If you're a big Microsoft Rewards fan, you may have noticed a new promotion on the Xbox MS Rewards app recently called the "Great New Games Spotlight", which gives you 2500 free points for buying certain games on the Xbox Store.
Specifically, you need to spend £40 / $50 in order to get those 2500 free points, which doesn't sound like a great deal on the face of it, but there are some big, popular games in the list that have been selling like hotcakes recently. If you're going to buy them anyway, you may as well get some free Microsoft Rewards points for doing so!
You can find the list on the Microsoft Rewards Xbox app itself, but here are some highlights:
- Atomic Heart
- Blood Bowl 3
- Deliver Us Mars
- Destiny 2: Lightfall
- Forza Horizon 5 Premium Edition
- Hi-Fi RUSH
- Hogwarts Legacy
- Resident Evil 4 (Remake)
- Wanted: Dead
- Wild Hearts
- WWE 2K23
What we're saying here, then, is that if you're planning to buy any of these games like Hogwarts Legacy, Resident Evil 4 or WWE 2K23, we highly suggest activating the "Great New Games Spotlight" punch card on the Xbox Microsoft Rewards app first, which simply involves hitting the first button on the card to "explore the games collection".
Once you've racked up £40 / $50 worth of purchases (which in many cases might just be one game), you should automatically find that the free 2500 Microsoft Rewards points are deposited into your account. Simple as that!
