First time writing a review. Watch for the “rebates”
by Gayloardd1958 on 2020/03/20 18:05
Things were going well for awhile and I would use the surkus app to go to free events. I don’t go out as much anymore and noticed the “offers” section so I started doing that. Things were great for awhile and I was recommending it to friends letting them know it was “legit”. It turns out amazon is on to them and will delete the reviews or not let people post them anymore. When I went back to show surkus, they didn’t care much. Now I’m out over $100. Even though a lot of the products were good, I still didn’t get my money back & I wrote the reviews.
No paid events anymore
by dancebodybabe724 on 2020/03/19 00:50
Most of the events I get invited to are super wack. They just want you to buy the product off amazon and write a review about it.
Don’t get scammed!
by :(dontlike on 2020/03/15 18:07
Incentivized reviews are illegal on Amazon even if they are honest. Amazon will flag your account, delete your reviews, and you will not get reimbursed for product. The app mostly advertises that you can attend events for free, but there are never any events.
Identify theft beware
by Arya Stark101 on 2020/03/11 23:22
Surkus representatives will ask to send a copy of your ID by email DO NOT DO IT! This is totally illegal and they will presure you on doing so or they wont pay you after you spend your money to buy items to review and get refund. Surkus is a total scam beware!
Surkus is a scam beware!
by Erica nadal on 2020/03/11 21:59
They make you order items with your own money with the promise to refund you when you review. Then the items are flagged and you can’t review them. They will use this excuse to then ban your account and leave you hanging with hundreds of dollars of purchase. When you ask with you have been banned they will make up lies like you have more than one account. This happened to me and to my friend. Stay away from this scam do not buy anything to review.
Not enough events in Miami!

Best App for Events and Offers
by SCG iTunes on 2020/03/06 22:29
I love the events I get attend for free. And the rewards I get back for different offers for me.
New update with 18 hours time limit is terrible
by Mufflejuju on 2020/02/17 20:39
It doesn’t allow us enough time. I know it’s really easy and quick to purchase items but sometimes you have work all day and go straight to sleep and doesn’t allow you to do it the next day. It’s really dumb. It’s not always easy to see your notifications for the app as well. I missed many offers by accident! At least allow 48 hours.
Best event app
by InstaE on 2020/02/13 16:35
This is one of the best event apps ever. You are able to get into movie screening or events that are fun and exciting.
Free stuff and free events
by TFweezy on 2020/02/10 02:22
Why not get products for free and free admission to events? Definitely a worthwhile app. Haven’t noticed any glitches or suspected any spyware. Runs smoothly. I check and use it regularly for the hookup. Check it out
Best App Ever!!!
by AHUH12 on 2020/02/09 20:47
I LOVE the Surkus app and enjoy all of the events and offers! The app is easy to navigate and the content is perfectly curated just for me. I get to experience so many cool products and events. It’s absolutely AWESOME!!! LOVE IT!!!
Do Fun Things and Get Cool Stuff!
by Renee CM on 2020/02/09 17:28
Surkus always has concerts or events that are fun and I’m always stunned they’re free and also great deals on other cool things especially health and wellness items. It’s great for an inexpensive date night which every struggling artist or budget savvy person can appreciate.
Scam garbage
by surkus not good on 2020/01/25 23:45
Super annoying app. Supposed to have a pdf ticket sent to my email, but after check in you need to wait for someone from Surkus to manually review it in order to get a ticket. The review takes more than an hour, you have to wait before you can get in. Wasted so so so much time, not worth it.
No privacy!!!
by Layy!!! on 2020/01/03 03:12
I just uploaded the app by an add on Instagram. I read the reviews thought it would be a fun app, buttttt the only thing that app should fix is the ‘guest list’, it should be optional if you want to see whose on the guest vs. if I want to be seen on the guest list. No privacy!!! If you don’t care, then this shouldn’t be an issue for you.
Credits Take Too Long
by Misterprefect14 on 2019/12/14 22:36
It takes days longer than the 48 hour promise period to be reimbursed for the credits apart of the offers.
Great way to try new things
by heather.21a on 2019/12/11 18:57
Surkus is a great way to try new things and get refunded for every day purchases. So far, I’ve done about 5 events and they’ve all been very smooth and I’ve been refunded the price immediately. Surkus normally gives you the full rebate of the product and then an extra bonus amount, which is nice because it gives the extra incentive to follow through and thoroughly review the products. The only thing I don’t enjoy is how competitive the products are. I have VIP status and I wasn’t selected for the last 8 events before I finally got to do one. I feel like the VIP status should give you first priority to events. There aren’t many VIP only events so I don’t really get what the point of being a vip member is. Also, there aren’t that many in-person events in the Chicagoland area which I would like to see more of.

It was so much fun! Sirkus definitely hooked it up today!!!! For all my 80s lovers you guys should come on a Thursday it’s the best!!!
Garbage app
by Sabbriinnaaa on 2019/12/03 14:46
Won’t stop emailing me. Can’t unsubscribe just has a link to download the app again where the unsubscribe option is!
Getting access to events and products?
by Simplyswtt on 2019/12/01 22:20
Love the ease of using this app. It’s great to be able to get exclusive access to events that are sold out and to be able to try products in exchange for a review.
No Las Vegas events?
by HappyLandlord on 2019/12/01 16:15
“No events near you” in Las Vegas. If the app doesn’t find vegas events then it clearly has a ways to go before it’s useful. Update: Received emails daily, and when I tried to unsubscribe I was required to download the app again! Not only do the app not meet expectations, but it’s user experience is poorly developed too.
Agist app
by MD/SD on 2019/11/27 04:03
Recently downloaded this app per friends request. We attended one event & i was going to recommend this app to my friends....however... noticed my friend who is younger was getting offer to the particular event & was telling me to sign up but I told him they were not showing up on my feed. He even sent me the link & I've got a notice that i am not “selected” for the particular event. We figured must be the age bracket ... Will be getting rid off this app & making sure all of the business women who buy their own drinks do not download this app. Thank you.
Don’t download this BS
by YoureABitchSnapchatCreators on 2019/11/21 16:49
This app promises the world and some change and hardly ever delivers. Downloaded because it said we were guaranteed tickets to post Malone concert and turns out it was a hoax. I don’t believe in getting people to join download and give up secure information just to feel a sense of lost hope. Only way to delete is to email support which tells you all that’s needed to know. Won’t be surprised if we hear a class action lawsuit coming to this company soon. Be blessed
Don’t bother
by Biampas on 2019/11/19 20:14
Waste of app! false advertising..... throughout a week app was advertised on Instagram and Facebook for is post Malone tickets .... a day before u get a notification u didn’t get chosen 🥴 Waste of app just wants you to download for other events not worth the excitement
Not functioning
by Adriee97 on 2019/11/19 19:50
Cool app but I sent an invite to my boyfriend and he accepted and downloaded the app and nothing is showing up on his invite list nor is it adjusting me that he accepted on my app either like it's supposed to according to the FAQs. Please help!!

Amateur Hour
by LusciousLuscia on 2019/11/13 22:09
Downloaded app. Tried to sign up (not login). Keep getting error message that my email or password is incorrect. How can that be if I’m trying to sign up and have never downloaded this app before? I shudder to think just how deplorable the experiences will be if my first 10 seconds are this craptastic.
Misleading and Scammy
by MDW2090 on 2019/11/10 01:49
Don’t waste your time.
AMAZING!!!! IM OBSESSED
by Moonstar7278876 on 2019/11/07 22:30
I NEVER write reviews for apps but Surkus deserves it! I’ve gotten to try some really cool products for basically FREE and I joined not even 3 weeks ago. You get the cost of products refunded to you at a 100% rate, there is NO catch. I haven’t taken advantage of the events side of the app too much, but they also have really cool invites to fun local events for FREE as well. I’ve never experienced anything like this and I am literally recommending this app to whoever will listen
Good app
by Arch13674377899 on 2019/11/02 15:56
They used to have more events. Now it’s mainly just product offers which is still nice but I do miss the events.
Fun events and cool products to test!
by ingaidol on 2019/11/02 00:30
This app is so fun for me. It gives me ideas for things to do. What I like most is the product testing. I check the app daily for new events and cool products to try.
My favorite App!
by PhoenixRising8 on 2019/10/29 02:57
I love Surkus! I’ve gone to so many amazing events that typically cost between $20-$200 -For Free! I’ve also gotten so many amazing things from Amazon that I love from Amazon, Eaze- I love this App. Easy to use- I refer as many people as I could.
Can't even set it up
by pagan butterfly on 2019/10/04 01:56
Keeps showing an error message that I need to enter my email but doesn't have a space to enter an email address!!!!!
Near by
by kev6785388 on 2019/10/01 00:54
Wish their was shows near Santa Ana
Disappointed is an understatement.
by Bekl89 on 2019/08/30 02:08
So I’ve been with Surkus since February 2016.... this used to be the most amazing app. I was an ambassador for most of the time. I met so many amazing people whom I’m still friends with and I was able to go to all kinds of amazing events and get paid to be there! But in the last year it’s basically been nothing but ads for me to buy stuff and make a post to my social media. And it’s all spammy. It’s literally nothing like it was the first year- two years I was apart of this app. I’m honestly very disappointed. It’s basically a completely different app and has nothing to do with what it was when I first joined. How do I delete my account???
Troubleshooting error
by allniknameztak3n on 2019/08/18 21:57
This app pays for you to attend some events but later when you try to withdraw the money a troubleshooting error message will appear stating there was an issue with the transfer and to contact paypal. I’ve received payments else were from paypal and have had no issue. Surkus should really check their pay out forms.
This app is really cool!
by Haithammou94 on 2019/08/15 04:10
I had the chance to attend 1975 concert for free through, such an amazing experience!
Game-changing!
by ajar001 on 2019/08/15 01:28
Been using it nearly every week for 2 years and I’ve seen so many cool events I wouldn’t be able to go to otherwise, and even got to try some new products! Made moving to a new city so much easier, and I’ve had a 100% seamless experience with it on every activity.
Not worth it anymore..
by mchellesopinion on 2019/07/30 23:05
This has became a invite to events/clubs that would already be free. And discounts that are not worth it. This app used to be good, there was paid promotional model, castings, crowd and products that again ALL paid. Now it’s not worth it just basically “Get Access”. Sad that isn’t a good way to get work anymore. Nice idea but didn’t work I guess
hit or miss
by Kairshe on 2019/07/09 22:55
sometimes interesting events are posted but lately all it’s been is bark box subscriptions, candy box subscriptions etc. i am not and never will be interested in paying for or getting a little discount for any sort of subscription box. you end up literally spending money. i initially joined for cool events and even when i was a VIP i got a bunch of lame things sent to me that required me spending money. kind of defeats the purpose of the app :/
scam
by scorpiobby on 2019/06/28 05:41
after i made my account i started getting random emails & phone calls. Within 5 minutes of linking my instagram account with the app my account got hacked and my password was changed. DO NOT give them personal information
Not what it used to be
by KellySh on 2019/06/20 23:18
This app used to be really cool for local events. I’ve had a blast at some events I’ve attended but since the last month or so it seems like the event invites have stopped and it’s a bunch of online services (like barkbox, wine club, gainful) that reward you $5 for signing up for a membership that will cost you $40. It used to be worth it and now it’s just advertising.
Discrimination central
by JacksFlowers on 2019/06/15 01:54
Surkus is a scam app that disguises itself well by allowing a few people actually get to do what it markets itself as. It is a data mine that is selling your information and making money off of falsely promoting things on amazon. It also will offer you discounts on tickets to things you didn’t get selected to go to for free. They obviously discriminate against race and gender. Ambassadors rate you after you do go to events. Being VIP means nothing. If you want events, just go on eventbrite and search your city for free things :)
Spam
by Sarah Sixpack on 2019/05/25 11:05
It used to be a great way to find something to do. Now, it's just spammy garbage used to advertise new-to-market goods and services.
Not getting my money :/
by RaiiEzzy on 2019/05/09 06:14
I got paid for 2 events and when I tried to cash out I keep getting an error. I tried cashing out with two different PayPal accounts and it still won’t let me. The events are nice actually. I enjoy using the app. I just wish I could get paid for the products I bought and reviewed.
Wack Fyre Fest Style Events
by jaszly on 2019/03/31 01:18
I was selected for a T Mobile Event that boasted open bar, food and celebrity guests LOL. After waiting in line for an hour, they told us no one else was getting in but we could wait and see if some people came out. So once a bunch of people walked out they let us in. There was no one from surkus anywhere in sight to check in with, the bar had NO BAR DRINKS beyond water and diet sprite, there was absolutely NO FOOD and no signs that there was ever food present. and I guess the celebrity guest was a random no name band. Was I paid for the event I was told I be paid for attending? No. Because no one from surkus was anywhere to be found. Considering I lost 2.5 hours of my life I’ll never get back and $30 for an Uber to and fro seems like I came out worse than I started
Use to be good
by JdSquared-1 on 2019/02/15 06:22
Events now are all junk. Mostly public events they get paid for you to show up to and you get nothing. VIP is a joke also, hope it improves back to what it use to be.
Great app but...
by MusicScoot on 2019/02/12 21:55
I think that this is a great app, but some events I get info for are too far for me to travel to and I'd really like to be able to search specific cities for events.
Wah Wah
by MarcelAKAMouse on 2019/01/30 05:37
Not a single event in all of Reno and the surrounding area? Wah Wah! 😢 That’s strange since we normally have tons of events going on all the time in Reno, Carson, Virginia City, and Tahoe!
Pink event
by Fire Dimand on 2019/01/27 07:08
I really love the pink event, the food, and entertainment was great.
Can’t get pass a point
by annorying on 2019/01/20 16:12
Can’t get pass a point to get into the app I thinking it referral code should’ve been sent to email so I can get pass this point I can’t I haven’t gotten a email for that
I’d like to see all events around
by Bad luck drunk on 2019/01/16 00:45
This app says events picked for you! I can’t even see what are other events around. No major listings too. Needs a lot of work.
Surkus
by Donna Diosa on 2019/01/11 03:00
Love this app and events!!
Nothing local
by lmrn424 on 2019/01/11 02:48
The only events I get are 2.5 hours away in NYC.
It won’t let me sign up
by vonnie6492 on 2019/01/10 14:37
Every time I try to start an account it tells me error but doesn’t say what the error is.
Vip doesnt get you anything
by Bdcbklobgs on 2019/01/08 01:11
One thing I do not understand about VIP is that it doesnt give me any of the cool event offers I did when I first started. I used to get free entry of a club w/ bottle service and now I don’t get that at all. I’m not understanding the point of VIP if there’s nothing to offer....?
Transportation
by ElyssaRH on 2019/01/05 06:33
Needs to include some parking deals or discounts to make transportation easier for participants
First time
by MrsLee5 on 2018/12/30 05:02
Easy as123! No lines No waiting Excellent show Highly recommended!
Used to be good , now garbage
by 2good2bxxxxxx on 2018/12/17 11:54
This app used to be great, now they don’t pay you for anything, despite the fact they get paid for your presence. They fill the app with Public events you can just google And no more online stuff In short - save the space for another selfie and don’t bother
Not all events are paid! Still a great app btw😯
by bombbae_bay on 2018/12/11 11:59
Went to my first ever Surkus app event yesterday, Monday December 10th, 2018 at the Holiday Commission Party. Basically it was dedicated for small business owners celebrating their achievement, discussing with others small business bout their achievements ect... live music, live dj ect... information about the event was clear with the exception of the time and that it was not paid. I arrived 2 hours beforehand only to find out by the coordinator at the venue that the party did not start until 5:45. Luckily surkus support staff responded immediately (you can also message them on Instagram but they will most likely direct you to contact support staff). ANYWAY I HAD MY CAR TO CHILL IN, SPOKE TO THE SUPPORT STAFF TO INFORM THEM OF THE WRONG INFORMATION ECT🤭🤗🤗. Also I was under the impression that I would get paid. I did not, but however at least when you get paid it will say it on the event!! IF THERE IS THE PAYMENT INCLUDED IN THE DESCRIPTION OF AN EVENT YOU WOULD LIKE TO ATTEND TOO THAT MEANS ITS PAID!! But what I realized that we, Surkus critics are able to attend parties for Free, receive perks, and invite a plus one most of the time. We experience many kinds of events and basically if you think about now I also have experience as a “critic”!!! Thanks Surkus and I look forward to have fun, critique and enjoy all the events you throw at me.
I love SURKUS
by bobbiemlong on 2018/12/04 23:50
Best app ever! Seriously, I have had the best experiences. 10/10 would recommend.
Incredible events and experiences!
by beach party bump on 2018/11/15 23:55
I love using this app to discover events and activations nearby. They always have these awesome events and parks that i can’t seem to find anywhere else. Highly recommended!!
Eh
by That nickname is chosen 2 on 2018/11/04 04:55
Schedules change. We should be able to list our weekday preferences. More options would be nice too. Where are all the comedy shows? Besides an occasional concert the offerings aren’t that interesting.
This is the most fun I ever had with an app
by i look good in pink on 2018/11/01 22:10
I will admit I was skeptical about this app at first but now this is one of my top favorite apps I have on my phone. I met a lot of cool people and attended cool events I wish could give this app a million stars ⭐️ Had to drop this to 3 stars
Just Downloaded App & Attended my 1st CONCERT , same Day
by High_Price on 2018/10/31 03:15
This app is the BOMB but don't just believe me come see for yourself !
Love the free events
by Zsahoney on 2018/10/30 06:31
I have only been a member for two months and i have been to some amazing events. And they all free access. I love to use it when traveling to various cities and looking for something free to do
Surkus
by SuperDean86 on 2018/10/26 23:40
If the event requests you to have a friend sign up to Surkus in order to have the chance at going, you will not be selected. Don’t waste your time on these. Your friends won’t appreciate the spam, especially when none of you get chosen.
WHAT A FUN TIME
by Captain Conscious on 2018/10/15 13:59
I truly enjoyed my experience at AFV. A tip to all if you go dressed up they have a contest where they give two winners a $100 so if you go really dress up like it’s New Year’s Eve and you just may win. 😊
Love this app
by Summer Hathaway on 2018/10/10 22:35
Got free tickets to a festival which was awesome!
Friendly Universe
by Barbedwired on 2018/09/28 23:18
These sunglasses are amazing. I love how efficient the founder was when it comes to answering emails to questions or problems we run into.
Certain event selections
by Bean town sober on 2018/09/24 22:11
I have just joined and have done so about 2 weeks ago.. its a great app.. but i see that I'm interested in a-lot of events that i show interest for that I'm not selected.. what increases the odds? As not much shows up in my area of boston.. or when it does its immediately filled and i check daily almost hourly
Do you even get selected?
by Whitneya96 on 2018/09/23 17:20
I’ve had this app for 3 months, hit the “I’d like to go” button, and have not been selected to go to ANYTHING!!! Idk if anyone ever gets selected to do anything 🤷🏼‍♀️
Best life festival
by nosillaace on 2018/09/18 00:37
I love this App! I had a great time at my first event.
AMAZING!
by MR.LOVE 007 on 2018/09/15 19:56
Great App! Great Experience! Great Fun!
Amazing
by EllieRobinson on 2018/09/12 00:22
Love this app so much it’s always gives me awesome invites to event going on around me.
More tickets for giveaways
by Kingmarty50 on 2018/09/09 02:02
Also If we don’t go I feel like it shouldn’t penalize us
Remove me from the email list.
by aw2638491 on 2018/09/08 20:30
I downloaded this app for my trip to LA, then deleted it when I went home. But the company is still sending me emails for events. And I can’t change my email preferences without downloading the app again…
What’s the point of being VIP if you aren’t getting selected?
by Bumbstahdani on 2018/09/05 09:44
I used to love this app when i first downloaded it, but now I'm thinking about deleting it. Lately the chances of getting into events like (sports games, concerts, festivals) are slim to none. I’m starting to think that your “rating” doesn’t even matter anymore (i’m at an 893). My hunch is that they are saving these exclusive events for people who have a massive following on IG so they can further promote the app + gain more people to download it. The only invites i’ve been getting lately are clubs where —if you read most of the comments on here, are sex based trying to fill club crowds with females. Tbh, i’ve only went to three cool events since i’ve been on here. Oh well, it was fun while it lasted i guess :/
A really great App!!
by marinelife59 on 2018/08/29 23:00
This App is really awesome! There are opportunities for many different kinds of events. Museums, Concerts, Fitness, Food Festivals, Comedy Shows, Movies, Studio Events, Pre-screening new Movies, etc... some compensate for attendance. The only reason I gave it a 4 star versus a 5 star is because most events are in LA County. It would be awesome if more events would be available in Orange County.
No complaints
by sskelsey on 2018/08/25 02:04
The app does exactly what it says. If I ever have any issues or problems I email them and they fix the issue. I love the app and sometimes the events are pretty cool. Sometimes I wish they would give you more time to respond for events being that people have busy lives and aren’t always looking at their phones. But all in all, I do like the app and it has a lot a great potential.
Dope opportunities
by Tresrare_nico on 2018/08/21 05:45
Surkus is dope man. You get into places for cheaper or free & have a great time. Dope app
More selections
by Gangsta Goddess on 2018/08/17 15:01
This app is pretty cool I just wish they would give more of a variety of selection. The preference section is not usable so in turn the app is recommended a lot of the same events.
Surkus
by Capucine_Fit_Chick on 2018/08/17 03:48
Awesome !
Rating stays the same even after responding
by estefaniiie on 2018/08/16 02:21
I respond to invites and my rating has stayed the same. This is causing me not to get selected for events. Please fix ASAP!!!
Scammers that won’t let you delete a profile
by Nick from Pasadena on 2018/08/15 18:56
The events are awful. The rewards are awful. They won’t let you delete a profile in the app and their email system doesn’t work. And the app “conveniently” stopped showing me notifications when I was getting close to VIP. So 8 months of using it and now my score is terrible after a weekend of no messages when they spammed me with 40 events I never was notified of on my phone. Also pretty sure they sell phone numbers to telemarketers when they collect your data. My whole office started using Surkus right before we all started to be bombarded with phone scammers.
This app has gone downhill
by Hanna312111 on 2018/08/13 20:47
I used to use this app all the time but the company has changed quickly and not for the better. You cant even reach customer service anymore except for specific hours and days and when you do they arent polite and helpful. They don't care about their users anymore. At all
Exciting App
by Jesus1969! on 2018/08/13 17:51
I’m enjoying get out & about in the City 🌃! Although. If I want to cancel my Event: I can’t seem to find the Cancel feature on the app. Thanks for all the fun!
Cuco
by Vnsamrqz on 2018/08/11 06:53
Cuco was tight but wish we could have been closer but then again it was free so thanks surkus you a true a fam
Went to a film, got sent away
by Ilikemoney87 on 2018/08/09 17:19
Person in charge said they had enough people after I drove all the way there then told I wouldn’t get an pay & I arrived before the time on the app. I as well as several others got turned away which was very upsetting & inconsiderate.
Fun, Easy, Fast
by AceAvalon on 2018/08/09 06:13
I was referred to this by a friend and was immediately intrigued. Great events big and small! I’ve already made reservations at multiple sites and am going out on a regular basis. Awesome experience! Highly recommend! This is a life changing app!
Fun things to do!
by excellent auto movies on 2018/08/05 21:31
Family fun things to do around Los Angeles that are different than your normal day-to-day activities, but you also get a little pocket money

Best platform ever
by madisonfiore on 2018/08/03 15:58
This is a game changer! I love using this app. Easy, fun, and FREE!
This app is next level!
by nick litty on 2018/07/28 04:34
Just what my girl and i needed! Vip invites, free access, art, music , food! Best app yet
I like this app
by Wildsamfierce on 2018/07/27 00:42
It’s a great app to find out about events and also make some extra cash.
Lowering rating
by dianadancelife on 2018/07/24 18:15
I like to use this app sometimes even though they are usually paying 5-7 times less for parties than promoters. But the bad thing is you can build your member rating for a long time and get that VIP status but if you won’t respond for 2 invitations it will drop so significantly that you will need to build it for a long time again. I understand drop when you “nonshow” but for not responding it doesn’t feel right. Sometimes I don’t use the app for a month or more and after that I’m usually with so low rating that I cannot get any good invitations. If they won’t drop rating for “not responding “ I’ll give them 4 stars.
Crazy Fun!!
by Carmelbombshell on 2018/07/24 02:04
Love going to events via Surkus app it’s so much fun. Don’t miss out on the best fun of your life!!!
Rethink rating method.
by S.Keri-Ann on 2018/07/23 01:06
Say you have another job and you’re unable to respond to EVERY single invite in time, I don’t think it’s fair to lower your member rating.
App not working
by GraceU on 2018/07/21 22:33
I can’t see my booker events anymore nor am I able to decline an event. The app used to work just fine but not anymore.
Scammy app
by RandumbSoCoYCgaL on 2018/07/21 19:04
I used this app to get tickets to Ozy Fest in NYC and it was an awful bait & switch experience. First, their email communication was delayed, so it was unclear if I actually had tickets or not, then when we were told to look out for a second confirmation email, one of them didn’t even arrive that confirmed where will call was located in Central Park. Then today, a friend who got there before me, said all Surkus ticket holders were turned away due to a misunderstanding of value capacity. They had provided a phone number to text the day of, but no communication had been disseminated that Surkus ticket holders would be turned away. I only got that confirmation by texting the contact. Don’t download this app!
Not all events are paid! Still a great app btw😯
by bombbae_bay on 2018/12/11 11:59
Went to my first ever Surkus app event yesterday, Monday December 10th, 2018 at the Holiday Commission Party. Basically it was dedicated for small business owners celebrating their achievement, discussing with others small business bout their achievements ect... live music, live dj ect... information about the event was clear with the exception of the time and that it was not paid. I arrived 2 hours beforehand only to find out by the coordinator at the venue that the party did not start until 5:45. Luckily surkus support staff responded immediately (you can also message them on Instagram but they will most likely direct you to contact support staff). ANYWAY I HAD MY CAR TO CHILL IN, SPOKE TO THE SUPPORT STAFF TO INFORM THEM OF THE WRONG INFORMATION ECT🤭🤗🤗. Also I was under the impression that I would get paid. I did not, but however at least when you get paid it will say it on the event!! IF THERE IS THE PAYMENT INCLUDED IN THE DESCRIPTION OF AN EVENT YOU WOULD LIKE TO ATTEND TOO THAT MEANS ITS PAID!! But what I realized that we, Surkus critics are able to attend parties for Free, receive perks, and invite a plus one most of the time. We experience many kinds of events and basically if you think about now I also have experience as a “critic”!!! Thanks Surkus and I look forward to have fun, critique and enjoy all the events you throw at me.
I don't know where to begin.
by jazgarcia on 2018/05/29 21:02
I am a girl who moved to LA in August with a strong faith, an overly positive attitude and 2 friends out here. My friend Alicia recommended this app to me. I thought cool, getting paid to go to exclusive events. My gosh, it's so much more than that. For me at least. I have met incredible people through a chain of events starting with Surkus. People I consider my friends and people who have jump started my career. At an event for Ne-Yo I met a gentleman who became a friend that got me in music videos, invited my boyfriend and I to events and more importantly was selfless, a friend and someone I could count on. I booked a prank tv show through surkus. Through that experience, I met an amazing casting director and production team. Like I said, probably not an every day experience with this app but try it out! Can’t hurt and you might be surprised. Thank you Surkus.
Great way to try new things
by heather.21a on 2019/12/11 18:57
Surkus is a great way to try new things and get refunded for every day purchases. So far, I’ve done about 5 events and they’ve all been very smooth and I’ve been refunded the price immediately. Surkus normally gives you the full rebate of the product and then an extra bonus amount, which is nice because it gives the extra incentive to follow through and thoroughly review the products. The only thing I don’t enjoy is how competitive the products are. I have VIP status and I wasn’t selected for the last 8 events before I finally got to do one. I feel like the VIP status should give you first priority to events. There aren’t many VIP only events so I don’t really get what the point of being a vip member is. Also, there aren’t that many in-person events in the Chicagoland area which I would like to see more of.
Unwilling to accept responsibility for their actions
by Rararaechel on 2018/04/13 02:58
I was invited to Country Costal Jam on April 8th, 2018. The only thing I had to do to get the tickets was post to Instagram a picture of me with the person I wanted to go with and tag Surkus by April 7th. I followed this step and Surkus responded by saying I would have two tickets at will call. At 11pm on April 7th I was marked a no-show and my rating dropped ALOT even though I followed the directions. I went to the event on April 8th and my name was not on the list of Surkus members even though I had posted to social media on time as requested. I also messaged the Ambassador and she never responded. I emailed Surkus several times but they are unwilling to fix my rating or even acknowledge that they made a mistake!! I have no other issues with this app. I enjoyed the other events I went to previously!
Very poor design - great potential but bad execution
by Josh3790 on 2018/01/16 23:17
The fact that they won’t invite both you and your significant other to the same events, ever, and don’t even let you all invite each other to the same events is ridiculously. They need an option to link accounts together. I work in Irvine and my fiancé works in Hollywood, we both live together in LA. Because we are in different cities during the day, we will never get the same event invites and will never be able to invite each other. This app needs a major update to work. Also, we’re obviously not going to ditch each other if only one of us gets cast. They need to be able to link accounts to lower cancellation rates. 2 stars, because the customer support rep was very nice.
Cool App - Lots of Room for Improvement
by Jfearsneal on 2018/03/01 16:37
Cool app and it offers some fun experiences. However, there are a lot of things that could be configured better. For instance, a way to switch off notifications for opportunities while you’re out of town/traveling so your rating doesn’t go down by not responding to opps. Also, I believe another person mentioned this, but a way to link to accounts together. I’m married. If I get cast and my husband doesn’t, there’s no way I’m going. Linking accounts or “families” together would be helpful. We don’t have kids and are free for a majority of these opportunities but when one of us gets cast and the other doesn’t, we cancel because it’s not worth it.
Wack Fyre Fest Style Events
by jaszly on 2019/03/31 01:18
I was selected for a T Mobile Event that boasted open bar, food and celebrity guests LOL. After waiting in line for an hour, they told us no one else was getting in but we could wait and see if some people came out. So once a bunch of people walked out they let us in. There was no one from surkus anywhere in sight to check in with, the bar had NO BAR DRINKS beyond water and diet sprite, there was absolutely NO FOOD and no signs that there was ever food present. and I guess the celebrity guest was a random no name band. Was I paid for the event I was told I be paid for attending? No. Because no one from surkus was anywhere to be found. Considering I lost 2.5 hours of my life I’ll never get back and $30 for an Uber to and fro seems like I came out worse than I started
Disappointed
by Luigi0318 on 2018/06/23 06:23
The few times I used this service it worked great except tonight when I saw that there was a free event to see Young Thug in which I arrived at the scheduled 9:45 show up time and was asked to pay at the door. They decided (since apparently this wasn’t discussed with the club Lure in advanced) that only the first 10 people would gain free entry. Now while I am normally not one to complain; I am now. Not only did I waste my time getting ready for this but, I used my good cologne, put on my good shirt and pregamed for what I thought was free. I’m just saying this was a big inconvenience for myself and if you wanted me to just go to the event to pay entry... just ask don’t lie about it or better yet be organized.

Poor Customer Service
by AKT1ON on 2018/04/02 20:01
I had my app on and checked in with the guy at the event I attended. Later, after I got my coupon I opened the app again to see I was marked "no show." As soon as I got home I sent Surkus a picture on the coupon, and let them know what happened. Instead of letting me know what to do next time, and helping me out. They just told me what I did wrong multiple times from multiple people. They finally said they won't change anything because it "has been more than 2 days after the event." My girlfriend had the same issue, but they helped her right away. Our thought is that they care more about her attending events because she is a girl.
Disappointed is an understatement.
by Bekl89 on 2019/08/30 02:08
So I’ve been with Surkus since February 2016.... this used to be the most amazing app. I was an ambassador for most of the time. I met so many amazing people whom I’m still friends with and I was able to go to all kinds of amazing events and get paid to be there! But in the last year it’s basically been nothing but ads for me to buy stuff and make a post to my social media. And it’s all spammy. It’s literally nothing like it was the first year- two years I was apart of this app. I’m honestly very disappointed. It’s basically a completely different app and has nothing to do with what it was when I first joined. How do I delete my account???
AMAZING!!!! IM OBSESSED
by Moonstar7278876 on 2019/11/07 22:30
I NEVER write reviews for apps but Surkus deserves it! I’ve gotten to try some really cool products for basically FREE and I joined not even 3 weeks ago. You get the cost of products refunded to you at a 100% rate, there is NO catch. I haven’t taken advantage of the events side of the app too much, but they also have really cool invites to fun local events for FREE as well. I’ve never experienced anything like this and I am literally recommending this app to whoever will listen

Agist app
by MD/SD on 2019/11/27 04:03
Recently downloaded this app per friends request. We attended one event & i was going to recommend this app to my friends....however... noticed my friend who is younger was getting offer to the particular event & was telling me to sign up but I told him they were not showing up on my feed. He even sent me the link & I've got a notice that i am not “selected” for the particular event. We figured must be the age bracket ... Will be getting rid off this app & making sure all of the business women who buy their own drinks do not download this app. Thank you.
hit or miss
by Kairshe on 2019/07/09 22:55
sometimes interesting events are posted but lately all it’s been is bark box subscriptions, candy box subscriptions etc. i am not and never will be interested in paying for or getting a little discount for any sort of subscription box. you end up literally spending money. i initially joined for cool events and even when i was a VIP i got a bunch of lame things sent to me that required me spending money. kind of defeats the purpose of the app :/
Customer Service is the worst
by Hannnnnnnnaahahahhhhhhh on 2018/04/17 03:28
After reporting multiple times that I’ve been having points deducted or not added, regardless of the fact that I’ve responded, I have gotten nothing but an awful experience with Surkus’s “Support” team. Please note that you actually don’t receive points for responding, as the app states on the bottom of “Member Rating” - it’s a blatant lie. I was told by Roderick members who respond receive points. What? Lastly, the Support team also accused their app issue on me and my phone service. I was having a problem sending messages, which were sent directly FROM THE APP (Profile -> Support -> Contact us) because they were being cut off and therefore incomplete. When asked why this is an issue, they said it was my email service? How is it my email service if I’m sending the ticket from your app directly.....??? This app is a joke.
Game-changing!
by ajar001 on 2019/08/15 01:28
Been using it nearly every week for 2 years and I’ve seen so many cool events I wouldn’t be able to go to otherwise, and even got to try some new products! Made moving to a new city so much easier, and I’ve had a 100% seamless experience with it on every activity.
Female r free but not Male
by ghostantaniyeh on 2018/05/19 09:51
The aura is very nice and refreshing for a LA club. The club was empty at 11 pm so a good time to beat the crowd. We were just a bit disappointed that it wasn’t communicated ahead of time by Joseph D. (Promoter) that + 1 guest means females are free, but not for the male guests who pay $40 entrance fee. It would have been good knowing that ahead of time, so we would have planned accordingly and had come with girlfriends instead and not make it feel awkward for our male guest.
App is not working
by helenamalia on 2018/05/13 17:11
Somehow I was logged out. I’m guessing the app updated itself. But when I try to log back in and allow Surkus to access my Facebook it says “oops, unauthorized” and my only option is to push okay. It’s been going in a circle this way. There’s no option to log in another way, through entering my Facebook information or phone. I hope you guys can fix this.
What’s the point of being VIP if you aren’t getting selected?
by Bumbstahdani on 2018/09/05 09:44
I used to love this app when i first downloaded it, but now I'm thinking about deleting it. Lately the chances of getting into events like (sports games, concerts, festivals) are slim to none. I’m starting to think that your “rating” doesn’t even matter anymore (i’m at an 893). My hunch is that they are saving these exclusive events for people who have a massive following on IG so they can further promote the app + gain more people to download it. The only invites i’ve been getting lately are clubs where —if you read most of the comments on here, are sex based trying to fill club crowds with females. Tbh, i’ve only went to three cool events since i’ve been on here. Oh well, it was fun while it lasted i guess :/
Surkus is a scam beware!
by Erica nadal on 2020/03/11 21:59
They make you order items with your own money with the promise to refund you when you review. Then the items are flagged and you can’t review them. They will use this excuse to then ban your account and leave you hanging with hundreds of dollars of purchase. When you ask with you have been banned they will make up lies like you have more than one account. This happened to me and to my friend. Stay away from this scam do not buy anything to review.
Don’t download this BS
by YoureABitchSnapchatCreators on 2019/11/21 16:49
This app promises the world and some change and hardly ever delivers. Downloaded because it said we were guaranteed tickets to post Malone concert and turns out it was a hoax. I don’t believe in getting people to join download and give up secure information just to feel a sense of lost hope. Only way to delete is to email support which tells you all that’s needed to know. Won’t be surprised if we hear a class action lawsuit coming to this company soon. Be blessed
Makes long distance relationships easier!

Please Pay Us
by Meep Meepers on 2018/03/14 19:22
Look, I know you guys have to make a profit, but if you're gonna be specifically recruiting attractive people in places like LA, you can't expect model-level members--especially those on the VIP list--to attend or be satisfied with the amount you guys pay, when you actually do. Nearly every one of your events is "get access" but people with full time jobs can't be bothered to just go to these events with no incentive.
Do Fun Things and Get Cool Stuff!
by Renee CM on 2020/02/09 17:28
Surkus always has concerts or events that are fun and I’m always stunned they’re free and also great deals on other cool things especially health and wellness items. It’s great for an inexpensive date night which every struggling artist or budget savvy person can appreciate.
Surkus
by SuperDean86 on 2018/10/26 23:40
If the event requests you to have a friend sign up to Surkus in order to have the chance at going, you will not be selected. Don’t waste your time on these. Your friends won’t appreciate the spam, especially when none of you get chosen.
They won't take care of you
by Ssydela on 2018/04/19 01:29
I used to love this app and enjoyed going to their events, however, recently I went to one where for some reason I was separated from my plus 1 and he was charged. I was told I'd be refunded for the mistake and they came up with a LAME excuse that if I followed instructions it's impossible that this would have happened. But guess what? I did follow instructions and it DID happen and no one wants to do anything about it. I no longer would recommend.
App has a slight glitch
by SoulFl0w3r on 2018/03/05 04:11
Well i had an event i was casted for March 4, 2018 for an acting showcase , and well i was prompt and on time and stayed for the ENTIRE event ! But upon my arrival i was instructed to check-in at a certain time and i made multiple attempts to check - in and the app just would not work for me to that , and i was considered a No show ! So I’d say that was slightly annoying and it affect my status . But all in all i so far enjoy the app .
Too many notifications
by sam.13456 on 2018/04/20 01:55
This app is sending me notifications NON STOP to the same event even though I haven’t replied yet. It’s really annoying to keep hearing that stupid sound several times a day since I can receive up to 10 invites and each one of them sending 3 more reminders. Those extra reminders are definitely not necessary and sometimes make me decline events just to make it stop.
Good night
by ChiefDragonFlyy on 2018/06/23 10:08
; it was a pretty good night , honored to be invited to this event .. it was kind of wack that security kept me and a bunch of people from out of lure at the beginning of the night so i pretty much stayed in the other building ... but its ohkay , me and my friends were TURNT in out section ... we were the party at the ending tbh , we kept the energy alive ;)
Needs your location and background app refresh on
by beefywoman on 2018/02/08 05:14
Surkus knows what city I live in. Why would you need my location services to be on ALL THE TIME and for background app refresh to be on ALL THE TIME. Just send me an email about an event and I can probably make it there on the subway! Giving you my city should be enough to get me cast in events. I’m not gonna drain my battery and give you access to all of my location data even when I’m not using the app.
I love it.
by Blackswan0407 on 2018/06/15 02:31
Personally I love the app. I'm a long time user and now that I've moved it's given me multiple awesome opportunites that lead to meeting some great people. The apps not perfect, but it's never given me any major problems and it a great way to get out there and meet new people.
ACTING CLASS
by TTYLERTRIPP on 2018/05/18 21:18
I had such a good experience at the acting class at two roads theatre through Surkus. If I hadn’t had this opportunity I wouldn’t have realized how enriching this kind of class and community made me feel. Thank you surkus for helping me discover more social creativity in LA!!
Fun, Easy, Fast
by AceAvalon on 2018/08/09 06:13
I was referred to this by a friend and was immediately intrigued. Great events big and small! I’ve already made reservations at multiple sites and am going out on a regular basis. Awesome experience! Highly recommend! This is a life changing app!
Amazing app
by Lili5046 on 2018/04/19 16:32
A good friend of mine recommended that I download the app. And I have had a lot of fun since then I have been lucky enough to participate in several of the events and you get paid which is always a plus
Horrible Experience
by Aloealoegirl on 2017/11/23 04:26
I’ve had horrible experience with this App and the people who are running the verification processes. First of all they haven’t paid for two campaigns that I was cast for and completed in time. Secondly the team who run the verifications is completely out of loop on the requirements for the campaign and the receipts they need to verify a completion. On top of it all, the customer service reps are very rude. SO not worth the measly $5-10 they offer you. Deleting this App now !
Getting access to events and products?
by Simplyswtt on 2019/12/01 22:20
Love the ease of using this app. It’s great to be able to get exclusive access to events that are sold out and to be able to try products in exchange for a review.
New update with 18 hours time limit is terrible
by Mufflejuju on 2020/02/17 20:39
It doesn’t allow us enough time. I know it’s really easy and quick to purchase items but sometimes you have work all day and go straight to sleep and doesn’t allow you to do it the next day. It’s really dumb. It’s not always easy to see your notifications for the app as well. I missed many offers by accident! At least allow 48 hours.
Faboulous way to get out of your comfort zone
by ValerieVictoria on 2018/07/14 21:44
I've been a member since 2015. I've met so many people and have grown my network using this app. There are variety of events to attend. The best is you get paid to show up!
Certain event selections
by Bean town sober on 2018/09/24 22:11
I have just joined and have done so about 2 weeks ago.. its a great app.. but i see that I'm interested in a-lot of events that i show interest for that I'm not selected.. what increases the odds? As not much shows up in my area of boston.. or when it does its immediately filled and i check daily almost hourly
Love the free events
by Zsahoney on 2018/10/30 06:31
I have only been a member for two months and i have been to some amazing events. And they all free access. I love to use it when traveling to various cities and looking for something free to do
Unique fun app!
by citygirl90028 on 2018/02/07 22:18
If you’ve forgotten about this app or are skeptical, give it a try! They have tons of events ranging from concerts, acting classes, background extras for tv shows, sample sales and more! It’s exclusive access like no other app!
Free stuff and free events
by TFweezy on 2020/02/10 02:22
Why not get products for free and free admission to events? Definitely a worthwhile app. Haven’t noticed any glitches or suspected any spyware. Runs smoothly. I check and use it regularly for the hookup. Check it out
No privacy!!!
by Layy!!! on 2020/01/03 03:12
I just uploaded the app by an add on Instagram. I read the reviews thought it would be a fun app, buttttt the only thing that app should fix is the ‘guest list’, it should be optional if you want to see whose on the guest vs. if I want to be seen on the guest list. No privacy!!! If you don’t care, then this shouldn’t be an issue for you.
Surkus is the best interactive social all time!
by dcapa24 on 2017/12/09 07:22
This app is the future of nightlife and everything social. Management is A1 and is on top of everything. The app is constantly improving. This is a great company that knows how to make great experiences for their users.
Incredible events and experiences!
by beach party bump on 2018/11/15 23:55
I love using this app to discover events and activations nearby. They always have these awesome events and parks that i can’t seem to find anywhere else. Highly recommended!!
Perfect for outgoing people!

Surkus always gives the funnest events. If you feel like you want to go out more, Surkus gives you lots of offers and some of it even get you paid.
Fun events and cool products to test!
by ingaidol on 2019/11/02 00:30
This app is so fun for me. It gives me ideas for things to do. What I like most is the product testing. I check the app daily for new events and cool products to try.

First time writing a review. Watch for the “rebates”
by Gayloardd1958 on 2020/03/20 18:05
Things were going well for awhile and I would use the surkus app to go to free events. I don’t go out as much anymore and noticed the “offers” section so I started doing that. Things were great for awhile and I was recommending it to friends letting them know it was “legit”. It turns out amazon is on to them and will delete the reviews or not let people post them anymore. When I went back to show surkus, they didn’t care much. Now I’m out over $100. Even though a lot of the products were good, I still didn’t get my money back & I wrote the reviews.
No paid events anymore
by dancebodybabe724 on 2020/03/19 00:50
Most of the events I get invited to are super wack. They just want you to buy the product off amazon and write a review about it.
Don’t get scammed!
by :(dontlike on 2020/03/15 18:07
Incentivized reviews are illegal on Amazon even if they are honest. Amazon will flag your account, delete your reviews, and you will not get reimbursed for product. The app mostly advertises that you can attend events for free, but there are never any events.
Identify theft beware
by Arya Stark101 on 2020/03/11 23:22
Surkus representatives will ask to send a copy of your ID by email DO NOT DO IT! This is totally illegal and they will presure you on doing so or they wont pay you after you spend your money to buy items to review and get refund. Surkus is a total scam beware!
Surkus is a scam beware!
by Erica nadal on 2020/03/11 21:59
They make you order items with your own money with the promise to refund you when you review. Then the items are flagged and you can’t review them. They will use this excuse to then ban your account and leave you hanging with hundreds of dollars of purchase. When you ask with you have been banned they will make up lies like you have more than one account. This happened to me and to my friend. Stay away from this scam do not buy anything to review.
Not enough events in Miami!

Best App for Events and Offers
by SCG iTunes on 2020/03/06 22:29
I love the events I get attend for free. And the rewards I get back for different offers for me.
New update with 18 hours time limit is terrible
by Mufflejuju on 2020/02/17 20:39
It doesn’t allow us enough time. I know it’s really easy and quick to purchase items but sometimes you have work all day and go straight to sleep and doesn’t allow you to do it the next day. It’s really dumb. It’s not always easy to see your notifications for the app as well. I missed many offers by accident! At least allow 48 hours.
Best event app
by InstaE on 2020/02/13 16:35
This is one of the best event apps ever. You are able to get into movie screening or events that are fun and exciting.
Free stuff and free events
by TFweezy on 2020/02/10 02:22
Why not get products for free and free admission to events? Definitely a worthwhile app. Haven’t noticed any glitches or suspected any spyware. Runs smoothly. I check and use it regularly for the hookup. Check it out
Best App Ever!!!
by AHUH12 on 2020/02/09 20:47
I LOVE the Surkus app and enjoy all of the events and offers! The app is easy to navigate and the content is perfectly curated just for me. I get to experience so many cool products and events. It’s absolutely AWESOME!!! LOVE IT!!!
Do Fun Things and Get Cool Stuff!
by Renee CM on 2020/02/09 17:28
Surkus always has concerts or events that are fun and I’m always stunned they’re free and also great deals on other cool things especially health and wellness items. It’s great for an inexpensive date night which every struggling artist or budget savvy person can appreciate.
Scam garbage
by surkus not good on 2020/01/25 23:45
Super annoying app. Supposed to have a pdf ticket sent to my email, but after check in you need to wait for someone from Surkus to manually review it in order to get a ticket. The review takes more than an hour, you have to wait before you can get in. Wasted so so so much time, not worth it.
No privacy!!!
by Layy!!! on 2020/01/03 03:12
I just uploaded the app by an add on Instagram. I read the reviews thought it would be a fun app, buttttt the only thing that app should fix is the ‘guest list’, it should be optional if you want to see whose on the guest vs. if I want to be seen on the guest list. No privacy!!! If you don’t care, then this shouldn’t be an issue for you.
Credits Take Too Long
by Misterprefect14 on 2019/12/14 22:36
It takes days longer than the 48 hour promise period to be reimbursed for the credits apart of the offers.
Great way to try new things
by heather.21a on 2019/12/11 18:57
Surkus is a great way to try new things and get refunded for every day purchases. So far, I’ve done about 5 events and they’ve all been very smooth and I’ve been refunded the price immediately. Surkus normally gives you the full rebate of the product and then an extra bonus amount, which is nice because it gives the extra incentive to follow through and thoroughly review the products. The only thing I don’t enjoy is how competitive the products are. I have VIP status and I wasn’t selected for the last 8 events before I finally got to do one. I feel like the VIP status should give you first priority to events. There aren’t many VIP only events so I don’t really get what the point of being a vip member is. Also, there aren’t that many in-person events in the Chicagoland area which I would like to see more of.

It was so much fun! Sirkus definitely hooked it up today!!!! For all my 80s lovers you guys should come on a Thursday it’s the best!!!
Garbage app
by Sabbriinnaaa on 2019/12/03 14:46
Won’t stop emailing me. Can’t unsubscribe just has a link to download the app again where the unsubscribe option is!
Getting access to events and products?
by Simplyswtt on 2019/12/01 22:20
Love the ease of using this app. It’s great to be able to get exclusive access to events that are sold out and to be able to try products in exchange for a review.
No Las Vegas events?
by HappyLandlord on 2019/12/01 16:15
“No events near you” in Las Vegas. If the app doesn’t find vegas events then it clearly has a ways to go before it’s useful. Update: Received emails daily, and when I tried to unsubscribe I was required to download the app again! Not only do the app not meet expectations, but it’s user experience is poorly developed too.
Agist app
by MD/SD on 2019/11/27 04:03
Recently downloaded this app per friends request. We attended one event & i was going to recommend this app to my friends....however... noticed my friend who is younger was getting offer to the particular event & was telling me to sign up but I told him they were not showing up on my feed. He even sent me the link & I've got a notice that i am not “selected” for the particular event. We figured must be the age bracket ... Will be getting rid off this app & making sure all of the business women who buy their own drinks do not download this app. Thank you.
Don’t download this BS
by YoureABitchSnapchatCreators on 2019/11/21 16:49
This app promises the world and some change and hardly ever delivers. Downloaded because it said we were guaranteed tickets to post Malone concert and turns out it was a hoax. I don’t believe in getting people to join download and give up secure information just to feel a sense of lost hope. Only way to delete is to email support which tells you all that’s needed to know. Won’t be surprised if we hear a class action lawsuit coming to this company soon. Be blessed
Don’t bother
by Biampas on 2019/11/19 20:14
Waste of app! false advertising..... throughout a week app was advertised on Instagram and Facebook for is post Malone tickets .... a day before u get a notification u didn’t get chosen 🥴 Waste of app just wants you to download for other events not worth the excitement
Not functioning
by Adriee97 on 2019/11/19 19:50
Cool app but I sent an invite to my boyfriend and he accepted and downloaded the app and nothing is showing up on his invite list nor is it adjusting me that he accepted on my app either like it's supposed to according to the FAQs. Please help!!

by LusciousLuscia on 2019/11/13 22:09
Downloaded app. Tried to sign up (not login). Keep getting error message that my email or password is incorrect. How can that be if I’m trying to sign up and have never downloaded this app before? I shudder to think just how deplorable the experiences will be if my first 10 seconds are this craptastic.
Misleading and Scammy

Don’t waste your time.
AMAZING!!!! IM OBSESSED
by Moonstar7278876 on 2019/11/07 22:30
I NEVER write reviews for apps but Surkus deserves it! I’ve gotten to try some really cool products for basically FREE and I joined not even 3 weeks ago. You get the cost of products refunded to you at a 100% rate, there is NO catch. I haven’t taken advantage of the events side of the app too much, but they also have really cool invites to fun local events for FREE as well. I’ve never experienced anything like this and I am literally recommending this app to whoever will listen
Good app
by Arch13674377899 on 2019/11/02 15:56
They used to have more events. Now it’s mainly just product offers which is still nice but I do miss the events.

by PhoenixRising8 on 2019/10/29 02:57
I love Surkus! I’ve gone to so many amazing events that typically cost between $20-$200 -For Free! I’ve also gotten so many amazing things from Amazon that I love from Amazon, Eaze- I love this App. Easy to use- I refer as many people as I could.
Can't even set it up

Disappointed is an understatement.
by Bekl89 on 2019/08/30 02:08
So I’ve been with Surkus since February 2016.... this used to be the most amazing app. I was an ambassador for most of the time. I met so many amazing people whom I’m still friends with and I was able to go to all kinds of amazing events and get paid to be there! But in the last year it’s basically been nothing but ads for me to buy stuff and make a post to my social media. And it’s all spammy. It’s literally nothing like it was the first year- two years I was apart of this app. I’m honestly very disappointed. It’s basically a completely different app and has nothing to do with what it was when I first joined. How do I delete my account???
Troubleshooting error
by allniknameztak3n on 2019/08/18 21:57
This app pays for you to attend some events but later when you try to withdraw the money a troubleshooting error message will appear stating there was an issue with the transfer and to contact paypal. I’ve received payments else were from paypal and have had no issue. Surkus should really check their pay out forms.
This app is really cool!
by Haithammou94 on 2019/08/15 04:10
I had the chance to attend 1975 concert for free through, such an amazing experience!
Game-changing!
by ajar001 on 2019/08/15 01:28
Been using it nearly every week for 2 years and I’ve seen so many cool events I wouldn’t be able to go to otherwise, and even got to try some new products! Made moving to a new city so much easier, and I’ve had a 100% seamless experience with it on every activity.
Not worth it anymore..
by mchellesopinion on 2019/07/30 23:05
This has became a invite to events/clubs that would already be free. And discounts that are not worth it. This app used to be good, there was paid promotional model, castings, crowd and products that again ALL paid. Now it’s not worth it just basically “Get Access”. Sad that isn’t a good way to get work anymore. Nice idea but didn’t work I guess
hit or miss
by Kairshe on 2019/07/09 22:55
sometimes interesting events are posted but lately all it’s been is bark box subscriptions, candy box subscriptions etc. i am not and never will be interested in paying for or getting a little discount for any sort of subscription box. you end up literally spending money. i initially joined for cool events and even when i was a VIP i got a bunch of lame things sent to me that required me spending money. kind of defeats the purpose of the app :/
scam
by scorpiobby on 2019/06/28 05:41
after i made my account i started getting random emails & phone calls. Within 5 minutes of linking my instagram account with the app my account got hacked and my password was changed. DO NOT give them personal information
Not what it used to be
by KellySh on 2019/06/20 23:18
This app used to be really cool for local events. I’ve had a blast at some events I’ve attended but since the last month or so it seems like the event invites have stopped and it’s a bunch of online services (like barkbox, wine club, gainful) that reward you $5 for signing up for a membership that will cost you $40. It used to be worth it and now it’s just advertising.
Discrimination central
by JacksFlowers on 2019/06/15 01:54
Surkus is a scam app that disguises itself well by allowing a few people actually get to do what it markets itself as. It is a data mine that is selling your information and making money off of falsely promoting things on amazon. It also will offer you discounts on tickets to things you didn’t get selected to go to for free. They obviously discriminate against race and gender. Ambassadors rate you after you do go to events. Being VIP means nothing. If you want events, just go on eventbrite and search your city for free things :)
Spam
by Sarah Sixpack on 2019/05/25 11:05
It used to be a great way to find something to do. Now, it's just spammy garbage used to advertise new-to-market goods and services.
Not getting my money :/
by RaiiEzzy on 2019/05/09 06:14
I got paid for 2 events and when I tried to cash out I keep getting an error. I tried cashing out with two different PayPal accounts and it still won’t let me. The events are nice actually. I enjoy using the app. I just wish I could get paid for the products I bought and reviewed.
Wack Fyre Fest Style Events
by jaszly on 2019/03/31 01:18
I was selected for a T Mobile Event that boasted open bar, food and celebrity guests LOL. After waiting in line for an hour, they told us no one else was getting in but we could wait and see if some people came out. So once a bunch of people walked out they let us in. There was no one from surkus anywhere in sight to check in with, the bar had NO BAR DRINKS beyond water and diet sprite, there was absolutely NO FOOD and no signs that there was ever food present. and I guess the celebrity guest was a random no name band. Was I paid for the event I was told I be paid for attending? No. Because no one from surkus was anywhere to be found. Considering I lost 2.5 hours of my life I’ll never get back and $30 for an Uber to and fro seems like I came out worse than I started
Use to be good
by JdSquared-1 on 2019/02/15 06:22
Events now are all junk. Mostly public events they get paid for you to show up to and you get nothing. VIP is a joke also, hope it improves back to what it use to be.
Great app but...
by MusicScoot on 2019/02/12 21:55
I think that this is a great app, but some events I get info for are too far for me to travel to and I'd really like to be able to search specific cities for events.
Wah Wah
by MarcelAKAMouse on 2019/01/30 05:37
Not a single event in all of Reno and the surrounding area? Wah Wah! 😢 That’s strange since we normally have tons of events going on all the time in Reno, Carson, Virginia City, and Tahoe!
Pink event
by Fire Dimand on 2019/01/27 07:08
I really love the pink event, the food, and entertainment was great.
Can’t get pass a point
by annorying on 2019/01/20 16:12
Can’t get pass a point to get into the app I thinking it referral code should’ve been sent to email so I can get pass this point I can’t I haven’t gotten a email for that
I’d like to see all events around
by Bad luck drunk on 2019/01/16 00:45
This app says events picked for you! I can’t even see what are other events around. No major listings too. Needs a lot of work.

The only events I get are 2.5 hours away in NYC.
It won’t let me sign up
by vonnie6492 on 2019/01/10 14:37
Every time I try to start an account it tells me error but doesn’t say what the error is.
Vip doesnt get you anything
by Bdcbklobgs on 2019/01/08 01:11
One thing I do not understand about VIP is that it doesnt give me any of the cool event offers I did when I first started. I used to get free entry of a club w/ bottle service and now I don’t get that at all. I’m not understanding the point of VIP if there’s nothing to offer....?
Transportation
by ElyssaRH on 2019/01/05 06:33
Needs to include some parking deals or discounts to make transportation easier for participants
First time

Easy as123! No lines No waiting Excellent show Highly recommended!
Used to be good , now garbage
by 2good2bxxxxxx on 2018/12/17 11:54
This app used to be great, now they don’t pay you for anything, despite the fact they get paid for your presence. They fill the app with Public events you can just google And no more online stuff In short - save the space for another selfie and don’t bother
Not all events are paid! Still a great app btw😯
by bombbae_bay on 2018/12/11 11:59
Went to my first ever Surkus app event yesterday, Monday December 10th, 2018 at the Holiday Commission Party. Basically it was dedicated for small business owners celebrating their achievement, discussing with others small business bout their achievements ect... live music, live dj ect... information about the event was clear with the exception of the time and that it was not paid. I arrived 2 hours beforehand only to find out by the coordinator at the venue that the party did not start until 5:45. Luckily surkus support staff responded immediately (you can also message them on Instagram but they will most likely direct you to contact support staff). ANYWAY I HAD MY CAR TO CHILL IN, SPOKE TO THE SUPPORT STAFF TO INFORM THEM OF THE WRONG INFORMATION ECT🤭🤗🤗. Also I was under the impression that I would get paid. I did not, but however at least when you get paid it will say it on the event!! IF THERE IS THE PAYMENT INCLUDED IN THE DESCRIPTION OF AN EVENT YOU WOULD LIKE TO ATTEND TOO THAT MEANS ITS PAID!! But what I realized that we, Surkus critics are able to attend parties for Free, receive perks, and invite a plus one most of the time. We experience many kinds of events and basically if you think about now I also have experience as a “critic”!!! Thanks Surkus and I look forward to have fun, critique and enjoy all the events you throw at me.
I love SURKUS
by bobbiemlong on 2018/12/04 23:50
Best app ever! Seriously, I have had the best experiences. 10/10 would recommend.
Incredible events and experiences!
by beach party bump on 2018/11/15 23:55
I love using this app to discover events and activations nearby. They always have these awesome events and parks that i can’t seem to find anywhere else. Highly recommended!!
Eh
by That nickname is chosen 2 on 2018/11/04 04:55
Schedules change. We should be able to list our weekday preferences. More options would be nice too. Where are all the comedy shows? Besides an occasional concert the offerings aren’t that interesting.
This is the most fun I ever had with an app
by i look good in pink on 2018/11/01 22:10
I will admit I was skeptical about this app at first but now this is one of my top favorite apps I have on my phone. I met a lot of cool people and attended cool events I wish could give this app a million stars ⭐️ Had to drop this to 3 stars
Just Downloaded App & Attended my 1st CONCERT , same Day
by High_Price on 2018/10/31 03:15
This app is the BOMB but don't just believe me come see for yourself !
Love the free events
by Zsahoney on 2018/10/30 06:31
I have only been a member for two months and i have been to some amazing events. And they all free access. I love to use it when traveling to various cities and looking for something free to do
Surkus
by SuperDean86 on 2018/10/26 23:40
If the event requests you to have a friend sign up to Surkus in order to have the chance at going, you will not be selected. Don’t waste your time on these. Your friends won’t appreciate the spam, especially when none of you get chosen.
WHAT A FUN TIME
by Captain Conscious on 2018/10/15 13:59
I truly enjoyed my experience at AFV. A tip to all if you go dressed up they have a contest where they give two winners a $100 so if you go really dress up like it’s New Year’s Eve and you just may win. 😊
Love this app
by Summer Hathaway on 2018/10/10 22:35
Got free tickets to a festival which was awesome!

Certain event selections
by Bean town sober on 2018/09/24 22:11
I have just joined and have done so about 2 weeks ago.. its a great app.. but i see that I'm interested in a-lot of events that i show interest for that I'm not selected.. what increases the odds? As not much shows up in my area of boston.. or when it does its immediately filled and i check daily almost hourly
Do you even get selected?
by Whitneya96 on 2018/09/23 17:20
I’ve had this app for 3 months, hit the “I’d like to go” button, and have not been selected to go to ANYTHING!!! Idk if anyone ever gets selected to do anything 🤷🏼‍♀️
Best life festival

More tickets for giveaways
by Kingmarty50 on 2018/09/09 02:02
Also If we don’t go I feel like it shouldn’t penalize us
Remove me from the email list.
by aw2638491 on 2018/09/08 20:30
I downloaded this app for my trip to LA, then deleted it when I went home. But the company is still sending me emails for events. And I can’t change my email preferences without downloading the app again…
What’s the point of being VIP if you aren’t getting selected?
by Bumbstahdani on 2018/09/05 09:44
I used to love this app when i first downloaded it, but now I'm thinking about deleting it. Lately the chances of getting into events like (sports games, concerts, festivals) are slim to none. I’m starting to think that your “rating” doesn’t even matter anymore (i’m at an 893). My hunch is that they are saving these exclusive events for people who have a massive following on IG so they can further promote the app + gain more people to download it. The only invites i’ve been getting lately are clubs where —if you read most of the comments on here, are sex based trying to fill club crowds with females. Tbh, i’ve only went to three cool events since i’ve been on here. Oh well, it was fun while it lasted i guess :/
A really great App!!
by marinelife59 on 2018/08/29 23:00
This App is really awesome! There are opportunities for many different kinds of events. Museums, Concerts, Fitness, Food Festivals, Comedy Shows, Movies, Studio Events, Pre-screening new Movies, etc... some compensate for attendance. The only reason I gave it a 4 star versus a 5 star is because most events are in LA County. It would be awesome if more events would be available in Orange County.
No complaints
by sskelsey on 2018/08/25 02:04
The app does exactly what it says. If I ever have any issues or problems I email them and they fix the issue. I love the app and sometimes the events are pretty cool. Sometimes I wish they would give you more time to respond for events being that people have busy lives and aren’t always looking at their phones. But all in all, I do like the app and it has a lot a great potential.
Dope opportunities
by Tresrare_nico on 2018/08/21 05:45
Surkus is dope man. You get into places for cheaper or free & have a great time. Dope app
More selections
by Gangsta Goddess on 2018/08/17 15:01
This app is pretty cool I just wish they would give more of a variety of selection. The preference section is not usable so in turn the app is recommended a lot of the same events.
Surkus

Awesome !
Rating stays the same even after responding
by estefaniiie on 2018/08/16 02:21
I respond to invites and my rating has stayed the same. This is causing me not to get selected for events. Please fix ASAP!!!
Scammers that won’t let you delete a profile
by Nick from Pasadena on 2018/08/15 18:56
The events are awful. The rewards are awful. They won’t let you delete a profile in the app and their email system doesn’t work. And the app “conveniently” stopped showing me notifications when I was getting close to VIP. So 8 months of using it and now my score is terrible after a weekend of no messages when they spammed me with 40 events I never was notified of on my phone. Also pretty sure they sell phone numbers to telemarketers when they collect your data. My whole office started using Surkus right before we all started to be bombarded with phone scammers.
This app has gone downhill
by Hanna312111 on 2018/08/13 20:47
I used to use this app all the time but the company has changed quickly and not for the better. You cant even reach customer service anymore except for specific hours and days and when you do they arent polite and helpful. They don't care about their users anymore. At all
Exciting App
by Jesus1969! on 2018/08/13 17:51
I’m enjoying get out & about in the City 🌃! Although. If I want to cancel my Event: I can’t seem to find the Cancel feature on the app. Thanks for all the fun!
Cuco
by Vnsamrqz on 2018/08/11 06:53
Cuco was tight but wish we could have been closer but then again it was free so thanks surkus you a true a fam
Went to a film, got sent away
by Ilikemoney87 on 2018/08/09 17:19
Person in charge said they had enough people after I drove all the way there then told I wouldn’t get an pay & I arrived before the time on the app. I as well as several others got turned away which was very upsetting & inconsiderate.
Fun, Easy, Fast
by AceAvalon on 2018/08/09 06:13
I was referred to this by a friend and was immediately intrigued. Great events big and small! I’ve already made reservations at multiple sites and am going out on a regular basis. Awesome experience! Highly recommend! This is a life changing app!
Fun things to do!
by excellent auto movies on 2018/08/05 21:31
Family fun things to do around Los Angeles that are different than your normal day-to-day activities, but you also get a little pocket money

Best platform ever
by madisonfiore on 2018/08/03 15:58
This is a game changer! I love using this app. Easy, fun, and FREE!
This app is next level!
by nick litty on 2018/07/28 04:34
Just what my girl and i needed! Vip invites, free access, art, music , food! Best app yet
I like this app
by Wildsamfierce on 2018/07/27 00:42
It’s a great app to find out about events and also make some extra cash.
Lowering rating
by dianadancelife on 2018/07/24 18:15
I like to use this app sometimes even though they are usually paying 5-7 times less for parties than promoters. But the bad thing is you can build your member rating for a long time and get that VIP status but if you won’t respond for 2 invitations it will drop so significantly that you will need to build it for a long time again. I understand drop when you “nonshow” but for not responding it doesn’t feel right. Sometimes I don’t use the app for a month or more and after that I’m usually with so low rating that I cannot get any good invitations. If they won’t drop rating for “not responding “ I’ll give them 4 stars.
Crazy Fun!!
by Carmelbombshell on 2018/07/24 02:04
Love going to events via Surkus app it’s so much fun. Don’t miss out on the best fun of your life!!!
Rethink rating method.
by S.Keri-Ann on 2018/07/23 01:06
Say you have another job and you’re unable to respond to EVERY single invite in time, I don’t think it’s fair to lower your member rating.
App not working
by GraceU on 2018/07/21 22:33
I can’t see my booker events anymore nor am I able to decline an event. The app used to work just fine but not anymore.
Scammy app
by RandumbSoCoYCgaL on 2018/07/21 19:04
I used this app to get tickets to Ozy Fest in NYC and it was an awful bait & switch experience. First, their email communication was delayed, so it was unclear if I actually had tickets or not, then when we were told to look out for a second confirmation email, one of them didn’t even arrive that confirmed where will call was located in Central Park. Then today, a friend who got there before me, said all Surkus ticket holders were turned away due to a misunderstanding of value capacity. They had provided a phone number to text the day of, but no communication had been disseminated that Surkus ticket holders would be turned away. I only got that confirmation by texting the contact. Don’t download this app!
Not all events are paid! Still a great app btw😯
by bombbae_bay on 2018/12/11 11:59
Went to my first ever Surkus app event yesterday, Monday December 10th, 2018 at the Holiday Commission Party. Basically it was dedicated for small business owners celebrating their achievement, discussing with others small business bout their achievements ect... live music, live dj ect... information about the event was clear with the exception of the time and that it was not paid. I arrived 2 hours beforehand only to find out by the coordinator at the venue that the party did not start until 5:45. Luckily surkus support staff responded immediately (you can also message them on Instagram but they will most likely direct you to contact support staff). ANYWAY I HAD MY CAR TO CHILL IN, SPOKE TO THE SUPPORT STAFF TO INFORM THEM OF THE WRONG INFORMATION ECT🤭🤗🤗. Also I was under the impression that I would get paid. I did not, but however at least when you get paid it will say it on the event!! IF THERE IS THE PAYMENT INCLUDED IN THE DESCRIPTION OF AN EVENT YOU WOULD LIKE TO ATTEND TOO THAT MEANS ITS PAID!! But what I realized that we, Surkus critics are able to attend parties for Free, receive perks, and invite a plus one most of the time. We experience many kinds of events and basically if you think about now I also have experience as a “critic”!!! Thanks Surkus and I look forward to have fun, critique and enjoy all the events you throw at me.
I don't know where to begin.
by jazgarcia on 2018/05/29 21:02
I am a girl who moved to LA in August with a strong faith, an overly positive attitude and 2 friends out here. My friend Alicia recommended this app to me. I thought cool, getting paid to go to exclusive events. My gosh, it's so much more than that. For me at least. I have met incredible people through a chain of events starting with Surkus. People I consider my friends and people who have jump started my career. At an event for Ne-Yo I met a gentleman who became a friend that got me in music videos, invited my boyfriend and I to events and more importantly was selfless, a friend and someone I could count on. I booked a prank tv show through surkus. Through that experience, I met an amazing casting director and production team. Like I said, probably not an every day experience with this app but try it out! Can’t hurt and you might be surprised. Thank you Surkus.
Great way to try new things
by heather.21a on 2019/12/11 18:57
Surkus is a great way to try new things and get refunded for every day purchases. So far, I’ve done about 5 events and they’ve all been very smooth and I’ve been refunded the price immediately. Surkus normally gives you the full rebate of the product and then an extra bonus amount, which is nice because it gives the extra incentive to follow through and thoroughly review the products. The only thing I don’t enjoy is how competitive the products are. I have VIP status and I wasn’t selected for the last 8 events before I finally got to do one. I feel like the VIP status should give you first priority to events. There aren’t many VIP only events so I don’t really get what the point of being a vip member is. Also, there aren’t that many in-person events in the Chicagoland area which I would like to see more of.
Unwilling to accept responsibility for their actions
by Rararaechel on 2018/04/13 02:58
I was invited to Country Costal Jam on April 8th, 2018. The only thing I had to do to get the tickets was post to Instagram a picture of me with the person I wanted to go with and tag Surkus by April 7th. I followed this step and Surkus responded by saying I would have two tickets at will call. At 11pm on April 7th I was marked a no-show and my rating dropped ALOT even though I followed the directions. I went to the event on April 8th and my name was not on the list of Surkus members even though I had posted to social media on time as requested. I also messaged the Ambassador and she never responded. I emailed Surkus several times but they are unwilling to fix my rating or even acknowledge that they made a mistake!! I have no other issues with this app. I enjoyed the other events I went to previously!
Very poor design - great potential but bad execution
by Josh3790 on 2018/01/16 23:17
The fact that they won’t invite both you and your significant other to the same events, ever, and don’t even let you all invite each other to the same events is ridiculously. They need an option to link accounts together. I work in Irvine and my fiancé works in Hollywood, we both live together in LA. Because we are in different cities during the day, we will never get the same event invites and will never be able to invite each other. This app needs a major update to work. Also, we’re obviously not going to ditch each other if only one of us gets cast. They need to be able to link accounts to lower cancellation rates. 2 stars, because the customer support rep was very nice.
Cool App - Lots of Room for Improvement
by Jfearsneal on 2018/03/01 16:37
Cool app and it offers some fun experiences. However, there are a lot of things that could be configured better. For instance, a way to switch off notifications for opportunities while you’re out of town/traveling so your rating doesn’t go down by not responding to opps. Also, I believe another person mentioned this, but a way to link to accounts together. I’m married. If I get cast and my husband doesn’t, there’s no way I’m going. Linking accounts or “families” together would be helpful. We don’t have kids and are free for a majority of these opportunities but when one of us gets cast and the other doesn’t, we cancel because it’s not worth it.
Wack Fyre Fest Style Events
by jaszly on 2019/03/31 01:18
I was selected for a T Mobile Event that boasted open bar, food and celebrity guests LOL. After waiting in line for an hour, they told us no one else was getting in but we could wait and see if some people came out. So once a bunch of people walked out they let us in. There was no one from surkus anywhere in sight to check in with, the bar had NO BAR DRINKS beyond water and diet sprite, there was absolutely NO FOOD and no signs that there was ever food present. and I guess the celebrity guest was a random no name band. Was I paid for the event I was told I be paid for attending? No. Because no one from surkus was anywhere to be found. Considering I lost 2.5 hours of my life I’ll never get back and $30 for an Uber to and fro seems like I came out worse than I started
Disappointed
by Luigi0318 on 2018/06/23 06:23
The few times I used this service it worked great except tonight when I saw that there was a free event to see Young Thug in which I arrived at the scheduled 9:45 show up time and was asked to pay at the door. They decided (since apparently this wasn’t discussed with the club Lure in advanced) that only the first 10 people would gain free entry. Now while I am normally not one to complain; I am now. Not only did I waste my time getting ready for this but, I used my good cologne, put on my good shirt and pregamed for what I thought was free. I’m just saying this was a big inconvenience for myself and if you wanted me to just go to the event to pay entry... just ask don’t lie about it or better yet be organized.

Poor Customer Service
by AKT1ON on 2018/04/02 20:01
I had my app on and checked in with the guy at the event I attended. Later, after I got my coupon I opened the app again to see I was marked "no show." As soon as I got home I sent Surkus a picture on the coupon, and let them know what happened. Instead of letting me know what to do next time, and helping me out. They just told me what I did wrong multiple times from multiple people. They finally said they won't change anything because it "has been more than 2 days after the event." My girlfriend had the same issue, but they helped her right away. Our thought is that they care more about her attending events because she is a girl.
Disappointed is an understatement.
by Bekl89 on 2019/08/30 02:08
So I’ve been with Surkus since February 2016.... this used to be the most amazing app. I was an ambassador for most of the time. I met so many amazing people whom I’m still friends with and I was able to go to all kinds of amazing events and get paid to be there! But in the last year it’s basically been nothing but ads for me to buy stuff and make a post to my social media. And it’s all spammy. It’s literally nothing like it was the first year- two years I was apart of this app. I’m honestly very disappointed. It’s basically a completely different app and has nothing to do with what it was when I first joined. How do I delete my account???
AMAZING!!!! IM OBSESSED
by Moonstar7278876 on 2019/11/07 22:30
I NEVER write reviews for apps but Surkus deserves it! I’ve gotten to try some really cool products for basically FREE and I joined not even 3 weeks ago. You get the cost of products refunded to you at a 100% rate, there is NO catch. I haven’t taken advantage of the events side of the app too much, but they also have really cool invites to fun local events for FREE as well. I’ve never experienced anything like this and I am literally recommending this app to whoever will listen

Agist app
by MD/SD on 2019/11/27 04:03
Recently downloaded this app per friends request. We attended one event & i was going to recommend this app to my friends....however... noticed my friend who is younger was getting offer to the particular event & was telling me to sign up but I told him they were not showing up on my feed. He even sent me the link & I've got a notice that i am not “selected” for the particular event. We figured must be the age bracket ... Will be getting rid off this app & making sure all of the business women who buy their own drinks do not download this app. Thank you.
hit or miss
by Kairshe on 2019/07/09 22:55
sometimes interesting events are posted but lately all it’s been is bark box subscriptions, candy box subscriptions etc. i am not and never will be interested in paying for or getting a little discount for any sort of subscription box. you end up literally spending money. i initially joined for cool events and even when i was a VIP i got a bunch of lame things sent to me that required me spending money. kind of defeats the purpose of the app :/
Customer Service is the worst
by Hannnnnnnnaahahahhhhhhh on 2018/04/17 03:28
After reporting multiple times that I’ve been having points deducted or not added, regardless of the fact that I’ve responded, I have gotten nothing but an awful experience with Surkus’s “Support” team. Please note that you actually don’t receive points for responding, as the app states on the bottom of “Member Rating” - it’s a blatant lie. I was told by Roderick members who respond receive points. What? Lastly, the Support team also accused their app issue on me and my phone service. I was having a problem sending messages, which were sent directly FROM THE APP (Profile -> Support -> Contact us) because they were being cut off and therefore incomplete. When asked why this is an issue, they said it was my email service? How is it my email service if I’m sending the ticket from your app directly.....??? This app is a joke.
Game-changing!
by ajar001 on 2019/08/15 01:28
Been using it nearly every week for 2 years and I’ve seen so many cool events I wouldn’t be able to go to otherwise, and even got to try some new products! Made moving to a new city so much easier, and I’ve had a 100% seamless experience with it on every activity.
Female r free but not Male
by ghostantaniyeh on 2018/05/19 09:51
The aura is very nice and refreshing for a LA club. The club was empty at 11 pm so a good time to beat the crowd. We were just a bit disappointed that it wasn’t communicated ahead of time by Joseph D. (Promoter) that + 1 guest means females are free, but not for the male guests who pay $40 entrance fee. It would have been good knowing that ahead of time, so we would have planned accordingly and had come with girlfriends instead and not make it feel awkward for our male guest.
App is not working
by helenamalia on 2018/05/13 17:11
Somehow I was logged out. I’m guessing the app updated itself. But when I try to log back in and allow Surkus to access my Facebook it says “oops, unauthorized” and my only option is to push okay. It’s been going in a circle this way. There’s no option to log in another way, through entering my Facebook information or phone. I hope you guys can fix this.

Surkus is a scam beware!
by Erica nadal on 2020/03/11 21:59
They make you order items with your own money with the promise to refund you when you review. Then the items are flagged and you can’t review them. They will use this excuse to then ban your account and leave you hanging with hundreds of dollars of purchase. When you ask with you have been banned they will make up lies like you have more than one account. This happened to me and to my friend. Stay away from this scam do not buy anything to review.
Don’t download this BS
by YoureABitchSnapchatCreators on 2019/11/21 16:49
This app promises the world and some change and hardly ever delivers. Downloaded because it said we were guaranteed tickets to post Malone concert and turns out it was a hoax. I don’t believe in getting people to join download and give up secure information just to feel a sense of lost hope. Only way to delete is to email support which tells you all that’s needed to know. Won’t be surprised if we hear a class action lawsuit coming to this company soon. Be blessed
Makes long distance relationships easier!

Please Pay Us
by Meep Meepers on 2018/03/14 19:22
Look, I know you guys have to make a profit, but if you're gonna be specifically recruiting attractive people in places like LA, you can't expect model-level members--especially those on the VIP list--to attend or be satisfied with the amount you guys pay, when you actually do. Nearly every one of your events is "get access" but people with full time jobs can't be bothered to just go to these events with no incentive.
Do Fun Things and Get Cool Stuff!
by Renee CM on 2020/02/09 17:28
Surkus always has concerts or events that are fun and I’m always stunned they’re free and also great deals on other cool things especially health and wellness items. It’s great for an inexpensive date night which every struggling artist or budget savvy person can appreciate.
Surkus
by SuperDean86 on 2018/10/26 23:40
If the event requests you to have a friend sign up to Surkus in order to have the chance at going, you will not be selected. Don’t waste your time on these. Your friends won’t appreciate the spam, especially when none of you get chosen.
They won't take care of you
by Ssydela on 2018/04/19 01:29
I used to love this app and enjoyed going to their events, however, recently I went to one where for some reason I was separated from my plus 1 and he was charged. I was told I'd be refunded for the mistake and they came up with a LAME excuse that if I followed instructions it's impossible that this would have happened. But guess what? I did follow instructions and it DID happen and no one wants to do anything about it. I no longer would recommend.
App has a slight glitch
by SoulFl0w3r on 2018/03/05 04:11
Well i had an event i was casted for March 4, 2018 for an acting showcase , and well i was prompt and on time and stayed for the ENTIRE event ! But upon my arrival i was instructed to check-in at a certain time and i made multiple attempts to check - in and the app just would not work for me to that , and i was considered a No show ! So I’d say that was slightly annoying and it affect my status . But all in all i so far enjoy the app .
Too many notifications
by sam.13456 on 2018/04/20 01:55
This app is sending me notifications NON STOP to the same event even though I haven’t replied yet. It’s really annoying to keep hearing that stupid sound several times a day since I can receive up to 10 invites and each one of them sending 3 more reminders. Those extra reminders are definitely not necessary and sometimes make me decline events just to make it stop.
Good night
by ChiefDragonFlyy on 2018/06/23 10:08
; it was a pretty good night , honored to be invited to this event .. it was kind of wack that security kept me and a bunch of people from out of lure at the beginning of the night so i pretty much stayed in the other building ... but its ohkay , me and my friends were TURNT in out section ... we were the party at the ending tbh , we kept the energy alive ;)
Needs your location and background app refresh on
by beefywoman on 2018/02/08 05:14
Surkus knows what city I live in. Why would you need my location services to be on ALL THE TIME and for background app refresh to be on ALL THE TIME. Just send me an email about an event and I can probably make it there on the subway! Giving you my city should be enough to get me cast in events. I’m not gonna drain my battery and give you access to all of my location data even when I’m not using the app.
I love it.
by Blackswan0407 on 2018/06/15 02:31
Personally I love the app. I'm a long time user and now that I've moved it's given me multiple awesome opportunites that lead to meeting some great people. The apps not perfect, but it's never given me any major problems and it a great way to get out there and meet new people.
ACTING CLASS
by TTYLERTRIPP on 2018/05/18 21:18
I had such a good experience at the acting class at two roads theatre through Surkus. If I hadn’t had this opportunity I wouldn’t have realized how enriching this kind of class and community made me feel. Thank you surkus for helping me discover more social creativity in LA!!
Fun, Easy, Fast
by AceAvalon on 2018/08/09 06:13
I was referred to this by a friend and was immediately intrigued. Great events big and small! I’ve already made reservations at multiple sites and am going out on a regular basis. Awesome experience! Highly recommend! This is a life changing app!
Amazing app
by Lili5046 on 2018/04/19 16:32
A good friend of mine recommended that I download the app. And I have had a lot of fun since then I have been lucky enough to participate in several of the events and you get paid which is always a plus
Horrible Experience
by Aloealoegirl on 2017/11/23 04:26
I’ve had horrible experience with this App and the people who are running the verification processes. First of all they haven’t paid for two campaigns that I was cast for and completed in time. Secondly the team who run the verifications is completely out of loop on the requirements for the campaign and the receipts they need to verify a completion. On top of it all, the customer service reps are very rude. SO not worth the measly $5-10 they offer you. Deleting this App now !
Getting access to events and products?
by Simplyswtt on 2019/12/01 22:20
Love the ease of using this app. It’s great to be able to get exclusive access to events that are sold out and to be able to try products in exchange for a review.
New update with 18 hours time limit is terrible
by Mufflejuju on 2020/02/17 20:39
It doesn’t allow us enough time. I know it’s really easy and quick to purchase items but sometimes you have work all day and go straight to sleep and doesn’t allow you to do it the next day. It’s really dumb. It’s not always easy to see your notifications for the app as well. I missed many offers by accident! At least allow 48 hours.
Faboulous way to get out of your comfort zone

I've been a member since 2015. I've met so many people and have grown my network using this app. There are variety of events to attend. The best is you get paid to show up!
Certain event selections

I have just joined and have done so about 2 weeks ago.. its a great app.. but i see that I'm interested in a-lot of events that i show interest for that I'm not selected.. what increases the odds? As not much shows up in my area of boston.. or when it does its immediately filled and i check daily almost hourly
Love the free events

I have only been a member for two months and i have been to some amazing events. And they all free access. I love to use it when traveling to various cities and looking for something free to do
Unique fun app!

If you’ve forgotten about this app or are skeptical, give it a try! They have tons of events ranging from concerts, acting classes, background extras for tv shows, sample sales and more! It’s exclusive access like no other app!
Free stuff and free events

Why not get products for free and free admission to events? Definitely a worthwhile app. Haven’t noticed any glitches or suspected any spyware. Runs smoothly. I check and use it regularly for the hookup. Check it out
No privacy!!!

I just uploaded the app by an add on Instagram. I read the reviews thought it would be a fun app, buttttt the only thing that app should fix is the ‘guest list’, it should be optional if you want to see whose on the guest vs. if I want to be seen on the guest list. No privacy!!! If you don’t care, then this shouldn’t be an issue for you.
Surkus is the best interactive social all time!

This app is the future of nightlife and everything social. Management is A1 and is on top of everything. The app is constantly improving. This is a great company that knows how to make great experiences for their users.
Incredible events and experiences!

I love using this app to discover events and activations nearby. They always have these awesome events and parks that i can’t seem to find anywhere else. Highly recommended!!
Perfect for outgoing people!

Surkus always gives the funnest events. If you feel like you want to go out more, Surkus gives you lots of offers and some of it even get you paid.
Fun events and cool products to test!

This app is so fun for me. It gives me ideas for things to do. What I like most is the product testing. I check the app daily for new events and cool products to try.
