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.
There’s a Microsoft page that talks about Bing Rewards for mobile. On Android and iOS there are dedicated Bing search apps that will now give you credit. The page says ‘coming soon to Windows Phone’.
It appears that Microsoft is rolling out Bing Rewards for mobile to Windows Phone right now. We’ve received multiple tips from users that doing searches with Cortana/Bing on Windows Phone 8.1 is now giving them credits.
You can head to Bing Rewards Dashboard to see your current status and the available number of credits. You’ll also notice a new ‘Mobile search’ section that helps you keep track of the Bing Rewards credits you earn on your phone. We haven’t been able to earn any credits yet on our phone, which makes us think that Microsoft is rolling this feature out.
Bing Rewards is only available to those in the United States. Rocking Windows Phone 8.1? Let us know if you’ve been able to earn credits on your phone!
Thanks for the tip everyone!
