No Rewards Yet!!!!

Hello, fellow mylotters!! No, I'm NOT talking aboput getting rewarded from mylot, as mylot has always paid me! However, I haven't gotten 2-$5.00 Amazon credits. I use bing as my search engine and for every 5250 credits (searches) you can redeem for a $5.00 Amazon credit. Recently they switched to microsoft, and ever since then I've been having problems redeeming and getting my rewards. When they switched to microsoft, you had to have a phone number to get verification. I, of course didn't like that idea, but I used the hubby's phone number and then he would give me the code if he was at work. The code however, that they would give me was NOT a code to get my credit applied to my reward. When I redeemed my 5250 credits was on January 4th. I'm still trying to get it!! Then on the 11th, I got an email stating they got every thing straightened out, so within 24 hours I could redeem again!! (Luckily I had enough credits to redeem.) I was skeptical of redeeming again since I hadn't gotten my January 4th reward yet, I emailed the support this, but I redeemed another 5250 credits! This time when I redeemed there was no code that I got on our phone!! I got an email stating I would be rewarded within 24 hours!! That was on January 12th. It's now January 14th!!! Does anyone else get rewarded for bing/microsft searches? Are you having problems redeeming, even after contacting support? Good thing I haven't bought anything from their microsoft store!! ~Peace~ photo courtesy pixabay

I've heard of it but do not participate. I like Swagbucks--they are very good about crediting stuff.

I never did stick with it when it was Bing and it just does not seem to be working for you at all. Let us know if you get it settled.

That's really weird. It seems like all of my rewards have been sent immediately when I ordered them. Not sure if that's before the Microsoft switch or not, though... Maybe following up with support wouldn't be a bad idea, or checking your spam folder to see if it ended up there?

I have been earning points for using Bing with MS Edge, but I haven't tried to redeem any points yet. I hope you credits come through soon.

I think that I used to when I lived in the US... but I don't think it is available here in Canada. That's the only reason that we quit... I do hope that they come up with your gift cards though!!

I have been rewarded for my Bing searches but have not tried the Microsoft redemption yet, I hope I have no problems.

I have the same issue. I love Bing and really hate to use any other search engine BUT come on. I have a landline. No cell phone or friend nearby with one. So when I go to redeem the page that comes up is one asking for my phone number and giving me two options. I go for the one that isn't Voip. Doesn't work. I email Microsoft email. They email me back to please be patient and they will check with research on this issue. So I wait. And wait. Finally after a couple days I get an email back. Try it again in 24 hours. I do and it usually works.Some times I have to try it and if it doesn't work try again in a few and it does. Each time I have to email them I ask them if they couldn't just issue me a code to use each time. I never have gotten an answer to that. It is so frustrating. Ever since the Bing went to Microsoft Rewards it has done this.
