Bing is going to help you earn and take advantage of Bing Rewards – right from your phone. As of Wednesday, iOS and Android devices will be able to tap into these credits, which accumulate with searches done using Bing.
The same capability will also arrive soon to Windows Phone devices, and over the next several months nearly all of the Bing Rewards desktop features will be available on mobile experiences.
As the Bing Search blog explains, “Bing Rewards was designed to help you discover ways Bing can help you do the things that are most important to you. It allows us to recognize and appreciate our most consistent, loyal users with additional perks as a way of saying thanks for choosing Bing. You can earn credits by searching every day and then redeem them for great rewards including gift cards from top brands such as Amazon.com, Xbox, Skype, Fandango, and Dominos or donate your credits to a local school or charity of your choice.”
When you sign into Bing Rewards on your mobile phone using your Microsoft or Facebook account, you’ll see a new mobile optimized dashboard with customized offers. In addition to offers you would find on your PC, there is a new exclusive mobile-only search offer that gives you an opportunity to earn additional credits on your phone.
Tracking your credits is simple on your phone: just go to your Bing Rewards dashboard or check out your credit balance at the bottom of every Bing search results page. Also in the future: the ability to redeem your credit balance in the mobile version of the redemption center so you can easily use digital gift cards and coupons when you’re on the go.
