Letting bloggers out of their “cages” is a dangerous thing. Most bloggers dislike the term “travel hackers” that many in the media refer to us as. I have said before we are more “enthusiasts” as we just read all the T&C of every program and then go all-in in ways the promoters never thought about doing or that anyone would ever do. Today, maybe hacker is a better description. But this is only because they are playing games with us this time.
First off let’s start with all those who are looking to get in with e-Rewards. Most know it is by “invitation only” right? WRONG (for now)! Our beloved Delta Air Lines invites ANYONE to join by following THIS link. Then, once you sign up, you will be able to redeem your e-Rewards for Skymiles (TIP – I normally pick Flex Perks points to buy Delta tickets so I can earn MQM’s & RDM’s).
Once you earn $100 in e-Rewards money, you can redeem them for 2,000 Skymiles. If you work at it, you could get 10,000+ Skymiles a year this way. Note that would take a lot of time answering surveys!
There is some gaming going on with e-Rewards right now. Many who are getting ready for the US AIR grand slam would LOVE to be able to send e-Rewards to them for a free “HIT”. But, as you see above from the Delta invite link, they are not an award option. The really
interesting thing is on my long standing account from the NWA days I CAN NOT redeem Skymiles as an award anymore!
My guess is you have to be invited by US AIR to be able to get US AIR as an award option! But who knows, maybe they will start offering free invites the way Delta is now. For now, just know they love us Delta flyers more! 🙂
On to the other two survey sites. Now you can pick US AIR as an e-Miles award option but in this post it is about DELTA Skymiles with THIS link. With work here too you could get 2000+ Skymiles each year.
Then lastly there is the new one WhiteBoard, that you may get invited to when you click THIS link. Then, with work, get a few thousand Skymiles from them as well.
So a 25,000 Skymiles free ticket in one year? No, but with work, over ½ way there is totally possible. If you add in a Delta AMEX GOLD card to the mix, these surveys can be a nice way to build the balance to get that award you are working for! – René
