To search for an item users merely need to highlight the area with their mouse and, using deep neural networks, Microsoft will change the image into a relevant text search to find what you are looking for. The points are redeemable for shopping trips in its online store. Microsoft also gives out 1 point for every pound spend at the United Kingdom online Microsoft Store. So if you successfully manage to hit 500 points in a month, there's a second level that offers better rewards and pushes your point limit to a maximum of 150 points per day.

Every time you perform a Bing search, you can earn 3 points.

Outlining the concept to Wired Kevin Stagg, head of consumer marketing at Microsoft, said: "The points can be redeemed for a number of Microsoft offerings". Earnings are limited to 30 per day, or 60 if you're on Edge.
