Purple Patch Rewards System

Certain tasks that require completion (ie. Surveys and in depth discussions/activities) will require more effort and engagement and for those a reward will be provided to all participants. For these tasks, rewards will be stated at the beginning of the activity.

Rewards will be sent monthly to your wallet, which will accumulate over time. The process of redeeming from your Rewards Wallet is as follows.

  • You will receive an email from ‘RewardsWallet’ stating that you have been paid by PurplePatch. There is no need to create an account, it is connected to your PurplePatch email. Follow the link to see your monthly total.
  • You can choose the value of the gift card you want to redeem by clicking the amount on the screen (If your total is under $5 you will have to wait to earn more rewards next month as minimum redemption is $5). Any amount you don’t use will be carried over and remain in your account.
  • Once you have redeemed your money you will be able to select your voucher from a range of different retailers (retailers vary depending on the amount cashed out)
  • Your unique code for your voucher will be sent to your email address. Simply print it off and redeem it in store

Cash Prizes

As part of your participation in PurplePatch you will accumulate points for every task you do. These points will then factor in to your chance of being selected for up to $3,000 worth of prizes each month.
Eligibility for prizes will be based on frequency of participation, quality and uniqueness of response.
You will be eligible for a prize for participating in at least one task in the applicable month. And, the more times you participate, the more points you accumulate and the bigger prize available to you (see breakdown below).

  • PurplePatch ‘Power Player’ – in the top 10% of points accumulated; eligible for up to $2000 prize each month you qualify as a Power Player
  • PurplePatch ‘Player’ – in the mid 70% of points accumulated; eligible for up to $750 prize each month you qualify as a Player
  • PurplePatch ‘Participator’ – in the bottom 20% of points accumulated; eligible for up to $250 prize each month you qualify as a Participator

Once each person is allocated points, the successful winner will be based on quality and uniqueness of response as decided by Lewers Research (owner of PurplePatch). So, we’re looking for quality and quantity of response.
You will be provided an ongoing tally of points accumulated for these prizes.
Winners will be selected the first day of the next month and be notified by email and in the news section on PurplePatch no later than 10 working days after winners are selected. Prizes will be paid in Australian Dollars through a method decided by Lewers Research.

Additional Conditions for Prize Selection

Any additional costs not expressly stated, but which may be incurred in acceptance and use of a prize, are the responsibility of the winner.

No compensation will be payable if a winner is unable to take any element of a prize as stated, or does not satisfy any conditions of use for any element of the prize (including conditions imposed by supplier requirements), for whatever reason. Any part of a prize that is not taken for any reason is forfeited and no compensation will be provided.

If a prize (or part of a prize) is unavailable for any reason, the Promoter may, in its absolute discretion, substitute alternative goods or services of equal or higher value. The Promoter accepts no other liability or responsibility for any loss incurred by a winner or any other party if a prize (or part of prize) is unavailable for any reason.

Other than as expressly stated in these conditions, a prize is non-transferable, non-refundable, non-exchangeable, non-replaceable, and non-redeemable for another prize, except at the Promoter’s discretion.


The prize(s) will only be awarded following any winner validation and verification that the Promoter requires in its sole discretion.

If: (i) a prize is not claimed by a winner or the Promoter has been unable (despite reasonable efforts) to successfully contact the winner; or (ii) a winner is determined by the Promoter to be ineligible to win a prize in accordance with these conditions, the relevant prize will be forfeited and instead awarded another randomly selected Eligible Entrant. If required selection will take place at the same time and place as the original selection. That process will be repeated if required.

If for any reason this Competition is not capable of running as planned, or is interfered with or disrupted in any way (including by vandalism, power failures, natural disasters, acts of God, weather event, civil unrest, strikes, computer bugs or viruses, tampering or technical failures), the Promoter reserves the right to cancel, terminate, modify or suspend the Competition, or invalidate any affected entries.

The Promoter assumes no responsibility for: (i) any error, omission, interruption, or delay in the operation or transmission of any communication sent to (or by) the Promoter or any entrant whether caused by problems with communication networks or lines, computer systems, software or internet service providers, congestion on any carrier network or otherwise; (ii) any theft, destruction or unauthorised access to, or alteration of such communications; (iii) any problem with, or technical malfunction of, any computer system or other equipment used for the conduct of the Competition; (iv) any incorrect or incomplete information which may be communicated in the course of the administering this Competition (whether as a result of one of the foregoing causes or otherwise); or (v) any delay in delivery (when not directly caused by the Promoter or its supplier), or failure of safe delivery of a prize.

All of the Promoter’s decisions in relation to all aspects of this Competition are final and no correspondence will be entered into. Failure by the Promoter to enforce any of its rights at any stage does not constitute a waiver of those rights.

A winner accepts a prize at their own risk. Any tax liability arising as a result of accepting a prize is the responsibility of the winner. Independent financial advice should be sought.

To the full extent permitted by law, the Promoter, its associated companies and agencies and any of their personnel (the “Relevant Parties”) exclude all liability for any loss (including any damage, claim, injury, cost or expense) which is suffered or incurred by any Eligible Entrant in connection with the Competition or a prize, including without limitation: (i) any indirect, special, economic or consequential loss; (ii) any loss arising from the negligence of a Relevant Party; and (iii) any liability for personal injury or death. To the extent that such liability cannot be excluded by law, it is limited to the minimum allowable by law.
