    So I've clicked on the link to sign up but not received my email yet. If I buy gold sub from Amazon, will I automatically get rewarded 200 points as soon as I sign in or do I need to wait for the email and do something before buying from amazon?

    I get 40 a year, every year, for not having a gold account. Can they match that?

    How much a year on MMO subs then?

    So I get the e-mail. I fill in the survey and it doesn't say that I've points pending.

    The survey was only 5 questions but a waste of my time if I'm not going to get anything from it. :/

    EDIT: Never mind, it can take 36-96 hours to appear as pending. They only get deposited in chunks of 100 too.

    I'm hoping it'll just take time for them to register. I got my signing up mail today, but had done the survey yesterday although it knows I've done the survey if i log back in. Think it's probably really busy just now. Lots of folk signing up.

    Edited for smart phone typing fail.

    Signed up for this but got a reply saying it's not available in Ireland :(

    No 20msp for you. I really don't think its worth it. For 12 months surveying you get the point equivalent of a bag of crisps and a chocolate bar.

    A waste of your time! It took you literally a minute to select the answers. That's enough out of you.
    I do wish I could sign up for this here. It's dumb they only get deposited in 100s but points are points! What can I say, I'm poor.

    For 20 MSP yes, it is a waste of time.

    I really wouldnt be surprised if you only get the reward by buying via the Microsoft route. I need to find out this too, as mines up in a week...

    Do we know yet if they're awarding any points retroactively? I suspect not.

    The site FAQs say they aren't. Not suprising I guess.

    I signed up to this reward thingy. Basically, they can stick this up their ring piece. It is the most tight reward scheme I've ever seen.

    They don't even seem to be rewarding them after you sign up either, even waiting their 96 hours. So all in all it's a little bit of a limp start.

    I've not been rewarded my 20 (!!) points for the survey yet either, they're not even pending.

    @SteJosh, No luck here either...just keep getting a picture of a toaster or something.

    We'll see who's laughing when, four surveys down the road, I can afford those sweet avatar shades!!
  • Deleted user 6 December 2010 18:47:20
    ... and I read it's one survey per month at 20 points per pop. That's 12 * 20 = 240 points for a year. I feel really rewarded Microsoft, God thanks, you're the best.

    If they bother giving you those points, of course. Which it seems for many they won't, and don't let you retake the survey either.

    Even if it's just 20 pts, it's still free! I don't get people always bitching about stuff even when it's free. Haven't you ever been in a situation where you have 780 pts and need to buy DLC for 800 pts? The only option there is to buy 500 pts at least, you'd be happy with 20 shitty free points then!

    The frickin site don't work properly. I tried to re-gift my loosing entry, and the facebook app don't work, but I did still get the email saying I'd been entered in the daily comp to win all that faff.
    The survey was bloody short, and I don't get my points till I got 100 of them? Fuck off.
    What a load of shite.
    Plus, I signed up for my Live to renew next month when they did that 12 months for 24 deal a while back. Guess what - this don't count, even though I aint paid for it yet, it was 'purchased' a month or so ago and don't count.
    Fuckin swindlers.

    A lot of it seems to based on doing something for the first time, which is shit. Why not reward the people who are constantly buying games, downloading trailers, checking out indie stuff, using Gold content, etc? In short - FUUUUUUUUUUU :)

    I agree with this, I always sort of feel like it could be worse, we could get NO free points. I wish there was a gifting option so everyone could pass their 20 points along this way.
