Yeah, the other day when I was surfing through the marketplace I only had 30 microsoft points avaliable. I just noticed now that I for some reason have 430......

Was there something that I was not aware of going on that gave me free microsoft points?

And if I win a prize in a contest, do they actually send you an email.....because that might be where it came from....

I doubt it'll be the RDR contest as it ends in 6 days ;)

Red Dead Redemption Video contest.


Is it not a bit short of a time for that stuff?
Plus even though the tokens are long gone, I think the thing is still technically open.

Maybe it's something from a bit further back?

Was it the first 5000 or is it 5000 random people who did it?

If this is the case about the RDR download trailer entry, then I didn't win because I haven't got any extra points. I downloaded mine at 12:03am on the 26th April.

Well I've also gained 400 Points and only possible reason could be the Red Dead Video I mean I've done nothing else to gain those points but I have no email or anything just appeared.

It's random. Search the home page, there's an article posted with the contest information.

Just checked the T&C for the Red Dead stuff.

The Xbox tokens will be sent to the corresponding LIVE ID email account, within 4-6 weeks after the end of the promotion period. [May 10th 2010, 11:59 PM GMT]

Couldn't see anything about whether they said it was random or the first 5000 though. (Only thing near official I've seen on that is Acey Bongos).


EDIT: Forgot to include the link.
