    how about instead of marking achievements u guys make your customer support is pityful that people can have issues with the reward scheme and nobody has answers. If there is no answer, just dont reply.
    If u neglect the hands that feed u, then guess what!! ..they feed somebody else


  • Richard Takiar

    I bought my Xbox One from Amazon right on November 11, 2014, will I get the goodies?

    • Ganon255

      same here, eligible but never received the email


  • JJ

    Haha I didn’t get my email😦


  • Justen Stoks

    Missed chance for me… To bad Microsoft didn’t announce this a while ago.
    Been a D1 owner since, well… day one.


  • Christopher Walsh

    Awesome! I was in before Day One and it’s been a great ride all year with all the updates.


  • HazyInfidel

    can’t believe I haven’t had a reward because I don’t get marketing e-mails (only the reward e-mails). I feel gutted! Love the console and loved the 360.😦


  • anthonyd46

    Were the physical prizes even awarded? Every forum I have checked seems to be only digital prizes and none of the physical ones. Even the digital ones it seems to only be a few of them warframe, dance central, halo video, dbz video, limbo, battlefield 4 dlc. No 12 month codes etc.


  • Kevin Flanigan

    Has anyone else had an issue with not receiving an email yet?


  • Thomas Palmer

    So.. I am a day one owner. Heck, day one on all three Xbox consoles and an an original Xbox Live beta tester. I did not receive a Limbo message. Oh, and thanks for the “poster” that I have to pay money to actually get (it costs money to print you know). Yea, I feel sooo “appreciated”.


  • GoldbergFan

    Two days later…. Still Haven’t got my email and I meet all the requirements. #BS


  • darkandlong

    Got crappy stuff via email. Got Limbo and Sunset Overdrive items via Xbox Live message. So stop freaking out and check your messages!

    Better than a kick in the rear.


  • Dusten Hay

    I have not received any email yet and i purchased my xbox one day one and put 10+ hours like they said.


  • aic007

    so 12 years of live, one xbox, 3 360’s and a day one xbox one with a combined 200+ games across all three consoles and no email regarding themes or gamer pics. Thanks, though I do appreciate all the emails from the microsoft store.


  • Darklurkr23
