Bing Rewards

Earn $100-200 with Bing Rewards

Have you seen the (oldish now) commercials where people are asked to compare the Bing and Google search engines in a blind test? In the commercials, Bing comes out as the winner, which is interesting because when I take the blind test,  Google usually wins, or at best it’s a draw. No matter, I love Bing Rewards.

It is probably the simplest of the rewards programs listed on MUTCs. Sign up. Search. Earn. Repeat. How easy is that? It’s as close to a pure search rewards program as you can get. You literally get paid to search as you normally do.

Bing will also throw in some features for you to check out or trivia games to play. For instance, I earned a quick point (called credit) when I clicked on a link they suggested to check out one of their new apps. I just looked at it for a second and I earned a point. Easy peasy.

How Easy is it to Make Money with Bing Rewards?

It’s the simplest get paid to site there is! Bing Rewards isn’t what I would call a high earning easy extra money program because it limits the number of credits that you can earn each day. In my case I earn a little over $100 a year in free gift cards. Because my husband Brad does this too, together we make $200 a year. What?! That’s all? Hold on. Yes, it’s a relatively small amount of money, but if you’re on the computer working all of the time like I am, it’s literally free money because I do nothing out of the ordinary. Besides, it all adds up, especially if combined with other easy extra cash activities.

If you’re not a Bing lover, using the search feature for a few minutes a day is an incredibly easy, non-time consuming way to make money online. I search. I get my credits. I redeem them for one of their rewards.

My fav is the free Starbucks gift card. I promptly combine it with other Starbucks discounts (That’s a separate post) and enjoy free Starbucks all year long. When I’m feeling generous I give the gift cards as presents. When I’m not, I make my husband give me his free gift cards. Just kidding. Maybe. Okay, sometimes. However you chop it, Bing Rewards is so easy it should be a part of everyone’s online money making arsenal.

Bing Rewards is Good for Free Gift Cards. What about Cash?

You don’t actually earn cash with Bing Rewards, you earn free gift cards. The gift card selection is decent with Amazon, Starbucks, and Xbox Live, Sephora, Fandango, Hulu and others.

Can I Earn Money Fast With Bing Rewards?

Here’s the thing with Bing Rewards. Depending on how many credits you are allowed to earn per day (this can vary by user based on a formula that only Bing knows) it can take can take up to six weeks of regular searches to achieve maximum earning potential. That can be a drag. Speaking from personal experience, the delayed gratification made me a lazy Bing searcher. It probably took me about four months. However, once I felt that high of redeeming my first free Starbucks gift card (not to mention the caffeine buzz), I was hooked. Now I earn regularly each month by intentionally making sure that I use the Bing search engine for two minutes of my daily searches. There are lower tiered rewards (think free Redbox movie rental), that can be reached quickly, but I would encourage everyone to stay the course and maximize their earnings.
