For anyone else who uses Bing Rewards, did you notice that the "$5 for apps and games on Windows Phone 8" reward is gone? It has been my goal since I got my phone (I have redeemed it numerous times) but when I checked today, it was gone. Has anyone heard why this is?

Yes I noticed, and I was at 340 points. Guess will have to settle on 2 - $1.25 for apps and games instead.
Also noticed they changed bing search rewards now it is " 1 credit per 3 Bing searches up to 30 credits a day."

I hope they'll bring back the $5 WP8 rewards!!

I noticed that the $5 deal was missing earlier today...
However, I just saw this post in another thread...
EDIT: the more I think about it, maybe I should stock up on MS points by redeeming the 400 MS points for 475 Bing Rewards Points? Aren't 400 MS points worth $5... If so, it would actually be a better deal than paying 515 BRP for $5 on Windows Phone Store, ONLY issue is that you wouldn't be able to use them for phone apps until they switch over to the new system, later this fall.

Dammit I just saw this. I have 3 accounts for everyone in my house and have just been racking up point over the past few months. Went to cash in and no $5. So now if you want $5 you pay 600 instead of 515. GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

Just noticed this as well. I wish it was all just universal - like being able to use funds from your Microsoft Account Wallet for Windows Phone 8, Windows 8, and Xbox 360.
Oddly enough, I Bing every day and I am a Gold member or whatever but I never got the 30 credits a day thing. I still only get 15.

Quick tip, if you are in the xbox dash beta then your Microsoft points turn into money, it adds to the money in your wallet on wp8 so you should be able to buy the 400 MS point card and it will turn into $5 on your phone, since the points are cheaper than the $5.
If you are not in the beta, and dont mind waiting, you can stock up on points, and when they do the transition in like a month (not sure of date) it will turn into cash for your Microsoft account.
They added $8 to mine, so now I have $10, so I can get halo when it drops

[It really was gone]

Anyone else read the fine print of the $3 Xbox card?
It states that the funds will expire after 1 year from the date of purchase.
While the $3 windows phone doesn't have any detail other than a description.
All my WP money filtered in with my Xbox points conversion. So does anyone know if the WP gift card has the same stipulations as the Xbox gift card? If so, I need to start buying crap....
