How I Earned 1000 Microsoft Reward Points in Under 2 Weeks

Hey there! As a fellow tech geek who loves gaming and streaming, I know how rewarding (pun intended) the Microsoft Rewards program can be. Getting free gift cards and other perks just for using Microsoft products? Count me in!

In this guide, I‘ll share with you how I earned 1000 Microsoft Reward points in under 2 weeks. With the right strategies, you can rack up points quickly too.

How Many Points Can You Earn Per Day?

The number of points you can earn per day depends on your Microsoft Rewards status level:

  • Level 1: Up to 110 points per day
  • Level 2: Up to 150 points per day

As a Level 2 user, I was able to average around 100-150 points per day by completing all the daily activities.

Here‘s a breakdown of how many points you can earn from each activity:

Activity Points Per Day
PC Search 30 points
Mobile Search 30 points
Microsoft Rewards Activities 60 points
Xbox Activities 50 points bonus per month
Surveys 25-200 points

The key is to make sure you max out those daily search limits and complete the Rewards activities.

The Fastest Ways to Earn 1000 Points

Through trial and error, I found these to be the fastest ways to earn points:

1. Complete All 3 Daily Sets

This is hands down the fastest way to earn points. There are 3 daily sets you can complete:

  • PC search – Use Bing on your desktop
  • Mobile search – Search with Bing on your phone
  • Microsoft Rewards – Polls, quizzes and offers

It takes about 5-10 minutes to complete all 3 sets. I averaged around 100 points per day from the sets.

2. Install the Browser Extensions

Make sure to install the Microsoft Rewards extension on Edge and the Bing toolbar on Chrome or Firefox. This turns every web search into a points opportunity.

I earned an extra 20-30 points per day just by browsing as usual with the extensions. Easy!

3. Play Xbox Games

If you have an Xbox console, don‘t miss out on the Xbox Rewards activities. Here are some ways to earn:

  • Complete Xbox Game Pass daily and weekly quests
  • Earn achievements in games
  • Make purchases in the Xbox store

I averaged around 50 bonus points per month from Xbox rewards.

4. Check for Special Offers

Keep an eye out for special point multiplier deals and bonus quizzes. During one 2x points event, I earned over 300 points in a single day!

I also took advantage of weekly email bonuses like the 50 point PC search punch card.

5. Take Surveys

In addition to the daily sets, I completed 1-2 survey offers per week. These awarded 100-150 extra points.

Surveys can take 5-15 minutes and the points go beyond your daily limits.

Tips to Maximize Earnings

Here are some extra tips I used to squeeze out every last point:

  • Always stay signed in to Rewards when browsing. This lets it track your points in the background.
  • Set Bing as your default search engine on all browsers and devices. The points add up fast!
  • Complete email punch cards and bonuses. I earned lots of extra points this way.
  • Check for new quizzes and polls each day. Some are super quick to complete.
  • Use Microsoft News on your phone. You get daily mobile points just for reading articles.
  • Refer friends to earn up to 5,000 lifetime points. I referred 2 friends which got me 1,000 points!

How Long It Took Me to Earn 1000 Points

In total, it took me 12 days to earn my first 1000 Microsoft Reward points.

Here was my daily earnings breakdown:

Day Points Earned Total Points
Day 1 110 110
Day 2 150 260
Day 3 120 380
Day 4 100 480
Day 5 90 570
Day 6 130 700
Day 7 110 810
Day 8 150 960
Day 9 20 980
Day 10 60 1040
Day 11 150 1190
Day 12 100 1290

As you can see, I averaged around 110 points per day by utilizing all the tips mentioned above.

The key for me was staying consistent with the daily activities and taking advantage of any bonuses or special offers.

What to Redeem Your Hard-Earned Points For

Once you hit 1000 points, here are some of the best rewards:

  • $5 Xbox gift card – 3500 points
  • 1 month of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate – 12,000 points
  • $10 Microsoft gift card – 6800 points
