Have you started to take advantage of Bing Rewards yet? It's a fantastic way to earn gift cards, and even donate to your local school just for doing something that most of us do hundreds of times of day...searching the web!
Signing up for Bing Rewards is super simple it take less than 2 minutes and you can do so using with your Microsoft Account or Facebook.
Much like a frequent flyer programs which reward you for flying, Bing Rewards gives you credits for searching the web using Bing as well as when you take advantage of offers which help you discover the many ways Bing can help you get things done, such as with Skype. As a matter of fact right now they are offering 100 Bing Rewards Credits just for signing up for a new Skype account.
Earning credits, which you can turn into those gift cards or school donations are super simple. You can check the Bing Rewards Dashboard to see the number of credits you can earn for each Bing-related activity. Some of the offers which I’ve seen recently included searching the web (you earn more for mobile searches than PC-based), planning your next trip, and Exploring Bing. You can even earn additional credits by referring friends to Bing Rewards.
Through the Bing in the Classroom program you can donate your Bing Rewards credit to a local school. Schools can use these credits to purchase Surface tablets to be used in the classrooms. How cool is that?!
Instead of donating your Bing Rewards credits to a local school you of course can redeem them yourself, or you could even choose to do a little of both. Some of the most popular rewards include Xbox, Amazon, Applebees, Fandago, and Starbucks gift cards. You can also even turn your credits into airline miles, savings on gasoline, and hotel stays!You can also redeem points for entries into sweepstakes. Through July 21st there are two sweepstakes available, at very easy-to-reach credit thresholds.
The first sweepstakes which you can an enter is an Xbox One Titanfall Prize Pack for only 40 credits. This sweet prize pack includes an Xbox console, Titanfall limited edition wireless controller, Titanfall by Respawn & Electronic Arts, the Titanfall Season Pass and 12-month Xbox LIVE Gold membership.
You can also get 10 entries into a $500 Toys R' Us eGift Card sweepstakes for just 40 credits, and there will be 3 lucky winners for this one! My kids sure would be quite happy if I won one of these. Just think about how many Christmas gifts you could cross off your list with one of these little gems!
