Bing Rewards launches on mobile, but not for everyone

Now you can earn rewards for using Bing on your mobile device, as long as it's not a Windows Phone.

Snubbing its own mobile OS once again, Microsoft brought Bing Rewards to iOS and Android devices Wednesday. Already available for desktop, the program helps hold down Microsoft's 18.2% share of US searches by giving you credits every time you use Bing. You can then redeem credits for gift certificates to the likes of Dominos and Amazon, but not yet on mobile; that and Windows Phone support are "coming soon."

You earn 1 credit for every 2 searches you complete, up to 10 credits daily. Which means, if you start now you could Bing yourself $1 short of an Applebee's Chimicheesecake by St. Patty's Day. To take part, sign up on the mobile site using your Microsoft ID or Facebook login.
