WARNING: Some SSI survey "invitations" read something like this:

You have an opportunity waiting!

Topic:Entertainment
Incentive:in e-Rewards® Currency
Length:5 minutes
You'll notice there is no incentive amount mentioned, nor is there a "participation" amount offered for trying but being disqualified. It does not appear this is an oversight!

The survey is called a "PopRewards" survey and (after the qualification questions) asks a lot of questions about your recent TV viewing, including what went on in the programs and the commercials (takes much more than 5 minutes, by the way). After the survey is over and you're congratulated for successfully completing the survey, there is nothing added to your total -- even days later. There is apparently no reward for taking the survey! (Well, they didn't promise any, did they?)

I have reached the point where I'm simply not willing to answer qualifying surveys as a condition precedent to getting to surveys that award you credit in return for your responses. It use to be done on an occasional basis, and now it's totally in your face, almost all the time, repetitively. If that's the end of my participation in e-rewards, so be it; it has gotten to such an extreme balance, that it just no longer makes sense (to me).

I get the Pop Rewards surveys to credit for cash or miles on Swagbucks and some of the single redemption sites like Opinion Rewards Club. But the Pop Rewards site is really flaky and seems to only get as far as selecting the tv shows maybe half the time.

E-rewards UK unavailable surveys

Hello everyone

Last year for a few weeks I received daily many surveys, but when i clicked on the link , ALL of them would come up as 0% and a message :

Thank you for your interest in taking a survey!

Unfortunately there are no available surveys for you right now. Please try again later.
then it got back to normal, i could get to the surveys...

recently it started again to have the NO AVAILABLE survey


Does anyone know why this happens? cookies? using the same phone to do the surveys

I am sure this has happened to others.

any feedback would be great .

Cheers

I'm not based in the UK, but frequently I can find a few more surveys by going back and clicking on previous e-mails. Doesn't make any sense, but it works.

ETA: and I may have found a decent alternative to e-Rewards- learned about it in a FaceBook feed. (Yes, Big Brother is alive and well.) So far I've completed enough Surveys to get 1,000 points; they're similar to the e-Rewards ones, many from the same survey companies. There's a delay of couple of weeks while they actually check your responses to see if your answers are credible and until then you can't see the rewards. I'm at that stage, having accumulated over 1,000 points with about 1/3 approved. I was waiting to see what the rewards actually are, and then found this review- basically a variety of $10 gift cards or $10 to PayPal for 1,000 in points, so well worth it. No invitation needed.

Fake E-Rewards Surveys Lead to "Answer a [LOT OF] questions to find a new survey"

E-Rewards' emails claim to take survey, some range at a disgusting level of $0.25 for 5 Minutes, some better (should be $30.00 for 10 minutes like they were), but when ever we get these emails lately, once you go in, we're getting this BS: Answer a few questions to find a new survey. Well, there are not a few questions, there are A LOT and it's all BS. We had to fill out profiles when we started, so what is this garbage?

These Q's are really NOYBW: None of your Bee's Wax. Just see our profile from years ago, then get back to us. Really fake advertising from E-Rewards, annoying....no wait, it's AI, yeah that's it. Robo-hell.

Just answer none of the above for every single one. I haven't seen any reduction in offered surveys from doing that.

Yes, I had survey mail that only goes to a blank page.
To be honest I don't expect much from e-rewards anymore

Not a bad thought- if they can't get any new info they may stop doing it!

I waited to post this because I had ALMOST $100 in my account but now that I got it to $101 and redeemed $100 for AA miles I won't worry about putting a jinx on myself by posting this.

I'm racking up enough e-Reward points to get $100/month so. I alternate between Hilton points and AA miles, both of which I can use. I also hit up Starbucks for a $50 gift card ($145 in e-Rewards funny money) every 6 months if I can. Like everyone else here, I get my fair share of surveys that steal a lot of opinions/information before kicking you out. I've also cheerfully and honestly disqualified myself from surveys looking for people with specific health conditions, who are planning on buying a current model year car, who are passionate about beauty products, who smoke, etc.

I'm not sure why I'm not seeing the fall-off in decent surveys that many are. Maybe it's because I'm retired, so I have the time to complete a decent number of surveys. As noted earlier, I also go back and click on old e-mails and get directed to surveys even when the "Find a Survey" button is greyed out. Finally, I typically qualify for two types that seem to be very popular: financial services and social/political issues (for the latter they ask questions which indicate extent of community involvement and about whether you voted recently).

So, it's still not a bad deal for some of us "special snowflakes". I'll enjoy it while I can.

Yes ... reported it nearly a month ago ... had 3 holding emails saying they had referred it to their IT department but not resolved so far.
