Bing rewards

A few weeks ago we reported that users were receiving mobile credits for Bing searches on their Windows Phone 8.1 devices. At the time, Bing Rewards still had Windows Phone listed as “coming soon” on their site, but starting a few days ago that has lifted as Windows Phone 8.1 is now listed on their support page.

Bing Rewards is a program from Microsoft that rewards you for using Bing search. The more you use it, the more points you can collect. Those points can then be used to redeem gifts from the site, including Amazon.com gift cards, OneDrive extra storage, entering contests and more.

Microsoft’s Bing Rewards program is a stellar way to earn gifts using Bing. The Bing Rewards program was launched by Microsoft back in 2010 and has been really successful where available. You earn credits by doing Bing searches that can be redeemed for gift cards, sweepstakes and other items. It does have two little faults: Bing Rewards isn’t available everywhere and you couldn’t earn points on Windows Phone. That’s how it was, but it looks like credits can now be earned through Windows Phone.

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.

Microsoft has actively given away terabytes of OneDrive storage to consumers over the rebranding period already, but fear not if you've missed out on previous promotions. The company is giving away 100GB of storage through Bing Rewards. Whether you store your massive photo collection from your Windows Phones or enjoy collaborating and sharing content with others, this extra space will come in handy to many.

Microsoft has a Bing Rewards program set up to enable you to earn credits by simply using services available. By earning said credits and redeeming them for rewards, you can pocket awesome items like gift cards for Amazon, Xbox, Skype and more, or even donate your hard-earned credits to schools or charities.

Previously, Bing Rewards was only possible through web browsers on a laptop or PC, but Microsoft has today announced that the program will hit Android and iOS today and soon Windows Phone.

If you have a Windows Phone, you probably use Bing and if you have PC or Surface, you probably use it as well. Good news then if you’re enrolled in the Bing Rewards program, because for only 2 credits, you can redeem yourself a 5% discount coupon from the Microsoft Store.

The offer is only good through this weekend but that also means that you can stack this on top of the big Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales expected to go live soon.

The other day we mentioned how you use your Bing Reward points for a chance to win an HTC 8X Windows Phone. Did you know you can also use Bing Rewards to make purchases at the Windows Phone Store?

Redeeming 170 Bing Credits will get you $1.25 worth of Store Credit that can be used to buy apps and games.  Note, this is the same redemption offer we mentioned earlier this month but it appears the $5.00 Store Credit option is no longer available and it is only available for Windows Phone 8 because of the Wallet feature.

You'll need to sign up for the Bing Rewards Program and credits are earned each time you use Bing for your search needs. It's an easy way to pay for your Windows Phone Store purchases. Now if we could only get gift cards...

Thanks, Richard, for the tip!

Do you have Windows Phone 8 (see review)? Okay, well probably not quite yet but if you are about to get one and you have some Bing points sitting by (you know, those things you get for every time you do a search using Bing on your computer), you can use 'em for the Windows Phone Store.

Yup, Bing Rewards has two special Windows Phone 8 offers on hand--one for 170 credits ($1.25) and one for 525 credits ($5). Redeeming them will turn into credits/voucher for the Store, which you can then use to buy Windows Phone apps...

Microsoft has setup a contest using their Bing Rewards to win one of five Nokia Lumia 900's. The contest "costs" 10 credits for some reason to get a chance in the contest, which is basically nothing in terms of Bing credits.

The contest runs through the month of April ending on May 1st. The winners will be chosen on May 10th and winners will be announced a week later on the Bing blog and contacted directly before then.

Sounds like a cool little way to potentially win a device. Of course most of you will probably buy a device before then, so consider this a chance for second one.

Editorial Note: Microsoft Points are going to be more and more important to you future Windows Phone 7 users, which is why you may want to pay attention to today's tip!

Even though Bing Cashback was cancelled a few months back (shame as it was a great program), Microsoft has returned with a new, similar program called Bing Rewards.  It's technically in "preview" right now but you can still sign up and begin racking up credits as an incentive for using Microsoft’s Bing “decision engine”.

Microsoft Credits can easily be earned just by using Bing for all your searching needs, setting Bing as your homepage, making use of the feature-rich related searches, or just exploring the daily image’s information hotspots. A total of 250 credits are thrown your way just for signing up for the program. The "credits" can then be exchanged for "rewards" or even better, Microsoft Points, which can then be used in the Zune/Xbox Marketplace (more on that below).

So is there a catch? Of course there is...

Read more after the jump as we try to make sense of Microsoft's latest Bing incentive program!
