Join, earn, and redeem. That’s the model for Rewards Buck. Similar to a website that I’ve reviewed in the past; Swagbucks. You can basically sign up, play games and earn free gift cards.
Just to keep in mind, it’s certainly not free. Most websites like Rewards Buck requires you to spend a significant amount of time before you can actually make some decent money.
If you do the dollar per hour calculation, you’ll realize that you’re actually losing money if you were to instead spend the time working a regular minimum waged job.
However, after exploring Rewards Buck, my opinion on it has changed slightly. It’s actually not bad with a great rewards program.
For those who don’t want to read this entire article: I don’t recommend Rewards Buck if you’re looking to replace your income. I do recommend it to those who are only searching for entertainment while earning sandwich money.
An Overview On Rewards Buck
Rewards Buck is a property of Main Source Media, LLC. It is absolutely free to join and your goal is to earn lots of points. The points are digital currencies that you can redeem for gift cards.
In order to gain points, you will have to do various tasks such as installing and trying out different phone apps, playing games, etc.
The way it works is, Rewards Buck is affiliated with different programs and services. Whenever a new user signs up for the programs through Rewards Buck, they will earn a commission. Obviously, they earn much more than you, but that’s how they are able to reward you with gift cards.
Note: Some offers through Rewards Buck are completely free while others may cost money. When you select offers that cost money (usually trial offers), you will earn more points.
The Pros Of Rewards Buck
Easy To Register: There’s a lot of things that I like about Rewards Buck such as the ease of sign up. You don’t need to fill out long applications like a credit application. All you need is a valid name, email, and create a password.
Free Points For Starters: You’ll also be rewarded with start-up points to get you up and ready (125 points total). With that, you will only need another 875 points to redeem for your first $10.00 (1,000 points).
Ways To Make Money Plus User-Friendly Platform: I also really enjoyed the available options to earn points and how organized the entire system is designed. I love trying new mobile apps, so it was not only fun, but it was also rewarding!
I don’t keep most of the apps that I download though because some are just a waste of space (personal preference). But you might find one or two that you really enjoy while earning points toward your first $10.00.
Now on to organization, the entire system is designed to be user-friendly. This is a huge plus for me because I’ve tried programs where I felt like I was inside a maze.
The Cons Of Rewards Buck
Cannot Make A Good Living: Unfortunately, if you want to replace your job. Rewards Buck will take you probably thousands of years to earn enough.
The free offers will take forever to accumulate enough points to redeem for anything significant. Even the paid offers will not do you any good because you’ll have to spend money first. After spending money on the paid offers, your return on investment is minuscule.
No PayPal Payout Option: I am not a fan of gift cards. It’s always hard to spend enough money to completely drain out every penny. Also, it’s not as fast and secure when it comes to PayPal. What happens if my gift card gets lost during delivery?
Potential Spam: Yup, that’s the problem that you’ll face when using these services. Sometimes they will redirect you to another website in order to claim your points. Some might ask for your info and when you offer it up, you might start receiving spam emails (you can unsubscribe), but it’s annoying.
After reviewing Rewards Buck, I will have to NOT recommend this to people who are looking to replace their job. However, I do recommend this to people who are okay with earning sandwich money with a bit of entertainment.
Overall though, I will have to give it a 3 out of 5 stars because it doesn’t meet my expectations when it comes to making money online.
I’ve actually tried to earn a living with websites like Rewards Buck and it just doesn’t work. Plus, I don’t have the patience to actually earn enough for the payout threshold.
As you can see, I now have my own website and make my own decisions. When you use services like Rewards Buck, you are being leveraged. They are leveraging YOUR time. If you want to learn how to do what I do? Sign up for your free copy of my ultimate passive income model eBook.
