Do you want 100 free MS points? (Update: points being sent out!)

Go here.

Design a car.

Fill out the information at the end. It can be bogus, but the email must be real for you to recieve the redeem code.

MAKE SURE YOU CHECK THE BOX THAT SAYS 'YES I WOULD LIKE TO RECIEVE MS POINTS'

Then submit.

you'll get 100 free MS points off the bat, plus more for coming back each day and painting a new car, ranking cars and getting yours ranked.

It caps out at giving you 2,000 MSPoints and lasts for six weeks.

What you could get with this:

- Halo 3 Legendary maps (only 600 msp!)
- ROCK BAND SONGS
- TMNT 1988 (only 400msp!)
- ROCK BAND SONGS

I just did it and recieved the code a few minutes later for 100 msp.


SPECIAL NOTE: The email I recieve states that the points expire on February 17th, 2009. That means you cannot hoard these specific points, you must spend them or lose them by the date specified.

SPECIAL NOTE 2: Due to fuckers at NeoFAG/CAG/whatever exploiting the contest, you can't get your 2000 msp right away. You can earn up to 2000, but they're going to wait until september 19th to send you the code. So you can still get the points, you just have to be patient. But still, 100 MSP is enough for a RB song or maybe one of those gamerpics/themes you didn't really want to spend money on? Anyway, make sure you actually paint your cars, as I assume they're actually verifying entries. I'm personally flagging all blank cars.

    Make a US account and redeem the codes on that. Content you buy gets unlocked to the Xbox's serial #.

    Sweet, I just entered my ex-girlfriend's address, along with the hotmail address associated with my Live account. I can has points!

    There will be many, many half-assed entries from me in the days to come. In fact, I think we should have our own private contest to see who can design the ugliest car.

    It appears you can only redeem 100 points (daily, I'm assuming), even if you get another code somehow...

    Basically, using multiple emails is fruitless. Multiple Live accounts would work, but you can't transfer points, so it's not as awesome.

    Still, great find, FyreWullf.

    I did this the other day, and it won't let me do it again today. When I go to redeem them with my Windows Live account or whatever, it says "You have already redeemed the maximum number of coupons allowed for this promotion."

    100 points is good, though.

    You could get multiple accounts points and buy stuff that way.

    And done. +100 MS Points.

    What about the next go-round...is it as simple as log in, paint a car, and wait for the e-mail?

    edit: Just read two posts up. Seemed way too easy to work everyday.

    Did you make a new email and try to turn in that code, or log back in with the email/password you did the first time and painted another car? Because their rules specify a 2000 point cap.

    Omg. So awesome and easy. I just got my 100 MS points in the email. A few more and I can get those Forza car packs I've always wanted too.

    I gotta hide this from my wife though. She might make me get her Zuma.

    The second one. Have you done it more than once with the same email?

    You have to rate cars to recieve points aswell, it seems.

    So it's not that easy, you have to put a bit of effort into it.

    About five minutes for 100 points worth of effort, at least.

    I'm shocked, but this actually seems to be legitimate. Go Microsoft & basically free points. Now the only question I have to ask myself is whether I should save these for Galaga Legions & Geo Wars 2 or spend them on current stuff?

    From what I understand Neogaf, Slickdeals, Redflagdeals and Cheap Ass Gamers + god knows how many other forums exploited the shit out of this with some folks getting literally thousands of points.

    I've heard the giveaway is either dead now, or has been changed so that you can only redeem one code.

    I started out at 100msp according to the site, now I'm up to 200msp but I've only gotten the initial 100msp code.

    Seriously though, I always hate how people abuse contests.

    Yeah the internet is fucking this gold mine for all it's worth

    just check out the showroom, 90% of the cars are the default paintjob.

    Alright, I've figured out what the deal is.

    They are no longer immediately sending out anything past the initial 100msp due to internet rapage. They are going to send the code for the last 1900 MSP on september 19th or thereabouts.

    So you'll get points, but not right now. So make sure your cars actually have a paintjob, as I imagine this is so they can verify all entries as non-default paintjobs (contest ends late august)

    Yeah, I just entered a second car and got the "You have maxed out your points for this promotion" screen.

    I got my 100 though, so Im happy.

    Do I get 50 by rating them or something?

    Something like that. You're allowed 20 ratings per day but I got 50 after rating 3 or so.

    Don't know where I got my first 50 extra from..

    Just blindly put in email/password combinations until you log in? I think they only have password recovery.
