PrizeRebel is a free GPT (get-paid-to) rewards website where members are rewarded for completing tasks and activities in exchange for gift cards, cash, and merchandise.

PrizeRebel launched in 2007 and has grown to become one of the most widely-used GPT websites. It has a worldwide membership of over twelve million people and users from the UK, USA, Canada and Australia have the most opportunities to earn rewards.

Joining PrizeRebel is free and over $25 million dollars has been earned by Prizerebel members. Read on to learn how this website works and how it compares to its competitors.

How PrizeRebel Works

The registration process for Prizerebel is as simple as it gets. Enter your name, email address and desired password on the home page. Then, you’re in. You can register using your Facebook account if you prefer.

Once your registration is completed, you’ll be transferred to the main Prizerebel dashboard. It’s an easy page to navigate, which presents all the money-making opportunities available to you.

This page illustrates the amount of people who have already earned points from the activity, which can be somewhat comforting for new users who remain worried about the legitimacy of the website.

How to Make Money with PrizeRebel

There is a variety of different activities you can participate in in order to build your account balance with PrizeRebel:

  • Fill out Offers

    Complete offers such as signing up for trials, joining mailing lists, etc., in exchange for points.
  • Take Surveys

    Take online surveys and get rewarded for your opinions. Daily surveys are available via the following survey routers: Your Surveys, Samplicious Surveys, Cint Daily Surveys, OxSample Router, Precision Sample Surveys, Tap Research Surveys and more. You’ll always be shown the amount of time it takes to complete a survey and the amount of points on offer. Many members have praised Prizerebel for being among the most generous payers for survey-takers.
  • Watch Videos

    Watch short videos on your desktop and earn points. The points at stake per video watched are minimal, but you can earn an unlimited amount.
  • Complete Tasks

    Complete simple online tasks such as doing internet searches, and watch your account balance grow.
  • Collect daily points

    In your PrizeRebel account will be a daily points page which will list opportunities for tasks that can be completed up to 20x a day. This is an easy way to accumulate extra points.
  • Participate in contests and games

    Earn bonus earnings by participating in contests, raffles, and things like the high-stakes Lucky Numbers lottery game. There are also regular sweepstakes, where you can win prizes simply by spending your accumulated points on virtual raffle tickets. If you’re feeling lucky and enjoy the occasional gamble, this might be a fun way to spend your points.
  • Offer Walls

    Earn points by purchasing items or services from Prizerebel’s retail partners. The Offer Walls page on its website lists all the partners, what you need to buy and the amount of points available for doing so. Many of the offers only require you to take a free trial, answer a survey or download a free app.
  • Referrals

    As soon as you register a Prizerebel account, you’ll be provided with a unique URL to refer your friends and family. When you successfully refer someone to the site, you’ll between earn 15%-30% (depending on your account level status) of the points they earn on an ongoing bonus, excluding promo codes, contest winnings, and their own referral earnings. What’s more, there’s a clever dashboard that allows you to track who has been referred and how much money they have made you.
  • Account Level Extras

    Prizerebel has a nifty loyalty bonus system, which allows you to unlock more account benefits as you accumulate more points. Account level points are based on regular tasks and activities, including your referrals’ earnings. Reach the gold level or above and automatically receive rewards claim codes if they are in stock. The tiers are as follows: Bronze, Silver – 1000 points, Gold – 2500 points, Platinum – 7000 points, and Diamond – 12,000 points.

Did You Know? Rewards processing is completed within 24 hours, but Gold status members and above receive their rewards immediately after request!

Payment and Rewards

Gift Cards

PrizeRebel offers a rewards catalog with over 500+ gift card options. This is far more than the majority of its competitors, and more are being added all the time. Occasionally, Prizerebel will offer discounts on specific gift cards, and these will be advertised at the top of the rewards page.

Alternatively, you may redeem your points balance for a PayPal cash payment or ACH bank transfer.

You can request a reward with as little $5 worth of points in your account. Rewards processing is completed within 24 hours, but gold status members and above receive their rewards immediately after request!

You can also request a $2 Amazon gift card for just 200 points, so you don’t need to worry about dedicating several hours to the website before you‘re able to cash out.

PayPal Cash

Alternatively, you may redeem your points balance for a PayPal cash payment or a Visa prepaid giftcard.

For each of these, you can request a $5 reward with as little 500 points (worth $5) in your account. Many websites force you to earn far more points before these types of cash payments are made available to you, which is a bonus feature of PrizeRebel.

Seriously, Be Aware Of Prizerebel

March 15, 2019 by Brad from Australia

Have been doing Prizerebel surveys for a year and they have been getting steadily worse.
It is now at a stage where one in three surveys are often just not paid.

I recently decided to do a month long survey of the survey site:
Surveys applied for: 116
Surveys successfully completed: 35
Surveys paid for: 24

Save yourself frustration, upset and a reduced sense of self worth.
Do not use these people.

I apologize for your experience and we appreciate your feedback. Over the last year, we have seen a high amount of survey-inventory and higher survey completions by each user. We have not seen any issues of non crediting surveys amongst our users except in rare instances of survey technical issues from our partners. Feel free to contact our support team if you are seeing issues of noncredit within your account.
Be wary

December 29, 2018 by Man from United Kingdom

Only been with PrizeRebel for a short period and things were OK. Payment is quick and plenty of surveys, albeit many rejections (contrary to their claims of having the least rejections of any survey site).

Recently, I noticed a trend of completed surveys being rejected and emailed them to ask them what the reasoning behind this. They didn't read my email properly and gave me a reply which was not relevant to my query. I complained again but they didn't reply. I had 3 more surveys which I had completed but was rejected after completion and I decided I had to investigate myself to find out if this was deliberate. As I am a software developer, I was able to use the Google Chrome debugging tools to track and log the messages and events that were being sent. My suspicions were confirmed and they were deliberately rejecting my surveys,. I suspect they would pocket the payments themselves but I don't have evidence of this (yet). I subsequently sent them another email requesting that they provide evidence that my answers to surveys that were deliberately being rejected, were destroyed. The reason being that this is a potential breach of GPDR regulations. They replied by telling me they have deleted all my account data and closed my account. Again, that was NOT what I requested. Whether they are really stupid or they were playing dumb as a reason to close my account, I don't know.

I can see most people here have had decent experiences, and mine was fine until something went wrong and PrizeRebel started to act in a rather obnoxious manner. Anybody who is considering membership of PrizeRebel should take into consideration that when there is an issue, this company will act in an arrogantly disdainful manner!

Some additional information following the reply from PrizeRebel. The act of rejecting my survey answers AFTER completing the surveys is DELIBERATE. Whether this was PrizeRebel's doing or their client's doing (or even both) is still to be researched. The proof is in how the web messages were sent and I still have logs of the JS client/server interaction.

PrizeRebel say they closed my account due to breach of service, to which I asked what the breach was. Unsurprisingly, they failed to give me a reply, so Prizerebel, please enlighten me here what the breach was.

PrizeRebel failed to follow my instructions when I asked for proof of deletion of data that had supplied to surveys that were deliberately rejected. Their reply was "your account information was removed per GDPR requirements." PrizeRebel, please read instructions correctly! Look back at the emails and you will see that I was not requesting deletion of my account data.

I stress again that PrizeRebel are obnoxious and an arrogant company to deal with. PrizeRebel, if you have further comments to make, I have some more ammo of my own to publish on here!

And one more thing, PrizeRebel, BBB have given me some links to take my complaints further. My data is important and you continue to ignore my messages requesting for proof that my data from unfairly rejected surveys have been deleted. I give you one more week before I make my complaint to the ICO.

The allegation that PrizeRebel would deliberately "reject" your survey completions is baseless and false. As we have explained to you via support tickets we do not make decisions on survey disqualifications nor do we host the actual survey. Survey disqualifications decisions are made by the specific survey client or researcher. We are simply a platform that connects the survey taker with available surveys. If we are not paid for a survey complete when the answers are rejected or if you are disqualified then we would not credit your account with the corresponding points. Your account was closed for breach of terms of services and your account information was removed per GDPR requirements.
Are Their Paid Reviewers On Here? This Has To Be A Joke

September 21, 2018 by Corey from United States

I don't know how anyone claiming they make money from here actually makes money. Let's start from the top

First, the get paid to watch program requires you to refresh the page every few hours and even if you let it run for 24 hours (it has to be a top browser window), you'll make maybe 80 cents for the entire day.

Next are the offers. You simply sign up to a website and get paid, or do you? You sign up to the site it tells you to sign up on, then another survey site opens you have to go through this endless cycle of hoops, complete a bunch of surveys, confirm your email and the offers never pay you. The only offers that are ever paid me were the ones that pay 1 to 2 cents and take 30 minutes to give you credit.

Finally, there are the surveys. I can only assume people leaving them 5 stars are paid reviews. You will get disqualified from nearly every single survey and the thing is, you don't get disqualified from the beginning, it waits a nice 20 minutes until you're halfway done to disqualify you. Extremely frustrating. You have to answer the same questions over and over like your basic demographic information. Why do these surveys not already have this information like Prolific Academy does?

If you're making money on this site, please let us know your secret because actual people who use this site can barely squander up enough to get cashed out. The only positive thing about PR is that they actually do pay you what you're owed.

Hi Corey

Unfortunately, your experience is unusual and is not representative of the experience of our active users. There is a slight learning curve to offers and surveys that may be frustrating to new users. I apologize that we did not have more surveys and offers for your area and we do appreciate your feedback as we work on improving our product and user experience.

Regarding the points you raised.

Videos - Videos are not meant to be a high earning activity, most of our users use this as a supplement to their earnings from offers and surveys.

Offers - There are many reasons why offers may not credit, some of which are the usage of invalid information or that you have previously completed an offer from the same advertiser on our website or another website. We have offers that pay anywhere from 1 cent to $10+ and they all credit for our users on a daily basis.

Surveys - Surveys can disqualify you for various reasons. It could be that you work in a non-qualifying industry or your demographic is not what the survey researcher is looking for. We have no control over qualifications and the timing of disqualifications as it is ultimately determined by the individual survey researcher. While we do not agree with late-stage disqualifications, this is a problem you will encounter on most survey websites and is not within our control.

We offer full transparency on users that are being credited for surveys and offers and that is updated live on our website. There are many users that have been with us for years and are earning hundreds of dollars a month.
Doesn't Payout

September 13, 2018 by Nigel from United States

Tap Research did not credit me three times in a single week when I finished completing its surveys. Last week, it was a survey for 32 points and even I completed it, I never received any points. It happened again today for a survey worth 16 points. Customer service is argumentative and refuses to reward me my points.

PrizeRebel responded to this review on September 15, 2018

Our support team has already responded to your ticket and was in no way argumentative. We informed you that Tapresearch may delay crediting if survey answers need to be manually reviewed. After reviewing your account, our support team informed you that some of the delayed points have indeed been credited to your account.
The worst

May 31, 2018 by Irina from Canada

They blocked me on their Facebook page, then on their website. After I posted my review here, they unblocked me on the website, but kept ignoring all my emails for over a year. They even didn't respond to BBB on my complaint. I asked them to DELETE my account then, because I don't want this company to keep my information. Instead, they just blocked me again saying I am using Proxy, even though I have never used it and even do not know how to use proxy if I ever want to! Weird.

Update: Their response here about using proxy is not true. I have never used proxy "to mask my IP" (and do not know how to even if I wanted to). I provided truthful information: my full name, my mailing address and postal code. Why would I mask my IP? It doesn't make any sense if you use logic. They also blocked me on the Facebook page (why? what is the connection with proxy?) so I am not able to ask any questions there as well. Their "support" on the website never works and emails are never responded. I regret they now own my information I provided to them.

Your account was deactivated for using a proxy to mask your ip address which is prohibited under our terms of service.
