 Sign Up For Bing Search To Earn Microsoft Points
22 topic by BMS - 09-24-2010, 08:29 AM - Boxden > XBOX ONE & 360 Lounge





Microsoft recently launched a tempting partner program for its Bing search engine. By installing the Bing toolbar (which appears to only be compatible with Windows rigs running Internet Explorer) and using it to search or taking part in daily promotions, you can earn Reward points. Notably, this form of fake currency can be easily exchanged for another: Microsoft Points.

The program allows you to trade in Reward points for Microsoft Points in 100-point denominations -- though it's unclear how quickly one can accumulate these points. We do know that installing the Bing toolbar earns you 250 points from the get-go, of which 200 can immediately be exchanged for $2.50 worth of Xbox bucks. So what's the catch? There doesn't appear to be one.

Update

It turns that there is a big fat catch for anyone living outside the United States, as Bing Reward Points are essentially worthless to anyone not a resident in the US. We tried to redeem the reward currency for MS Points, but hit a stumbling block when asked for a shipping address, which is locked to US only. Booooo, Microsoft! Booooooooo!

The other big catch is that they don't email you the points code immediately. It's mailed out within 8 to 12 weeks, also known as 2 to 3 damn months.
