On YourOnlineRevenue.com we have experience of more than 100 survey sites and only with a quick look, we were already able to say that this is not better than any other competitor. I will reveal you why and also show a better way to make passive income online.

Bizrate Rewards is a website which offers its members the opportunity to earn points by taking numerous surveys, and these points can be redeemed for gift cards from big brands. Bizrate Rewards basically gives you points as a reward for taking online/mobile surveys according to your selected interests.
Joining Bizrate Rewards is quite simple. You will need to sign up by providing your personal information (name, address, e-mail address, age) and completing the profile survey for you to start earning points. Bizrate Rewards ensures your profile survey is completed because that is the only way to filter and help you get your specific interests or opportunities. In other words, Bizrate Rewards uses the information provided to match you with the right opportunities (=interests). This is unlike most reward platforms where you can skip such information and come back to it later.
Another unique attribute about Bizrate Rewards is the non-availability of username and password, but rather all information are tied to your email address. There is no such thing as a login button on their website, which I find quite unusual but they claim it is to make the program very easy to use for everyone. Therefore, you don’t have to bother to login or logout, however, you can check your point balance by clicking the “CHECKPOINT BALANCE” button in the bottom area of their website.
When you become a member of Bizrate Rewards, your account will be credited automatically with 500 points. To start earning points on your own, you will have to check your email regularly for survey invitations sent by Bizrate Rewards. After taking a survey, you will be awarded between 100 to 5000 points depending on the subject and length of each survey.
Points earned will be automatically deposited in the account linked to your email address within 72 hours of completing a survey, and you can find a link to redeem your points within every emailed invitation sent, click the link and follow the on-screen invitation. I find the whole process to be straightforward and clearly stated, and you wouldn’t even need anybody to put you through to have a grasp of it.
I really didn’t like the fact that I could hardly find online reviews or forums about Bizrate Rewards, and the few I saw was filled with complaints which includes; email invitation links sent to members are often not available when clicked, and also few members claim it all started well but as time goes on they stopped getting surveys.
Our experience shows that this is what happens to 99,9% of people who try survey sites. At first, they are excited about the opportunity to make easy money but then they realize that it was just a waste of their time.
Just like other survey platforms, Bizrate Rewards isn’t any different. I see a lot of people expecting to make a living from this sites, but honestly, this sites won’t make you rich. You will work so hard and devote so much time to earn just a few bucks. Definitely not worth it.
Ok, let me explain better;
With Bizrate Rewards, you will receive 1 to 3 survey invitations per week. For each survey you take, you will earn anywhere from 5 points to 5000 points per survey (the longer the survey the more points you earn). So, let’s say you earn a maximum of 5000 points… looks pretty huge right? But really that is just $5, exactly 5 Cents per survey and this can take you a whole lot of time to earn.
Well, for some people ticking a few boxes and giving your opinion about some products for that amount probably isn’t so bad but I bet nobody can live on that, I don’t think so. This is because it is almost impossible to make up to 80$ to 100$ in a month partaking in Bizrate Rewards or any other survey platforms. You basically will be clicking your whole life away, because you will have to keep taking surveys made available to you each week and in most cases, there aren’t even enough surveys for everyone.
However, you can request payment when you reach 5,000 points = $5. Currently, Bizrate Rewards pays with gift cards which include: Amazon gift cards, Walmart gift cards, Starbucks gift cards, Target gift cards, iTunes gift cards, Restaurant gift cards, Retail E-vouchers, and home depot gift cards.
Obviously, Bizrate Rewards has a low earning potential but I find it good for individuals who wants to make some extra bucks, especially those who often spend a lot of time online. (NOTE from Roope: This opinion was stated by my writer but I disagree.) Instead of wasting time surfing the internet on irrelevant stuff, this can earn you a couple of bucks but certainly, won’t make you rich.
The downside is that you can’t either earn passive income from survey sites if you are not referring new people in. However, that is not answering surveys but it’s called affiliate marketing. I know guys who have made even $1,400 for one sale with affiliate marketing and some of my friends are making +$10,000 every month.
Bizrate Rewards is no doubt a legit survey website, but you obviously cannot make a living of it. I merely see it as a way or means to earn extra cash, which at the end of the day may not be comparable to the amount of time you devote.
If you really want to make a good money online, I recommend taking a closer look at Wealthy Affiliate. They teach you every step you need to create your online business. You don’t need a single penny to get started because I offer you +12 hours of interactive video lessons and 2 websites for free.
I will also provide my 1-on-1 mentoring to help you to succeed online. Feel free to ask also how to avoid most common pitfalls to make money faster. I failed many times when I was creating my online business but they were a part of the journey. However, your journey can be much faster if you can avoid the mistakes that I made.
Have you tried Bizrate Rewards or other survey sites? Do did you end up in the same conclusion that I did? They are not worth it because it takes too much time to fill them out.
