joined e-rewards last week, still no emails

I joined e-rewards a week ago but still haven't received any emails for "dollars." Is this normal? I signed up for 7+ emails per week, and even tried resubmitting my email address. I even signed up for plenty of interests in the initial survey.

I can earn "dollars" with the earn now option, I'm just not getting any emails.

I have found that I will get flooded with emails and then get none for weeks at a time. It all just a matter of your interests and demographics matching up with their survey request.

My experiences have been similar. I've received 3-4 survey requests in a day, but have had weeks where I haven't received any emails from them. Have patience, and if nothing else, you can use the "Earn Now" option to start working on your balance.

I've also received my emails in bunches. Not much in the past few weeks -- sadly, I'm trying to hit the $100 mark but I'm seem stuck at around $90. Hopefully something will come up soon.

Okay, thanks. I was getting worried since it sounded like (by reading other posts) people have more e-rewards dollars than they can spend. I assumed this meant they were being flooded with emails, but I guess what it really means is that there aren't enough redemption options!!

That's basically it. I only use the Hilton option, and even using my rewards as much as possible, I still normally have a balance of $50-$75.

Just found these posts and was relieved to find I wasn't the only one. Not a new e-rewards user but am stuck at around $88, with no new emails for weeks, when I want to redeem a $100 reward.

I also have received many at one time, but in the past few weeks, I am lucky to have received 2 or 3.

You are not the only one!

My family of 4 had a flood of them about a month ago. Not a single one has come in during the last 2-3 weeks. I don't think we have ever gone this long without one.

Somebody mentioned this also, but I've noticed since the change in the AA awards, I haven't been getting as many emails. I'm shooting for the $50 level so I can cash out.... not worth it to shoot for $100, since the prorated amount is the same.

Thinking about it, I haven't seen one from them in a while either.

Same here with a flood for a couple of weeks for my family of 2. And nothing for the last 2-3 weeks. It sounds like several people haven't been getting any lately. Anyone here getting lots still?

Great, just when I am shooting for $100 so I can cash out, I get stuck around $84. Is this maybe a scam what with the recent change on redemptions, now they make it impossible to earn more?

I didn't get any for a few days- just got 2 yesterday including one where I passed the screening for an $8 survey.

Another question, though. The $8 will post in a couple of weeks. I seem to have lots of $$ in the pipeline. One of those items just posted a couple of days ago but I think others are late. I never kept track of what should be posted. One insurance quote won't post the $$ to my account for 4-6 weeks. Is e-Rewards pretty reliable about posting these amounts after the promised time?
