Is anything given out at the Xbox One "Test Drive" events?

I know that these are the versions of the Xbox One events that are less special and not as involved, but I was wondering if there's any incentive to be the first 50 there or anything like that, or if it's more a casual thing.

I know they usually give out a Xbox One at the Microsoft Store ones.

Really? I know they were giving out a bunch of 12 month XBL cards to the first people in line at some other events, but these Test Drive ones feel more like a manned kiosk than any type of special occasion that other stores or places have.

I heard they were offering people off the street a job with their PR department. Surely a random and oblivious stranger can do a better job then the current people they have employed.

It seems like the Test Drive things are just a SUV-type vehicle they drive into the parking lot (or mall) and they have the Xbox One kiosk in the back of it or something and someone can hold the controller for a few seconds and maybe do a race of Forza. Much more limited than Area One, but I'm looking forward to holding the controller real quick just to get even more excited for launch.

I can't imagine how awful a job would be if you had to interact with gamers every day. D:

I went to the first Road to Launch event and they gave out free 12 month XBL subscriptions to the first 50 people in line. There where over 200 people at the event.
