Frequently asked questions

  • About e-Rewards

    • How does e-Rewards work?

      e-Rewards is a market research panel specialising in paid online surveys. Our members opt in to take surveys, earn Opinion Points and redeem them for Nectar points, which will be directly deposited into their Nectar account.

      As a member, you'll access surveys from your personal dashboard as well as receive regular survey invites by email.

      For every survey you complete, you'll earn Opinion Points. Once you’ve earned enough, you can exchange them for Nectar points. Surveys normally pay between 75 and 350 Opinion Points.

      To start a survey, simply follow the link within your email or click a survey tile from your dashboard.

      e-Rewards is an invitation-only community. To join, you’ll need to receive an email invite from one of our selected partners.

    • Why do you suspend/freeze accounts?

      As a renowned provider of quality market research, we take the validity of our data very seriously.

      If we have concerns about a member's account, we may need to freeze their access to e-Rewards while we investigate.

      We may suspend/freeze malicious accounts for the following reasons:

      - A member has several accounts or is linked to another suspended/frozen account;
      - A member has been answering surveys too quickly;
      - A member has more than 2 accounts per household;
      - A member supplies information not consistent with their e-Rewards profile;
      - A member's email address is not valid/unable to receive surveys;
      - A member attempts to take more than 1 survey at once.

      We may also take action if we have reason to believe your account is in any way harmful to our status as a provider of market research.

    • My account has been suspended/frozen. What should I do?

      If we have concerns about a member's activity, we may suspend/freeze their access to e-Rewards while we investigate.

      If you think your account has been suspended/frozen by mistake, please contact our Member Support team here.

      Already spoken to our Member Support team? Please be patient. Our fraud team will be investigating why your account has been flagged. We'll contact you with more information as soon as we can.

    • How do I delete my e-Rewards account?

      Simply log in, click the 'Account' drop-down menu, select ‘Your Details’, then go to ‘Delete Account.’ Tell us why you're leaving then click 'Cancel membership'.

      Scroll to the bottom of the widget, click 'Contact us,' then fill in the form with as much information as possible.

  • Surveys

    • I have no surveys available. What can I do?

      The best way to maximise the number of surveys you receive is by completing your profile. The more we know about you, the more surveys we can send your way.

      Still not receiving any survey offers? Feel free to reach out to Member Support who will be happy to assist you further.

      Please note, if you follow a survey link and are not directed to the survey, it means it's either expired or full. We apologise for any inconvenience.

    • How long do the surveys take to complete?

      Our surveys vary in length but normally last between 8–35 minutes. The longer the survey, the more Opinion Points you'll get for completing it. You'll be able to see an estimate of how long it'll take to complete a survey and the points on offer by checking the survey tile.

    • Why didn't I qualify for my survey?

      We work hard to find surveys that are a perfect match for you.

      That's why, before you start each study, we need to confirm that your age, gender and location are a good fit.

      You may also find that your survey has closed before you had the chance to begin. Each study has a target number of respondents, and once this is reached, it will automatically end.

      If you’re not able to complete a survey because it has closed, your answers will not be used or shared for market research.

      To see less surveys you don't qualify for, we recommend completing your profile.

    • Why do you ask for my personal information?

      We need to know your personal information (age, gender, occupation, etc.) for 3 reasons:

      - to have an accurate representation of our members;
      - to make sure you match the activity's intended demographics; and
      - to find the best surveys for your interests.

      We never share any of your personal information with anyone, even the people that create our surveys. That’s why you may have to re-enter information you’ve already given in the past when taking a survey.

      While we appreciate the inconvenience of re-entering this information, this helps ensure our data is accurate.

    • Why is my survey now closed?

      All our surveys have deadlines and a maximum number of respondents.

      While the majority stay open for a few days, if a survey reaches its quota early, it will automatically close.

      To give you the best chance of completing, we try to limit the number of invites for each survey.

    • Why aren't I receiving survey invites?

      Your email provider may be stopping our survey invites. Don't forget to check your spam/junk folders and make sure you aren't blocking e-Rewards.

      If you have anti-virus software installed on your device, you can also check your incoming email settings there.

      We recommend using a personal email address and not one associated with your place of work or education.

      Remember, you can also find all your survey offers on your dashboard by logging in.

      Still having problems receiving survey invites? Please reach out to Member Support who will look into this for you. Click here to open the support widget, scroll to the bottom, click 'Contact us,’ then fill in the form. A member of the team will get back to you as soon as possible.

    • Can I still complete surveys while I'm abroad?

      Unfortunately, you won't be able to complete surveys or redeem rewards outside the country you registered from. If you are visiting another country, please don't try to access your account.

      Moving abroad long-term? Contact our Member Support team here and we'll investigate whether we can set up a new account for you. The link above should open the support widget. Scroll to the bottom of the widget, click 'Contact us,' then fill in the form with as much information as possible.

    • Why do you conduct surveys?

      Businesses, product makers and more want a better understanding of the people using their services. Activities like surveys give them a peek into what you're really thinking.

      It's simple. The better they know their customers, the easier it is to make their products and services better.

    • What does survey quota full mean?

      All our surveys have a deadline and a maximum number of respondents.

      If you see a quota full message, it means your survey has already reached the limit of participants. We apologise for any inconvenience.

    • My survey took longer than the invitation said it would.

      The survey length included in our invites is only an estimate. We base this on the average time it took to complete the study in testing.

      Please also note that before you begin the main survey, you will be asked 'qualifying questions' to see if you're part of the target group that the survey is looking to research. This 'qualification' step is not included in the estimated survey length, which might explain why surveys seem longer than stated. We apologise for any inconvenience.

  • Rewards

    • How do I redeem Nectar points?

      To redeem Nectar points, sign in and head to our 'Rewards' page. Simply pick the reward and follow the steps to redeem. Once you’ve completed redemption, your Nectar points will be deposited directly into your Nectar account (please note this could take up to 28 days).

      Still haven’t received your Nectar points? Please reach out to Member Support who will look into this for you. Click here to open the support widget, scroll to the bottom, click 'Contact us,’ then fill in the form with as much information as possible (including your transaction ID). A member of the team will get back to you as soon as possible.

    • How do survey rewards work?

      You'll earn Opinion Points every time you complete a survey.

      Before selecting a survey, you can view the points offered by checking the survey tile. Once you pick a survey, you'll be asked a few 'qualifying questions' to see if you're part of the target group that it's looking to research. If you you're a match, you'll be taken to the main survey. Simply answer each question in full to progress and complete the study.

      Your Opinion Points will be automatically credited to your e-Rewards account when you complete the survey. Points for certain activities (such as for diary studies and focus groups) may take up to 6 weeks to arrive.

      Remember, if you behave dishonestly, you may not be credited for the survey.

    • I've completed my survey. When will I be credited?

      Once you've finished your survey, your Opinion Points should arrive in your account right away.

      The only exception is for more complex studies like product diaries and focus groups. In these cases, it may take up to 6 weeks for your Opinion Points to arrive.

    • Do my Opinion Points expire?

      No. As you long as you remain an active member of our community, your Opinion Points will always be ready to use.

      However, if you delete your account, you will lose any outstanding points in your balance.

      For more information, please see our Terms and Conditions.

    • I encountered an error when trying to redeem. What should I do?

      We're sorry that you're having difficulties with your reward.

      Here is a common list of issues that may affect your ability to redeem.

      - Only redeem in the country you registered.
      - Don't use shared computers/Wi-Fi.

      You can also try:

      - clearing your browser's cache;
      - installing the latest version of Adobe flash player & JavaScript on your browser;
      - ensuring your computer's time zone matches your current location;
      - enabling cookies and allow third-party cookies. You can find information on this here (Enable cookies on web browser) and here (Enable cookies);
      - using another device.

      If you're still having problems, please try again after 24 hours, or get in touch.

    • How do badge levels work?

      There are five levels: Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum and our highest level, Diamond.

      Each level after Bronze gives members a % bonus on Opinion Points earned each week.

      Silver offers a 2% weekly bonus, 4% for Gold, 6% for Platinum and 8% for Diamond members.

      To illustrate, say that a Diamond member earns 500 Opinion Points for completing surveys during a particular week, they’ll automatically get 40 bonus Opinion Points for that week's survey activity. If, during another week, they earn 700 points for completing surveys, their bonus amount for that week would amount to 56 points.

      Please note that bonus amount calculations are based on previous week’s survey activity (Monday to Sunday).

    • How do I level up?

      Badge levels are based on lifetime points (that is, the number of Opinion Points you've earned from completing surveys since joining e-Rewards).

      You’ll automatically be given a Bronze badge as soon as you join.

      To level up to Silver, you must accumulate 3,000 lifetime points. It takes 6,000 lifetime points to activate Gold. Earning 10,000 lifetime points will grant you a Platinum badge, and finally, to reach Diamond status, you must collect at least 14,000 lifetime points.
