So I just turned on my Xbox 360 to play some Halo. And guess what I saw



EDIT

Looks like its only for selective people. Though I already have Xbox One, so I don't know if this is just a random give away to random people? And I am in Canada.



You can pretty much buy any upcoming games free of cost.

lock it if sold out

my first thread on GAF. So cut me some slack people

Looks like it's saying "Buy and Xbox One, then get a $75 code." Not "Get $75 off an Xbox One."

If you can stack it with other promos, Titanfall is $20 at Best Buy this week when purchased with an XB1. If nothing else, you can flip that for a $20 profit.

Yup, sure is. Maybe I should plug my 360 into my router and see if I get the deal, even if I was going to wait for a redesigned slimmer model.

Well yeah, did people really think it's $75 off an Xbox One? The thread title says online credit.

There's way too many reasons why your first thread sucks. For starters, try taking the picture without flash next time!

Ha ha, just kidding. Congrats on a great first thread! A $325 One is pretty tempting, but I have a decent PC rig and a Wii U to hold me over for a while. (Not to mention PS360 backlog). Wondering what kinds of deals Microsoft is going to push in the next several months, potentially culminating in some killer, irresistible Black Friday stuff.

It says purchase from any retailer to receive code.

So it looks like it's a promotion that anyone can get in on?

Isn't $75 is like "a lot" to give to anyone with X360 and didn't purchase XBO? (We're talking tens of millions here)

I was going to take a pic without a flash, but I was going to end up editing the pic to remove my gametag. Then I thought, the flash already did that for me lol. So I didn't retake.

Saw it too on my 360. I'm guessing pretty much everyone is eligible since I've had my 360 for less than 6 months. Already have an Xbox one though.

$75 credit is not a lot. Most people are not upgrading with $75 credit

I assume this offer doesn't have an expiration date, so you can use it anytime this year. By Fall, many people will use that.

So uh I wonder if people who purchased it prior to this could get in on it?

From the Xbox Forums

I logged onto my xbox 360, and saw a large ad offering me a 75$ xbox promotional code with the purchase of an xbox one. I already had purchased an xbox one in the first week of release. so I went on the xbox support chat to inquire about getting the promo code for my xbox one. they assured me it was an option and gave me customer supports number. so I called them and after 45 mins on hold and being shuffled around, I was told to post in xbox rewards forum to be given a code. and then now they've told me to post in this forum.

No guarantees but probably worth a shot. Does kind of sound like he's being shunted around to hopefully stop him from getting it but it's $75...

Within first year of its release? no way. They might throw in a free copy of a latest game. That's still different than giving out 75$ to buy anything on marketplace.

That's if it lasts. It looks like it would print on the receipt or some such. I don't think it'll be in effect during Black Friday.

That's rather incredible that they would make good on that from a system purchased that long ago. I wonder just how busy their support lines are going to be tomorrow once this news starts to spread.

Is there anywhere to find more info about this deal? Going to the link in that pic just leads to the generic Xbox One info page on xbox.com.

It must be a new offer that they haven't gotten around to explaining yet.

It is for existing XBL Gold customers. MS is sending it to certain group of existing customers. This is not for every one.

Got it in one.

Otherwise, I bet if they see a nice uptick, they'll expand it to everybody. It's easy to just have the code print out on the receipt or send it via email.
