In Topic: 15% off psn cards at Dollar General

31 January 2019 - 10:33 PM

I don't get why anyone even rags on Family Dollar.  They fill a gap that really small towns around mine don't have the room or need for a Wallyworld or don't have the infrastructure or populace for a full blown grocery store. The ones I've been to are clean and affordably priced, and have a passable selection on things, especially cleaning supplies.

The last Family Dollar topic it was a bunch of P*****'s worried about the area's that Family Dollar often is in. It wasn't enough for people to just say "the area is rough I'll pass", people went on an on about it. Some deals aren't for everyone. I wish they'd do deals like this on the Xbox cards.

For Wal-mart RE7 Gold edition is it really gonna $17 or is it perhaps a misprint? I don't want it to be mistaken for the standard.

In Topic: Microsoft Rewards Breakdown

17 July 2018 - 08:22 PM

I'm a bit of an Xbox n00b, so I have a few questions if anyone could please answer them.


1. Is there any real difference between the "Microsoft Gift Card" and "Xbox Gift Card" rewards?

2. Is the Xbox Live Gold reward any different than a sub that was paid for with money? I noticed the fine print reads "On Xbox 360, Games with Gold offer for paid Gold members only." Does that mean Games with Gold isn't included with this reward sub?

3. If your Gold sub expires, can you still access the games you got from Games with Gold?

1. Microsoft Gift card is if you're shopping at Microsoft.com or Store for laptops and Surface tablets. Xbox gift card is for as you'd guess Xbox One/360 related things like DLC, Games, avatar junk.  The terms are used interchangeably and is confusing.

2. Not sure about this one. The points you get from Gold rewards will be from purchases you make and just is deposited into your Microsoft points account. Yes you must have Xbox gold subscription to reap gold. 

3. from what I've read you do not keep the Xbox One free games, BUT you do get to keep 360 games which are almost always Backward compatible and downloadable on the Xbox one. By keep that of course means access to play them offline. As soon as you activate Gold you can play the free Xbox One games. If you prowl CAG enough for deals you pay like $40 bucks for a year of Gold or save lots of bing points and never pay it's a good deal to cash it in on a year of Gold. 4 games a month that are like $15 bucks a piece for 12 months is ok.


IMO most of the best GWG games have been 360 anyway - Dead Space, Sonic Racing, Army of Two for example and they're worth being able to play one a silver membership.
