Halo 5

Microsoft is aiming to give Xbox One gamers some extra credit to use for buying games, movies or TV shows for the console. The company has just launched a new promotion that will give members of its free Xbox Live Rewards program up to 60,000 extra points, a $60 value.

Obviously, you have to sign up for Xbox Live Rewards first. Microsoft says:

"Then, go to the Xbox Store on your Xbox One or on the Web and buy or pre-order one of these exclusive, digital games: Halo 5: Guardians, Gears of War: Ultimate Edition, Forza Motorsport 6, Rise of the Tomb Raider, or Rare Replay. You'll earn between 3,000 and 6,000 rewards credits for each of the five titles you purchase up to 25,000 rewards credits!

"As an added bonus: if you buy all five titles, you'll get an additional 35,000 Rewards Credits for a total of 60,000 rewards credits (a $60 value)! These reward credits get converted into your local currency and are deposited to your Microsoft account where you can use them to enjoy more blockbuster digital games, game add-ons, or the latest movies & TV shows."

This special promotion ends on January 7, 2016. People who have already pre-ordered or bought one or more games before October 27 won't get the individual credits for each game. However, Microsoft says that anyone who buys all five games between June 16 and January 7 will still get the bonus credit of 35,000 points.
