Anyone else randomly get MS Points. I went to download a few things and when I looked at my balance I had 240 MSP. The thing is though I spent the last of my points over a week ago and have not gotten any points since. I have not played 1 VS 100 in a while either so it can't be that. Any ideas?

I believe they had a promotion going on that if you bought certain stuff, they would give so much microsoft points back. They got so many going on, that I forget which one it is.

If you bought Shadow Complex or Trials HD they would give a certain % back, or some other deal.

If you bought all 5 summer arcade titles, you would get half of your MSP you spent back. (Let's say it was 5000 MSP, you would get 2500 back). I'm fairly certain that was the deal.

Or maybe that has already happened, and it's some sort of Holiday Promotion/Deal/Advertisement/Whatever.

I am pretty sure the summer arcade thing was buy the 5 games they wanted you to buy and you get 800 MS pts.

There was a promo where all you did was download the gamer pic, and you had a chance to win 200 MSP

Nope we had no such thing here in Canada and besides I got got 240 not 200 MSP (although another 160 would of been nice since then I could download the BIG DLC for Trials)

Oh and all the promos you are talking about, I didn't enter them. And I haven't downloaded any movies either.

Anyone consider that someone got a hold of his account details, recovered his account, bought some microsoft points from his credit card, downloaded something, used the lisence transfer tool and then elite monkey recovered his account unknowing of the recent transaction.

But there isn't anything different about my account other than the new points.
No new games played or any new DLs (I have checked my DL history).

I just remembered that a few days ago I bought the christmas present prop for my avatar (before it was free). And I paid 240 MSP for it. I am wondering if MS gave me a refund because that. It is the only explanation I can think of.
