Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

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

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

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 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.

    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.

  • Roger Wilco says:

    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.

  • Anna says:

    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…
