31 Ways to Earn Extra Cash Before Christmas: Bing Rewards (Day 7)
is a way to earn credits for searching online and participating in daily offers. By spending just a few minutes per day, you can easily earn a $5 Amazon gift card every month.
Here’s what Jennifer says about Bing Rewards:
My husband and I use Bing Rewards to save up for things like free Redbox codes, Amazon gift cards, Xbox Live passes, etc. It works very much like Swagbucks. You make a free account and for every 2 searches using Bing, you earn points. Points are redeemable for a whole list of prizes. There are other daily deals and specials to earn extra points. Plus, the more lifetime points you earn the more privileges you get. Imagine giving each each of your kids a few Redbox codes in their Christmas stockings for the movie of their choice on family movie nights! Jennifer
1. How Do You Sign Up?
and sign up for an account. It appears like a Facebook account is required and the signup process takes less than a minute to complete.
Once you’ve signed up, go to the Bing Dashboard and you’ll have a few different offers you can complete and ways to fill out your profile in order to earn some credits from the getgo. I was able to earn 25 credits just by completing these things.
2. How Do You Earn Credit?
Every day, log into your and do 30 quick searches. You’ll earn a credit for every two searches you do. You can also check your Bing Rewards dashboard to see if there is a daily offer to complete to earn you 12 more credits.
I like Bing Rewards because it has a cap on how many points you can earn a day, which is nice because it’s quick, easy, and done, and then you don’t have to dwell on it. I’ve been doing it for 3 months now. You get 1 point per 2 searches, so it’s not a gambling game like Swagbucks. I just click on “related searches” on the side until I hit my goal. From an email written by Cat who blogs at
3. How Much Credit Can You Earn Per Month?
You can earn 15 credits per day by searching (30 searches = 15 credits). Plus, you should be able to complete one or two daily offers each day to net you another 12 credits. This totals 480 credits in a typical month if you log in every day and earn 16 points. This gives you enough to almost earn a free $5 Amazon gift card in one month.
If you achieve Gold status (which you can achieve pretty easily by being an active member of Bing Rewards for two months), an Amazon gift card is only 475 credits — which makes it totally doable to earn one $5 Amazon gift card each month!
4. What Can You Get With Your Credit?
You can purchase Amazon gift cards, Starbucks gift cards, Groupon credit, Skype credit, Redbox rentals, and more! Plus, they also offer you the opportunity to donate your credits through DonorsChoose. Here’s what Cat says:
One of my favorite rewards is a DonorsChoose.org $5 gift card. DonorsChoose is a site where teachers can submit projects they would like funded for their classrooms and people or foundations can donate to them. My sister is a teacher in a lowincome elementary school and has posted a few projects to DonorsChoose. I told her I would alternate my Amazon gift cards with DonorsChoose ones–that was until Bing price dropped the DonorsChoose reward to 99 points! So instead of giving my sister’s class $5 for the project, they got $25. I’m throwing all my points at that until the promotion ends on 11/1.
5. Do You Have to Have Referrals To Really Make Bing Rewards Worth It?
Actually, no. In fact, you can only earn credits for the first 5 friends you refer. So this makes it fair for everyone — and those who have a larger social network won’t necessarily have any advantage over those who don’t have a big social media following.
Note: If you sign up, can you leave your referral link in the comments so that others can sign up under you? Update your comment to let us know when you’ve gotten five referrals. We want to help each other out as much as possible!
Have you used Bing Rewards before? If so, I’d love to hear about your experiences!

Why does it need to see my photos? I don’t like that. Was going to sign up, but think I’ll pass on this one. Still, thanks for sharing all the ideas. Things are really tight and I am always looking for more ideas. Still going through my bookshelves to find items to trade in at Amazon!

Thanks so much!

Here’s my referal link:
By poking around I figured out how to limit searchs to exclude “adult” material in my search results. It seems to automatically be set to a moderate screening process, but you can bump that up to a “strict” setting. Seems like a great feature to me!

Is anyone else not seeing their referrals come up? I know it says it can take up to ten days, but I wanted to check if this is the case with everyone that no one is showing up.
A couple people replied to my original post saying the signed up with my link and I asked my boyfriend to sign up with my link, so I KNOW he should be there, but he isn’t. I’m just hoping I haven’t been sending out the wrong link. ):

Thanks for the help guys! It’s much appreciated!

Three days in and loving how easy this is!

My referal link is:

Thanks for this!
Just started today. My referral link is:
It was REALLY fast to do 30 searches, and I also did a couple of the other dashboard tasks, so I already have 37 points. Even at the minimum 15 a day as a normal member, it comes out to $50+ a year in Amazon or Starbucks cards.

Seriously, are anyone else’s referrals not showing up yet?

I believe it takes up to 10 days for your referred people to show up in your account.

Yeah, up to ten days– I just didn’t think it would actually take ten days. Yesterday or the day before I asked if anyone had seen any referrals show up yet (nobody replied). I don’t have any, but I should have at least three. I was just curious if I had sent out the wrong link or something.

I referred my husband right after I opened mine (yesterday) and he still hasn’t shown up (he’s met 2 days of goals so far) so I guess it’ll just take time. Hopefully not too close to 10 days, eh?!




Here’s my link, if anyone cares to use it – Thanks!

This is awesome!
Here’s my link:


Should be a good complement to SwagBucks. Here’s my link. Thanks.

Finally just got around to signing up. Here is my referral link in case anyone else is still interested.

I am really late to the party, but I was concerned about the app requesting permission to my Facebook photos…BUT, I just went back and decided to look at again, and you can sign up using (or creating) a Microsoft Live account rather than Facebook. No photo request that way! I was really excited about this and now I feel better! 🙂
And in case anyone else signs up, thank you!!

I signed up under Kim. Thanks for posting this, I agree with others that said this along with Swagbucks will be nice! (Although it doesn’t have a ton of ways to earn I like, as the post said, its quick and simple!) My link is
