Xbox Live Rewards Returns, Offers New Ways to Earn
Written Saturday, August 31, 2013 By Richard WalkerView author's profile
Having retired the Microsoft Points system on Xbox Live, today sees the relaunch of the Xbox Live Rewards programme a whole day earlier than anticipated
Rather than earning Microsoft Points straight up, the new Xbox Live Rewards system adopts a credit currency. Amassing credits counts towards cash rebates, with 5000 credits translating to $5/£3.35 to spend on whatever you like on the newly rebranded Xbox Live Marketplace, which is now known as the 'Xbox Games Store'.
As ever, renemwing Gold membership, purchasing and playing games from the store, recommending friends and completing surveys will all count towards earning credits that in turn will be credited to your account as cash. If you still have burning questions about the new Xbox Live Rewards programme, you'll find answers in this handy FAQ.
