Frequently Asked Questions

What are the specific changes to the online consumer panel program?

Driscoll's Consumer Advisory Panel program is switching from a coupon-based reward system to a point-based system. With each survey completed you will earn 25 points. Accumulated survey points can be exchanged for a Reward Link where you will be able to redeem e-gift cards from a selection of popular retailers. When you have accumulated enough points, an additional question will be presented at the end of the survey asking if you would like to exchange your points for a Reward Link. This question will be present for every survey so long as your survey point balance does not drop below exchange threshold.

When will these changes take effect?

These changes will take effect on Monday, November 4, 2019. Please note that, due to maintenance, access to the survey portal will be temporarily unavailable between Thursday, October 31, 2019 through Sunday, November 3, 2019.

Are there any changes to how many surveys I can complete per day?

At this time, consumers can complete up to 2 surveys per day.

What is Reward Link?

Reward Link is an e-gift card marketplace provided by Tango Card. You can accumulate survey points through the Driscoll's Consumer Advisory Panel program by providing feedback on the berries you purchased. The point balance you accumulate can be exchanged for Reward Links of predetermined dollar denominations. You can then use your Reward Links to redeem e-gift cards from a selection of popular retail brands.

When can I redeem my survey point balance for a Reward Link?

Once you've reached 200 points, you will be given the option to redeem your balance for a $2.00 Reward Link to apply towards e-gift cards from retailers of your choosing. You may also continue to build your survey point balance to exchange for higher dollar amount Reward Links. 
Note: redemption thresholds for e-gift cards vary by retailer (some retailers allow for $2.00 balance while others will require a higher balance). You can view the requirements within the reward catalog beneath each retailers' gift card. You can view the full card catalog, but note that not all of the cards displayed are part of the Driscoll's offering.       

What are the minimum amounts needed to redeem my survey point balance?

Current survey point redemption threshold is set for $2 Reward Link for 200 points (8 survey equivalent), $5 Reward Link for 500 points (20 survey equivalent), and $10 Reward Link for 1,000 (40 survey equivalent). Opportunity to exchange survey points will display if your account balance meets minimum threshold requirement.

How can I check my survey point balance?

There are three places you can see your survey point balance: 
1. Current balance is displayed when you sign in to begin a new survey.  
2. Each survey you complete will end on a final screen showing your new point balance. 
3. After a survey is completed, you will receive an email with your updated point balance.

In the survey I said I want to continue to accumulate but changed my mind. Can I still exchange my points for a Reward Link?

You can only exchange your survey point balance at the end of a survey. If you skipped the option to exchange, then you will need to complete another survey for the option to appear again.

Will my survey point balance roll over at the end of the year?

Yes, your survey point balance will roll over and continue to accumulate until you decide to exchange it for Reward Links.

How do I use my Reward Link?

When you select to exchange your accumulated survey point balance for a Reward Link, an email with a unique URL link will be sent to you from Tango Card. The link will take you to a catalog of e-gift cards for you to spend your Reward Link balance on. You can spend your balance on a single retailer or choose a combination of e-gift cards from different retailers. Any unspent Reward Link balance can be returned to at a later date through the unique URL link.

Is there a maximum limit on my Reward Link funds?

The maximum Reward Link denomination is $10.

How do I navigate to my Reward Link account?

There is not an account management system for your Reward Links at this time. However, you can view your remaining balance for each of your Reward Links through the unique URL links located within the email sent to you.

Can I combine my Reward Links?

There is no option to combine Reward Link balances at this time. If you selected to exchange your survey points for a Reward Link, the points are deducted from your accumulated survey point balance and applied toward a unique Reward Link. If you have multiple Reward Links, you cannot combine the individual link balances. Purchases for e-gift cards are handled separately with each Reward Link. To purchase e-gift cards of larger denominations from specific retailers, you must exchange your survey points for a Reward Link of equal or greater dollar value than the desired e-gift card denomination.
