About Bing Rewards
In 2010, Bing Rewards was launched. The aim is to attract people to use the Bing search engine. People are allowed to earn reward points or credit when they search online using Bing and do the other tasks such as answering quizzes and surveys. You will be able to earn credit as long as your Bing rewards account is signed in on any device that you use for online.

If you buy items from the Windows store or take daily quests or quizzes, you are also able to get credits. You are able to accumulate and redeem the points as Microsoft Store gift cards, Starbucks gift cards or Amazon gift cards.
