Amazon Email Gift Card Scam: Is There Real Rewards

Have you read your emails and noticed a survey that says you can get an Amazon Gift Card worth $50.00 or more? I’ve gotten quite a few emails and thought I’d give you the rundown of why you should be cautious.

I know that these Amazon potential gift cards rewards are quite appealing, however, what seems appealing could lead to a not so appealing deal. So let’s dive right into what is going on with these Amazon email gift card scam.

What Was The Survey About?


I noticed when I clicked on the link there were several surveys that came up. One was a series of questions about Amazon. They asked questions like:

  • Gender
  • How Often you shop at Amazon
  • Special offers from Amazon
  • Experience at Amazon
  • Do you have an Amazon Prime Account
  • Device you use to shop online
  • Where are you at

These questions really don’t matter how you answer because the whole goal is to get you to the offers that they want you to take a look at.

What’s In The Offer Page?


Once you reach the offer pages, what was displayed are a number of products that say you can get a great deal and your first payment is a low shipping fee.

The offers I saw were mainly products like:

AEGS Offers

  • Anti-aging
  • Male skin cream
  • Weight loss kit
  • Male Enhancement
  • Hair Growth
  • Brain power booster
  • Testosterone Booster
  • iPad (not in stock)

When I examine these products it seemed to me they were targeting people who are little more ripe in age.

If you look at the list above, I’m not that young either.

I could see a number of people who I personally know that may find value with these products and on top of that those low shipping fees is a temptation.

The Ways They Get People To Try These Offers


Most of the time offers like these will come through your email, but the way they get you in is by using some clever marketing tactics.

I’ve seen a number of ways that they try to get people to pay those low shipping fees, it could be by:

If you look at this list above, it appears that it could benefit you. This is why people tend to check out what is going on.

If You Think About It


People are in business to make money. Sometimes you have to sift through what is really going on when you see a deal that is practically for free.

Most of us are cautious though. We tend to have our guard up when we see something too good to be true. However, offers are offers no matter how they try to mask what they are doing.

If it is something that looks beneficial to you such as a $200.00 gift card, people may be inclined to pay that low shipping fee because they feel that they are getting ahead and making more than $180.00 and on top of that receiving a product that may benefit them.

Why You Should Be Cautious Regarding Offers


If you’re not careful and don’t read the fine print that these offers make, what seems to benefit you turns out to benefit the company.

What seems like a shampoo that can make your hair nice, thick and full, will end up costing you nearly $70.00 a month.

Not only that, some of these offers will bill you on a monthly basis and you may not even receive the product on a monthly basis.

You’re looking around $70.00 or more a month for a product that is probably not equal to those Salon hair products that you would buy at your Salon shop as you need.

If you read the little print, you will have to return the product before 30 days are up and on top of that, you paid shipping for nothing.

If You Are Tempted


Of course, you should take the time to read the fine print before you order anything when you decide to try an offers. Each product offer has different disclaimers, but the similarities are those monthly fees.

If you read the fine print in this one, you will notice that you have 14 days to cancel.

As you can see they state right there that you will be billed almost $94.97 on a monthly basis until you cancel.

How Do You Get The Gift Card?


I looked and I didn’t see anywhere that I have a chance at obtaining a gift card worth any money of any kind.

At least with the review, I did about the Facebook survey, people had a way to try and get their gift card or any reward.

As for this one, it was an email and from there a survey and from there offers.

The offer page did explain their terms if you take the time to read the fine print.

The only fine print I found within the survey was this one.

the gift card scam no affiliation

If you noticed in that disclaimer they talked about consumer-response.info.

What I did is a Google search and was hoping to find out where and how the rewards work. But instead, I seen a number of results in Google that shows how to remove consumer-response.info virus.

You can go look it up yourself.

I’m calling this one a scam because from my research, I didn’t find no rewards at all for any gift cards.

On top of that, if you’re not a satisfied customer, some offers require you to send back the product you tried and you lose out on the product, the shipping fee and in my book those offers are overpriced.

All In All

In my book, this is another way for a business owner to make money.

I feel that it could be a little misleading especially for those who don’t take the time to read the fine print.

When you see a deal that is too good to be true, in reality, it is. Offers are offers and they usually come with high charges, shipping fees and sometimes they require you to return the product and yet, you still paid a shipping fee for nothing.

Please stay safe.

  1. Hi I also took one of the survey for $1000 amazon gift card. Honestly it looked so real, so I put my name address and phone number and after that it asked me to take the survey, after May like 5 or 6 question I felt uncomfortable and exit the survey my question is am I at risk?

    • Hey Sadi, They do make what they are offering look so real. As long as you didn’t put any financial info you should be okay. You probably will get a lot of spam emails and junk mail, also run a virus scan on your computer.

  2. Third time doing survey and choose the CBD oil due to broken neck and back wanted to try other than taking oxycontin and Percocet. But really wanted to get the iPad and every time it “says (out of stock)” this is legally false advertising as my brother is a lawyer and have screen shots from every time so he will be filling a suit thank you.

    Sent this to then I think and technically they can get sued as showing a iPad and never have as a reward

    • Hey Christopher, I’m so sorry about your neck, it must be hard. I brunt my foot badly a while back and getting through the pain is not fun, so I understand how difficult it could be. I’m better now, but pain is not fun, my prayers are with you.

      As for this Amazon gift card scheme it’s amazing what they use to try to get people to buy. Just like how you wanted the iPad and it’s out stock. It could be and I’m assuming that they can’t use iPad because Apple probably doesn’t endorse these types of tactics so the put an image up making appear that everyone already got the iPad.

      Thanks for your thoughts, My prayers are with you and I hope you get better,

      Evelyn.

    • I fell for it and they charged me 3x about $98. Any suggestions on what to do now? I contacted them and they refuse to give me a refund. I contacted my bank who is investigating the matter. I reached out to Amazon who confirmed that the email was not from them. I am so angry. Should I contact the news? I don’t have a lawyer to file suit. This is a scam, but how can I get my money back? Any help will be appreciated. Thanks.
