Winzy is No More
I went to do a search on Winzy today and their is a screen that says Winzy has closed
and listed to other sites to visit. One of the sites is a recipe site.

I guess that Swagbucks and blingo will be the search engines of choice.
I was using Swag, Blingo and Winzy daily.

I know that KB Social once won from Winzy a nice cash award.
Her nice photo was posted on their site.

I stopped using all those prize search engines a while a go although I did win from one of them a long time ago. I now use swagbucks exclusively, I don't win prizes but I sure do get points and have already received a bunch of Amazon GCs. Hey "a bird in the hand" as they say.

Winzy was actually "out of business" starting in April of last year. At least that is when they cancelled their status as a limited liability corporation with the state of California. They had paid for a domain with godaddy.com through 2013. Since they shut down the place was a madhouse. All kinds of profanity and hostility. It degenerated quickly once no one was minding the store. I am glad that they finally made it official.

Sign up under me with Blingo or Irazoo

Ditto. After they stopped awarding and giving out prizes, I stopped using them. I was addicted to winzy and I did win a nice prize from them once (Ipod nano, chose Amazon GC) but, they went downhill. I prefer and swagbucks

I won an iPod nano and numerous GC's from them before they stopped paying out. I've been expecting this for a while. Once users begin complaining that prizes aren't being received it's only a matter of time. It was great while it lasted though.

I switched to Swagbucks a long time ago (soon as I saw the handwriting on the wall). I don't regret the switch - Swagbucks is awesome.
