I Made The Decision Yesterday

I hate change but, I decided yesterday that I am leaving Bing. I used it since 2012 but have had issues since they changed their format. Their Reward system sucks. For a $5 Amazon gift card I have to jump through way too many hoops and am tired of it. The support group had been nicely telling me I needed to start using a cell phone. Well, my daughter got one so I tried it this last time. No difference. I click through to redeem my card and get the same notification when I put in the cell phone as I was using our landline number. No change. How pathetic is that? I will start using Swagbucks search engine for now anyway. I do like Bing but am finding Swagbucks one is okay. I always like to use/patronize the small underdog if possible. I was getting my points each day on Swagbucks for the search but, wasn't using it all of the time. So now I will and see how it goes. I love to do research and I get most of my numbers, hours, and info on businesses and restaurants from search. So, we'll see.

I have never understood exactly how those sites work. Looks to me like they want you to buy merchandise.

Oh, so if I did that it would work? Change my choice and it will go better for me? Hmm.

I do not blame you for leaving Bing since their reward system is below par for the course.

Swagbucks never tried it. May be it is good for shopping or redeeming the points.

Swag beats out Bing any day of the week. I quit doing Bing when they changed the rewards system.

I guess I'm a bit slow and loyal. I'm done though. I will follow through on this redemption and then it is over.

It was on swagbucks somewhat recently that someone here gained 100 points from doing a search. I've never got that much even when I've not used their search engine in a while. I think it was rebelann that posted about it, but not sure. I've never used bing, so I didn't even know rewards were a possibility with them however small.

I got 60 once. It's rare to get real high points but it does happen. Bings is a lost cause. I have given up on them. I will get this redemption and then I won't use it anymore.

Maybe it's a woman thing. I like accumulating points and reaching goals.
