FYI, for those attempting to rent this game from Redbox to get the Operation Completion achievement for the Best Buy offer.. You need the second disc to install the Multiplayer content, so you cannot play Spartan Ops mode while renting from redbox because you only get disc one.


this is wrong. you can install that stuff from the 2nd disc OR you can download it. I rented the game and got the achievement as well as playing a bunch of other multiplayer.

I bought two $50 Amazon Kindle gift cards and got the email from AMEX that it went through. Applied them to my account and can use them for just about anything that Amazon sells (not just Kindle related items).

I already got the $50 off $100 confirmation email. But I haven't got the $10 credit for enrolling. Anyone else has the same experience?

Spartan Ops can be played single player, why would you need Xbox gold to do it?

It's still multiplayer as far as the Xbox is concerned. You just don't have anyone else in your party. That way they can charge you for gold.

Ah. I wouldn't have guessed that since I used the 2 week code before trying it. I suppose that means it can be clarified to be 'you need xbox live gameplay to play online', and not gold. You DO need gold for the 'upload a file to your file share' achievement, though, as irrelevant as that is...

Bought $100 in Amazon cards at Best Buy and already got my email back from Amex saying I qualified for the $50 back.


So $35 already and another $50 from this? Really a crazy good deal, I have to do this ASAP.

Barely got time to do the campaign playthru on Sunday. And did Spartan Ops yesterday.

Bit of a longshot but hoping to get qualified for the Bestbuy promo by this Sunday. It would line up perfectly with the cash I'm gonna drop on the WiiU:pray:

Just to clarify, you got the email that you qualified for the "spend 100 get 50 credit" before you went out to buy the gift cards right?

After syncing your card, did you remember to go to the Xbox Dashboard and click the button that redeems that $10 credit for syncing? The $10 one doesn't happen automatically.

No. You need to finish a mission, then get the email. If you do it beforehand it will not count. The email can take a few days.


Ahh I completed the mission but did not wait for the email before I bought my Vita. My fault for not reading the terms.

On Saturday I got the confirmation email from AMEX for the Best Buy deal, later that day bought $150 in iTunes cards for $110 ($10 gift card and 20% off Reward Zone offer) and this morning I got my $50 back (shows from Best Buy actually not AMEX).

So in the end I got $150 iTunes credit for $60.

Only credit of this deal I haven't gotten yet is the Wake Up John offer for beating the game, need to look into what I may have missed about that one.

I never said spend $100 right now -- the person I was responding to asked if it had to be a single purchase or if multiple purchases were ok

You need to wait for the confirmation email saying that the offer is activated and after that you need to have a single $100.00+ charge on the card to get the $50 credit (you can't make multiple purchases that add up to $100)

If you dont have anything to buy for $100+ then just grab a $100 gift card and use it whenever you like


After getting the in-game achievements, do we need to go back to the dashboard offer to claim them manually like the $10 credit promo? Or is the email notification from AMEX automatic?

In the past Amex Sync promos used to post it as a regular credit, but this year they started using the retailer's name on the credit (if you click the + sign for credit details, it'll show the Amex promo name somewhere in there)

This way you know which retailer you got the promo for and most importantly they don't have to pay full cash back on your purchase

Before: $100 XYZ purchase, $50 general Amex credit, you pay $50 & get reward pts on $100
Now: $100 XYZ purchase, $50 "XYZ" credit, you pay $50 & get reward pts on $50

Email came automatically in maybe 3 days? They say it could take up to 7.

That's smart on their part. I wonder if the Best Buy Reward Zone counts it as the full price too, I should watch my pending points.

I think you just wait it out until Amex's system checks your XBL gamertag for the achievement so it may take a few days

Promo is from Amex so BB wont know about it (Amex just looks for a $100+ BB charge in your card activity and gives you the credit) -- you'll get the full RZ points

Silver members should finish off the spartan ops achievement asap. The 3x points offer expires this Sunday. I'm hoping to use my triple points coupon on a $100 gift card purchase in time to earn an extra $5 RZ certificate.

Yea, I don't think there's any time limit on actually redeeming the $10 one. McCarron suggested looking in the Halo 4 dashboard menus: "I last found it via a Halo 4 sub-section which still had the ad."

Got my confirmation emails for $25 and $50/100 yesterday. Today I spent $200 at BB, and AmEx immediately emailed me:

Thank you for using your American Express Card at Best Buy. If your purchase qualifies for a $50.00 statement credit, the statement credit will appear on your billing statement within 8 weeks.

More efficient than I expected. Looking forward to 10 + 25 + 50 = $85 credit in January.

In order to find the AmeXbox tile on your Xbox 360 to "load" the offers, go to the Games section of you Xbox 360. You need to actually "go" into the Games section, not just scroll over to it. I believe you select More Games on the left. Once you are "in" the Games section, you should see the tile for the AmeXbox promotion.

This is how I get to it each time to load more offers after syncing.
