Payment and Rewards

Earn e-Rewards

Earn Opinion Points/e-Rewards currency for taking surveys. Exchange your points for gift cards, magazine subscriptions, hotel reward points, and airline points. Choose from over 30 different retailers to redeem gift cards with, including Best Buy, CVS Pharmacy, Walmart, Macy's and more. You may redeem a gift card only once per quarter with most gift card options.


e-Rewards can also be redeemed towards prizes. Many prizes come in the form of discounts towards purchasing products and services they provide.

Redeem Your e-Rewards Currency

In most cases, your account will be credited as soon as you complete a survey. However, in some cases the credit may take up to 7 days to appear on your account. Similarly, e-Rewards sends most electronic gift cards immediately upon request (within one hour). Most physical gift cards will be sent out within 4-6 weeks of redemption.

e-Rewards also requires mobile and landline verification in order to redeem your rewards. This verification helps you keep your rewards secure. For data security, they will need to verify your account with a valid US mobile or landline number in order to redeem your reward. Once you provide your number, you will receive a verification code via that number that you will need to enter in order to finalize the redemption process.

You can redeem your e-Rewards Currency/Opinion Points as soon as you accumulate enough to qualify for the reward you desire (the lowest gift card option is $10).

This site has gone through many changes. It has high paying survey but you need a lot of credit to get something from them. You get about 1-2 surveys a week and most of the time you do not qualify. It is just the payout system that could be so much better.

They offer bonuses if you can complete a number of surveys in a specified period of time. But, of course, when you are one survey away from the bonus, they do not let you even attempt any of the six plus surveys they have posted available on your account. I find them deceptive and would not recommend them.

Helpful Advice

October 20, 2022 by Mark from United States

This is an updated review from one I gave in summer of 2021.

E-rewards continues to be a worthwhile site as long as the members keep honesty and patience close by.

For users who feel burnt by getting locked out as you were piling up those points- remember, panel currency belongs to the provider, not the end user. Realization of that will save many future one star reviewers heartache. There is no reason, at all, ever, ever, ever to have more panel currency in your account than what's needed for the highest possible reward. That's ~145.00 for a starbucks giftcard in panel currency as of my records in Oct 2022.

For responsible go-getters, each survey session consists of 15 surveys to take, resetting after around 12 hours. Set a target reward, take note of redemption limitations and cash in as soon as you hit the mark.

Don't mess with E-rewards, they pay money to get answers for clients who pay them first so they necessarily have to take inconsistencies seriously.

I respect them for what they are and what they allow me to accomplish. When the day comes that if/when account gets flagged, I will bid them thank you for the good times and shake the dust off my feet.

One key benefit with E-Rewards, as well as their sister site Guest Opinion Rewards Panel, is that you receive panel credit with EVERY disqualification. Not every panel is generous in that sense. Time may be wasted with a later than expected disqualification but users should recognize that admission in any survey here is guaranteed income.

It helps to pay attention to the redemption limits that every reward carries with it. All airlines are once a month, most hotels are once a quarter, and most gift cards are once every 6 months, although a few are once a month. Consider this before you go in gung-ho and build up a hefty amount of reward money but nothing to spend it on. I have found that choice privileges is suitable for me, as they have no redemption limit as of 2022.

Other advice I can think of- never deviate from your personal information. Never speed thru. They do keep track of that. The next time you come to complain about a late disqualification they will look into your account and ban you.

These sites buy the gift cards/points from partners and sell them to you for your time in giving your opinion. Your opinion is payed for by a third party entity that wants some question solved. Remember that the origin of debt here resides with some honest company trying to garner research on a consumer taste or product that they'd like to introduce to the real world markets. Don't fool around with this because the panel site is responsible for every answer they turn in to the company paying them in the first place. Just my two cents-but I have been very successful (so far) on this site.

Love this site

I love e rewards. I do their surveys daily and I use the pay outs for Air Miles. The surveys are always fun and rewards come right away with no issues.

The classic ripoff

April 27, 2022 by Jeffrey from United States

Stay away from this one. What you think you've earned is really a fraction of the amount they show you. You have to complete a survey to see if you qualify for the actual survey and invariably you'll be disqualified after spending quite a bit of your time on it. I had the misfortune of questioning them about a survey and was promptly permanently suspended and was not allowed to redeem what I had spent 2 months earning. Upon researching them, I learned that this is standard procedure for e-Rewards which will come up with any reason they can think of to suspend your account while at the same time sending your responses to their paying clients. If they do respond to your query it will be nasty and without one shred of proof.
