Microsoft now rewarding Edge users.

Recently Microsoft has been pushing very hard for users to commit to Microsoft Edge. There’s been popups, e-mails and articles released by the Microsoft marketing team claiming Edge to be faster & more efficient than other browsers. Since the latest Microsoft build however, you may have started noticing a new ‘Microsoft Rewards’ program.

Reward programs are nothing new in the technology world. Affiliate programs, surveys, ad clicks are all ways to monetise the Internet. Microsoft rewards puts the money back in your pocket. But, is it worth it? How much is a Microsoft Reward Point worth?

First, let’s look at how you can earn points.
Take a tour to learn about Rewards – 50 pts.
Two Minute Quiz – 30 Points.
Do a search using Microsoft Edge - 3 points. *
Spend $1 in the Microsoft Store – 1 point.
*(Maximum of 30 Points per day or 150 Points per month.)

We signed up an account and looked at how much Microsoft reward points are worth… And as we suspected… It needs A LOT of work. We took for example a Gift Card valued at just $3. A $3 gift card is worth 2,380 points, making each point worth only $0.00126 of a cent.

Now let’s revisit the list above and look at the dollar value of the same rewards.
Take a tour to learn about Rewards – 50 pts.       | $0.06
Two Minute Quiz – 30 Points.                                       | $0.038
Do a search using Microsoft Edge - 3 points. *    | $0.004
Spend $1 in the Microsoft Store – 1 point.            | $0.0012

It does get ‘slightly’ better if you earn 500 points each month. Same Rewards again with Level 2.
Take a tour to learn about Rewards – 50 pts.       | $0.06
Two Minute Quiz – 30 Points.                                       | $0.038
Do a search using Microsoft Edge - 3 points. *    | $0.004
Spend $1 in the Microsoft Store – 1 point.            | $0.0012
*(Maximum of 150 Points per day)

That’s right, the only real difference is the ability to earn 120 more points per day through searches. A whopping cash in of $0.189 per day!  
 "Level 2 members can earn more points with Bing, save up to 10% when they redeem points for rewards, and get access to exclusive offers."
