    Xbox/Microsoft game sale & Microsoft rewards 2nd Jul 17 at 8:40 PM
    As title suggests, they have a sale on at present and quite a few titles look like good prices (as cheap/cheaper than you'll get them elsewhere). Which is unusual as their pricing is usually a bloody rip off compared to other retailers.

    Sale ends 10th July I believe.


    Also, they have started microsoft rewards in the UK now (not to be confused with xbox rewards). And unlike xbox rewards, it actually seems you can get decent rewards for not much effort.

    ie you should get around 60k "points" a year with around 50 clicks a day. 12 months live costs 28k points. Can also spend it on xbox store credit, windows store credit, skype credit, xbox game pass, groove music etc

    Thanks for that re the rewards, Ive seen the sale advertised on hukd, bought a Forza add on, might check out the rest of the sale.

    Regarding the rewards its much easier to do them on a PC than a tablet.

    Yeah you need to do both for microsoft rewards afaik - you get 90 points per day for using bing on a computer and 60 points per day for using bing via mobile (3 points per search unless you're using edge, in which case its 6).

    Can't remember all the deals but witcher 3 (game of year edition) is only £17.50 (was one of the games I was thinking about getting anyway so bonus for me!). Also managed to pick up dishonored 2 from tesco for £10.

    Its been running in the US for a while. Friends of mine told me about it ages ago but it wasn't available in the UK yet. US one offers more rewards than ours (think they can earn up to 250-300 points a day using bing) but I'm hoping that might change and ours will come in line with theirs. You also get 1 point per £1 spent in the online store - which seems pretty pathetic when you consider how many points you get on a daily basis.


    Oh, also.....they will periodically send you emails which will give you bonus points!
