I've been signed up with thumbtack for about 5 months now.. A number of times I've seen the same jobs come back through.
One I just quoted only got two quotes, my quote was reviewed, and then the job was reposeted a few days later. Same description, same name.. At least Thumbtack is making money. I did land one local project, but there are a ton of incredibly lowball requests that supposedly get bid out within an hour or two, reasonable paid jobs are often bid out before my email comes in..
Useful? I don't know whether to spend More time watching thumbtack like a cat, or go elsewhere.
