Australia is among the first countries to be joining the Microsoft Rewards program outside of the US. Existing Xbox Live Rewards members in Australia will be rolled into the new program automatically. Microsoft Rewards program offers users a chance to earn points by using the Microsoft Edge browser, searching with Bing, and shopping on Xbox, Windows, or Microsoft Stores. Extra points are available for completing quizzes and taking tours on the Microsoft Rewards page. Points can be cashed in for gift cards at the Xbox, Windows, or Microsoft Stores; contest entries for Microsoft products; or donated to charity.
The Microsoft Rewards Program is now live in Australia. Microsoft is kicking things off with a celebration at the Pitt Street Mall in Sydney, where visitors can win Microsoft hardware by participating in the Discover Microsoft Rewards in-store between April 12-13th. More details are available at the Microsoft Store Facebook. New users can sign up for Microsoft Rewards here.
