I am a caterer. If I would have booked half the amount of the leads that came through, i would have profited about $10,000. My initial gut feeling told me to be cautious so I contacted Thumbtack and they gave me 20 free credits. Each lead turned out to not follow...Read more
I made a profile, I paid $3.33 to send a bid and since I was the only bidder, I got the lesson. Lesson went smooth and the clients were great and we are meeting next week for lesson number two. Thumbtack is great for a stab in the dark hoping to get some business. ...Read more

I've paid for many quotes, however, they are either not opened or I'm never hired. It seems like a scam. I never receive a call or email.Read more
