Bingo Retirement

We created Bingo one and half a year ago, and it benefits many people. We designed the program ethically so that either Google or Bing got searching data fairly. However, due to legal issues, we have to retire this extension entirely. Bingo will be removed from Chrome Web Store from Jan.1, 2014. If you are a current user, please remove it from the extension panel by then.

We are so sorry that we have to remove this plugin. We hope Google and Bing provide better and better search experience in the future.

Finally, let’s take a vote.

What will you do after Bingo retires?

Spread Your Kindness to the World

Updates: You can reactivate the extension in the options page for version 2.1.4 and later. Sorry for the inconvenience caused.

You may use Bingo for free. Yes, it’s true. We even don’t put a single advertisement in the extension and we also do not accept donations even though some users would like to donate. Why are we doing this? The reason is simple. We want to benefit others. However, when you receive benefits from others, will you consider to help other people without return? Actually, a lot of people out there need your help. Continue reading

Use Localphone to Save on Both US and International Calls

Localphone is one of the cheapest international call companies in the world. Its low calling rate beats Skype, Rebtel, Google Voice and etc. At the mean time it provides high quality of voice service. In this article, we assume you are living in USA, but actually, you will still save a lot when in every corner of the world.

We will first teach you how to register and use basic functions on Localphone website, followed by two parts which tell you how to choose different Localphone service for different plans. In the first part, we assume you have an AT&T Mobile Share with Unlimited Talk & Text plan and introduce you how to use Local Numbers service. In the second part, we assume you have a T-Mobile Unlimited Web & Text with 100 Minutes Talk plan and introduce you how to use Internet Phone service. If you have any other plans, the idea is still the same. The rule is if you have more data in the plan, try to use Internet Phone service, otherwise use Local Numbers instead. Continue reading

Swagbucks Plugin for Bingo

  • Introduction

What is Swagbucks? Swagbucks is a search reward program which lets you win some Swagbucks (SB) when you search through their website. Unlike Bing Rewards which guarantees to give you one point every two searches, Swagbucks randomly gives you SB during your search. For most (85 percent) of the searches, you will get nothing. However, if you win by chance (we call it a hit), you will get about 10-20 SB immediately, or even more. Although the rewards are random and the chances are random, on average, there is a hit every 10 searches, which means, you are rewarded as much as from Bing.

Repeatedly searching will not increase your winning rate and Swagbucks use some special mechanism to generate random winners. Gathering tips and tricks from the web, we designed this plugin to optimize your search. Continue reading

Use Google Search While Collecting Bing Rewards

Wanna collect Bing Rewards? Also wanna stick with Google Search? This extension is the right tool for you. It lets you use Google Search while collecting Bing rewards.

Basically, when you search from omnibox or from Google website, this extension will send a search request to bing in the background for you. The search results are from Google and the rewards are added to your Bing account.

The benefit is that it will not be treated as a robot or invalid search because the searching behavior is exactly the same as yours.
