Have any of you tried ordering from the Pizza Hut app yet?


No but I might because of the DLC car in Forza 4 for ordering pizza hut through the app. However, I'm trying to eat better so that may not happen :x

Got an e-mail with both a code for the month of Live & the avatar award (it's a couch). Nothing on my 800 MSP. I just remembered I was getting it, so hopefully I'll get it before GGXXACP stops being on sale.

& here's a pic of that avatar couch:

I was going to post this but you beat me to it. :) I got both codes as well.

If anyone is interested, BestBuy has an in-store coupon for GCU members to get 400 MSP free with a purchase of 4000 MSP. They email you a code for the 400. I used a $25 rewards certificate to make it even cheaper :) Now to wait for my 800 MSP from Xbox Rewards!

Hopefully we have a nice sale next week so I can spend some points again.

I want q backlog mountain for my avatar:bouncy:


I want that too. The only problem is that I'd need to shop at a Jumbotron dealer to be able to fit that backlog on screen at the moment. Although I am proud of myself. Today I passed on a few games I really want to play that were under $10 at a local used store (Shadow of the Damned, X-Com: Enemy Unknown, Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit) realizing that the new xbox is coming out next year and that games will only get cheaper especially in the next two years or so as companies like Ebgames get rid of their stock to make room for PS4 and the Xbox 720 (Is there any one else besides me who prays that they call it the Super Xbox?).

Just a quick question. Got the rewards, but is there an exclusive for all three punchcards, or is that the couch?

As mentioned on his podcast, the #xboxreveal tweets are already written & queued up, so he just has to copy/paste, rather than doing "live tweeting". Also, he gets to work at 6am, so plenty of time to paste it into his blog ... as if we don't have our "Spylon" secret weapon finding the deals beforehand. :)

Glad to know :D

(Is there any one else besides me who prays that they call it the Super Xbox?).

Uh, I don't like that name :cry: Xbox Infinity, or Next, or even 720 are better imo. We shall know the name shortly.

If you completed all three, then I think you get invited to a VIP event in the future. I'm not sure what that means though. I also completed all three, I guess we find out later on :)

It's permanent on PSN, so it should be the same on XBL.

It won't arrive until the end of the month. Check your pending points on the rewards site to confirm that it's there.

I've ordered and It's simple to use. They should add a big confirmation page though outside of "Your food is getting ready..." or something along those lines I forget. I only used it during the first week it was out because you got a extra 15% off their deals. I don't think thats the case anymore.

Just an FYI to anyone interested in this, BB has had 400 with 1600 several times in the past month. If you don't need MSP right now, you'd probably come out ahead waiting a bit;)

Ditto on wanting another good sale, haven't bought anything these last two weeks (maybe that's a good thing with our backlogs as they are8-)). Still holding out for a Minecraft sale, though at this point I wonder if it will ever go on sale for even a tiny amount:cry:

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

Well its not just a couch. Pretty cool if you ask me:)


Agreed. This avatar item is actually pretty bad ass to me. Starts off on the couch playing games, gets up and wields a sword n' shield, switches to catching a football, then nerfing someone with a dart gun and then back to the couch to game some more. Not just sitting on yer bum playing games. I think it fits me as an individual perfectly. So long Windows Phone avatar prop!!

Thanks for the tip Vila. I'll snag one of these for(hopefully) some good upcoming sales.

EDIT: Seems the Fallout 3 dlc is 50% off. Broken Steel, Point Lookout & Operation Anchorage are all 400 msp each. Dunno if it's permanent or what, since xbldb picked it up

That's a good point! The only reason I went through BBY is because of my rewards certificate. I thought I had $55 to cover the 4000 and an extra 400 MSP on top of the free 400 but I forgot I used $30 of it to buy Tomb Raider. The guy voided the transaction but after entering my email address so I got 800 free MSP while playing half for the 4000 at customer service. Otherwise deals like LordVila posted are better.

Speaking of backlogs, Raptr encouraged me to work on mine and I have beaten the campaigns of Spec Ops: The Line (awesome PTSD story), Halo 4 (meh), and The Darkness II (fun game and I'd love a sequel) all this month. Next up is Journey, Joe Danger 2 and Black Ops II. Last month I finally completed the Borderlands 2 story and this month the 3 DLC packs. Now I'm anxiously awaiting the next DLC in June and started my Psycho character. Besides digital sales I don't plan on buying anymore retail titles at launch except that LEGO Marvel game for my nephew and me. Otherwise it's the year of the backlog!

Someone is a party pooper. A preemptive strike on the one question everyone is waiting for in this thread's drinking game. That's okay, we shouldn't put an activity to impede building tolerance to my posts, so go ahead and take your sweet medicine because I am feeling like a multi-quote post. ^^



just got my email, with the month of gold and the avatar item. Avatar item is, as expected, a Xbox Rewards branded shirt, though it also seems to include a couch and controller for your avatar, so that's something I guess. Gold came just in time, as mine ran out today (go figure). Points are pending, so all around everything worked out:D


Got mine in as well. I am still withholding the month until the sales give me a reason to redeem (or if someone from friends list wants to play something, but I still have 2-week trials for that ^^). I welcome more avatar crap for variety, gotta keep the husk of Rare busy with avatar stuff if they continue refusing to tap into nostalgia as they have for the past few years. When I do redeem the Gold Membership and get the 800MSP from rewards, I'm seriously considering combining that with my accumulating Bing points then finally buy GonD Deathsmiles 2X (I like friskytanuki's Ghandi acronym), so that will make 3 purchases at full price by me this year so everyone else waiting on it getting a discount will be happy I took the bullet as long there are no good deals in the coming weeks coming.



So is it being advertised in a specific tile on the dashboard, or do you find it by just looking it up in "All Games"?


It is not advertised on the dashboard, like the other Arc System Works games on sale. I just looked the title up on the dashboard from the alphabetical listing under Games on Demand again. This is why I guess I am long winded, when I typed "I did not confirm" it did not clearly express the actual meaning of how I did not proceed past the confirmation dialog to actually make the purchase. From the US dashboard, Battle Fantasia is still listed as $19.99 but the confirmation dialog is still 800MSP. I did not buy it because I already have the game on disc, which I believe is priced even lower still, but I think 800MSP price the dashboard offers is a discount from its usual listed price (which I cannot be sure because I did not pay much attention to the title on GonD).



Original Pinball FX is back - http://marketplace.x...15-d80258410834


I was so excited when this happened, but disappointed when the DLC was not offered as well because I would have committed to purchases on those. A shame it got delisted again hours later. I felt the physics of the 1st Pinball FX was a bit more loose. The primary reason I think it still deserves a place on the 360 even with the sequel available is due to the scoring and multipliers actually working. Pinball FX2 actually has a bug with the Agents table which makes scoring much more difficult, along with nullifying every original table's LCD display to not reflect actual scoring (they almost all do nothing to add/multiply scoring). This parallels with the delisting of Doritos Crash Course in my opinion that the original still offers something better or different than its sequel, and is not rendered obsolete to justify a delisting.

There is no punch card app. As long as you're a rewards member, everything was automatic.


Thanks.

I saw it advertised and figured the ad on the Xbox screen was some app to check your progress [since people were posting their results]. It kept wanting me to download Internet Explorer and nothing happened.

Oh well, hope I spent enough to get the 800 point bonus.

I wouldn't hold my breath on a minecraft sale anytime soon. If I was you I'd go and try to buy a code off someone who won it free off Raptr or something like that as you'll likely get the best savings that way.

Don't know what poochie is but that's a George Rodrigue painting, it's part of the blue dog series. He's a pretty famous local painter and restaurateur from where I used to live.
