An unexpected free gift card - Bing Rewards
So I should start off by mentioning that this post isn't directly related to the typical miles and points.
It does fall under the Cash category though, and at least for blogging purchases, "Cash" is my middle name.
I don't specifically remember signing up for Bing search rewards, but I happened to notice recently that whenever the Bing search page would load, I would see my name along with a number that was a little bit higher each time I saw it. I finally clicked on this and found out that I had apparently been earning bing.com rewards points for some time.
I had enough points for $10 worth of gift cards. I redeemed the points for two $5 Tango Cards which were e-mailed to me within a couple of days. From what I can see so far, this deal is probably good for around one $5 gift card per month.
I don't actually go to the bing.com page to do my web searches, my default search engine setting in Internet Explorer is Bing, so I'm really earning these points without doing anything different from how I would normally browse the internet. It may not amount to much but it's free, and if nothing else it will cover a few coffee runs at the airport Starbucks.
