Microsoft will give bonuses to the users Bing

"The more searches you do through Bing, the more points you will earn". Microsoft also allows users to donate their reward points to various charity organization it has partnered with.

Created to erode Google's near monopoly in search the incentives initiative is being rolled out in the United Kingdom today following a successful launch in the USA a year ago and is being marketed as a "rewards program" for adopting Microsoft's services.

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.
