yah, I have to imagine if there was a list that it would seem like they are giving preferential treatment to some apps/games at times if they were excluded for some reason, but at the same time it is annoying to have to pick search yourself and hope you make the right choice. I almost want to be the jerk who copies and pastes the entire list of apps in the support forum asking if they are eligable each month and see if they actually respond to it with an answer.

10 hours on a Sports App?

I sure hope ESPN3 counts, because I've already put in about 3 hours this weekend.

Benefits of having a school that's not popular enough to get on TV but to have a crew there. Plus US Open for the rest of the week. :D

3D MiniGolf (400) on 8/29 [and of course it's on sale for 200 this week! :wall:)

I'm still gonna wait a few days before I contact them, but if you want to contact them now you would want to post a message in the Xbox Rewards Forum on Xbox.com.

I gave them their 96 hours and then posted in the forum. they're really responsive in the forum especially if you're cordial. don't be like a lot of crazies in the forum who are practically demanding that rewards support fix any problem ASAP.

Still no points pending, nor is my September survey pending. My post from Friday still hasn't been answered, but a lot of more recent posts have been. I need to bump mine to make sure they see it I guess, tried but Xbox.com won't let me sign in at the moment.

This will be the last time I partake in these rewards, unless it's just the 5% back on all purchases or something like that. This has been a little bit too much of a headache to save $3.

To clarify, this seems to be the rollout of the Achievement-based rewards announced earlier this year. I can't look up the Gamerscore requirements right now but bottom tier gets you a "gift" during your birthday month, midtier gets you the gift plus 1% back on all Marketplace purchases, and top tier gets you the gift plus 2% back. Not bad at all.

I don't know where you're seeing the 1 purchase thing. You get 2% back on everything you buy every month. If you spend 4,000 MSP in October, you get 80 MSP back. If you spend 800 the next month, you get 16 MSP back.

Geez. Guess it's time to splurge on the sale this week. I did mention before that Microsoft/XBox is the Gamestop of digital sales, rewards, and offers. Major Nelson and the XBox Rewards teams are puppets of whoever pull the strings.
