Bing Rewards Account Levels

The Bing Rewards program added new membership levels to help earn more points and get discounts.  The pictures below are the 3 membership levels: Member, Silver, and Gold.  The left column is the requirements and the right column is the rewards.

The basic member level is where everyone starts.  There isn't much that needs to be said about this level.


The next step up is the silver level, this is what I have achieved so far.  You must complete the welcome to rewards tour, Welcome to Bing tour, and pick a reward to set as your goal.  These steps take about 5 minutes to complete.  You must have also earned 200 credits over the lifetime of your account.  This means that you have done 400 searches and received 200 credits for those searches.  You don't have to still have the credits or have had them all at once.  Once you reach this level you get 50 credits added to your account and can start working towards the next level.


The final membership level is gold and I am almost at this level.  You must redeem credits for your first reward, if you bought some Microsoft points with credits this step is already done.  Over the lifetime of your Bing Rewards account you must have earned 750 total credits, I don't believe the 50 bonus from silver counts towards this.  The biggest hurdle for me is completing 150 rewardable searches, up to 20 per day.  I am almost there for this month, but there is a slight catch.  If you complete 150 rewardable searches in April and then don't use the program as much in May, you will revert back to a silver membership.  Once you receive the gold membership you get 5% discounts on Microsoft Points/Xbox Live Gold subscriptions and 10% off of all other rewards.

All in all the rewards aren't really that fantastic, this would be the difference between spending 500 credits and 475 credits on 400 Microsoft Points.  However, the 25 credits saved could be a day or 2 of earning, so it is kind of nice.  The free 50 credits for earning silver is a nice touch, but you should also receive credits for earning and maintaining a gold membership level.

I hope this helped all of you out there that like to participate in the Bing Rewards program like I do.  All of the multiple Bing accounts that I get points from are currently silver memberships, so I will be getting some free DLC or games soon!

  3. This kind of language schools are aimed to keep your children learning about new languages as well as cultures.
    This is merely a reflection of the fact that people are on the lookout for a break from the stresses of life.
    Use old fabric to create puppets, monsters, and any other creatures that your child can imagine.

  6. Countless teenage parties have been spiced up by this funny
    little game, and countless adolescent mischiefs have amused
    millions of young people. There you have it, folks,
    in a nutshell: the chief feature of My - Space is that
    it's quick and easy enough to use that you can post a bulletin or check a friend's page and be done
    in the two minutes that it takes your boss to come over to your desk,
    suspicious that you're once again not working. However, for the next several miles until we got to our hotel, he smelled pretty dog-gone good, not.

  7. A lot of us who are under constant pressure tend to eat too much and do not take good care of their bodies.
    Then you'll have no trouble motivating yourself to do it. What I tell my clients is that they need to schedule their fitness time like it's a
    doctor's appointment.

  8. The advantage about the funny pictures is that you can watch
    them along with the family. These make great funny pictures,
    and can be as blatant as the example I just gave, or as simple as a spelling
    mistake. A few young superstars have made their name just from being spread across the internet in videos and photos.

  9. The fitness tips for motivation we've been discussing can be very powerful if you use them. One last thing that isn't mandatory
    but recommended is to set up a Pay - Pal account to process your
    payments. Just like with the above diet tips, you want to make sure that each
    fitness tip you incorporate into your routine is doable.

  10. The Butler Report ( is a world news summary website site which, in addition to headline
    news, publishes US and worldwide events not covered by mainstream media.
    Indeed, internet is the best source of because it is easily accessible and fast.
    They can also update news on their site as and when the event occurs

  13. It is considered to the start of the Arab Spring and would go a long way
    in forcing the politicians to effectively govern the country.
    Yet while viewers will inevitably make comparisons between Diane Sawyer and Katie Couric, they have very
    styles, as Diane Sawyer has more of a reputation for a 'harder'
    journalistic style. The reliable reviews on business and forecast about products and
    services.

  14. I've listened to this a dozen or more times and still find it delightful and sooooo original in concept. Office goers and people who are travelling often do not get time to read news from the newspaper or watch it to get good information they could subscribe for sports SMS alerts. It the radio was the only one that used to deliver the days news and weather updates.

  16. Bing Rewards is a scam. I reach redemption level, all of a sudden I find I'm banned, when I email them and say this is wrong, they insist I was using automation and not manually typing my queries.

    So, copy/pasting to search (aka RESEARCH) gets you banned... the day before they closed my account I had failed some questions on a test from an online course, so I RESEARCHED those questions in my default search engine (Bing) not even realizing their "sophisticated" system can't decipher a bot from copy/paste.

    I have been a loyal Bing user since before Bing existed and was known as MSN Search. I also own a Windows Phone. This will change when it comes time to buy a new phone. Good riddance Microsoft, you scam artists.
