Use Bing Search Engine and Get Reward­ed: Here is How


We all know Google is the most popular search engine on the internet, used by an overwhelming majority of the internet populace but Microsoft is trying its level best to propel Bing to the front and is now rewarding people for using their search engine.


Microsoft’s Rewards program, which has been live in the USA since 2011 has now also been launched in the UK.

British internet users who now search on the Bing search engine or shop with Windows, Xbox and Microsoft store — while signed into their Microsoft accounts — will earn points based on their actions.

These accrued points can then be redeemed in exchange for popular games, movies, apps, gift cards, Skype credits and other events. You even get a chance to donate to one of the partnering charities.

“With Bing Rewards, members are exposed to all the great features Bing has to offer while earning credits that are redeemable for rewards,” Microsoft stated.

How Does the Bing Reward Programme Work?

Users get 3 points per search query on Bing and 3 bonus points for those doing the same via a Microsoft Edge browser — 6 points in total — but only until August 15.

Every unique user account can accrue a maximum of 60 points per day (using Edge) via searches and can also participate quizzes to gain additional points.

Every pound that a user spends on the Microsoft UK Store will also reward them with 1 point and this isn’t the end.

If you manage to gain more than 500 points in a month, you’re bumped to the second level of the rewards programme which enables you to earn a maximum of 150 points per day.

Microsoft Bing rewards scheme seems to be a win-win situation for both users and the company as the former is always looking for free stuff and the latter wants to expand its business.

Microsoft Rewards are currently only available in UK and USA but will be launched in Canada, France and Germany soon.
