Damn is right. I guess I bought my second one a month too early

Probably wouldn't matter since my first is already my Home console. I doubt I would have gotten the offer

Is this offer also available at the Microsoft store?

Edit: I'm a fucking idiot

So glad I saved my microsoft gift cards from that promo they had a while ago!

Wait,exactly where did you see this offer OP? I'm afraid it might just be exclusively for certain people.

It's still to much

Whatever, $399 and $75 to spend on a game(s) is a great deal.

I don't know, I'm a gold member who doesn't have an Xbox One and never received this offer.

How about some appreciation for the customers who bought Xbox Ones one day one, despite being weighted down by that $100 brick known as the kinect.

No offer for me. I probably wouldn't have gotten a One anyway, but I have a friend who would have loved to get this. I let my Xbox Account go unused from 10/2010 until 5/2014 lol. I guess they don't see me as a prime person to get the offer

My offer looked exactly the same as the OP, except I was offered $100 instead of $75...

I would go out and buy an Xbox One right now if I got this deal.  Unfortunately, I haven't received any notice.

 

It's supposed to be pretty obvious on the dash right?  All I see is the summer sale.

 

Would this be a transferable deal if the original receiver were to pass it on?  Or is it a buy+activate type deal?

Interesting. I haven' let my XBL Gold lapse in nearly 3 years, but I haven't had an xbox 360 for nearly a year, so I obviously can't see if I got the deal. I planned on buying a One this month anyway. Will be nice if I endup getting the credit!

I didn't get this email but I got a message on my dashboard this morning stating:

Anyone else get something similar?

Wow, the moderators used this topic as their own personal shooting range. Most of the posts were deleted. Mods must be board. Or maybe Cheapy told them to fulfill their quota. Hahahaha.

I did too! I was almost excited when I saw "as a valued member" thinking maybe they decided to inform people through messages about the $75 GC deal but then I read on and saw it was for Walking Dead Season 2 EP 1 :\

Or the mods just don't want people having fanboy arguments in what is supposed to be a deals forum.

 

Also it's bored not "board".

 Im a day one owner who would of perferred a kinectless xbox but going in I new I could wait and get it without kinect eventually or get it at launch.  I made my choice like every other day one buyer.   $100 isnt what use to be and I don't feel cheated at all,  ive actually got some use out of it with "record that".  Anyone who is serious about not wanting kinect can easily sell there kinects on ebay for $75 easy.

Shit, that's around $240 completely wasted.


well i asked whether you stood behind your opinions and you said "Always" so i offered up the same bet that i gave to Fire Thief. You think the price of the xbox one will drop to $300 + 2 games by end of year? Let's put a bet on it.

I wasn't a Gold subscriber during that 4 years. I would have never got rid of my 360 before if I was. That, and I only had $.75 in my Xbox wallet.

 

In fact, the only reason I got the Gears Slim was because I never played Gears 3 or Judgment. I also wanted Titanfall but wasn't going to spend $500 on a One just for that

Microsoft has confirmed that this offer extends to the UK and Canada in addition to the US. It appears that the first posted pics of the promo just happened to be tailored to the American market.

 

"This short-term promotion is offered to select Xbox fans in the US, Canada and the UK," a Microsoft spokesperson told Eurogamer when asked about its availability. "We are always looking for opportunities to bring promotions like this to our customers, but we have nothing further to share at this time."

Too bad they wouldn't offer this to ALL of their Xbox 360 subscriber base. I can't really say if they couldn't afford that since technically they're just offering their own store credit. But doing so could dramatically increase the Xbox One's sales figures.

I don't necessarily feel cheated, I knew what I was buying. What I do feel is reluctant to buy anymore Microsoft hardware early.

*sigh*
 
My business is Microsoft's privilege, not the other way around. Acknowledgment of a customer base that has stuck with you through the rough is hardly a farfetched concept. Nintendo did it recently with their 3DS.
 
You all need to stop acting like it's some sort of sin for early adopters to ask for some appreciation from a company who is running a promotion that is allegedly a way of "saying thanks."
