    Bing is an awesome search engine, but I'l hazard a guess and say most, if not all of you don't use it. Well, according to Microsoft, they are resorting to a strategy that gives you rewards for using their service.

    The most easy reward to get is Microsoft Points, which of course can been redeemed on your Zune or on your Xbox via Xbox Live. For signing up and installing Bing Bar (which is compatible with IE, great and maybe Firefox) you will get a tasty 250 Points. 100 Bing Points equates to 100 Microsoft Points which is around $1.25

    Above the 250 points, you can do more searches to gain more points. You can get 8 Points for searching 16 times per day and have pre-programed searches to hand out 6 points each day, and you can eventually get video games, Bing Merchandise and random other stuff.

    The bad thing about all this? Its given to you via mail so you cant depend on those instant E-mails to bring you them Microsoft Points.

    Get Bing-ing!

    Nice, I see Amazon Giftcards on the Screen, is the service up? I'd definitely sign up for it, and get some Amazon cards to buy Music

    Yeah, just made 300 Bing Credits

    Here's the link:

    The toolbar is a bit buggy on Firefox, therefore I use it with Internet Explorer.

    Just make some random searches until you have 270 Credits, then click on rewards and complete the offers, which give you each 6 Credits. You should end with 300.

    Thanks for the Tip, I will now do this every day till I get a Amazon Card

    ... please research before you troll/flame. Did you even notice you can get Amazon Gift cards? That means: Legally Free Music

    I'm glad I have converted you Googleers to the holy religion of Bing, worship with your searches and gain rewards from the holy Steve Ballmer.

    What's you next goal? To convert us from the Religion of Apple? Cause I'm kinda down with that.
