Microsoft is launching a new rewards program that, among other things, will pay users to browse the internet with the Microsoft Edge browser. While it's borne out of a need for users on their struggling browser, it might be the easiest rewards program ever created.
Microsoft launched their Edge browser last July with Windows 10. Edge essentially replaced Internet Explorer, the browser you associate most closely with grandparents, 56K modems, and the great war between Metallica and Napster. Edge hasn't thus far proven to be popular, so Microsoft is incentivizing users with the launch of Microsoft Rewards, a revamp of the already existent Bing Rewards.
Windows 10 users can switch Edge and earn points that can be redeemed a bit like how points work on a credit card. The details of how their point system will work is still a little hazy, but once a user accumulates enough points, they can be redeemed for "Xbox and Windows gift cards, Microsoft Store gift cards, sweepstakes entries, charitable donations" and other perks from stores like Starbucks and Amazon.
