Guide: Easy Achievements For The 10K Microsoft Rewards Challenge

Update (Tue 11th May, 2021 21:30 BST): The Microsoft Rewards 10K Xbox Gamerscore Challenge has returned for May 2021, so we've updated this guide below with a few extra games to help you get some easy achievements!

Original story (Fri 8th Jan, 2021 14:00 GMT): The Microsoft Rewards program kicked off January's Xbox Gamerscore Challenge earlier this week, tasking players with earning up to 10K Gamerscore on Xbox in exchange for the equivalent in Microsoft Rewards points.

To activate the punch card, you'll want to head to the Microsoft Rewards app on console, and look for the card with the 2021 symbol, after which you can start earning Achievements to put towards gift cards and other goodies.
