Xbox Live Birthday month!! omg

So I get this e-mail today:



Hi Xenolith666,

Happy Birthday Month!

Congratulations! This month you'll be another year wiser. But what's a birthday without a sweet surprise? Try this: Enjoy 20 Microsoft Points as our gift to you. Use it toward anything you wish in the Xbox LIVE Marketplace. Your birthday Microsoft Points will be automatically deposited into your Xbox LIVE account by the 15th of the month.

It's just one of the fun extras you get for reaching CONTENDER, CHAMPION or LEGEND status on MyAchievements from Xbox LIVE Rewards. Now, take a deep breath and blow out those candles!

Hoping your birthday wishes come true,

Xbox LIVE Rewards Squad

Seriously? 20 points? does that even equate to a unit of money that exists? wtf am I going to buy with that? If it was 400msp I could understand it.. that's $5.. this will not kill Microsoft and I can actually get an arcade game or DLC with it.. 20msp is for me to poop on. i'm sure others have seen this.. but first time for me and wow that's just disappointing..

I'm quoting dethklok here: open up your deathday present it's a box of fucking nothing. rsvp please

It's just a small gesture, sure it's not going to get you anything but it's the thought that counts, so stop being ungrateful. They don't have to dish it out to thousands of people per day.

I am usually one to always be grateful of whatever little is given to me, but 20 msp? Really? What is the point of that? They could of given out a free avatar prop like the "celebration" one, they have given those out for free before, but instead they give you 20 points that isn't enough to even buy one thing on the Xbox live marketplace haha. Your birthday is just as important as taking a survey haha.

It's about 2,000 kip in Laos. You can buy a beerlao, not just any beerlao, a 650ml big ass bottle of beerlao!


I'm jealous, my gf was in Laos a couple weeks ago and taunted me with pictures of her drinking this stuff, apparently it's pretty damn good!

Here? 25 cents. You can look at it. maybe let it sit in your pocket for a while until it falls out in the wash. Nice gesture but ... yah.

It does come off as ungrateful, but I can see why. Especiallyy when you take into account how much money your have given them. I would just take it and accept it. Just think, there may be a time when you go to buy something that you're 20msp short, and it will be there to put towards said purchase. Be as positive as you can about the situation. Its free, so might as well put a smile on your face about it.

Better than nothing, 20msp for each person's birthday, work it out really.

Am I the only one that thinks, I have say 380msp, that extra 20msp = 400msp

They should scrap the reward system, people are ungrateful.

I just saw this on my account... WTF 20 points.... fricking 25cents are you kidding me.. FU Micro$oft

"
Make the Most of your Birthday

We want to make sure you get rewarded! You must qualify for CONTENDER, CHAMPION or LEGEND status by the first of your birthday month to get your special Birthday Gift! Missed it? You can still qualify for the other Rewards as a CHAMPION or LEGEND every month. It's that easy"


OK I was at Legend Status.. i wounder what I would of got if I was at Contender or Champion?? LOL

"Thanks for Stopping By! Hello! We don't have a survey available this month, but you can head over to the GetYours page to see all the latest ways to earn."


Really... I was going to look on the bright side and say the birthday gift of 20 took me to 80 pending so I thought I would take my July survey to get up to the 100 and low and behold... no survey this month... bahahahahaha has got to make me laugh

20 MS Points is better than 0 MS Points. And let's face it, if they were giving out 100 MS Points for your birthday, you could make a lot of accounts and use each account to purchase some shitty avatar item.

Microsoft would rather you pay for that shit, not get it for free.

Yes, it equals twenty-five cents. Eighty points is a dollar.

Is it really though? You can find more money in the couch. Even if you were homeless, a quarter wouldn't change anything.

Xbox Rewards is pretty good actually, I think I've gotten around 4000 points back through that, the birthday bonus is just stupid though.

I know, I was just trying to point out that Microsoft is being generous enough for giving you 20 free MS points on your birthday month. All you have to do is be a rewards member with 3000 minimum and you get $0.25 once a year. Cool beans. Those monthly surveys are great too (don't know why they were stopped just this month).

But yeah, it's not like you're supposed to shell out $60 of your money on your birthday month, only to get 20 MSP back. That would suck.

If they were smart they would do something like offer a percent discount on a downloadable game of your choice in your birthday month, that would be cool and still make them some money in the process. But the reason they probably can't do things like that is that people would find ways to exploit the hell out of it.

Something is better than nothing, OP. I checked my e-mail too and saw I got 20 as well, but am I going to complain, no. That 20 makes what I will be getting on the 15th 300 since I just recently renewed my gold membership and done the surveys. It adds up over time, just because you get 20 now, doesn't mean you have to spend it right away. Even so, there are quite a few things you can get for 20 points, some gamer pics e.g. Hitman Blood Money, or an avatar item.

Other times of my years for being a gold member I've gotten surprise e-mails being given 20 points up to 80 and I never complained then, just saved them up or find something small to spend them on. I was grateful to get the extra 80, because it added to the other points I had at the time for a arcade game I had wanted. I'm sure your family, friends whatever will get you some gifts for your b-day, tho I doubt you deserve such big gifts. Try to appreciate the small things in life more often.

I don't think complaining about the 20 MSP that Microsoft gives us quite falls under the philosophy of appreciate the small things. It's a useless digital amount of currency that on it's own has literally no use. And it's distributed by a computer, not a person and it's not really given with kindness and sincerity in mind. It's designed to entice us to spend more money in the long run. It's not really a gift in the true sense of the word, not even a bad gift where we say "it's the thought that counts." It's not like stopping to smell the roses, which is a wonderful thing that everyone should be encouraged to do. It's essentially a mailing list that once a year sends you one of the most useless discounts you'll ever come across, or a coupon you receive in the mail fifty years too late that is laughable in the face of inflation. Buy a Lamborghini - Get a free keychain might actually be a better deal.

Just sayin'.

Well put and very true as well. I myself tho am not bothered by the small amount given and was surprised to see a thread about it. That would certainly be a better deal. I also liked your idea of being offered a deal on a arcade game of your choice, that itself would have been better.

Are they going to be getting rid of the points for Xbox One? I went to go buy Absolution yesterday because of the sale, and it just charged me $10. It was pretty great not using those terrible points.

They are getting rid of Microsoft Point entirely when the next dashboard update comes out in the fall. The Xbox 360 will no longer have points, and the Xbox One will never have points. All of the points that you have will be converted into real money which will expire in one year if you do not use it.

Use it toward anything you wish in the Xbox LIVE Marketplace. Your birthday Microsoft Points will be automatically deposited into your Xbox LIVE account by the 15th of the month.

It's just one of the fun extras you get for reaching CONTENDER, CHAMPION or LEGEND status on MyAchievements from Xbox LIVE Rewards. Now, take a deep breath and blow out those candles!

Hoping your birthday wishes come true,

Seriously? 20 points? does that even equate to a unit of money that exists? wtf am I going to buy with that? If it was 400msp I could understand it.. that's $5.. this will not kill Microsoft and I can actually get an arcade game or DLC with it.. 20msp is for me to poop on. i'm sure others have seen this.. but first time for me and wow that's just disappointing..

I'm quoting dethklok here: open up your deathday present it's a box of fucking nothing. rsvp please

I suppose you also slap mommy and daddy on Xmas day when you don't get what you want either?
