Use Bing Rewards, Get Microsoft Points for Zune & XBOX
If you have ever wished that Microsoft’s Bing Rewards program offered you the chance to get free Microsoft points, today may be your lucky day. Going forward those who let Microsoft take a look at how they search, will be awarded credits that they can in turn redeem for Microsoft points aka, currency for Zune and XBOX.
From The Bing Team:
“Once you join Bing Rewards you’ll regularly receive offers available via your Bing Bar. Offers may include searching on Bing, trying Bing features, or simply learning new things about the world. As you earn credits, check out the Rewards redemption center where you can redeem your credits for a wide selection of rewards including Microsoft Points (rejoice Xbox, Zune, and Games for Windows users!), charitable donations (including DonorsChoose.org ,Teach For America, and Summer Search), gift cards, and more. The Rewards redemption center provides hundreds of items, with new rewards being added regularly.”
Of course we just know most people will donate those credits to a worthy cause. Won’t your dead ZuneSpring reader? Get it on some of that free points action by signing up today.
It took me 3 bingbar installs and an hour of my life but I finally got it.
What I would do for free money…
What they don’t mention is that you are limited to 30-100 point transfers (and I think they send it to you by mail)
Yeah I just started doing this, took me only one install lol, but anyways do they send your rewards through mail, because I already earned 200 Microsoft points, wouldn’t it just be easier for them to add two bucks to your account rather than mail you two bucks.
Also, noticed the Bing Bar seems to be a Preview, so is this an actual final product or is this something they are currently just trying out?
(Also side note whether it be Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox, the Bing Bar seem to really slow the browser to slow down and often freeze….)
I detest any kind of tool bar in my browser so I can’t comment on the slow ness of it. Windows Live essentials did go final a few weeks ago, so I believe it is final.
