Xbox Dev Responds As Microsoft Rewards Begins Suspending People For No Reason

If you've been trying to redeem your Microsoft Rewards points over the weekend, you may have run into an issue where your Microsoft Rewards account has been unexpectedly suspended - fortunately, it's just a tech issue on Xbox's end.

Xbox Loyalty Marketing Lead Daniel Martins has been taking to Twitter to explain what's been going on, advising those who have been incorrectly suspended to contact Microsoft Rewards support:

Reports were flooding in a couple of days ago from Microsoft Rewards users across the globe, with the support team seemingly not aware of the issue at the time, suggesting they could have violated the Microsoft Services Agreement.

However, it's definitely just a bug, and Martins has advised that a fix has now been put in place to stop the issue from affecting additional accounts, but those who have suffered it already will have to wait until Monday at least:

"Update: a fix was deployed on late Friday to stop the issue from affecting additional accounts. The fix did not address already affected accounts.

The team will reconvene on Monday to work on the fix for impacted members. More updates will come. Sorry for inconvenience."
