Re: the last punchcard (the 4x 800 MSP card) If I buy 4 games that are around 400-500 MSP - does that count for both punchcards? (i.e. after making those purchases I would complete the punch-card for 4x 400 MSP with those purchases, and before I did anything else I would have at least 2 punches on the 800 MSP card?

Has anyone actually had their "purchases" punchcards start filling in yet to confirm that it's cumulative on the 4x 800 punchcard? I don't think I would want to bother with it at all otherwise, but if it's cumulative it would be easier pill to swallow for the extra 800 points. Especially if Best Buy also has that 400 Bonus point offer going on this week.

Yes, purchases you make towards the 4X400 punchcard also count towards the 4X800 punchcard. Mine have started filling in which is how I found out.

Great. So I think I'll be able to do this.

Can definitely grab 2 or 3 good sale games this week with no regrets. Hopefully next week's sales don't disappoint me - after I commit myself to spending these points. :booty:

I don't mind buying 1 or 2 games at 800 MSP if need be of course, but obviously sales are the way to go whenever possible. I can't believe some of the games that are 1200 MSP. :roll:

So my punch card for # of games has been filled for like a week...and I've been checking daily for my other punches (2/4 for MSP spending, expecting 3/4)...

So checked today and now I only have 3/4 for purchased games and still don't have my 3rd punch for MSP spending...send Xbox Rewards twitter account a message, but this really makes no sense...

Anyone have any ideas why suddenly a punch would disappear after being there for over a week? At least my billing page backs me, so I should have no worries, but it still is really weird....

I don't like having a sig, but for CAG, I figured I'd sheep along.

I, as well as another couple people in this thread, mentioned earlier that we were given 4 of the game punchcards after purchasing only 3 games. I just noticed that I lost my 4th punch (which is fine by me since I've only bought 3 games). Maybe they were going through and correcting these errors and they got over zealous and started removing them from people who legitimately bought 4.

I can also confirm this. Just had a punch taken away as well, but it was legitimate, as I had only purchased 2 games and it was showing 3 punches..

Now I'm 800 pts shy of the one promo, and 2 games from the other promo.. looks like I need to look for (2) 400 pt games. Hopefully some good sales next week. Luckily, Guardian Heroes appears to be a price drop, so I can fall back on that for one if nothing else..

No matter what I do I'll have to buy a full price game to finish out the 3200MSP punch card. Guess I'll buy Poker Night 2 since I enjoyed Full House Poker so much. I just hope they fixed all the major issues the original had.

Also, anyone else having issues with gaming hours being tracked? I know I've put in enough for at least a couple punches by now but I'm still at one. Hoping it'll still fill out before the end of the month since I'm able to fully dedicate to XBLA games since platting Ni No Kuni over the weekend.

Poker Night 2 is not a sequel to Full House Poker. It's a sequel to Poker Night at the Inventory. To my knowledge it's entirely single player.

i'm a bit too busy to sift through threads today (chasing my 2 yr old around the house), so i'll ask anyways, if its been answered please shoot/hang me. Has anyone elses punch-cards this month been redacted? for instance, i had all 4 punches for buying 4 games 400+ MSP each minimum, now i only have 3? Thx as always.

(EDIT) i see some people have had similar issues, but i bought 4 games for 400+ MSP. somehow i feel jipped? lol, guess i'll fill it once i complete my last 2 800+ punches anyways, all well :P

New survey is live.

Their FAQ doesn't have any info yet on what May's offers will be, though they have rearranged it a bit, giving MyPunchcard its own section.

That bodes well.

Fingers crossed we'll see a DLC based punchcard in the future.

I'm pretty sure it's about renewing your Xbox live gold subscription, I could read something like "renew and get double points" before logging in. I don't know if it means MSP or XP in multiplayer games.

PS: I was able to see that on the italian version.

EDIT: it's the may offer, not a punchcard. You get double MSP for renewing. 20 MSP for one month instead of 10 MSP and up to 400 MSP instead of 200 for a 12 month renew.

I really hope this isn't it. I've been cruising by on free trials, and have been saving my cards until they dried up. Heres hoping it's just something else in addition to the punchcards.
If they had sliced open my belly, my lunch would have spilled out, and I would've had to eat it all over again!

I was surprised yesterday to still see the April Punchcards linked under the current offers.

Then again, we don't even know for sure if Punchards will be a monthly thing yet.

Tweet from yesterday that info on the next Punchcard is coming.



Given the fact that they added a MyPunchcard section to their FAQ and one of the answers mentions "The amount of available Punchcards each month will vary." makes me think it will be monthly (though hopefully that number isn't 0 for any months).

They might've wanted to process all the April punchcards before replacing the page content with May's. Shouldn't be too difficult to include listings for both April and May on the MyPunchcard page, or have an intermediate page that jumps to separate April and May pages, but who knows how they're planning to keep the site updated. The Punchcard page says 3-5 days to update, while the FAQ says 96 hours (4 days). It shouldn't be too difficult to have a daily check run, but whatever. They apparently need to work out some kinks, given that people got purchase punches they shouldn't have, which were then taken back.

A couple people in the DOTW thread said they saw May's offer was double points for renewing XBL subscriptions, though I don't see that on the Rewards site. I see the regular rebates and a Coming Soon in the section where they generally put the current offer. I think someone that had seen it mentioned they were in Europe, perhaps it's different offers for different places?

Yeah, isn't that nuts? I saw talk in their forums (& in our own XBL deal of the week thread) about double-bonuses for renewing expiring subscriptions, but it was mentioned that the US wasn't included.

I had tweeted them last week and said I was hoping they'd announce this month's awards before I went to work, and they responded with a laugh and that "We'll have news about more May rewards soon." Apparently "soon" is a very subjective term.

Shame they won't be having that bonus for renewing. I have a 12-month card laying around I would use. However, I'm sure there'd be a lot of backlash for that one.

Appreciate the update. How disappointing though. Oh well, I'll be buying DLC I've been eyeing for some time anyway.

Bummer. I wonder what Microsoft will think in comparison. I'm sure they made a pretty hefty chunk of change due to last month's punchcards and I see very few people gunning for this month's punchcard.

Silver lining-hopefully they won't try something so horribly meager again, as there is no way this will get much participation. It requires 5,000 msp spent on tv shows or movies...

Remember when deal of the week first started-fucking avatar and theme discounts. They'll wise up, I hope...
