Bing Rewards, the loyalty program of the search engine no one ever uses, will give you 100 miles for signing up.
You can sign up easily via Facebook (though Facebook is not required), and doing so does not give Bing permission to post to your account.
I’ve written in the past that Bing lets you earn miles for online search.
The programs you can redeem points in Bing Rewards for include:
- American Airlines AAdvantage
- Frontier Airlines EarlyReturns
- Hawaiian Airlines HawaiianMiles
- Icelandair Saga Club
- IHG® Rewards Club
- Avianca LifeMiles
- My BestBuy Rewards
- SVM FuelCircle
- US Airways® Dividend Miles
- Virgin America Elevate
- Virgin Atlantic Flying Club
(HT: Loyalty Lobby)
- You can join the 40,000+ people who see these deals and analysis every day — sign up to receive posts by email (just one e-mail per day) or subscribe to the RSS feed. It’s free. You can also follow me on Twitter for the latest deals. Don’t miss out!
Once you sign up, it is not clear as to where one can redeem those 100 free miles. Even in the T&C of the Bing offer, there doesn’t seem to be any information other than the generic text.
Anyone figured out how to snag the 100?
Not available in my region 🙁
Not available in St. Louis apparently…
Unfortunately, it looks like you only get 20 credits when you sign up. You need to earn 400 credits to redeem for 100 miles.
Thanks for the hat tip about the topic:
Or I should say thanks for the lack of the hat tip.
Looks like you have to enroll through the targeted email from points.com and not already be a member. I could be wrong but that’s my gut feeling on this one.
As others reported, only 20 credits where you need 400
There’s an in-depth discussion of this over at Milepoint.com
That’s where the bloggers found out about this.
@Max goodness, it was not meant as a slight in any way. If you click on the link in the post above, to where I say that I’ve written before on using Bing to earn miles, you will see that my first post on this links directly to that very thread on Milepoint of yours! Here I hat tipped Loyalty Lobby which is where I first saw the 100 mile signup offer. If that was in your thread too I simply hadn’t seen it. Best, Gary
great way to save expiring miles –if you can get up to 400
It’s actually easy to get to 400 when all you need to do is ‘search’ something and with the BING window offering trending news you just need to click on them, every 2 clicks you get 1 point. You’re only able to get so many per day, took me about 2 weeks (10 biz days) to get to 400. Followed the Redeem Points windows and got 100 miles posted later that same day.
If you’re going to ‘search’ anything why not use Bing?
@flyincajun: Did you really write “If you’re going to ‘search’ anything why not use Bing?” How about “Because it’s a second-rate search engine.” Why not say, “If you’re going to buy a tablet, why not buy a Microsoft Surface?” 170 million iPad owners likely wouldn’t agree.
A few miles here and there are certainly useful to keep an account active, but won’t get you to Asia on CX in business.
Actually, don’t frequent flier miles seem like a poor use for these? if 475=$5 on Amazon and 385=100 miles, you’re valuing miles at 4 Amazon cents per mile.
“took me about 2 weeks (10 biz days) to get to 400. Followed the Redeem Points windows and got 100 miles”
Awesome – 10 days for 100 pts!!!!
This offer is a no-go. Wish I had read the comments first.
@JD: Actually, I prefer bing to the competitor(s). I always look forward to their photo of the day, and their search results seem just as good as the others to me… with less advertising.
It’s just hilarious that Microsoft is bribing people to use their search engine.
