Didn't it relaunch a few months ago? I have gotten cashouts a couple of times based on that new system.

They've relaunched the previous relaunch version. Now, to me at least, it really seems that they are far more interested in how much you spend than they are in rewarding you. Don't get me wrong, I understand that they are a business and do not have to offer any kind of rewards. I just find it frustrating that, for instance, the cashback bonus that I had earned in the previous version has been reduced to a lesser amount and will only increase by small increments based upon how many multiples of $150 I spend each year on digital content and said cashback rewards now require a minimum purchase, before taxes each month to qualify. Which means if I purchase content at $9,99, I don't meet the minimum of $10 for cashback....

— What is MyVIP?
A.
MyVIP is an exclusive feature of Xbox Live Rewards that gives Xbox Live Rewards members a certain level of payback for purchases made in the Xbox Store. Unlock your first level of payback by reaching a yearly spend of at least $150, which will earn you a VIP Star. As your VIP Star rank grows, so will your payback percentage. Plus, if you're an Xbox Live Gold member, you'll enjoy double kickback on your purchases.

Please note: Purchase minimums refer to pre-tax totals.

— When will my MyVIP Rewards Credits be deposited into my Microsoft account?
A.
For every $10.00 you spend on qualifying Xbox Store content, you will be eligible for Rewards. The Rewards earned will be calculated at the end of each month, and then will show up on your MyRewards page as Pending in the following month. Then, your Rewards Credits will follow the program's current deposit terms.

— What Xbox Store purchases are eligible for the MyVIP payback?
A.
Eligible content includes: Games on Demand, arcade games, add-ons, movies, TV, Season Passes, avatar items across Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

The following Xbox content is not eligible for the offer: In-game content, themes, Xbox Live and Xbox Music Pass subscriptions, and music.

Anyone else having problems with not getting credit for purchases? I have bought (all digital) Forza Horizon 2, Sunset Overdrive deluxe edition, and the COD and my punchcard is empty Frown

Tends to update a week or two after digital purchase ..on the punch card. Server side it registers on day of purchase just updates slow on the user interface/punch card end.

the one and only major issue i have with them is the inconsistencies in deposit dates they totally miss em or change em out of no where
I appear to have found a propper thread to post in for a question I have about the xbl rewards.
I have noticed they added a my vip star section. Is the only way to earn stars is to pay for content? Does this exclude the free stuff from adding to your stars?
