Nice! But since the codes expire in 90 days and I haven't found anything I want to buy in weeks, I think I'll be holding on to my points for now.

Finally, had to spend 50,000 over the flash sale, too many good games, but still have 36K to eat these up.

Only negative is that Xbox credit expires, so can’t redeem too much!

Good point on the dates! Didn't cross my mind since I needed a controller and preordered cyberpunk.

If I preorder a game using Xbox credit I cashed in my bing points to get, then cancel the preorder, does anyone know if I’ll get that credit refunded with a new expiration date or do I lose it?

I saved up 100,0000,00000 points so I’m getting the new Xbox series x with that. It took me 5 years to get but now it’s time.

Congrats but I think 550K is the most points you are allowed to redeem in a calendar year.

 

I only have 105K saved myself.

I returned a physical game I bought once with rewards credit and the refund had a 60 day expiration. That was about a year ago. Never tried with a digital pre-order though.

Have they ever brought back the 1-year sub of XBL Gold? Any chance it might come back? Mine's expiring March 24th, was hoping to get another free year.

12 month Gold has not been a reward option since July of 2019.

 

Doubtful it will come back since MS seems to be pushing Game Pass Ultimate.

Rumors are saying that the new Xbox and PlayStation could be $600, because they are so much more powerful than the current gen and a PC with similar specs right now is around $800.

 

I heard a rumor that I might get laid tonight.

Looking to go gold using some reward points, 20,000, that's a lot of points for 3 months.

 

Does the xbone still allow gold privileges (multiplayer online) for all gamertags as long as there's a  gold tag on their home console? Gamepass Ultimate?

 

Gold privileges may not be the correct google search phrase.

Yes to both. I'm not sure about gamepass quests though for sub accounts.

Sub accounts do not get gamepass quests.

Gamepass Ultimate?

 

 

Hi,

 

I have not written here for a long time.
This is a good occasion and I will answer you with pleasure.

Firstly, it is worth much more, if possible, to take a year of "Gold" - 12 months for 29 000 points.
Also, "Xbox Live Gold" subscriptions are sometimes offered for less, like 12 months for 24 000 points.

 

Secondly, yes, all the privileges of any subscriptions are accessible to all profiles on the home console.

Any player on it can play the "Games with Gold", the "Game Pass" games and the multiplayer modes.
It is only important to remember to acquire the "Games with Gold" in time, each two weeks, with the subscribed profile.

 

"Game Pass Ultimate" includes "Gold", "Game Pass" and "Game Pass for PC".
("Game Pass for PC" is currently at 1 $ to begin)

 

Promotion

As there is still an excellent promotion that adds 1 month and converts all memberships to "Ultimate Game Pass" for 1 $, if this would be your first subscription to the service, it would be a good idea to wait after you have got a year of "Gold", before to take the promotion, which would give you finally more than a year of "Ultimate Game Pass".

Some people seize the opportunity to acquire the maximum amount of three years this way, but this would already be a good deal.

 

Feel free to ask any question you may have,
Hoping it can help you,

Best regards.

Umm..The 12 months of Xbox Live Gold is no longer a reward option.

 

The last time it was offered was July of 2019.

 

Now if you want to efficiently use your points on Xbox Live Gold you should use your points on Xbox/MS Gift Cards when a Hot Deal is available and pay for 12 months Gold directly from Xbox.

 

Standard Hot Deal is 20% off so 8000 points for $10 (8000 x 6) = 48,000 ($60) 

 

So you'd get 12 months for 48K points rather than 80K (redeeming 3 months Gold four times).

How are codes/money from other stores redeemed?  I mean, a gift card code would be sent to the email address if I were to redeem points for, say Burger King or Walmart?

Thank you very much.  I may wait to store 3 years and then go "Ultimate".

All Gift Cards except Xbox & Microsoft are e-mailed to you as a code.

 

And in case you missed my post - 12 months of Xbox Gold is no longer a reward option.

Do you have to have a payment method on file on the Xbox to do it this way? I'd rather not have one on file.

Not for me.

 

Are you taking about the 3 achievements for Weekly Set this week or the Achieve more. Earn more card?

 

My Weekly Set achievement counted today when I earned it.

 

I normally do my Achieve more. Earn more daily achievements later in the day so they count for the following day.

 

The punchcard popped normally when I activated it today too.

All of it. None on the daily, or the weekly's. The Play a Game Pass Game and Log Into the App worked fine. I'll try again later, but not too much later as it just seems to stop recognizing that day after 6 or 7 mountain.

Happened to me yesterday. Played 3 game pass games and received about 20 achievements.

This morning I loaded up the weekly challenge and still 0/3. I downloaded a game to my phone (Wordament) and after 3 achievements it finally recognized them.

50 point daily achievement still did not work for me either.

After all of this I checked the game pass app and weekly “get an achievement in any game pass game” finally showed up as well.

The one for playing farming simulator was also delayed for me too as that was one of the games I played yesterday.

My cheevos from early yesterday, like 5 or so, just popped on the dashboard and finally credited on Rewards. Micro$hart astonishes me with it's ability to constantly drop the ball in a game it created lol. if it's not the Bing/Reward issues that seem to happen out of of nowhere and for no apparent reason, it's Win10 updates that they force on users.
