Rewardia Review and My Thoughts

Some of the links may be from a sponsor. Advertising Disclosure

Rewardia rewards you to answer surveys, play games, watch videos, answer trivia questions and so much more.  For every activity you perform, you can earn points, in which you can cash out for a variety of rewards.  This is no different than the many survey/GPT-like sites I have mentioned in the past.

Whether you’re looking for another way to make money online or maybe you have come across Rewardia in your money-making hunt, I wanted to review the website, letting you know exactly how it works as well as what you can make.

As in all of my reviews, I only recommend what I feel is worth your time.  I don’t push products nor do I mislead you so that I line my pockets.  I don’t work that way.

So, with that out of the way, let’s dive and see what Rewardia is all about.

Signing Up for Rewardia

To sign up for Rewardia, the company, like most survey sites, will ask that you create a profile.  This will include your name and email at first.

Immediately after the first prompt, the company will then ask you to review a “5-step guide” to learn more about how you get free gift cards and cash.   Throughout this guide, it’s a very simple tutorial that just teaches you the basics.  In short, it will tell you how you can earn points.  After, you will then be asked to fill out a 22 pre-screening survey, in which you will be rewarded with 220 points.

These screeners are very common amongst these survey sites and are intended to learn more about you demographic wise.  With this information, you are then able to receive targeted surveys so that you’re not wasting your time.  After all, would you want to take a survey on cats when you don’t own one?

This screener will take about 10 minutes or so and you get 220 points for completing it.

To qualify as a user, you must reside in the USA, Australia or New Zealand.

How Rewardia Works

After you sign up and complete the screener, the company will then be able to send you surveys based on your profile.  Most of your money will be made with these survey opportunities.  It will look something like this on your desktop…

The website categorizes the surveys into colors as well as a “star” system.  The more stars it has, the better your chances at getting approved are.  In the survey world, the biggest disappointment is that you often don’t qualify for every survey you click on.  This can be frustrating as it can be a giant waste of time.  So, if you see more stars, you have a better chance at qualifying, which can help cut down disqualifications drastically.

As for the colors, this is just a way to categorize the many third parties they work with.  What are known as offer walls, many of these companies “partner” with other survey providers.  They supply a company like Rewardia the surveys and they take a cut of what you make.  This is very common.

Lastly, aside from the star and color system, you will also see how long the survey should take as well as the points you can earn.

How Much Are Rewardia Points Worth?

For every 2,000 points you earn, you can redeem $1 in rewards.  That means that every point is essentially worth $0.0005.  Yes, it’s a confusing system, and I hate when a company does this.  Most companies today will either use a flat points system where one point equals a penny or it’s a currency system.   This isn’t the case here.

Other Ways to Earn (Games and Polls)

Aside from the surveys, you can also earn through the “Play and Earn” section.  This is essentially a massive list of ways to earn, which will look something like this…

Throughout this list, it’s fairly explanatory.  Just click on a job of interest and follow the directions to complete what’s noted.

The polls usually pay about four points, whereas the games pay you in points the longer you play.  It’s not much, and it’s the reason I wouldn’t focus much on this list as the time and reward ratio isn’t worth your time, to be honest.


When it comes time to cash out, you can do so either via a bank transfer or through a variety of gift cards.

If you choose the bank transfer option, you will need at least $50 in rewards to do so, however, if you choose the gift cards option, you will only need $5 to start redeeming.  PayPal is not an option.

The company didn’t have many options to choose from, however, they had some of the more popular options such as Amazon and Best Buy.   This was the list when I was writing this review:

  • Amazon
  • Domino’s
  • Krispy Kreme
  • Macy’s
  • Starbucks
  • Banana Republic
  • Dunkin Donuts
  • Gap
  • Google Play
  • Nike
  • Nordstrom
  • Petco
  • Staples
  • Best Buy
  • Foot Locker
  • Home Depot
  • Crate & Barrel
  • Delta

These are subject to change, but you can find all of your options right on the rewards page.

When you do cash out, cards are usually emailed within 24 to 48 hours.

The Pros:

  • lots of surveys
  • a nice star system that lets you know which surveys are worth your time
  • they seem to pay promptly
  • small joining bonus

The Cons:

  • annoying points system
  • no PayPal
  • games are a waste of your time
  • limited countries can join
  • lots of redirects/rejects with surveys

Final Thoughts

6/10Rewardia seems like any other survey site.  They have a lot of surveys, most of which come from third-party providers.  While there’s nothing wrong with that, you won’t find much in terms of uniqueness here.

Is Rewardia legit?  Yes, they do pay, and I have proof, however, some say they didn’t get paid.  It’s because they didn’t verify their account or they attempted to cheat the system.  As long as you’re playing by the rules, you should be okay.

In the end, if you sign up, you may make some money, maybe a few dollars a day.  What I recommend is that you focus solely on the surveys and skip the games portion, as you won’t make much money here.  If you focus on those higher star rated surveys, you can do okay.

I wouldn’t say it’s the best nor would I say it’s the worse.  Give it a shot, and if you find no luck, you can always close your account.

That’s going to do it for now.

  • I like doing the surveys on Rewardia as well as play different games. One thing I’m pretty sure of is that people cheat big time. I just finished playing Word Search where you have to come up with ten words covering such categories as countries or animals. The top player got ten words in 13 seconds. Thirteen seconds????? Come on. That’s 1.3 seconds per word. I’d like to see anyone mark A F G H A N I S T A N or H I P P O P O T A M U S in 1.3 seconds. I don’t know how these people cheat but the simple fact is They Are Cheating.

    Anybody dare to comment. If you’re not cheating show me how you get a word like the ones I’ve shown above in 1.3 seconds.
