Some users report earning Bing Rewards credits through Windows Phone

270

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.

Official Snapdeal app gets much-needed refresh, now offering an immersive shopping experience

69

With over 18 million members, Snapdeal.com is India's largest online shopping site featuring a wide assortment of products from Indian and international brands in multiple categories.

While Snapdeal.com has had an official Windows Phone app since two years, it was a half-baked effort and hasn’t been updated much.

But as we’ve seen, 2014 has been a great year for official and marquee apps in India, and with their latest update, Snapdeal joins the fray.

Peggle 2 pops caps on Xbox 360, Nutjitsu coming to Xbox One tomorrow, more console news

25

May is a very back-loaded month for Xbox One and 360 releases. Coming up on May 20 we have the highly-anticipated Wolfenstein: The New Order from Bethesda, followed by Watch Dogs from Ubisoft on May 27 – certainly the highest profile games the One and 360 will see for months. That doesn’t mean gamers have to go without new releases this week and next, though!

Today the Xbox 360 finally gets Peggle 2 from Electronic Arts and PopCap, a timed exclusive that we formerly went crazy over on Xbox One. The One will have its own new downloadable game tomorrow, when Wahoo Studio’s Nutjistsu makes the trip from Windows 8. And Friday sees the retail release of Focus Home Interactive’s Bound by Flame on Xbox 360 (and Playstation 4 but not Xbox One, sadly). Head past the break for more details on this month’s console releases!
