QuickThoughts is just such an interesting nightmare.

I’ve been using QuickThoughts without many issues for a few years, besides the random albeit temporary ban. I have an Android phone and obviously have been just cashing out Amazon gift cards, but a few weeks ago I was informed that I had cashed out an iTunes gift card (which isn’t even an option). I couldn’t request a password change, so I directly contacted them and they just said since there was suspicious activity on my account I was banned.

I guess I’m just bitching because QuickThoughts is run by apes.

  1. Someone from a completely different IP and device redeems a gift card and instead of emailing you to reset your password they ban you. Lol ok.

  2. When I have problems with them I just repeatedly contact them until I actually get someone helpful. There are at least a couple of people there that actually know what they are doing. The rest are doing their best to stop them…

  3. They changed the pay from $2 to $1 and I basically stopped using it unless the study is like 2-5 minutes lol They are crazy if they think I’m going to do a study for 25 minutes to an hour for $1.

      1. I only started using recently but highest I’ve seen is $1.50. I’d say it’s kind of 80/20 for me betwene $1.00 and $0.40 surveys

      2. During my last ban I experimented with making new accounts and such to get around it. I noticed that if I said I was a black indian, I would only get $2-$3 surveys.

    1. I tend to only do the 15min or less surveys for $1. Of course sometimes they are full of shit and that 5min survey is actually a 30min one. Overall its not much money but havent found a better paying one out there. Most survey sites DQ 90% of surveys I do and a lot of times do it when I already put 15min into one so gave up on those. Quickthoughts for me DQ a LOT less

  4. I’ve emailed QT about half a dozen times for different things. They never give straight forward answers but they have always been polite (knock on wood).

  5. After everything is said and done, i could only average 2 dollars an hour on most of these types of things, just wasnt worth it for me

  6. I started using it recently, and aside from being booted from 2 surveys at the end of them and not getting paid it’s been fairly smooth. It can be buggy though. Also many of the surveys are 20 minutes for $1 which just isn’t worth it. I’ve further noticed I’ll go in and see maybe 4 or 5 surveys for $1, and then when I finish that the other $1 will be gone and there will be say 2 or 3 surveys for $0.40. After that I typically won’t be able to get another survey for hours
