bada bing, bada boom!

April 21, 2014

bing!bing!bing!bing!Bing reached out and wanted me to try their Bing Rewards program and I figured why not. I’ve been using it for a bit now and it works great. I switched my phone and iPad over to have Bing as my main search engine because I like the idea behind their rewards program. I’m constantly doing searches anyways, but with Bing, I earn a credit for every search I do. No need to purchase anything, just search, and earn credit. Once you reach so many credits, you can exchange them for prizes. I’ve got my eye on one month Hulu+ subscription (300 credits) because I really want to watch the season finale of Scandal and not have to wait a week. Thankfully, I’m almost there, so probably after today, I’ll get to sit down and relax with a glass of wine and Olivia Pope (oh and Jake! totally #teamjake). If Hulu+ ain’t your thing, there’s Starbucks, Sephora, Applebees, Amazon, and the list goes on. It’s not a whopping $100 gift card, but it’s a little bit ($3 – $5 increments) that’s pretty much free money since you don’t have to spend anything to get it. You just do what you do already, and keep searching, but just makes sure it’s on Bing, and if you do searches on iOS, you can get credits on that too!

My searches lately have revolved around My Little Pony. True’s birthday is coming up and she wants a My Little Pony party at a hotel (similar to Brave’s last year). I’m trying to look for pony-inspired decor that will be easy to put up in a hotel room and other things I can make to make it more Ponyville-ish. I know a recent episode had a Rainbow Dash party and that gave me a lot of ideas, but Rainbow Dash isn’t her fave, Fluttershy is, so I’ve been trying to get ideas for that. (Oh and she wants me to make everyone a pony costume! Can anyone please tell me where I can search for time to make that?!) I did find a Fluttershy party hat print-out, and sketched out ideas for a Fluttershy inspired dress, so I’m getting there. Thus, while I was doing my searches for that, I was racking up credits, totally works for me.

Ben totally knows more about My Little Pony than I do (he’s a Brony, but not a crazy one), so I’m needing to do a lot of searches to make sure I’m getting my pony facts and ideas right. Rainbow Dash is thunderbolt, clouds, and rainbows (duh!) and Fluttershy is butterflies, shy, and animals. Did I get that right? Don’t ask me about Pinkie Pie and the others just yet, I don’t know much about them. I guess I better start paying attention when we have family cuddle night and watch My Little Pony. I lie in bed with them watching, but my mind zones out and I’m not really paying attention though I’m staring at the screen. Anyone else do that?

Anyway, try Bing out if you like. I say it doesn’t hurt, there’s no cost to you, and you earn a little (without having to spend anything), so bada bing bada boom… Bing it!

    You don’t really hear about bing much so I’ve never thought to give it a try. Although I do remember a great commercial were they ask people which searchs came up better (having bing and google hidden) and everyone picked bing unknowingly. Our house should try bing! How was your Easter in your family?

      I say try it, if you don’t like it, go back. I like that you can earn credits (for something I already do), so that’s what entices me. Today, I think they added on you can turn your credit into flyer miles, so I’m going to look that up. That sounds like a pretty good deal.

    At the point where blogs become infomercials, I feel I need to checkout.

    • Rubyellen says:

      No problem! There are so many blogs out there, I’m sure you will have no problem finding one that completely inspires you.

    As for pony costumes.. Would it be easier if you can find matching colors shirt/jacket and pant OR one piece (like a footsie pajamas. is that what they call it?) and add ears, hair, tails and wings? It’ll be cute! 🙂

    • Rubyellen says:

      That would definitely be easier, but we already have 2 homemade ones, so my neurotic self must make them match! 🙂

  • Cait says:

    I’ve tried swagbucks but didn’t know bing did this too…I’ll have to ask my husband about it! I had wanted to install their search bar and we decided not to because of privacy. I’m not sure what to think about that but I guess nothing is private on the internet anyway… I’ve seen you pinning pony parties and am excited to see what you come up with!
