Bing Rewards now offers you a new way to earn 100 frequent travel loyalty program miles and points at no cost to you — other than your time doing something you most likely already do…
…searching for information on the Internet.
Simply accrue enough Bing Rewards credits to redeem for a certificate and enter your frequent travel loyalty account information to have the miles or points deposited into your account. Certificates expire six months from when you receive them — but that should be plenty of time to use them.
The frequent travel loyalty programs in which you may earn 100 frequent travel loyalty program miles and points by using Bing Rewards include the following:
- American Airlines AAdvantage
- Frontier Airlines EarlyReturns
- Hawaiian Airlines HawaiianMiles
- Icelandair Saga Club
- IHG Rewards Club
- US Airways Dividend Miles
- Virgin Atlantic Flying Club
Additionally, you may also earn 100 points from the My BestBuy Rewards and SVM FuelCircle loyalty programs.
To sign up as a new member of Bing Rewards, you must be 13 years of age or older; and you need to have an account with Microsoft — and you already do if you use Hotmail or MSN — or be a member of Facebook. There is no monetary cost for membership.
FlyerTalk members posted mixed reactions about earning frequent travel loyalty program miles and points with Bing Rewards.
“Bing points are easy to accrue, so 385 points = 100 miles isn’t too bad.”, FlyerTalk member brettalb reported.
“It works out to buying miles at 4c each (usining the $5 Amazon award as a benchmark), so I’ll pass”, posted FlyerTalk member 6am at ORD.
However, FlyerTalk member moo-moo offers this advice: “Virgin America is one of the listed airlines. 1 VX point is worth MUCH more than 1 miles on most other airlines.”
My advice echoes that of other FlyerTalk members: using Bing Rewards to earn 100 frequent travel loyalty program miles and points is a great way of keeping your frequent travel loyalty program account — and its points or miles — from expiring at no monetary cost to you.
