Bing Rewards- Amazon and Paypal gift cards
I've had a account on Bing rewards for along time and I haven't seen an Amazon gift card but now I also don't see Paypal. those were the main reason I had an account and when I contacted them the first time they said its because of the region I live in. But my sister who lives in the same house as me has both an Amazon and Paypal gift card available. So I complained again and they said basically, some account get it others don't and its random. :/ please let me know if there is anything i can do :(
