Microsoft pays users certain forms of rewards for using its services and purchasing its products. Users earn rewards, for instance, by merely staying signed in to their Microsoft Account while using Bing Search. Similarly, when users buy some hardware/software products from the Microsoft store, they earn the corresponding amount of rewards back into their Microsoft account.
You can then redeem Microsoft rewards through multiple methods, such as gift cards, donations, and more. If you spend more time in the Microsoft ecosystem, these rewards come in handy. For instance, you have a simple option to redeem your rewards for gift cards that would get you Xbox games or in-app purchases. It can also give you entries to sweepstakes.
Microsoft Rewards earned through search are then turned into donations. With the help of that, you can donate to a cause you support.
Besides, Microsoft allows users to track progress around gift cards, sweepstakes, and donations to charity. If you were previously a Bing Rewards member, your account has already transitioned automatically to Microsoft Rewards.
According to an official roadmap entry, Microsoft is also extending Microsoft Rewards to work and school accounts. As a result, users with enterprise account will have the ability to earn Microsoft Rewards points when signed into select Microsoft 365 services, including Microsoft Search in Bing.
