    I've been getting points for a while, but I usually end up entering a sweepstakes before I can get enough points to get anything.

    Uh... Yeah... :P

    I used to get MS points, but lately been saving up for $5 Amazon gift cards. I've set up all 3 laptops at home so that Bing is logged in to my account. That way every search anyone makes adds to my account faster.

    Also, one thing I've been wishing for is Bing Rewards on our phones.

    It pays for my Starbucks :) Woulda been awesome if you could use the MS points for apps.... Microsoft's ecosystem is really inconsistent with what you pay with. Zune and Xbox you need points, but everything else is cash.

    They even had a sweepstakes to win a Lumia 900 a couple of months back.

    I'm prone to waiting for more interesting one-off rewards for my points (1488 and counting).

    yeah it be nice on the phone, id have allot more points for sure ... well allot more . i wouldn't be at ZERO! lol

    you would think the phone would be one of the first to get it. but I think the point of this is to create awareness for BING and considering its your only option on WP they dont give points. think it would cost them to much $$ lol

    I think this has been out for a few years already, at least in the US. Even before Microsoft's search engine became Bing, Microsoft's Live Search had it's own similar reward program.

    Holy crap, how did you accure 9200 points? I just passed 400 and I've been working on it for a bit. I don't do a lot of searching though, I guess.

    I use the points I accrue to get MS points - they're great for buying DLC add-ons for Xbox games or Indie games - a lot of which only run 800 points or so.

    Enjoying Red, Dead - Undead Nightmare with my last points purchse. :D

    Why is all the good stuff Microsoft does always stay limited to the states? Heck not even Canada and we are right there!

    That's what annoys me about the program. You don't get points for using Bing on ANYTHING other than the main Bing site. It doesn't even work on my (desktop) browser search bars. For this reason, I require extra clicks to get the points and I just don't feel its worth the effort.

    I just made bing.com my home page and checked off for it to keep me logged in. No extra effort there. ;)

    If you are a gold member there are discounts for most if not all items. I use 100 points for Redbox. It is a free DVD, but you have to pay the 30 for BluRay but still nice.
