From Blingo Buzz:

Pay attention. The Blingo Frenzy is coming.
February 27, 2006 • Blingo Frenzy

Starting on March 1st we’re adding more prizes to Blingo and launching a new feature we call the Blingo Frenzy, a short period of time where Blingo gives away prizes like crazy. We might suddenly give away a bunch of iPod Nanos in one hour, or we might give away movie tickets or iTunes every few minutes! You never know what and you never know when.

So, pay attention or you might miss the Frenzy. Oh, and you might want to make sure your Friends are paying attention too.

We have sent Sarah to the movies 4 times for free because of Blingo! No spam. No fine print. Blingo simply returns the exact same search results you would get from Google but they put 3 paid links at the top and 2 at the bottom. They are making all their money from Adsense. If you prefer, sign up with my wife:

The movie vouchers do expire. Be sure to take advantage of it.

Hello Barbara Gallardo! Maybe you are checking from work or somewhere that filters sites and Blingo may be filtered as “gambling” (which would be a mistake but I’ve even had RealityMe mistakenly blocked under the category of gambling). If you cannot get to Blingo by typing http://blingo.com/ into your browser’s address bar, I’d recommend you take to your Internet provider and see if they are blocking it. Explain to them it is just a search engine and start the process of getting it unblocked. Good luck!
