Microsoft Rewards: How To Claim 2000 Bonus Points On Xbox In December 2

Update: Since we first published this guide, Microsoft Rewards has also added a new "Season of Xbox" punch card for 150 points, along with an "Xbox Series S Gilded Hunter Bundle" punch card for 50 points and a Game Awards 2022 punch card for 50 points.

Both of the first two punch cards expire on December 19th, with the first requiring you to earn an achievement in the "Season of Xbox" collection, and the latter simply requiring you to follow a few links to different Microsoft Store pages.

The Game Awards 2022 punch card expires on December 18th, and again just requires hitting a few links.


Original story: 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.

December 2022's "Monthly Bonus Round" challenge has just begun, and by satisfying a few easy requirements by December 15th, you can top up your account by another 2000 points (around Ā£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 Microsoft Bing search on five separate days
  • Complete 3 "daily sets" (accessible via Microsoft Bing)
  • Earn 3 achievements in Xbox One / Series X / Series S games
  • Complete a weekly set

As a bonus, if you log into the Microsoft Rewards dashboard on a browser, some regions will find a "Christmas" punch card for 150 points, and there's also a new punch card on console called "Xbox Game Pass Games to Play Together" in which you can get 500 points for completing one achievement in one of a few specific 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.

Note: Not available in all regions. Full regional details have not been provided by Microsoft.
