Dear Brother / Sister,
A person who does not offer prayers will get reward from good deeds that he/she does. The existence of a sin is not an obstacle to other thawabs (rewards). The punishment of not offering prayers is different and the thawab of other deeds is different. Thawabs and sins are evaluated discretely.
A person who does not perform prayers get the thawab of the sadaqa (alms) that he gives even if he commits major sins. What is important is to have belief. It is possible that Allah will give salvation to the person for the deed, a goodness which is thought to be small; and due to that deed, he may start performing prayers.
No one knows where the consent and wrath of Allah is hidden. Thus, it is necessary not to underestimate or rely upon any deed.
