Anyone know how soon the change is coming?

I know this will be bad for me.I just do legit bing searches each day and don't use any other device but my pc so all these extra ways to get points won't do me any good.So the taking away the discount on amazon makes it worse now for me each month.

I guess everyone should try to empty their account if they can before the change.

I just cashed in my last 5 dollar.  Ever sicne the windows 8 upgrade my 10 accounts have been banned and im down to my normal one i have noooo income anymore.  And with this new "improvement" i bet they screw the rewards even more.

Do we even know how much the "cost" of Amazon cards is going to go up? That's primarily what I use Bing rewards for to begin with.

According to the FAQ page ( https://www.bing.com.../ms-rewards-faq ), non Microsoft $5 GCs will be 5,250 points which is the equivalent of 525 points under the current program.

So it is a good idea to cash in your points on Amazon now while you can still get a discount.

Watch ms make everything super expensive like amazon cards 200,000 points

 

 

 

Dont like this at all

 

 

Those who sign-up for Microsoft Rewards, currently US-only, will be awarded points for using Microsoft Edge.

Microsoft will monitor how much time you spend using the minimalist browser, with users required to hit 30 hours a month.

The US technology firm will also watch your mouse movements to make sure you're using the browser properly and not tricking the system.

I guess their browser will see a huge increase in YouTube visits...create a 30-hour playlist and let it run every night. As far as "tricking the system," I wonder if they mean spamming the thumbnails on the Bing bar? If so, I might have to actually search for things with Bing. :/

My account switched over. The only difference I noticed is the Gold discount is gone. Otherwise everything translates to how things were. Points are just multiplied by five*. I'm able to earn the same value of daily points with the same amount of searches.

Well, there is also the Edge browser bonus, and what I'm guessing are introductory point offers.

 

Edit. Actually, it's multiplied by 10

I have never redeemed more than one amazon a day, I thought years ago people thought that was a way to get your account banned.Is that still true and has anyone redeemed several amazon in a day and not had their account have any problems.

I was saving for 4 months for a 12 month Xbox gold code but I still need around 24 days.I am trying to decide if I should just cash out the account on amazon before my account changes.

My account just changed today.If anyone has any question I can answer let me know.

I personally don't like the changes.I think its tougher to find what your looking for and to tell if you have completed daily stuff.

The only good thing that happened was I did all my searches and daily stuff last night at 1 am and they must have reset my account today when they changed it so I got to do all the stuff a second time so I think I got two days of points for one day.

On a somewhat related note, I love daylight savings because Bing does not reset your searches until 1 a.m. That extra hour has been the difference on many occasions.
