Complaint Review: E-Rewards
E-RewardsInternet United States of America
E-Rewards e-Rewards Opinion Panel Take you through surveys then indicate "we have enough responses" and give $ .50 and when you redeem earned money most prizes require you to spend money Internet
e-Rewards is a marketing company that sends out surveys. Lately they have you answer anywhere from 6-15 questions including zip code, age range, occupation... I just finished answering whether I would buy books based on photos and descriptions of book covers when I was told "Thank you but we have enough responses already. You will receive partial credit as promised..." Partial credit is usually $ .50 sometimes $ .25. So I spent at least 10 minutes for $ .50!!!
Beware this happens often! not only do they have you answer the questions they really want and then tell you they have the required responses but then they continue to ask additional questions unrelated to that survey before you get the measly partial credit!
The surveys on rare occasion that do go all the way through, are about $3.00 - Maybe $5.00, and the only good reward is the Barnes and Noble credit and it's limited to one every 12-months. The rest are rewards like using your earned money for hours of your time to get $50 off $125 at an online bag shopping site or $10 off $50 at a department store or $25 off of a flower delivery site... so it costs you more money to spend money earned.
I have asked why I can't get gift cards or cash my money in... It's basically a scam where they get people to take their surveys for pennies and get their sponsors to give coupons and we pay for the coupons. It's unethical and they claim to be a BBB business but companies should not be using their service. They need to restructure. Don't waste your time!!!!!!
