Yes, even those Bing points... although for me being in Australia they are only worth 12 pts.
If you go to the Bing homepage, click on the Rewards medal next to your profile name, then select "See all" next to "Earn Points Faster", the Rewards page will open and if you look on the right side of that screen there will be a "Points Breakdown", click on that and it will show you all the ways or earning Reward points. You'll see Edge Bonus Rewards on the left.
Hope this helps.

Great question @QueenNini
I came here wondering the same. I suppose you could add the Bing Chrome Browser Extension to Microsoft Edge Beta just to make sure. But yes, those rewards are the bomb! Why give my data away to Google or Yahoo or others for free, when I can score me that Target Gift Card!
My concern is/was that the Bing Rewards pages actually states that only Microsoft Edge used on a Windows 10 operating system based platform is eligible. I am beta testing Microsoft Edge on Windows 8.1, so that would disqualify me if it were limited only to Windows 10. If I discover that the rewards are not being applied to the Windows 8/8.1 beta version of Edge, I'll come back and update. I just heard about Edge of Windows 7 and 8 today, but have been already using Bing Rewards.

Thanks for the thoughts there @Drew1903
However, I run several businesses in addition being heavily dependent on film production and audio editing software. I originally transitioned to Windows 10 and used it for several years, until a poorly tested and improperly released Win 10 update created major issues on my computers that cost me a lot of money and at least a week of trying to troubleshoot the issue, which didn't get another update or resolved for several months, (which I can not afford to be down).
Windows 8.1 is extremely stable and always has been, in addition to it being my favorite operating system of all time (and my history goes back as far as Win 3.1, early pre-windows versions that eventually led to win 98, Apple os, Lisa (pre Mac) up to Win 10, OSX, and Lynx. I've used nearly every operating system created since the 1980's.
For my businesses and film production, Windows 8 is still currently a much better option than Windows 10, with very few issues.
True, the deadline is coming
Starting this week, Microsoft will start notifying users of non-domain-joined Windows 7 Pro devices about the looming end-of-support date for the operating system.
