2023.05.28 22:05 Dyl8Reddit I’ve been collecting the Bing Word of the Day for an entire year now!

On the day that I posted this, 5-28-2023, it would have been an entire year since I started collecting the daily word that Bing offers every day. For those of you don’t know, if you search for “Word of the day” on Bing, you will find a unique vocabulary word that is specific to each day. That’s what I’ve been documenting for the past year.
I started collecting the words back on May 29, 2022. I kept them in a plain text document that I named word-of-the-day.txt. This document was going to store my words in a specific format, which you will see below. I appended to this document every day in the summer using Windows Notepad, until I eventually moved the document to my Google Drive. This allowed me to hook up multiple automations to it, like a Siri Shortcut that would get the latest word and allow me to append it. Once April of 2023 (or even earlier) came around, I decided to change to only updating it every 6 days since my life was getting a bit busier then. And when I wasn’t automating, I would manually add the daily word as part of my MicrosoftRewards routine (sometimes, but only when I had the extra time for it)
Doing this isn’t as easy as going back to add all 365 words right before I published this. That is because there is a limit to how far back one can go in the daily words — after 7 days a word disappears from the end of the list and is lost forever. This meant that I had to stay on top of the word list, which I did do pretty consistently until I missed on day on June 30th. But that’s ok, as we all make mistakes.
While I was keeping track of the words that Bing offered every day, I learned some interesting things. Discovering a new word every day slowly strengthened my vocabulary to be more eclectic. I used these words in various things like stories, or just to confuse people that had never heard of the words. And with more words, what started as a hobby to collect the words became a project to archive the WOTD for an entire year.
A lot can happen in a single year. When I started, I didn't even have a Reddit account, and it was late May around the time where everyone gets out of school that I started making the list. Now it’s the end of another school year. I am completely different person.
So with that context and reflection, I would say that it is about time to show you the list that I’ve been collecting:*

2023.02.24 08:49 tinyvast-com My story continues: That certainly is a niiiice looking controller that I got from Rewards, but Microsoft is driving me crazy!

My story continues: That certainly is a niiiice looking controller that I got from Rewards, but Microsoft is driving me crazy!

is so shiny
So I got that for free. It's quite nice, don't you think? It looks even nicer in person that I expected.
And it's got a USB C plug, which I wanted, because instead of messing with batteries in my controllers, I just plug them into a phone charger, but the standard controllers use a micro USB plug, and those tend to suck and come loose all the time.

Now, here's an excessively long story! You don't really need to read this, unless you want to laugh at my pain! XD
Ok, continuing from my last post My "Big Ticket" Reward from years of point hoarding, plus some praise and ranting about MS Rewards. : MicrosoftRewards (reddit.com)
I had used MS Rewards to get a Surface Laptop Go 2 completely free, but I (annoyingly) ended up with $52 (and some change) in MS balance that I would need to spend within 3 months. There was no rush, but I would occasionally browse the terribly designed MS Store (as I complained about in my previous post) to see what might be on sale.
I was considering getting Torchlight 2, but that would have only been $20, and would have left me looking for yet another thing to buy with the remaining balance.
Someone in the other thread mentioned that it's always nice to have a spare controller, so I looked at those. The standard boring black one was on sale for like $47, but this super snazzy one was on sale for $49.99. I figured I could cash in a couple more dollars in MS Rewards points to cover the tax and use up my balance all at once so I could stop having to worry about it. Also remember from my previous post that I had cashed in 546,000 points, and there is a yearly 550,000 point redemption limit, so I had 4,000 more points I could redeem this year to cover that tax amount.
But now we get back to how much I HATE using the MS Store.... Normally it's just that the store is stupidly hard to navigate... but this time, a new problem arose. I added that snazzy controller to my cart, and went to checkout to see how much tax would be... but, for some reason, it refused to show me how much the tax was. It just didn't show up at all. That never happened before. Usually it would show the total with tax, but nope! Not this time!
Well, I tried to check out anyway, but then it would just pop up an error and say that I had insufficient funds in my MS balance, but would still not tell me how much I actually needed! How helpful.
So I thought, "well, maybe it doesn't like this new laptop. It always worked on my old laptop...." So... I got back on my old Win 7 device and went to the MS Store and tried to access my saved shopping cart.... and the cart showed as being empty. Argh. Then I went and added the controller to my cart again, and went to checkout... and now there where TWO controllers in the cart. Why, MS... ?
I deleted one, and went to checkout, but still it refused to show me the tax amount. Ok, it wasn't the laptop. I went back to my new Surface laptop and opened the MS Store again... and guess what? When I went to checkout, my shopping cart was empty again.... Sooo, I added the controller again so it said "1 item in cart" but when I go to check out, you can guess it, there were TWO controllers in the cart again! I deleted one, and I'm back to where I started -- it refused to show me the total amount I needed to pay with tax. You're killing me, MS.....
Now, usually it will also let me split the amount by paying part of it with MS Balance and the remainder with PayPal, but not this time; the only option was to change the payment method and pay it all with PayPal. Come on, MS.....
My next thought was that it must only be short by like a dollar or so. Tax wouldn't be too much over $52 (and some change)... So I went and cashed in a $1.25 MS gift card for 1,600 points. Surely that would be enough? No... no, it was not. I still got the un-informative error massage when trying to complete the purchase, only telling me there were insufficient funds Ok, fine. I cashed in another 1.600 points for another $1.25.... and lo and behold, the purchase went through!!
But that's annoying, because that means I spent 3,200 points for $2.50, while the $3 gift card costs only 2,900 points. I paid 300 more points for 50 cents less. Ugh.
But, I thought, at least I am done with this for the year! It's over! I've spent out my balance and all the points I can possibly redeem for the year! Thank goodness! I won't have to mess with the MS Store any more for an entire year, at least!!
Well, I do have 800 points left that I can redeem this year, so maybe I can enter a sweepstakes, heh. Though I think I may have already done one of those for 200 earlier in the year. But I digress!
I was free! All points spent! All balance gone! I was so free!!! Such a weight was lifted from my shoulders!
I bet nobody can guess what happened next.... Plot Twist!!!
The next morning I checked my email to see that the order had gone through correctly, and it had.
But to my mortification, I also had a new email that morning that said..... "What goes great with Surface? This $5 gift card on us. Use it to purchase apps or accessories for your new Surface device. Redeem your $5 gift card. *Must redeem in 30 days and spend within 90 days of redemption."
Why is this happening!?!? *bangs head on keyboard*
This suck at least 3 different ways.
  1. If they would have sent it sooner (why did they wait so long after my laptop purchase on Feb 4??) I could have used that to cover the tax for the controller. But noooo, they sent it RIGHT AFTER I made the second purchase on Feb 20.....
  2. Now I have to find something ELSE to buy on the MS Store for under $5. I hate using the MS Store, especially to try to find games. Seriously, you cannot even filter or sort by price, so you just have to scroll through pages and pages of games of all different prices, and unless you search the entire site (you have to search by "All Microsoft" instead of the actual "games" section, despite it saying you can browse the full catalog there), you can't even find most games, like Torchlight 2, for example (which would have to go on sale anyway). So, now I'm thinking maybe Realms of Ancient War (it's $4.99, though it's currently on sale for less... but only if you have Gold, which I do not have. MS hates me.).
  3. Also, there will be TAX on a $5 game too! And because the stupid MS Store wouldn't tell me how much tax I needed to pay for the controller, I ended up with 50 cents less than I would have if I bought the $3 gift card.... So I currently have 30 cents in my MS Balance instead of 80 cents.... and I just KNOW tax on $5 is going to end up being slightly more than 30 cents..... Well, as long as they will tell me how much the tax will be and let me pay the remainder with PayPal, that won't be a problem..... But... my hoped aren't high for everything to work correctly.....
I thought I was out, but they keep pulling me back in!
When does the hurting stop?


But that is a mighty snazzy looking controller, am I right??

2023.02.15 18:26 KaneRobot Guide to getting enough MS Rewards points to get Game Pass/GPU for "free"

I still frequently see posts from people asking about the best deal on Game Pass Unlimited. While good deals do pop up occasionally, and the Gold to GPU trick is nice, the best deal I've seen so far is still "free." While some people will claim that it's not free because you have to spend time each day getting points...that has always struck me as a strange argument. If you have enough time to screw around on Reddit, you have the couple minutes a day you need to get these points to get your Game Pass Ultimate for free.
This is a lot of text but I wouldn't let that drive you away, at this point it's second nature to me and it's very quick to do every day. I've had GPU for almost 2 years now and am still good for another year and a half (and counting). Total cost has been $0.
It should be noted this is for people in the US, although based on comments I've seen there are ways to do it outside the US as well.
The cost is 12,000 points for a one month GPU code and 35,000 for a 3 month.
To maximize your points without spending anything:
  1. https://rewards.bing.com will let you set up your account, as well as get a few hundred points a day if you just do searches on Bing. Should only take you a few minutes a day once you get in the habit. They also give you a 150 point bonus as long as you come back every day for a week. While I will not tell you what to do as far as using a bot to auto do your searches for you, I would not do that. It doesn't take long at all to do it yourself and it's better to err on the side of caution - obviously you'll be banned from the program if they notice. Get the Bing app for your phone as well if you can, they recently added something where on some days you can get 30 points a day for browsing news stories. You can get points by just looking at the headline and then waiting for couple of seconds for the points to register, you can then scroll right on the story to open a new one and repeat the process up to 10 times (meaning it gives you 3 points per story).
  2. Get the Microsoft Rewards as well as the Xbox Game Pass apps on your Xbox. This will give you the chance to get literally thousands more points per month than you would otherwise - weekly sets, points for playing games, achievement based rewards, etc. This is your biggest difference between using Xbox exclusive stuff and not.
  3. Get the Xbox app on your phone. They recently added something that allows you to get about 100 points a day if you play the built-in match 3 game for a couple of minutes, play a PC Game Pass game (I just idle on the Among Us title screen for a few minutes and it will pop) and just log into the app.
When you redeem for Game Pass Ultimate, redeem the 3-month code if you can wait until you have enough points. There is a slight discount (35,000 versus what would be 36,000) if you get three month increments instead of one month. If you would rather do the monthly auto-redeem on the Xbox Rewards app you can save even more.
If you do zero extra stuff on your Xbox, you'll still have enough to get a 3-month code every 3 and a half months (or less). It won't line up perfectly and you may have to pay for a month once in a great while, but that's a lot better than paying monthly or even a full year. Again, that's just if you do the stuff on the website and don't use your Xbox at all. If you do, you should have no problem getting the points you need.
I think that's about everything, but I'll be glad to edit this post and add to it if someone has other suggestions that require a zero financial investment.
EDIT: Also check out MicrosoftRewards for other info, especially on games that can get you points. (Thanks u/malliabu)

2023.01.30 21:11 historiasdevideogame Como conseguir o PC Game Pass de GRAÇA!!! (Não é clickbait)

Como todo o brasileiro, nós gostamos de pagar barato. E se for de graça é melhor ainda então vim aqui ensinar como pegar o Gamepass PC de GRAÇA. ISSO MESMO DE GRAÇA. Siga-me nas redes sociais para mais dicas (na verdade é o meu Youtube para gameplays sem Comentários)
Primeiro você tem que ir em https://rewards.bing.com e se cadastrar. Se tiver conta no Hotmail melhor ainda.
O Microsoft Rewards te da pontos fazendo tarefas e você pode trocar por prêmios, mas o foco aqui é o PC Game Pass por 9250 pontos.
Na versão português ele é bem limitado, poucos pontos no mês todo, então nem é possível trocar por nada no fim das contas. Mas o truque é o seguinte – Usando um vpn (pode ser o embutido no OPERA GX) você troca para América do Norte e vai abrir várias tarefas todos os dias para ganhar pontos, são quizzes, pesquisas, entrar em sites de notícias, todos eles variam de 5 até 100 pontos, e se você entrar todo dia tem premiações por dias seguidos que dão mais pontos.
Então se fizer todos os dias todas as tarefas você consegue juntar 9250 pontos fácil no em 30 dias, ai é só trocar os pontos por um Game Pass PC e resgatar o código no app do XBOX.
Não, você não é banido, já faço isso há 3 anos e nunca deu problema, inclusive no MicrosoftRewards eles ensinam isso a anos e nunca vi alguém falar que foi banido.
Então resumindo
· Se cadastre no https://rewards.bing.com
· Use um VPN na localização América do Norte
· Junte pontos e resgate o PC GAME PASS por 9250
E Quem puder me dar uma força no meu canal https://www.youtube.com/c/HistóriasDeVideogame
Fico imensamente agradecido

2022.12.14 17:48 Mysterious_Employ_50 No option to redeem xbox live gold 3 months for some people on Microsoft Rewards?

Hello. I see some people mention we can redeem gold for 15,000.
I am in the UK and I see many others saying they have the option.
I cannot see this option at all and only started using Microsoft rewards 4 months ago.
I only have the option to redeem 1 month or 3 month ultimate.
I messaged microsoft about it and they said what is on the redeem page is what is available.
How can some people have the option and not others?
here is proof that some users in the UK and US can see the xbox live gold redeem option.
(5) No Gold for 15,000 option? : MicrosoftRewards (reddit.com)

This makes it very unfair for some to have the option and not others because 3 years of gold would only cost 135,000 in the UK at 15,000 x 9 3 month codes.

If anyone can bring this issue to Microsoft's attention that would be greatly appreciated.

2022.12.04 04:25 Robo_Salmon Redemption!

Meant to post this earlier but real life got pretty crazy. Anyways, thanks to MSR for the generous loyalty program and MicrosoftRewards for making getting points as painless as possible.
Paid the entire cost of console ($500) with points (455,000 = 91,000 pts x (5) $100 giftcards). Taxes ($30) were covered by taking advantage of Gamestop's monthly $5 PUR certificates on $10 Xbox gift cards online every month.
At the time of redemption, my lifetime points collected was around 600,000 points. On average, I would get about 21,000 points a months with Game Pass (without it it would average around 17,000 or 18,000 points a month in USA, btw). So like most other people who also snagged a Series X, it took 2 years and some months to achieve.

2022.10.28 16:16 MrBenjaminBerry Reminder: If you live in the US, you can get Game Pass for free by taking advantage of MS Rewards

After listening to yesterday's KFGD talking about a possible price increase for Game Pass and the PSILYXOXO from a few weeks back which talked about comparing Stars vs MS Rewards, just wanted to remind the US Best Friends that you can easily pay for Game Pass Ultimate while not spending anything, if you're willing to spend a few minutes a day doing searches, quizzes, and polls.
I posted about this over 2 years ago in here. Since then the ability to rack up points without purchasing anything has not decreased, if anything it's increased. Latest info is on MicrosoftRewards on how to earn points for many different regions.
Monthly, without spending a cent of my own money, I earn about 20k points. It costs 12K points for 1 month of Game Pass Ultimate. 7750 points for PC Game Pass.
I have never paid for Game Pass and been a member since Day 1. They would have to double the price or severely reduce the amount of points you can earn for me to ever have to pay for GPU.
**EDIT** This morning I decided to time myself and record myself, doing the minimum needed per day to get to 12k points per 4 week span. Which is the cost of GPU per month. I usually do this at a leisurely pace on a 2nd screen, but wanted to time if I ONLY focused on getting it done as fast as possible
It took 1 minute 11 seconds today to do that minimum. GPU costs $16.38 after taxes per month.
That's 28 days, times 1 minute 11 seconds, 33.13 minutes. 16.38/33.13 = 49.4 cents per minute, or $29.66 per hour.
