Your Xbox 360 Achievements Might Save You Money

Posted on September 28, 2012 AT 01:54pm

For many of us, getting achievements for performing certain tasks in games feels rewarding on its own. However, if you’re an Xbox Live user, those achievements might be coming with a few extra perks.

The new rewards system is based on your Gamerscore. If you have between 3,000 and 9,999 points, you can get a special gift for your birthday (not a diamond pony, though). For the next tier of points (10,000 – 24,999), you can also get a 1% rebate on some XBL purchases. And for those dedicated gamers with over 25,000 points, that rebate increases to 2%.

This rebate can be used for most purchases, with the exception of Microsoft Points and XBL memberships. If you want in on special birthday gifts and rebates, then click this link to sign up.
