Just interested: how many?
41k, thereabouts in the largest account. I have a couple of accounts so they're spread across them. It stems from being logged into different accounts for different reasons, across different browsers.

Hmm... Enough for a $50 Microsoft gift card. You're ahead of me!

I wonder if I can transfer the points from one account to the other account? If I did that, I'd have somewhere near 65k points.

One account is so old that it's a Hotmail account. Inside that account, I have emails dating back to 2001 or 2002. The oldest account has the least points, oddly enough.

Aside from a glitch I once encountered while using Qwant, I've never had a problem with it. I'd also recommend using Searx and Startpage (just don't use the latter on the Tor Browser because of compatibility issues, as I found that out the hard way).

tried most of the commercial ones over the years settled on Duckduckgo , i got fed up with wading through pages of crap sponsored results that had nothing to do with what I was looking for..
EG last year i was looking for a canvas repairer in my local area, duck gave me the answer within 4 entries, a friend searching the same on google got to page 8 and still nothing local,
