Rock Band Blitz and Deadblock do NOT count. I think some people are getting confused with it saying "confirmed" as not eligible. Only the games under the first list in green count.


I was confused by that, too. The final list just says "confirmed" and nothing else like the green list, whereas the red list says "confirmed as ineligible"

Wait, so Deadblock counts according to the first page? I'm on the fence about buying that on sale and probably will. But if I buy that I may considering grabbing some pinball tables too. Has anyone seen the post confirming deadblock (and hopefully the DLC too). If not, I might make a new thread myself in the rewards forum.

Oops, I included "Dead Block" in the upper section? Sorry about that.

Also didn't think saying "confirmed as ineligible" was confusing, since that essentially means that Xbox Rewards Support has specifically said they're not eligible.

Oh well, hope the list is still helping folks out!

Added a 3rd category for items where Xbox Rewards Support talks about the purchase, but don't give a specific answer one way or the other. One example of this is the "EA Sports Season Ticket", where the app is free ... but the points you spend are via in-app purchases, which Support says they can't track.

Does Wrestlefest count toward the promo, and will it actually be out on time? I am guessing the answer is NO since the other WWE games don't count, since it's "sports entertainment" and not simply "sports".

because a lot of people think car racing is a sport (IndyCar, NASCAR, F1, etc.). boat racing... not so much.

don't shoot the messenger. I don't think car racing is a sport either. it's someone who's better at turning a wheel and controlling pedals than another person.

but yeah, some weird choices. Pinball! FTW!

alright, I'm done for this reward.

I picked up a couple of pinball packs for Pinball Arcade for 800 points. I picked up Kinect Sports Season Two Basketball challenge for 200 points. And then I picked up Tecmo Bowl Throwback for 800 because it's fun, simple, and has never been on sale.

now gimme back the 240!!! :p

I've bought 3 of the Pinball Hall of Fame DLC packs (newest one Monster Bash/Gorgar came out on Tuesday people!!), that's 1200 points right there so if I get the Pinball FX2 Marvel Avengers DLC 4 pack of tables at 800 points I'm all set then?

Still hard to believe these are considered "sports games" but I'll take the points!

Added the following to our list, in this last-minute rush to assist folks in the forums:
  • Burnout Paradise
  • Burnout Revenge
  • Fight Night CHAMPION
  • Madden NFL 12 GoD (but not the Ultimate Team in-app purchase)
  • Madden NFL 10's Ultimate Team DLC

And these titles didn't meet the bar:
  • Split Second ... Cornelius rolls his eyes from Rewards' ignorance :-(
  • COD Black Ops' Rezurrection map ... Cornelius is rolling on the floor laughing out loud :lol:

well, i'm not the one to be asked the question as I don't work for the rewards department. :)

it's too late now but the question should be asked in the official rewards forum. usually they reply within a couple of days at most.

now that you just have a few hours left, it's up to you to take the gamble. If I was making the bet, I would assume it's any and all of the FX2 tables as being part of the deal.

Thats what i assumed as well. Part of me just wants to run wild and buy a ton of fx2 tables, but just to be on the safe side, i think i am going to buy nfl blitz for 1200 then do what i can using the tables ONLY listed on this thread to buy a table to make up the rest of the 1600.

It's probably too late to try for the promotion. Their months usually change over based on GMT or UTC, which rolled over to September a couple hours ago.

I hope you get it, but a couple of us have been burned on the timing of the month rollover before. If we can get a confirmation on the time, it should probably be added to the FAQ in the first post.

Q: When does a Rewards month end?
A: Either midnight GMT or UTC, which is 7pm or 8pm Eastern time. To take advantage of a monthly offer, try to make your purchases before 6pm Eastern on the last of the month.

Looks like the September promo has been posted on their FAQ, though the main page hasn't updated yet.

During the month of September, use any sports app for 10 hours or more and earn 100 Microsoft Points. App must be used between September 1, 2012 and September 30, 2012. To check if an item qualifies for this offer, please make a new post in our support forums.

Part of me was actually hoping for an avatar related promo, because I'd really like the Fall of Cybertron Grimlock and Laserbeak pets. But I should be able to qualify for September with MLB.tv.

I'm confused on the september sports app thing. Is that a video app like ESPN, MLB.tv, etc.? or will playing a sports game count as a sports app? and is it 10 hours total (e.g., 7 hours ESPN, 3 hours MLB.tv) or 10 hours in a particular app?

New survey is up, it asks about your sports watching habits (which sports, what devices you watch them on, how frequently).

I'd be surprised if games count, but you can ask on their forums. The linked FAQ says 10 hours total across multiple apps counts.

I've updated the OP with the September offer plus an offer for new Rewards members who sign up through a PAX Prime promotion. I kept the August info there in a spoiler tag.

I cannot understand why they would want us to ask on their forums what is eligible instead of just providing a list, especially this month. As far as sports apps goes, I think safe bets are ESPN, MLB.tv, and UFC.

judging from the survey, it seems like the ESPN app, UFC app and MLB.TV app

I would have to say it's 10 hours total from all 3 mixed. I doubt it would be 10 from just one app.

My question is for anyone with mlb.tv, do they offer like 1 free game for non members??? I never bothered to install that app

yeah, you get the random free game with the MLB.tv app. it's a very slick app. but it's baseball and highlights are enough for me with regards to baseball.

now if the NFL had a slick app like that, I'd jump on it.

I 'mildly' bitched on their twitter--to no avail:

@XboxLiveRewards:
"Want Points back in August? If you're going to spend 1,600+ on sports games & game add-ons, we'll give you 240 back!"

Me:
"It would be great to actually have a LIST, @XboxLIVErewards, what happened to the good ol' days of XBL Rewards?!"

@XboxLiveRewards:
"@SangestheLurker Unfortunately, we are no longer allowed to post a list."

@XboxLiveRewards:
"@SangestheLurker To doublecheck eligibility, please check with the Xbox LIVE Rewards Squad on the support forums!"

and then, just because it seemed so obvious and silly to point it out: (and because I was feeling like a snarky shit I suppose)
"@XboxLIVErewards I've seen this, but there needs to be a "firstcheck" list of eligibility foremost; this itemized inquiry stuff is nuts."

I'd like to think that, if enough of us made a commotion, it might get noticed... but then there's no saying they'd actually do anything about it.
