How To Claim 2500 Bonus Microsoft Points On Xbox In August

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.

August 2021's "Monthly Bonus Round" challenge has just begun, and by satisfying a few easy requirements by August 15th, you can top up your account by another 2000 - 2500 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 (500 extra points)
  • Complete a quiz for up to 50 extra points

The aforementioned Microsoft Rewards top 10 punch card (which gifts you an extra 500 points) is actually really easy to complete, and you can check out our MS Rewards 'top 10' guide for some hints and tips if you need them.

Additionally, you can earn an extra 300 points by logging into your Microsoft Rewards account on a browser and completing three very basic, search-based punch cards ('Savour The Summer', 'Celebrate the Summer Games' and 'Xbox Game Pass for PC'), and if you're buying anything in either the Xbox Summer Sale or the Xbox Summer Spotlight promotion, you could potentially get up to an extra 5000 points depending on how much you buy.

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.
