Thanks, Bing

Yesterday, I was feeling a bit hungry with some friends and none of us really wanted to pay for some food cause we're broke (the holiday season coming up, yatta yatta) so we all decided pizza sounded good. I remembered that I could redeem my Bing Rewards points and get some coupons for money at Domino's Pizza and that's exactly what we did.

I had a little over 2,000 points available to be used and since I'm a gold member, I only used 1,900 points which equaled to $20. At the end of everything that we got, I only ended up paying a little more than $2 for tax. We were able to get one large 3 topping pizza, one order of bread sticks, two dipping sauces, and a 2 liter drink. And today, I still had enough left over for 2 $5 gift cards at Burger King!

To be like me and see how this program works, head on over to http://www.bing.com/ and click in the upper right hand corner for Bing Rewards. There, you can sign up for a Facebook and/or Microsoft/Outlook/Hotmail/etc. account to get started. In the beginning, getting points becomes quick and fast, but after some time, you accumulate points mostly by just getting online everyday and searching whatever is trending to keep your points and gold membership up. Every 2 searches, you acquire 1 point. Some special searches will yield you 1 point too. Bing also does special giveaways where doing an action like sharing them on Facebook or Twitter will get you 25-200 points.

There are other cool redeemable gifts there as well which can range from other gift cards at popular places like GameStop, Amazon, Sephora, and even the Microsoft Store. You can also enter giveaways for things like Xbox Ones or Nokia smartphones or even use your points to donate to charities.

I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to get free stuff every now and then. I mostly use mine for Xbox points or gift cards when I'm a little broke. It works well and is great because you sometimes forget they're there! But take advantage of the system while it's still here because who knows how much longer they'll keep doing this. As I've always said before, remember that this isn't something that will make you rich, just something to add to whatever you have. It may be useful for one of those days you're buying something and don't want to use your money.
