I saw this posted on SlickDeals.net
 
Halo 4 for Xbox 360 FREE thru Microsoft App Builder Rewards

Just learned about Microsoft's App Builder Rewards. Their tagline is "Code apps. Complete quests. Get Rewards.". Seems like you can get some rewards without actually coding any apps.

Go to https://build.windowsstore.com/rewards and click on Step 1: Sign up for App Builder rewards and get 1,000 just for signing up.

Once you have created your account, do as many of the "Quests" as you can without actually creating any apps and you should have accumulated 3000 points total. This will require that you do the "Student" quest where you change your profile to say you are a student and choose your "school" from a list. You can always change your profile back after earning the points. Basically, use the black navigation bar on bottom of page to find any Quests you have not done already.

Many of the Quests make it sound like you actually have to follow through with something once you go to the linked site, but I got my bonus points by going as far as I could without doing anything major, then returning to the main site (you should then see your bonus total increase).

One of the Rewards is Halo 4 for Xbox 360 for 3000 points. If you do not want this, you can wait to try to earn 500 more points to get a free copy of Windows 8 Pro Upgrade.

Well that was easy and it's a physical copy. Just hope it doesn't get cancelled.

 

Thanks for posting OP.

These quests don't work for me for whatever reason. Not worth the hassle for a $5 game...

Thanks OP. It worked great for me, finished in about 5 minutes and ordered Halo! Didn't have the game yet so I'm happy.

I don't have Windows 8 either. Many of the quests are completed by just clicking the link.

Bummer, Halo 4 is sold out.

Already have (and love Gears 3), so I guess these points will rot, haha. (Unless I magically can get 5k pts for that 3m Live!)

Im pretty sure 3050 points is the most you can get. Unless you actually develop apps.
