Ratings and Reviews
I don't know where to begin.
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.

Wow! What an amazing story. Thank you for being a member and for sharing this with us! :D
Not all events are paid! Still a great app btw😯
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.
Unwilling to accept responsibility for their actions
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!

Hi there! This is definitely unfortunate - but it seems like this may have been caused by a misunderstanding in how to enter this contest.
The contest requires that you submit the link of instagram post you made via the Surkus app so we can verify that you made it - but because you were marked a no-show and your name wasn't on the guestlist, I'm assuming you did not submit the post via the app as instructed on time.
In the future to avoid situations like this, please be sure to read the instructions carefully and submit all items via the app!
Thanks, and feel free to reach out directly to firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any more questions.
