Travel Hacking - Tip #10 – E-Rewards

e-Rewards is a rewards program that gives money (sort of) for taking online surveys.  You sign up by invitation only thru a partner / sponsor.  If you have signed up for e-mails with your frequent flier account there is a good chance there is already an invitation in your inbox already.  Here is an invitation for e-rewards with a bonus 250 US Airways Dividend Miles if you complete just one survey - Update: Above link not working  but stay tuned I'll get you another :-( 

ok - got some more links thanks to blogger 'New Girl in the Air' here.

  


For me it’s too time consuming to do the surveys and the ‘money’ you earn must be redeemed for miles/points/gift cards at a pretty bad exchange rate.  However, you can choose to only sign up with the different e-rewards partners and collect the sign-up bonuses which are usually instant miles. You should first sign up for all the bonus emails with e-rewards partner sites and once you get the invitation from the partner to e-rewards just be sure to use a different email address or the gmail hack.


Right now there is an e-rewards bonus offer of 4,500 Club Carlson points for registering as a new Club Carlson member.  The T&C say you need to be an existing e-rewards member (use the link above if you are not) and you need to use your e-rewards email address when you register with Club Carlson (not sure if this is true – in fact I doubt it is!) and it is for new Club Carlson members only.  You can exchange Club Carlson points into miles at a fairly awful rate of 8 to 1 so the above bonus would only equal 500 miles. It only takes 30 seconds to sign up and if you sign up for a new account ten times using the gmail hack you could earn 5,000 miles for 5 minutes work.  YMMV


Rumor has it Club Carlson will be giving away 50,000 points in a repeat of the Big Blue promo to each person who registers and stays a night at a qualifying hotel.  More on that when the details are published. Update: Rumor confirmed here .

I realize that the Club Carlson offer ended 5/31 but I do have a question nevertheless.

Are you saying that you are able to get 10x the 4500 bonus points?
Does that mean you need 10 Club Carlson accounts too?

@ alohastephen - yes you create 10 new accounts and when the bonus posts you transfer to airline miles

@ GBOW21:

Q: How do I get an E-rewards invitation?

A: Maximize the number of relevant sponsors who have your e-mail address approved for promotional purposes. Like, oh, I don’t know… perhaps… US Airways Dividend Miles! (check their box that allows you to receive promotional e-mails from partners).
A: Check all of your e-mail accounts... even old ones you barely use. Search for e-Rewards. You might already have an invitation waiting for you, and you didn't know it.
