    I'm looking for way of earning HHonors points outside of the usual avenues. I noticed a website called E-Miles which offers the chance to earn some free HHonors miles on joining, and then more after that for looking at marketing ads.

    The rules stipulate it's US residents only, though I did manage to create an account with them.

    Apparently my profile needs to include a US address. The question is, can you just make one up, add your HHonors details and still earn the points? This is a little bit naughty!

    I set up an e-miles account when I took part in the US Airways Grand Slam promotion in 2012. I believe that you have to choose the partner in advanced, so cannot have multiple options like you see on some e-rewards accounts.

    I was UK based at the time....no particular problem, as I used my old California address.

    When you first set the account up you will have lots of offers that will get you 50-75% towards your first reward. After that it's a little slower.

    I still use e-miles to top up my merged AAdvantage account. Essentially I get 500 miles per 6 months....nowhere near the amount that I can earn through e-rewards, but a useful revenue stream nevertheless.

    Yes, we have two accounts. I searched for a business address in NY, copied the address and all ok. When it asks for your zip or postcode as we know it I think you need to only put the numbers in and not NY at the start.
    The HH points take approx 7-10 days to post to your account.
    I personally find the peanut lab surveys not as dependable as erewards, I tend to get accepted for a lot of surveys then when you proceed it just states your not a right match. I also have noticed that some surveys I have completed successfully but checking back the day after it states disqualified?
    Personally for me erewards wins hands down over emiles but it is another route if you can bothered to sit out lots of non matches for HH points.
    You do get regularly 5 point 3 question surveys connected to ads, these do mount up.

    Thanks gents. Just filling in all those 5-15 point 'tell us about yourself' pages a the moment. 115 miles so far.

    Puzzled as to how I get the 500 HHonors miles as there's nowhere to enter my Hilton membership number. Any ideas?

    Hi,
    When we managed the first 500 miles it automatically then allowed us to pick our redemption partner box like erewards and you then enter your HH account number.
    In regards to new account offers we got which I think is standard earn 250 miles for completing various tasks like questionnaires. On start up you can easily get to 350-400 miles quickly but it's the surveys which are tricky offering on average 19 miles for 15-20 mins work.

    I used e-miles for a fair old while, but ultimately (as GOGD above notes) when I'd gone through the initial stash of fairly juicy points offerings, I found it just a touch too fiddly for the points I was getting.

    That said you can get occasional decent chunks by signing up for brochures etc. The intro offer Litefoot flags above is also worth it for new users too.

    The US address issue can be fairly easily circumvented using Google...

    My only concern is that these companies I sign up to are going to send out brochures to non-existent addresses, with USPS postmen looking for places that aren't there. And I wouldn't send out junk mail to an existing address, hardly fair on them.

    How do you get around this?
