I have a feeling it was a "only for the recipient of the email" promotion.

You are right.

You had to be invited by Amazon for Amazon to be automatically pre-populated as a sponsor in the enrollmen... (more)

It's your deal. How about you find out and tell us?

Figured I would just try and see if it's worth it, at least get $10 Amazon out of it if nothing else. Was only able to get 115 miles and never saw an activation offer so this deal is a no-go it seems.

I generally don't trust a company like this until they have some history. This isn't the 90's and not everyone is giving away free stuff!

I agree! I don't see the offer anywhere and they'll have a bunch of users for advertisement purposes without giving them anything.

BTW, emiles.com is the #1 source that Frequent Flyers use
to keep their Frequent Flyers active
-since the airlines like to take away from dormant Frequent Flyer accounts.

From the Enrollment Form Page

Simply spend a few minutes of your time each week reading and reacting to marketing messages that have been preselected to match your interests.

Watch a TV spot or review an offer, tell us what you think by answering a few short questions, and get rewarded for your time with e-Miles miles. Your miles will quickly add up and can be redeemed for Amazon.com Gift Cards and used to purchase millions of popular items online at Amazon.com.

To enroll, simply tell us a bit about yourself by responding below. The more information you provide, the more relevant and entertaining your experience will be.

This is actually very easy...you don't have to actually do the offers in the sense that it would cost you anything or that you have to order anything. All you have to do is answer the survey questions by hitting continue once you open up the offer. The points are awarded immediately and I cashed out for $10 Amazon. It's pretty simple...reminds me of Mypoints back in the old days!

ricksgal said:   This is actually very easy... The points are awarded immediately and I cashed out for $10 Amazon.Help!

I clicked through the five activation offers and quickly earned 500 points. But I don't see how to cash out the points for $10 Amazon. All I can find is the Deposit Miles link to transfer miles to my frequent flier account.

Did everything (lied on every step lol) and don't see any way to get the Amaz0n $10. Help?

Edit: I went through each offer and clicked the radio buttons (PITA, by the way). Indicated no interest to everything. I don't own a car. I don't go out to eat. Basically, I don't do anything lol. After this tedious process, my balance is only 105 miles and I am out of offers.

Is the secret to re-do the surveys to...sound interesting? All I want is the $10 card they said I'd get. Need at least 500 miles to redeem anything. Currently 395 short. This is aggravating.

I want my 10 minutes back.

Just sent support an email asking where my $10 GC is. This ought to get interesting fast.

This is like the fisherman who tells you about the 24" brook trout he caught - and released before getting a photo.

When they see my survey answers, they will wonder if I even exist. Based on my answers, I'm the most boring person in the world. Have no interest in anything and never leave the house. Haha.

Maybe that's why I punished with only 105 miles earned after all surveys...

I did not get any chance to select the Amazon Gift card while creating an account. I can see all other airlines

After you are logged into emiles.com,
go to the following link to 'Request Deposit'
https://www.e-miles.com/depositRequest.do

-to apply what you have earned toward an
airline frequent flyer program, hotel loyalty program or retailer.

I can see only the airline FF program which I selected while creating an account.No more Amazon in my account.

Just bumping this up in case people want to give it a try!

I think they should first give me that $10 by mail, send me to Vegas for free, free limo ride from airport, several night stay at Bellagio, free show tickets, then only they can convince me to sign up.

I have earned a few thousand air miles with e-miles and as mentioned it is a good way to keep you air miles from expiring.
Note that the more interests you indicate the more offers they give to you. You can slowly earn hundreds of miles just by viewing offers without having to buy or sign up for anything.

I tried it for the hellavit ... no sign of 500 miles. Just 120.

I signed up but only got 115 points. Where is the 500 miles?

You are right.

You had to be invited by Amazon for Amazon to be automatically pre-populated as a sponsor in the enrollment form and for Amazon gift cards to be available as an option under 'deposits.' Once you select a sponsor, if you want to change sponsors, you would lose any of your balance that has not been deposited to any sponsor.
