is in constant competition with Google to be the world’s most popular search engine. So, what is Bing doing to compete with Google? They’re paying their users with a free, membership program called Bing Rewards.

What’s Bing Rewards?

Bing Rewards gives gift cards, sweepstakes entries, coupons and more for performing ordinary searches. Basically, by using the Bing search engine, you are getting paid for what you’re already doing!

How Do I Earn Bing Rewards?

When you search through Bing, the site keeps tabs of your credits with a ticker in the top right-hand corner of your screen. The more you search, the more you will see that number go up.

Ways to earn:

  • Earn 1 credit for every 3 searches on your computer with up to 30 computer search credits available per day.
  • Earn 1 credit for every 2 searches on your mobile device with 10 mobile search credits available per day.
  • Earn up to 5 credits for various new tasks, introduced daily.
  • Earn credits for referring friends to sign up for Bing rewards.

It’s really easy to earn at least 50 credits per day, which puts you at almost 10% of the way towards the 525 needed for a free $5.00 Starbucks card!


How to Sign Up for Bing Rewards:

Joining Bing is super simple. Create an account via your Facebook or Microsoft account. You can also download the “Bing Bar” to search and earn credits through your mobile device.

After you join, you can immediately start earning credits. New members get 20 credits right off the bat–about 5% of the way to a free Starbucks card! I signed up and got to about 50 points within the first 5 minutes!

How Do I Redeem Bing Rewards for Gift Cards?

Bing offers a large selection of  gift cards to stores like Sephora, Starbucks and Amazon. The minimum reward to cash out typically falls around $5.00.

Is Bing Rewards Worth My Time?

While you won’t become a millionaire searching the web with Bing, you will be earning rewards every once in a while for what you’re already doing on your computer. It’s completely risk-free and a great way to capitalize on what you’re already doing. Sign up and try it out. It’s so worth it!
