Microsoft to unveil next generation of Xbox Live Rewards on

Nice to know they aren't taking the chance to scrap the Rewards since I've had about 3,000 points back so far. The recent addition of cash back on purchases depending on your gamerscore was particularly nice.

3000? I've earned about 100. But then I forget to do stuff and things.

Think i've made about 800 points in a year. This is helped in part by the cash back reward for all the marketplace content i've purchased in various sales. Can't complain at 800 free points for doing not much at all. The rewards programme has been great so far. There's certainly improvements that could be made but coupled with the free games for Gold subscribers I'm looking forward to what they come back with

I've been a member since it launched. All those 20 points a month for surveys add up. Throw in 200 points a year for renewing Gold and it soon adds up. And as I said now they're giving me cash back on XBL purchases, and the increased quality in XBLA games, it's really started to climb.

I joined the Rewards programme last September, and my birthday's in August. That means that I'll have to wait another year to find out what my 'special gift during my birthday month' will be. :(
