I really don’t know what I did before the days of Internet searches. I don’t know about you, but I’m searching for something multiple times a day – that song lyric that I can’t quite remember, a recipe to make before those eggs go bad, how to get peanut butter stains out of clothing, whether or not moms are legally allowed to go on strike…
As it turns out, I can actually get REWARDED for all those online searches! I just signed up for Bing Rewards, where I’m earning credits for the searches I do every day anyway. It’s completely free to sign up, and there are a bunch of different things I can redeem my credits for – gift cards, sweepstakes entries, or I can even redeem credits for charitable donations!
Earning credits is really easy – all I have to do is search every day, which I do anyway (so why not get rewarded for it, right?) As a new member, I can earn up to 15 credits a day for searching on my computer, and up to another 10 credits a day when I do searches on my phone. There are also bonus opportunities for extra credits – I get 20 bonus credits when I sign in with my existing Microsoft account (including my Xbox account), and I can earn up to 500 credits by inviting my friends.
If I decide to redeem my credits for gift cards, there are a lot of options available – Amazon, Burger King, Game Stop, Domino’s, iTunes, and lots more. If I’m feeling altruistic, I can use my credits to support organizations like Boys & Girls Clubs of America, Kids in Need Foundation, or even help my school earn Surface bundles.
Or I can use my credits to enter one of the sweepstakes that the Bing Rewards team launches every couple of months – there are four great sweepstakes going on through March 2, 2015! Bing Rewards members can redeem credits for an entry for a chance to win one of three $500 Sephora Gift Cards or one of three $500 Game Stop Gift Cards (my husband and sons would be overwhelmed with joy if I won $500 for us to spend at Game Stop!) There’s also a sweepstakes to win one of three blazing fast Surface Pro 3 tablets or one of three Limited Edition Call of Duty ®: Advanced Warfare Bundles!
So if you’d like to get rewarded for the searches you do every day too, make sure you check out Bing Rewards!
