I’m betting your preferred search engine is Google. For the majority of people, that’s true. That’s why Bing wants to reward you to use their search engine. Even if you prefer Bing, you should be sure to check out the Bing Rewards program that will give you points in exchange for queries that you can collect and later cash in for prizes.
You earn points with Bing Rewards while using Bing for your web searches and optional special offers that can give you more points, faster. Sometimes these are as simple as checking the forecast on Bing or visiting Bing News. You can redeem the points for all sorts of things in the entertainment, dining, gift cards, electronics, and sweepstakes categories. Some of the prizes include 100 Microsoft Points and a 1 month or 3 month subscription to Hulu Plus. The 3 month subscription is the better deal and costs 954 credits. After saving up for the first purchase, would you be able to earn 954 credits in another 3 months and just keep bank rolling your Hulu Plus subscription as a free byproduct of searching the web?
I do a lot of searching so the points add up at a decent pace but the main thing is to make Bing your default search. My trick was to configure Bing to be the default search engine in the Firefox search bar but have Google as the search engine for anything you type in the address bar. So far, Bing has worked well enough for me and Google is just a click away to compare their results if Bing isn’t finding what I need.
