Higher-than-usual 800 Avios bonus for signing up with e-Rewards

I am not a big fan of earning Avios or indeed any loyalty points via e-Rewards.  That said, when I wrote this article four years ago about the ‘points for questionnaires’ company, I got a mini-backlash from people who were doing quite nicely out it.

e-Rewards

In general, with most loyalty partners, you cannot join e-Rewards at will. You had to wait to be invited by a sponsoring hotel or airline.

The avios.com and British Airways Executive Club versions, on the other hand, are available for anyone to sign up.

And, until 31st March, avios.com is offering 800 Avios points for joining and completing just one survey.  This is an admittedly modest increase on the usual bonus of 750 Avios.

If you join via British Airways Executive Club, the bonus is just 750 Avios.

The avios.com sign-up page is here.

The ba.com sign-up page is here (scroll down to the e-rewards box)

In theory you could sign up for both if you used a different email address …..

The company is also an Iberia Plus partner, but that version remains ‘invitation only’.

Long-term, I am not a fan of e-Rewards. I think that it requires more effort than it is worth. However, 750 or 800 Avios for completing one survey is an option too good to miss.

    • Saw this on OMAAT yesterday, seems totally bonkers – I can see the logic in separating some of the OW status levels but to get up to that number of boarding groups is taking the proverbial!

  2. a bit OT
    Has anyone managed to merge HHonors account in the same name please?

    • There used to be an option on the HH website which allowed you to do this – I always thought it was an odd feature to publicise but it was there.

      • Sorry, I meant managed to make that facility work. I have done it on two accounts and nothing has happened. I will try chat.

  3. I have given it a go and already had the frozen screen towards the end of a survey and twice been told that they have reached the number of people required for the survey despite answering many pages of questions on the subject before hand !
    I agree that if you are time rich it probably works for you . For me with a busy lifestyle and job I would rather earn by other means !!

    It doesn’t really take that much time to do a questionnaire or two, lots pay out 500 e-Rewards and for a couple of hours a month, you can bank a fair amount. I recently cashed out 7,000 Honors and a £20 Amazon gift card for very little work over the past month.

    I always try to fail these surveys to get the minimum points then move on in the minimum time.

    IIRC it’s the Avios equivalent which is the worst and will literally keep you going for 20 mins before saying “we’ve had enough from your group”. Absolutely NEVER bother with the Avios ones.

    Steady flow of 2000 Avios/month (maximum rate) with minimal effort – via the avios.com signup. Only redemption partner is Avios.com, which is a big drawback.

  7. I got an email today saying I have got the 800 avios bonus, even though I haven’t finished a survey yet! Just had to log into my account to get them. Maybe they were reading this thread…
