Eeeh, if I can find a cheap enough 12-month card, then I'll get that since mine expires on 6/11, but otherwise, I'm just getting one entry.

Xbox Rewards is a joke as usual. :roll:


Heaven forbid anyone get 20 MS points for doing a 4-5 question survey every month, a cashback % of purchases made on XBLM as MS Points (depending on the offer(s) of the month), VIP Avatar prizes, and the possibility of winning one of the sweepstakes of course.

Compared to the old Diamond Card program, XBL Rewards is pure win.

I've gotten at least $20 cashback in MS Points since being a member for doing what I would have done anyway, buying content on XBLM. Plus the VIP prizes (MS Points, XBLA Games, Avatar; hats, outfits and props, etc).

On a side note, I also won nearly $2,000 in MS Points in a seperate Xbox LIVE promotion. Then there is the guy who won the $48,000 MW3 Jeep Wrangler for doing a MW3 survey every day for like a month or so.

I really don't understand all the complaints about Xbox LIVE Rewards. It generally takes minimal effort. Then again, nobody is forcing you to purchase or signup for anything you aren't interested in doing in the first place.

It's like any other cashback and/or loyalty program. Be realistic, it's NOT as if you are going to be getting 50-90% of your purchase price back as Microsoft Points.

That one entry you get for registering for this "Gold" promotion could end up getting you the Grand Prize! :roll:

I think it might be point dependent? How many points do you have? I only have 550 and am VIP.

I think it's the number of VIP rewards you've earned. I have a 2 on mine. One is the 1-year Rewards anniversary and the other is for Halo when Anniversary came out. I guess I have enough achievements in the series or have played it enough hours or something.

The 100msp for a marketplace purchase is for your very first marketplace purchase ever so if you have made a purchase prior than when you signed up you will not recieve it

I have a level 4, but the guy that posted the pic above me has earned more points than I have so it's definitely not according to that.

Which sucks the bucks as it will ALWAYS be showing on the Xbox Rewards page even though your not able to do it.

Nothing worse than being informed that you missed out on something FOR THE REST OF YOUR TIME IN XBOX REWARDS!

It's especially lame considering most users made their first purchase literally years prior to Rewards coming into existence. Just another MS trap to entice new blood.

what is the mail in method.
here is a line from the rules page:
You will receive sixteen (16) entries into the Promotion with each correctly submitted and received 3" x 5" card.

not in australia of course, stupid.

In for 50...

No really, I remember a few contests game developers had, where very many of the winners submitted post cards.

This. It has nothing to do with how long you have been on Xbox Live but does seem to somewhat correspond with how long you've been a Rewards member (the longer the more likely you might have received a VIP reward). Look under "VIP Rewards" and the number of items listed there will correspond to your VIP Number.
