Ways of Earning Money Through Microsoft Rewards

Microsoft rewards

The best thing about the Microsoft program is that there are many ways you can earn points. If you are not interested in one way, you can try out different. Here are some of the best ways that can bring you free stuff.

Daily Sets

The daily sets are the collection of three activities that change regularly to help you with extra points. Maybe they are not worth more than ten points but contain super quick and easy activities like taking a poll, taking a short quiz, or searching the Web using Bing. If you are not interested in doing anything else on the program, you should at least take the advantage of the Daily Sets. By completing quick tasks that will take you not more than five minutes, you can earn 30 points, thus 900 points/ month!

Web Browsing Through Bing

We all use Google to search the web, but remember, using Bing can earn us points and points means free money. So, if you use Bing search engine for searching the web, you can get 3 points per search.

Using the Microsoft Edge Web Browser

If you don’t like Internet Explorer, don’t worry. Microsoft Edge is totally different, it’s fast and quick and also comes with a very clean interface. If you download this browser in your smartphone and use it for searching the web and all, you can earn some points too. But don’t forget to sign in to your Microsoft account as the points will be added to your total every time you use the browser. Using the browser means actually using the browser. You can’t just leave it open overnight and expecting to earn points. As simple as it is, it won’t work.

Shop with Microsoft Store

If you shop from their official store, you can earn some points too. The program home page sometimes shows some special offers that will give you bonus points for purchasing specific items. So, it’s a good idea to check onto those offers every now and then to see what’s new.

Random Activities

The Microsoft Rewards’ homepage changes almost every day. Thus, in addition to daily sets, you can find more tasks that offer multiple ways to earn points. For example, playing quizzes can get you 30 more points and some of them rely on searching on the web for an answer. Use Bing to get even more points.

How Does Microsoft Rewards Review Program Works?

To be honest, the credits or points you earn aren’t worth much and their real price value varies with the prizes catalog and also depends on the level you are. Maybe you will need only 200 points for a sweepstakes entry, but you will need at least 5,000 points for a $5 gift card.

After picking what you want, just tap the Redeem button and the prize will be waiting for you in your inbox in within a day or so. Finally, the reward program is 100% legit, and I, personally think that you should give it a try!

Microsoft Bing Rewards for UK Residents

Microsoft Rewards program is now accessible from UK residents. The way it works in the UK is almost as same as it works in the US country.
