    Thanks for the article. toast

    I completed all of them besides the Play Ball ones. Not interested in starting Golf Club 2 or Tecmo Bowl.

    This happened to me as well. I'm glad, since I didn't want to make the effort to do it properly.

    None of mine tracked for SOT, 4 achievements on id games or something new quest. I'll have to email support I guess. This happened before with a quest that was worth a few k points...

    It's a cool idea. I'm happy with the few points I earn from it. Better than nothing!

    From what I can see with the app on the Xbox One there's nothing like that being offered, the app barely works at all and on the rare times it does it tends to not even register any points that are earned.

    Did you know that you can boost your Microsoft Rewards points via your Xbox Game Pass games?

    ??? No?!?!
    Cause like other stuff, it isn't still available in my country... I really wanted to try this reward stuff.

    I finished Episode 1 of A New Frontier, and I haven't gotten credit for the quest (yet).

    I am in the US and the Play ID@Xbox to earn points quest is available to me as is the Play Ball quest. I have earned credit towards both of them. I also completed the Xbox Game Pass Mobile App quest and Complete Operation : Spymaster quest. The Spymaster quest requires 100 Bing searches, 3 daily log ins on the app ( I used the website ) and completing 3 series - this means a quiz, poll and something else. You just have to do those items for 3 days, and you earn points for doing them. This Quest is worth 1500 points and a free month of Game Pass.

    yea too bad i played just cause 4 for 12.5 hours and didnt unlock a single ach that i was supposed to or at all despite meeting several requirements along the way ... immediately uninstalled ... so many broken games these days, and this junk is in games pass and a challenge for rewards too, such a joke. shame as i liked the last 2 games (never played the first) for what they were even tho 3 ran like complete crap even after patches so i guess i shouldnt have been surprised 4 had glitched achs out the wazoo :/

    This is great news! Unless....
    ......You attempt the program for 3 months, do everything legit, go to redeem your first points, it doesnt work, try 3 times, contact support, then they tell you they will look into the issue, ask a week later, to then get an aito reply saying you are banned from the program.
    You continue to get emails about the program, account still works, yet each time ask, told that you are banned and wont give reason....
    Great program. Not frustrating at all.

    Makes a person think twice if they should continue to sell theyre products.

    I did the Operation Spymaster and never received any free month of Game Pass offer. My wife did it that same one and instantly had the offer for the free month of Game Pass. I go on the Rewards app every day and I don't see these offers listed here. I'm not so sure about the Rewards, seems very buggy for me. I still do it for the points, but many of the rewards don't show for me.

    I know the Spymaster "Free month of game pass" shows up as a tile you have to redeem for zero points, didn't see it at first until I went in there on MS Rewards, if you haven't checked already.

    I haven't been able to complete the Play ball one since Tecmo Bowl Throwback is showing as 0/0 achievements for me so the ones I unlocked don't count.

    I probably wouldn’t start any quests unless they’re super easy to complete. Backlog is too long.

    I checked the Rewards app the other day randomly, had enough points to get four $5 cards. Got the Castlevania set free, pretty much.
