I don't use twitter, but at least they got some automated response? I emailed them on Dec 21 with a ticket# and everything, no response as of Jan 4. That's slower than USPS!


USPS gets a lot of unfair criticism. I just received a package, Oakland to Atlanta in 2 days. USPS is far and away the best value for your money.

Interesting, sounds like you're the first one to mention PowerUp Reward (PUR) Points as a reward option, I don't see that on my list. Maybe that's part of why the GameStop GC (for many older members) is being changed to $75/$50? I don't think any of us see PUR Points.

I get points as well, no option for cards.

It's an insane amount for a few points. I think $25 for 5,000 points.

The good thing is it only takes about 5 days to get the points credited to my account.

5,000 PUR (Pick up Rewards, Gamestop members reward point system) points is like $5 off any purchase (I think 4,000 points gets $5 off used game)? So $75 in e-rewards is like a ~$15 gift card...that's even WORSE. And horrid compared to $50 e-rewards used to get a $25 gift card.

Originally, most of us got invited to e-rewards from Gamestop (email refer), that was the only way to have Gamestop gift card as a reward option.

Since most of you are bailing on e-Rewards I just wanted to point out that SurveySpree recently added GameStop to its list of rewards. $25 for $25 GC. I'm not sure if it's electronic or physical.

i dont know why everyone is all upset about it being $75 now, its always been $75 for me and i been able to get one ever quarter for the past year and a half you just have to set out the time to do the surveys

I always do the math on these surveys, and it's hard to justify the time to take these.

For example, the latest survey I got was for $3 for a 12 minute survey. If I did 5 of these 12 minute surveys (1 hour), I'd make $15. Take that $15 and divide it by $75 (cost of a $25 GS giftcard) = .2 * $25 (the value of the giftcard you get) = $4. So I'd effectively be making $4 an hour.

I get that you can rush through them but even then, I don't think it's worth my time.

Indeed. Simply put, now it's more effort for the same reward.

I didn't get a response either. Someone posted a response either earlier in this thread or in the other thread. It was some jargon about rewards are assessed periodically and are subject to change.

I used twitter and all I got is this:

"Per the Rewards’ Terms and Conditions they are subject to change at any time. I am very sorry for the inconvenience."

Well that is a big f*** you to their users.

Well a couple days ago I hit $50 again and was able to redeem.... But I think it's only a matter of time before they change it to $75 for me. I wonder how they decide which accounts have which terms? It's kinda BS to me.

Redeemed $75 for a $25 e-gc, and I got an invite for a week long $45 survey. Anyone know id you can redeem more than once a quarter?

For now I'll keep using it

Redemptions of GameStop provided rewards will be limited to one (1) redemption per calendar quarter.


Nope.

I got the same kinda response.

Thank You for contacting e-Rewards. Our Rewards are constantly under revision and as such they are subject to change. In this particular case the available reward is no longer available on the same terms as previously. However our marketing team is always looking for new reward options. Please check your reward center periodically for new reward options that may become available. Should you need more details please consult our Member Agreement.

Seems like BS since other people are still at 50

Its not just that they raised it to $75, I am pissed half the time I get a survey, I start it and a few questions in, I get kicked off the survey because I dont qualify for it or they have enough responses from my demographic (even though I take it within a couple hours of receiving the survey). I might get a whole 25 cents then. Woah! .....................Blah!

The worst is when you actually completely a survey but afterwards when you hit the final submit button to return to the erewards site it conveniently times out and you get nothing

I guess I'm sticking around for one more redemption. I swore I was done but I wanted to use up the carry-over cash from last year. A few surveys later I'm over $50. I will probably do enough surveys to get another $25 and then that will be it.

As long as they keep it at $50 for me, I'll keep doing surveys. I'll have to reassess if/when they change me over to $75.

Same here. I'm within $10 of the $75 price hike but haven't gotten a survey in at least a week.

I'm in the same boat also. I have $4.50 to get to $75 and I've been seeing maybe 1 survey a week for the last month. On top of all that, it seems they are making them harder to "pass" the survey. I've gotten full credit for 1 survey of the last 5 I've done. I guess I'm off my game :D

I finished up my last survey a few weeks ago. It put me at $75.26. I cashed out, got the card, and cancelled the account. It's been nice not to have to worry about it. :)
