I got an email titled "Here is your gift from Xbox LIVE" The sender's email is: Xbox@engage.xbox.com. It says "Thanks for being an Xbox LIVE member. You've earned a free gift for purchasing your Xbox LIVE subscription. Just follow the instructions below, and you can download it immediately.*"

I did just re-new my XBL subscription last month. I just don't like clicking on links that I'm not sure about. I don't remember seeing or reading anything about a reward when I re-newed. So does anyone gotten a email like this once they renewed? Legit?

You sure that's even the right email? Hover over the link and see if the email address is the same as what's displayed.

Regardless I wouldn't even consider trying it.

When I hover over the link it is the same. I just tweeted to Xbox support to see if they knew but they haven't responded.

Yeah. @xboxsupport just said it was legit. I just wanted to be sure. Especially with all the posts lately about accounts being phished.
