"I thought it was BS too, I was hoping for a cake prop for my Avatar or something."

Yeah, that's what I was expecting. Or maybe like a birthday hat. Either that or a free XBLA game of their choice or something. It isn't like they would lose any money doing this since all of these things are digital downloads and would cost them nothing.

It is almost insulting to receive 20 points. It is like giving someone a gift card to a store worth only .25. It is pretty much pointless.


It would cost them money to give away an XBLA game.

These points are added to your XBL Rewards pending points, are they not?

In other words, you can't spend them until you have 100 points pending and they get deposited around the 15th or 30th of the month.

I tell you, 20 extra points would have been handy this month, it would have pushed me to 100 points pending, meaning I would have had points deposited this month, instead of having to wait until next month, or the month after.

I'm pissed that a business out there for money didn't give me anything for my birthday. I am entitled to get something from them.

If Microsoft gives gifts for peoples birthdays on xbl rewards, Do it right or don't do it at all.

20 points is like tipping a waitress a penny.

Translation: I should be entitled to huge benefits.

There's no right or wrong here. Be lucky they're giving you something in the first place. They owe you nothing.
