The huge Xbox Summer Sale (also known as the Ultimate Game Sale) began earlier this week, and as a result, Microsoft has been celebrating by rewarding select Xbox players with free gift cards.
However, there's a catch. As pointed out by various commenters on Reddit, it looks like these freebies are restricted to a handful of regions only (US, Canada & Australia we've spotted so far), and appear to be quite limited:
Here's a look at the message some Xbox players are receiving:
Of course, this is nothing new - Microsoft periodically gives out free gift cards to Xbox owners, but typically only in certain regions. This time around, players seem to be getting anything from around $5-10, so we suggest checking your Xbox Live Messages to see if any freebies have dropped in your inbox.
Have you received a free Xbox Gift Card from Microsoft? Let us know in the comments below.
I've been lucky enough to receive one one these codes from Microsoft i got a 7.99 gift gard from Xbox..
I received a survey and I asked for Banjo-Kazooie 😁.
Got to check mine and we do need a new Banjo-Kazooie game!
@BlueOcean I'd be over the moon with a new Banjo game!
@Razputinman @IronMan30 Do me a favour and tell them in the survey 😂.
@BlueOcean no gc or survey. I will let them know whenever I do get one. Lol
Maybe I will get lucky!
Sony gave people £10 a couple months ago and I didn't get it and now xbox have some money away and I haven't got that either, is there some hidden requirement in missing 😂
Maybe Nintendo will give me some lol
Boo! I haven't got one! 😭
Me neither, oh well... 😔
I haven't checked yet, but you know, if you download the Bing app and sign in with your Xbox account you can earn points by just regularly searching the internet or doing little quizzes. And then you can trade those points for things like a free month of Gold or giftcards.
So far I've received:
1 month gold
1 month gamepass
5 gift cards at 5$
1 gift card at 10$
I got lucky and I got a 5 dollar gift card! Promptly used it to get the two pack of Wolfenstein games for less than 5 bucks! What a steal, and I have never played them!
@ThePrettySenshi Thank you, just downloaded the Bing App, now getting nearer to a £5.00 gift card... 😀
I haven't got any message saying you got 5 or $10
@IronMan30 Great .
Also, sorry, I don't check this website every day and I'm so slow with replying ( T_T)
