We all know Bing is Microsoft Search Engine and it is competing against Google for market share. In order to gain market share from Google Bing is actually spending lots of money to attract users to use Bing. Bing Rewards is once such attempt to attract users to use Bing Search.  Bing Rewards is a simple program that involves earning credits for using Bing search and then use those credits to redeem various prizes such as:

If you signup today you will get 250 Bing Credits immediately. I signed up 2 days back and I have reached 288 credits. Unfortunately there is no referral program for Bing Rewards :( so these are not referral links in the post.

Now the most important question “Am I losing something by ditching Google for Bing?”

Till now the answer is NO. It seems like I was using Google out of habit rather than necessity. There doesn’t seem to be much difference between the search results returned by Bing or Google. How long this will last that time will tell. I would say “Make Hay while the sun shines”, use Bing and earn some rewards too.
