    Just got an invitation to join e-Rewards and receive miles, good or bad idea, is it worth the time? I think I may have gotten this invite some time ago also, but don't quite remember.

    Worth it (barely) for the bonus miles at signup. Not worth it for continued participation IMO.

    I signed up for the initial signup bonus... got about 4 emails a day from them... once the signup bonus posted to my MP account, I closed it. Worth it for the signup, but total BS after that.

    And note: if you are traveling outside the country, most surveys will shows expired/being taken out of country, and you won't be able to do them.

    Unless you have a VPN.

    True, but just because I'm traveling shouldn't mean that I can't answer a survey ... just my pet peeve.

    Or, just because you work for a multinational whose IP block is registered in a different country, you get bounced too ...

    In my experience, even if I clicked the link as soon as I got it, the prompt said the survey was no longer available. Much like the e-rewards experience where everything they sent me didn't match my demographic. Fill in the first few questions and it comes back saying you don't qualify. They're both a total waste of time aside from the signup bonus.

    It was worth it as a hit during Grand Slam for US. That's about it.

    I agree it's rather odd to block a foreign IP address. How many accounts are fraudulently opened by a furriner pretending to be from New Yawk. ;)
