The first thing that struck me about Reward Bee, is that it says on their website that you can $30 or more in reward points, that you can spend today. Yep, today.
That confused me somewhat, as I was thining this was a survey website and not only is earning $30 from surveys in a day is unrealistic, but actually getting the money to spend in the same day, is also unheard of.
So, are these claims realistic? Or is Reward BEE a scam? At this time, it’s worth noting that this site is only open to US residents.
Review In Brief:
Company: Reward BEE
Money Making Opportunity: pocket money.
Cost to join: free
Overall Rating: I think it appears legit, (although there are some red flags). However, it’s not a site I’d recommend!
What Is Reward Bee & How Does It Work?
Reward Bee is a little different to many survey-related sites that I look into.
Primarily because, with practically all of these sites, you have to go through screening questions before completing surveys and, more often than not, you get chcuked off for not qualifying.
With Reward Bee, you can earn points for filling out questionnaires and for your time, you can use these points towards cashback, or magaizines.
Sounds OK… Is there a catch? Hmmm … kind of yes, stay with me and I will explain why.
PROS VS CONS
– DIfferent to the regular survey site, as there will be no disqualificaiton/no screening quesitons.
– It’s free, but all sites like this should be free to join, (if they aren’t, be suspicious!).
– The surveys on offer are reported to be pretty quick to answer.
– Unlike many survey sites, there isn’t paypal or gift cards on offer here. Just magazines and minimal cashback offers available.
– You are only able to sign up presently, if you’re in the US.
Rewards At Reward Bee?
So, one thing that sent alarm bells ringing in my mind, was how much they apparently pay you to complete a questionnaire… $30.
Another warning sign for me, was I couldn’t see an “about us,” page and this is typically something that you should be able to find on a legitimate website.
While this doesn’t mean Reward Bee is a scam, this is a red flag and would suggest to me that I probably shouldn’t trust this company.
Including that they will use your info to spam send you info about other products and services that you may be interested in. Your information will also probably be shared with third parties.
What About That $30 Per Questionnaire?
The way they say that you can earn these reward points to spend today, it makes it sound pretty attractive.
But actually, even if you complete a questionnaire for reward points, you can only then go ahead an exchange them for a magazine subscription.
Each magazine subscription is mainly worth $10 of points….. BUT, (and this is a big BUT) … you can only actually redeem one of these subscriptions per YEAR!!!
Cashback is even less attractive, as you’ll only be eligible for a small percentage cashback and that’s only after you’ve actually purchased something. So, you’re going to have to want to actually buy something on offer first.
As far as rewards go, this has to be one of the worst I’ve seen to date, (aside from the outright scams obviously).
Have you seen worse? Why not let me know in the comments?
Is Reward Bee A Scam?
The only good thing about Reward Bee, is that there aren’t a pre-set of questions you have to answer to qualify. That’s really it though.
The rewards on offer are very disappointing. If you want to check out a legit rewards site that provides a tonne of giftcards you can choose from, this is my personal favourite at the moment.
While I cannot say that Reward Bee is a scam, it’s just not something I’d personally recommend.
Beyond Survey Sites – Can You Make Money Online?
While I have given many survey sites a go, as well as various other ways to make quick money online. Most of them are disappointing.
For the most part, it’s because making quick and easy money online doesn’t exist.
To make more substantial money online, (and I mean, hundreds, or thousands of dollars every month) you need to do something that is going to take time and effort to build, but that can pay you back in the long term.
That’s why I ended up starting a website, actually I’ve started many websites over the last several years. Most of them fell by the wayside… but some I kept going, like this one!
The thing is, when you’re passionate about something, it does make it easier to stay motivated. For me, I enjoy looking for ways that you can make and save money online.
I write about that because I enjoy it and I started making money from talking about something I am interested in, mainly via affiliate marketing.
I also have tens of thousands of pageviews to my website every month to my website right now, which feels like an achievement from somebody who had zero technical ability when they started.
So… Doing something you love, helping people and getting rewarded for it in the process? That has to be a WIN-WIN situation?
Do you have a favourite rewards site? I’d love to hear about it! Drop me a comment below…
All the best,
