How To Make 20,000 Microsoft Rewards Points Per-Month With Xbox

We know how amazing Microsoft Rewards is, but did you know that if you live in a certain region and you have access to all the MS Rewards benefits on offer, you can make around 20,000 Microsoft Rewards points per-month?

That's the equivalent of almost £20 / $20 worth of free Xbox credit every single month!

In this Microsoft Rewards guide, we're going to break down how you can earn 20,000 points per-month with the help of Xbox, but keep in mind that certain offers are only available in specific regions and to specific users, so while we're able to take advantage here at Pure Xbox, you unfortunately might not be able to.

So, if you want to know how to get Microsoft Rewards points fast, follow these tips and you'll be all set.

Daily Tasks

Kicking off our Microsoft Rewards guide, here are some examples of daily tasks:

Bing Searches

Every day, once you've achieved Level 2 status, you can use Microsoft Bing to earn 90 points via PC searches, 60 points via mobile searches, and an extra 12 points for using the Microsoft Edge browser for some of these searches.

  • Bing Searches = nearly 5000 points per-month

Daily Set

Every day, if you log into the Microsoft Rewards dashboard on a browser or the Microsoft Bing app on Xbox, you can complete a daily set worth at least 30 points per-day, and you'll get bonuses for doing this daily as well.

  • Daily Set = over 1000 points per-month

Daily Achievement

If you complete an achievement in any Xbox or PC Game Pass game, you can claim an extra 5 points per-day. This used to be 50 points until it was changed in November of 2023, so it's sadly not as enticing an option as it used to be.

  • Daily Achievement = 150ish points per-month

Daily Streaks

If you access Microsoft Rewards on a (PC) browser, you may come across something called "Daily Streaks", which allows you rack up 150 bonus points per-week - plus an extra 1000 when you've earned enough puzzle pieces.

  • Daily Achievement = 600ish points per-month + 1000 bonus now and again

Daily Check In

If you use the Microsoft Bing app on mobile, you can sometimes earn around 100 Microsoft Rewards points per-week as part of the "Daily Check In" feature, which simply requires you to hit the "Rewards" tab and then press "Day 1" (or whatever day you happen to be on) as part of the "Daily Check In" tab.

  • Daily Check In = 400ish points per-month (when it shows up)

Read To Earn

Scroll down a little lower than the "Daily Check In" feature on the Bing app for Android and iOS, and you may occasionally see an option called "Read To Earn". Hit this, and you'll be able to read a bunch of Microsoft Bing news stories for 30 Microsoft Rewards points per-day. This feature is targeted at certain users and only appears at certain times, so you never just know when it'll appear...

  • Daily Check In = 900ish points per-month (when it shows up)

MSN Shopping Quizzes

The MSN Shopping website is currently allowing you to complete daily quizzes with a maximum of 100 points on offer per-day. There are a few caveats involved with this, such as the fact that the system sometimes has a few issues and you actually need to get all the answers right, but the potential is there for thousands of points per-month.

Update: This feature seems to have disappeared for the time being, but hopefully it'll return at some point.

  • MSN Shopping Quizzes = Up to 3000ish points per-month

Xbox App Bonuses

If you're in a region that has access to special Xbox Game Pass Quests on the Xbox App for mobile devices, you can do a few things to get Microsoft Rewards points fast on a daily basis. Go onto the app, click your profile image in the bottom corner, and then you'll see what's on offer.

The key thing here is that if you complete all the tasks regularly, which include playing a PC game and playing a PC game "with friends" (which just means playing with anyone online), you'll be able to earn over 300 points per-day via this method, so it's definitely worth trying if you haven't explored the option yet.

  • Xbox App Bonuses = over 9000 points per-month

MSN Workouts And Mindfulness Sessions

The MSN Health website allows you to take part in special workouts and mindfulness sessions in which you can earn around 50 points for completing two of them per-day. Two is the max you can do in a 24-hour period, and the caveat is that you must watch these videos from start to finish, with the majority taking around 30 minutes each.

Update: Unfortunately, these workouts and mindfulness sessions aren't currently giving out any Microsoft Rewards points, and we're still waiting to see if the rewards will return.

  • MSN Workouts and Mindfulness Sessions = over 1000 points per-month

Weekly Tasks

Next in our Microsoft Rewards guide, here are the weekly tasks you can do to earn points:

Weekly Set

Just like the daily set, you can complete a weekly set with Microsoft Rewards - but this is done via the Microsoft Rewards app on your Xbox console. It involves completing three simple tasks per-week, and once again you can rack up bonuses over time where you're gifted thousands of points for getting a streak going.

  • Weekly Set = at least 400 points per-month

Extras (Xbox Dashboard)

Another compliment to the daily sets is that you can complete extra little tasks on the Microsoft Rewards dashboard such as clicking links and completing quizzes. The quantity of these changes over time, but you're looking at quite a few of them showing up every week. Keep an eye on that dashboard to see what new offers crop up.

  • Extras = around 400 points per-month

Weekly Treasure

If you're booting up your Xbox around once per-day, keep an eye on the Microsoft Rewards app as at some point every week, a "Weekly Treasure" option appears on there for 100 points, and all you need to do is click it before it leaves.

Update: As of around August 2023, the Weekly Treasure hasn't been appearing on the Microsoft Rewards app. We're hoping it'll return at some point, but for now you unfortunately can't rely on this tactic for points.

  • Weekly Treasure = 400 points per-month (when it shows up)

Weekly Console Bonus

If you're lucky and you've been selected for this feature, you may see something called a "Weekly Console Bonus" on the Xbox app for mobile devices. This can treat you to anywhere around 100-400 points for a week's worth of tasks, but it's not necessarily consistent and it definitely won't show up for everyone. It's worth checking though!

  • Weekly Treasure = Anywhere from 100-400 per-week (when it shows up)

Monthly Tasks

Finally, here are the monthly tasks you can complete with Microsoft Rewards:

Monthly Bonus Round

At the start of every month, Microsoft Rewards gives Xbox owners the chance to complete a Monthly Bonus Round punch card, which requires completing some fairly basic tasks for a chance to acquire 1000+ MS Rewards points.

Update: As of September 2023, the Monthly Bonus Round hasn't been appearing on the Microsoft Rewards app. There's no word yet on whether it'll be returning in the future, but we're hoping so!

  • Monthly Bonus Round = 1000 or more points per-month (when it appears!)

Monthly Punch Cards

You'll sometimes see a monthly punch card available for around 500 points near the start of the month on Xbox, and this usually involves just completing a few achievements across a selection of games, but you also might find extra punch cards made available at random times, including some exclusive to the Microsoft Rewards dashboard on browsers.

Update: Sadly since May of 2023, the 500-point punch cards haven't been seen, but you can still take advantage of monthly punch cards on the Microsoft Rewards dashboard via a browser - they're just not as lucrative as they were!

  • Monthly Punch Cards = up to 500 points per-month

Xbox Game Pass Quests

Every month, you can complete a variety of Xbox-specific challenges called Xbox Game Pass Quests. These used to be based around completing tasks in certain games, but these days they're more about carrying out certain actions (such as earning achievements) on a consistent basis. You're looking at an extra 1500+ Microsoft Rewards points per-month by doing this, but they're a bit more of a grind than they used to be.

  • Xbox Game Pass Quests = over 1500 points per-month

If you follow our Microsoft Rewards guide, you can make around 20,000 points per-month. If we take some of the 2023 reductions into account, it's now harder to hit 20k - but it still possible if you dedicate a lot of time to the program.

The only downside is that, as we said before, some of these offers aren't available to certain Xbox users for a variety of reasons, and therefore your ability to earn 20k points might be limited. In any case though, if you live in a region that supports Microsoft Rewards, you should at least be able to make multiple thousands every month.

Hopefully this has been useful for you, but feel free to leave questions in the comments below!
