How To Claim 2500 Bonus Microsoft Rewards Points On Xbox In October

It's that time again! We're big fans of the Microsoft Rewards program here at Pure Xbox, which allows you to complete tasks in order to earn redeemable points which can be spent on gift cards, donations and much more.

October 2021's "Monthly Bonus Round" challenge has just begun, and by satisfying a few easy requirements by September 15th, you can top up your account by another 2000 - 2550 points (around £2 / $2).

You'll find this punch card on the Microsoft Rewards app for console, and here's what you'll need to do:

  • Complete a Bing search on five separate days
  • Complete 3 "daily sets"
  • Earn 3 achievements in Xbox One / Series X / Series S games
  • Claim 500 points and then (ideally) donate to a non-profit of your choice
  • Complete a quiz for up to 50 extra points

There are also a few other ways to earn points right now (aside from the usual methods), with special 250-point punch cards available for earning an achievement in Diablo 2: Resurrected and FIFA 22, along with a variety of punch cards offering up to 6000 points for purchasing upcoming and/or newly-released Xbox titles.

If you're new to the Microsoft Rewards program, this is just the tip of the iceberg in terms of obtaining points - you can also earn hundreds per-day by completing Bing searches on PC and mobile, earning Achievements in Xbox games, finding Weekly Treasures, pre-ordering specific games and much more.
