I did a conversion to Iberia on 4th October. In the confirmation email I just noticed that it stated 'Your Iberia Plus account will be credited with 3000 Avios within 6-8 weeks.'

I was under the impression Iberia conversions didn't take long. Is that wildly off or do I really have that long to wait?

Iberia avios usually post the next Tuesday morning after redemption. If they don't, it may be a glitch (they happen a bit more than with other programs) and still post in a few weeks.

Thank you. I redeemed last Tuesday so will keep an eye out tomorrow!

The '6-8 weeks' seems pretty boilerplate for all the awards. The majority of them post a lot sooner than that.

Has anyone tried a Hertz redemption beyond the one per quarter that is allowed? What would happen if I tried to redeem for another Hertz award beyond the one allowed? They will block it?

No sign yet, so looks like I am in for a long wait! If avios.com awards are also delayed, maybe they have a bit of a backlog...

My $120 purchase of Hertz points that I made on e-Rewards on 6 Oct 2016 finally posted on Hertz.com today, 13 October 2016. Since that is exactly one week after ChinaShrek's points posted, perhaps it is something that happens once a week, on Thursdays.

The e-rewards system will not allow it to go through and will give you a message saying you already redeemed this quarter.

It will show an error message. However, you can probably open a Hertz account for your wife/husband and send more points from another e-rewards account there. Then you can transfer the points into one place by calling Hertz, apparently.

E-Rewards are paying LESS than what's advertised

Did a survey for Uber. They promised $10.00. Got $5.00
Did a survey for TD Bank. They promised $5.00. Got $3.00.
Did a survey for Wegman's. They promised $6.25. Got $3.25

Someone from the EPA is inside E-Rewards, I think. Drill, Baby, Drill!

Oddly, I had one go in my favor earlier today- it said $2.50 but seemed a bit longish for that and posted at $4.00. My guess is that it sometimes DQs you right off the bat and instead of sending you back to the 'do you want to try again?' or the 'no more surveys' message, it instantly redirects to a different survey in the pool that may or may not match he value of the first screen. I also get some surveys where the topic on the first screen (automobile, personal finance, etc.) doesn't necessarily match the topic I get in the survey, even though they try to keep the topics pretty generic.

Survey expired half way through it

In the last two weeks I have noticed that after answering several questions I will get a "sorry this survey has expired." It does not give partial credit. Yesterday I was online when a survey came in, started it, answered a dozen or so questions then got the "expired" screen. Fishy as always.

email the customer support - they have been quite good to keep you whole in the few incidents I complained about this year. Had one a few days ago, shown 75% complete after 16 min, on a 20 min survey (Beverage). Then the next screen threw me out as not eligible. Emailed the complain immediately. They credited the account the next day with a reply - the system gave $0.25 on the $5 survey and they posted $4.75 manually.

I'm on my third contact with them for one I completed a month ago - and when it got to the last page it said there was an error....two replies so far that have absolutely nothing to do with what happened...normally I have had good luck with them - after follow up.
