Bing's Cashback program gives you a way to get cash back from Microsoft for purchased made through discovering them at Bing. In fact, they are currently offering double rewards, although it doesn't seem to be actually doubling the awards based on my tests. For more about this this program works, see bing.com/cashback.

What new features are coming to Bing Cashback? Greg said:

We are already considering alternative methods for receiving cashback for our next release, such as gift cards, but schools or another non-profit organization would also be something.

So, it seems like a form of "gift cards" are coming soon. In what flavor exactly, I am not sure. What is meant by schools or non-profits? Greg explains:

We would have to consider how to allow schools to sign up and manage their accounts, but I see this as something that you could see in a future release. For now, you could do something similar by setting up a PayPal account for the school and having people's account credit that PayPal account.
