not sure why everyone thinks Dance Central is not included. All 3 games are listed on the promotion page.

Those are listed under Game Add-ons, not games itself

I really haven't been paying any attention to this program but I just logged in to see what I have.

Looks like I've gotten 880 lifetime points - not bad for barely trying. I forgot to do the survey a lot of months too. Mostly my points come from 1 and 3-month renewals (which I piled on my account years ago but I guess it applies them every month or 3 and I get rewards points that way - nice).

But I also have 80 points from "MyAchievements – 2% Marketplace Rebate". Is that a percentage of the points I earned in that time? Because I am not getting many these days (though I did get most of them on Borderlands 2 around this time). But getting $1 back for barely playing all that much is an OK deal I guess ;).

Edit: Never mind, I see that is just a 2% rebate on purchases. I bought the Borderlands 2 Season Pass back then which got me most of that 60 MSP "bonus". Of course I got hosed on that when it was on sale last week - would have made out better just waiting since I barely used it anyway.

Can you pop in DC2 and just let it be and add up 20 hrs? Or you have to really play it ha.

I have yet to get my 120 points from the mayian thing and I haven't gotten a rebate on my purchases. WTF is going on with MS?

i got a reply in the rewards forum that they don't tally the apocalyptic reward until the end of the month and to give it up to 1/15 for it to show up as pending.

I joined XBL Rewards 2 days ago and it said to wait 36 hours for it to take effect.
But up to now, I hasn't. No email or anything. Should I just wait a little bit more?

It used to be up to 96 hours. I joined on day one, and it took nearly a week. Xbox Rewards is VERY slow. A few days is nothing compared to how long you'll wait for your points.

Played the Nike+ Kinect demo the other day, could actually see me maybe picking that up. My total lifetime rewards is 2250 now but yeah I don't think I'll get that fitness one this month.

I thought about doing this with Kinect Sports but then I realized I am probably spending more in electricity and wear and tear on the 360 for that 20 hours than the value of the points I'd get ;).

Install the game to your harddrive first. Disc won't even be spinning which is the bulk of the "wear" to your 360.

I have found that the Rewards stats seem to count all time in the game, so I imagine the same would be true for something like this.

They seem to be taking their sweet time on everything from December.

The MyAchievements points for October posted to accounts on 11/8 and the ones for November posted on 12/5. The November points probably showed up earlier because of their Apocalyptic Rewards promotion. Based on that, I'd expect them to show up as pending sometime in the coming week, and wouldn't get deposited until at least the 15th.

I had DC2 installed, left the game on and left my Xbox on for 24hrs now. Hopefully that'll do the trick ha. My Xbox never got loud and just warm to the touch. This thing is a beast, can't say the same for the launch Xbox and PS3 though.

Hey all ... Xbox Rewards figured out that the simplest answer is the best one, so the FAQ for January's "New Year, New You" promo now points back to the offer's own page for clarification. :lol:

However, they were smart enough to now say "eligible game titles" and "all addons for the following games" in the offer, so that settles any confusion in the FAQ they generated. I've updated the OP with the new wording.

Fantastic. Glad to see Dance Central has officially been added. Also glad they removed Brain Challenge, since that made absolutely no sense.

My pending list now shows the 100 MSP for the Apocalyptic Rewards promotion, as well as the 20 MSP for my birthday month. They're listed retroactive to 12/31 and 1/1 respectively. The 2% back and January survey MSP aren't showing yet.

My Apocalyptic 100 points Reward shows up now as well, but still no MyAchievements – 2% Marketplace Rebate for December.

Same here. However, my January survey shows as pending.

Same here as well. I sent quite a few points (~5000msp) last month so was hoping to get my free 100msp from it...

I Just had 310 points deposited into my Live account. So 100 from the Mayan rewards, 20 from the December survey and I believe the rest from 2% back.

The Rewards page takes a day or two to update - you should see the deposit record in a little bit ^_^

I had 260 deposited. Going by purchases on billing site (getting tired of having to get a security code every time I visit there), I spent 7,600 in December. 2% is 152, they've been rounding up, so 160 plus 100 for Apocalyptic covers it.

I completed my December survey late, it shows in pending as 1/1, so it probably wasn't part of the deposit.

Odd thing...I got 150 deposited into my acct, which is from the Apocalypse and possibly 2% back. But only the 1/1 Survey and Apocalyptic Reward is showing as 'pending'. The 2% is no where to be found. I'm hoping that it just needs to be updated.

Even though I'm gold it says upgrade to gold on xbox rewards and I don't see apocalyptic under pending even though I spent 2800 points.

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).
