Microsoft has launched a reward scheme for users to search Bing over Google

Microsoft has launched a reward scheme for users to search India Tv

To sign up for the scheme, you just need to register on the Microsoft Rewards page. This doubles if you are using Edge, and Microsoft says you can "earn points when you actively browse the web with Microsoft Edge". Well, look no further because now you can get rewarded for the products you use nevery day, with Microsoft Rewards, which now nearly live in the United England! At level 1 you earn 3 points per Bing search, but this maxes out at 30 points per day.

The Rewards points can later be redeemed for music and movies.

The publication notes that users will be able to spend your points on gift cards Xbox, minutes talking on Skype and other services.

Any searches you make that day after earning maximum points won't earn you anything.

Oil drops after OPEC-led output cut extension falls below expectations
The real problem is that OPEC's oil cap wasn't cutting into global oil inventories quickly enough. Despite the OPEC deal, we still do not see the strong drive that might lead price to rocket.

The feature is similar to what Pinterest has been working on, and would allow Bing users to easily find items even from complex images.

In effect, this new programme is much the same thing, and it's coming to France, Germany and Canada "in the coming weeks and months as part of the worldwide roll-out". If you earn at least 500 points per month - i.e.by using Bing a lot - you can jump to level 2 which increases this to 150 points per day.

You can enter competitions for 200 points, and be in with a chance of winning an Xbox One S or a Surface Pro. We've covered Microsoft Rewards in the past in our How To: Get Xbox Live Gold for free article. Once on Chrome, you can max out the points you can get using Bing in Chrome as well. It's one of a number of ways Microsoft attempts to convince consumers to use its search engine, alongside setting it as default in Microsoft Edge and promoting it throughout Windows 10.

You can set a reward as a goal, and then keep track of your progress.
