    Would be nice to clearly see what was added to the list in the update. Now, I have to parse through again.

    Exactly my thoughts

    Numerous games listed that aren't discounted... how can it be part of a summer spotlight sale, if it's not discounted?

    Because it's not a sale. It's a promotion to highlight new games. Someone at TA probably got confused with all the other sales going on.

    Except this is completely gone from my dashboard. It hasn't been there for about a week now, it's as if they gave up on it. Sucks for developers that added their games last.

    Yeah, I’ve spent well over $100 and it doesn’t update the app. 5000 points is a decent amount to not be credited.
    I've also spent over $150 and not had the credit. I contacted MS Support and apparently they are looking into it? I agree as an Ultimate Subscriber this is disappointing as this would be double for me...

    I can confirm that family mysteries does not count. I've been back and forward with support and despite me included pics of the game was still refused credit. I did however get a list if the games that will count from them. I can share if anyon3 interested
    Please do. This is driving me crazy. There's games on the Xbox "that count" but aren't on the website and vice versa. My purchase of Mechanicus didn't count towards the $50 spent but did towards the 5,000 points reward... somehow.

    A game so mediocre, it shut the dev down.
    That's so laughably wrong and ignorant I don't even know where to start.

    This came from Xbox support and is all the games included in promotion. I've only managed to have one counted, Rainswept.
    How appropriate you fight like a cow.

    I've spent the €45 needed so hopefully it will deposit those juicy points soon.

    Thanks for the link, hadn't seen that page. Xbox support said something about having to buy it from the website but provided no links so maybe this will work.
    Looking to boost any MP achievements I don't have for any game I own.

    Bit late but does anyone know if Films count towards getting the punchcard and gift card?
  • Posted on 30 August 20 at 03:07, Edited on 05 September 20 at 16:00 by Mike Marcelais
    I bought Swim Out to finish off my punch card (I was $1 short) and it did not count. I had to buy Hero and Garden.

    So for me, Merchant of the Skies, Nicole, Liege Dragon, and a Hero and a Garden counted for me, while Swim Out and Family Mysteries did not count.

    Anyone got the gift money yet??

    I think the fine print said you get your gift card on Sept 15th.

    I haven't had mine yet, anyone else missing theirs?

    Edit: I have contacted MS Rewards team and they closed my ticket without a response.
    How now, ground cow?

    I spent £50 and got the reward points but not the gift card. Its past the deadline date too, so anyone in the same boat? I took a screenshot of completed punchcard but I'm unable to post a query to MS Rewards support; every time I fill it in and press send I just get 'something went wrong'... Fingers crossed we all get what we paid for!

    Yeah, was in contact with Xbox Rewards and they pretty much denied all mention of the gift card, passed me on to Xbox Support who have so far ignored me, but they wont have a clue anyway. Looks like we've been duped in honesty.

    I have not received my gift card yet either. I verified that I met all the requirements-I also had to buy extra just to meet the requirements. I hope everyone hears something soon

    I got a message from Microsoft, which included a code for $10 earlier this week.
