Though it doesn’t have the best of reputations, Hulu actually isn’t that bad. Its has plenty of amazing TV shows, several which you can’t stream anywhere else, and there are times when I think Hulu may even be better than Amazon Prime Video.
Hulu no longer has a free-to-watch option, but there is a way to get Hulu for free — indefinitely. Yes, it’s a legitimate method, and it doesn’t actually require much effort on your part. All you need is a little secret.
And that secret is… Microsoft Rewards.
Formerly known as Bing Rewards, Microsoft Rewards is an opt-in program that will grant you points for every search query you run through Bing. Once you amass enough points, you can redeem them for prizes — such as a month of Hulu access (using the Limited Commercials plan).
At time of writing, a month of eligible Bing searches is worth about 8,000 to 9,000 points whereas a month of Hulu can be redeemed for 6,800 points. Not bad, right? Just set Bing as your default search engine and your searches will essentially pay for your Hulu subscription.
And once you have an account, don’t forget to check out these excellent Hulu tips that everyone should know.
