So 10 searches is equal to 1 cent. I think Bing Rewards is closer to 1 cent per 2 searches if you get Amazon Gift Cards, but only up to 30 searches a day. The question is, will the two work together? I'm not sure that they will because I think Bing Rewards requires the Bing toolbar, which is only available on Internet Explorer last I checked.

Hmm I wonder if this comes with bloatware. I am a little skeptical, could be the future of browsing who knows? Seems like a great way to grab the consumer.

Bing Rewards doesn't require Bing Toolbar and you can do it with any browser. But I use IE anyway, cause it's awesome.

And what is stopping me from installing this and using a script to search for random series of letters constantly while I actually do work using chrome?

On one hand, I'm being spied on anyway, might as well be paid for it. On the other hand, if it's to find a better way to directly market based on my searches, I wouldn't appreciate all the midget porn ads popping up when I have company over.

Bing has much greater rewards. You get .5 cents per search. Why would anyone want to use this, where you'd need far more searches?

When a product or service is offered as being "Free", the consumer IS the product. Until I learn otherwise, I'm going to assume that is doubly the case with Perk. (And I don't think Google "gives away" services, etc. out of altruism.)

Just tried it out.
Would not suggest anyone to download it.
The installation is 100% automatic and it does everything it can possibly can without even telling you.
Resets most of my Firefox settings (all the addons were almost completely reset), sets itself as the default search and a ton of other bad things.
I just wanted to test it out, but wow, they took over Firefox.
Oh, and by the way, it isn't worth it even if it didn't screw up my computer.
