Can't get the "Achieve more. Earn more." On the Xbox Rewards dashboard to work. Did 3 cheever's for the weekly and and additional one, just to be safe. Still locked.

I was able to get this to work by trying to click it the next morning after.  I think the Xbox "day" resets sometime between 8-9 am.

 

Also possible that whatever the issue was just got fixed overnight.

the hot deals suck and the quests suck now. I hate how the secondary account on the console is excluded now from participating in the gamepass quests

Xbox Holiday Bonus rewards coming to Xbox next week.

 

Some big point rewards are in there for a total of 150,500 point over 12 days

 

We will have to wait and see what is needed for each daily punch card.

This will be interesting, got the same email. They will probably have a deal now on xbox credit, since I just got $50 this past weekend for the big sale.

Has anyone used the rewards automater app on Android? Is it legit or is a good way to get banned? Thanks!

A good way to get banned, using a search bot or automater is against the ToS.

No problem. Don't want to see my fellow CAGs getting banned from MS/Bing Rewards.

I kinda feel like hot deals are dead and in place of it they're just giving out way more points

Who has experience spending the "promotional credit" you get with MS Points (that expires after 90 days) on a physical pre-order from the Microsoft Store?  Since Hot Deals seem to be dead, I reckon I'll just keep saving up for the Scarlett and cash out at the regular levels.  Assuming pre-orders go live at E3 in June, I can have a good amount of credit redeemed and ready to use (not enough to cover the whole thing)... but if it's not shipping until November, will that credit expire if it's "allocated" towards an order but not technically "spent"?

 

The wording on the website is a little iffy so firsthand experience would be ideal:

 

If you use money in your Microsoft account, we'll charge you right away. If you use any other payment option, including payment backup, we'll charge you when the item ships.

 

Additionally, if I redeem $200 credit in June but earn enough for another gift card before launch, do you think it's possible to also apply that credit after the order is placed?

 

EDIT:  Googled and answered my own question: https://answers.micr...22292fcd?auth=1

 

(Tl;Dr:  I think I'm best redeeming as many points for credit as I can ready for E3 when pre-orders go live, and buying the additional MS credit with actual money so that the entire balance can be paid off with MS credit at the time of the order, thereby spending the promo credit before it expires.)

The best way to get points is to gift 1000 from other accounts.

Why are you guys saying Hot Deals are dead when there is a Hot Deal going on now?

What hot deal are you seeing?

 

The only thing I see the redeem rewards section that is not normal points is the free Elf movie rental for 0 points.

Fair point - I meant in terms of MS Credit mostly, since the last batch was DOA and we haven't seen another deal on that since mid-May.  But even overall, the quality and quantity has been sporadic.

I gift 5k each month and am still able to redeem $10 on the second account whenever my nephew needs $10 for Fortnite. Also I put the home address in California so there’s no tax charges.

Since everyone is good til 2022 lol maybe we’ll see some GPU deals next year. Thanks to ms points I haven’t paid anything out of pocket for Xbl and digital games since I bought a 360 in 2013 :).

Can we access these Xbox holiday reward daily things from a browser, or is it on the console exclusively?  I can't find much about them.

Doesn’t look like you’re missing much? Looks like you just get points for buying stuff and not for free.
