Bye Bye Bling

A few days ago, I received an e-mail from Bing.com telling me that their cash back program would be ending in just a few months. I know I'll miss having the ability to find the very best deal on cash back sites and Bing had some of the best cash back amounts.

"We are writing to notify you that the Bing cash back program will be discontinued, and the last day to earn cash back on your Bing Shopping purchases will be July 30, 2010."

"We encourage you to redeem your cashback savings and to further support redemption, we are waiving the $5 minimum payout effective July 31, 2010."

I think one of the major reasons that they ended the program was that it was most likely a marketing scheme to get the word out about Bing, but though I use the Bing cash back program, I continue to use Swagbucks for my searching needs.

What are your thoughts?
