Not everyone is getting those free 1K MS points from Xbox Music

The other day we mentioned how the Xbox Music team had sent out emails to current Zune Pass users, detailing what changes were coming down the road. In addition, some of us also received 1000 MS Points that could be used anywhere—videos, movies, music, games, etc.

As it turns out, not everyone received those and that looks to be by design. In a recent tweet by @ZuneSupport notes as much though they did not provide details on criteria e.g. random or long-time user for getting them.


We suppose it’s bad news for those of you who didn’t get them. Out of curiosity, how many of you did get those points? If you received an Xbox Music email, take the poll and let us know.
