How To Claim 2000 Bonus Microsoft Points On Xbox In April

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.

May 2021's "Monthly Bonus Round" challenge has just begun, and by satisfying a few easy requirements by May 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
  • Claim 500 points (and ideally, donate them to a non-profit of your choice)
  • 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 'eco-friendly' punch card, and if you've bought the recent release of Nier Replicant, 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.
