Yes that's right! Microsoft actually pays you to use its search engine. As long as you have a valid Microsoft account, every search earns points. I'm just shy of a £5 Tesco gift voucher, almost entirely from Bing searches.

That's the good news! The bad news is that it has taken about 18 months, so it's not an overnight earner. Each search will earn you a few Microsoft Points and there's a limit per day to what you can make. There are odd jobs where you fill in surveys, give feedback, or click links. You can earn maybe 50-100 points a day, if they're all good days. The £5 voucher costs 7500 points. Ouch!

Is it worth switching to the engine completely to speed up? Nope! Bing is an inferior browser and you don't really get enough points to make it worthwhile. It's encouraging to see competition and actually alright for video searching (I'm a movie lover) but in terms of content it feels like a dinosaur, lacking a certain effectiveness to its search results and way behind the big G.

Maybe if you have some "skills" you could automate a few sneaky clicks every morning. That's for the extreme criminal masterminds of course. In any case, choosing Bing to search for points is a long haul for the diehard moneymakers rather than the part-timers, and only workable as an addition to seasoned online moneymakers as opposed to newbies. That's my two cents. Or Microsoft Points.

Hi @Zerorush

Thank you for posting this. I had no idea. I have Microsoft Edge and use it as well as some others for general Internet searching and stuff. I have noticed a medal icon but never gave it much thought. Turns out I have 10401 points. I have no idea how long this has taken to accumulate but there it is. Clicking on the medal icon takes me to Microsoft Rewards and various vouchers I can redeem. So I now have to decide between a £5.00 Tesco voucher or a £5.00 M&S voucher and buy myself something nice :D

Cheers,

I find that you need to complete the daily tasks with Microsoft Rewards, alongside the searches to make this anywhere near remotely worthwhile. I do that & make roughly £60 or £70 per year.

Hi @geebobuk

Thanks for letting us know this. I will do a few daily tasks and see how I get on.
If I can get £60 a year for a few tasks I will be happy :)

Hi there

Yes just make sure you are logged into your Microsoft Rewards account and you can realistically earn a couple of hundred points each day if you do 30 searches on desktop & 30 searches on mobile (3 points per search). You get bonus points for completing your first three day streak & then you get 150 bonus points each time you complete ten days in a row & you get a points bonus on your membership anniversary. I got 500 yesterday for my 4th anniversary.
