Just checked my email (linked to my XBL) got a theme email and a points email. Happy days

The theme downloaded fine, however when I enter the code for 400 free points it says "enter a valid code":x

I found this http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/957922-red-dead-redemption/55400831
and this..

seems it has happened to a few people!
#13
Yeah same here :(
#14
Got mine too.
Had this problem before though.
It´s usually when they haven´t activated the codes yet....
They´ll work eventually (usually after a day or 2 max)
Be patient. (yeah I know, they should just work. But hey, they´re FREE!)

Anyone wana sell there points?
#17
same problem here theme worked but points didnt, annoying lol
#18
The points can be redeemed (works just fine) on an US account.
Just did it myself.
Guess someone screwed up somewhere as MS points are always regionlocked.
#19
Theme code only lasted a day according to the smallprint on the email.

'The Theme Token that you won will expire on 30 June 2010.'

It arrived last night at 21:31 so I had maybe 2 and a half hours to claim it? :o

I believe you need to make a US account by entering US details upon sign up with a US email.


I recieved two emails from them yesterday, both with the SAME codes on, I redeemed it today for the theme and it worked fine, even though in the email it states that "The Theme Token that you won will expire on 30 June 2010", gotta admit, it's a pretty awful theme even if it is free.
Just want to know is how you guys recieved your 400 Microsoft Points or If you recieved one but not the other? As I've recieved 2 emails with the same codes on and that was for the theme, will I be recieving another email or have I just been unlucky?

i got 4 emails, first 2 telling me i've won the points and theme, codes included. the other 2 emails came a day later telling me that the points code will now work and that the theme code has no expiration date

Hi,
on the email i received for the theme it stated i was one of the first 85000 to download the trailer, on the email for the points it states the first 5000 so I guess not everyone gets both.
