Not a Bing user yet? What could tempt you in to giving it a try? How about some free Skype credit? If you’re in Brazil, you could snap up $2 worth of Skype credit or doing nothing more than setting Bing as your default search engine and MSN as your homepage.
Follow these simple steps and you can “earn up to 60 minutes of calls to mobiles and landlines in Skype”. Once a voucher has been issued, it needs to be added to a Skype account by July 31 but the Skype credit will not expire.
We’ve not been able to check out the offer as all of the Brazilian proxies we’ve tried stubbornly refuse to work, so we’re relying on a submission to Slashdot for this news as well as the translation: “The minutes are based on a rate of $ 0.023 per minute, but the number of minutes may vary depending on the destination of the call and the number of calls you make. The current value of the voucher is $2.00.”
So if there are any readers out in Brazil, head on over to the MSN offers page to take advantage of this special promotion. At the moment, there’s no word about whether similar offers will be coming to other parts of the world, but it’s certainly not beyond the realms of possibility.Further reading: Bing, Microsoft
