Earning Amazon Gift Cards by Earning Bing Points!

(This is not a sponsored article.)

A few years ago, my husband introduced me to Bing Points. Bing.com, the search engine, allows you to create an account to earn points with.

Bing 1

How do you earn points? By doing searches. There are three different status levels: beginner, silver, and gold. Each level has a max of the amount of points you are allowed to earn.

Bing 2

Bing 3

Bing 4

The points can be redeemed for prizes: Microsoft Live points, Amazon gift cards, various charity donations, etc.

Since I’ve been collecting Bing Points, I have redeemed them for $3.00 and $5.00 Amazon gift cards. To date, overall, I have used them towards $392.86 worth of merchandise-$279.00 paid with gift cards, and $113.86 of real money.

Some of the highlights are:
College textbook $20.00 gift card; $0.26 real money
Almost $100.00 worth for DVDs $95.00 gift cards; $3.85 real money

To me, buying something off Amazon has become a game, and a lesson in delayed gratification. Earning the points towards gift cards has made getting my Amazon purchases more worthwhile.

    Bing Rewards is the best! I make at least $5 a month in Amazon gift cards! It’s kind of sad that they have to pay people to use their search engine, but I don’t care since we benefit from it!

      I wish they’d go back to the 30 points per day. But we (collective we) must have bit the hand that fed us.

    Never heard of this! Great tip. We shop from Amazon very regularly. Might as well be earning some gift cards searching when we’d be doing it anyway. Thanks!
