- Microsoft will soon let us modify all the amounts we put on gift cards.
- For now, the maximum amount is $50, but it could go up in the future.
- Only a few lucky Insiders are testing this feature for the time being.
As you know, Microsoft Rewards has been around for a while now. For those unfamiliar with it, you can sign up for a Microsoft account on a web browser, and then perform various tasks online.
Of course, these tasks include but are not limited to searching on Bing, answering quizzes, and participating in various Microsoft-hosted events.
Be sure you know how to block autoplay videos on Edge next time you are online, for a smoother experience.
Also, if you want to send files using the Edge Drop feature, we can show you how to do it. Now, let’s circle back to Microsoft’s Rewards service.
You can create your custom gift cards with Microsoft Rewards
After performing one of the above-mentioned tasks for Microsoft, you then collect points that you can redeem for, among other things, digital gift cards for Microsoft products and other companies.
That being said, keep in mind that those gift card redemptions are currently limited to only small amounts, like $5, $25, and $50.
This can be frustrating for people that put in more work and would like to redeem bigger prizes, so Redmond’s gears started turning.
Mikhail Parakhin, Microsoft’s head of Advertising and Web Services made a special announcement today, one you will surely get a kick out of.
He posted on Twitter that Microsoft is testing a new system where Rewards members can put in their own amounts for gift cards.
In theory, the system should now allow for more reward cards to be redeemed because users won’t have to wait to get to the $25 gift card level from Amazon when they only need to get to $20.
Redmond officials also claim they are testing this new system on a flight. This means that only a limited amount of users are actively testing it.
And, after all the work on it is done, it should become available for all Microsoft Rewards users in a couple of weeks.
Remember that the Microsoft Rewards service recently got linked with the new AI-generated Bing Image Creator.
Furthermore, exactly as you would have expected, putting in rewards points lets users generate artwork in Bing Image Creator faster.
