New MS Edge browser for Android is reckoned to be worth having, too. 

Yeah, I downloaded it. I logged in but didnt count my searches. Language was hungarian. Had to set language to english, because rewards works only in english. Now its good, got 12 points for it.

it might be the wifi?  I’ve noticed that whilst at the races in France if I use UK betting sites (odds are often better for French horses than the PMU) even if connected via vpn (I use Avast) and I have wifi on it blocks the site as they’re not available in France. Switch wifi off, connect to vpn then open & login to betting site in browser and use Mobile data all is fine so might be worth trying that or using a vpn on a pc as you suggest...

Rewards working for me now, can get points for quiz and mobile and edge search but no points for pc searches. Downloaded new edge on pc, logged in in ms rewards but when i click on pc search Bing comes in, when i do search manually doesent count points. I use hotspot shield  free vpn (as usa because  i use basic) . My pc on LAN but tried wifi as you wrote still nothing. How you guys do search on pc. Just run chrome or other go Bing and thats all?

I run it in chrome & edge on Mac, and Edge or Safari on iPhone...

I will try the windows laptop tonight as travelling for work...

 

One thing to check is bing is logged in to the account not just rewards dashboard, I get that problem, you need to tap the 3 bars top right of the bing page and sign in there too...

 

If your VPN is USA you would need to use the US bing and rewards, are you sure it’s using them?

hmm i think you are doing something wrong again
while US people get more tests to do you wont be able to checkout your vouchers
use only uk vpn with uk account
you also risk to ban your account from rewards
as i said to you many add-ons available for different browsers just check them or even use vpn program not an addon
find the right one before you go too far

also you are saying you found vpn for your phone have you tried to make your browser to show desktop sites ? that way you can maybe do your pc points
or many browsers have options to choose user agent maybe try that also

I use Avast as my vpn on every device, works a treat, except for betting sites needing to use mobile not wifi to use selected location...

That’s not an avast issue have used other vpn’s and had same issue...

Now all works nice and neat, just tried to start offer Mjr. Easy mentiond to use Bing search engine in Chrome and get 500 points and double my search. Did everything as it written, logged in my ms acc in Chrome and nothing. Tried other thing to download edge app and sign in, do 10 search but doesnt gives me 500 points. Have to admit i had it on phone before, removed it and put it back but no points. Any idea?

The 500 points appears as a task in bing rewards. Once it’s there it gives detailed instructions how to set up bing as the default search engine in safari and once you do one search you can go back to the rewards screen and claim the reward.
I was also expecting it to happen automatically but eventually got the points.

All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain.

Time to die.

To get the extra 500 points you have to search more, so instead of 60 points per day for mobile search being available it should be 120 and you get the extra for a few days...

Apologies if I said Chrome I meant Safari...

On the 13th of January I signed up to instagc to see how that went, I'm at 10% towards my £20 Amazon gift card after 10 days that's mostly just leaving videos streaming on my laptop - they stop after a while and need a click and sometimes the old which pictures have a car/road-sign malarkey...

It was slow going but now it's been going a few days the bonuses have increased, I'll see where I get to after a month but at the moment it feels like a bit too much effort as it really needs you to do a survey or 2 every week to boost the points and they take 10-15 minutes or more a pop, at present I've done one each week whilst on the train but dunno if I can really be bothered as way below minimum wage (like Bing to be fair) but feels like too much effort...

Jury's still out...

sounds interesting
how many hours per day you "watch" videos

There’s 2 sites for the videos on instagc, hideoutv.co and instagc themselves...

They usually run for an hour or 2 before needing some confirmation you are still “watching”,  I’d guess it’s playing the videos for 4 or 5 hours a day as I kick it off in the morning, do the clicks when I get home from work, it plays a bit more then I do the clicks before going to bed... I’ve never actually watched it so not sure how long it runs for before needing confirmation I’m not a bot :)

The key thing is the window playing the video has to have focus, ie you can’t do anything else on the machine when the video is playing  so it’s something to leave playing when your not there, I have the sound and screen switched off...  

I’ve seen little clips of the videos when starting it playing, they are terrible don’t consider it as something you could actually watch!

I’d say it takes 5-10mins of my time a day...

hmm that sound like a lot 

maybe if you have old pc which you dont use you can use it for that only but with 4-5h per day your electricity bill will rise aswell

anyway please let us know once you reach your voucher hopefully they will pay it
