Microsoft from today will start paying people in the UK to use Bing instead of Google for all of their search needs.

The Microsoft Rewards programme was previously only available in the US, and offers points for every Bing search you do.

These points can then be used to cash in on different rewards - such as Xbox digital gift cards, Groove Music passes and Skype credits.

Microsoft have also partnered with a number of charities to let you donate these points instead.

To sign up for the scheme, you just need to register on the Microsoft Rewards page.

When you start off, Bing users will get three points for each search - and this is doubled until August 15 if you are using Microsoft Edge.

There are two status tiers in Microsoft Rewards - Level 1 and Level 2.

Level 1 users can earn a maximum of 30 points per day - 60 if they are using Edge - through searches or by participating in quizzes.
