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.
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 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.
