What Is PrizeRebel?
PrizeRebel is a GPT (get-paid-to) business that’s dedicated to providing the opportunity to complete surveys for money or other rewards such as gift cards. This may sound the same as any survey site, but as soon as you land on PrizeRebel’s homepage, you can immediately tell it’s far more legitimate than many of its competitors.
It has a simple and yet stylish landing page that provides welcome reassurance that PrizeRebel isn’t a scam.
When it comes to survey and reward websites, first impressions really count. After all, if the company can’t pay to have a professional-looking site, or can’t be bothered to create one, then how can they afford to create the rewards that they promise to eager consumers who are waiting to sign up and take surveys?
Whether or not it lived up to this initial promise is something that I will reveal as we head deeper into this PrizeRebel review. Keep reading to find out more!
There was something else that grabbed my attention on the home page, and once again it was for all the right reasons. Down at the bottom, it says that: “PrizeRebel.com is the #1 place for online paid surveys… Since 2007, we have been the premier online market research surveys website.”
It then goes on to claim that it has paid out $9 million in cash since 2007, and then reveals how much has been paid out in cash within the last 24 hour period. That’s a feature I’ve not seen on any other rewards site. They really should look at following PrizeRebel’s lead, because do you know what it does? It breeds confidence, it makes a person want to sign up and get stuck into a survey or two right away.
Oh, by the way, do you want to know what that counter is showing at this very minute? It’s $1129. That almost makes me want to stop typing this review and head into another survey right away, but don’t worry – I’ve got time to let you know all about PrizeRebel.
There’s another big number that jumps out of the home page: 6.4 million. That’s the number of customers that use PrizeRebel worldwide, or 6,427,981 if you want me to be precise.
That many customers can’t be wrong, can they?
It can be boiled down to two essential elements:
Sign up to the site, complete the surveys that grab their interest, and the more surveys they complete the more cash they earn.
On the opposite side of the coin, also benefit, because they get to hear what consumers really think about their products and services, or even more pertinently about their potential products and services. This means that in the future that can create products that really meet consumer products.
That means that when you fill in surveys you can not only earn a little extra spending money for yourself, you can also help to shape the really useful products of tomorrow. What’s not to like?
How PrizeRebel Works
We’ve all dreamed of being able to earn a better income from the comfort and familiarity of our own home, rather than being stuck in a humid office, or working in some humdrum job that stops us doing what we really want to do. For many people working from home is a dream, and survey sites can seem to be one of the keys to making that dream come true.
That’s where I will always advise people to temper their expectations a little. Yes, survey and reward platforms like PrizeRebel, Toluna, and others, can bring in some extra income, and extra income is always welcome isn’t it?
Don’t expect to become a millionaire, however, or earn enough to buy that new pair of Jimmy Choos that you’ve been looking out. But what about that nine million dollars, I hear you shout at the screen? That’s across all customers and all time, so let’s have a closer look at how PrizeRebel works and what it offers.
As you might expect after seeing the home page, the site prides itself on simplicity, and it, therefore, makes the mechanics of earning money as simple as possible. Let’s explore this a little bit more.
The home page boasts “It’s As Easy As 1,2,3”, but does it really live up to that promise?
How Easy It Is to Start PrizeRebel?
Here is there three steps to survey heaven:
• Sign Up: you can sign up via Facebook. That’s a neat touch, as let’s face it we all have a Facebook account. If you’re worried about the company trawling your Facebook account to get more information about you, well, that’s the whole point of survey completion anyway, from the point of view of the business.
• Complete Cash Surveys: there really are lots of surveys to choose from, and it’s always nice to see variety on a site like this. These surveys are provided by a host of different marketing companies, including RadiumOne, AdGate, Ascend, and OfferToro, but as we’ll see there are other ways to earn rewards too.
• Get Paid. Simple: unlike some other sites, you don’t automatically earn cents and then dollars for each survey completed, instead you earn points which can then be swapped for gift cards, cash, and more.
So far, so good, and once you do sign in (by the way, there is an option to register a site-specific account if you don’t want to hand over your Facebook details) you are taken to a very attractive, if a little less simple site. You’ll also be hit in the face by a plethora of deals and special offers for new account offers.
Take your time and find the deal, or deals, that is right for you. After all, you’re only going to get the opportunity to take advantage of these offers once. These deals can vary from energy-saving offers, to debt relief advice, so there may be something that suits you, there may not.
How Easy Is It To Use PrizeRebel?
Using a survey site like PrizeRebel or SendEarnings should be easy right? Well let me tell you, it’s not always as easy as that.
With this website, I have to say that it was straightforward to use, with one exception – and I’ll come to that in a moment.
What was missing, however, was a FAQ page. That’s a big omission as far as I’m concerned, as it’s good to get quick and easy to find answers to questions like: How do I earn points? How many surveys can I complete in a day? What happens if I refer someone?
The answer to that last question, by the way, is that you earn extra points. In short you get points for absolutely nothing other than introducing a friend to the PrizeRebel fun.
My advice here is refer, refer, refer, and you can have a referral link on your own website or Facebook page. Why not?
With the FAQ section missing, it’s essential that the website is intuitive and easy to use, and thankfully this is where PrizeRebel.com scores highly. It’s so easy to use with headings divided into the following sub categories:
‘Earn’ – ‘Offer Walls’
‘Rewards’ – ‘Rewards’
– ‘Rewards History’
– ‘Submit Testimonial’
‘Win’ – ‘Raffles’
– ‘Lucky Numbers’
– ‘My Winnings’
‘Invite’ – ‘Refer a Friend’
– ‘Referral Stats’
It really is as simple as that. The offer walls will be the first port of call for most users, and it’s here where you can earn the points that equal prizes. It’s not all surveys, you can also earn points by referrals (as I said earlier of course), watching videos, and registering for other websites and offers. The offer is very simple as well: collect one hundred points and earn one dollar. What could be easier to understand than that?
My Experience with PrizeRebel
So, I’ve been using PrizeRebel for a while now, which is in itself a bit of a recommendation I guess. Here are the things that really struck me from a personal view, along with some handy hints and tips that users of the site may find useful:
It’s Reassuringly Attractive
Looks aren’t everything of course, but we all know that they count for a lot in this crazy world of ours. This website is very well laid out, bright, colorful and yet easy to navigate. That reassures me that it’s a legit professional service, and let’s people know that it’s certainly not a scam survey site.
There’s a Lot of Choice
I’ve been on lots of competitor websites that severely limit the number of surveys available. That stops you earning rewards, and quickly leads to boredom. That didn’t happen with PrizeRebel. The surveys available are dependent upon the information you provide, but there always seemed to be a lot to go at, and then of course you can take a break and watch a video or two.
You Really Can Earn Money
You won’t get rich from PrizeRebel but I was pleasantly surprised at how quickly I earned a dollar or two. One reason for this is that you get daily challenges that give you a chance to earn some extra points.
Getting Your Hands on the Cash is Easy
Once you’ve earned enough points, converting them into something useful is simplicity itself. You can choose to have gift cards (for everything from Amazon to Burger King) or if you have earned at least 500 points you can have the money (in that case five dollars) transferred directly into your PayPal account. It’s safe and secure.
So, in short lines, some of the most prominent pros of this panel would be:- It is available in all countries.- It has over 500 gift cards from various brands in its offer.- Minimum cashout starts at $5 USD and you can use PayPal as a cashout option too.- All rewards are sent in less than 24 hours, and priority of sending them is decided depending on the user level.- Their Referral program lets you earn up to 30% of what your referrals earn. This can result in hundreds to thousands of dollars of extra income every month if you have a large network of friends or followers that you could refer this panel to.
I’ve given you lots of pros there, but there was one downside that I found from using the PrizeRebel website. There seems to be little or no correlation between the difficulty of a task, and the number of points and therefore cash you earn. I like to think that the more effort you put into completing a survey, or the longer it takes to watch a video, then the greater the number of points you’re going to earn. PrizeRebel, unfortunately, just isn’t like that. As a great philosopher once said, it’s like a box of chocolates – you never know what you’re going to get.

PrizeRebel Review Conclusion
You may have guessed that I was impressed by PrizeRebel, and it’s a survey site that I can hand on heart recommend without hesitation. As with all these sites you get out what you put in, so earning cash does take time, but if you’re just sat around at home why not kill a little time, fill in a survey or two, and get closer to your goal?
Here’s another tip: have a dedicated email address solely for use with PrizeRebel. I’m not saying they spam you, but as you’d expect you’re going to receive emails from targeted suppliers. I didn’t find it overbearing though, and I’ve had more emails after signing up to some similar sights.
I have to admit as well that it can be frustrating to fill in a survey only to find at the end that you’re not eligible for it. That’s a problem that’s shared with every survey website I’ve ever joined, however (and of course there have been lots of those), and again I didn’t find that PrizeRebel.com was particularly bad from this aspect.
It seems to me that PrizeRebel are proud of their site, and proud that they offer a legit way for consumers to earn themselves a little extra cash, which is why they have a prominent testimonials page. Look on Google and you won’t find genuine complaints about this company, so go on, be a rebel and complete your surveys in confidence.
