What you need to know
- Bing Rebates is now generally available in the US.
- It makes finding cash back deals easier when using Bing.
- Ties in with your Microsoft Rewards account.
Microsoft is today announcing the general availability of its new Bing Rebates service in the United States, which makes finding cash back deals on the web much easier. Users searching the web for gifts using Microsoft Bing will be able to find deals from participating merchants directly on the search results page without needing to click into a website first.
Bing Rebates is powered by Microsoft Rewards, and features a very similar UI. Users will be able to register for cash back, and Microsoft will even feature deals and rebates that you can take advantage of directly on the Microsoft website.
The process is straightforward, too. Search for products like you normally would while signed in to Microsoft Bing, click on the search result that you're interested in that also has a cashback offer, and Bing will let you know that the rebates offer is being activated. Once you've purchased the item you're interested in, Microsoft will confirm the purchase was successful, and then you'll be able to transfer that money into your PayPal.
Give with Bing
Elsewhere, Microsoft has also announced that its "Give with Bing" service now includes over 1.4 million non-profit organizations across the globe. Microsoft Reward users can donate their points with Five with Bing, and through December 31, Microsoft is matching all donations. Microsoft says that over $1 million in points have been donated since the Give with Bing campaign started.
Give with Bing is also coming to other markets too, including the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, France, Italy, Germany, and Spain. You can sign up for Give with Bing here to get started today.
