Microsoft is making it easier for mobile web-based users of its Bing Rewards service to earn points and redeem them for items and more with an update to its interface.
In case you have not heard of Bing Rewards before, it's a free Microsoft program for US residents only that encourages them to use the company's Bing search service. People who sign up for the program can collect points when they use Bing which can then be exchanged for items like e-gift cards and more.
If you are using Bing Rewards from your mobile phone web browser, Microsoft says you will be able to see these improvements:
"First off, as soon as you go to Bing Rewards on your phone, we show you your current balance and some great Bing experiences for the day — that naturally earn you credits. Just tap to start earning. Scroll down a little further and you will see rewards suggested for you. We'll show you things we think you'll love that you can redeem credits for."
"Sometimes we all need a little motivation, so we'll also show you how far you've got to go to reach the next level with a new status card. And let's not overlook the gratification bit. We've just made redeeming credits faster and easier than ever before. Just tap on a gift card, confirm your email and your reward is on its way!"
Microsoft has also updated its Bing Rewards app for iOS and Android with these improvements, but we have yet to see these changes to the Windows Phone 8.1 version.
