What are we realistically supposed to do with 20 MSP?

Sometimes things will be on sale for odd numbers of points. You're sure to eventually have 80 points in spare change over time.

But how can you ever use the 20 points? As I said before, everything on the marketplace is in dollar increments. Nothing on the marketplace costs anything less than a dollar. I suppose if you did Xbox Live Rewards you might be able to reach a dollar with their surveys eventually.

Yup. Or you can sit here crying about it...

Typical GameFAQs insults. Yes, asking a question means I'm obviously crying about it. Who knows if MSP will even still be used in 4 years, or if the new Xbox will carry over old points?


Everything else dealing with rewards is issued in 100-point increments. I guess you're stuck shopping for avatar gear. Doesn't that come in odd increments?

Xbox Rewards will often deposit points in strange amounts, such as 100 or 60. The 20 points can be combined with those odd deposits.

This. When you get 2% back thanks to your gamerscore that will be a small number. I think I've seen games discounted to 320 before. Or you could buy a gamerpic right now for 20 points. I always have points in my account. More free points means at some point in the future I will delay buying more points.

some indie games cost 80 points, so 4 indie games at 80msp = 320 points

1. Being as it is part of XBL Rewards, the points will not be deposited into your account until you have at least 100 pending points.

2. There is a metric **** ton of content available on the marketplace for 80, 160, 240, 320, 560, 960, and other amounts other than 400, 800, 1200, and 1600 points.

3. What compulsion has lead so many people to a. ***** about, or feel insulted by, 1/5 of what they gave you for watching 10 hours of the ESPN, UFC, or MLB apps last month, for doing absolutely nothing, and b. feel they are special enough to have their own topic about it instead of sticking to the existing topics?

4. Go look up Kameo gamer pics, at the very least that right there is 4 pieces of content available from the marketplace for 20 points, not everything is an even dollar amount, and then you have to factor in sales where content is discounted to amounts that don't come out to an even dollar amount.

Why do I have this funny feeling that my post will be ignored for the fourth or fifth time?

I'm not certain that this is the first time for this account to be gold,(in which case I don't think either of us would get them, i've only just noticed that in the fine print...) but it's worth a shot i figure. will i get an email from microsoft about the referral bit?
