Can I ask, how long do people spend per day getting the free points and how many points does that add up to by the end of the month roughly? Thanks
If anyone doesn't care about points feel free to send them to me.

*waits for the comments about time/value*

I spend two or three minutes a day doing simple quizzes and clicking on a few links on the Rewards page. I also installed the Bing and Edge apps and every few days I'll use them to do a few searches. Every so often I'll get some extra points if I unlock achievements on the xbox.
I usually get around 5,000 points a month, although I'm sure it's possible to get a lot more.

Can you even send points to non family linked accounts? I just send them to my main to use at a later date.

I spend approx 3 minutes a day on the Microsoft rewards page getting points. Couldn't say how many points per month as it differs greatly depending on if you do the quests (game downloads & certain challenges) but I've been doing it for about 4 months and have now 7000 points. Hope that helps

i've got 6300 points so far this month and just use bing for searching so searches im doing anyway but the little quiz things that you get take a couple of minuites maybe and if you play the game pass games on xbox you can get more through the app on your xbox but i dont usually bother with them. also bought a few games in the recent sale and get 20 points for every £1 spent if your level 2 which is not hard to get so there was quite a few points from that

It's such a small return (0.3p per search) I just about manage to remember do it for myself these days. :P

I usually get around 6-7k a month for just 5 mins a day. I often miss a day here and there too as I sometimes forget to do the mobile searches and have once or twice forgot the actual web searches. You reach level 2 after your first month and once level 2 you get 90 points for searches online plus 12 more if using edge and 60 points for mobile searches. Each search is 3 points so very little time or effort. You also get daily tasks which gives you anywhere from 30 to 50 points total plus other available clicks for 10 points each most days. You also get bonus points for doing daily tasks every 10 days for 150 points. You’ll also get points through game pass if you do certain objectives through games on there. Also the rewards app on the console has many items you can click for 5 points each. I used points to get my gold to Feb 22 and then paid the £1 to get gamepass ultimate upgrade so that’s now good until March 22 all for just £1 and I still have enough points now to get £50 in credit. It’s definitely worth doing.
At first I thought it was all a bit much for so little, but they do rack up and can be done while having my morning brew before my day starts.
Personally I have 2 accounts (mine and my sons - we game share) I spend a couple minutes each on both accounts on PC quizzing and questionnaires and then again a minute or so on mobile apps. I Rack up a min of 7,000 plus on each every month. Currently sat on 58,000 on mine and 52,000 on my sons. It does take time, but i have key binded Enter/Page Refresh for the search bar on PC and just spam keys on keyboard and hit the hot key. I log in every day to get the bonus every ten days and I use the rewards app on xbox dashboard.
I'm rubbish at maths, but i think I'm earning 20/25p per day on each account when redeemed against an offer like this. (Totally and happily prepared to be proved wrong for actual amount)

Blew though lots of points last year on the gambling kitty. Now save them. I try for the min 110 per day. No time to get the challenges on xbox, even the download certain game for free points. Was hoping game pass this time.

I have done this for year just to get my 12 months xbox live anything else is a bonus currently stacked up 3 years.
How do you send points to another account? First I've heard of this. Tnx

It under the community tab, as far as I can tell you can only send to family members.

Well worth getting in a routine with this every day - I've managed a streak of 120 days and I'm now getting approx. 5k per month not doing much else apart from using Bing as my default search. I've used the points recently to put towards a pre-order for the new Destiny 2 DLC and Borderlands 3, and last summer there was even a glitch for 3-month xbox live codes only costing 1,000 points (I used this to max out my Xbox Live Gold, and still have an extra year to add at some point). I hope they don't nerf the rewards programme any time soon!
Mine is saying the cost is 5850 points for a £5 card?

Make sure to look at the Xbox gift card card and not the Microsoft gift card.

Completely against the rules, but I have 3 browsers. Two of which I redeem the other just gifts to one of the other accounts. (Takes 3-5 mins tops)

One Account will redeem Gold for me (Once I'm locked up on X years of gold, I will use this to gift a game to my main) (I will redeem with a different phone number too so the system thinks it's another person). (This is my Chrome Account. 90 point searches takes 1 minute tops (I spam a bunch of numbers then take 1 number off) Do the same with mobile search, you access this by clicking f12 and changing it to mobile in the settings, Click the litle icon next to Elements. Then do the little random tasks per day.

Next account - This is the gifting account, once you earn 600 points in a month you can gift 5k points to one of your accounts. This is my Firefox account, Just repeat the spamming numbers for 90 points per day and the daily tasks ( Don't know how to do mobile emulator for this)

Last Account- Edge This is my main account which is purely for Gift Cards It gives 12 points extra per day for searching via Edge, So I get 102 points for that each day, once again for mobile searchs f12 to bring up the settings. Go to emulation, Switch your device to Mobile and I clicked Nokia Lumia. Do the mobile searches and the daily tasks.

With all of this, I earn around 6-7k Points per month on Chrome, 5k on Firefox, 7k on Edge. Which obviously adds up over time.

I changed my default search engine to bing probably about 8-10 months ago now on my phone and probably do about 3 searches a day and just looked I'm on about 10,000.
I did a few of them quizzes at the beginning but can't be bothered.
So it's slow going if your just getting the search points.
Shame you need to use it within 3 months
There's an app called rewards automator. It does all the searches for you.
I've got into a habit with this now, pays for my Live and then gift vouchers as needed.
Getting around 8-9000 points a month, 5 minutes ish per day. It helps that I work from home currently too.

You get 90 points a day for searching on your computer (3 points per search), 60 points/day for mobile searches. Quizzes vary from around 100 to a few 100s, I don't spend more than 5 minutes a day (every day - as you get bonus points). So about 1000 to 1500 points a week, perhaps 4000 to 5000/month...

I found it quicker & less hassle to perform the searches manually...
Just 1 hour of overtime at work earns more than an entire months worth of this points-earning-headache. I understand any money making opportunity is good, but put in perspective and I feel that in this case my personal time is more important.
Hi this seems the place to ask “hopefully”🙏🏽I purchased an Xbox gift card think £40/50 can’t remember that long ago. Well my son and good few mates couldn’t get it working. In the meantime he’s managed another way. Now I’m stuck with an Xbox card when I took it back to asda they said nothing to do with them.. does anyone know what I can do to get this refunded by Microsoft? I’m assuming it’s Microsoft?? Know it’s nothing hot deal about this but could do with guidance cheers

Will this get your account banned?
I have been doing this for years. I have over 137,000 lifetime balance. Purchased so many games and apps and Xbox live with it. Worth doing. The best thing is to redeem when the points are on offer and only spend on deals with gold discounts to make your money spread further.

You could still work your overtime and you could do this on the bog.
4.500 points this month and spending 2-3 minutes per day for the daily stuff. And now there are the Game Pass Quests which gives you additional points mostly for getting achievements which I do anyway.

Was waiting for the offer and will spend my 20.000+ points now

This is HotUKdeals, less than x minutes at work earns more than an entire months worth of this points-earning-headache. What's your point? Or are you just trying to brag?

Thanks for posting @boltonbri we have added this to the Highlights page
I've been doing this for about a year now, if you put the effort in you can make a lot of points to use on games etc. either by gifting games or gifting the points to the family set up. Have 10 accounts at the moment none have been banned. Also don't forget extra points via game pass quests and Xbox dashboard. If you play it right you can gain 6000-8000 points per month, with 10 accounts I have works out around £800 per year money value.

ps. Thanks for the note about the App which does it for you, I never knew about this.

I've earned over 10k points so far this month by using a VPN and doing the bonus searches in each available country. The standard searches (90 browser / 60 mobile) only work in the UK, but I'm getting around 550 points a day at the moment. Takes a couple of minutes.

Never used VPN before, not really sure how to set it up. I get 120 mobile searches per day on main account as they never took the bonus 60 away after a month
