Xbox Live Rewards program is now live in the US and UK

50 second read

Microsoft has announced this morning that it’s Xbox Live Rewards program is finally going live, but unfortunately only in the US and UK. It appears the rest of us aren’t quite ready for the awesome that is Xbox Live Rewards.

So what is the program exactly?

Well it’s a simple loyalty program really, the more you spend on Xbox Live the more free Microsoft points you get.

So for example if you renew you Xbox Live subscription you will get between 10 and 400 points and if you take a survey you will get 20 points, and if you… no wait those are the only two options.

Points for renewing and points for taking a survey. Not that it’s bad to get something for free  but I did expect a little more originality from them.

Here’s the full breakdown of what you can earn.

    I am underwhelmed. But I guess at least it’s a little something in return for the price increase. :dizzy:

    it would be nice if you got at least 100 points for every 10k of achievements…

    Free points for not doing much? That’s ok with me.

    Sad the SA accounts are being screwed over… again / still.

    I think points in return for achievement score is something that would really make this awesome, it would reward idiotically dedicated gamers at least

    I couldnt agree more, It would make achievement whoring a little easier to explain……
