    Nice thread. I used to have Xbox Live Rewards until my account got banned, I created my new account and couldn't be bothered to set it up again.

    Xbox Live Rewards can be very useful for those couple of hundred Microsoft Points. I would defiantly recommend using the service.

    I joined the program back in its infancy and so far I've accumulated almost 1900 points
    It's a long and enduring journey bound by a mutualistic relationship

    Kind of on topic/off topic:

    If you are making a thread for Xbox Live Rewards, you should make one for Bing Rewards. In around 1 & 1/3rd years I have amassed around ~64 dollars in Microsoft points (5100), not including the $10 I have got from Amazon, the times I forget to Bing, and some random contests I have joined. Just commenting because you said you have accumulated 1900 microsoft points. In the past 5 months I have gotten 2300.

    I understand and I would, but I just don't know where to post it as it doesn't necessarily belong in this forum as it is a search engine rewards program like swagbucks. If a forum created just for these sort of things (GPT sites included), then you would have already seen a thread for it
    Before it was called Bing Rewards (previously known as Club Bing), there was Live Search Club aka Club Live. It had an assortment of online word games where you earn tickets by completing them. Back then (if I remember correctly), captchas were absent from the program thus making the use of 'bots' easy and hassle free. In my year or so of being in the program (with the help of bots and multiple accounts), I have amassed roughly 3k. My redeemed prizes included but not limited to: $100 wireless keyboards, wireless controllers, webcams, games...I was still in high school then and having made that amount online was quite an achievement for me. I stopped shortly after they abolished the programs and introduced in its place Club Bing now known as Bing Rewards
    After that I got into GPT/survey sites and made some money but it started to get stale and boring so I found a new venture in flipping games (some referred to it as Videogame Day Trading). In 2011 (between Sept-Nov) I had a capital exceeding 8k-of course about half of it came from my own wallet.
    Now I just work

    Yeah the reason why I wouldn't make it myself is because I don't know what forum it would go under. Yeah dude, wasn't saying that you should do Bing Rewards because it gives you more Microsoft Points than XBL Rewards, was just trying to give some background information on Bing Rewards, in case you have not heard of it, by telling you how much I have gotten over the past years, not trying to cause a "I make more than you" argument haha.

    Yeah I know
    Actually Bing Rewards allows for a quicker accumulation of points unlike XBL Rewards where really the only time you can earn points are thru the monthly surveys and the occasional promotions

    Things to note regarding the April's PlaytoEarn Punchcard

    You don't need to buy four arcade games that are at least 800 points, as you just need to spend 3200 points and you get a punch when you've spent 800 MSP total, and then 1,600, 2,400 and 3,200.
    You also don't need to play four arcade games for five hours each to get the time punches, as you just get a punch for every five hours played amongst arcade games.

    Also, be sure to check the XBL Deals of the Week thread by denz as all throughout this month, there will be plenty of sale in which you should be able to complete your punchcard. Already there have been the MS Studio sale, Sega sale as well as the weekly sale
