PSA: Deal of the Week Does Count Towards 800 MSP October Rebate

Remember the October rebate offer that's been running throughout this month? Remember how everyone thought that Deal of the Week purchases didn't count towards your 2400 Microsoft Point total to earn the 800 Points back? Well, it turns out that it was complete baloney.
It has come to our attention that Deal of the Week purchases do count towards your cumulative 2400 MSP total, which means you can spend your points on pretty much anything you want and get your 800 Microsoft Point rebate back as a thank-you.
Thanks to some marvellous inquisitive work [thanks, gerwinko], the Xbox Social Media Editor for Europe tweeted the following, "Hello. There was a bit of confusion over that - final word is that DOTW does count towards the 2400 points for the October offer."
Xbox Support has subsequently backed that up by tweeting that, "We have checked on this, and DOTW purchases will count."
So, there you go. You can take that as official then. It's just annoying that there's now only five days left to spend our 2400 Microsoft Points. Should be simple enough... Take a look at this week's content to see if there's anything you fancy.
