    Sorry. I'm not 100% sure what steps I followed. I just went to m.bing.com and was able to log into my rewards account from my phone and my searches started working. I had to approve the connection (I think I used Facebook) and it just started working.

    This really does need to have seamless integration into Cortana... and Bing Search for that matter (since not everyone wants location services sucking away at their battery ALL THE TIME).

    Nothing I do will make those mobile searches register either. WP users should just get these 10 points automatically by default each day until they resolve this.

    What is asinine is that Bing Mobile rewards are only available to Windows Phone 8.1 only, an OS version that is not even officially released. MS I am losing faith in you!

    Same as before, just takes me to my dashboard with no additional mobile steps. Maybe its a limited rollout or it works differently to how I assume it should.

    actually searching on the phone does not earn any point. I think they still need to roll out backend

    This isn't true. I'm getting points for searching on my phone.

    Buy I did discovery that I've lost my gold status and my history is now gone, so I've emailed support.

    But I can verify that phone searches yield points.

    If you want to get rewards from your WP do the following:
    Open IE > click the 3 dots > settings > Website preference > Desktop Version
    click back button
    Go to Bing
    Log in to Bing as you would on your desktop using your MS account > check the "keep me signed in" box
    select your 3 dots > pin to start

    I hope they fix this soon. I should get reward points for searching with Cortana.

    Yes, but that won't score you the additional 10 points for mobile searches. Those searches only count toward the PC searches.

    It works, but it counts toward rewards via desktop. Bing rewards now gives an extra 10 points for mobile browsing, but only on Android and iOS. We're losing out on an additional 10 points a day by using Windows Phone. ☹

    Better to have something then nothing until MS gets off their azz for us.

    I think we'll have to wait until 8.1 becomes official before we get those sweet 10 extra points.

    It works if you have the 8.1 Preview (US).

    Not working for me with WP8.1DP on my L1520.

    You seem to be the only one who is confirming that it is working for them.

    I have the Preview and it still doesn't work for me. MS rolls updates to Bing in phases. Maybe you're in the first phase.

    I think just going to bing.com/rewards from your phone activates it when you log in. For me the searches did not instantly show but later I saw they did... could just be a small delay.

    I've been using Bing on IE this whole time before so not sure if that has helped. When this fully rolls out it'll be so convenient for everyone.

    wmpoweruser.com has confirmed this too.

    I tried with Cortana on and off, it doesn't seem to work, anyways if you guys have Windows 8 you should get this app it basically pays for itself Rewards Assistant app for Windows in the Windows Store
    The app just searches numbers 1, 2, 3,... shouldn't it search with words? I don't want to get blocked.

    I was trying to get this to work for me yesterday and never got the mobile counter to increase. Today I noticed when I clicked the mobile counter in IE on my desktop, it says that it is available for iOS and Android and is coming soon for WP.

    It also searches for words, I think popular now. First it searches for numbers and then words. Do you really think they would block if you use it? I paid for this app cause I really find it convenient. I use this app to make sure I don't miss out on the points, but I still use bing for my real searches.
