%$#&!@ I just spent like 800 on RB2 tracks that could have waited. Although with the RB2 import, I should still make it.

Wow, I have exactly 2600 points lol. I was planning to get the new Sonic and DLCs for Left 4 Dead series and Alan Wake so this is very good for me.

Has anyone got their 1200 pts from the Summer of Arcade event back in their account yet? Supposed to be in today hence "On or Around Sept. 30".

Awesome! I was planning on buying the new Blazblue DLC when it comes out, and with RB3 coming out in October, I know I'll be buying some songs to learn in Pro. :3 Thanks, OP!

does microsoft actually follow through on these promotions. i remember months ago when they had a free 400pts for buying/activating 1600pt offer, and i never got the 400pts deposited.

it's a little hit or miss. i had to email support about a Madden/400 point offer I received. i suspect with Summer of Arcade and this offer they are getting better at it.

email support if you don't get your points. you will get them. you shouldn't HAVE to email them...but what are you gonna do? free is still free.

Sweet. Hopefully the bc2 onslaught deal wins and I will at least be at 400, now if i buy plants vs zombies & limbo for 2400 & get back 800 it will be like they each cost 800 rather than 1200. I'm in.

Pretty good deal with the Alan Wake and Left 4 Dead 2 DLC releasing in October or good way to get Comic Jumper and Super Meat Boy for $10 a piece.

Was waiting for Laura Croft & Limbo to drop, this is basically 400 pts off each one. Sounds like I'll be buying those tomorrow.

Was happy cause I have 400pts and a $20 card. Then I remembered that $20 is 1600, not 2000 points =P

They couldn't have announced this before Claptrap's New Robot Revolution? :(

Well, at least I have exactly 2400 points left on my account!

Crap, I bought Toy Soldiers a couple days too early :[ Stupid mid-week promotional announcements. Ah well, L4D DLC, Lara Croft and something else should get me there anyway.

Well FML, after further thinking, I should waited til tomorrow to buy Hydrophobia.

Well I haven't bought Both RDR DLC and the New Borderlands DLC yet so it'll be a win-win for me.

Isn't this two 1200 point games? A $15 and a $10 will only be 2000 points.

Sounds like a good deal! I know I will most likely spend that much in October.

M$ promotions kind of suck. Why is there such a long waiting period? It's all electronic. Since there are no refunds anyway, it's not like I'm going to do anything. You should automatically get the credit AS SOON as you spend those points. The summer of arcade is taking forever. I don't even know if I was ever credited the points from last summer. Does anyone know if you can go in and check to see if they were ever put into your account?

Agree, it does suck, but it's probably because of some crazy accounting reason. Moving funds around, even virtual funds around, at a later date, means they can do accounting magic to make more money show up from investments and stuff. I know it sucks, but sometimes it helps to at least know there is a reason, and it's not just random.

Hooray, I still haven't gone and imported tracks from the $10 Amazon Lego Rock Band deal. That plus a few more tracks (or Deathspank) will work out just fine.

I have 1650pts in my account. I was wondering where can I buy 800 pts at? Or if anyone know if there's any live discounts for points right now? Thanks.
