This is not a troll post, I am genuinely curious what anyone could possibly do with this 20 point birthday present. It's not like anything on the marketplace is 1220 points or anything like that, it's all 400, 800, 1200 or 1600+. The 20 points is literally unspendable. And no, I'm not whining about getting stuff for free, I am wondering why MS would bother putting useless points into everyone's accounts.

Save them for what? Four years from now when I'll get 80 points that are actually useful? It's not like I can buy 60 points to round out to an even dollar I could actually spend, it's just going to sit there in my account being useless.

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.

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?

I am almost positive that Ive read a few posts about Reward MS Points have an expiration date on them....or it just might be the vodka kicking in...
