A: Rewards Points do expire, so be sure to use them by June 30, 2012.
I wonder how they differentiate between Rewards points and purchased points. I may have missed it, but I didn't see anything in the Rewards FAQ or Terms and Conditions that state which points are used first.
For example, say I have 1,000 MS points and I receive 200 Rewards points. Between now and 6/30/12, I only spend 1,000 points. Were the 1,000 spent points all purchased points, and the 200 points expire? What if I buy X points after receiving Rewards points, and spend X + 1,000 points, still leaving 200 on 6/30/12? Will those be considered purchased or Rewards points?
I don't expect anyone here to know the answer, I'll e-mail their support for clarification. Just putting it out there that there appears to be a loophole in the rules that may allow them to expire points unless you can show your points balance got zeroed out at some point after receiving Rewards points.
