How to Earn Points and Get Rewarded with Surf

Get rewarded for doing nothing. This is a sentence that most everyone would be at least a little skeptical of - for good reason. It’s true most of the time when people tell you can get rewarded for free, it usually means you have to watch a ridiculous number of ads or hand over some uber personal information on some surveys. Lucky for you, Surf rewards you for your data without all the ads or forfeiting of personal information.

The whole idea behind Surf’s name is that all you need to do to get rewarded is by continuing to SURF the web the way you always have done (pretty good, eh?). Surf is an extension that was made to make sure that once you download it, you really don’t have to do anything else. Surf does all the work for you, tracking your browsing history without collecting any personal information! So basically what we’re saying is that Surf allows you to get rewarded for the data you choose to share

How to Download the Extension

Surf is here for you to earn rewards but how do you actually get started? This first step to getting rewards for your data is downloading the Surf extension. The Surf extension is available for the following browsers: Safari, Chrome, Opera and Firefox. However, it is currently only available in Canada and the USA (with more regions to come soon). Once you have downloaded the extension you can get started! After downloading the Surf browser extension, you will be prompted to create an account, which will require a few basic account creation questions. No personal information is required though! Once you have finished setting up your account, you will be given your first 750 points. For free! After this step, you’re done. You can then start browsing like normal and be rewarded for it. We do, however, recommend pinning the extension to your browser, that way you can easily access your point counter and our reward marketplace!

How to Earn Points 

The main way to earn points through Surf is to browse the web, while Surf works in the background. Based on your browsing habits and the unique URLs you are visiting, you can earn up to 500-1200 points a month. The second way to earn points though is through referrals (it’s also the fastest 😉). You can refer Surf to a friend with a unique link generated for you in the profile & more section. These referral links can be sent out to your friends, family, and whoever else you think would be interested in being rewarded for doing practically nothing. For ever referral, you and the referee both receive 2,000 points each!

How to Redeem Rewards 

The points you are earning through the extension can be used to redeem Surf rewards (don’t worry we wouldn’t just leave you hanging). Lots of rewards even start at 500 points, which can be redeemed immediately with the 750 points you earned from creating an account. Brand rewards in our marketplace vary from health and beauty and fashion to sports and technology. To redeem these rewards, first go to the rewards website and choose the reward you’d like to redeem. A confirmation box will pop up, and once you confirm your email, your rewards code will be sent within 3-5 business days. You can then use this code on the rewards partner’s website. This video explains the process as well. If you ever have difficulty with redeeming your rewards or have not received your code in your email, please email our customer service team at to be helped further.

The goal of Surf is for consumers to take back control of their data in some way. This is why we work hard to make sure that every part of your Surf experience is as simple as possible. You can start earning points today by downloading the Surf extension - it’s quick and easy! Start racking up points now to begin redeeming sweet rewards. So it is that easy - join Surf and start getting rewarded for doing nothing.
