How many hours did you spend playing games on that site? Do you trade points directly for prizes (like tickets in an arcade), or is it an auction style prize system like Pogo?

I just tried it. You get ponts for each game you win, 20, or 25, or whatever.

When you get enough, you can turn it in for prizes. Looks like Vista Ultimate is 6000.

Wow, That's definitely not bad. Ultimate is 179.99 just for the OEM last I checked. I may have to look into this. Thanks!

From what the OP said, this is Retail, which is going for over $300, and can be installed on more than one set of hardware (though only one set at a time). So if your system dies, or you upgrade, you can migrate the same copy of Vista.

I was getting about 5-10 minutes per 25 points earned, so figure about 1-2 hours per 200 points. 10-20 hours for 2000. 30-60 hours at the rate I was working it. After a while I would expect to speed up. Especially with google open in another window. Not bad, would work out to about $10/hr of value at 30 hours for 6000 points.
