Get Ad-Free All Year Long with Bing Rewards

If you’re all in with Microsoft, and use Bing as your default search engine, you know about the Bing Rewards programs. You get a certain amount of points per day for your searches, and after points add up, you can redeem them for some cool things like gift certificates, sweepstakes entries, and more.

What I like to use them for is to keep my experience free of ads like shown in the screenshot below.

Ad-free with Bing Rewards

You could pay $19.99/year for Ad-free but free is always better. You will, of course, need to sign up for the Bing Rewards program, which is a simple process.

Then after you’ve accumulated a decent amount of points, select Redeem from the dropdown menu.


Scroll down the list of reward offers until you find the 3 months of Ad-free tile. At the time of this writing it’s only 270 reward points to get it.

Then confirm you want to redeem your reward, and a verification email will be sent to your primary email.

You’ll get a PIN code and instructions on how to get your three months of ad-free.


The shot below is of my without the ads. I’ve also found that it actually speeds up the experience since there’s no waiting for the ads to load.

If you use Bing as your full-time search engine, why not put those reward points to good use. Enjoying Ad-free all year long is certainly worthwhile.

Now, these rewards are probably not an incentive enough for people to switch over to Bing from another search engine. However, if you’re already using Bing, or thinking about making the jump, this is one benefit you can take advantage of.

    I did not even realize that accounts had ads. I’ve had mine for well over a decade when it was still called Hotmail. It must be the perk of a longtime member…

    Free? They want name, address and phone number to redeem Bing points even though I was signed in with an active MicroSoft (Hotmail) account.
