Microsoft Reward Scheme Game Active Until May 15th
Think you're a bit of a know-it-all, eh? Know a bit about ODST and Gears Of War, do ya? Well, in which case, why not put your skills to good use with Microsoft's IQ Trivia Challenge? This new rewards program gives you the chance to win instant Microsoft Points prizes for answering some fairly simple questions - with a jackpot of 100,000 MSP up for grabs. More details below.
Once you've linked your Xbox Live account with the Microsoft Rewards Program (you can do so here), you'll be able to play a daily quiz about Gears Of War, Call Of Duty, Halo: ODST and other popular gaming franchises. Once the accounts are synced, you'll be in the running for an instant points payout of 100-1000 Microsoft points and a daily jackpot of 100,000. Check out the trivia quiz here.
There's technically nothing stopping you from Googling the answers... except that your response times are logged and taken into account. Don't expect to win big if you take ages labouring over the responses.
The promotion will last until May 15th.
If you have an Xbox Live account, it's well worth joining the Microsoft Rewards Program regardless of whether or not you plan on participating in the competition. You'll be granted free Microsoft Points for fairly simple tasks (usually involving a cynical net loss of money, such as renewing your Xbox Live Gold membership) - and new members will receive bonuses for purchasing titles and films from the Xbox Live Marketplace.
