Reminder: Prepaid App Card program is now live

Back at the beginning of November, we mentioned how Microsoft was starting a cool new program for those who bought new Windows Phones. Basically, if you bought a Windows Phone between November 2nd and December 31st you qualify for a $25 prepaid app card for the Marketplace.

Well, the day to redeem that offer is now upon us, so you'll want to head to and start entering your info. Seems fairly straight forward with no catches and a great way to get new folks a head start on their new phones ($25 in apps is a lot of apps, if you think about it). And for those of you buying your 2nd Windows Phone, well, consider this a bonus to buy new Xbox LIVE titles and the like.
