E-rewards is NOT reedeming your earned rewards

For many years E-rewards was a reliable site where one could redeem for gift cards, magazine subscriptions and millage programs (estimating your earnings by a third of its value). A big surprise was when I tried to redeem some of my $200 earned during months and hours of painstaking time completing surveys. They asked for a phone verification (SMS or voice) for them to send a code. After many attempts and error messages, they inactivated my account. After contacting their customer service, they stated that my mobile and landline phones were "digital" and therefor invalid. I had my same home phone number for 18 years and my mobile phone for 5 years!
This leads me to believe that this outfit is scamming people for their hard work. If you value your time, DO NOT WASTE YOURS, YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE ANYTHING FROM E- REWARDS. Only excuses and a per-canned  reply that they will investigate with their "technical" department!  Do not let your rewards accumulate like I did, according to BBB, Facebook and surveypolice, they are doing this scam to all big accounts of over $100.

E-Bates is awesome. You might say they are the master rebaters.

I grew tired of them because they seemed to ask a whole lot of info (more than 5 minutes spent into the surveys) and then after they get all the info (that to me seemed irrelevant to such survey), they they come back and say, eff you ~ we already have enough responses. I only redeemed once to get some SWA points a long long time ago. This is for E-rewards, not Ebates.

That is why they switched to an open plan office.

Interesting. I used to hit E-rewards up all the time when they had good redemption rates with Upromise. After they stopped the upromise program and I got busy at work, I stopped using them for a long while. Recently I have been accumulating credits through their do x numbers of surveys and $10 free credits, etc.

OP reminded me to cash my E-rewards credits I just redeemed $75 reward dollars for $25 Amazon gift card and it took all of 5 minutes for the funds to be credited to my Amazon account. Maybe I was lucky that my account was only worth $97. Now I have to remember to do $3 more in surveys to get the rest of my money.
