    Any hidden gems in this list? Also I'm still waiting on plague inc to be on sale again.
    I think it's still on Game Pass
    Do you mean Plague Tale, because Inc has never been on pass as far as I know.
    Yes, my mistake. I read your comment really quick lol.

    I'm not sure how to quote properly, but I never recieved the giftcard from the Summer Spotlight event either (Rewards and Support were useless), and then Maid of Sker was made free with GWG...😬

    Anyway, how's 911 Operator? I'm tempted by Hotline Miami too, but I have a feeling it'll join game pass at some point.

    $5 for the Escapists 2 DLC seems like a good deal, not that I've gotten around to playing the sequel quite yet.

    Looking through the list again and definitely recommend:
    A Hat in Time - Super adorable fun mostly family friendly platformer.
    Fell Seal - Basically FF tactics, although I haven't played it myself yet
    Nine parchments - cool action RPG, can be played solo or coop
    Slay the Spire - best game I've ever played (also on game pass, but at $12.50 it's absolutely worth buying to keep forever)
    Tricky Towers - fun little tetris variant. If you load the tower too much on one side it will fall over since gravity is acting on the blocks and the tower will start to sway and fall over.

    the hotline miami games are great you just need to get used to it ,the difficulty for both and the level design for HM2 can be off puting tho (lots of big levels )

    There's some great games in this list, but I already own most that I'd prefer. I might pick up Shaq-Fu anyhow.

    Too bad Othercide is already 40% off. I bought it at full price during that summer promotion and never received the $10 gift card. I only bought it full price to meet the criteria for the gift card, as I'd already spent $12 on another featured game. Oddly, Xbox support acknowledged I should have received the gift card but instantly closed the case and told me to contact Rewards support. Rewards support acknowledged I should have received the gift card but instantly closed the case and told me to contact Xbox support. I gave up after running circles for a week or two.
    I'm sure plenty of others got swindled by that promotion, too.
    It seems I’m not alone on this, which sucks because I didn’t want someone else to go through this either

    But yeah this sale for me is a kick in the nuts too because No Straight Roads is now 25% off, and I only purchased it outright because of said promotion too, and then it turns out I suck at the game and can’t get past the first boss and therefore can’t even enjoy the game

    Now I’m 51$ broke-er and I didn’t even get the gift card of 10$ that I was entitled to, just the same ole run-around from Microsoft and Rewards
    wierd i got my 5€ + the rewards points fine(didnt have gamepass at that time tho)

    Welp, the TA notification I got from this sale says there's 40 items on my wishlist that are discounted sooo I guess it's time to add even more to my backlog roll Might wait until the end of the week to see if they discount the MS Points for Xbox giftcards, but not holding my breath there.
    Hey, you! Pipe down!

    Hot Deals on those gift cards have been discontinued, the new system they have is a discounted gift card with an auto redeem function, meaning if you turn on "auto redeem" through the Xbox Rewards app, at the first of each month they'll automatically give you a $10 gift card for 8,750 points instead of the usual 9, 300 points (or regional equivalent, I've seen some users on reddit saying they're getting £5).
    If you have to ask, you're streets behind.

    Grabbing SteamWorld Dig and Anodyne for now because SteamWorld Dig 2 was fantastic (thank you Game Pass) and can't beat those prices.

    Great sale, 10 items from my wishlist. For those that dismiss it because it's got no AAA games on, dig a little deeper. Probably time for me to bite on The Church in the Darkness.
    Say everything with a smile

    Shit, I was totally unaware of that. Thanks for the heads up!

    How does it work exactly?
    I mean, can i just set it like the day before the month ends to get a discounted 10 gift card and then turn off the auto redeem?
