Same here. Very frustrating. The problem child is a $4.75 entertainment survey from ssisurveys.com

Mine is a one about transportation. It's affecting e-rewards, miles for opinions and The terminal opinion. It keeps going back and won't let me do another survey. Grrrr

Seems to be a very widespread problem - and at a bad time (long weekend, when a lot of people have extra time). It's been on and off for me for a day and a half but I just had a good session of surveys so maybe it's finally clearing.

Same problem here. Business & Employment, 275 points, 10 minutes. Keeps pointing me to this survey. Hopefully dropped off the list by tomorrow.

Let's see Tuesday morning if they post normally.

EDITed to add - it seems that it doesn't work on all accounts... bug or feature, who knows?
Yes, you can select as many redemptions as you like from the drop down section. Problem is, a while ago EREWARDS starting cancelling accounts with to many points in so intend to cash out as quickly as possible.
I can confirm the extra redemptions are not working on a 2nd account of mine, tried it on Virgin & Hilton etc. So appears only works on BA Avios accounts only.

Not even on all BA accounts. On one account, no problem selecting 2x2000 Avios (tomorrow we'll see if they post) while on another no redemption possible at all with the 30 days period. Actually I tried to redeem some residual points on the first account a day later and after an SMS check* it came up against the usual warning, that I have already redeemed within the period.

So maybe a bug and not a feature?

* sigh - again, for chrissakes

I was able to do one or two this morning, but kept getting taken back to another problem child. Finally just let the site percolate for a while, and by 2:30pm it appears that the broken survey is gone and I have been able to complete several new ones...including one that had the same topic and dollar value as one that had given me problems earlier.
EDITED TO ADD: I take it back, a new problem survey has arisen from the ashes. Business & Employment for $3.50, Alex. I think I'm going to let it all rest until tomorrow.
EDITED TO ADD 2: Waited overnight, now all of the problem surveys are gone, and was able to attempt all surveys in my dashboard. That was a very annoying glitch this past weekend.

Now it’s Tuesday but no Avios showing. I have a bad feeling about this...

4k Avios posted, 1 day later than usual, so all's good.

Is there a successful method of getting through the multiple choice questionnaires anyone has discovered on here like a pattern? I only have about a 20% success rate of getting through these questionnaires, If I fail on one account I try a different tactic on the 2nd but this doesn't work that often also.

Are you talking about the screening questions, i.e. "What is your marital status?" or "What is your age range?" that determine whether or not you can proceed to the actual survey? FWIW, I always answer those honestly and uniformly from survey to survey. I seem to remember some people reporting being locked out in the past because their answers were determined to be inconsistent. If you try to game the system, you do it at your own risk. And as each survey is different, the cohorts that they want for one survey may be very different for another.

Not sure if your 20% success rate is all that low, especially if you're new to e-rewards. I have the impression that the more surveys you have completed over a decent period of time, the better they can theoretically tailor surveys to you. I've been doing it for years, just took a look at my last few days, and it looks like about 40% of my surveys returned more than 25 cents. Twenty-five cents is typically the reward for an incomplete survey. However, some incomplete surveys reward higher than 25 cents, so my apparent 40% completion rate might be an overstatement. Just saying that if you think you're going to get up to something like 50% completion or higher, you're probably going to be disappointed.

Hi,
It's the multi-choice initial questionnaires I'm receiving in the last few days, these are the ones your faced with when you click on a survey link in your account. I tend to get a multi choice of around 10-20 selections on these recently. If I check say 4-5 statements it seems to mostly screen me out. I sometimes just click the bottom box to answer "no to all" and this sometimes continues on to an actual survey.
I was wondering if anybody had a successful strategy they use faced with these multi choice initial survey qualifiers for getting through them succesfully?
