Offer gift cards to everybody because it isn't fair how only some people can redeem them.
My friend can still redeem Starbucks/Amazon gift cards and it is not fair how other people can't. I understand how those offers were available for a certain period of time. However, that time has ended (which is why most other people cannot redeem them), so I don't understand why those people can still redeem those gift cards. If Microsoft keeps up this "double standard" allowing only some people to redeem the gift cards, people will have a bad impression on Bing (as I do right now). I am not happy with Bing/Microsoft because of this. It is not fair at all. I've seen comments from the Bing admins saying that offers are updated. However, those comments were made almost exactly 1 whole year ago, and those gift cards still aren't available. Even if Starbucks gift cards aren't offered, please offer other gift cards (such as Dunkin Donuts or Visa gift cards). My friends who currently can redeem the Starbucks/Amazon gift cards have told me that they do not use Bing often. However, the people that actually do use Bing often are not offered these gift cards, which is unfair.
