Wow, What a scam!! I just tried to redeem for the first time. It cost $75 in reward money to get $25 off at best buy and you can only use $25 off per purchase. Wish they would have made that known from the start. It takes a minimum 7 hours to accumulate $75 which only turns into $25, that's equivalent to making $3.57/hour. Not even close to worth the time. Don't waste your time

I went and did a cat litter product study thinking that I read I would get $100 dollars just for testing it out my poor cat. I was so happy,did second follow up survey and than this is 5 months later I contact the research company and they just pay Reward it for using them but you get cheated out of money and time. Stay Clear of this place Instead of $100 they call them R$100 points so Now I am out of the time I used to fill out the Survey and a hopeful $100. Their are more survey Sites that are better than this one.

I've been doing online surveys with eRewards for 5 years. It is not a scam. The folks that have complained have not read the instructions for redeeming "money" and have probably not done business with any other online company. Prior to beginning each survey, if you read, you are told that you'll receive a small reward, usually $.25, for partially completing a survey or not qualifying for a survey you started. If you qualify, you'll receive the full amount. This may not be often, but the more you attempt, the more "money" you'll earn. Your balance is always displayed. The rewards available for redemption are not $1 for $1. But, when you find a reward you want to earn and read its "cost", you'll know how much you need to earn it. I always redeem the Ticketmaster gift cards for myself or give them as gifts. I've only had two issues; once I redeemed points/money for a Restaurant.com certificate that never came and erewards never advised me on a resolution after I contacted the customer service via email (only option).
the other issue was when I redeemed a $50 gift certificate for a clothing store; once it was emailed I realized it was just a coupon similar to "$50 off when you spend $125." so, because I've never had a problem with the Ticketmaster gift cards, I'll stick with those.

I have been doing E-reward surveys for about 8 years. I have received gift cards for Best Buy, Macy's, etc. You collect reward dollars and redeem them for gift cards, etc. Of course, the reward dollars are not equal to real money, but it is still worth it. I am not sure why everyone is giving such bad reviews. You can elect how many surveys you want to receive and redeeming for rewards is super easy. I have never had a problem. I always recommend people to join.

I have been doing their surveys for awhile and have accumulated a good deal of money... the other day I decided to use it to obtain e gift cards.. I used $140 and received only a $25 e gift card, the balance NOTHING!! I keep writing to them asking for an explanation and all they tell me is that it will be reviewed. The latest, they tell me that it's going to take a month for an answer... what BS!! they refuse to respond to my inquiry... simply "we have assigned a number" They refuse to give me a phone number so that I can talk to someone.... SCAM!!

If I knew then what I know now, I would have never ever signed up. I highly recommend that you read everything you can on the web before signing up.

I signed up with e-Rewards through Jetblue. HUGE MISTAKE!!! Withing less than a few hours, I started receiving spam emails and emails thanking me for signing up for dozens of spammy websites. The common denominator in all of these registration emails was that they were all registered under someone named Marie Arnold. I would NEVER recommend e-Rewards to anyone!

I collected $32 e-rewards. I just found out that this is NOT REAL MONEY VALUE. I was wondering why I can't redeem for a $25 BestBuy gift card, and realized I need $75 e-rewards! They should just rename the $ into e-Points or something because clearly they are not the same value at all. As soon as I get 35 e-Points to buy a $10 BestBuy giftcard, I'm quitting this stupid survey.

I have done eRewards Medical as I am a physician. Sometimes I have answered their questions for 10 minutes and suddenly they exclude me from their "study"
This is a total SCAM. Don't waste your valuable time. They should be pulled from the internet

while I don't always appreciate having to answer the same demographic question (age, gender, zip code) a few times on the same survey, I have found the program easy to use and very efficient. I have redeemed many items, and they have been delivered as promised with only one glitch one time, which I could never get adjusted. But, compared to other sites with survey programs, these guys are just fine

I've been a member for at least seven years and have never had a problem. I just checked and a couple of restaurant.com gift cards from 2011 are still waiting for me to redeem. My current redemptions are for People magazine, which my mom, sister and daughter all enjoy. It is now good until September 2015. Not a scam and very good service.

E-rewards is a terrible program - I would even say a scam. I joined and started taking surveys. At first all seemed fine. Until I realized I wasn't getting the appropriate credits for all of the surveys that I had taken. To make it even worse, they don't give you a statement that shows how many credits you earned for each particular survey, they just tell you how many credits you have earned for "surveys" as a whole.
In addition, don't bother contacting "member services" about a missing credit - especially if it is a significant one. You will receive nothing but automated responses. And then when you submit an inquiry about how those automated responses didn't answer your question, they will copy and paste the whole list of automated responses which seems to me like a huge "can you not tell we don't care about you?"
I'm not sure how/why certain companies are partnered with them for rewards but I am disappointed that I was urged to join through a program I was already in.
Besides all that, from what I have read, it seems like they also misuse your information. I can't believe I actually gave them some of mine.
E-REWARDS IS A SLIMY, CHEATING, LYING COMPANY. DON'T JOIN E-REWARDS. DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME, DON'T WASTE YOUR ENERGY. JUST DON'T DO IT.

I`m a gipsy, and like E-rewards US, especially its iPhone app. I earn there Emirates miles via fake ip-address (It`s not available in my native country Romania). Got enough miles for free RT flight already. Wanna fly in Business, and with God`s help in First class Emirates. Got my surveys 1-2 a day, and have a lot of free time to fill`em when I trade on my market place. Good luck to everyone, and choose right redemptions!

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
