUST THIS COMPANY..

Loved this app and wouldve given 5 stars, until I couldn’t log in anymore!! I’ve sent so many emails, trying to contact them about my log in problem, but to no avail. Not 1 answer back, not a word, totally ignored.

Way too slow with new offers, sometimes days at a time

I usually think of informative content as dull but necessary for learning. Interesting informational articles like this are rare. This material is informational without being boring and intimidating. Thank you.

I started using quick thoughts about 2 weeks ago, and love the concept.. 10 or 15 mins on average for $1.. who doesn’t like free money for a little bit of time? My only complaint is that it seems like the closer you get to $10 in rewards the harder it is to get surveys you “have a good fit” with.. other than that, great app!

I like this app !!! Its awesome getting paid to take surveys!!! The only down aide is you only get paid with Amazon gift cards…..
It would be grate if you had other gift card options like Walmart or jcpeny… I would love to give it 5 stars but for now its just 3

I have been using this app for a year and have received several gift cards, however, with one of the latest updates the app no longer allows me to sign in. I contacted customer service which suggested I delete the app and reinstall it. I did that, but still not able to use due to the sign in issue. I have banked $7.10 and have been unable to do anything with that money.

The Android system works so much better with this app. The iPhone app did not have mobile-optimized surveys and I had to abandon about six of them because I simply wasn’t able to continue. I’m very happy with the Android version, though!

My hobby is making money online and I always dream that someday I will be able to renovate my house with the money I earn from QuickThoughts.

Earning iTunes cash is always welcome. Sometimes it takes awhile to get to the $10 needed to cash in but nothing beats free money.
