How does it work?
Rewards Central is an Australian registered company that has been rewarding its members since 1999. Over $31 million dollars of rewards have been handed out in that time.
Rewards Central has been designed to gather your opinion on the products and services that you know and use everyday. Rewards Central and their partners value your opinion and want to reward you for your time. Members may be asked about a range of products and services, such as their favourite toothpaste flavour or what insurance they have. You might even be invited to try out new products that haven’t been released yet, like a new breakfast cereal flavour.
Once registered, members are invited to participate in surveys, quick polls and other tasks in order to earn points. These points can then be exchanged for gift cards to well known stores, or even cash.
It’s easy for members to see exactly which opportunities are available to them each day when they log into the member dashboard. You’ll also be able to see at a glance how many points you have earned and your experience level.
Rewards Central have also partnered with over 150 online stores to offer an easy way to shop online at your favourite sites and receive rewards. Members just select the store they want to shop at via the Rewards Central dashboard and then shop online as normal. You may also be offered exclusive discounts and rewards such as free shipping or bonus gifts.
Rewards Central also offer a mobile optimised site so that members can access surveys on the go and earn rewards even faster. Members can also check their points balance and participate in the daily guessing game to win 14,000 points.
Points and Rewards
The minimum payout for Rewards Central is only 550 points, so members benefit from being able to redeem their points very quickly. Members will also receive points for each survey that they start, even if they are screened out after only a few questions.
Points can be redeemed for gift cards from stores including:
- David Jones
- JB H-Fi
- Domino’s Pizza
- and many more
Members can also choose to donate their points to charity.
Rewards Central also offer the option to redeem your points for cash deposited directly into your Australian bank account. There is a minimum payout option of $30 for this reward.
Rewards Central points never expire so you have plenty of time to earn points and redeem the reward you want.

Rewards Central is an Australian based survey site that has been in operation since 1999. They are committed to maintaining the highest standards for the collection and use of information for research purposes. Information that you provide to Rewards Central will only be used to contact you about surveys and rewards. Any personal details or contact information that you provide to Rewards Cental won’t ever be shared with other companies, unless you allow it.
Information that you provide in a survey will be aggregated before being passed onto the researchers. That means that individual responses to survey questions won’t be able to be linked with a particular member.
