Frequently Asked Questions
- What is Get Scratchers?
Get Scratchers is a website where members earn points by completing partner offers like watching videos and taking surveys. Member can then redeem their points for virtual Scratchers.
Virtual Scratchers are a lot like the lottery scratchers you can buy, except they are online, so you can "scratch" with your mouse and get your prize immediately! Prizes include free scratchers and cash prizes.
Get Scratchers operates as a sweepstakes, not an actual lottery. If you'd like to learn how the sweepstakes work, please visit our terms page.
- Where are my points?
Unfortunately points aren't always awarded instantaneously. We do our best to work with advertising partners who let us know instantly when you have completed an offer, but sometimes the advertisers are delayed in reporting back to us whether a consumer has successfully completed an offer.
Our site will update you with a notification when your account is updated if you are logged in at thaht time. If not, you will need to log in to check on the status of your completed offers.
- I think I completed an offer but no points showed up?
We try and make it as clear as possible what steps you need to complete in order to get points from a specific advertiser. Sometimes we bring on crummy advertisers. If you see an advertising offer that isn't brand new that has no other completions, most likely that is an indication that the advertiser is being overly picky in what it regards as a successful completion.
- How do I get more scratchers?
- How do I get my cash?
- How can you afford prizes just by having me taking surveys or watching videos?
We work with advertisers who are willing to pay for your time and your interactions. For example, if you sign up for Netflix to get points, Netflix pays us a small portion of your membership fee. We use that small amount of money to pay for maintaining the site and paying out in prizes.
- Can I earn scratchers if I am outside the US?
Not yet—come back soon.
- How does the referral program work?
It's another easy way to get more scratchers. You refer friends by sending them a custom url. Get your custom URL.
As your friends click on the link and sign up, they will start earning points. You'll get 10% of their earnings forever.
For example, if Sam refers Cheyenne and Cheyenne earns 1,500 points, Sam gets 150 points (10% on Cheyenne's 1,500)
The points are delivered as your friends earn theirs.
It gets even better—for every friend that your friends refer, you get 2% of their earnings.
For example, if Sam refers Cheyenne and Cheyenne earns 1500 points. Then Cheyenne refers Ruth and Ruth earns 3,000 points, then Sam gets 150 points (10% on Cheyenne's 1,500) AND 60 points (2% on Ruth's 3,000 points).
You continue earning points based on your friend's actions and your friends of friends actions as long they continue to earn points.
So simply by referring friends who participate, you can get Scratchers!
