One Week Left in the “Play To Earn” program

Only one week to get in on the hot arcade action this month with Play To Earn from Xbox Live Rewards.  How close are you to completing all three challenges?  To help you out, we’ve got some great games on-sale in our  Deal of the Week promotion. Head over to Xbox.com to get started.

    well, I already fulfilled my punchcard, just waiting for my 800MS and mainly my VIP reward, please MS don’t dissapoint me!!

  • Thânia Santos

    When will more countries have access to Rewards???? (and access to many other things too)
    almost all countries around mine have access to it!
    It is so depressing to so often feel like a second rate gold member…
    same price as elsewhere, only 30% of the service…

    • MaidenLOKO

      Hi, I’m from Brazil and didn’t have many trouble with rewards, some of them in fact don’t work here (like tomb raider’s rewards), but I reedemed almost 1000 MS till now. But y are allright, MS should expand the services around the world, some of them, in fact are not MS’s fault (like some entertaiment apps limited to US). The rewards program is one of them they should make available for every gold user. I don’t know if it work for me cause I have an US account, but the fact is we don’t even have a web page in portuguese regarding xbox rewards.

    Larry, I have a problem with the Xbox Live Rewards page. I have a two year XBL contract and yet the page always says “Upgrade to Gold”… Seems like it just take into account regular subscriptions but not contracts… :/

    • MaidenLOKO

      I had this problem after I renewed my subscription, once the site takes some time to upgrade your infos, however, don’t know if it is your case!

    • The Dukenator

      Ask @XboxLIVErewards on Twitter about this.

    just wondering, do you know if i wait till the 30th to take advantage of the weekly sale will i still get credit towards my april punch cards? knowing it takes 3-5 days to post the transaction on xbox live rewards.

    • https://live.xbox.com/MyXbox/Profile?gamertag=DarkGin87 Lee Rayson (DarkGin87)

      Yes because you made the transactions on the 30th

    Portugal not included , WHY?

  • http://twitter.com/jasonpeek00 Jason Peek

    It doesn’t work. I’ve met all the requirements but it doesn’t show.

    • http://twitter.com/lightsup55 Timothy Leucht

      The fine print towards the bottom of the page reads:

      “It can take 3 – 5 days for a Punchcard activity to show as complete. All
      completed Punchcards are fulfilled at the end of the month.”

  • m1nh0ca

    I read the ToS a while ago… and don’t remember about this point.
    Could you, please, show us?

    It makes no sense. If I move to another country, will I be obligated to change region? Even the Support suggests us to create an account in another region if we don’t have content in ours. If we are using another account honestly, buying points, games and paying for the Gold subscription, there’s no reason to be banned.

    Ban occurs for modifying the console or cheating somehow (boosting Gamerscore, unlocking Avatar awards, trying to use social engeneering, and so on).

  • m1nh0ca

    I don’t think so.

    Already completed ages ago =D

    It won´t happen, but what would you care? Your comment feels almost racist… just saying.

    I completed the challenges last week. Got some great games. I can’t wait until May when I can get even more.

    Do add-ons for arcade games, like tables for PBFX2, count towards the last 800-800-800-800 one?

    FINALLY. Xbox Live Rewards is returning to its Roots! About damn time.

    I repeat, What would you care? Race has all to do with nationality. You sound like you wish they ban him just because He is getting things, so I repeat, why is that anger? what would you even care? Live your life and let the others live their own, stupid selfish.
