For DQ purposes, it's hard to beat 5 DQs at 10 Jet Blue points each at Points for Surveys.

I do like Club Opinions for return rate since I actually like Accor's Ibis/Novotel sorts of properties and I've got a European trip planned next year where I can use the vouchers.

I wish it was 5 completed surveys for each SSI program per day instead of five completions across all their programs because I'd like to do a Jet Blue/Accor/United rotation with them.

But overall, e-Rewards is, IMO, one of the better options for my needs- can typically get three surveys a day from them and the return can be good if you know how to pick the 'right' program redemptions.

For cash/paypal, I like Prize Rebel- do pretty well with the 'Your Surveys' when husband inssits on watching Something Awful on the tv.

Another question about Hertz redemptions. I realize you cannot redeem more than quarterly, but what if I have two separate e-rewards accounts? Has anyone tried getting around this constraint by using e-rewards accounts with Hertz or any other reward member that has a limit on the number of redemptions?

Which redemptions - apart from United - are posting instantly?

I've cashed out a lot of points this month and they've all posted.

I didn't check my Hilton account until about five days after that redemption but they were there and it's possible it was instant.

I did the $25 Best Buy gift card and had that card emailed to me within 5 minutes.

I did the $50 Starbucks redemption and had that card immediately.

For me, Hilton redemption used to be immediate. Now, it takes about a day.

IHG appears in my account the following Tuesday morning after redemption as others have also said, even if I've redeemed fairly late on Monday night. So that one's apparently a weekly sweep and dump.

Anyone know the schedule for Accor points posting?

it will recognize your Hertz number and not work.

I'm heading towards three weeks' wait for my Iberia avios now. And the worst thing is that it's still two weeks before E-Rewards will chase it up.

Is everyone else still in the same boat, waiting for avios awards?

I See, just asked as my goal is spire.

Yes, neither avios.com nor Iberia posted yet.

The IHG points posted on the Monday/Tuesday overnight as they typically do.

The 25K of bonus points I got as a choice benefit for going over the Spire threshold posted immediately upon selection

4 paid nights to Spire because of e-Rewards, baby!

Don't know how long the EQ thing will last but I'm glad to ride it while it does.
