...out of curiosity for those who HAVE had an account banned... is it simply banned from Bing Rewards or will MS kill a Hotmail or Outlook account completely? I might stop using my primary email account if they might axe it entirely. >_>


They disable earning or redeeming points on that account, rendering it useless. And using the search bots is the fastest way to get banned.


How do you use search bots?

Too much of a hassle to get less than 400 points a month, I said f*** it. Having to send emails to remind them to redeem my points got real old real fast.

Last month I redeemed over 4000 points for just one month, this month will be even more because they bumped my daily search credits up to 30 a day on 4 out of 5 accounts. From the beginning of April I'm already sitting on 900+ points.

In just over a year I've redeemed just under $400 in points, 3 free months of gold, and entered a few contests.

Maybe instead of being impatient you should have stuck with it.

IThe second, and it's basically the same darn thing, is to "Get 5 Credits when you make Bing! your default Search Engine!" reward. It's the same exact thing as the home page reward. It only works on Internet Explorer (the links don't even show up on Chrome or Firefox), and most of the time, you have to look in the little rewards drop-down menu that appears when you click on your name on any Bing webpage.


Actually, they will show in Firefox. I see them all the time in Firefox because Bing thinks I have something else set. Might depend on version of Firefox though, I use a really old version.

Hmmm... that's actually handy to know. I rarely use FIrefox (my Netbook I use for doing Bing really, really hates anything other than Chrome), so it might have just been the version I was using. So... that just means Chrome is the only one that won't let you set your homepage/search engine for the extra credits.
