One of the core reasons why Microsoft's Bing search engine is not well received in most countries is that Microsoft restricts features regionally. It is not the only reason but Bing feels like a second class version in many countries but the US.

One service that is not available for example outside the US is Bing Rewards. Designed as an incentive to use the Bing search engine, members who join the free program earn credits while using Bing.

Using in this context includes searching but also testing out new features or performing other tasks. Credits can be redeemed for gifts or donated to charity.

If you open the Bing Rewards dashboard, you get a list of tasks that you can complete every day, once or in another time period to earn credits.

This ranges from doing searches on the desktop or mobile devices, inviting friends, or answering a simple question by using Bing to find the answer.

If you open the Bing Rewards dashboard right now or check the notifications while you are on Bing, you will notice a new offer.

You get one credit and 100 Gigabyte of OneDrive storage space for two years for free.

The catch? You agree to receive promotional emails from OneDrive in exchange for that.

It is possible however to unsubscribe from those at any time.

one drive free storage

If you accept the offer you get the 100 GB extra storage for the next two years. The total storage on OneDrive is increased immediately but the 100 GB extra are not listed on the storage page on the site.

100 Gigabyte of storage space is available for $1.99 per month on OneDrive currently which makes this offer worth $47.76 in total over the two year period.

As mentioned previously, this offer is only valid in countries where Bing Rewards is available in. This includes the US and maybe one or two other countries but for most it is not available.

You can still sign-up using a VPN or a service like Zenmate and get the reward but there is risk involved in doing so.

If Microsoft catches up to you, it may terminate your participation in the program and remove the storage again from your account.

You can opt-out of the program yourself which does not seem to impact the free storage that you got though.

This is not the first time Microsoft offered OneDrive storage space on Bing Rewards. Last year, members of the reward program could get 100 GB of storage for one year for 100 account credits.

    Martin, I would appreciate that you do not censor this post, as it’s informative writing.

    Onur, there is a misleading statement “[…] GIFs are animated images …”. No, obviously you don’t seem to have take much notice of what you were told back in March regarding; Graphics Interchange Format (GIF).

    For example, (if you had read my replies within that thread, you might have learnt something useful). I even mentioned, “GIF intrinsically supports animated images (GIF89a)”.

    You linked to said article, [Related: …] within this article, but have somehow failed to take onboard what support you were given by several more knowledgeable people.

    If you used AI to help write this article, it has failed miserably.

    AI is stupid, and it will not get any better if we really know how this all works. Prove me wrong..

    Martin, [#comment-4569908] is only meant to be in: []. Whereas it appears duplicated in several recent random low-quality non relevant articles.

    Obviously it [#comment-4569908] was posted: 9 July 2023. Long before this thread even existed… your database is falling over. Those comments are supposed to have unique ID values. It shouldn’t be possible to duplicate the post ID, if the database had referential integrity.

    GateKeeper ?

    That’s called “appointing” businesses to do the state’s dirty work!!!!!

    But the article says itself that those appointed were not happy – implying they had not choice!!!!!!

    @The Dark Lady,

    @Howard Allan Pearce,

    Note: I replaced the quoted URI scheme: https:// with “>>” and posted.

    The current is owned by “Softonic International S.A.” (sold by Martin in October 2019), and due to the fate of M&A, has changed in quality.
    Many Authors of bloggers and advertisers certified by Softonic have joined the site, and the site is full of articles aimed at advertising and clickbait.
    As it stands, except for articles by Martin Brinkmann, Mike Turcotte, and Ashwin, they are low quality, unhelpful, and even vicious. It is better not to read those articles.
    How to display only articles by a specific author:
    Added line to My filters in uBlock Origin:,.home-posts,.home-category-post:not(:has-text(/Martin Brinkmann|Mike Turcotte|Ashwin/))

    By the way, if you use an RSS reader, you can track exactly where your comments are (I’m an iPad user, so I use “Feedly Classic”, but for Windows I prefer the desktop app “RSS Guard”).
    RSS Guard: Feed reader which supports RSS/ATOM/JSON and many web-based feed services.

    We all live in digital surveillance glass houses under scrutiny of evil people because of people like Musk. It’s only fair that he takes his turn.

    “Operating systems will be required to let the user choose the browser, virtual assistant and search engine of their choice. Microsoft cannot force users to use Bing or Edge. Apple will have to open up its iOS operating system to allow third-party app stores, aka allow sideloading of apps. Google, on the other hand, will need to provide users with the ability to uninstall preloaded apps (bloatware) from Android devices. Online services will need to allow users to unsubscribe from their platform easily. Gatekeepers need to provide interoperability with third-parties that offer similar services.”

    Wonderful ! Let’s hope they’ll comply with that law more than they are doing with the GDPR.
