Okay, so I have at last gotten a gift card from Reward TV. And it did not quite take the 10 to 12 weeks. I checked, and I ordered this card on 2-26-16, so that’s a little more than a month.
That’s still a long time to wait, but it is here. And it is a regular plastic card with a magnetic strip, so if ever I am able to get a card worth more than $5, I can maybe give it to someone in a gift exchange and not have it be totally obvious that it was a freebie.
Okay, so to recap, Bing Rewards gives you about twenty cents a day (plus an extra ten cents if you can also search on your smartphone) and it takes about five minutes and involves something I would probably do anyway. That is the limit of what you get with Bing Rewards (unless you win something) and you can’t get extra points by doing extra stuff (unless you just get this random extra monthly search thing, which could be worth another few dollars for that month). And you get your gift card online in an email and print it out from your computer, usually that same day that you order it. Swagbucks usually takes more time, but you can earn many more points. And with Swagbucks you also get your gift cards in emails and you print them out from your computer, but they usually take about a week to get to you after you order them. And Reward TV has a very limited number of gift cards, you have to order them at a scheduled time and they are all gone within about five minutes, and they say to allow 10 to 12 weeks for delivery (of a regular plastic gift card with a magnetic strip), but I have one now and it took more like 5 to 6 weeks.
But the Reward TV gift cards are all mine, so stay away. Unless maybe you want a BP gas card. Those didn’t go very fast last time, and I wasn’t interested anyway.
