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.

Prizes

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).

Good at one time, but terrible now

November 16, 2021 by Joe from United States

I was a member of E Rewards for many years, but I decided to end my membership. Here's why:

1. At least once a day, I'd carefully answer all of the questions in a survey, but the survey would terminate me on the last screen and I would not receive a reward for completing the survey. It's INCREDIBLY frustrating to spend 15 or 20 minutes on a survey, and not receive credit for it.

2. E Rewards has steadily lowered the rewards they pay for both partial and completed surveys. At one time, E Rewards paid $1.00 for partially completing a survey, but it's down to $0.25 now. Likewise, in the past, members would receive $4.00 or $5.00 to complete most surveys, but now the bulk of E Rewards' surveys pay just $0.75 if you complete them. In the past year, E Rewards has started paying $0.25 to complete some surveys, the same amount they pay for partially completing a survey, which means you get paid exactly the same whether you spend 10 minutes to complete a survey or error out after 30 seconds.

3. As others have said, E Rewards will deactivate accounts without warning, for no reason at all. This happened to me at least once every two or three months, and although I'd always been able to get my account reactivated without losing any of my points, I knew at some point E Rewards would refuse to reactivate my account and I'd lose all of my points.

Other people on this website have expressed frustration about how E Rewards keeps getting worse. If people were to stop taking E Rewards surveys, they would go out of business. However, as long as people continue to participate in E Rewards, their management has no incentive to change their business practices.

Freezing accounts

November 4, 2021 by ann from United States

I have been a member for years of E-rewards, opinion world and valued opinion surveys. They are all owned by dynata. I have had my accts. frozen numerous times over the years I have been a member. I get the same canned response I did something wrong. I ask what I did wrong and get another canned response. They never say specifically what I did because they know I did nothing wrong and can't prove it. I have done nothing wrong and each time I went through the BBB to get my accts reactivated. This last time I cashed out almost all my points with opinion world and within a week all 3 survey sites were frozen.
As for surveys yes I did get a lot of them but probably 90% I did not qualify for. The survey would say 5 min. but after answering the same screening questions the survey would suddenly be 20 min. I would spend time taking the surveys to often get an error page and unable to finish the survey or at the end get a message I did not qualify or survey full. They got my answers and I got nothing for my time. I would warn anyone who does any of these survey sites to cash out ASAP and not let points sit until you have a lot.

Tired of the lies

August 19, 2021 by Constance from United States

Amazingly I'm not one of the MANY people who had their accounts terminated when they tried to cashout. If you are unaware of this serious situation, read through hundreds of people posting on here about it happening to them. I also know someone who logged into their account to see a message claiming they had cancelled the account themselves, which was obviously false since he had unredeemed earnings in his account. Nobody cancels their own account before cashing out their earnings! But I guess that's something new that's happening maybe so they can try to lower their stats of terminated accounts in case a class action suit happens. Regardless, although I know people who have had their account terminated or "cancelled" during the past couple years, that's not the purpose of my review.

What I've become completely fed up with is how e-Rewards lies about the surveys they offer to you. For example, let's say their invitation to a survey offers $3 of e-Rewards currency (~$1 in real money value) for a "5 minute" survey. You think that's not bad so you click on it. Firstly, before you ever get to the actual survey site, they send you to their site to answer a few minutes of their own general questions supposedly to help find other surveys for you. That wouldn't be so bad but a) it happens before every single survey and b) half they questions are either already answered in your profile or you've repeatedly answered the same question several times recently. So that's all usually a waste of time, every time. Then you finish that and finally get transferred to the actual survey. And, I am not kidding you, on the very first page of it, the people behind the survey will give you the real estimate of how much time it takes. Keeping with the example above, they tell you it should take 10-15 minutes. In other words, 2-3 times as long as what e-Rewards claimed. By the time you finish everything, the pre-survey questions + the actual survey questions, that 5 minutes initially quoted is often more like 15 minutes. $1 of real world value for 15 minutes equals $4 an hour. I could give you more example but you get the idea. The total times spent is often much longer than the invitation said and turns out to not have been worth your time. And I think e-Rewards knows that, which is why they routinely show a survey time which is way less than the actual survey tells you it will take right at the beginning of the survey. And e-Rewards has to see that when they publish the survey yet instead of honestly quoting the time the survey creators provided, they show routinely show much shorter, completely unrealistic times instead. And I can say they are unrealistic both from personal experience and the undeniable fact that e-Rewards themselves have terminated numerous accounts using a reason of rushing through surveys. It's a no-win situation. Either be prepared to spend way more time on surveys than advertised and/or be prepared to have your account terminated for rushing through them trying to finish within the time they initially said it would take.

Rewards taken by site

January 1, 2021 by brian from United States

E-Rewards took $175.00 worth of credits from me. Account suspended for no legitimate reason. I had been with them for nine years. Avoid this survey site. Very dishonest.

They will keep your rewards

November 5, 2020 by Kathleen from United States

After being a member for years, my account was permanently suspended and I am unable to cash out my rewards. The only response they will give me is that they cannot give me any specific details. I have never broken the rules, rushed through surveys, or gave false information.
I was saving up my rewards for months and when I went to cash out, it wouldn't let me. When I inquired, they told me my account was permanently suspended and I can't cash out my rewards.
