IGN says: Recently, Microsoft sent out e-mails to select Xbox Live members inviting them to try out an Xbox Live rewards pilot program. Now, the company has revealed the exact details of that program (via Gamasutra). A special page has been posted on xbox.com detailing all of the rewards. And in cheesy infomercial fashion, it promises that the more you spend the more rewards you earn.
The rewards program is currently only open to select pilot participants and will last for six months. Those participating will receive Microsoft point kickbacks for doing select actions on Xbox Live. Things like purchasing or renewing an Xbox Live Gold Subscription earn you points, as well as subscribing to Netflix, participating in program surveys, and making Marketplace purchases.
