Microsoft has come up with a new way to increase the usage of its browser, Edge, and search engine, Bing. The Microsoft Reward was earlier limited to US only but has made its way to India now. It enables users to earn just by searching on Bing from Microsoft Edge. Users can redeem them for Amazon and Flipkart gift cards.
The deal was first spotted by a Desidime user and has been confirmed by a few people. So, how can you get an Amazon or Flipkart gift card for free via Microsoft Rewards? We will check but before that let’s know what Microsoft Rewards is exactly.
What is Microsoft Rewards?
Microsoft Rewards is a completely free program that allows you to earn for doing your daily activities. Whenever you search on Bing, buy anything from the Microsoft store, or participate in polls or quizzes, you earn points that you can redeem for some specific brand’s gift card. All you need to do is just sign in and search, it’s that simple.
Do note that Microsoft Rewards works only on systems running Windows 10 or above. Microsoft Rewards was earlier known as Bing Rewards. For every search, three points are added to your rewards account.
Oh, and if you or someone from your family owns an Xbox console, you can earn points by completing a few tasks on the console.
How to Get Amazon and Flipkart Gift Cards Free From Microsoft
To get free Amazon or Flipkart gift cards from Microsoft, you need to earn points on Microsoft rewards. For that, you need to create an account on the Microsoft rewards website. Now, all you have to do is open Microsoft Edge and log in with the same account that you used to sign up for rewards.
You just need to change your default browser from Google to Bing in order to gain points quickly. You will get points for each search that you do on Microsoft Bing. You can redeem your 400 points to grab a Rs 25 Amazon or Flipkart voucher. Each day you can earn only 33 points which means that it will take you a minimum of 13 days to grab these vouchers.
Once reached the milestone, just redeem them and Microsoft will send you a mail along with your gift voucher. If you do not wish to grab a voucher, you can donate the amount to charity.
There is a perk for those who plan to use it regularly. You can reach to next level by using it on daily basis. Once reached level 2, you can earn 100 points per day which means the voucher can be yours in just four days.
Further, if you are someone who is not much into shopping, you can grab a Rs 250 BookMyShow gift card by redeeming 4000 points.
