INTERESTING SURVEYS AND A LOT OF THEM,BIG PROBLEM IS THEIR REDEMPTIONS REALLY STINK, THEY CLAIM TO HAVE AMAZON CARDS BUT WHEN YOU TRY TO USE THEY SAY NOT AT THIS TIME IT TAKES FOREVER TO ACCUMULATE ENOUGH POINTS TO CASH OUT.IF YOU HAVE A LOT OF TIME TO WASTE....................
E-rewards is okay as everyone else has said if you travel a bit. I just wait until I can cash in for a $25 Macy's giftcard. The drawback is that it costs $75 of the rewards money to get a $25 giftcard, AND there is only one gift to redeem per quarter. Bummer. Still, I like the site
How is it this panel calls itself E-Rewards, yet the actual rewards are so lame? Use to be this site offered rewards I actually used, like Borders certificates or Target gift cards. The vast majority are now airline or hotel points, which might be fine if you travel for business or are retired and constantly on vacation, but that's got to be maybe 10-15% of the population? Most the rest of the rewards require you buy something first, in other words you need to spend 20 dollars and up at some site or restaurant just to get the reward. Then there's the magazine subscriptions, about the only thing I use, but the selection could use more broad based titles like Smithsonian or Entertainment Weekly than narrow niche publications like Cigar Aficionado. E-Rewards REALLY needs to hook up with Paypal or such and start offering cash payments or prepaid cards.
On the plus side, the site does send out a fair amount of surveys per week and the amount given is worth the time spent. Oh well, points never expire, so guess I'll just keep taking surveys and sitting on my $700 plus points until they come up with something worthwhile rewards wise.
There are a number of things this company does that I think are shady if not straight up fraud. It would be a good matter for a class action attorney to look into, because it seems to me that it may be actionable.
First, they frequently decline to credit your account for the amount promised when you agree to do a survey and actually complete it and give them your data. Instead, after you answer tons of surveys questions, giving substantial data on your purchasing practices, vendors, opinions and personal information (way above and beyond screener questions) and complete the survey, you get a message that says you don't qualify or something to the effect that they have already reached their quota. Thus you do not get the promised compensation for completing the survey, even though you have done so.
Second, the value of the points are listed in dollars, so it's represented that you will earn $10 (or whatever the survey offers), but in actuality these "dollars" don't correspond to money What you actually get is worth much much less - pennies on the dollar. I for one, was so mislead that I didn't know this until after I'd given them tons of valuable data (which they are selling and making money off btw) when I tried to collect my reward funds and found that they were worth next to nothing compared to the dollar amount my account shows I have accrued.
Like other reviews this survey place used to be good, but is not anymore.
Like many have said, you will spend half an hour filling out a survey only for it to tell you that they already have their quota of surveys filled for it, or that you don't qualify.
I just got done a few minutes ago filling out a 40 minute survey which it never gave me any credit for. What a complete waste of time.
They are getting free surveys completed by asking all the questions first then telling you that they already had enough people for the survey or other reasons. Its pure theft.
Normally the surveys that ask you all the personal information first are more likely to be the surveys you will get nothing for.
