Introducing the Xbox LIVE Rewards program

 

It’s a brand new way for Xbox LIVE members* to earn Microsoft points for doing things they already do on Xbox LIVE. Sign up and start earning Microsoft Points by watching movies and sports, playing games and more.  Plus, when you sign-up for Xbox LIVE Gold, or renew your membership you’ll earn even more. Sound good? We’re officially kicking off the program later today, but if you want to get in early hit the link below.

Get more details and join for free at Rewards.xbox.com

 

*This program is currently available in the US and UK only

    And what about getting rewards for being a Gold Veteran? I’m 8+ years now, we must be getting gifts for that. $60.00 x 8 years = $480 plus tax…

    Why is Redmond ALWAYS kicking their northern neighbors? What possible reason does xbox have for launching this video on the Canadian dashboard, then telling us we can’t join? Some kind of answer would be nice. Sorry you get to be the fall guy again Larry but really? Not in Canada? Ps3 is starting to look pretty attractive and I only have a month left on my live account.. Guess we’ll see what Christmas brings.

    Major, can you please tell us why the rewards program is only available for U.S. and U.K. XBL members? Is it due to legal reasons? or is it something else? I think if we knew the reason every other customer will not recieve these rewards maybe we might undertand (eg. legal reasons which are still being worked out and that we will all get it soon) and our anger will subside but the fact that we are simply told U.S. and U.K. residents will be getting a reward for being good customers while every other XBL customer won’t comes across as a little disrespectful.

    SO without an explanation i can only assume that Microsoft are working out the legal issues and that we all will get it soon. So untill then hold onto your Microsoft Points and hold out from buying any new Microsoft Points untill the Reward program is rolled out into your particular country.

    Wow, didn’t see that coming. While I think it is ridiculous to expect being rewarded for having purchased content/ Gold in the past, I was a bit disappointed to see that upgrading to the family plan scored 400 pts, as I did it the first day. Logged on my Reward page to enter the daily contest today, and “pending” is 400 MSPs for upgrading to Family Gold. THANK YOU!
    Oh, and they have said in the past that the “tenure” was going to be rewarded in some way, so hopefully that will roll out at some point…be patient, as it’s an evolving process!!!

    I hope they’ll expand it to the rest of us, Canada as well as EU and Oceania as well.
    We here in EU are quite a market for you MS, and we like to be remembered too since we pay full price and get nothing! extra, no games/rewards/series/subtitled movies, nothing😥

    A ‘reward’ program from MS and people are complaining because it’s lacking… you actually expected MS to reward you? It’s Microsoft, people. They care little of rewarding you and only care about taking your money. It’s all just another scam to get more people to spend money. They aren’t going to reward you for anything else, only for giving them money. And as some people have seen, the rewards really suck. Microsoft is lucky that someone else purchased my 1 yr renewal as I refuse to give this company any more of my money. Sony is MUCH more rewarding, they have FREE online gaming, where MS want’s to charge you 10 bucks for a bunch of extra junk that you’ll never use. Why don’t more people read the fine print on this junk and realize you are just getting ripped off. I could write something in HUGE letters saying “Free Rewards!” and all that junk all day. Why would you sign up for it without knowing the details of the program? You could be signing over ownership of your home or something retarded. You people are too quick to jump to something that someone want’s you to believe is good.

    I took the survey nearly a week ago and it still shows my pending points as “0”. I would think that the 20 points would show as pending by now.
