My comment is for companies that use e-rewards.
I have spent untold time going through the first 6 to 7 questions only to be told that I don't qualify to finish the survey. I have not qualified for a survey in the last 2 months.If they are so narrow in who the accept it means that the survey is skewed to start with.
The companies that use these surveys are either to dumb to know when they are getting lied too, or they are only interested is a result that supports what they want to hear. In that case the companies are guilty of lieing and not worthy of my business in the first place.

I for one have always been paid on time, and some magazines we actually read so hey it a free 12 month subscription for a few minutes work. I have even changed the frequency of alerts for surveys. Just in the first month alone, I had over $50 credit to use. Those saying its a scam and saying they were loosing credit because they were not "preferred members", to be honest i have no idea what your talking about. To date I am extremely happy with them and hey why complain about something thats free? If you have the time to do the surveys you obviously have the time to waste sat there in the first place right?

They're totally legit, I have gotten gamestop gift cards from them twice before. Sure it's a little time consuming waiting to acrew enough money to get what you want, but it only takes a few minutes out of your week, and hey lets face it, it's free stuff after all, what could you possibly have to complain about?

Take time to fill out survey and it works, gift cards are sent quickly

I cannot say when I signed up for the program via an Express invite, but I can say it has taken a while to accumulate the $95 [e-rewards cash] to get a $50 Express GC. There have been plenty of surveys that I did not qualify for. There was only one time I could remember nearly completing a survey before getting booted as mentioned in the comments below. There are no other rewards I would want if Express should drop out. Overall I can say I am highly satisfied with the program. I didn't go into this thinking I was going to make loads of cash everyday, thus bringing in steady amounts of GCs. It was totally worth it to take some surveys from time to time and accumulate the credits. When I turned in my rewards, the site said it could take up to several weeks for my GC to arrive but it came in just one. Take it for what it is.

I've been a member for several years. But only because I can redeem for Blockbuster rentals. Their other "prizes" are pretty pathetic unless you travel alot. Sometimes they have good magazines, but usually they are pretty pathetic too. I'll continue as long as Blockbuster is in business, then I'll probably quit.

They will have you complete surveys then tell you at the end that you do not qualify or something like that. Then you get "partial credit".

It just amazes me that people get so excited when they hear "something for nearly nothing"! They answer questions for a period of time only to be turned down; they complain about the "free" rewards; complain even more about the lack of customer service.....What do they expect? Nowhere do you get something for nothing...if you did everyone would be doing it. If you have that much time on your hands that you have nothing better to do than complain constantly, then find another hobby OR join a website that "guarantees" rewards, points or discounts in return for answering ALL those "personal" questions. Some people just have too much free time on their hands and simply expect that they alone should be rewarded for their time and effort!!

I've been with e rewards for over a year now. All I have to say is that they are a great survey company. The only drawback, as most of you pointed out, is that there are not a lot of surveys. So far I have redeemed 4 gamestop gift cards in a little bit over a year. In my opinion that is all I care about.
10:45pm on July 4th, 2010
I've been doing them for about three years and the rewards are very good. In fact, I sometimes have to let friends pick things because I have too much credit built up. Yes, sometimes you don't qualify for a given survey, but that's because of the special requirements of the company that hires E-Rewards. I probably average about $300 a year.

I was recommended to this promotional web site in order to get more "priority club" points. It has taken me months and endless unqualified surveys to still be short of earning a lousy 2000 extra reward points. One night in a hotel affords me over 3000 points. I was lured in with easy accumulation of fraudulent dollars to exchange for valuable points. The surveys offer significant reward dollars if you complete the survey and only pennies if you don't. Surveys after survey have disqualified me only after I have completed a significant percentage of the survey. After I have given valuable information about my family and myself. I have disclosed our buying patterns, health and hygiene practices and physical and medical conditions. Do yourselves a favor steer clear of this company and all that they stand for. I am now on a mission to complete my own surveys and that is in every review site I can find. I suggest you spend time with people you love. Hug your family and spend your time wisely not with a company that is looking to exploit good and honest people. Do yourself a favor and go twiddle your thumbs it will be more worthwhile then spending one second of your time on this companies web site.

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?
12:43am on June 19th, 2010
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.
