Looks painful. Anyone have any experience with this service?

OP What is eMiles> I couldn't find much about it on their website. Thanks. I just want to know before I sign up. Do you have to pay for eMiles upon signingup?

It's essentially an ad site that gives minimal point rewards, 5.10,15 for switching you to an ad page. You're then invited to buy, donate or forced to view a short, 15 sec video. Closing the site returns you to the original site where several more ?'s must be answered before credit is given.
I've been using it for about 4 weeks and accumulated 300 points and haven't bought anything. Points are transferred on a regular basis. Works for me. Kind of like MY Points.

All right. Thanks, WashingtonState.

lots of airlines use them. if you create separate accounts with different ones you can take advantage of their sign up offers and such usually. to change your current account it is a nightmare process. they have been around for quite a long time.

I believe eMiles is a separate outfit from the eRewards people (have for years an account for SkyPesos (name used on Flyer Talk for this particular FFP currency...)) on each, since AA wasn't available at the time I suscribed on each). In each claiming miles is different: in eRewards you need to accumulate $25, $50 or $100 (most likely Euros in their EU version) in "their currency" to add to the FFP or FHGP you choose, in eMiles you accumulate in multiples of "their miles" (500's for most FFP, other for FHGP's).
In both cases my experience has been to get the SkyPesos in my account within less than 3 weeks of debiting from my account.
Never tried myself on more than one account for different airlines on either program, but I've seen commented it's a hit or miss thing (both programs can "kick you out" and/or erase excess accounts).
I do believe WN (their code-letters) just recently entered eMiles, it's NOT on eRewards, AFAIK...

Balance: 10 miles
posted: May. 18, 2012 @ 8:41a
the balance in emiles is what can be transferred at 500 mile? increments. you can continue to do things to up that balance. the bonus posts directly to your southwest account in whatever amount of time it takes.

Under eMiles you can't claim mille/point transfer until you get enough of "their currency" for the amount of miles/points stated; you can wait (but not after the yearly deadline at the precise end of a trimester, 30 June in my case) to accumulate for a higher amount of miles/points.
If WN's (Southwest) accumulation (under Rapid Rewards 2.0 scale) is like other airline's (500/$25, 1000/$50 or 2000/$100) you can stratergize that way..
BTW, FL (AirTran, being bought by WN) is also in eMiles accumulating at another level by their distinct point system. You could now (as I've seen the comments on Flyer Talk) transfer FL points (once in FL's FFP computer pot) into WN's Rapid Rewards 1.0 points (check for Flyer Talk's discussion on the matter, it may or may not be important for your mile/point-accumulation strategy...).
PS: Yea, the 250 point offer should be under the RR 2.0 scale...

I tried this last night. Spent probably 20 minutes accumulating just under 300 points (including sign up points).
I don't think it is a particularly efficient way to earn points because the return is so low (and they expire if you don't keep doing something for emiles every month), but if you are just sitting around watching t.v. or something it is pretty painless.
