It’s no secret who the king of the search engines is and Bing has been on a run trying to catch up to that king. Bing rolled out a rewards program awhile back, that offers users rewards for using Bing to perform web searches. You can connect with a Microsoft or Facebook account and earn stuff like restaurant and online gift cards to Microsoft sweepstakes entries. Well now Bing has begun offering up points towards frequent flyer miles for members of participating airlines. Announcement after the break.
Redeem your credits and get 100 points/miles for your favorite frequent flyer, hotel or retail loyalty program. Participating programs include American Airlines AAdvantage®, Frontier Airlines EarlyReturns®, Hawaiian Airlines® HawaiianMiles®, Icelandair Saga Club, IHG® Rewards Club, LifeMiles, My BestBuy™ Rewards, SVM FuelCircle, US Airways® Dividend Miles® and Virgin Atlantic Flying Club.
Once you receive the certificate, choose your preferred loyalty program, enter your member number and some info to make sure it’s you, and your points or miles will be deposited into your program account.
Rack up your credits to get rewarded faster! Travel, stay or shop that much sooner.
Your receipt of awards of miles/points is subject to the terms and conditions of the loyalty program into which you choose to deposit your awards.
This Points/Miles certificate will expire six months from receipt. American Airlines reserves the right to change the AAdvantage® program and its terms and conditions at any time without notice, and to end the AAdvantage® program with six months’ notice. Any such changes may affect your ability to use the awards or mileage credits that you have accumulated. Unless specified, AAdvantage® miles earned through this promotion/offer do not count toward elite-status qualification or AAdvantage Million MilerSM status. American Airlines is not responsible for products or services offered by other participating companies. For complete details about the AAdvantage® program, visitaa.com/AAdvantage.
While Google still beats Bing in some areas, Bing isn’t really all that bad. And this particular deal could be a winner for those who use search a lot and fly a lot as well. While we don’t think Google is going down anytime soon, this program could very well sway a few people over to Bing’s side. What do you think of Bing’s new frequent flyer rewards? Is that enough to make you switch to Bing? Is it enough to even get you to try their search engine? Let us know in the comments below or on Google+, Twitter and Facebook.
