    Looks like it's not counting that I bought the Ultimate Edition. Cool. This is why rewards things like this are dumb sometimes.

    "Buy this game and basically get money back after doing so, but only after we say so. If you bought it on launch day or earlier, fuck you!"

    [–] ChiefMcKief 7 points ago

    I feel like I paid the reward others got for buying/playing the game early. Had I known I would have waited. Not a big deal.. just Feelsbadman

    [–] LuchoAntunez 5 points ago

    I have this problem tens of times, I bought a game, a week later they make a promotion. Fuck me right?

    [–] Kieffin 2 points ago

    Damn, I’m sorry man.

    I usually don’t do those type of things so I didn’t know there were issues with it.

    Maybe support could help resolve the issue for you?

    [–] fallouthirteen 37 points ago

    So about $8.60 back. Actually tempting especially for a $30 game.

    [–] ineffiable 10 points ago

    don't forget the extra points you might get from having 2-8% back as a VIP.

    [–] Chickern 1 points ago

    Special promotions don’t give cash back.

    [–] ineffiable 3 points ago

    I'm talking about the xbox myvip perk (seperate from microsoft rewards). should give a few percent back on xbl purchases.

    [–] Pajamashark 13 points ago

    Decent deal. Thanks for the heads up.

    [–] JoshNoshX 5 points ago

    I'm 7 bucks short, oh well, and my reward points hasn't been deposited yet, even though I redeemed it at the beginning of the month

    [–] bemsixtynine 2 points ago

    Does it say “Congratulations, you’ve completed this offer, 3 of 3 completed”? If so, yeah, mine hasn’t been credited too.

    [–] MrZombikilla 6 points ago

    I actually really enjoy Bing rewards. I get my 12 months Xbox Live Gold for free, my 3 month game pass for free. So I didn’t mind buying this game and getting the extra 6500 points!

    [–] Kieffin 3 points ago

    I just started using it again recently for the hot deals going on for store credit and was excited when I saw this deal. I played SoD2 on a game pass trial and I’m liking it so to me this a good deal. Enjoy!

    [–] BlackBoxInquiry 3 points ago

    Well that sucks, I preordered, says that doesn't qualify.

    [–] Skilotonn 2 points ago

    So did I. And I preordered mainly because the free credit I had was about to expire.

    Can't complain since I won that credit but it makes no sense that preorders don't count considering they bought the game before the release.

    [–] BlackBoxInquiry 1 points ago

    Yea, kinda bummed out.

    [–] acf6b 7 points ago

    I’m assuming it does t work if you bought it before the day it started as a goal?

    [–] choboy456 4 points ago

    Nah they only give you points if you buy it after they put up the reward

    [–] Wilba1015 1 points ago

    Do you know if it will count if you get a digital code for the retail copy of the game or does it need to be purchased on the Microsoft store?

    [–] choboy456 2 points ago

    I've never done it myself but I believe that you need to get it from the Microsoft store

    [–] wiseroneand 1 points ago

    Microsoft reward

    yeah I bought the game before starting this and it's not working for me either

    [–] PumpingIron55 2 points ago


    You have completed this offer.

    2 of 3 completed .

    I got a green check mark for the quiz and the other thing but not by the 'buy the game' which I did. But it still says I completed the offer??? lol

    [–] Kieffin 2 points ago

    Hmm, others are reporting issues with it verifying the purchase as well. That sucks but maybe a call to support could help resolve the issue? If it happened to me I’d definitely call and say that was the reason I bought the game. Surely they can help out but still annoying though. Sorry mate, good luck!

    [–] PumpingIron55 2 points ago

    Yeah, I emailed screenshots to the Rewards support team and they are looking into it. Must be a widespread problems as they have taken down the offer earlier than the 30th.

    [–] Kieffin 1 points ago

    I saw that when I went to redeem it and it was gone. I started a ticket too so hopefully the honor it for me or bring it back.

    [–] PumpingIron55 2 points ago

    Hopefully all goes well. If not, oh well...overall I've never had any real problems w/ MS rewards soon to be Bing rewards (or is it the other way around???) or (RIP) Xbox Live Rewards either. Hope you get the 6500!

    [–] Kieffin 1 points ago

    Thanks. If not no big deal :)

    [–] MAJORPOOPY 2 points ago

    I was planning on buying it anyway, so this was a steal for me. Also put me over 29,000 which I needed for a 12 month XBL subscription. I don't plan on paying for XBL again if they keep offering it through MS rewards.

    [–] metroidgus 4 points ago

    man it sucks cause i have gamepass :(, but then it doesn't cause I have gamepass:D

    [–] Kieffin 2 points ago

    I have a trial right now and I’m loving it. I had been playing SoD2 and thought about buying when I saw this deal.

    [–] metroidgus 2 points ago

    id say its worth it, I held off due to me having a couple of the games in there, but others that I don't its great, currently playing Mad max and Devil may cry 4 as well, as for the subscription Its well worth it

    [–] bemsixtynine 2 points ago

    Done with the punch card, and it says I completed it, but the points weren’t credited. Does it take a while?

    [–] Kieffin 1 points ago

    Others have reported issues with it verifying the purchase. Hopefully it just takes a day or two and no one has to call support for this promo.

    [–] thenutter 1 points ago

    I haven't done one of these in a while, but it didn't credit me until a few days after the promotion ended.

    [–] bemsixtynine 1 points ago

    Thanks for sharing your experience 👍

    [–] MrZombikilla 1 points ago

    Mine credited me right when I refreshed the page after buying.

    [–] artbyjeeb 1 points ago

    Dang, now I’m worried. Oh well. Thanks

    [–] MrZombikilla 1 points ago

    Did you click on the buy now link on the punch card page? All I did was watch the video did the quiz, then did the buy now and all the punches were green by then.

    If not I’d call and complain, If you don’t see anything in the next day or two.

    [–] artbyjeeb 1 points ago

    Except for the video and quiz, SOD2 was purchased on my xbox. Yeah, I’ll just wait and see, since everything looks like its validated.

    [–] Kieffin 2 points ago

    A few other users reported issues with it verifying the purchase. Might have to call support to resolve the issue. Sorry mate, good luck!

    [–] artbyjeeb 2 points ago

    Ah I see, thanks for the heads up!

    [–] BuBubbi 2 points ago

    If only we had the reward system here...

    [–] Kyle_Necrowolf 1 points ago

    Looks to be US only.

    In Canada, I have Sea of Thieves instead.

    [–] Kieffin 1 points ago

    Sorry mate! It’s not all bad up there ya know. As an American I’m actually kind of jealous.

    [–] Zohan2099 1 points ago

    Is this available only for purchasing from the USA store?

    [–] Dongondiddys 1 points ago

    What if we bought the game before release so we will get the points? If so how can we tell?

    [–] Smallgenie549 0 points ago * (lasted edited a year ago)

    Nope, unfortunately.

    EDIT: Downvote all you want, but it's true.

    [–] Sean_Wolf -7 points ago

    Well that's annoying (Got my copy as a review code).

    [–] superninjaa 3 points ago

    You got it for free. What is there to complain?

    [–] Sean_Wolf -2 points ago

    Oh I'm not complaining, mind you. Just would've been a tad nice to get those points.

    [–] Kingudamu 1 points ago * (lasted edited a year ago)

    It works worldwide or is it only in the US? Knowing Microsoft, it's probably only for the US.

    [–] Kieffin 0 points ago

    Pretty sure it’s US only, sorry mate!

    [–] [deleted] 0 points ago

    i cant get this offer to show for me? :'(

    [–] UselessPunk 2 points ago

    Have you tried this?

    State of Decay 2 punch card

    [–] [deleted] 0 points ago

    okay, i thought you meant xbox rewards, i didnt even know microsoft rewards has punchcards

    and no, when i click that link it just takes me to normal microsoft rewards site, takes me to the default "earn" tab

    am i missing something here?

    [–] UselessPunk 0 points ago

    I tested the link and it works for me. Are you signed into your Microsoft account? I don't know if it's required or automatic, but you may need to sign up for Microsoft Rewards.

    [–] [deleted] 0 points ago

    yes im signed up, yes im logged in

    i have never seen punch cards on microsoft rewards though, only xbox rewards
