What is e-Rewards?
If you have never heard of e-Rewards, it is an online market research company that offers incentives in return for taking surveys. If you keep your profile updated, you will only be sent surveys about topics that interest you and suit your lifestyle.
After your general ‘600 Avios for completing one survey’ sign up bonus, you earn Opinion Points for each future survey you complete. When you reach certain point levels, you can redeem your Opinion Points for more Avios.
How do you join e-Rewards?
Joining e-Rewards is very straightforward, and exclusively available to all British Airways Executive Club members.
Simply visit the British Airways e-Rewards site here and fill out your details. You must be a UK resident, over the age of 16 years and have a BA Executive Club account to join.
Once you’ve created your account you can update it with more details about your lifestyle in order to receive personalised surveys which match your interests.
‘only share your responses with the survey sponsor and you’ll have complete control over what information you share from your account. […] Any information you provide will be strictly used for research purposes only and is kept completely anonymous.‘
How to fill out surveys
You will receive emails with links to surveys you qualify for, based on your interests. You can also log into your account and browse available surveys. The more information e-Rewards has about you, the more surveys you will be able to take.
Some surveys have a small pre-qualification section, where the first few questions are used to check more closely whether you are the right sort of person that the survey sponsor is looking for. You may be told after a few minutes that you do not qualify. If this happens, you might want to look at your profile and see if you can add some information to help e-Rewards target you more closely.
For longer surveys, where the pre-qualification stage takes a little longer, you will receive a small amount of points if you do not qualify to take the full survey.
Surveys usually take around 15 minutes, and you will see an estimate of how long a survey takes before you start filling it out. It can work well if you have ‘dead time’ whilst commuting, or if you want to multi-task whilst watching TV!
How to earn Avios with e-Rewards
You will receive 600 Avios after completing your first survey. After that you will be earning ‘Opinion Points’ which can be redeemed for Avios. The minimum transfer is 1,200 Opinion Points for 250 Avios, although the transfer rate improves if you convert in larger quantities.
The table below shows you how many Opinion Points are needed to earn different amounts of Avios.
It can take up to 35 days for your redeemed Avios to appear in your British Airways Executive Club account.
600 Avios for completing one e-Rewards survey is a decent reward for signing up and giving their surveys a go.
You may or may not decide that, long term, the Avios rewards are worth your time. e-Rewards does have a lot of loyal members and, if you find yourself with chunks of dead time, such as sitting on the train in the morning, feeding the baby at night or during your lunch break, it might work for you too.
