A little over two months ago I joined both e-rewards.com and e-miles.com and asked what I should expect in terms of rewards for both. Here’s a quick update about where I stand:
E-rewards: $91 e-rewards currency
E-miles: 450 miles
Since $100 e-rewards “dollars” converts to 7,000 Hilton points, I think I’ll easily reach that in less than a quarter. Assuming the reward requirements aren’t inflated and I continue to get surveys at a similar rate, I could be looking at about 28,000 extra Hilton points a year, which is basically a free night at a nice hotel, which is pretty darn good. To be fair the surveys are a bit more time consuming than just clicking through advertisements at e-miles, but I always find time to fit them in when I have a spare moment. All that being said, I pity the company that actually does research using e-rewards. 😉
I’m not totally sure whether e-miles is worth it or not. A few times a week I get an opportunity to earn five miles by clicking through some advertisements, but there aren’t nearly enough. With this I could realistically earn about 500 miles per quarter, or about 2,000 miles per year. Not quite as rewarding as e-rewards.
