I have only done it for a month and not redeemed anything yet. The only reward I am even trying for is the express gift card. I did not see other gift cards offered (such as Itunes or Target) like other people have mentioned.
Are reward options different for different people?

I must say, I agree with not getting many surveys, but I don't see it as a bad thing. I've only been a member for less than a month, and I've been able to complete about 4 surveys and already redeemed points for borders bucks.

I have been with this program for 4+ years. I was invited by American Airlines which is no longer a sponsor. Back then you could get American Airline miles. The program has degraded over the years to being a magazine subscription service.

I have only been a member 3 months now and overall I am pretty satisfied. My only complaints are that I really don't receive many surveys at all. The few surveys I get, I end up not qualifying for or they have reached max for my demographics. Total, I actually had the opportunity to fully complete one survey since I have been a member. What I don't get is how I don't qualify for a survey invitation Erewards has screened and sent me? The info I fill out is the same Erewards already has on me...Don't they say they pre-screen the e-mails to fit the respondents

I've been a member for not even a year now and have redeemed for borders rewards and gamestop, as well as several magazine subscriptions. I am very happy with them, and recommend the site to friends. Yes it takes time, but it is well worth it in my opinion. To all who say that they have already reached the number of responses for that survey, think about it everyone. If you need x number of responses from a certain segment of the population and you have that, then anyone after they won't need. And they have to ask you questions to see if you qualify. How else will they know?

I've been doing for about 5 months now, few hours a week when ever the survey shows up. is something to do while watching tv or chatting on forums. i also got lucky cause i got invited by gamestop and can claim 25$ gift cards. i know someone that can do blockbuster gift cards. also at times there are special offers from places like this month i can pick from target/itunes/american eagle. i've managed to get enough for the 25$ gift card in the time it was redeemable again so this is a great site for me. is there others similar someone can point me towards? ty

I have been a reviewer with e-rewards since 2006 and the company has been good up to about 3 months ago.
I think they have become predatory, they publish surveys ask poignant questions and in the results they state that you are not qualified, required number of responses have been received or the survey has expired. This is even after immediately opening received mail from e-rewards. And not crediting my account ….. After asking a slew of important questions.
I am very disappointed and will now promptly remove myself from the company, as I view their tactics as dishonest.

I have been a member since 2003 and have cashed out over "$500" worth of stuff. Omaha steaks coupons are nice, magazines too. You don't make any real month with this program, but if you like free stuff and coupons then I recommend it.

I've been a member for over 2 years now and I am terribly disappointed with the rewards they offer. There are several better survey/reward companies out there, which I am also a member of. Most of the rewards now are those that you have to buy something in order to apply the credit toward... like $10 off of $50 at Macy's. I have used the 2 Previously Viewed DVD's from Blockbusters in the past but you have to wait 6 months to use it again. I'm concerned with them expiring my points again without notice, so I feel the need to cash them in while I can, before I cancel the account with them. Sadly, it's just not worth the time.

Not everyone has access to the same rewards. I never see any gift cards, but a friend of mine is able to cash out for $25 Macy's GC's. Seems like it depends who the sponsor was when you originally signed up. Doesn't seem right.

I have been with e-rewards for about 6 months now. I have not had any problems. My only complaint is there is not a very big variety of rewards. But, I got a American Eagle gift card so far and it came very quickly with no problems. Havent had to deal with customer service and hopefully I wont have to after reading some of these negative reviews.

Perhaps I am just lucky but I get about 3 $25.00 Gamestop gift cards a year. My goal is to hoard them so when the next-next gen consoles come out I can get a Xbox for half price. And if I get antsy I will just pick up a PS3 for half price. I just hope Gamestop does not cease participation in the E-Rewards program because that is the only reward I care about.

Most of the time, they do NOT make you answer more than a couple of questions if you aren't who they're looking for, but the rewards ARE puny. I participate for airline miles (always can use those) and because some of the surveys are almost fun. You should be someone with time on your hands for this to be something you'll like.

I have been an e-rewards member for about 6 months and it seemed like a good idea at first but when I went to go redeem my points and collect my reward I never received it and I feel like I just wasted a lot of time for nothing. so I would say that this site is garbage and their are plenty of better sites out there.

They will often have you fill out the entire survey and then say the have their quota from your group and not pay you for the survey
3:39pm on November 2nd, 2009
They have you do a survey and when it is over and they have all the info they say you do not qualify for payment.

Perhaps all the people complaining never really took the time to even finish one long survey. I have been a member of e-rewards for two years now, and I've received many American Eagle gift cards. I have so many free magazine subscriptions that I get every month and even got Hilton Honor points for free nights.
This program is not for everybody, if you are not willing to spend some time in front of the computer answering questions, then I wouldn't even consider it.
Nothing is free in this world, so appreciate the little they provide and enjoy, if you are going to be complaining just give it up.

e-Rewards is a scam and a waste of time. First off they get you into all of these `surveys' which you almost NEVER can complete because they are tailored just such that you spend a huge amount of time answering and just before the end you answer some question not to their `liking' and the drop you out of the 'survey'. Up pops a window stating that ... they already have enough of your type opinions for this survey... and they bounce you out to some 3 or 4 question lifestyle page and then back to your e-Opinions account page. That's it. No credit for all the time you spent on the 'survey', nothing, nada, zilch, zip and just a few cents credit for their lifestyle questions.
@...they already have enough of your type opinions for this subject...WTF? What kind of `survey' is that? You've completed 80% or so and they run across an answer they don't like, so your bounced out and your time and effort are for nothing! Is that a 'survey' or a tailored rip-off?
This must be where all those BS product claims beginning with 'A nationwide survey concludes...' Yeah, right! More like 'A nationwide survey tailored exactly to our desired results concludes...'
Then there's the 'products' (aka. 'promotional discounts)' that's available with your e-Rewards `cash' worth about $0.25 on the dollar. So...
If you are 'fortunate' enough to get through their 20 minute `survey' in a few days you may see a credit to your account for $5 (which is really about $1.25). That equates to about $3.75 an hour for your time and the ability to spend it on a product or service you probably don't want or need.

The quality of redemptions for your reward dollars is terrible now. Over the last couple of years I have been able to redeem by reward dollars for gift cards from Target, Starbucks, and Macy’s but e-Rewards no longer offers gift cards as an redemption option and Target and Starbucks are not even in the program. What are left are magazine subscriptions, airline miles, and various coupons, which as rewards go are simply not worth your time. The reward payout has also declined significantly and its not worth it to do a 30 minute survey for $4 when 75% into the survey the sponsor decides “you don’t qualify” and I end up getting 50 cents. Was a good program in the past but there are better alternatives now that actually pay you cash for your time.
6:47pm on September 6th, 2009
Just as other posters have commented, many times I've spent a lot of time doing a survey and then when it is almost completed it says I did not qualify. When I signed up there were quite a few rewards to choose from. After I had accumulated a good amount of money I got a notice saying that my rewards were about to expire. When I went to claim my rewards, there was absolutely nothing that I used---all the good rewards like Target & Starbucks were gone. I did use one flowers coupon but most of my money ended up expiring because they "rewards" are basically just coupons for money off with a larger purchase. Definitely not worth my time.
