Ms Gives Away Free Points 2010-06-28 20:58:24 Reply

I got an e-mail from Xbox Live telling me I could redeem a code they gave me for 400 MSP. I thought it was pretty cool of them, considering they're usually greedy whenever it comes to their Marketplace. Not that 400 points alone can really net you any games, but hey, free is free.

I'm wondering if anyone else received this e-mail, or if they just send it to random people over time.

Lucky, all I get from Microsoft in my inbox is the "You owe us more money to play our game" message every three months. :c

I didn't get an email about this. Such a thing makes me sad, because that's pretty awesome of them.

I just checked my email in the hope of some free MS goodies, but sadly there was nothing there.

Out of curiosity, are all you folk with free points American? It might be exclusive to America.

Alright. Well, on second thought, this might be the Red Dead Redemption offer. If you watched the multiplayer trailer after a certain date, you were entered into a prize draw for 400 free MS points. I recall them saying the points would be given in 5-6 weeks, which is about now.

It was a prize draw, not an offer. Assuming this is where the points have came from.

I did not watch the RDR trailer.

Also, just checked the footnotes of the email:

"Open only to legal residents, age 17 and older, of the 50 United States (includes Washington, D.C.)."

So I guess it's American-only AND age restricted.

Damn, and this all went down on my 16th birthday. All I got was an add reminding me to play more LIVE and spend more money in the MarketPlace.
EA sent me a 25% discount coupon. I don't plan on using it, PM me if you want it.
