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.


That's just part of having a job. Everyone has a boss and I doubt anyone thought Major Nelson was the Top Dog.

When did this start? I just bought something for 800 MSP yesterday. Does that mean in the next 96 hours, I will have 16 MSP pending?

2. Timing: The current phase of the offer begins on September 27, 2012 at 4:00 a.m. Coordinated Universal Time (Greenwich Mean Time) ("UTC") and ends on June 30, 2013 at 3:59 p.m. UTC ("Offer Period"). Please visit http://www.worldtimeserver.com or another world time database to determine local time. Administrator's computer is the official time-keeping device for the Offer.

Tier 3: If you are an Xbox LIVE Rewards Gold member with a Gamerscore of twenty-five thousand (25,000) or more as of the first day of any month during the Offer Period, you will be eligible to receive the Tier 3 Offer.

http://rewards.xbox....and-conditions/

I'm not so sure Sept 27-30 purchases qualify. I would have interpreted the above as the Gold/Gamerscore check not having yet occured and purchases towards the rebate don't start till Oct 1 unless they count Sept 27 as the first day for the month since it's the first day of the promo. Unfortunately I thought you could game the system by timing the last day of a Gold sub to end on the 2nd and continue getting rebates on purchases for the rest of the month but you must be a Gold member when the purchase is made. So I guess two checks are made: a gamerscore/Gold check on the first of each month and if you qualify a Gold check when you make a purchase.



As for when you get your points:

When will my 1% or 2% rebate be deposited into my Xbox LIVE account?
A. The refund will be calculated once at the end of each month that the purchases were made during and will be awarded by the 15th of the following month. Deposits of the Points refund will follow the Program’s current Points deposit terms. For more information, please read the Terms & Conditions.

The site acknowledges that I'm top tier so I'd say the system has already tracked gamerscore.

October offer is revealed:

http://rewards.xbox.com/faq/#fmi


When I saw that they had a link to "eligible content", I was super-excited to think that they'd reverted to the good ol' days where things were spelled-out and not where we had to guess (and alternately, the list provided suggested games/dlc I wouldn't have thought twice about on my own otherwise) ...then I saw it was just a list of movies & tv shows. Boo I say, booooo! *grabs his favorite "world's smallest violin"* :-({|=

Would like to finally put these achievements to some use.

im probably wrong, but could it have anything to do with the fact that you used monthly codes as opposed to charging your credit card?

Did either of you extend an active subscription or had your prior Gold sub expired (if you had been Gold)?

I actually considered this. Although it's never said anywhere (like the majority of the Xbox Rewards rules), I wondered if they want a full year subscription or auto-renewal on.

I had been Silver since probably February or March.

how soon did you take that screenshot after you renewed? because it can take a few hours for the status change on your account to propagate to all the database servers. that's why they give the notice that it can take up to 72 hours for things to take effect (even though it's usually much much faster).

15 days later. Just took it to post here.
Xbox forums has several people asking about this as well. Glad I'm not alone - hopefully it gets resolved soon. Patiently waiting to make several purchases.

Well this is what I have come up with so far between the pms of only about 4 whole people lol

its on the rewards forum and as soon as i get a definitive answer on these I will report back
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I have been speaking with some fellow gamers on a few forums, and we decided it would be easier to make one post with all of the content we were wondering about, as far as items that qualify towards the October Rewards Promotion
Here is the list; its not very organized :P
---------------------------------------------------------------------
Dark Shadows on Zune (rental or purchase)
The Walking Dead (We know this counts, but we were wondering if we had to buy additional episodes in game or off of the marketplace)
Skull Girls
Castlevania: SotN XBLA
Castlevania HD XBLA (sorry, the title deprives me currently)
Castlevania HD XBLA DLC
Resident Evil 4 GOD
Resident Evil: Code Veronica GOD
Dead Rising: Case Zero XBLA
Dead Rising: Case West XBLA
Decay Episodes 1-4 XBLIG
Resident Evil 5 GOD
Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City GOD
CoD: Black Ops GOD (considering it has zombies mode)
CoD: Black Ops DLC (again... zombie mode)
Skull Girls XBLA
Hell Yeah XBLA
I Am Alive XBLA
Amy XBLA
Hydrophobia XBLA
Deadlight XBLA
The Dishwasher Series XBLA
Penny Arcade's On the Rain-Slick of Precipice Episode 1 or 2 XBLA
Penny Arcade Rain-Slick Episode 3 XBLIG
Dante's Inferno GoD
Stubbs the Zombie XBOX ORIGINAL
Castle Miner Z XBLIG
I MAED A GAEM WITH ZOMBIES IN IT!!!11!!!! XBLIG
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Thats all I have for now, im sure I will think of more.
Im assuming this deal doesnt stack, no 4000 pts spent for 600 pts back correct?
Any items considered in this deal that go on sale, via Sales and Special or DotW count as well?
I ask about Sales and Special app because i know the purchases show up in a different market place or something of the sort...
Thanks for the response in advance and when I think of more I will post here and PM the admin that answers...
Currently playing: CS:GO, GTAIV, Reach, Shining Force (GBA), Fire Emblem (GBA HHH), Bloodycheckers, Doom and Destiny

I thought you were going to add mine from your response in the XBLA thread but no worries, I posted in your thread on the reward support regarding:

Dead Space Ignition, Dead Space DLC, Dead Space 2 DLC, FEAR 2 DLC, Alan Wake DLC, and the Pinball FX Plants vs Zombies Table.

Costume Quest is a fantastic candidate as well as the above poster mentioned. Should check on it too.

Like I said, no worries man. I threw it in there.

Heres to hoping they respond with relative quickness. I'd like to purchase some content I'm missing sooner rather than later.

I wonder if the Black Ops map packs count for the October promo since they contain the zombie maps. I need to pick those up and they're on sale right now...I still hate to spend essentially $21 for 3 maps though.

Hello, as I'm new to the "world of Xbox 360", I was wondering if someone could tell me where do we put in our birthday info for Microsoft to know about our birthday month ? I can't recall including it anywhere when I initially signed up for Xbox Live or Live Rewards. I may have done it, and just forgot.....would like to at least be able to see it, if I did in fact already take care of this. Thanks in advance everyone.
