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 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!

Earn Avios with ERewards

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.

    Would love to know of other eRewards links. Eg The Virgin Atlantic one which gives you a more varied list of rewards.

    • thomas says:

      the nectar one too, 1000 points is worth £5.
      earn around £45-50 each month.

      • Mr(s) Entitled says:

        How many surveys a month do you complete for that return?

        • AJA says:

          A lot of surveys! It takes me the best part of 2 months to get enough to redeem for 2,000 Avios. That said it’s a reasonable return for attempting to complete them. I got 18,000 Avios last year completing them. At least you do get 25 points for most of the surveys you get screened out of unlike Rewardsforthoughts which I no longer complete as they stopped sending any surveys back in May. I probably get screened out 7 of every 10 surveys I attempt.

  • Steve says:

    I used to do a lot of these and did quite well out of them. But I stopped about six months ago after it deteriorated significantly. It became normal to spend 15 minutes completing a very detailed and tedious survey, only to be told that you don’t qualify. Or you’d get right to the end of the survey and then it would crash and you don’t get the points. No doubt they managed to keep the data though. It feels like it has become a bit of a scam.

    • ChrisC says:

      I complained a couple of times about the number of the filtering questions that were being asked before being told I didn’t qualify especially when some of those questions were quite detailed about the topic.

      And I wish with all these surveys that they just had one page of the demographics questions rather than enter and click and rinse and repeat.

      • John says:

        Repeat questions are a security check to reduce the chance of people not answering properly

    • BJ says:

      I thought that was 6 years ago, not 6 months. I dread to think of the state of this scheme now if it has recently deteriorated yet again for the nth time.

    • Lady London says:

      it is a scam. they lie about not keeping the data. I caught one of the big survey companies redhanded at this and they had no explanation how they had data I had only provided deep in one survey (incredibly lengthy) that it felt was about near its end then suddenly ‘rejected’ for.

      I am sure some surveys are just intended to get the answers to 1 or 2 questions – such as what % of people in an age bad of whst gender are likely to have used a parricular product type – but they dont want to pay.

      • BJ says:

        It’s all a pity because in the early days it was a good and easy way to add thousands of extra points or miles. Then they started their nonsense, and I’m sure they have paid for it too with mostly meaningless responses.

  • Doug M says:

    Fill in survey, once they have a lot of data report that you don’t meet criteria and to try another survey. No thanks.

    • Travel Strong says:

      +1. I’ve tried to sign up a few times in the past and wasted hours to be told I do not meet the criteria… for every single survey. Never again.

    • Lady London says:

      +1. Despite their numerous vehement denials that’s the game.

  • Nori says:

    Did some e-rewards surveys a few years back and quickly gave up. Most of the times I was filling in lengthly “filtering” surveys with nothing in return.

    • _nate says:

      I cannot agree more, unfortunately. The filtering questions have become absurd. I also found it all but impossible to unsubscribe.

      Used to be just about worth it. Definitely not now. Try to actually answer a survey to get the bonus and you will get the idea.

      • Lady London says:

        re impossible to unsubscribe I finally got my last survey company to stop emailing me, after numerous requests, by formally emailing them that henceforth my handling charge for receiving any emaik from them would be £5.

        They responded that it would be up to [loads of] weeks before they could stop. Told them they’d had that time on the previous requests and they had 48 hours (I had given them 14 days mentioning the previous requests when I notified them of the upcoming £5 handling charge) to stop and every email received after 48 hours would attract the handling charge which would be pursued in court if necessary.

        Emails immediately, and finally, stopped.

        • Secret Squirrel says:

          Cancel Membership option in your account, instant email to confirm and no more survey invitations sent to registered email address.

          • Lady London says:

            doesnt work with all survey co’s. the ones I had difficulty with provided unsubscribe links on emails that either did not ever work or even if the button to unsubscribe did appear to accept the unsubscribe the emails werent stopping after months.

        • John T says:

          Just block the sender in your email account??

          • _nate says:

            I think you’re missing the point…

            I tried through various means to stop the emails. All the mechanisms that should have worked did not.

            I did indeed block them, in the end, so I presume they are still emailing me. I don’t think this is a successful result at the end of the day.

    A small self-contradiction there. 🙂

  • Andy S says:

    I’ve been earning 2000 avios per month for about the last year from E-Rewards.

    The Likes of Sky and BT seem to be major clients of E-Rewards.

  • Keith C says:

    E-rewards are a waste of time. Look at the reviews on Trustpilot. Not only do they have a habit of cancelling accounts for apparently no reason and voiding any earnings, but the rewards are now around half of what they were a year ago. If anyone is seriously thinking of going doing this route, joining a more reputable survey site which doesn’t offer such pitiful earning rates and then buying Avios with cash would be a far better choice.

  • Lady London says:

    Having said all the above, if you havent done surveys before with e-rewards go for it and hoover up the 600 avios and help HfP out. Usually there’s an early ‘honeymoon period’ when they will give you a few genuine surveys that pay out without the tricks.

    As soon as you hit a day when you try 4 surveys and are rejected, check you’ve had your 600 avios and bail out.

    • Graeme says:

      My sister-in-law is on over a dozen rejections for even beginning a survey today.

      It’s become completely pointless.

      • Graeme says:

        It took her over twenty attempts to finally get into and complete a survey (with one rejection mid-survey) – and she knows how to answer these things.

        She’ll be closing her account when the 600 Avios appear, sadly – as will the old accounts of the rest of the family.

        • Lady London says:

          I was blissfully with Pinecone for a while. Their promise was you wouldnt get screened out of any survey you were invited to. Your demographics were pre-screened so you never got an invitation you hadn’t been pre-screened for. Rewards were OK. It worked and a number of surveys were really interesting. There were rarely technical issues. Full points were awarded by my named account manager when they rarely occurred.

          Then those things started changing. My account manager admitted Pinecone had been acquired. From the creeping change and then avalanche back to lying data-hoovering screenouts, it became clear our email addresses were being flogged everywhere. So I dumped them. They still had enough class that they stopped sendnf invites immediately. But sad to see them go.

        • _nate says:

          It is the rejections mid-survey that hurt most.
