    Bing made an update to Bing Rewards. Now it is separates PC (Up to 15 a day) and Mobile (Up to 10 a day) searches. With my Nokia Lumia 822 running the 8.1 Developer Preview it is integrated with Bing Rewards and you can see the credits increase with every 2 searches using the search button. Has anyone else noticed this change?

    The Bing Rewards app was announced at the end of January for Android and iOS. Good things happen when we are patient!

    If you are having trouble visit Bing Rewards on your phone.

    Searches from my mobile don't appear to be changing my search count. Wonder what I'm doing wrong.

    I noticed it today, I'll have to do a search on the phone to see.

    Edit: No credits for mobile search.

    Earlier today, I searched using IE on my Lumia 1020 - I have an account with Silver status and today, it was 15 credits max to earn. I just checked again, and there is a new promotion - every Tuesday in May search and earn twice your daily credits.

    Maybe because I used IE on my phone it is registering it as a PC search, and thus giving me the 15 credits per day (instead of 10)...

    I just used Bing on IE with WP8.1 initially and it would search as it would on desktop.

    *How do I upload a photo? I want to upload a screenshot showing the separate searches with mobile and desktop.

    Yeah, I see the mobile counter, it just sits at 0 for me, regardless of how many searches I do on my phone.

    If you're using IE on WP to launch Bing, you need to switch to desktop version in settings first.

    It's not officially supported - another great example of Microsoft ignoring Windows phone users

    Yeah when you set it to desktop version, search Bing like you normally do. You should see your profile and everything. This should connect your Bing Rewards account to your phone and when you complete searches it should count as a mobile search. I also turned off Cortana so I have the Windows Phone 8 search button.

    Can you try searching from the search button? I turned Cortana off, but with Cortana on it should count. Searching via IE will probably count as desktop and searching with Cortana/Bing should count as mobile. When you get it to work, you will get an extra 10 credits!

    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

    I was able to successfully search using Cortana and have it count.

    You have to open bing from your phone, and tie your rewards account to your mobile device. Once I did that, I was able to successfully get points for searching on my phone.

    How did you tie your rewards account to your mobile device? I did the bing thing and it still didn't work. Pehaps it's only working for some people as MS starts to roll it out.

    Go to bing.com/rewards

    That should enable you to log in and tie your mobile to your account.

    it doesn't really let me "tie" anything. I'm just signing into my MS account, which then brings up my rewards dashboard as i would see it on my desktop, except its in my mobile IE browser. i then hit the search hardware button and do a few searches and it doesn't reflect in my dashboard after refreshing the IE page.

    All it does for me is log me into my Bing rewards account, not seeing any way to link my phone
