I’ve used a lot (and I do mean a lot) of survey sites. Since my day job isn’t your regular nine to five, I’ve got quite a bit of time to try and test different survey sites.

I thought I had seen all the different permutations of survey sites, until I found Tellwut. Most sites are one-sided: they provide the surveys, and you take them. But Tellwut is different. On their site, users can earn points by taking surveys, and creating them, as well!

This is a pretty unique feature. Needless to say, I was intrigued. So I gave it a go for a few months. Here’s my review on the site. If you’re curious about Tellwut, I hope this article proves informative to you!

An introduction to Tellwut

Tellwut (short for “Tell us what you think”) is pretty new - it was founded in 2017. But despite its newbie status, it already has over 400,000 members, and has posted over 19,000 surveys. Based on the numbers alone, this is a legit site.

How Do You Earn on Tellwut?

On Tellwut, users take surveys, and earn points as a result. They can then trade these points for gift cards or other goodies on the Tellwut site. But it also lets users earn by contributing their own surveys.

This was a bit strange to me at first. I understood the basic survey site set-up. A company would hire the site to help them conduct market research via surveys. The site would then incentivize users such as us to take these surveys (usually through cash and gifts). But why would a site pay us to create surveys? What’s in it for them?

I did a bit of research and learned that companies also need help creating surveys. In effect, Tellwut crowd-sources the creation of these surveys. The company pays Tellwut for that, and Tellwut, in turn, rewards us with points.

How Much Can I Earn on Tellwut?

That depends on the amount of time you put in. The more surveys you take, the more you will earn. But the good thing is that there isn’t a limit to the number of surveys you can take (some sites may put a daily or weekly cap on the amount you can complete). Also, Tellwut updates its list of surveys constantly, so you’ll always have something to do on the site.

Each survey you take will earn you anywhere from 5 to 10 points. Answering a public survey pay is pretty good: from 25 to 2000 points.

You also earn more points for actually creating a survey. Each approved survey you create will get you 10 to 20 points.

Tellwut provides bonus points for one-time tasks, such as signing up (100 bonus points) and providing additional personal information (200 bonus points). Each friend you refer to Tellwut gets you 25 bonus points.

4,000 points are equivalent to $10.

How Can I Use My Earnings?

Your points can be used to avail of gift cards and products available on the site. Note that it takes 10 to 15 days to process your orders (not including shipping).

There’s no cash payout option, which I find disappointing. Survey sites should give you that option, since I’m willing to bet that a large number of members would prefer real money. In effect, Tellwut “forces” you to buy stuff on their site. I won’t consider this a red flag, but it’s up to you to decide whether this is a deal breaker or not.

Who Can Sign-Up for Tellwut?

Currently, only residents of the United States and Canada may join the site.

Tellwut: The Pros and Cons

I want to provide you with balanced, unbiased opinions about Tellwut. Now that I’ve explained how the site works and how you can earn, here’s a break-down of the things I liked… and the things I didn’t like.

What I liked about Tellwut
  • The name. I know it’s superficial, but it’s a great name. Wut wut.

  • You get rewards for doing common activities, like signing up, adding your personal info, providing your address, and referring friends.

  • You can create your own surveys. That’s a pretty cool spin on the survey site concept. (Note that you’re limited to posting two surveys a week)

  • Surveys on Tellwut don’t take very long to complete.

  • Since surveys are user-created, you can expect to find some fun and unique surveys.

  • You don’t have to wait for emails matching you with certain surveys. You can simply log in to the site and start taking whatever survey catches your attention.

  • There’s no limit to the number of surveys you can take. The number of surveys and rewards you make us literally up to you!

  • Community. You can chat with other members, which gives you a good idea of how much other people are earning on the site.

  • The site holds contests regularly. Contests are a great way to build goodwill between the site and its members.
What I Didn’t Like About Tellwut
  • High minimum payout amount: $10, which is equivalent to about 4,000 points. It’ll take you a while to reach that minimum, especially if you’re a casual user.

  • No cash payouts. You can only use the money you earn to avail of gift cards or any of the stuff being sold on the website.

  • Limited scope. Doing surveys is the only way to earn on Tellwut. On other sites, you can watch videos, download apps, and do other tasks. Trying to rack up points on Tellwut can get monotonous.

  • Tellwut is a bit ban-happy. Fortunately, this has never happened to me. But I’ve read quite a few comments from members online who’ve had their accounts banned. This really sucks because getting banned means you forfeit your points (and all the hard work that went into accumulating them)

  • The site is only open for residents of the United States and Canada. And only one member per household is allowed. This limited scope is strange to me, because I know survey sites make money from advertisers. More members from more locations mean more advertising revenue.
The Verdict: Legit or Scam?

Tellwut is legit! I think the survey system is pretty awesome, and I liked how they were open to user-created surveys. (Company-generated surveys can sometimes get repetitive)

The site is a bit limited in scope - only residents of the US and Canada may apply, and you can’t redeem your points as cash. If you decide to give Tellwut a try, keep those things in mind. But personally, I had a satisfactory experience even with those limitations.

Here’s hoping that it expands its rewards programs soon - I’d hate to see a site like this stagnate.

Ive been a member of Tellwut since 2012, Ive made $200 from them. I have always chose Amazon giftcards. When I first joined them they actually sent you a physical Amazon giftcard, but now they send the code. I doubt they will ever have paypal as an option, so far 6 years later they still havent added it

While tellwut calls themselves a survey site, I would say thats a bit missleading, what they call surveys are just multiple choice questions, but the good thing is you dont get disqualified from them.

Now with that said, they DO have surveys like we all have grown to know as well, which sometimes we get disqualified for.

You do need to complete a regular survey every couple of weeks, otherwise the amount of questions you get will dwindle. Once you have completed a survey then you get more questions again. You will get about 15-20 questions a day, which range from 5-10 points. You can create questions which pay you 25 points. Surveys very in point amounts

For me its an easy site, BUT the comment section following every question, should have moderators, as people can get carried away with their posts. They do have filters that filter out the bad words

Great post! You were right on point about every aspect of Tellwut, except for the part about it being founded in 2017. I've been a member since May, 2016. I just recently cashed out a $10 Amazon e-gift card (proof of payment attached) but it took me almost four months this last time to reach the 4,000 point threshold. I used to create more content in the beginning but it's a little tricky because you can't post about a topic that has been submitted before and a couple of times my submissions were suspended for whatever reason. That's really aggravating, especially if you put a lot of thought, time, and effort into it. Other than that, I use it more as a filler site and enjoy being in on the pulse of current events and answering the user-created content.

Agree with you on the need for moderators in the comments section. I've seen my share of surly remarks in the comments section of Tellwut. It's really a bummer because I like reading what other people have to think and say. Just have to ingnore & filter out the bad stuff!

I have been using Tellwut for a long time now. It does take a while to get enough points to cashout. It's hard to get qualified for a survey somedays.

Tellwut is one of my top three favorite survey sites. They have the best surveys. Their fast, quick to answer, on the polls, my favorite, and their surveys are not bad at all. They pay quick, and ive never had any problem with recieving it. So Tellwut is legit and i give two thumbs up.

Tell us wut you think! (See what I did there?)

Legit..... I have recently joined Tellwut; think end of June 2018 or beginning of July 2018. My favorite thing about this site is being a voter on fun surveys. I like getting emails telling available surveys, though most of the time I don't get, it does help me check periodically for fun surveys available and while I'm there I check out a few surveys. I mostly get 50pt or 75pt surveys. Tellwut, as most may know, have been offering a bonus of 50pts for every survey completed in addition to survey pts, celebrating Canada. I have made about 300 in bonus pts...yah! It helped me make enough pts to buy a $10 Amazon card. To my surprise they mail your first redemption. Not sure how long it will be, but they say give them 15 days to deliver. I myself like e-cards. Still I am very pleased with the site. I even dabbled with making a survey but have not gotten a reply back yet. It was fun to do all in all. Look at thumbnails for PROOF OF PURCHASE! Fun site!

I’ve used a lot (and I do mean a lot) of survey sites. Since my day job isn’t your regular nine to five, I’ve got quite a bit of time to try and test different survey sites.

I thought I had seen all the different permutations of survey sites, until I found Tellwut. Most sites are one-sided: they provide the surveys, and you take them. But Tellwut is different. On their site, users can earn points by taking surveys, and creating them, as well!

This is a pretty unique feature. Needless to say, I was intrigued. So I gave it a go for a few months. Here’s my review on the site. If you’re curious about Tellwut, I hope this article proves informative to you!

An introduction to Tellwut

Tellwut (short for “Tell us what you think”) is pretty new - it was founded in 2017. But despite its newbie status, it already has over 400,000 members, and has posted over 19,000 surveys. Based on the numbers alone, this is a legit site.

How Do You Earn on Tellwut?

On Tellwut, users take surveys, and earn points as a result. They can then trade these points for gift cards or other goodies on the Tellwut site. But it also lets users earn by contributing their own surveys.

This was a bit strange to me at first. I understood the basic survey site set-up. A company would hire the site to help them conduct market research via surveys. The site would then incentivize users such as us to take these surveys (usually through cash and gifts). But why would a site pay us to create surveys? What’s in it for them?

I did a bit of research and learned that companies also need help creating surveys. In effect, Tellwut crowd-sources the creation of these surveys. The company pays Tellwut for that, and Tellwut, in turn, rewards us with points.

How Much Can I Earn on Tellwut?

That depends on the amount of time you put in. The more surveys you take, the more you will earn. But the good thing is that there isn’t a limit to the number of surveys you can take (some sites may put a daily or weekly cap on the amount you can complete). Also, Tellwut updates its list of surveys constantly, so you’ll always have something to do on the site.

Each survey you take will earn you anywhere from 5 to 10 points. Answering a public survey pay is pretty good: from 25 to 2000 points.

You also earn more points for actually creating a survey. Each approved survey you create will get you 10 to 20 points.

Tellwut provides bonus points for one-time tasks, such as signing up (100 bonus points) and providing additional personal information (200 bonus points). Each friend you refer to Tellwut gets you 25 bonus points.

4,000 points are equivalent to $10.

How Can I Use My Earnings?

Your points can be used to avail of gift cards and products available on the site. Note that it takes 10 to 15 days to process your orders (not including shipping).

There’s no cash payout option, which I find disappointing. Survey sites should give you that option, since I’m willing to bet that a large number of members would prefer real money. In effect, Tellwut “forces” you to buy stuff on their site. I won’t consider this a red flag, but it’s up to you to decide whether this is a deal breaker or not.

Who Can Sign-Up for Tellwut?

Currently, only residents of the United States and Canada may join the site.

Tellwut: The Pros and Cons

I want to provide you with balanced, unbiased opinions about Tellwut. Now that I’ve explained how the site works and how you can earn, here’s a break-down of the things I liked… and the things I didn’t like.

What I liked about Tellwut
  • The name. I know it’s superficial, but it’s a great name. Wut wut.

  • You get rewards for doing common activities, like signing up, adding your personal info, providing your address, and referring friends.

  • You can create your own surveys. That’s a pretty cool spin on the survey site concept. (Note that you’re limited to posting two surveys a week)

  • Surveys on Tellwut don’t take very long to complete.

  • Since surveys are user-created, you can expect to find some fun and unique surveys.

  • You don’t have to wait for emails matching you with certain surveys. You can simply log in to the site and start taking whatever survey catches your attention.

  • There’s no limit to the number of surveys you can take. The number of surveys and rewards you make us literally up to you!

  • Community. You can chat with other members, which gives you a good idea of how much other people are earning on the site.

  • The site holds contests regularly. Contests are a great way to build goodwill between the site and its members.
What I Didn’t Like About Tellwut
  • High minimum payout amount: $10, which is equivalent to about 4,000 points. It’ll take you a while to reach that minimum, especially if you’re a casual user.

  • No cash payouts. You can only use the money you earn to avail of gift cards or any of the stuff being sold on the website.

  • Limited scope. Doing surveys is the only way to earn on Tellwut. On other sites, you can watch videos, download apps, and do other tasks. Trying to rack up points on Tellwut can get monotonous.

  • Tellwut is a bit ban-happy. Fortunately, this has never happened to me. But I’ve read quite a few comments from members online who’ve had their accounts banned. This really sucks because getting banned means you forfeit your points (and all the hard work that went into accumulating them)

  • The site is only open for residents of the United States and Canada. And only one member per household is allowed. This limited scope is strange to me, because I know survey sites make money from advertisers. More members from more locations mean more advertising revenue.
The Verdict: Legit or Scam?

Tellwut is legit! I think the survey system is pretty awesome, and I liked how they were open to user-created surveys. (Company-generated surveys can sometimes get repetitive)

The site is a bit limited in scope - only residents of the US and Canada may apply, and you can’t redeem your points as cash. If you decide to give Tellwut a try, keep those things in mind. But personally, I had a satisfactory experience even with those limitations.

Here’s hoping that it expands its rewards programs soon - I’d hate to see a site like this stagnate.

Your Turn

This is my review based on my own experiences using Tellwut. Now it’s your turn to share! Have you tried creating surveys on Tellwut? Did they get approved, and how much did you earn?

Tell us wut you think! (See what I did there?)

I used to do Tellwut until I heard bad reviews. Lately, I have been hearing good reviews. I am thinking I am going to retry Tellwut again.
