Microsoft will now reward you for using Bing search engine over Google. This is another marketing strategy from Microsoft as they will be rewarding you for using Bing. Whenever you make a purchase online or search the web, Microsoft will allow you to earn points. Here is the catch; you must use Microsoft’s Bing search engine to earn points.
The US people are already enjoying this reward program but just yesterday, Microsoft launched the reward program in the UK. So this is big news for the UK people as Microsoft is set to take people away from Google – the market leader.
We can’t say if this is a good offer but if you will like to search the web and be rewarded, here is everything you need to know about the rewards program.
How to earn Microsoft Reward points?
This is how to earn Microsoft reward points. The more searches you do through Bing, the more points you will earn.
Level 1 members on Bing can earn points for up to 10 searches per day and Level 2 members will be able to earn points up to 50 searches per day (30 PC, 20 mobile). The search limit will automatically reset itself every day, so you can earn more points tomorrow.
A search on Bing will give you 3 points. You can also earn points by buying products through the Xbox, Windows and Microsoft stores, and you will get a point for every £1 spent.
If you want to earn more points, you can enter daily quizzes and challenges through the Microsoft Rewards dashboard, meaning you will need to sign up through Rewards.Microsoft.co.uk.
How to redeem Microsoft Reward points?
Earning loads of point is lovely, but what are the points good for? For 200 points you can enter sweepstakes to win items like Xbox One S or Microsoft Surface Pro.
If you are willing to exchange your points for a more tangible thing, you will need a whooping 6,000 points for an Xbox Live Gold Membership and 9,500 points for a month Groove Music Pass – that is a lot of searches.
You will need 110,000 points for 12 months Groove Music Pass or 99,900 points if you are at Level 2. You can also use the points at the Microsoft store on a range of products but the point you need will likely be as steep.
