Xbox Quests:
This month's quests:
Add Xbox Live Gold to Home
Play 10 hours of online multiplayer
Add 10 new friends
Completing all three gifts earns you a "Mystery Gift" with approximate retail value $10) and a sweepstakes entry for a Samsung 55" QLED 4K TV.

The Xbox Quests competition is offered only to residents of the United States.



Game Pass Goals:
This month simply asks you to use your Game Pass, a lot:
Play a Game Pass game on :
5 different days to win a Mystery Gift
15 different days to win an Ultimate Mystery Gift
25 different days to win an Ultimate Mystery Gift and a sweepstakes entry for a 24-karat gold plated Project Scorpio Edition Xbox One X
In order to count as a "day" the game(s) must be played for at least 30 minutes. I don't know when the day starts, but the promotion starts and end based on PST (UTC-8), so that might be the safest bet.

"Mystery Gift" has an approximate retail value of $5 USD, "Ultimate Mystery Gift" has an approximate value of $10 USD.

Game Pass Goals are open to residents of the United States and United Kingdom.

This post does not substitute for terms and conditions for either contest. Please consult the official terms and conditions if you are unsure about anything stated in the post and subsequent thread.

Thanks for posting this and last month. I have no idea where to find these, is there any way to see my progress? It'd be nice to know Microsoft was actually properly tracking my progress last month.

Also, what does "Add Xbox LIVE Gold to Home" mean.

Q&A time:
Where do you find these?
Both Xbox Quests and Game Pass Goals are found (at minimum) in the subscriptions store page on the console. They can also be found in a normal web browser (at least the rules can).

Subscription have their own store pages now?
They do indeed. The guaranteed way of finding them is to go to "My Games and Apps", scroll to "Memberships", and then select the icon for the membership you have. The Xbox Quest will be in the right column of the top row of the Gold page, and the Game Pass Goal will be the first item in the top row.

It is also possible to get to these pages in other ways. XBL Gold's page for example has been prominently placed next to your recent games/apps on the home dashboard recently.

Can I see my progress?
Nope, none of the quests/goals have their progress tracked for you to see. Microsoft is well aware of this, as they specifically mention it in contest pages, and see fit not to change it for the time being.

I qualified but didn't get my prize?
Prizes typically don't go out until around 10 business days (Monday-Friday, excluding any major holidays) after the month ends, although the official rules give allow for the prizes to be delivered as late as four weeks after the month ends. If you win a sweepstakes, you should be contacted through email. Everyone else will get a message from Xbox Live directly to their Gamertag.

NOTE: These messages can and have been sent when you are offline, and don't trigger notifications correctly in such instances. So ensure you manually check your messages from Xbox Live if others have received their prizes but you haven't yet.

That's great and all, but you still haven't answered all my questions
Stop being impatient alklein, I'm getting there.

What is the "Add Xbox LIVE Gold to Home" task for December?
With the Fall Update for One, Microsoft introduced "customization" to the home page of the dashboard. This is a garbage description of what it actually is. From your home page of the dashboard, scroll all the way down until you hit the bottom, at which point a section titled "Add More" will be shown. This allows you to add more tabs to the bottom of the home page. XBL Gold will likely be one of the recommended boxes to add, so just click that. If not, click "See all suggestions" and then "From Xbox", and it will be there.

Admittedly, this does at least make getting to GwG and future Xbox Quests/Game Pass Goals mildly easier to get to.

Anything else I should know?
Don't bother going for Xbox Quests without an active Gold subscription, or Game Pass Goals without an active Game Pass subscription. The progress during that time won't count, even if you subscribe later. Prizes will only go to people who have an active Xbox Live account for Quests, or an active Game Pass subscription (trial or paid) for Goals on the last day of the month. If your subscriptions runs out before the end of the month and you don't re-up, you won't get the prize even if you complete the tasks.

Thanks!
By reading these words, you are contractually obligated to pay me a vast sum of 1,000,000 bitcoins. Failure to do so will result in the knowledge you learned something from a person on the internet whom you didn't bother to thank, which is a fate worse than death.

That's fine, I have more than plenty because I bought heavily into Bitcoin a long time ago.

Oh wait, no I didn't, because I though $150/coin was too expensive and only an idiot would pay that cry

Copy-pasting format led to that mistake. Nice catch.

For those asking about when the messages will appear about what you won, it’s between the 10th- 15th of the month. Keep an eye on your Xbox Live messages on the dashboard or on the mobile app.

So far I've got Transformers 1, month of Xbox Gold, and a Shark card for GTA5.

I took out the 14 day trial in November & the £1 Game Pass offer on the 28th November, but I've not seen any tile/app under Membership/Game Pass screens; relating to the Game Pass Goals.

Can anybody from the UK, post a link to a photo of what I should be seeing?
