Savings of the Day -- dumping eRewards!

April 29th, 2006 at 08:02 pm

I really thought eRewards might work out, lots of surveys and rewards. Cashing in that FTD reward was a challenge...but I thought if I started earlier I could use my remaining rewards to send flowers for Mothers Day.

No such luck. ONE reward of each category PER YEAR!!!

They don't have many rewards.

Most of their rewards require you to SPEND MONEY, i.e., they are discounts on purchases.

So, I took $50 of eRewards and got the free Omaha Steaks package (with $35 purchase), bought $39 in steaks on sale, and I'M DONE WITH eRewards. I've never tried Omaha steaks, they sound outrageously expensive. But, again, only one redemption PER YEAR.

If THEY are going to take 30 minutes of my time AND my business information (no cute product surveys here), for a $2 "eReward", over and over that I can receive a coupon which requires me to SPEND more money? I don't think so.

But, once I have "rewards" in an account, I dont' want them to go wasted, unused, or I removed the temptation. CANCELED.

That's my savings of the day!

    We got Omaha steaks once, on one of their specials. In my opinion and my husband's opinion, they weren't anything special. I've had better for less money, but I've also had worse for more money. I'd say they were pretty much in the middle. Certainly nothing for me to consider ordering again, not even at sale prices.

    Omaha steaks is a waste of money I agree. I use eRewards for my Hilton Honors points for free rooms and have no problems, plus I get plenty of surveys each month to be worth my while, (of course I have many interests checked). I have found my favorite to be Mypoints, you should try that one out.
