Most of us perform multiple internet searches every day. We Google, Bing, Baidu, or use another search engine.
Imagine getting paid to do that.
Well, you sort of can.
Earn Points for Searching the Internet
Using Bing for a few searches a day can earn you Microsoft Rewards Points. You can redeem those points for items such as Minecraft Minecoins, donations to charities, sweepstakes entries for Microsoft prizes, and gift cards.
All you need to do is:
- Set up a Microsoft Rewards account
- Use Bing for your internet searches
There are two levels of Microsoft Rewards membership tiers: Level 1 and Level 2.
- Level 1 members may earn 5 points per search per day, up to 50 points a day (10 searches). They also earn 1 point per dollar spent with Microsoft.
- Level 2 members may earn up to 250 points per day from Bing searches. However, this is limited to 50 searches per day: 30 from the Bing desktop version, and 20 from the mobile. They also earn 10 points per buck spent through Microsoft.
To earn Level 2 status, you must earn 500 points each month.
You can earn extra points by voting in polls, playing trivia games, and other stuff like that. It’s somewhat similar to Swagbucks in that way.
I prefer Google over Bing. But once I reach I hit my maximum points for a day (or need to really dive deep into a topic), then I switch over to Google.
Gift Card Brands
Some of the travel- and everyday-oriented gift card brands include:
For those of us who frequently search the internet every day and want to earn some points in the process, Bing and Microsoft Rewards can earn us some gift cards (or Minecraft whatchamahoosits), charity donations, or Microsoft sweepstakes entries in the process.
Many of the gift card options are helpful for those of us who enjoy traveling. Food delivery services can serve as an alternative (or substitute) for room service. Starbucks is, well, Starbucks. And Amazon and Target offer not only travel products but stuff we use everyday when we’re home.
