For the "New Year. New You" promotion last month, only 100 points is pending, but I know I got over 30 hours on my Kinect and spent over 1000 MS points on Dance Central 3 DLC. Anyone else getting the same problem?

Even at 3600 pts for the season pass its hard to bite. But seeing as call of duty packs take forever to go on sale it's not a bad deal.

how quick does the 200MSP get deposited if I redeem a 12 month code?

If I remember correctly, someone correct me if I'm wrong, they changed the deposit date from once every 1st of the month, to twice a month the 1st and 15th of the month. It also takes a few days afterwards for it to registered to rewards that you've renewed. Considering the current date, you be looking at midway through March at the earliest maybe not until the beginning of April.

Just a little correction..if you were already gold it will be pending/deposited that month your original gold would expire...for example if your activation month was september and you redeem a 12 month code right now you will get the 200 points in september when your NEW 12 month membership will start and your last gold membership "expires"...

I did learn this the hard way..I activated a 12 month code during the time where you should get 400 points...but since I activated while still having my other gold membership (which would have expired in september) I got my points in that month not in the one i activated my gold hum..)

On another note..just another Call of Dookie Reward BOO!

This is very helpful information. I renewed a couple of one month Gold subscriptions and an annual subscription a few months before my current subscription expired. I have bonus points for one of the single month renewals showing in my pending points, but I was wondering about the other month renewal and the annual one as well. Based on what you said, I should get the bonus points for the other single month renewal next followed by the bonus points for the annual renewal.

Edit: Just checked my rewards points right now, and I was given the bonus points for the 2nd monthly renewal sometime last month. That means I should get the 200 points for the annual renewal some time this month.

My 2% back in December showed up as pending in my account on 1/11 (a Friday) and the 2% back for January showed up on 2/8 (also a Friday). Maybe there's a Friday pattern there. In any case, I'm not really expecting pending stuff to show for another couple days. My March survey (taken 3/1) also hasn't posted yet, but that'll probably show up with the rebate.

My 2% back for February posted as pending. The only thing I bought during the month was the Ghostbusters jumpsuit for 80 points, so I only got 10 back. March survey points haven't posted yet.

Well, ain't that some crap. Already have the Black Ops II season pass. Guess us loyal people who got it already get jack shit again. Why don't they just change the name of this "rewards program" to "Operation Lure Silver Members into Going Gold". Still the worst reward program ever.

anybody ever get their 100 MSP for buying the War Games season pass ages ago? I've put in multiple requests with support and still nothing.

10 is 12.5% of 80 so they must give a minimum of 10 back per month. Which isn't that bad. I spent 480 to get the same 10 back.

For the % rebates, they've been rounding up to the next increment of 10. I've had a couple months where the exact 2% calculation ended with 2.x and both times were rounded up. This time it was 1.6.

Would be interesting to see someone buy only a BulletWitch DLC (20 MSP) in a month and get 50% back.

It is. Even the cheapest credit card rewards program throws you 5% cash back, and doesn't make you wait months of accumulating a set amount before giving you the reward.

Microsoft isn't stupid. They KNOW that most of us already bought the Black Ops DLC or the season pass. This is a grab for the fence sitters and the silver members. That's all the rewards program has been. The ability to "earn" rewards is always slanted toward the people who don't renew.

It's insulting to think that as someone who has invested around $10K in their system, games, accessories, subscriptions, and points; that all I've "earned" back is about $24 in points spread out over 2 years.

Piss & moan, piss & moan. That's all I'm reading of this.

Are you really crying about being an "early adopter" of digital content and not being patted on the back for it? If you're silly & impatient enough to have to immediately get content like this, you're reward is the enjoyment you should've had with it in the meantime while they try to squeeze a few more sales down-the-road that they otherwise might not have gotten out of others.

You're a CAG and should know, plain and simple, that it's a moral battle of whether or not to enjoy something immediately versus saving money by picking it up down the road since, virtually EVERYTHING is eventually cheaper if you wait, one way or another.

I understand disappointment, but honestly, I think you just want to bitch.

...And I'll have you know, I have two credit cards that give 1% cash back, thankyouverymuch.

cool, have been hoarding a bunch of MP, so I think I'll finally blow them and get the free 800. I'm thinking Minecraft, Fez, and Pacman:CEDX; Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet; RB Blitz; or something on sale to top me off. More food for the backlog monster

Hey, you look like you have a lot of money; how about donating some of it to my Extra Life drive?

I want to tell you but it's so very, very easy to find, I almost want to let you find it yourself. Eh, screw it. "Explore"

This also has me scratching my head.

Maybe the code will be revealed on April 1st? It looks like they've added the April offers to the site early (ie. "MyPunchcard").

See my comment above. Code is "Explore". Very easy to find. There is only one thing Tomb Raider on the main page. Checking right there is always a good start.

The scavenger hunt is starting this week since it ends a little early (April 20th)

And the code is "Explore" as Brash_Attack pointed out above ^
Still not sure how he found that, since the only places I've seen the word Explore don't make it seem like it would be a secret code.
