    Microsoft Rewards offer in UK


    I believe Bing Rewards, now renamed as Microsoft Rewards have previously been available to US users, or at least those who set up their PCs as if they were in the US.
    Yesterday, I was offered the chance to enrol, although I have read that the service opened in May for the UK, I cannot recall the opportunity previously.
    It seems ridiculously easy to cheat, at least doubling available points notched up on the daily offers, but somewhat flaky on getting searches to score, unless done thru Cortana!
    When I searched Microsoft Rewards thru Cortana, ironically, I got this:

    - despite the Rewards points, and badge showing on the same page. If I use Cortana for 3 more searches today, I'll be 70 points shy of level 2!

    I've been getting reward points for a while now through searches via edge and doing some of the quiz's, never used Cortana to get search points. My understanding as well was it was just for the USA so was quite surprised when it was offered to me, got nearly 2,000 points at present but have no idea what I'm saving for.

    Cortana just uses Bing (in Edge) to search - and whenever eligible, earns rewards points, however searching with Bing in Edge sometimes misses the rewards points, even if below the daily quota.

    There are Sweepstakes you can enter - such as Surface Pro monthly draws - It seems that there are UK winners for this each month May-July for this published so far.

    The rules are here:
    Official Rules - Microsoft International Sweepstakes

    It pays to build up the points if you want to enter the Sweepstakes, The greater the number of points traded, the chances to win go up exponentially!

    I've never missed the points. Its the first thing I do in the morning lol, I do the searches (in Edge) until I max out for the day, then do the quizzes and the click on "extras" (20 to 40 more points a day). Been doing this since it started and have redeemed over $100 worth of points so far. Spent it all on silly stuff, games and game enhancements, donated a few. I just finished a survey for the rewards program and suggested they add more and different organizations to donate to. Have 7637 points as we speak, I'll be able to get another $10 card sometime next week or so. I love the rewards program!

    "I've never missed the points. Its the first thing I do in the morning lol, I do the searches (in Edge) until I max out for the day, then do the quizzes and the click on "extras" (20 to 40 more points a day)."

    Same strategies here plus Edge browsing bonus. I'm nearing 100,000 lifetime points. Have redeemed mostly for one yr of unlimited Skype phone calling (twice), very handy for hands free calling while doing tech support for friends and click to call numbers on websites (can work while listening to Muzak on hold; lol). Also, the $5 Amazon gift cards add up quickly too and there's always something there to buy. Free money with free enrollment is my kind of good program.
