Now, when they say "play" all they mean is have the game running right? Like, I can load up a fitness game and go to bed. Do that a couple of nights and Bingo free points?

So Dance Central does not qualify, but Brain Challenge does? That makes zero sense.

I thought the same thing. How can this not include Dance Central? It is a better cardio workout than any of those other games.

Does anyone remember about what day they pushed out last month's marketplace rebate? It says 11/30 on the site but that's probably wrong. Still, it seems odd that it isn't even pending yet this month.

During normal months, they let'em loose by the 15th.

You could always check your history on billing.microsoft.com for random point deposits--just don't forget that in December they didn't accrue and just deposited them directly as you earned them (except for the Monthly reward).

Thanks. Is that the old billing site? It seems much improved. Still has the points sunset thing:

* The transactions related to Microsoft points will be shown for a period of one year at most.

Anyway its was 12/5 in my case for the rewards rebate.

Correct ... and in December, they dumped your pending balance on 12/1, plus if you gained 2000 MSP by 12/10, then you got another payout on 12/15. Otherwise, your payout will come around January 15th.

FYI to all, I've updated the OP with as much info about the "Lose Points, Gain Points" promo as possible. Obviously the search results of only 28 add-ons invisibly tagged on Xbox Marketplace as "fitness" is incomplete, since "Dance Central 2" alone has more than 2x that many add-ons. Therefore, I wouldn't get too discouraged if Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now) by "C&C Music Factory" isn't specified, because it obviously belongs to one of the games listed.

Already called out on that ... for example, why isn't horse riding qualify in "Gangnam Style" if it's an Olympic sport? :lol:

Here's the forum post where I take them to task on which games qualify for game add-on purchases:
http://forums.xbox.c...9/t/425571.aspx

Also, I asked for clarification on eligible games linked in FAQ vs. eligible games listed on Rewards website, since I really don't want to have to rack up 20 hours in "Brain Challenge"!
http://forums.xbox.c...9/t/425566.aspx

Lastly, in both, you'll see I'm making sure our gameplay & purchases don't need to be completed by January 31st, 2012. :lol:

why you mad bro? Just kidding, thats pretty fucked up. I was blown away at the requirements for the points rebate, that people are not getting in on it is maddening, and on top of all that youre probably sick of halo 4 now... maybe.
this will definitely make me stay away from similar promos from them, so thanks for the warning.

um when I checked the deal on the dashboard, I definatly saw the dance central games and kinect sports included at least in the add on department, so I'm thinking the links are faulty information and dance central does count

edit-just checked again, its in that new year resolution thing on the dashboad, then go to the join live rewards or whatever, and then press right too see eight of the elgible games, which include both kinect sports and at least dance central 3
