If you are looking for a free way to make some extra money online, you have maybe come across PrizeRebel which is one of the big Get-Paid-To (GPT) and survey sites.
But is PrizeRebel legit and a site worth joining, or is it a scam where you will not earn anything?
I am myself a long-term member of the platform, and let me just reveal right away that it is legit – but that does not necessarily mean it is the right option for you.
In this 2021 PrizeRebel review, you will get all the details about what it really offers.
This will make it easy for you to find out if it will be worth it for YOU or not.
The review is a bit long as PrizeRebel has a lot to offer, and I want to cover as much as possible and also show you how to use the platform.
But if you are not interested in all the details, you can just scroll down to the conclusion:-)

What is PrizeRebel and what does the site offer?
PrizeRebel is one of the big players within online paid survey sites and Get-Paid-To sites (GPT). It has existed since 2007 and according to their own numbers, it has more than 8 million users and has paid out over $17 million in rewards.
In general, it is a good sign when a survey or GPT site has existed for this long and is still going strong. But that in itself is not enough to decide for sure how good a site is. I can, however, reveal right away that PrizeRebel is definitely a legit and safe site.
I have been paid by it MANY times myself, and it is one of the GPT sites I have had the most success with.
Later in this review, I will also show you payment proof so you can see that I am actually an active member of the platform and that it is possible to earn there.
This does however not mean it will be the right site for you. So let’s first go over the different earning methods PrizeRebel offers so you can see if it will be for you or not.
Option 1 – PrizeRebel paid surveys:
If you have visited here on PaidFromSurveys.com, you will know that I am a big fan of paid surveys. I find it to be a great way to earn some extra cash and at the same time have your opinion heard.
PrizeRebel is one of the sites that offer paid surveys, and you can find a good amount of paid surveys here and it is a great way to earn on PrizeRebel.
Once you have logged in, you can go to the “earn” tab and choose surveys or offers. You will then get a list of different survey providers that PrizeRebel is cooperating with and that you can take surveys through.
Usually, you will also see an overview of the different survey providers on your dashboard when you log in.
You can find quite a few different survey providers on PrizeRebel and therefore also often many daily chances for doing surveys.
So you choose the surveys you think sound interesting and answer the questions. Once you have done the surveys, you will get the reward into your PrizeRebel account.
The first time you take surveys, you will be asked for a few profile questions. This is to ensure you are a real person as PrizeRebel, of course, needs to ensure the quality of the participant on their site. The information is only used to match you with surveys and will not be shared with others as PrizeRebel is a trustworthy site.
Compared to many similar sites, PrizeRebel is one of the sites that give some of the highest rewards for the time spent for many of the surveys.
You can always see the reward you will get before you start a survey. There will also be a time estimate, that tells you how much time you can expect to spend on the survey. This is just an estimate and depends on how fast you are at reading and answering questions.
In my case, the estimate for most surveys is quite accurate, and often I am also doing it quite a bit faster than the estimate. But I am also used to doing online surveys, so in the beginning, you should expect to have to spend at least the estimated time.
Be aware that the exact number of survey providers and available surveys depends on where you live and your profile. So some places you will see more opportunities than others, but I will get more into this later.
Also, as on all other sites that offer paid surveys, you will not qualify for all surveys. That is just a part of taking online surveys. So if you do not qualify for some surveys, do not let that stop you. You will also find many you qualify for.
Be aware that especially for the surveys from the Your Surveys provider, you will get a quality score and you can see that at the top of the screen.
If this goes below 100, this might cause you to get fewer or no surveys at all. It is a score based on, for example, how consistent you are, if you pay attention, and more. So make sure to pay attention when answering the surveys if you want to continue having access to them.
A great thing about PrizeRebel is that you can find paid surveys from countries all over the world so you can earn this way more or less no matter where you live. But it is also a good idea to use some of the other methods to get the most out of the site.
Option 2 – Paid Offers:
You can find a big section with paid offers on offer walls on PrizeRebel.
Offers is some kind of activity you have to complete to get a reward. It is simply said a kind of advertisement by one of PrizeRebel’s partners you have to interact with, and then you will get a reward and are therefore called paid offers.
This can be a great and easy way to earn good rewards. Most of the offers require you to register for something like for example a website, and in some cases, it also requires that you will pay an amount – for example for buying a certain product or for a trial of a certain service. Even though this might at first sound annoying and scary, it can really be worth considering.
Let me give you a few examples why it is worth considering checking out the offer section once in a while.
You can, for example, earn a reward by downloading and opening an app, you can earn a reward by registering for a free trial at a website or play a Facebook game. All things that we often do anyway, so why not get paid for it, right?
A concrete example of an offer I have once taken was an offer where I could get a $15 reward to sign up for an online betting platform. I had to register at the betting platform and pay a deposit there, but that was only $12 I had to deposit.
So for doing that, I would be sure to get a profit of $3 + I got a joining bonus at the betting platform, so I had $25 to bet for there and had the chance to win a lot more – in this case, I did not win extra, as my betting skills are not the best, but the opportunity was there:-).
So that is a really good deal, and the offers can, therefore, be a great way to really boost your earnings and at the same time also get some good deals.
Just be sure to read the details and conditions for each offer before signing up, so you know what the demands are for you to get your reward.
Option 3 – Get paid to play games:
As a part of the offers, you can also often find games you can download and play. I just wanted to give an example of this as well, as this can give you some great extra rewards if you like to play games anyway.
There are often small games you can download and just open and play very shortly and you will get a small reward for this. And then there are also some, where you are required to play them to a certain level before you will get the rewards, but these rewards can then also be really good.
I have for example seen games where you will get $5-6 for installing it and playing it up to a certain level. That is pretty good if you like to play anyway.
Also in these cases be sure to check the exact terms on PrizeRebel’s site before you use the offers, so you know what you need to fulfill to get your rewards.
As you can see in the image above, the terms are easy to see before you download the games.
For many of the games, you, for example, have to open them latest 15 minutes after you have clicked the offer button for it to be registered. Or you might need to reach a certain level in the game so qualify for the reward. This is very important to know, so read the requirements before taking any of the game offers.
Option 4 – Watch videos:
PrizeRebel has a big section with videos you can watch and get paid for it. You usually get paid for every 3 videos/ads you watch.
There are a lot of different topics you can choose from, so you can definitely find a topic that will be interesting for you. Examples are viral videos, travel videos, science & tech, sport, and health.
There is no limit to how many videos you can watch, which is really great. You will, however, not get paid a lot for watching them, so you have to go through a lot to earn any real money.
However, there is, of course, the option to let the videos run, when you are not using the computer so if you have several screens it can be a way to earn a bit without much effort.
But many of the videos are actually also pretty interesting to watch, so you might also find them entertaining. But you should not expect to make a big deal of money by watching them and many of the other options on PrizeRebel are more effective, in my experience.
Also, be aware that you will only earn if ads are showing in the video. And ads are not always available and not in all countries. So you cannot always earn this way.
Option 5 – Daily challenges:
Every day you can see a daily challenge when you log in. You can see it on the left side of your screen if you log in on a desktop computer.
It is a time-sensitive challenge and you need to reach a certain amount of points that day, and then you will get an extra bonus. You can always see how much time you have left to complete the challenge and how close you are to reaching it.
There is also a 5-Day challenge so if you complete the daily challenge 5 days in a row you will get an extra bonus.
It will not give you huge earnings, but you will automatically participate if you use PrizeRebel actively, and then it is a nice little extra bonus to get.
Option 6 – Raffles:
You can use some of your earnings to enter raffles (later I will go into how you can get your earnings out in other ways).
PrizeRebel has new raffles every week, and usually, the prizes are gift cards for $5-10. It only costs 10 cents per ticket, so it can be a way to multiply your earnings if you are lucky.
You find this option by going to the “Win” tab in the main menu and choose “Raffles”. You can then see the current raffles, the upcoming raffles, and easily buy tickets for it if you want to participate.
Option 7 – Lucky numbers:
Lucky numbers are another way to try to win extra rewards on PrizeRebel. You will buy a lottery ticket and pick 4 numbers.
If your numbers match once the draw is made, you will win the jackpot. There is usually a new lottery every week.
The tickets only cost 20 points and you can win some good prizes. Especially if you win the jackpot. So if you feel lucky, it might be worth checking out the lucky numbers section.
Option 8 – Free contests:
PrizeRebel has a number of different contests you can participate in for free and get the chance to win extra rewards.
Some contests you will automatically participate in by having activity on the platform.
There is usually every two weeks a contest where the members who are doing the most surveys, most tasks, and the most offers will win extra rewards. Under the “win” tab, you can see the current standing and where you are on the list.
Other contests you have to actively participate in. There are quite regularly new contests announced on PrizeRebel’s Facebook and Twitter account. They are very easy to participate in and often you just have to like and comment on Facebook for a chance to win a gift card of somewhere between $5-25.
In general, I find these free contests and the chance to win extra with a certain amount of activity very nice and a good chance to get some extra money with little effort.
As you can see, PrizeRebel offers a lot of different opportunities, and I must say the opportunities are in general pretty good compared to many other similar websites.
Like any other legit survey site, PrizeRebel is free to join and use.
Option 9 – Invite friends:
The last way you can earn is by using the PrizeRebel referral program. This is where you can earn a bit extra by inviting friends to join the platform.
As a member, you will get access to a referral link and if you invite someone who joins through this link, you will earn a commission every time they earn. So if you know a lot of people that might be interested in using PrizeRebel actively, it can be a way to earn a bit extra.
PrizeRebel promo codes – get free points
An extra thing worth knowing about PrizeRebel is that it often has promo codes. These are codes that will be announced and then you can use this code once you are logged in, and this will give you some free points.
Because you are visiting PaidFromSurveys.com you will also get a special welcome bonus code I have been given to share with visitors to my website. So to get your first free points right away after joining, you can use this code: pfsbonus2
It is very easy to do and only takes a few seconds. You just need to know where to find these promo codes.
In addition to the welcome bonus code above that is only because you have visited my website, you can also regularly find other promo codes for PrizeRebel.
Just keep an eye on the Facebook or Twitter page of PrizeRebel, and the codes will be announced here regularly. Usually, a code is only valid for the same day it is posted, so you have to check the social media regularly if you want to use this option.
But if you are regularly checking your social media anyway, it does not take long to check if there is a new promo come.
Then when you see a code published, you just copy it and put it into the required field on your account (see image above), and then you will get the free points. A new code is mostly published several times a week (usually 2-3 times), so there are good chances to use this to earn a bit extra without much effort.
PrizeRebel membership levels
An important aspect to understand about PrizeRebel is that it has membership levels.
That means that you as a user starts at the lowest level, and with activity and earnings, you will be able to get to a higher level, and this will give you more benefits.
There are 5 levels starting from bronze (you will start here when you join), silver, gold, platinum, and finally diamond. You will move to silver level already when you have earned 1000 points. And then you can continue up the ladder (see image below).
The advantages it will give are that once you reach gold level, your preferred reward will automatically be processed when you have made enough to claim it, and the higher you go, the more bonuses you will get.
You will get a higher bonus for inviting friends to join PrizeRebel as you move up through the levels, and will start receiving special bonuses at the end of every month, which will be a percentage of all your earnings.
You will also start to get a discount on the rewards you claim. You can see the below image for details about what bonuses you will get at the different levels.
I have reached the Diamond level myself (see proof of this later in the article), so I know from experience that you will for sure get these extra bonuses, which are a great way to boost your earnings.
Get notifications in your browser
The browser add-on is a pretty cool feature PrizeRebel has to make it easy for you to get updates about new opportunities on the platform.
It allows you to install an add-on in your browser, that will give you certain notifications and updates about PrizeRebel, so you do not have to log in all the time to check.
The add-on will, for example, give you notifications when new surveys are available, and in my opinion, the coolest thing about it is that it will let you know when there are new promo codes, and you can redeem them directly in the add-on.
At the moment the add-on is available for Chrome and Firefox.
So if you are using one of these browsers, this can be a great and easy way to stay updated and for example, make sure not to miss any of the promo codes and free points you can get this way.
How do you get paid?
The opportunities and ways to earn is an important aspect of any survey site and reward portal. But another very important aspect is how you will then be able to get your rewards paid out.
And the PrizeRebel payment methods are really good, in my opinion.
First of all, you have the option to get paid through PayPal, which I really like when a survey site offers, as it is a great way to get paid in cash.
If you like getting paid in cash, you can also in a few countries get paid through Dwolla, which means you can get your earnings transferred directly into your bank account.
It further offers a number of different electronic or physical gift cards to for example Amazon, Skype, Visa, Debenhams, Facebook, and many more. You can also use your rewards to online games like Minecraft or League of Legends. So there are really good options no matter what your preferences are.
When you do anything on PrizeRebel, you will earn points that can then be exchanged into one of the rewards mentioned above. 100 points are equivalent of $1.
You can request a PayPal payment already when you have earned 500 points ($5), and some gift cards already when you have earned $2.
These are really nice low payout threshold compared to many other survey sites. When you join, you can right away earn 25 points by taking a guided tour and fill out your profile, which is a good start, and it will not take you long to reach the payout threshold.
In my experience, the payouts are also processed very quickly, and especially once you have had a few payouts it will go even faster. Usually, I have the money in my PayPal account less than 24 hours after requesting a payout.
How much time does it take to make money?
It is really up to you how much time you want to spend. But the more time you use, the more you will of course earn.
You can do a few things a day, or you can start doing as much as possible and do all the surveys, tasks and offers you can. Then you will end up spending quite a bit of time, but your earnings will also be higher.
At first, it might also take a bit of time to get used ti using PrizeRebel and the more you get used to it and the higher a membership you get, the more you can earn.
To help you get the best possible start, I have created a tutorial below and there you can also see more about what you can expect in terms of earnings.
How to use PrizeRebel? (Payment proof included)
Below, I have made a small video walk-through of PrizeRebel so you can see exactly how to use it.
In the video, I also show payment proof so you can see it is a site where you can make money. You can also read more details below the video:
The size of the rewards you get in relation to the time spent is about the same as the other survey sites on my top 10 list. PrizeRebel does, however, have some great extra features that make it easy to make a bit extra like the contests, membership levels, and promo codes.
PrizeRebel is one of the survey sites where I spend most time myself. As you can see below, I have therefore been able to get the Diamond membership, which is the highest level and gives some great extra bonuses, as I have mentioned before.
You need to make $315 to get to that level and below you can see proof I have reached this and thereby see payment proof so you know it is a platform that really pays.
It is definitely possible to reach the Diamond level fairly quickly if you make an effort. So putting in some time on PrizeRebel can definitely be worth it, and it can then make some nice extra money.
Like with any other survey site and online reward portal, it is important to remember that you will not be able to make a full-time income by being a member.
You can make some really nice extra money on PrizeRebel, but do not expect it to make you rich, as you will then be disappointed.
What are the best times to earn on PrizeRebel?
In general, PrizeRebel has many daily surveys and other opportunities. But one thing I have noticed is that certain times at the week give better opportunities than others.
There are usually fewer opportunities during the weekends than during the weekdays. That does not mean you will not find any opportunities at the weekends, because there are still some. It just means that there will be less.
So be aware of this, if you join PrizeRebel during a weekend – there might be fewer opportunities, so make sure to check it during weekdays as well to get the full benefit of the options.
Also, surveys, offers, etc. come and go all the time, so just because there are no options when you log in at a certain time, it does not mean there won’t be more opportunities later the same day.
I have also noticed that especially around Christmas time or other holiday seasons, PrizeRebel has fewer opportunities. So if you around those times suddenly feel that there are not as many opportunities as usual – do not worry. More offers will come back shortly after the holiday seasons.
Who can join PrizeRebel?
You can join PrizeRebel from most countries. Not all countries do however have the same amount of opportunities.
The most opportunities will be for people living in the US, UK, Australia, and Canada. But you will also find really good opportunities in for example Germany, France, Scandinavia, Netherlands, South Africa, Thailand, Malaysia, India, Indonesia, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, and you can also find great ways to earn on PrizeRebel in many other countries.
You can join as long as you are 13 years old. When you are between 13-18 years old, you do however need consent from your guardians.
Can you get support?
If you run into any issues at a platform you are a member of, it is always nice to be able to have a chance to contact an official support service. Not all survey sites offer great support.
How good a support function any site has, tells a lot about the overall credibility and quality of the site. And PrizeRebel has excellent support.
I have myself contacted them several times and have gotten a quick and helpful answer every time.
If you look at the social media channels of PrizeRebel, you can see that the support is also very active here. If you have any questions or concerns, they are very quick to get back to you there as well.
If you should need support, the best way to contact the support is through the help section on the website. You can then choose a topic you need help with. If it is not answered in the FAQ section, you can submit a ticket.
Good support is a very good quality to have for a survey and GPT site, and good to know that you can get support on PrizeRebel if you should need it.
From what you have read above, you can probably figure out that PrizeRebel is a legit site and not a scam. I know that from personal experience as I have been paid it many times myself.
But let’s finish this review by summing up the pros and cons to give you a better overview of what it offers before you decide if it is for you or not.
- Free to join.
- Big amount of surveys, tasks, and offers.
- Low payout threshold.
- You can get paid in cash.
- Great support, if you need it.
- A lot of extra ways to earn through levels, contests, and promo codes.
- You will not qualify for all surveys (but that goes for any survey site).
- In some countries, there are not a lot of opportunities.
If you want to earn some extra cash online for free by taking surveys and doing other small micro-tasks, PrizeRebel is definitely worth signing up for, in my opinion.
Compared to many other similar sites, it has really great opportunities and earning potentials, and it is a site I have had great results with myself. The only thing you have to be aware of is that it does not offer a huge amount of opportunities in certain parts of the world.
But as mentioned earlier, it does have many opportunities for a lot of different countries compared to many other similar sites, and it is definitely a good site to sign up for. And it is free to sign up for, so it is easy to test it in your own country.
