What are your ideas to improve Bing?

Post something that accurately shows the difference in the Bing reward changes

You are claiming that with the new rewards system, individuals can "earn points faster." This is only if they spend money. Yes, you can earn 2,000 points if you spend 2,000 dollars on a Microsoft laptop. In reality, many of us utilize Bing search as a method to earn points (and to help Microsoft compete with Google in this realm). However, in the past, it would take approximately 100 searches (with a daily limit of approximately 8 earning points). It now takes approximately 1,000 searches to earn the same gift card. The reward points you need to redeem increased ten fold while the points you earn for searching and engaging in quizzes, other advertisements, etc. has remained the same. I have read through the comments from Microsoft staff that have made claims that are not clear. I have read the articles on how the rewards system has changed. My idea is to post something that is HONEST and CLEAR about the rewards systems so people may know whether or not it is in their best interest to no longer subscribe to rewards or utilize bing as their primary search engine. I, personally, feel misled and am utilizing more Google and Apple features now.

    Thanks for taking the time to share your feedback. We did make some changes to the program when we switched to Microsoft Rewards, including the shift from credits to points. 1 credit now equals 10 points, and this change is reflected in both earning and redemption. For example, under Bing Rewards, each daily offer was worth 1 credit and 1 sweepstakes entry cost 20 credits. Under Microsoft Rewards, each daily offer is worth 10 points and 1 sweepstakes entry costs 200 points.

    For more information about the changes to the program, please visit http://www.bing.com/explore/ms-rewards-announcement
