Xbox LIVE Rewards now has a new section called "MyAchievements". You earn special gifts during your birthday month and get up to a 2% rebate on all your Marketplace purchase every month. Here is a link with more details:
So, what does everyone think? I think that this is good but very crappy compared to what they could have done. Think of all the customers they could draw in if they gave more incentives. The least they could have done is give us something up front for each tier. But we now have to wait for our birthdays. This just seems like a cheap way out. I know I have gone a month or more without making Marketplace purchases or minimal ones at that so this isn't as big for me.
The birthday gift is worth 15p, that isn't even worth a tiny avatar item. The whole principle works on you buying mor things from them to get a tiny bit back. If it was retroactive, that would be fine, but I sense that it will not be retroactive on past purchases
You shouldn't have done that http://img23.imageshack.us/img23/9346/hellraiseriii3hellonear.jpg
