e-Rewards Review Earn Rewards for Completing Surveys.jpg

Sup, guys? It’s time for another survey site review. This time I’ll be reviewing e-Rewards. I’ve heard a lot about the site: some good, some not-so-good. Well, that piqued my interest. I decided to try the site out for myself. Read on for my e-Rewards review!

How Does e-Rewards Work?

Once you sign up (IF you get to sign up - more on that later), you will receive email notifications about available surveys. You’ll be getting surveys pretty often on this site, so always make sure to check your email inbox. You wouldn’t want to miss out on an earning opportunity.

Each survey you complete gives you a specific number of points, which you can use to buy rewards on the site.

Payout Options

This is where I lose my enthusiasm for this site. Other sites will give you the option of converting your points to either cash (which is usually sent via PayPal or cheque) or as a gift card for online retailers (usually Amazon , iTunes, and Google Play Store).

But on e-Rewards, you can only use your e-Rewards Currency / Opinion Points to redeem rewards from their rewards center. Okay, let’s unpack that. You can only use your earnings to buy stuff from the site itself. And the site profits from those sales, of course. So, in effect, you’re returning your earnings back to them. Yeah, no. That isn’t such a good set-up.

I’ve always been skeptical about survey sites with their own pseudo-currency. You’re a survey site, not a country. Give me points, sure. But let me redeem those points as regular American dollars, thank you very much.

How to Join e-Rewards

So you wanna join e-Rewards? Well, the good news is that registering is free. The bad news is you’re going to need an invitation from an e-Rewards partner just so you could join. I used to think that the more people get access to a survey site, the better. But judging from the closed-door policy of e-Rewards and a few other invite-only sites, that is not the case.

Anyways, I had to ask a few of my friends if any of them had an invite. I lucked out – a buddy had a spare invite for me, which is why I was able to try out the site. But did I really have to do that? I was lucky, but other interested people might not have the connections to get in.

For what it’s worth, US residents ages 14 and up can join… provided they find someone with a spare invite.

The Pros and Cons of e-Rewards

It may seem like I’m not too hot on this site. But before you start thinking that I want to skewer e-Rewards, allow me to break down my opinions into Pros and Cons of using the site. I actually think the positives are at the very least balanced with the negatives. Here they are:

The Pros

The earnings for each survey is clearly stated

I love this. With other sites, I need to do a combination of mental math, and, er, divination to know exactly how much I’ll be earning for a particular survey. When you get an email notification from e-Rewards about an available survey, you will also know how much the pay out for it will be, and how long it will take to complete it. This translates to a pretty good user experience. Triple thumbs up!

You get to take lots of surveys

Some survey sites are like virtual ghost towns. You sign up, maybe take a few surveys, and then wait a few days just to take another survey. On e-Rewards, you get up to five surveys a week! That’s a pretty good number, and increases your earning potential significantly.

You get paid even if you get disqualified from taking a survey

Getting disqualified from completing a survey while you’re taking it is one of my biggest pet peeves with survey sites. So many sites do that, and I don’t get it; shouldn’t you have been pre-qualified before the site assigns you those surveys? Because as it is, they’re just wasting your time.

You can get DQ’ed on e-Rewards, but at least they pay you 50 cents if that happens. That helps lessen the sting of getting booted out of taking a survey. Here’s hoping this practice becomes an industry standard.

The Cons

No cash payout

Yeah, I’ll say it again - no cash option sucks. It sucks so bad, I’ve stopped using this site, even if they’re pretty good overall. I don’t want to spend my earnings on whatever stuff the site is selling. I want good old fashioned cash, or at least a gift card for any of the larger online retailers.


I get the impression e-Rewards is like the popular kids’ table. You can’t join without someone from that group co-signing you. But with so many good survey sites out there, why should you even bother trying to find an invite for this e-Rewards?

The Verdict: Legit or Scam?

They’re not perfect, but I would still declare e-Rewards legit! If you can get an invite to join, and are okay with their payout options (or lack thereof), e-Rewards should be a – wait for it – rewarding site for you to try out.

I started using e-rewards about a year ago and I already accumulated a lot of points. This website is very easy to use and I always get my reward. I use this in my leisure time cause this one is a totally legit money making website! Whenever I need my Starbucks card refilled, I just take available surveys to earn points and exchange for a reward. I really enjoy taking their surveys because I always get paid a little something even if I didn't get qualified. Usually, I will receive an email inviting me to complete a survey, sometimes I use the app to take surveys but some surveys can only be done using a PC or a laptop. They have an excellent customer service as well. Their customer service representatives are very professional and courteous, they always help me whenever I encounter a problem such as completing a survey and not being credited.

Nice review. I like this website cause they are legit and the compensation is fair. I signed up to this website a couple of months ago. I was invited by Gamestop, so I gave it a try.

I enjoy taking surveys from this website because it's easy to complete (not all, but most of it). Earning points from this website is easy. I regularly use my points to purchase Game Stop PowerUp.

If you want to try this website and you're looking to earn some cash, then this website isn't for you. You can't really make some real money here unlike other get-paid-to sites, that has PayPal as an option for payout. You can only use your points to redeem rewards from their rewards center, in short, it's like returning your earnings back to them.

But for me, it's fine as long as I'm getting something from this website.

I have been a member of e-Rewards for many years now, and I enjoy being one. I was invited by one of their partners through email, and I was amazed because you can't just sign up and be a member of this website unless you were invited.

Their surveys are as described. They are interesting and is not time-consuming, totally worth the effort!

Rewards come faster than any other survey site, and I seldom encounter a problem redeeming my rewards. I often redeem my points for Starbucks and Best Buy gift cards

Though it's true that you can't really make some real money from this website, but the rewards they offer are excellent.

In conclusion, I would say that everyone should give this a try.

The time spent in e-Rewards filling surveys is a time well spent. Surveys are easy, fun, and I always get credited.
In most cases, I get credited as soon as I complete the survey. However, in some cases, the credit may take up to 7 days to appear my account. It's the only thing I don't like about the website.
On the other hand, e-Rewards sends most electronic gift cards immediately upon request (within one hour). It's quite fast compared to most survey sites.
Though they don't have Paypal option, it's okay cause they offer a lot of gift cards to choose from. I often use my points for magazine subscriptions, Macy’s gift cards, and restaurant coupons.
Their referral program is another way to earn points. I currently have 56 referrals, and I benefit from it.
I'm happy with e-Rewards, they are definitely legit.

The only way to join e-Rewards and its advantage from other sites is through invitation. Yes, it is free to join, but you cannot just sign up for an account if you happen to just stumble upon the site. You need to be invited by one of what they call partners.
So if you happen to be invited to e-Rewards, give it a chance, it's worth it.

e-Rewards is the very first survey site I had joined with, and I really enjoy it. It's easy to accumulate points to reach rewards required points to redeem. Also, I rarely get disqualified for surveys, and I find it great.

The only issue I have is that you can only redeem a reward from the same company once every three months or quarterly, but it's not a big deal as they have vast rewards to choose from.

Yes, e-Rewards is invite-only. And yes, I think being invite-only kind of sucks. This is purely theoretical, but I think the reason for that is that e-Rewards isn’t able to attend to a large user base. If anyone has first-hand info on why this site is by invite-only, then please correct me. I mean, shouldn’t a rewards site want lots and lots of new members? Being invite only seems counterintuitive to what a rewards site wants to achieve – develop a big user base, and use the high number of members to attract bigger and better-paying advertisers. Most rewards sites I’ve used are always quick to point out how many members they have. But with e-Rewards, you need to be lucky enough to know someone who can let you get a foot in the door. And like I mentioned earlier, this really sucks.

Another thing about e-Rewards that sucks is the fact that you can’t get your earnings in cash. If you don’t need cash, good for you. But if you’re like me, that’s kind of a deal-breaker.

That isn’t to say e-Rewards isn’t legit. It is legit, and it’s worth trying – that is, if you could get an invite and membership first.

The surveys are straight forward, and I seldom encounter a problem with content not loading, error, etcetera.

Earning potential is decent as long as you do a lot of surveys or complete other offers every day. This site doesn't have a Paypal option to cash out points, so if you're looking to earn cash, this website isn't the one to go to.

e-Rewards is a legit site. The only thing I don't like is I rarely finish a survey. It's a bit annoying cause after 15+ minutes of answering questions; I'm suddenly told I don't meet their criteria and they wasn't the one they are looking for. I know, e-Rewards doesn't have anything to do with this but the companies or offer walls that are in this site.

All in all, I'm satisfied with this site. I'll continue being a member as long as they pay me.

I was a member of e-Rewards for a couple of years. Over that time I had earned a lot of points and gotten a couple of gift cards.
However, About a month ago, I completed a survey but at the end instead of getting the usual conclusion, it said I had completed the survey already (which I know I hadn’t). I sent an email to their support and their response was that I didn’t qualify for the survey but since I had spent so much time on it, they gave me a partial credit.
Then a couple of days later, I went to log in but I received an error message that I can't log in due to inactivity. A glitch I thought. Again, I wrote to their support. After about 3 days, I received an email that said my account had been indefinitely suspended due to violations of their terms and conditions. I’ve asked for proof of such violations but I’m not expecting a response since there were no violations. I hope I resolve this issue so I can continue working with them.

Chiming in with my own short e-Rewards review. In a nutshell, I am not a huge fan of invite-only rewards programs, but something about this site intrigued me enough to make my own investigation. So yeah, I have not been a member - at least not yet - but I wanted to know what makes this one similar or different from other prestigious invite-only survey sites - say, like PineCone Research (a fave of many here, it seems).

By reading up on various reviews from people who have actually become a member of e-Rewards, I was able to gauge several things.
  • They are no longer BBB accredited! Big fat juicy red flag right there.
  • Some have gone through unexplained account deletion with nary a “yoohoo” from the admin.
  • There is no cash-out option available either by PayPal, check, or what-have-you. So that’s a big nah-uh from me, especially since I already have several trusted survey sites that pay me in Amazon gift cards - and pay me fast, at that.
So all in all, I don’t really mind the exclusivity thing going on with this site.

I have never encountered an issue receiving my rewards with this platform. It takes longer than I’d like (it advertises taking up to 14 days, but it’s usually in within 2-5 days with the exception of taking a week the first time I ever redeem a reward) while I wish it posted within 24-48 hours. Also, you can’t cash your points for cash but upon being invited and making your account just a brief look through the site will make it obvious you can’t get cash payouts for the surveys.

The negative side that I see about this site is they have a pretty limited selection of rewards. Mostly, airline and hotel point rewards; the one that I usually redeem is the PowerUp reward from Gamestop. If they ever took that off, I doubt I’d continue to use their service unless it was replaced with something else I could use.

If you are looking for a site that will allow you to transfer your money to a PayPal account or get a check mailed to your house, e-Rewards is not the place for you.

Given the chance that what you want is to get some gift cards, or exchange your money for airline miles, then maybe this panel can be useful to you. However, you must remember that in order to become a member, you need to get invited in the first place, which means that you will have to find your way into their membership.

All in all, I'm a satisfied member of this panel. Totally legit.
