    Haha, yeah I was lucky and managed to save enough points at the end of last year to get a new design lab controller
    You can do that? shock
    How?
    How many points was that?
    Yep! Redeem points for a MS or Xbox gift card, they both get desposited in your MS account all the same. It took 69K points, got it with the $10 black Friday discount but added some gunmetal accents so it ended up being only a couple dollars less than a base controller. Fortunately my wife is willing to give me her points if I'm ever a bit short on a sale, so she did help me out with 10K of those.

    I'm considering saving up all of my points from here on out and just buying an Xbox Series X a few years down the line with them. All the quests and bonus points add up pretty fast. Although I feel the offers and "prizes" were better when it was Xbox Rewards and Bing Rewards was a separate thing.
    If you have to ask, you're streets behind.

    Argh I wish they would stop refusing to put the dragon ball fighter z fighter pass 2 on sale when it’s been reduced multiple times on other platforms

    Another Ubisoft sale. Another week of nothing I want that I don't already have. Got overcooked awhile ago and saw it had paid DLC so quit playing til I bought it. Just looked and see it doesn't even have achievements. Glad I didn't waste the $1.49

    How did she give you points? Since those are tied to the account you can't do anything but redeem them. If you redeem them for Xbox credit you can't transfer that to another account either.

    You can gift a certain amount of points each month to a family member. My wife has donated a few thousand to me here and there...

    Really? I did not know that. Where is that option? I don't see it in the redeem section.

    On the Rewards page, go to the Community tab. Then you can "give points".

    Yup, up to 5k a month. They do have to be added as a family member, but super easy.

    Really? A season pass without all the DLC, gotta love it. roll
    Surf n' Turf is the first DLC, and it came out before they decided to go with a season pass. If it was included, anyone who bought the it would have gotten the short end of the stick.

    Go buy Ethan Carter and then a few weeks later or next month it comes to Game Pass/Gold knowing my luck. Games seem to do this to me. facepalm

    If I don't get it now, it may not go on sale for a while and won't be on Gold/Game Pass.

    My god, Overcooked 2 season pass. I've been waiting for 3000 years and was just about to buy it on Saturday.

    I'll take it!
    I bought it a week or so ago due to the fact I'd never seen it on sale! At least it isn't a huge discount, but regardless there is a discount! haha.
  • Posted on 07 January 20 at 09:29
    Ethan Carter, bloody hell forgot that launched! Just pressed buy, I love walking sims and games that respect my time. That'll be a nice chilled Saturday morning completion :)
