The Almighty Dollar: Use Bing to search to earn points to redeem



I've been using Bing Rewards for a few months now, not very consistently because again I don't have Internet at home. Now Bing will give you some "Daily Offers" which are just either a 3 question quiz or a few links to click on and you'll earn credits for completing the "Daily Offers" on Bing Rewards. The amount of offers you get per day varies. Bing also gives you rewards points for every two searches you do on your computer, up to fifteen credits per day. Bing will also reward  you for every two searches that you complete on your mobile device, up to 10 points a day. Bing Rewards also has tiers of status. You either have Member status, which is basically just joining and using Bing Rewards. Silver status involves completing the "Welcome to Rewards tour", redeeming your first credits for a reward, and earn 200 lifetime credits. To obtain Gold status, you have to complete 150 searches per month to maintain Gold status and earn 750 Lifetime Credits and when you acquire Gold status, you will receive a 10% discount when redeeming your points for rewards.

Redeeming is quite simple as you click on redeem and depending on your reward, they'll send you an email on how to redeem  your reward. I've always opted for Amazon.com gift cards because they'll send you and email with the confirmation number and claim code to redeem your reward. Amazon.com gift cards never expire which is another reason I consistently choose Amazon.com gift cards as my reward. 

Rewards include:

  • Outlook Ad-Free for 3 months
  • Gamestop Gift Card
  • Starbucks Gift Card
  • Hulu 1-month free
  • Donate to Boys and Girls Club
  • Donate to Teach for America
  • Skype Credit
  • Skype Unlimited
  • Xbox Live Gold Membership
  • Windows Store Gift Card
  • Xbox Store Digital Gift Card
  • Movie Rentals
  • Microsoft Apparel and Gifts
  • Groove Music Pass
  • Sweepstakes Entries
Rewards change sometimes but I average $5-10 a month throughout the year using Bing Rewards. I use Amazon.com to buy everyday things and I can save and invest my cash. It may not be a lot of money but every little bit helps.
