Microsoft Wants To Pay You To Use Its Windows 10 Browser Edge

I don't see the point in Microsoft paying people to use Edge. You would think that people that are willing to switch to Edge and use Bing as their default search engine will immediately switch once there is no longer a financial incentive to use it. Unless you already use Edge / Bing then this is a win/win for sure.

The newly rebranded Microsoft Rewards آ– formerly Bing Rewards, which paid people for using Bing as their search engine (another product Microsoft says is better than a Google product but that very few people actually use) آ– will now pay you for using Edge, shopping at the Microsoft store, or using Bing. Users of Edge who sign up to Microsoft Rewards, which is currently US-only, are then awarded points simply for using the browser. Microsoft actively monitors whether you’re using Edge for up to 30 hours a month.
