What is Microsoft rewards?

Microsoft Rewards is a way of getting paid while you search using a specific search engine called Bing. You can use any internet browser whether it is Chrome, Brave, or Microsoft Edge. Although, Microsoft Edge would be the best fit as it is quite popular as well.

You will be able to earn points for every search you make. However, there are certain conditions that you should keep in mind. 

You can earn 3 points for every single search, where 1 point will get you $0.001. There are two levels or statuses. In level 1, users will only be able to earn 50 points per day. No matter how many searches you have made, you will get paid for only 10 searches a day in level 1.

Whereas, you will reach level 2 if you achieve 500 points in a month. Reaching this level will let you earn 250 points per day, which means you will be paid for 25 searches per day at level 2.

So, isn’t it amazing to start earning by searching on the web?

  • Points fluctuation: It happens at certain times when users have reported a fluctuation in their points. Their points go up and down despite doing anything.
  • Unable to cash out: Some people have also complained about the ban while cashing out points. It mostly displayed that the user has violated the terms of service. Make sure you read the terms and conditions before getting into anything.
