Hello,
I am just getting started with bitcoin. I have Bitcoin-Qt installed and synced, but with no wallet or BTC, and because Blockchain.info's backup works with Multibit, I also have Multibit installed with my old wallet containing a miniscule amount of BTC.

One of my bookmarked sites is http://dailybitcoins.org/, which has just given me my first redeemable voucher worth a whopping 0.00003 BTC, and a code which looks like an address.

My questions are:
1) How do I redeem the voucher? I can't figure out how to request the BTC using Multibit - or Qt.
2) With no import feature in Bitcoin-Qt, how do I import my wallet into Qt?

1. That's an advertising coupon, and you redeem it on dailybitcoins.org
2. You must send the funds from your multibit wallet to your Bitcoin-QT wallet!

This is the easiest solution, but getting multibit private keys and importing to Bitcoin-QT works as well, but bit harder

Last time I tried importing multibit private keys to Bitcoin-QT it did not work?

Also, another tips is to use http://free-btc.net.tf since you could even earn several mBTCs per week by the links found there.

The answer to my question of how to redeem the voucher:
Must register with that site. Then a redeem voucher option becomes available.

Then you didn't do it correctly.

Private keys are interchangeable.  Any bitcoin private key from any bitcoin wallet can be imported into any other bitcoin wallet as long as the wallet provides import private key functionality.

Where is the import function in Bitcoin-Qt? I cannot find anything remotely resembling an option to import.

In the "Console" of the "Debug Window" found under the "Help" menu, you can type:

Quote
importprivkey your_private_key_here

Then wait several minutes while Bitcoin-Qt re-scans the blockchain looking for transactions that involved the imported address.

The next question is how do I view my private key? I exported it from MultiBit, but don't know how to view it so I can paste it into the Qt console.
