Went into the Xbox store today, had 34.56$ in credit.
Do they give money back for digital purchases? I've probably spent around 250$ in the store since getting my X.

Just wondering.

Yes. I think you can earn up to 10% back from Xbox Live Rewards.

34.56$ is what they deposited, so I'm guessing I spent about 350$ if they give approx 10% back.
Wowsers. Need to slow it down. I was planning on getting a 100$ card this weekend when I get paid in anticipation of an Xmas sale, but I think I'm gonna hold off since I have almost 35$ now. At least until I see what's in sale.

If you are getting 10% back you spent a lot more than just $350. With Xbox Live Gold in order to get 10% you need to have spent at least $1800 over the last year.
I'm not a bad guy. I'm not a good guy. I'm just THE guy.

The amount you get back is depended on what tier you've earned from buying stuff from the xbox store. Gold members get double back with 10% being the highest amount you can get back (a silver account would get 5% at this level). You are usually put back down to the lowest tier at the beginning of the year, but luckily MS is not doing this for 2018. You've got to spend a lot to get to the highest tier, I've probably spent around $500 this year and I currently get 8% at the 2nd highest tier. There are usually special offers to buy or preorder certain things to get bonus credits as well (I bet this is why you got so much). I don't pay much attention to it, so it is always a nice surprise to find money sitting in my account when I go to buy something.
