My streak got credited

 

I was finally able to put in a support ticket on 7-28 and I'm still waiting on a resolution. I sent them an email yesterday showing them that I had earned 6 achievements in that week which includes a Gears 5 achievement. I still haven't heard back, freaking ridiculous.

I just got another Gears 5 achievement today and I still can't complete the Gears 5 Punch Card because it doesn't give me credit for it.  :twoguns:

You have to make sure it is one of the new achievements added, not the original launch achievements.

I checked and the Punch Card says ANY Gears 5 achievement. Rewards Support manually added 500 points after I uploaded my Gears 5 achievements, screenshots.

Question: I got enough point to redeem two target gift card reward. Can I purchase two of it or is there a limit when I purchase one?

If it's like any of the other gift cards, you should be able to claim as many as you want. Though, why you would claim two smaller ones, and not one bigger one is confusing to me. You should be able to select the denomination of money on the gift card.

Same exact thing. Wouldn't unlock, but the monthly quest was tracking it properly. In the end, support credited the 500 points.

I also checked. Mine says “any NEW achievement in Gears 5”

Support gave me 500 points credit for the Gears 5 Punch Card, 2500 points for my Weekly Set which I completed and they gave me 40 points for the 4 achievements I did not get credit for and an extra 100 points just because I kept complaining like a 4 yr old.  :shame:

 

But I lost 200 points because each day I did not receive credit for an achievement I did not get the 50 extra points per day completing an achievement.

 

Just trying to save up for an XBOX Series X.

Lost touch with video games and all that but for some reason kept doing the Microsoft stuff..  Saw this thread and checked my points.  I am at 120K points. 

Best way to spend it? 

 

I have LIVE GOLD but it expires this October...

Wouldn't mind getting in on this Game Pass Ultimate everyone keeps talking about tho..

Can somebody school me on my options, since I read OP and then the Game pass page and I got lost in translation, specially about the conversion stuff..  12 months of Gold = 4 months of Game Pass?  What a scam! 

Wasn't there way to get your account into Game Pass Ultimate for $1?  Something about maxing out gold for 36 months and then doing Game Pass Ultimate for $1. 

anyways the best and cheapest method to get to Game Pass Ultimate is what I'm looking for..

Much appreciated!

You have the right idea. When you go from Xbox Live to Game Pass Ultimate, you get upgraded to GPU for as long as you are currently signed up for Xbox Live. Goal is to have close to 36 months of Live since that is the most Microsoft will let you stack. Once you're at 36 months of Live, upgrade to GPU and you'll have GPU for 36 months.

The conversion rate is after you're on GPU and try to add Live to your account

I think the magic number is 35 months, because you're paying $1 for your 36th month when you upgrade.

24 month code for Xbox Live is $95 at Costco. Use your 120k MS Rewards toward multiple 3 month codes, 20k per 3 months.

I've personally stretched 14 months out of a single dollar for GamePass Ultimate so far.

Don't think so but there is no way to use points at Costco is there? 

The 120K points looks like it will get me 6 months of Gold... wait I mean its six 3 month cards, so that would actually be 18 months..

Not too bad for 5mins of work a day...

Some do some do not, if it's Play Anywhere it's usually no problem. I have had some work that had separate achievement lists for the windows 10 version, but seems more often they do not work. Last week Surge 2 didn't work and this week looks like Neon Abyss isn't going to work for me. Both have separate achievement lists for the Windows 10 version.

Thanks, I'll stick with the console version for earning the ones I need for Game Pass.

Hit and miss on game, but achievements work on PC.  Needed 3 easy ones, played MS solitaire.

I don't think achievements work with the free play version. I havent had any luck and same thing for everyone on the MS Rewards reddit

They don't work. I faked out with juke moves a bunch of defenders and I didn't get an achievement. There's a YT video on how to get that achievement, I tried it and it doesn't produce an achievement.

 

What's weird is MS offered a Free Play Punchcard so I don't get it.
