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.

It used to be rewarding. For now, watch out: e-Reward is now a scam and fraud. They do not reward you, at least in my case, an iTune gift card ($50 for $145 e-reward money). I sent a couple of email to Help desk or Customer service for help, instead, they are kicking the ball around. So be aware, if you saved a large amount for big reward, that is a huge mistake. Reward it whenever you have enough money. Otherwise, you will never see your reward ever again.

I would say they are scammers. You take the time to finish their survey and they don't reward you. I think I have gotten only one honorarium. Afterwards, they stopped giving anything. I kept emails of surveys I completed and deleted ones I didn't qualify. When I got nothing back, I emailed asking about 4 surveys that went unpaid. The first 3, I was told their records showed I didn't finish and they could not tell me more since details are confidential. The fourth study, I was so upset so they didn't even bother responding. Don't waste your time.

I am a REAL person!! I have been using this site for over a year now, and yes, you won't "qualify" for lots of stuff sometimes, oh well!! And yes, sometimes you won't get surveys for a long time, and it takes a while to get points, but it's legit!!! I have received over 75 dollars in American Eagle gift cards (that actually worked thank you!) So I'm not sure about all this airline mile garbage and etc.... But the American Eagle gift cards I've had no issue with, and only took like a week or so to get! Have some patience people... sheesh...

E Rewards is a complete scam. Most of the times they wont let me complete a survey even tho they emailed me 1 minute before to complete a survey. It will take forever just to get five dollars. Not worth it. They also said I would get 250 AAdvantage miles by signing up as a new customer and completing a survey - however they refuse to give the 250 miles after many emails. I have a balance and they say I didnt do any surveys! liars and scammers.

I've participated in E-Rewards for several years. Yes, it does take a long time to accumulate points. Yes, you often don't qualify for certain surveys. BUT, I've always gotten my Macy's gift cards in the mail or my points applied to the airline of my choice.
HOWEVER, something is very wrong with their webpage over the last two days. I click on it and get a notice that "the server is redirecting this request to an address in a way that will never complete." What is going on E-Rewards???

My experience with E rewards has been uniformly negative. In addition to the frequent "you dont qualify" long after they have accumulated significant information, I have been completely unable to redeem any points into my designated award=Southwest Airlines. After waiting sufficient lengths of time to insure credit, I have written to their customer service on 4 occasions. Each time, receive the automated response and noting more.

Most of the time the surveys work. However, I'm a very small business owner, with a state and city business license. However, I don't show up on the e-survey list, apparently -- I get the survey, but I can't fill it out, because my business "doesn't exist". Also, there are periodic technical glitches. Response time is slow. I'm going to try to use my "dollars" acquired and get out of this. I don't know that it's worth the effort.

Just a warning: E-Rewards will sell your personal info to JUNK MAIL companies.
They sold mine to Universal Subscriptions and I began receiving junk mail, seemingly out of nowhere, soon after I signed up and completed a few surveys with E-Rewards. I asked the magazine company who had subscribed me, as I am very careful with my personal info, and they referred me to the above-mentioned junk mailers, who collect personal data and provide it to magazine and catalog companies.
Think twice about joining E-Rewards unless you want real-life spam in your real life mailbox!
