Microsoft has launched a new Xbox Live Rewards scheme that offers players discounts according to their Gamerscore.
There are three separate reward tiers. Those with a Gamerscore between 3,000 and 9,999 will be sent a “Special Gift” worth 15p. Those with a Gamerscore between 10,000 and 24,999 receive the gift and are entitled to a 1% rebate on all purchases from Xbox Live Marketplace every month. And last up, those with a Gamerscore in excess of 25,000 will earn a 2% rebate on all purchases every month, as well as the birthday gift.
To be eligible all you have to do is activate the Xbox LIVE Rewards scheme on your Xbox Live Gold account. All Marketplace purchases qualify towards the rebates, with the exception of Microsoft Points and Xbox Live memberships.
So there ya go, Xbox360Achievements actually earns you money (kinda). How many other video game websites do that, eh?
