    A: The Requirements
    - I: What you'll need

    To start earning on Rewards1, you don't need much: the basic requirement is a computer and an internet connection:



    Check! But it helps to have some other things. As you can see here, I have a USB thumb drive plugged into my USB port. Is this because I forgot to take it out? Or that I need it for files? Hell naw! I'm using it to boost my computer's physical memory to reduce latency with my computer. Latency, or computer lag, can be extremely annoying. Plugging in a, say 4GB usb, and allocating 3.5 GB's of that with Windows ReadyBoost speeds up a system tremendously. It is worth it for doing offers - that said, you don't need to.



    Oh yeah. You'll also need a Rewards1 account! But you've probably already got that. As well as the Computer part. And the internet connection...

      - II: Points: How they work

      Points, R1 Points, R1P, or by their more common name, pts, are the main currency you'll find yourself earning on Rewards1. As you complete more and more things under the earn tab, you'll find that your points start to accumulate. The rate at which you earn points is entirely up to you - one day, you might do enough offers in one sitting to earn 250 points, and in another, you might earn 50 points. It depends on how you work.

      Each point you earn is one cent, and these can be redeemed for prizes - either virtual, or physical items.

        - III: Cash: How to get some wonga

        Cash! Yep, if you want it, we have it. Rewards1 offers you the opportunity to earn cash online, and while it's not as well paid as a job, you can easily pocket some nice cash. The main method of earning cash with Rewards1 is to complete a survey, cash offer, or by referring.

        The top referrer on Rewards1 has earned over $12,000, and holds the record for the largest cheque cashed out - a whopping $3,000! If you haven't realized, referring is where the cash money dolla' is at - more on that later.

          - IV: Conversions

          You may be saying, "Haha, this is simple! I'll just convert my points to cash and make a ton of money!", but it's not that simple. I'm sorry to shatter your dream life of being a rich pimp, but that goes against the terms set down by the sponsors. I'll say it right here: You can NOT convert points to cash. However, you can convert cash to points. The ratio is $1 per 100 points.

          Converting points to cash has the benefit of allowing you to get those few extra points needed for your prize. Also, while cash can not be transferred between users, points can - allowing for trade, whether it being for goods or real life money (trading points to users for money IS allowed).

            - V: Recap of part A

            Here are the basics of this part of the guide:
            • To use Rewards1, all you need is a Computer, internet connection, and an account, although I recommend you to use the ReadyBoost function on a USB thumb drive - not just to help you on Rewards1, but for general computer peformance!
            • Points, or pts, are the main currency of Rewards1. You earn them by completing various tasks and offers around the site.
            • Cash is exactly what it says - cash. You can earn this through special ways of earning.
            • You can convert cash to points at a ratio of $1 to 100 points, but you can't convert points to cash.

              B: Earning
              - I: Offers and Special offers

              Offers and Special offers - the cream of the crop. These will, undoubtedly, be your main sources of point earning. Why? I don't know, actually. It's just likely. Most offers or special offers follow a simple structure - you are given a set of instructions to follow, a link, and a point reward for completing them, or even a cash reward. I'd recommend you make a spam e-mail in case an offer requires your e-mail address.

              PROTIP: Special offers are made up of various offer walls. Try different ones and see which suits you best!

                - II: Daily Surveys

                Daily Surveys are the main method of making cash. They are simple - you choose a survey panel, follow the instructions, and it'll match you with a survey. If you qualify and successfully complete the survey, you'll get paid a set amount in cash!

                In my honest opinion, which for the purpose of this guide is unbiased, Daily Surveys are a great way to earn some pimp money-I mean wonga-I mean cash.

                  - III: Paid To Click and Tasks

                  First, don't rely on PTC. It's good to do occasionally, but can I personally recommend it? No. Do it if it's there to do, but don't rely on it.

                  Now, tasks. Tasks are very good. While it's unlikely you'll get all of your points from tasks, they can be a nice source of points. They are tasks given to you by companies that usually involve gathering data. They put you in control - how much you do, when you do it, and how you do it. I enjoy tasks. A LOT.

                    - IV: Games

                    Avoid games. They are mainly for fun, but they award points SO RARELY, that I can NOT recommend them in ANY circumstances.

                    Sorry for anyone who got excited at this option, but games may expand sooner or later. It's a possibility, but not being Rewards1 staff, I can't guarantee it.

                      - V: Recap of part B

                      Here are the basics of this part of the guide:
                      • Offers and special offers will be your main method of earning points.
                      • Daily Surveys will be your main method of earning cash.
                      • Paid To Click is nice to earn a little cash, but don't rely on it.
                      • Tasks are nice for something different.
                      • Avoid games.

                        C: Redeeming
                        - I: Gift Cards

                        If you've earned at least 500 points, congratulations! You've reached the minimum amount to order a prize - $5, or 500 points.

                        The most basic prize is a Gift Card - these are codes usable at many sites or stores to pay for items. For example, you can get a 500 point Amazon GC, which is good for $5 at amazon.com! Best of all, there is no limit on the amount - if you want a $1000 Amazon Gift Card, and you have the points, go ahead!

                          - II: Game Codes and Game Gold

                          What are Game Codes? Game Codes are codes that are usable in various games. Each game code is specific for the game it's designed for. For example, if you want a game code for LoL, then Rewards1 stocks Riot Point cards! If you want a Runescape membership, then Rewards1 stocks UGC's (Ultimate Game Cards - usable at many games, including RuneScape - and best of all, R1 sells $10 cards for only 875 points)! If you want a WoW game code, then R1 stocks WoW game time cards!

                          The list is endless. Rewards1 also allows you to spend your points on Game Gold - this is currently only for WoW - meaning you can use your points to get gold in-game and use it to boost your character!

                            - III: Payouts: Reclaiming that wonga

                            Earned at least $5 in cash? Have no fear, you can reclaim it easily! Head over to the payout page, and you'll be presented with two options:
                            • Payment by PayPal
                            • Payment by Cheque


                            The recommended payment method is PayPal, which has lower fees. However, if you prefer your money in-hand, consider a cheque payment.

                              - IV: Custom Requests

                              Custom Requests allow you to buy anything - as long as it isn't dangerous or inappropriate (sorry to all pimps). The general rule when ordering custom rewards is, to use your common sense!

                              The basic requirement on the form is a URL to the item, the name of the item, a description, and the cost.
