Win a grand prize, including 10,000 Microsoft Points, with Xbox LIVE Rewards

WP Central

Are you a member of the Xbox Rewards program? No? Then you could be missing out on promotions such as this, which includes 10,000 Microsoft Points. Yes - you read correctly, 10,000 Microsoft Points. But that's not all. The grand prize includes a limited edition Xbox 360 & Kinect Star Wars bundle, Xbox 360 Media Remote, 12-month Xbox LIVE Gold Membership, Kinect Sports: Season 2, Dance Central 2 and Mass Effect 3. 

How does one get the chance to win such a prize, worth over £550? As mentioned above, you need to be enlisted on the Xbox Rewards program. Should you not have an account, it's pretty easy to set up with your Live ID. After your account has been verified, etc. all that's left for you to do is use your Gold Xbox LIVE Membership as you normally would. Purchase points, answer surveys, renew your membership, use services on your Xbox console (Sky, etc.), to name but a few.

You'll then be with a chance of winning some great prizes, such as the above promotion bundle. Should you require more information on the Xbox Rewards program, be sure to check out the FAQ section of the website (as well as the rewards table), which features a handy video walkthrough.

It's certainly interesting for Microsoft to offer such a large volume of points in the entertainment bundle as we've heard a number of rumours that point to the death of Microsoft Points as we know it in the future, which will be positive news for many gamers. How Microsoft will carry out the transition from what would most probably be points to actual local currency is yet to be seen. That aside, 10,000 points, an Xbox 360 Console and 12 months worth of Gold membership is an intriguing prize alone.

We're Sorry.
Unfortunately, you can't join Xbox LIVE Rewards right now. It's strictly because the program is not available in your country. Check back often as new countries are being added to the program.
Spain here

Yup, same here in Ireland. Seems kinda stupid, there doesn't seem to be any reason for this restriction other than just because they can.

I like ms points and many are like me, I wish the media stopped voicing just the ones with poor math skills.

I wish Xbox live was free

Shantek says:

If it was free, then it would be just like the crappy PS network

There is Xbox Live Free.  It does most of the things that Xbox Live Gold has.  Anyway, for those out there, the rewards program is cool.  I got 400 Microsoft points ($5) just for renewing (a bonus for renewing in March; normally it's 200 points).  And the 12-month card cost me $40 but came with 5 XBLA titles originally worth $60 (now worth $55 at current marketplace prices).  Check out the savings sites and you'll find lots of great deals out there for Xbox Live Gold.
