How To Claim 2000 Bonus Microsoft Points On Xbox In April

Update: If you're having trouble getting the Microsoft Rewards Top 10 punch card to work, you're not alone! It doesn't appear to be working for everyone just yet, so keep trying it over the next few hours / next couple of days.

If you're wondering what it is, the punch card requires you to complete just one achievement from a select number of Xbox Game Studios titles, and in return you'll get an extra 500 points.

So, with everything together, you're looking at (at least) 2500 Monthly Bonus Round points!


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.

April 2021's "Monthly Bonus Round" challenge has just begun, and by satisfying a few easy requirements by April 15th, you can top up your account by another 2000 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
  • Complete the Microsoft Rewards Top 10 punch card
  • Complete a quiz for up to 50 extra points

Additionally, the web-based version of Microsoft Rewards is currently giving away an extra 150 points for completing a very basic punch card about education, and if you're playing Outriders on Xbox Game Pass this weekend, you can pick up an extra 250 points for simply playing the game and obtaining one achievement.

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.
