By Edited Aug 17, 2015 0 2


Large selection of prizes.
Legitimate way to win free prizes for playing game.
Doesn't operate on a raffle system.


Some users may find the games difficult and boring
Only one prize per household which means you won't be able to earn enough frequent flier miles to go on a trip.

Full Review

Live Search Club has changed its name to Club Bing. Club Bing is owned by Microsoft and provides users a way to win free prizes by playing games. Live Search Club had several scandals that were widely publicized on forums simply because it was not prepared for how many people would be playing and the different methods they would try to cheat the organization. Overall, Club Bing is one of the few ways to actually earn prizes by playing games for free on the internet.

The games on Club Bing are a little different than video games. Most of them are word based. Some skeptics say that this helps Microsoft boost its search engine volume because you have to search for each word to check it. As such most of the games revolve around anagrams and crossword puzzles. Some games only offer three tickets. Chicktionary, Spelling Bee & Word Slugger are basically the same game and offer 20 points each. Flexicon is the highest point value at 25 points a game. Picture This used to be worth 40 points but the game seems to have been lost in the name switch. The anagrams can be difficult or almost impossible to solve on you own so many users resort to an anagram solver.

There is a wide selection of prizes at Club Bing everything from books and DVDs to cooking supplies. There are many items that are emblazoned with the Club Bing logo such as playing cards and even a tent. The prizes come and go quickly as many users have a reserve of points built up waiting for new prizes. More popular prizes such as xbox games may only be on the site for a few hours. Microsoft items are available such as copies of Office & Vista. The highest ticket item is an xbox, which will take almost two months of achieving the maximum points everyday to earn. Some of the xboxs have been reported as refurbished units.

There are several limitations to Club Bing. Only 1,000 points can be achieved every day. You have to live in the United States to receive prizes. There is only one prize per household. Prizes may take up to three months to arrive. Many users have complaints about the almost non existent customer service department. In the earlier days of the Live Search Club botters and spammers took advantage, earning hundreds of thousands of points in minutes and posting pictures of stacks of the same prize. Club Bing reserves the right to not send you your prize if you are botting or cheating the system. Club Bing is a way to earn free prizes by playing games, but it's not always certain that you'll receive your prize and you may get sick of anagrams in the process.

This is straight from the terms and conditions. Plus not only that but I received both of my prizes that I have ordered from them.

Each household may receive a maximum quantity of 1 of each prize item over the life of the Program. If a prize is offered with multiple models, for example, a Microsoft Wireless Keyboard 1000 and a Microsoft Wireless Keyboard Laser Desktop 6000 a household may receive one of each. If a prize is offered in multiple quantities each household may receive no more than one prize of each quantity over the life of the program; for example the household may receive: 100 airline miles, 500 airline miles, 1000 airline miles, and 2500 airline miles. For the purpose of clarity, for airline mile prize orders a single airline mileage account may not receive more airline miles through the Program than the household limit.

I know first hand about the almost non-existent customer service department. I have tried many many times to get someone at Club Bing to reply to the emails I've sent but no one ever does. Just the same preprogramed email saying that they will respond within two working days and they hope you are enjoying the games. Well I am one of the people Club Bing has accused of cheating. I've tried to tell them that they have made a terrible mistake but there is no one there to listen. In my case I don't think there is anyone there who cares because this has caused me a great deal of stress and I have tried to tell them several times that they have made a mistake but no one ever addresses the emails that I've sent. So if anyone else has had something like what is happening to me I would like to know. I just want them to know I did not do anything wrong, I would not know how to cheat and I am to old to learn. I just played their games and thought it was a good thing, but I never expected this to happen. I am nearly 60 years old I just want to be treated with respect not be humiliated.
