Free $5 Digital Gift Card for Xbox Live when you spend $15 or more on Xbox Live and upload your receipt to your phone by texting "XBOX LIVE" to 30364.

 

Follow the Best Buy link here for full details. 

 

 

UPDATE: This appears to be part of a larger Xbox promotion called 'Get the Most With Xbox Live'.  The free gift card part of the promotion spans multiple retailers, not just Best Buy.

 

Full promotional details from Xbox here.

Too bad the details are a bit vague.

 

Damnit, I'm too old for someone to hand hold me through a deal. 

 

I don't suppose anyone else has more details on this?

 

If it only applies to Xbox live then I might pass...typically don't pay more then $40 for a whole year anyhow.

We've been discussing this in the other thread.  It's very vague and that's why I haven't bit on it yet.  Looks like it works on Live currency too, I think it's only one $5 per $15 spent (but again vague), texting it doesn't get you any help yet just a 5% off at the MS store.

I like this thread better than the other one. I mean...

1.  It was up first 

2.  It has a picture on the deal.

 What more could you want.

 

I was going to do a third thread myself but this on has it down so no need.

Do I have to spend $15 on XBox stuff at Best Buy, or do I have to buy digital stuff on XBL...?

 

Uhhh, nvm the wording makes it sound like you have to purchase stuff on actual content  ON the XBox itself, but I figured it out lol.

 

Why are instant email codes down. T_T

I eagerly await some figuring out exactly what we have to do because i cant figure out if i need to spend $15 at bestbuy on xbl points or on xbox live itself.

It's definitely at BBY because you have to text a photo of your receipt (presumably to MS) to get the $5 credit.

Wish this wasn't so vague.

 

Do I spend my current Xbox cash?

Do I purchase at bestbuy and then text the code?

I want the titanfall season pass anyways so might grab a $25 code tomorrow for the $5 extra. Thanks op.

We can learn as much, if not more, from bad games as we can from good ones.

That's my justification and I'm sticking to it.

If this works to the way I'm thinking--just buy a $15 XBL Card from Best Buy & pick up the receipt? If so, gonna pick up the Titanfall map pass through this route

I texted that and I got a message saying 'Thank you for texting in but you've already received this offer'

Just when I think MS takes the cake for stupidly pointless hoops to jump through with their "print out this origami cake, make it, shove it up your arse, take a pic, then show us on Twitter and we'll say 'Happy Birthday' to you", they go and do something like this.

 

When I read this, the "Spend $15 on XBOX Live get $5 back" translates to what would have been 2 years ago "Spend 1200 points on XBOX Live get 400 back", but I guess now it means to buy prepaid cards?  They've never considered buying cards as spending, but rather as a fund funnel.  Spending was redeeming on Live for games/movies/avatar gear.

 

I'm sure I'm reading it wrong, but in a larger way, they're writing it wrong.

I think the idea is that it's set up like a mail in rebate.  Make the slightest impedance to someone cashing in on your offer and enough people won't that it pays off while making it seem like you're running a great promo.

 

I texted that and I got a message saying 'Thank you for texting in but you've already received this offer'

 

I did the same just now and got the same response.

 

I would expect this to be updated at some point to either make it work or clarify or something.

I wonder what is the best route for this--ordering it online or purchasing it in-store. Need. More. Details.

Did you guys who texted the number actually send a picture or no? I'm wondering if we could just fool the system and send a picture of any BB receipt haha

Shows dollar cards multiple places and the other links for it include them.  I think this is just the case of a promo that was put up half assed and not active.

I just checked out the Ryse Edition $15 Microsoft currency and it links back to the $5 GC promotion. So now I'm back to being vaguely interested but not willing to be the first to do it. 

 

I need excuses to keep my XB1.

I do need some XBL currency but like people are saying: we need more details as it's too vague on how to claim this offer.

 

I'm planning to do the max since it's limit 10. $150 for $200 is not bad.

I just bought three 25.00 cards on Friday on one transaction and 15.00 on another. Does this mean they'll give me 5.00 for each 15.00 I spent or..?
