Welcome to my Rewarding Ways review.
Rewarding Ways is yet another get-paid-to (GPT) website that enables you to make money by watching and clicking on ads, completing offers and taking surveys.
They are owned by a UK company called 99 Venture LTD, who also own two other GPT websites called SuperPay.Me and Offernation.
Rewarding Ways was created in 2011 and has been operating ever since. They have 370,010 members and have paid out $1,210,210.45 according to their website.
They also have a page that is dedicated to showing prospective members, payment proof of all the current members who are receiving money from joining Rewarding Ways.
But are they a legit way to make money or a scam?
In this review, I outline the good, the bad and the ugly parts of this company, and leave it up to you to decide.
But first, if you’re looking for a legit way to make money online, then you can also check out the step-by-step training that helps me earn over $10,000+ per month working from home.
What is Rewarding Ways?
As mentioned earlier Rewarding Ways is a get-paid-to (GPT) website that allows you to earn money by completing simple tasks like filling out surveys and completing offers.
Who uses Rewarding Ways?
This product is aimed at people who want to earn some extra income online by completing various tasks. A number of these tasks are designed to provide consumer insight to large companies who create products for that demographic.
There’s virtually no prior experience, skill or expertise needed to join other than being over the age of 18.
Unlike some GPT websites, Rewarding Ways is available for people to participate world wide, however, the number of offers and surveys you will be able to complete is entirely dependent on which country you reside in.
How To Join Rewarding Ways
It is very easy to sign up with Rewarding Ways and requires the usual first name, last name and email info, but they also ask for your mailing address to verify your location.
I assume they use this information to both verify your country of residence as well as being able to match offers and surveys that best match your demographic.
I know the first thing that comes to mind is to say you live in the US (even if you don’t), since most of the offers and surveys come from the US, but, they do have ways of checking this, even if you use a VPN.
VPN’s are not permitted and it’s of interest to note that I have seen examples of them banning accounts based on IP mismatches.
Anyway, once you get through the sign up process, and your account is verified, you can start earning money by completing offers.
Also once your account is verified you will receive a $0.20 bonus.
Granted it’s not a helluva lot, but the minimum payout is $1, so it’s kinda alright.
How Does Rewarding Ways Work?
There are a number of ways to make money with Rewarding Ways including, completing surveys and offers, clicking on ads, watching videos, entering cash contests, inputting promo codes and by referring others to Rewarding Ways.
Each of these tasks earn you a certain number of points which can then be exchanged for cash once you reach the minimum threshold pay out of $1.
For every point you accumulate, you will earn the equivalence in cash. For example, if you earn 50 points for completing a task, you will earn $0.50.
So the idea is to earn as many points as you can over time and then cash out when you feel you have enough.
Make no mistake though, it can take a little while for you to earn enough points to make the whole transaction worthwhile.
So one of the best approaches is to find tasks that you can complete fairly quickly without too much hassle, and also to find tasks that have a higher pay out like surveys.
You won’t qualify for all surveys and this can be a painful process, but once you do, you can earn anywhere from 50 to 200 points per survey.
How Do You Make Money With Rewarding Ways?
The number of points you get from completing surveys vary, but in general are the highest paying, and are usually in line with how long a survey will take to complete.
For example, some surveys will take you 5 minutes to complete and you may be rewarded with 50 points for completing it, whereas other surveys may take you 30 minutes to complete and you may be rewarded with 200 points.
You are usually given details on how long a survey will take and how many points you will earn up front before you decide to take part.
This is a real time waster in my opinion, because most ads you have to click on first require you to watch something for at least 60 seconds until the ad appears and then you will get credited with the points. Each ad you click on requires you to complete a captcha code before any points are credited into your account. And the points are usually very small.
Completing offers is probably my least favorite way to make money with GPT websites, because it a way to get yourself in the most amount of trouble. Most offers just want your email address so that they can continue to market products or services to you ad infinitum, which is a pain in the butt.
However, the more dangerous offers are free trial offers that require your credit card information. Most free trial offers say that they need the information for verification reasons or as a way to bill you for the product, if you like it, after the trial ends. They do state that if you don’t want the product then you can cancel and your credit card won’t be charged.
Sounds good on paper, however, the reality is, a lot of people find it difficult to contact the company to cancel the free trial, and what tends to happen is the company will charge you for the product after the trial ends, and then continue to bill you month after month, for as long as it takes for you to get in contact with the company to cancel or at worse, have to ring your bank to cancel your credit card.
If you refer someone to Rewarding Ways and they decide to join as a result then you will earn 25% of their earnings for doing nothing else other than sending them to the company. this in my opinion is probably a better way for you to spend your time and effort.
You can also earn points by watching various videos. You will have to watch the videos for a certain length of time and as a result you will be paid for the time you spent watching them. You can’t watch several videos at one time and you must have the video as the active window on your device as opposed to letting it run in the background.
You can earn some extra points from time to time by entering in promo codes that you get from monitoring their Facebook and Twitter accounts. They don’t offer them regularly, but, you can pick up $0.20 sometimes by entering a promo code.
The top twenty earners of Rewarding Ways are eligible to receive a cash contest prize awarded every 3 months.
Rewarding Ways Payout Methods
Once you have reached the minimum threshold, you will be able to redeem your points for cash or for an Amazon Gift Card.
There are a number of different payment methods available with the website including Paypal, Skrill, Payza and Bitcoin.
To get payment via Paypal you will need to have at least 100 points or $1 in your account.
To get paid via Payza you will need a minimum of at least $10 in your account and Bitcoin is $15 in your account.
Each payment method incurs it’s own processing fee. The company charge a 2% fee for both Paypal, and Skrill. Payza is currently 3%, and Bitcoin is 10%.
Rewarding Ways Payment Proof
Rewarding Ways has a payment proof page on their website that supposedly shows you “real-time” payments being made out to users. I say supposedly because I couldn’t verify if this is a made up page or real payments.
What I Like about Rewarding Ways
- I like the fact that the minimum threshold amount is $1, which means that you can redeem your points for cash much sooner than other GPT websites.
- I like that the point system is fairly easy to understand, having a one to one ratio, (i.e) 1 point is equivalent to $0.01. Other GPT websites point systems have point systems that are fractions of a cent which means you have to complete more activities to earn the same amount in Rewarding Ways.
- I like that they have several different methods for getting paid.
What I Don’t Like about Rewarding Ways
- Whilst, I like that Rewarding Ways have several methods for paying you out, I don’t like the fact that you have to pay for the processing fess of the various payment methods. Having said that, this is a problem with all GPT websites, not just Rewarding Ways.
- I don’t like the fact that you don’t get paid much for the tasks you complete.
- You can spend a lot of time trying to qualify for surveys and not actually qualify to take part in the survey where you make the money.
- The free trial offers have pitfalls that you need to be aware of when you take them. Some companies that offer the free trials make it difficult for subscribers to cancel a trial offer and will bill you for a product every month until you 1) are able to contact them to cancel future billings or 2) stop your credit card with your bank.
Do I Recommend Rewarding Ways?
As far as GPT websites go, Rewarding Ways seems to be one of the better systems that I have seen online. Like SuperPay.Me and Offernation, they all offer a similar functionality and payment methods, but packaged or presented slightly differently.
Do I recommend them as a good way to make money? As far as GPT websites are concerned, they are better than others out there, so in the instance – yes, but, as a way to make money compared to other money making opportunities – I would say no.
You are literally working for pennies in the dollar with GPT websites, and in most cases would be earning between $0.50 to $3 per hour. Now, that’s a pretty sad hourly rate if you ask me … that doesn’t even come close to minimum wage in most countries.
Whereas, you could potentially be earning hundreds if not thousands of dollars, doing something that requires a similar amount of time and effort, given the right guidance and training.
To get the right training and guidance, I recommend you read this review.
As always, if you have any experience with Rewarding Ways, good or bad, I would love to hear you. Please leave a message in the comment section below.
