I recently purchased a 12+2 month X Box Live gold card which I redeemed as soon as I received it on Friday 17th August. The extra 14 months were added to my Live account successfully. However, when I log into X Box Live Rewards I don't see any changes to my points balance and there isn't anything in the pending points section either. Yet I notice that extending membership by 12 months is supposed to be worth at least 200 points. I spoke to a telephone advisor but was told that I may not have allowed enough time for changes to be reflected in X Box Live Rewards.
Could anyone else (e.g. who has purchased extra gold membership) advise me on how long it normally takes for X Box Live Rewards to show the points as pending?
I also recently purchased a new X Box 360 S console (ordered 10th August) to replace my 5 year old, tired (and very noisy) 360 Core. Along with this I purchased an official data transfer cable and WiFi N adaptor so I could relocate the old X Box 360. The new console has been registered with Microsoft (https://myservice.xbox.com/en-GB/Pages/Welcome.aspx) I was just wondering if the purchase and registration of a new console is rewarded with any bonus points? It should be I would have thought, is quite a significant outlay afterall, in the last month alone I must have spent over £200 on Microsoft kit! Surely i should be getting some bonus points for it?
