In this tutorial I will be showing you how to get verified on ExpertZone really easily. I have seen that lots of people have trouble with this so I hope this helps you.

Requirements
  • A hotmail account
  • A brain?

  1. first off you want to go to this link - http://expertzone.microsoft.com/default.aspx
  2. Once on the ExpertZone website you will want to click on "Have a Live id, But not an ExpertZone account?"

  3. This will take you to a Windows Live id page, just simply sign in with your Hotmail account.
  4. Now you will want to fill everything out just like I did. Apart from replacing the email with your one and you can make up your own name if you really want to

  5. Check the "I agree" box and the click on "save". It will now come up with a page saying "welcome to ExpertZone". You will now want to go to your hotmail account. You should (Hopefully) have an email from ExpertZone. It may be in your junk folder.

    Click on the verification link and you should end up at the ExpertZone homepage. Well done you now have a verified ExpertZone account :smile:
  6. If you want to get codes for the windows 7 phone avatar prop then click on the box shown in the picture.

    Now click on the next box that pops ups and then after that you will want to click on "Take this course now"
  7. Skip through all the chapters until you get to the quiz. The answers for the quiz are as follows.
    Question 1 - "Play games with Xbox Live"
    Question 2 - "All of the above"
    Question 3 - "Its automatically linked"
    Question 4 - "Xbox Live Extras"
    Question 5 - "Collection in the games hub"

    When you are finished the quiz click on "Submit training"

    Go back to the homepage and reclick on the windows prop banner which should now say "get your code now". There should now be a code sitting in front of you like shown in the picture below.

    Oh and by the way, I haven't redeemed the code in the picture - "Jabba The Hutt" got it.

I hope this tutorial helped you in some way :smile:

Fix for the refresh glitch! Thanks to HYPNOT1ZED M1NDS for clearing this up. ALL credit goes to him.
to fix this you need to make sure you have signed out of your hotmail before filling it out. i couldn,t fully sign out so i used a different browser and that worked.
Remember ALL credit goes to him for finding the fix.

Interesting way of doing it. All I did was say I worked at Wal-Mart and my employee number or whatever was 123456 and it verified me.

Well there is more Gears of War missions to come on there so they might hopefully hold a reward :smile: I am hoping for more avatar stuff cos I love getting avatar props :lol:

Well if that works for you! But doing it this way actually gives them a proper store number and so on so if Microsoft decide to look at your account and see "123456" as your employee number then they will know something is a bit fishy :lol:

This doesn't work for some stuff like the Gears of War beta. You need to verify your an actual employee by submitting paper work.

Well this is exactly how I got the beta codes! No paper work. After doing this it should say that you are verified in the top right corner.

Some other people are having this problem as well. I am trying to find a fix. I haven't tried signing up on EpertZone in a couple of days but it was working for me then so I dont know if it is doing this for everyone. I will tell you if I find out how to fix this :smile:

I'm not to concerned, if they look and remove me from it I won't be to concerned. There has never been anything I like given from it. I just did it so I could say I got the beta's :smile:

It works for the Gears Beta, I got a code. They keep emailing me I think for verification r something but I jut ignore it and I stay verified and get free stuff.

Im sure that they will be adding more stuff to it though so it will be handy to have an account. But it is probably highly unlikely that they will remove you.

What step are you on when it says that? Is that after you click on "learn more" on the banner? If so the picture never loaded for me so it was a plain white box above loads of writing. So if you click on the box then it should take you to the survey.
