If you're a fan of Microsoft, or if you just have a Microsoft-related story to tell, and you also live in the United States, you should be aware that the company now has a new initiative for you. The Redmond giant is currently asking Microsoft Rewards members to share their Microsoft related stories and is rewarding 500 bonus Rewards points for doing so.
To begin telling your story to Microsoft, all you need to do is to head to your Microsoft Rewards Dashboard and click on "your story matters." After you do so, you will be redirected to this web page, which lists areas that Microsoft would like to hear stories about. The areas range from Microsoft Rewards, Surface, Bing, Cortana, Skype, and Xbox. Since Microsoft has so many products, there is also an area for "something else" which covers all things Microsoft, and areas which can relate to any other stories you have in mind.
Clicking on one of these specific areas then opens up a survey, which asks for your story, big or small. As seen in the survey which we received above, Microsoft wants to hear about a memorable moment, about Microsoft's role in your day-to-day routine, or about your favorite Microsoft Product. You can tell the Redmond Giant anything that you would like to share, and it does not necessarily have to be about a specific Microsoft product, but it must be on anything related to Microsoft.
If you wish, you can provide your first and last name, and also your state. You must, however, provide the email address associated with your Microsoft Rewards account, as this email will be how Microsoft delivers you the 500 points in the future. Additionally, Microsoft may also use this email to contact you in case they have fan opportunities. As the fine print suggests, Microsoft may also use your response to promote Microsoft Rewards, but will not use your email for marketing purposes. If you're under 18, the company also won't use your submission for marketing.
How big of a Microsoft fan are you? Do you have any interesting Microsoft Stories? Be sure to share them to Microsoft, and if you're not in the United States or ineligible for this promotion, tweet them to us @OnMSFT, as we love to hear from our readers and the Microsoft community!
