Most people that use my phone always bug me about using Bing. I use Bing because I prefer it over Google and Yahoo! and other search engines for many reasons. But it seems that I'm in a minority.
Bing has a program that can help you get free stuff for doing next to nothing though! That's one of the advantages of them not being as big as the other guys.
Bing's program is called Bing Rewards. The title of this blog post was chosen over "How to get free Bing points" simply because this method is more so for those who want to make the most of the program or want to keep using their other search engine. If that's the case, this is the blog post for you.
In order to keep being in the program, the catch is that you have to keep using Bing to search. It doesn't have to be your default search engine or homepage, but you do have to do a minimum amount of searches to keep your rep with them strong. I have multiple Hotmail accounts and when I began using one over the other, I switched Bing Rewards accounts and they continue to remind me that not using the other will forfeit my gold status. Gold status in the program is nice because you can get more points (I believe) and get discounts on rewards in the shop. I am currently a gold member and it didn't take me long to get there following these methods.
Note that this is for those who are already enrolled in the program. Enrolling is 100% free. You simply need a Facebook account and/or a Hotmail (Outlook) account. Visit Bing's webpage to sign up.

This is a pretty cool page. It is a "to-do" list and seems to be updated daily. Complete the offers on this page, usually always free things, to get more points. Usually it takes 3 searches to get 1 point; however, with this page, you can get 3 points sometimes just from clicking one link.
Another way to get more points is to check out this page.
Oh, I apologize; did I send you to the Bing homepage? ;) I most certainly did. How can you get more points just by being on this page? Easy.
For those of you who don't use Bing as your default search engine, this is a great way to rack up points daily and keep your status as a gold member. Plus, you'll be able to stay current with the latest gossip and news!
See in the lower left hand corner with all the pictures of people like Rick Warren and Stephen Hawking? These are "trending topics". This is a relatively new online term for topics discussed online. Basically, this is what is being most searched on Bing for the day. These changes at least once every day and sometimes twice or more a day. The only exception to this is something that affects the planet like a nuclear devastation where the same story can be posted for days upon days. Even then, the stories usually change. And Bing doesn't seem to care if it was an old story you viewed.
Visit Bing's page once every day. To be on the safe side, just do it every morning when you wake up or when you first use a web browser. Click every single one of these trending topics. It doesn't mater if you read them or click any links in the search query, just click the images then go back to the Bing page. Once that's done, do a few more searches for random stuff. Anything you can think of. This alone will help you keep your status and rack up points, very slowly though.
The best way to use Bing to get free stuff is to use it as your sole internet search engine. I've been using it for about 2+ years now and have gotten over 2,000 points in my time there. In the past two months alone, I've gotten over 400 points just by using it.
For me, the best reward are the Xbox points because I actually use them and get the most out of them. As you can see, I've got 900 points just sitting around waiting for me to collect. That's two 400 point cards for free! All I've been doing is exactly what I told you guys in the above post.
As Bing gets bigger, we may see drastic changes or a complete removal of this system, so take advantage of it while it lasts! The only reason why Bing has such a program is so that they can rise to the ranks of Google and Yahoo! who have been well established for years.
