What Is Survey Rewardz?

Survey Rewardz found at is a market research company that promises to give people a chance to make money from home taking surveys. Survey Rewardz appears to be started on August 2014. They are owned by points2shop, LLC that also offers other ways to work from home aside from taking surveys.

Survey Rewardz Complaints

Well, this is the part you've probably been waiting for. Not surprising Survey Rewardz does have its own issues. We'll lay them out here and then it's up to you to decide if they are deal breakers or not.

Limited Survey Opportunities

The biggest issue with all surveys, including the ones from survey rewardz is that they're based on supply and demand. If you don't fit the demographics that companies are looking for then you're highly unlikely to get a lot of survey opportunities.

Fortunately, there are other ways of earning money online. and are examples, and you can also check out My Top Work At Home Recommendation, just to broaden your horizon.

No Referral Program

Most market research companies have a referral program where you can earn just by referring their services to friends and family. has this, and so do does The only way you can earn with Survey Rewardz is if a survey that fits your profile turns up.

Negative BBB Rating

At the time of this review, their parent company Points2shop has the lowest possible BBB rating, an F. Although I don't believe a BBB rating is the only thing you should rely on, this rating may imply lousy, inconsistent or unpredictable business practices for some of you.

Don't Quit Your Day Job

Like all survey opportunities they're based on factors you can't control. If they're looking for a white woman that has no babies, as a black man with 2 kids, I won't qualify for a survey. So you can't really depend on these opportunities for consistent income. It's all about a given demographic at a certain point in time. Unfortunately, your bills don't care about this and need to be paid. So relying on surveys won't achieve this.

Is Survey Rewardz A Scam or Legitimate?

Based on our research and also looking at what users have to say about Survey Rewardz, it's not a scam. But it's also not a reliable source of income. Everything else about it sounds good from the different forms of payment and ease of access, but it's downhill from then onwards.

So as long as you're going into this knowing it's not consistent income, it may be worth a shot. However, if you are looking for consistent ways to make money you can control, you are probably better off with sites like and What I came to realize is that when it comes to working from home, multiple streams of income are always better. So don't put all your eggs in one basket. With that in mind you should also check out My Top Work From Home Recommendation.

  1. I am facing the problem of “temporarily disabled” message when i tried to access the site. It happen after i try to cash out my first payment, anyone has the same problem?

  2. I have been with SurveyRewardz since 2017 and have been struggling with their horrible customer service the entire time. After cashing out multiple times, I will not be attempting again. I have gone back and forth with their customer service for days and they refuse to respond to questions. There are hundreds of complaints like mine that says almost the exact same thing. I would not recommend this website to anybody who needs money. SurveyJunkie (bad customer service but good website overall), OneOpinion, and OpinionOutpost are FAR more reliable and all have customer service agents that respond in a polite, professional, and adequate manner. There is absolutely no reason to use SurveyRewardz and they truly earned their BBB warning label.

  3. SurveyRewardz has been great to me. I’ve been able to cash in around $50 or more a week. Always buying groceries.

  4. I have been reading the comments, most are more than a few years old. The company SurveyRewardzs, has recently emailed me, before I respond to them I’d like to know if you have any recent feedback?
    Also, Cant find anything on a “Sample That” Please respond asap Scottie Henson

  5. I think Survey Rewardz is a great website to make some small side money. it isn’t good to buy grocery’s or pay bills, but it’s good for small online things, like a $5 steam game, or a csgo skin. If you’re looking for big profit, this site isn’t for you, but it’s great for people like me who get enough for TF2 keys!

  6. as opposed to most of the comments. I am having nothing but trouble with survey Rewardz. I cashed out once, but the second time I have had trouble getting answers from them. I asked for information on the support section. I was answered that they had my ticket, then I was transfered to another person. Its been over a month since i have heard nothing from them. They sat first 2 to 5 days, then 5 to 8 days. now it is at 9 days. and nothing, should I try and get a new ticket ? they say new tickets go to bottom of list. I do not know what to do. I just would like my money that I have earned.

    • Hi I’ve got the same problem I’m owed a £30 Amazon voucher never received it says approved but now I’ve had my account blocked ingnored my tickets then block me on Facebook & now Blocked my IP address I will not give up getting what I’m owed

    • I’m sorry to hear that Sandi! That’s why I’m a big proponent of multiple streams of income. This way you always have money coming in from various companies just in case this type of nonsense happens.

  7. Thanks for the info Eddy. I have been looking for a quality survey program to get involved with and I have yet to find one. It seems like they’re all hit or miss and that the payouts are small. Keep preaching the truth and looking out for the newbie internet marketer!

    • You’re welcome Marc. Yeah, I wouldn’t spend too much time looking at surveys for consistent income.

  8. Eddy, this is a very complete and thorough review of a segment which I have some experience with. I can tell you, I never made much money. It seems like a lot of time for so little reward. I agree that if a person is going to sit in front of a computer, it should be worth the time invested. In my opinion, I would stay away from these. Of course, if you’re just looking for a few bucks, go for it.

  9. Hi, Eddy!

    I agree with your assessment about whether or not Survey Rewardz is a legit company as opposed to a scam.

    As this company does not require a person to pay money for joining this opportunity, (and some survey sites DO ask for a join fee which I find absurd) it is not a scam. But. . .

    You run into the same old, same old regarding making a lot of money in an opportunity involving survey taking. At this site you run into the chance of getting disqualified for a survey based on the fact that you would not fit the demographic intended for that survey. As this company had you fill out detailed info about yourself right after joining as a member, why in the world would they send out a particular survey that you had zero chance of qualifying?

    There are several survey sites that I am aware of where a person is never disqualified, with the guarantee that the individual would be rewarded some how – cash or gift certificates.

    Again, there is the issue of not making a lot of money if the individual was allowed to complete it. Time put into a survey would not come even close to minimum pay wages here in the U.S. Is that any way to earn an honest living? I, for one do not think so.

    Third, as you mentioned are the lack of opportunities presented at almost any survey site in existence. You could be provided an opportunity as a member of a site in completing one or two surveys per week, maximum with many of these panels. Getting disqualified with one of them would mean a person earning at most $10 per week with the other survey – and in most cases that is not the norm. No way to feed a family of one person, let alone 4!

    As you mentioned, Eddy, your #1 recommendation in building a profitable online business joining Wealthy Affiliate creates a much better opportunity for a person to create income for him/herself as opposed to the almost zero income trying to attempt the few survey opportunities that you would receive with a company such as Survey Rewardz.


    • Hey Jeff,

      Thanks for the deep insight as usual. And I agree with you about companies sending you survey invitations for surveys you probably won’t qualify for. If you have my demographic information, then only send me surveys I can take. Don’t tease me. LOL So I agree with you.

  10. This is great information to know. Especially with so many people out of work today it could save a lot of time knowing what the return is on your time investment. If they don’t give you surveys you can’t make that much money!

    Thanks for sharing this informative information with us. Keep up the good work!


  11. Hi Eddy,

    Thanks for the review on Survey Rewards. I agree with you that even though it is not a scam but a legitimate business opportunity, it does seem very unreliable.

    The qualification aspect is unappealing to me, because it is possible that a person could spend time entering their information and then not qualify.

    • You’re welcome. Yeah surveys tend to be based on supply and demand. So they’re not always predictable.  

  12. I think that surveys are just a quick way to make money. It’s the first time I hear about Survey Rewardz and to be honest I don’t dig it at all. It’s good having people like you pointing out all the different money making opportunities out there. I don’t really like the fact that I have to provide personal information either.

    • Hey John, Thanks for chiming  in. I don’t think surveys are a quick way to make money. They tend to be long and the pay usually doesn’t add up to the time spent on them.
