As much as we love Microsoft Rewards, it kind of feels like Xbox ignores the program a little bit at times. You never hear Phil Spencer talking about it, or Aaron Greenberg, or Sarah Bond... it's sitting off on the sidelines in some ways.
However, there is one member of Team Xbox who is fairly active in talking about Microsoft Rewards, and that's the Xbox Loyalty Marketing Lead, Daniel Martins. Earlier this week, he took to Twitter asking fans of Microsoft Rewards what they like about the program, as well as things they'd like to see improved in the future:
It's been a couple of days since this tweet, and Martins has received over 950 (!) replies in that time. Yesterday, he called the love for Microsoft Rewards "overwhelming and humbling", and thanked fans for their feedback.
There's still time though of course! If you want to let Daniel know what you think of Microsoft Rewards, we suggest replying to his original tweet (the one above). Feel free to also drop your comments down below as well if you want to!
What do you think needs improving about Microsoft Rewards? Let us know your thoughts.
The app. It so often goes wrong, or doesn’t register things you do, or you have to quit it and restart to get it to do them.
Have they used it? One of the very basic main things I'd say would be fix the amount of broken links...the bing integration being the biggest culprit - rarely takes you back to the rewards page.
Clicking on a game you have to earn an achievement on will usually take you to your installed games rather than the store. Where as clicking on things that shouldn't take you to the store ends up doing so.
The broken links are the biggest annoyance for me of something that one of xboxs biggest selling points.
Also sometimes when I start up a game from gamepass I have on quick resume it won't register that I've done the daily task of playing a gamepass game.
Other than that, what should they increase?...the amount of points given of course
The daily 250 points playing with friends on pc would be a must fix for me , it decides not to do it at least 1 or 2 times a week and 250 points quickly adds up to a huge load of missing points , and I know I could email support but it's a lot of messing around and the last time I did this whoever replied didn't know what the hell I was on about
I've no problems with the rewards program (in fact it's great) but as stated above the app isn't great, it didn't work at all on Tuesday for me.
I would say get the app running more smoothly and make it less grindy and filled with promotional material that hardly provides any benefits.
PlayStation could learn from this, except they think about cash and not the reward.
I love Rewards. I genuinely enjoy the daily quizzes. I will, however, go postal if next month's Top 10 achievement thing doesn't register.
How about finally bringing it to Puerto Rico?
My only gripe is things not registering. Rewards are already a bonus so i try not to linger in the negativity. I’ve had sale items not register and have contacted support about it with no action. Preorders and deluxe bundles haven’t worked before. The rewards themselves are super easy and I use them to pay for game pass. It’s a pretty good service despite the bugs.
I had a streak of 51 weeks and never got anything from it. Spoke to microsoft about it but got nowhere. Restarted apo during that period and even redownloaded no luck. Wouldn't register weekly treasure either. I would like for the month of your birthday to offer points for achievements.
For some reason I never get the points from the daily quests on bing or the 5-10 points for checking promoted games in the ms store
My dad has had around 3500 pts not register over the past 3 months all connected to top 10 Punch card not tracking properly. Think the consensus is improve the app...
They need to get rid of or increase the annual redemption limit. I hit it early every year and it kills my desire to do some of the special promos they have or even buy more. Once Sony brings their system in I will have even less desire to make the majority of my buys on XBox once my limit is hit.
@Martsmall they have changed it to play fortnight on the cloud lol. I don't know if it's everywhere, but it's like that here for a few weeks. It's better. I just wish you could pick the game.
MAKE EVERYTHING WORK
theres usually something that either doesn't work or takes hours to register
@Nokebo yeh but not for everyone ,maybe it's planned for everyone later down the line ,if it's better to get I'll take it lol
@Savage_Joe that’s wild that the program isn’t available in PR yet. Or in other places.
Everyone deserves a shot at these points.
They can’t run it everywhere because in some countries it’s against the law to offer what is effectively a financial reward for just clicking on something. I guess that would be because any purchases using reward points are outside their tax system.
More regions I would say. I don't have rewards here.
Very useful, I've been using it for a couple of years now. When you get to a certain 'week streak' it only gives you 2500points every 10 weeks. I'm at a 91 week streak now and some bonus points at 75weeks or 100weeks would be a good idea to reward loyalty. Also, I think there should be a small discount on bigger vouchers, e.g. a £10 voucher costs the same as two £5 vouchers.
Yes the things not registering can get annoying quickly... I have gotten multiple levels in Assassins Creed Origins or whatever the monthly quest is and it will not register as me beating the quest for some reason.
