Sean Carey - August 3rd 2022

Microsoft appears to have quietly expanded its Microsoft Rewards programme to a bunch of new countries, meaning many more users can finally start earning points that can be redeemed for things like Xbox gift cards.

Previously, the loyalty programme was only available to those in the US, UK, France, Germany, Australia, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, Singapore, Italy, Brazil, Mexico, Spain, Sweden, Norway, Belgium, Netherlands, Japan, Hong Kong, and Taiwan. Now, as spotted by the folks over on Resetera, Microsoft has recently updated a Microsoft Rewards support page, adding another 38 regions to the list.

If you're unaware of what Microsoft Rewards is, it's a loyalty programme that lets anyone with a Microsoft account in a supported country earn Rewards Points for searching on the web using Bing, buying games, playing games, and completing tasks like Xbox Game Pass Quests. Earned points can then be exchanged for things like Xbox and Microsoft Store gift cards. You can register for Microsoft Rewards using this link.

At the moment, we don't know how well the scheme is supported in the above countries, and you may not be able to get in on things like Xbox Game Pass Quests or the Microsoft Rewards app on Xbox. If you're from one of the new supported regions and have signed up to Microsoft Rewards, let us know how you get on down in the comments.
