Logged in today and found some weird stuff in my account. Had 890 points yesterday, checked and I have 1990 now. Apparently they credited the 220 MSP rewards I had earned for this month to my account 5 times. My girlfriend had her 100 points added 4 times. Just thought I'd give anyone else who was confused about this a heads up.

something with me this morning. I had 1310 points last night when I went to bed and I now have 2510 in my account. 1200 points, I'll take it!:bouncy:


EDIT- I wonder if they can just take these points back? I may need to just spend them quick like:twisted:

Update: Since i have posted this they have given me another 270 points, meaning i've gotten 6x the rewards from rewards.xbox.com

I had a total of 270 reward points pending from last month. I woke up to find i had over 1,000 microsoft points that i didn't have yesterday. I investigating making sure that someone didn't hack my account or something, and eventually found that the rewards xbox site glitches and gave me my reward FIVE times.

This is not necessarily a "DEAL", but CAGS may want to check their microsoft point balance to find a surprise increase in free points.

So far, this seems like it is not YMMV. If you had points pending, then you will have received the glitch and gotten a lot more microsoft points.

I don't think they ever did anything about people illegitimately getting points using that exploit awhile back, so I don't really see them doing anything about it now. They probably "lost" far fewer points on this anyway.

I asked this same question in the other thread.

This is a very good question. I have a higher balance of points than what they deposited, and i wanna finish getting the summer of arcade titles. So i can't really just go spend them crazily.

I'd say if they just added them and you didn't have any points before, use them. I contacted microsoft about this and the lady was like "WTF?" and said i could just leave it if i wanted. She made case notes about it saying i wouldn't be responsible for any charges or anything.

That's pretty awesome. All of my points went through last month, so I didn't have any to redeem on the 11th. :(

If they just happen to let this one slide, then I've got RE4 HD paid for September.

Yea, I had 3400 points and now its 5290! Now I'm supposed to get 400 points for upping my live sub and I have 290 points pending from rewards.

Lots of "270" points added. I figure ms will take those nice points away.

Guess this only happens for people who actively use points, eh? Checked my account and nothing there, but I never buy points so. . .

I was supposed to get 280 from Xbox Rewards this month but instead got 5 times that amount! Confused the hell out of me at first, thought someone had hijacked my Xbox account.

Also, poker360 how have you got an odd amount of Microsoft points? :S

Interesting. I got four deposits of 260 points totaling 1040.

Is this actually rewards related or have non rewards members gotten this too?

I'm a rewards member, with points owed to me this month, and I got a similar glitch: 260 x 4 = 1040 total added.

I would advise people to spend all their points, but sadly I can't do it myself because I had way too much before this glitch and there's no way I can spend all that...

Yup, got 100X6.

It's like someone on MS's end was impatient and hit the "Submit" button too many times.
