RHTP – Rewards Have Their Privaledges

Everyday, almost all of us will run a web search for something.  Every time that we do so, the search engine that we use will sell that information.  Well, it’s time for me to make a shameless plea and a shameless plug for a product that allows me to get more value for my searches.  That product is Bing.

Bing and their Bing Rewards program follow the logic that if you are going to put money in their pocket, they can at least reward you for it.  It’s not much, but over the course of a month, if you average 20 searches per day, every day for 30 days, you will end up with enough credits for a free movie rental or two from Redbox, or even a few dollars in credit from Amazon, or lots of other rewards.  As I said, it isn’t much, but at least I’m getting something for my searches.  Plus, they occasionally have credits giveaways through Twitter or Facebook.  Lastly, unlike Google, they don’t have privacy policies that you may find entirely repugnant (disclaimer: all search engines and social media sites have privacy policies that we find repugnant to one degree or another.  I just use Bing because I find their policies far less repugnant.)

Last week, I won enough credits to pay for 52 rentals from Redbox, or the equivalent of 1 movie per week for a year.  And think about how much quality time that can give you with your kids.
