    Got My Money Refunded When I Put SO mUCh work into geting all those points

    Keep in mind that any funds from promotions or the Rewards program has an expiration date. If they were from the Xbox Rewards program, they expire 1 year after deposit. If they were from the Microsoft Rewards program, they expire 90 days after redemption.

    Feel cheated by the promise of "no expiry" when purchasing "Microsoft Points".

    Promotional balances have expiration dates. Like rewards money and Bing $5 cards, but the the balance from buying gift cards doesn't. I don't see why the old MS points would expire either, unless you never converted them.

    Why the 90 day expiration on XBox Reward Cards

    Hi

    That does seem quite short. usually for promotional offers they are limited to 90 days, but regular gift cards don't have that limit.

    Did you purchase promotional gift codes from somewhere? Bing Rewards for example are promotional codes that expire.

    It is Microsoft Rewards which you purchase using Bing reward points. I guess that explains it then.

    How do I accumulate enough points for a $20 gift card?

    Keep doing the daily missions in the Microsoft rewards, and wait for the discount gift cards to roll around, as they often do that way it costs you less points to redeem the gift card.

    Also as a gift card has to be spent within 90 days, keep building up your points and only redeem whenever you are going to spend it, as after the 90 days the balance of the gift card disappears.

    Hallo,

    if you be a part of the MS Bing Reward Programm and redeem your Points in a "credit card"/ you have to use them within 90 day.

    You can see when it expired here and what was going on here.

    Hope this help you!
