#14485021 XBL Deals - DwG: Assassin's Creed, Watch Dogs, more | Golden Week, Star...

$10 xbox reward is about to expire. Any recommendations? I had been tempted to pick the hot wheels cars for FH4 but apparently we'll be getting more of them in FH5 so no point really. I think I'd rather grab the mega man collection on 3DS or switch. Tough choices


Preorder something that's more than $10 and cancel. When it gets refunded, it will extend your expiration by a month and hopefully better sales in that time.

I feel as though I should know this....but, I have part of my account balance (from rewards) expiring at the end of the month. Is it possible to use this expiring balance to buy a game to gift to a friend? I've mostly went towards PC for my gaming and not really interested in anything that can be purchased for PC through Microsoft Store.


You could preorder a title that doesn't come out for a while, then cancel the order. Your expiring credit will be refunded with added time before it expires.

who's ready to spend $139.99 for a 512GB expansion, or $399.99 for a 2TB expansion? I understand why they're expensive, but I'm not about to spend the price of a console on an expansion.

I was tempted by the previous sale for $20 but figured it would be cheaper in November. "Included on Game Pass" is exactly how much I wanted to pay to play through the single player content.

139 GB download. That made me pause until I know I won't go over my stupid Comcast 1.2TB cap for the month.

I got the same message. Apparently, the game isn't scheduled to release for a few weeks. I'm debating complaining to support and see what happens

Complain about what exactly?? Hey you took away a preorder game that was priced as free that doesn't come out until Oct 1, compensate me?

Seems like a total stretch.


#14416719 Best Buy - "10 days, 10 games, $10"

Posted by nypickle on 18 August 2021 - 04:09 PM

I went into my Cyberpunk order and clicked on Make Shipping Changes. Surprisingly it offered free 2 day shipping, probably because the item is back to $39.99. Went ahead and made that change without affecting my $10 order price. Getting it Friday instead of store pickup Saturday. Now if only the steelbook could be shipped.

I got the code via dm. I actually submitted mine after your cag post (thanks to you and others for the heads up). I went with the first thing that came to mind, a Billy Madison quote.

I now have $30 on my account just from credit giveaways like this and the random $5's hidden in emails.

This won't expire, will it? I hear people talking about expiring account balances, but I think that's for amounts redeemed from rewards?


It says in the message that it expires 90 days after redemption.

Add me to this Phoenix Wright purchase list as well. Had some Bing money to spend and it was on sale a few months back, so why not.

Dragon Ball Super Season 1 is a perk on the Gamepass app but I already have it. Free to a good home as long as you find the missing character.

I'm sick of resident evil remakes. Give me dino crisis!

Agreed. If they wanna change up the genre, I'm ok with Powerstone.

About 75% done with Quantum Break and it's really good, it's a shame this game didn't perform better. The storytelling is a tad disjointed, since there are characters in the TV portion which have minimal or no presence in the game itself, and sometimes I feel like I'm missing something.

Still great, though, and even if it's by default, one of the best exclusives on the platform.


I had so much trouble with the end boss difficulty spike that I gave up and haven't gone back since.

I was too late, no 200 spins for me. Did get 32 free spins so yay?!?

I thought I didn't get it last night either. It's in your game messages as a gift. Make sure you check there.

So is there any issue claiming gwg for another county say Japan? Cuz they got a gwg we don't got.

Also those kingdom heart game prices are insane but glad we got the game.

No issues. It's not the Oman wars of the 360 days. RIP
