I just looked. One month of Gamepass Ultimate is 12,000 points. How are you earning that many points?
They're not. There's no way to constantly get GPU monthly off of Bing points.

It takes longer than 5 minutes, but for the sake of argument. Say I do enough work in searches etc etc to get "free" each month. At 5 minutes every 30 days I've done 2.5 hours of work. In less than an hour of real work, I make enough to buy a 3 month pass at retail, with change left over. It's a better deal for me to actually spend an extra hour at work every three months and then spend my free time not working for less money than I make at my actual job.
Lol, we are all impressed. I'm still gonna get a XSX for 80% off retail for those few minutes a day.

Is there any expiration date on these? Can I purchase them now and activate in a few months?
Mine never expired. They cap out at three years. I save my codes and just put a calendar/phone reminder every four months to redeem a code so I don't forget.

5 minutes a day X 30 days a month = 2.5 hours of your time each month (150 minutes)

You're "working" for around 4$ an hour....

Don't know about YOU but I bill at a SLIGHTLY higher rate than that....
I love how people think that 5 minutes is so valuable. Meanwhile they will be on instagram / twitter for hours.

I'm gonna spend a few minutes a day, you will keep paying indefinitely. MS thanks you.

Yes, it's too simplistic. Thanks for telling me that my evaluation of my time is incorrect. Just like the other posts about people wasting their time, the assumption is that I should spend my time the way you think I should. To me, this activity requires daily activity to be effective. I don't use Bing because it's absolute trash still. Therefore it's exactly like work to me. I don't take a brain break at work to do other work, and I don't work for someone else for such a low price when I don't have to.
meanwhile on planet irony...... something something arguing on slickdeals is a money-less waste of time something

Imagine going to a site called Slickdeals that revolves around saving money. You provide a completely legitimate, not to mention free alternative. And people dont like it.

So, tell me. I just got on and spent 10 minutes on Bing and only made 80 points. Where are you getting 26k points in 20 days?

No. Doing quizzes, surveys and other stuff. So again, please tell me where you're getting 26k points a month. I'm interested but I don't see a possible way.

Did about 13k in Oct punch cards alone, all are readily available on the Xbox points app, some now expired.

In fact, this morning I think I got 2.5k from the three new punch cards alone.

Any other questions?

I actually specifically said there was nothing wrong with you choosing not to participate ("If you don't like the program or would prefer to simply pay cash, there's nothing wrong with that"). I simply pointed out the valuation of time can be more complex than your post seemed to indicate.

I chose not to participate in the program back when it was Bing Rewards/Xbox Live Rewards for basically the same reason you gave, but after seeing a thread like this a while ago, I reevaluated my time value and decided to give it a shot shortly before it changed to Microsoft Rewards. It has now paid for all my video games for the last two years ($300+ in credit). My intent was to maybe give someone else in this thread who might benefit from the program that same nudge.

26K in a month is on the high side for me. I'm guessing that high total might be due to a recent event that let people earn up to 10K for matching gamerscore earnings. I usually average 15-16K a month with what I consider minimal effort.
  • Daily set (50-80/day)
  • Daily set streak (15/day, passive)
  • PC search using Edge (170/day)
  • Mobile search (100/day)
  • Mobile app bonus (280/week)
The first three are done by simply clicking links on or linked to by the MS Rewards site [microsoft.com], the second two are done in the mobile app (I use an old tablet). No manual typed searches required if you do it efficiently (using News sections).

That ends up being just short of 12K/month. Then I also choose to do some basic tasks in the Rewards app on my console that fill out the rest of my average. You can go pretty deep on the achievement/Game Pass quest side of the house, but the only play change I've made is strategically scheduling some achievements. In the last few months, they've increased the frequency of "punch cards" for 500-2,500 points that only require minimal effort (clicking some tiles) or mostly overlap with daily tasks.

Again: it's not for everyone, but if someone is avoiding it because they think it consists of grinding away on typed Bing searches every day, they should really look a little closer.

Well said. People putting out little to no effort and cant figure out the math.

And yes, 26k is on the high side but 16k-18k is in ballpark most months...which is more than enough to keep getting those 3 month subs stacked up.

Has anyone done this recently? Especially current game pass members?
No one has "done this recently" because it doesn't happen until November 10th. At that point GPU will include EA Play, so all existing EA Play subs for GPU subscribers will get converted to GPU at a 3:1 ratio (i.e. 1 year EA Play = 4 months GPU).
