Bing rewards you with credits that are redeemable for a variety of products and services, including Skype credit, gift cards, Redbox rentals and Xbox services. You can earn Bing Rewards by searching the Internet with Bing and testing out new Bing features. To get started with Bing Rewards, you need to create a Microsoft account. Once you have an account, you can start earning rewards right away.
Earning Bing Rewards Credits
To earn Bing Rewards credits, you need to be signed in to your Microsoft account. You can also create an account for Bing Rewards using your Facebook login details. Bing Rewards can be earned whenever you search the Web using Bing, the Bing toolbar, by testing out new Bing features or services or by redeeming offers found on the dashboard page of Bing Rewards Central. To earn credits you must be logged in to your account. If you search the Web using Bing without signing in, your searches will not count towards credits. You can ensure you're logged in by looking for the Bing Credit Counter located at the top-right of the screen.
Microsoft may limit the amount of credits you can earn per day by searching the Web using Bing. To earn additional credits, you can redeem credit offers found on the dashboard page of your Rewards account. Offers may include signing up for a product or service or entering a contest or promotion. You can also find offers from third parties. Visit your account dashboard on a daily basis to view the offers that are available for you; they can be updated at any time.
Referring Friends and Family
Referring friends to join Bing Rewards can be another way to earn credits quickly. You can refer friends by having them sign up using a link that is specific to your Bing Rewards account. Once your friends have signed up, your account will be credited within 10 days. Share your referral link with your Twitter and Facebook social network to increase the chances of obtaining a referral. If you don't have a Facebook or Twitter account, you can send the referral link to your friends and family via email. To see if your account is eligible for referral credits, visit your Bing Rewards account dashboard.
Bing Tours and Redeeming Credits
If you've redeemed all your available offers and reached the limit for Web search credits, you can earn additional credits by completing a Bing tour. Bing tours can be found under the "Tours" tab while logged in to your Bing Rewards account. Tours show you useful Bing features and reward you with credits once you've completed them. After you accumulate enough credits, you can cash them in for rewards by visiting the "Redeem" page in your Bing Rewards account. The amount of credits required for each reward varies depending on the product or service. You can view your progress towards each reward on the "Redeem" page.
