Hi,

Can anyone confirm that Virgin Atlantic miles are NOT IHG Elite Qualifying anymore? Is Hertz still EQ, though?

Thank you in advance

While past performance doesn't guarantee future results, I've uneventfully double-dipped in different RN survey programs for BA, United, Jet Blue, IHG, and Alaska without any issues.

Haven't heard from e-Rewards yet, but I just got kicked out of a survey on Hilton.com because I'd already taken it using another ID (or similar words to that effect)- I guess they have a way of making sure you don't take a survey through Hilton.com AND e-Rewards. Fine with me. Bonus points for signing up, plus a few "thanks for trying" points have already posted. Nice way to get more Hilton points.

Probably either identification of your IP or (less likely) a persistent cookie that both sites can read. If you have access to another computer (e.g., work or tablet) you might want to segregate and access one site exclusively from one device and the other site exclusively from the other.

I did read online that VA miles are no longer EQ.

yougov.com time-waster

A survey from yougov.com seemed to be a time-waster. I was screened out after correctly answering my age. The survey already had my date of birth, as it was the first question. If age was the real determinant, it could have screened me out right after the first screen.

Does anyone know what will happen to the Avios.com sponsored accounts (where the only redemption option is Avios)? The Avios program shuts down next week. I had a redemption this week and the Avios "automagically" turned up on my BA account, without any intervention from me.

Hertz points earned through E-rewards are not elite qualifying.

I've noticed that e-rewards now do lots of screening for surveys before they let you into a survey. In the past you could enter more surveys and get a partial reward for not qualifying. They've reduced this chance to get something for answering any questions by having this unrewarded screening. I also think they've reduced the incentive/time ratio. Bleeders...

I regularly completed E-reward surveys and redeemed AA miles, with no problem. A few months ago I attempted a redemption, but the miles never posted to my AAdvantage account. I didn't attempt to contact anyone but have decided to cease completing surveys.

Agree. It may take them sometime to reply your emails, including those on missing credit or being thrown out after 4/5 completion of a survey, they would post courtesy credits. But if you do not let them know, just how they would be aware of the problems?

We use the program primarily because it is handy to extend the loyalty program's expiration date. Just redeemed $25 in husband's account to his United account because his United account is set to expire 11/30/18. I did not know now the UA redemption is instant. Nor I was aware that now eReward requires 2ndary authentication via phone. At least it allows a landline voice call, thank goodness.

I think that the secondary authentication is just a one-time thing, and subsequent redemptions won't require it. But I'm not sure. (It's been a while since I last redeemed, so I could be mistaken.)

Hi all,

I'm looking to sign up to E-Rewards to boost my AccorHotels LeClub points. Ideally, however, I'd like to sign up through a partner that allows me to redeem points for a wide range of partners, and not just one.

The LINK on the AccorHotels website has not allowed signups for at least 18 months, and instead directs users to a page to 'learn more' about E-Rewards.

Previously, I had signed up through Virgin Australia, however this only allowed me to redeem for VA, and no other partners, so I got the E-Rewards team to close this account, so I could try to find another partner in which to sign up that allows me to earn LeClub points.

Is anyone able to point me in the right direction for a partner that allows redemption for LeClub points, and ideally allows redemption on a range of partners, including Virgin Australia?

I'm based in Australia, if that information is pertinent.

Cheers,

Yes, that's happening to me a lot, too and it started just recently. I can understand why replying in the negative to "Do you plan to purchase a new car in the next 12 months?" will make me ineligible for a survey of new car buyers, but when I answer "Yes" to "Have you taken an international flight in the last 3 months?" and it just leads to more questions with no rewards, I wonder why they're collecting all this free data.

I've been on e-Rewards long enough to remember when you got 25 cents or 50 cents for answering the non-survey profile questions.
