Xbox is set to reveal the brand new version of the Xbox Live Rewards Program today adding new features like earning 1000 reward points by playing free games for gold games etc
Hopefully they bring back the monthly survey again. Those were a guarantee money maker. I didn't like the ones where you had to buy stuff to get 5 cents back.
I checked it out and the survey is there. However it is not clear how much the points are actually worth in $.
1000 points = $1 I think.
5000 = $5.30 http://rewards.xbox.com/faq...
When they first introduced the program it was supposed to reward you for playing games and earning achievements. Now it is all about how much money you spend on digital stuff.
Is ms bringing this back? I remember signing up way back in the original xbox days, but didn't it get canceled? Sois ms bringing this back? The digital thing sounds good I have dl'd all my games I would hope I get rewarded for that! I have not heard anything about this since xbox till now.
That was a different program I think your talking about the one where they sent you a card and you were supposed to receive discounts at stores and online but it never really worked out. This is a different program that they started like a year or 2 ago where originally you earned points for achievements and the amount of time you played games and the points would add up and be converted into Microsoft points. They changed how it worked a few times and now basically you get small rebates if for example you buy 5 digital games or 5 movies in a month. You also can get a small amount for taking the monthly survey. Points are converted into currency at a much lower rate than they used to. Basically all they did was change the look of the site but its the same thing.
Ooh.. I didn't even know about that, thanks for the info. Seems lame though I buy a lot of digital games but 5 in one month?!
hmm interested to see what it is.
by far the WORST reward program in gaming
How is this so bad? I am a gamer Gold member with GS > 75,000... That gives me 10% on every digital purchase. I also buy my MS Gift Cards at Costco ($47 paid for $50 cards) so that is 6% off. I save 16% on every digital purchase I make now! Couple that with my EA Access 10% and every EA game is 26% off... Plus if I buy 3 new games by the end of November at regular price they will give me 25,000 reward points.... Giving me another $26.50 back on $180 spent... I don't see how this is so bad.
