Has there been a 20% off rewards discounts on Microsoft credit as of lately? When was the last one? Search was difficult for me.

Really? Fudgecicle sauce. Thanks for that info man... I've been waiting for so freaking long. I figured that they stopped if they didn't do it by black friday.

MS goes against what it says all the time but for the forseeable future? Signing up for auto redeem is the only way to get discount xbox gift cards from them.

emailed customer service email came through about 5minutes after, have to believe just coincidence. Decided to pick up Terminator game, looks cool.

 

Edit- really good game so far, but if you buy it wait until Tuesday to play has an easy 3 achievement in just a few minutes.

The discount is 8750 Microsoft Rewards points for a $10 Xbox gift card.  It can only be auto-redeemed after the first day of each month, but you have select that option on the Microsoft Rewards app on your Xbox One or S/X to set it up.  Hot Deals is dead and probably will not return, so this is the best opportunity to get discounted credit.

Yea... I realized where it was after the comment I made. You can't find it online... it must be on the xbox bing rewards app.

Also, to go with the 10,000 pt score, is the January for 2000 so you could pick up 12,000 from both, and of course smaller denominations from signing in and getting weekly and daily scores for each achievement.

Ikenfell is another easy one. (Turn on instant victory in options). Achievement guide on youtube is edited to 45 mins of gameplay, but with all the battles leveling up characters I’d say it took me 6-8 hours to beat the story. Also good game to play like 30 mins at a time if you want to just get your daily 50 pts after completing the 10k challenge.

To get this 10k challenge I’m gonna have to go through my many years of free GWG games to look for easy achievements lol, or at least find more recent games.

Every time they have this challenge youtubers keep posting essentially the same 10 games that I’ve already played.

So around 50 hours to get the equivalent of $20 real dollars correct?

Carrion can do both Xbox and PC separately for 1000g each. I think it took 3-4 hours to beat.

I feel like a lot of 360 era games would hand out achievement points left and right. I've played 10 hours of Cyberpunk and have racked up 15.

What I have found so far is that I'm actually enjoying a few of these indie games I would have never played before.

I noticed they no longer offer 5% cashback at gamestop. It was nice while it lasted.
