Got 160 points yesterday. 20 (Jan survery) + 100 (Apocalyptic Rewards) + 40 (2% of 2600 = 52 points, doesn't add up).


I don't think the January survey points would be deposited yet. The MyAchievements rebate and Apocalyptic rewards would be dated 12/31 and get counted, but the January survey would be dated 1/1 and have to wait. So the 160 you got fits. The MyAchievements rebates have appeared to get rounded up to the nearest 10, so that 52 became 60.

People have said the 2% won't show as pending. It will show up under Points Awarded.

Got 160 points yesterday. 20 (Jan survery) + 100 (Apocalyptic Rewards) + 40 (2% of 2600 = 52 points, doesn't add up).


You received 100 (Apocalyptic Rewards) + 60 (2% of 2600 = 52 points, they rounded up). January Survey hasn't been credited yet.

280 points awarded. That's the most I've got in a month ever. Meh. It'll go toward the Black Ops 2 pass when the DLC finally starts hitting.

With my birthday bonus that just missed my October high of 320 (300 for Shocktober and 20 for survey).

I keep wanting to add little things like this to the wiki (along with the billing site in order to check deposits, etc) but man... the OP is so full of every bit of fineprint that I couldn't figure out where it might fit and not look awkward. :-s

Reddjoey, grandpappy to so many imporant OPs, if you're out there... please here my pleas! :pray:

(Or if Cornelius, or anyone else out there feels much braver than I.)

I never got the 100 points for buying a certain amount of Halo 4 content. I bought the War Games Season Pass for 2000 points. Lame!

Dammit. Renewed my family gold the day before I signed up for Rewards and missed out on 400 points. I asked if they could still give them to me and got denied. Bastards.

I recently bought a Kinect and started having fun with Dance Central 3... does anybody knows if the 400 points fee to import songs from Dance Central 1 and 2 do count for the "spend 800 MSP on add-ons, receive 200 back" offer? Also, is there an "official" way to track time spent with games eligible for the promotion, or should I use third-party trackers like Raptr?

If you mean, does MS have a way to check for yourself your gameplay time, then no.

Imports might count as add-ons, best to head over to the official MS Rewards forum and ask them directly (as with most anything you're on-the-fence about).

Wow you read my mind. I was wondering this earlier when I finally opened and played DC3. I went ahead and imported DC1 and I'll probably buy DC2 tomorrow then import that too since I have a gift card.

I made a post in the Xbox Rewards forum right now so I'll update here if/when I get a reply. If they say no, I'll probably buy the Rihanna and Pitbull packs since I've been eying them anyways.

Also, I use Raptr in general. It does a great job of tracking hours and reminding me how many 1000s of hours I've spent gaming. A note, if you fall asleep or step away from a game it doesn't know so that'll inflate your time.

I got a response from XBL Rewards about whether the DC imports count. In short, they do not. Here is their response:

Hi Cleaner7x! Thanks for reaching out. No importing songs would not be eligible for the January Fitness Rewards offer. Great question. Cheers!




I'm enjoying my imported tracks and between all 3 DC games plus Marathon Pack 1 & 2 I have well over 100 tracks. I'm still considering buying some more that I've been eying or I'll wait to see if they do more large packs.

Entertainment for the Whole Family
Gather the family because we're rolling the red carpet right into your living room! This February, Xbox LIVE Rewards members will receive 200 Microsoft Points when they rent or buy five HD Movies, seven HD TV Shows, or one TV Season Pass on Xbox Video. You choose the option that best fits your family! It's the perfect chance to catch that movie you missed in theaters, or that show you couldn't squeeze into your schedule. So curl up in front of the TV, dim the lights, and share this special offer with the people you love!

So with this new 200pt reward, what's the smallest TV season you could find on Xbox Video? Here's a 3-episode complete series run of "Do Not Disturb", which Huffington Post described as:
"Fox had high hopes for this Jerry O'Connell sitcom directed by Jason Bateman. The show was made by the same people who did "Ugly Betty," "The Office," and "The Tudors." But after three episodes, the network canceled the show, making it the first casualty of the 2008 season."

Anyone find anything cheaper than a 400pt Season Pass? :lol:

P.S. Hey, leave it to Wikipedia to have a complete list of shortly-aired shows!

(check out the synopsis for "Heil Honey I'm Home" ... I'd kill to see this show!)

I don't always buy :360: points, but when I do, I click this CrazyGameTime affiliate link below

What about "buying" free content. The marketplace doesn't really make a distinction. Seems like that would trigger the reward.

"Buy or rent 7 HD TV Shows" -- There have to be some free shows in HD.

"All movies and TV Shows featured on Xbox Video qualify for the offer. Rental and/or purchases must take place between February 1, 2013 00:01 UTC and ending February 28, 23:59 UTC."

Good idea, worth trying at least... funny that 5th season isn't available at all in my country, even funnier is that we seems to have got only seasons 0, 2 and 4... anyway, 4's episodes are in HD also, so I've fell back to those :)
Anyone knows if free movies do exist on the Marketplace, too?

Very doubtful, seeing that neither redemption codes nor instant wins (from S&S+) have qualified for previous XBL Reward promos. But, hey, no harm in trying.

Some free HD TV shows:

Do No Harm: Season 1 - Pilot

Southie Rules: Season 1 - Bill Roulette


Mankind Decoded: Season 1 - Lust For Luxury

Stuff You Should Know: Season 1 - Brains Gone Wild

Smash: Season 2 - On Broadway

The Face: Season 1 - The Fight to Make the Final 12

The Weight of the Nation: Season 1 *Season Pass is free too.

Worth a shot if it works for the freebies. Many of these are only free for a limited time.

I don't think that will work. It is only SD quality. The promo is for HD quality TV shows or movies.

Is there a stipulation in February's bonus that you must be, and remain, Gold status? I don't see it mentioned anywhere so wanted to double check.

My Gold sub ends tomorrow but I'm reluctant to re-sub right away. If I need to for this promotion I can keep it going. Want to take some time off though.
