Redeem Bing Rewards points to selected frequent flyer programs in the U.S.

Bing

Bing Rewards is a neat program from Microsoft that enables web surfers who utilize Bing to earn rewards for using the service. Today, Microsoft announced integration with US carriers for converting points to air miles. If you're not familiar with air miles, airlines have their own frequent flyer programs that reward customers with savings and promotions on point schemes. If you search with Bing, you'll be able to convert points earned to miles with participating programs.

Bing Rewards will be pairing with American Airlines, Frontier Airlines, Hawaiian Airlines, Icelandair Saga Club, IHG Rewards Club, LifeMiles, My BestBuy Rewards, SVM FuelCircle, US Airways and Virgin Atlantic Flying Club. All you have to do is (once you've received the certificate) select your preferred loyalty program, enter your member number and all points or miles will be transferred to the specified account. Be sure to read through terms and conditions and other details on the Bing Rewards website for further information.

Redeem Bing Rewards points to selected frequent flyer programs in the U.S.

Microsoft does a lot of really good things.
But i really am disappointed that non-US countrys don't get the whole Bing experience. That's a slap in the face.

Bing in germany is poor as hell, in comparison to bing in USA.

You guys get all the fun.... good to see something our way for a change. Although, Microsoft and Nokia merging should be good for all of us to compromise ;) (cough) and Xbox Music once it updates (cough) ahem, excuse me. ;)

I hope that Xbox music store is coming to all the other regions as well. I don't talk without proof. On my Windows phone 8.1 emulator, I accidentally searched for Indian music and yes, it showed up in Xbox music. What do you have to say now?

It will be 2 months next week since the launch of the sheep and robot Bing Rewards apps...It doesn't seem that Microsoft is overly concerned with pleasing their WP users...I understand that more people use the other operating systems but 2 months and counting is just ridiculous.

Is under setting in Cortana, but all it does is let you login. Other than that it does nothing useful. I hope they add the ability to get credit for searches soon.

Am I the only one who hinks thats too few miles for that many points. I would rather get a 3 dollar amazon gift card. You need 25000 for a really crappy round trip flight on American or US Air, 100 points wont make a dent.

Yeah - why can free stuff not have even more value for me! noone needs free stuff with little value, right? always complaining.. always!

Or you can use your points for something for more value, thats my point. The other gift cards they have provide more value per point then what they are offering. Hey its ok you want to make less off your points then go for it. I will continue to get my 5 dollar amazon gift card every other month.

 

Oh and just because someone brings up a point to think about doesnt mean they are complaining. Here enjoy your free blanket, dont question it, its free.

I search with Bing, I get point, and I will buy cortana shirts
But why I can't get point by cortana in wp8.1

I wondered about whether we would be getting Bing rewards on WP. When I saw Cortana integrated into search, I figured the answer was no. Anyway thanks for this article, I have over 2000 points with more options.

I asked the Bing Rewards team about when Windows Phone will support this feature. Here is their response:

I've been with Bing Rewards since inception and I used to cash in for airline miles a lot at the beginning before they restructured the rewards.  It helps when you're a non-frequent flyer with a frequent flyer account. Everytime you redeem a 100 mile reward, you push back your points expiration date another 18 months without having to worry about losing them because you didn't have a chance to fly anywhere. 

Question: Do you US guys get points for making searches through the windows phone's bing search page(accessed by pressing the hardware search button)?

Can't they just enable the feature in the rest of the world? Or are there some laws who are making Microsoft having a hard time by not permitting it? :(
