Got the same email, took the quiz, also don't see reduced price on the Redeem page. Check back later I guess.

This email was auto-filtered into the "Junk" section of my Live account.  Never seen an official Rewards message from MS do that before.

I have this in my earn section now, i really hope they didn't mean 30% off game pass but in the e-mail they clearly say gift cards.

That offer is also listed further down in the Rewards email.  Clearly separate from the gift card promo description.

On my redeem page it's a separate reward page from the regular gift card. Says something like "take advantage of this exclusive offer of 30% off a $5 gift card in time for xbox one x."

It's showing as 3,600.

Eh if it was more than a $5 it would be a good deal. If you got 30% off a new game I don't think anyone would complain about having to get it from the Microsoft store

Just as a heads up, one of my accounts got the email for this promotion, and one didn't.  When I go to that link on the account that got the email, it shows me the discounted reward.  When I go to that link with the account that didn't get the email, it just takes me to the regular "select a reward" page.

I got my Rewards account unlocked recently after it was locked several years ago when I accidentally logged in while outside the country and tried to redeem some points. I'm working towards earning some $5 cards, but no email for me unfortunately.

Did you actually click the link in the email and pass the quiz that it takes you to?  It didn't show up for me until I passed that 3 question Halo quiz.

 

If you did that and it's still not showing up, I don't know what could be wrong.

Same here. Took the quiz and followed the link to the redemption page. No option there to redeem.

Ditto.

 

Following the link Touch3 posted (sans CAG's link-breaking redirect) takes me to a page that says

 

"Try again later

 

Sorry, there’s something temporarily wrong with this site."

Not on mine either. They do have a "hot Deal" once a month, as game pass sub was this month, where they take less credits to redeem. I'm not sure if thats what they are referring to being 30% off? Im on a tiny phone so I can't see it that well at the moment.
