Yeah, but a kind mod has moved it. Still, ironically now it's in the freebies section not many people will see it as only the deals section gets much attention.
can you make numerous accounts stay on silver and join get the Microsoft points use them for stuff saved to hard drive and use on main account?
Just spoke to Microsoft they know nothing of this promotion. So keep an eye on your points

what do you mean? the rewards program is official
I went on the rewards site and yeah nothing on there about this
As stated in email OP received

"Offer good only for named recipients of this email."

Looks like it may only be account specific
I got the e-mail on my second account last night, but not my third (both are silver accounts). Unfortunately it's only a freebie if you get the e-mail, else there's no way to get it.

Should this be expired? Seeing as you can't actually do anything to get the e-mail?
Been with xbox from day one and all ive got so far is a month free and some bad arcade games that had noone online.
Hmmm...do you have to follow a link from the email? Or is it just sign up anyhow you can? I signed up 2 days ago..wander if there's any way to wrangle it...?
Why did i have to put my real d.o.b in at the time...only 17 and you have to be 18 to participate !
I cant see them giving out 800 points just to join this? Sounds a bit fishy...
Received e-mail but only offers 400 points!

It should ask after clicking email then clicking join xbox live reward ask you to sign in to windows live with the email address and password of your xbox account[Gamertag] to tie them together so it knows when you buy qualifying rebate products / participate in offers etc to reward the account

Bit ironic for a reward system, as the gold accounts don't get anything! lol
But hot for those who can get it, I just hope this rewards system is good. I'm ready to give up on my xbox with its constant money grabbing.
God I hate you Microsoft, I'm defo jumping ship next generation! All you've given me is Mass Effect 1.
Yeah I got this email (gold member), never had any reason to join rewards until now.

I got an email to my second account. Now I can buy a game and then use it on my main account.

How dare microsoft incentivise people to sign up for their service!

They do have promotions for people with accounts already. I got double points in jan when I renewed my gold subscription and got a total of 400 points for that. I would define that as a reward for being a gold member.
"Excellent Choice! You're In.

We're setting up your Xbox LIVE Rewards account, and it will be ready anytime within the next 36 hours. So check back soon and often!"

So, how do i get the 800 points? will they email it to me? :\

Thanks

Ok now they are just taking the P! Time to jtag/RGH soon!
got an email on my 2nd account!
Aww, read the comments.. and yep got it in one of my emails going through old accounts now looking for them (: Very good offer tbh, for those who play fifa UT u can use for free packs then trade to ur main account, or those who just want a new game ect ect
I registered for it on the 25th feb after seeing it posted up on here then read the small print (Named email recipients only
However I recieved the "get some love" email earlier this evening so it turns out I will be a named recipient :)))
In the email it says you can register anytime from the 17th Feb for this offer and the points will be added on the 15th of the following month. Worth keeping an eye on the email coming through as it seems to be happening over a few days!

It gets automatically transferred to your xbox live account some point in the middle of next month. If you read all the details on the offer and on the rewards account it tells you this. It also says the exact date.
My 800 points were credited today.

Pfft, Microsoft at their best! Been a member for years, new members always get the better of us. Where's our 800msp? Oh I got to earn them by buying content, renewing my live, or filling questionnaires.

Yes but it's like giving back to you. Personally I think it's a great Idea because you basically get 20 free M$ Points every month when you fill out the survey. So far I've earned 680 MS Points in total from renewing and various other tasks. It's about time they allowed us to exchange our hard earned gamerscore too

Think about it though, your paying for a decent service. I would rather pay for a decent service than have a crappy PS3 with crappy PSN.
