Assuming everything works as planned, if you already went through the conversion then the next time you add an MSP code to your account you should get the real money value of the MSP added to your account. That's what the MSP to money FAQ says.

That's for adding MSP codes in general, not just MSP from Bing.

There hasn't been any confusion to how much that 20 MSP is worth.

And we're not even sure if Xbox Live Rewards will continue after the switch. On twitter they said they don't have any news on that at this time. There was no monthly survey this month, and this is the third or fourth month without a monthly promotion. Also, before the official MSP To Money conversion all Xbox Live Rewards pending points will be deposited. Even if you don't have 100+ MSP pending.

Got this e-mail:

As you may have heard from the announcements at E3, major changes are coming to Xbox Live. One of these changes is the switch to local currency for purchases on Xbox. That means Microsoft Points will soon be retired and you'll instead be able to use money to purchase content on Xbox (see Xbox.com Points FAQ for more info).

With all these changes, it's become necessary for us to evolve the way we reward you. Starting August 1, 2013, you will not be able to earn Microsoft Points through Xbox Live Rewards any longer. Not to worry, though! Since this currency change is impacting the structure of the program, we're taking the opportunity to make Xbox Live Rewards even better. You'll continue to get rewarded for doing the things you love on Xbox Live just not with Microsoft Points. So come back to rewards.xbox.com on September 1, 2013 for the full scoop. You can also follow us at @XboxLiveRewards on Twitter for the latest updates.

Finally, despite the Microsoft Points changes, all your hard work will not go to waste. On August 7, 2013 we'll deposit ALL your Pending Rewards Points into your account, even if you have less than 100. And if you still have Points in your Xbox account when Microsoft Points are retired, they'll be transitioned into your country's local currency. Your currency will be available for use at the Xbox Stores as usual. For more on the Points transition, see Xbox.com Points FAQ here.

So keep earning Microsoft Points with Xbox Live Rewards through July 31, 2013 and stay tuned for exciting changes coming soon!

Punch Cards.

The punchcards are not the monthly promotions. The two punchcards running right now aren't even monthly. One of them is running for a month and a half. The other is running for over two months, and neither it's start or end dates matched up with the beginning or end of a month. Sure, the XBLA punchcards ran for a month, but as we can see the punchcards aren't tied to the months.

The monthly promotions were the ones that used to start and end each month. Use the MLB app for a certain amount of hours, buy exercise related video games, buy horror related content. Those kind of promotions. MyPunchcard has it's own section like MySurvey and MyAchievements.
