Xbox Live Rewards is changing the meta-game by adding rebates

Posted on September 28, 2012 - 2:00pm by Sean Hinz

The Xbox Live Gamerscore has been the ultimate ePenis since its inception back in 2005. Now it looks like all those who’ve been grinding Achievement Points will finally be seeing a pay off. Subscribers will not only receive discounts on content, but they are also assigned a Xbox Live Rewards rank (rank title in parenthesis).

Gold subscribers who have a Gamerscore of 25,000 (Legend) or more will receive 2% back on all purchase on Xbox Live. Users with a Gamerscore between 10,000 and 25,000 (Champion) will receive a 1% rebate. And anyone who has a score over 3,000 (Contender) will receive a “special gift” on their birthday. That gift has an approximate retail value of $.25.

In order for this to happen though, you must not only be a Gold Member, but you must also enroll in Xbox Live Rewards. If you aren’t, click through to sign up. Are all you Achievement Hunters excited by this news? Or do you think the rebates should even greater as users approach Gamerscores of 35K, 50K, or even 100K?
