This batch of 500 is taking a loooong time. Was about 300 at end of last quarter and now only just over 400. I'll probably give up once I get it up to 500. Just not worth the effort to keep going.

I've had miles transfered only once since January. It's almost October and I'm just around the 300 mark...

The surveys are so quick and simple though that it isn't a waste of time like e-rewards.

To get more e-miles offers/surveys make sure you update your profile questions every few months...they change and add radio buttons without notification.

I got 500 miles for Q2 and for Q3 I may get 500 or 1,000 miles depending when 200 miles from Adobe post to my e-Miles account.

I'm going to guess Q4 is going to have a lot of opportunities, what with the holidays and all.

I'm a relative newbie at e-miles, and my current balance is at 685. When I first joined, there were all kinds of balance-building bonus offers, but of course, now they just trickle in slowly....

So, if I understand correctly, at the end of this quarter, 500 of my miles will be automatically transferred to the airline I've chosen, correct?

No, a MINIMUM of 500 miles will be transfered. For example, if your balance was 499, NO miles would be transfered; they'd be rolled over to the new quarter. Since your current balance is 685, all 685 miles will be deposited

Actually 500 miles will be transfered, the remaining 185 will be left in e-miles to start your next quarter. Miles are transfered in blocks of 500.
