Rewards for Gamers
With all of those activities you can perform via Bing to earn points, would it surprise you to learn that they actually give us 8 points just for checking out the catalog of rewards we can use our points to claim?! Well they do!
And since we are reporting in the gaming-side of this, points or not, we thought you might want to see the selection of rewards that are intended to appeal to our demographic, so here they are:
-- 100 Microsoft Points for Xbox 360 (-125 Bing Credits)
-- 1 Month Xbox LIVE Gold Membership (-999 Bing Credits)
-- Hulu Plus 1-Month Subscription (-694 Bing Credits)
-- Amazon Gift Cards of varying denominations
In addition to the above there are a handful of rewards that sort of relate to gamers, or at the least seem to be targeted in our direction, including:
-- Sweepstakes: 1 entry for Xbox Prize Pack & Movie Rentals for a Year (-20 Bing Credits)
-- Sweepstakes: 10 entry for Xbox Prize Pack & Movie Rentals for a Year (-40 Bing Credits)
In addition to the above selections, gamers with a concern for the world can use the Bing Credits that they earn to make donations in amounts from $1 to $5 to organizations like DonorsChoose.org, The Kids in Need Foundation, Teach for America, and the Boys and Girls Clubs of America, with the cost of the donations equal to 1 Bing Credit per penny -- thus a $5 donation to, say, DonorsChoose.org will set you back 500 Bing Credits. Still, that is actually pretty cool...
