Xbox Live Rewards

I just checked. I guess I have enough points that I could actually purchase that. But it would take most of my points. It seems like a bad deal. Just so that I don’t have to shuffle around games and can have more installed at the same time, I suppose? That seems worth something. But 182,000 more points plus what I already have in my wallet? Ouch.

Now that I’ve actually held a Elite Controller in my hand, maybe that would be worth that much though. Hmmm.

The nice thing about the auto-redeem is that the $10 cards are cheaper that way. My plan (though I have no idea if it will work, until I have enough points accumulated) is to get enough points (100k? More? dunno yet, I’ve only got about 20k now), and then re-enable auto-redeem and see if it gives me 10 or more $10 cards at the end of the month, or if it only does 1 at a time. Remember that cards purchased with points DO expire, so this way I’m hoping I get the cards at the cheaper price all at once and then I’ll cancel it again after I’ve purchased whatever I want with the cards.

Anyone know if you can gamify the auto-redeem discount that way?

I’m betting it only redeems one card worth of points, but I’m interested to find out if it works for you.

My bet is that you’d probably be able to try it 4 or 5 times before I ever have enough points to try it!

No, you can’t. It just redeems one $10 card at the beginning of the month, no matter how many points you have.

I cancelled because it caused me more stress knowing that the $10 would expire in 90 days and I would forget to buy something.

Bugger. Well, at least you can get one at the discount.

One minute bing quiz just won’t register with me today as being completed. So I guess I’m going to lose my streak again. Stupid Cheetah quiz. TRIGGER!

I’m having the same issue with the 1-minute quiz. Also, the Bing ios app still doesn’t register mobile searches and I have to use my android phone for that.

At least I’ll never forget that a group of male Cheetahs is called a Coalition.

Same here :)

Try again. Just completed for me.

Booyah. And I aced that test.

Who knew Cheetah was an arch-nemesis for Wonder Woman, not just some weird random thing that Kristen Wiig chose during Wish Week.

Us. We knew. Because we are so good at Cheetah quizzes.


I think my Xbox 144 week streak is going to be toast this week.

I earned two achievements today, but the weekly task still says I have 0/3 achievements. One was in Forza 7, one is Overcooked 2, neither an easy achievement. And neither of them counted.

I guess I still have more time today and most of tomorrow, but I doubt I can get 3 achievements.

Edit: And now I got a 3rd achievement too. An easy one this time. All of them pinged on notifications, none of them pinged on this achievement goal. Still 0/3. We’ll see tomorrow I guess.

Do you need to get all 3 in the same game? I’m pretty sure I’ve ran into that before.

Taiko no Tatsujin’ll have you covered if you didn’t play it already.

Rewards has been down all day for me, it let me earn a few points here and there, then nothing.

I just signed into Rewards on the Xbox and it has given me credit for all 3 of yesterday’s achievements. Yay! 145 week streak now.

Congrats! The app was down for me when I tried to get in a few hours ago.
