I've been a member for a few years now, and have never had a problem redeeming a reward. It's either $25 GameStop e-gift card or $25 iTunes code. As soon as I have enough...I redeem. I always take a screen shots of the amount of $$ I have and what I redeem. If I take the time to take a bunch of surveys, I expect to redeem for something...or I will take it to a whole other level ;-)

I've gotten up to $75 and redeemed a $25 Gamestop Gift Card. Talk about hard work. Took a while but I got the damn thing fast after redeeming. That is all I did and that was once so that is all I can say. So good luck I guess.

well i thought they were ok. but now im not so sure i did enough surveys to earn the $60 e rewards needed to buy some hertz gold points. i figured it was worth a shot since it gets you 500 points and that is enough for a weekend day rental. got the reward through and it said it would take a few weeks to post to my account. the points posted to my account on the 17th on july and the very same day a rental was booked using my gold points profile by some company that i have never heard of in a state i have never been to. so im thinking it has to do with e rewards mis using my information

You work and work completing surveys to finally earn enough points to redeem them,and then they disappear with no reward issued. I have used their online "contact us " form 8 times on this one issue and all I get is an automated response back and issue has not been resolved. Points were deducted from my account and no rewards issued. This has been going on over 2 months with no resolution. Stay away, it's waste of time with no actual reward and no other means of contacting the company to resolve it, than their non-responsive "contact us online form"

Surveys are usually organized and easy to complete. The rewards system is a problem, offers are not as good as they might be, and Restaurant.com is a complete scam. Do not opt for e-rewards offers for Restaurant.com. That site only offers limited benefits for e-rewards patrons. e-rewards should not be offering anything from Restaurant.com. There is a class action suit against Restaurant.com for fraudulent practices.

I have been spending hours on your surveys, but the rewards are not worth it. They are a big joke! I am sure you can do better, send a check for the real amount I really earned.

I have been begging for a pass word in order to log in to my account. I had computer repairs and my e-Rewards were deleted from my computer programs. I never had problems before getting help with a problem. I have made quite a bit of money with e-Rewards and appreciate it. But now I am only getting generic answers to my problems. I have begged them for help but continue to get their generic reply's.

E-rewards was okay for a few years. But lately, there have been many more broken surveys. They used to be responsive and helpful if a survey croaked, but I only get a response to maybe a third of my complaints.
Even worse, now I keep seeing where people get to use their points for really good stuff like cards to good stores and Starbucks. My only choices are magazines I either have already or care nothing about or cannot be delivered to rural areas, restaurant.com, Omaha Steaks, the Macy's rip-off $70 for a $25 gift card, or a huge bunch of hotel and airline points that I would never use.
Here's the thing, when I go to the E-rewards home page, there are icons for good stuff like Amazon and Best Buy. When I log in, those icons disappear. I clicked on one for Neiman Marcus and went through all of the steps to redeem my points for that one. Almost done, then I'm asked to sign in again. Everything disappeared and I got an error message.
I am furious. My repeated inquiries regarding this issue are completely ignored and there is no longer any contact information except an onsite email form.
Avoid these scammers.

I have been a member for over 8 years and while there were minor irritations from time to time ERewards performed well. However, beginning in late spring of 2013 things changed. I had joined through HiltonHonors and always redeemed for their points. For 7 years $100 ERewards dollars equaled 7000 HHonors points. Then when ERewards was having all of its computer problems my award chart changed to $125 for 7000 HHonors points. After dozens of very slow to respond emails which finally said the problem was all of Hilton's doing, I contacted HHonors. They very promptly responded that my award chart with ERewards should be $100 for 7000 points just like always! Now ERewards refuses to respond to my emails. I don't know if they have changed hands, moved their customer service overseas to folks that really don't care, or what. But, long story short - they are no longer a reputable organization.

Ernest I totally agree with you, this company is a SCAM JOB FROM YOU KNOW WHERE? (there e rewards this time im not cussing) little babies, cant handle so cuss words. Virgina ? you're lying or stupid good luck.Shannon you live where? shut up you don't know diddle E rewards is a scam in the worst form and when you write to them asking about the issue, they send you a standard generated BOT response. more and more companies are doing this and they are leaching off old people and sorts. My suggestion is to boycott these companies for even having E rewards on their agenda's. Im not done with you e rewards you wasted my time and i'm not happy i will find a way to bring you down and that people is worth my time.

I have seen posting that call this a "scam". Not true. I have been doing the surveys for a couple of years and have eaten at a number of very good restaurants. True at times a person will not qualified but you will know that within the first minute or two. Small price to pay for acquiring hundreds of dollars in certificates. I am ask to respond to a survey 3-4 times a week, if not more often.

I really hope someone brings a lawsuit against them. After reading the other replies here, I can see a lot of similar comments about what they are doing. Its plain stealing.

E-Rewards used to be ok. They have gone downhill fast the past year.
Most of their surveys you do, you will spend 30 minutes only for it to tell you at the end that you don't qualify, or that they already have enough surveys from your class.
What they are doing is getting FREE surveys taken, and pocketing the money themselves.
They will also claim you finish a survey, only for you to never receive the credit for it weeks later.
They have bad rewards now. The only good reward they have is the Gamestop card, but not long ago they jacked up the survey rewards points required to get it, big time. But that doesn't really matter any more because you can never get rewarded for your time anymore. Its plain stealing and illegal.

I am not getting my surveys like I did in the beginning. At the end of one survey I clicked "here" and lost my credit.

If they had a "So-So" that's how I'd rate this site. I've been a customer for many years and I have racked up a fairly large balance. My complaint is the rewards that are offered. Sub par to useless. I don't fly, rent a car, play golf and I certainly don't want a magazine subscription! The few rewards that are decent, such as AE (American Eagle Clothing) one can only buy a gift certificate once every six months. And restaurant.com is totally not worth it. I had to change a restaurant pick 3 time as the first two went out of business before the person I gave the gift cert to got to the restaurant. And now, most the restaurants are "no-names". I keep suggesting more useful things, such as an oil change for instance, but they're just not listening. SIGH!

I have been an e-rewards member for almost two years. I get 4-6 emails a week, sometimes more, and have redeemed rewards about 4 times now. The gift cards take about 4-5 weeks to deliver, but magazines showed in under 2 weeks. It takes some time and dedication to build up your reward money but it is free stuff for simple surveys so no complaints!!

I have been a member for about 2 years... everything was fine until this past July I noticed I wasnt getting any emails.... tried to sign into my account and it said my email was not valid. Someone had gone in and changed the email address and reedeemed my $250 in rewards for e gift certificates. Customer service helped me change my email address back... today I notice once again, no emails lately...and once again my email address is not valid. I purposely changed the password to a curse word when this happened before, just in case someone had hacked my computer...(i live alone so it couldnt have been anyone in my house),... So this leads me to believe that it is an internal thing with erewards... I believe an employee is the one who is stealing peoples rewards. waiting now to hear back from them again... i did not get the rewards back the last time because they had been redeemed.

I used my rewards cash to purchase 11 issues of People Style Watch magazine and two months later I still have not received my magazines, nor a reissue of funds or any help to resolve this matter. I had no problems with getting my Starbucks gift card, but the above situation is
driving me mad.

I never had a problem with the company, until now. All of a sudden my email address is no longer valid and when I contact them I do not receive a reply. I have over $100 built up in rewards but can't access them.
