promotion: xbox live refer a friend and bing rewards signup
dates: sometime in february and may
promo items: the maw, 400 microsoft points, 200 microsoft points
well my brother used his account scaredfearles to refer me to live back in february. although i never got an email or anything saying that he refered me and he never got an email either, even though i went gold. not to mention we didnt get our microsoft points. i tried it again about a week or 2 ago back in may on my friends account unseeingorange. he went gold and i havent recieved an email or anything so i can get the maw(which is what it promised to give me if i refered him and he went gold which he did)
i also tried out the promo i got in an email telling me that if i signed up for bing rewards i would get 200 microsoft points. im pretty sure it said it would send them to me in an email by june 6th or so (im not sure when exactly) and i havent gotten them yet
any help would be nice because i havent received word on any of those promotions since i tried them
Hi! The rewards for trying Bing will be distributed 8 weeks from the end of the promotion, so there's still a bit to wait. :)
Now, as far as the Refer-a-friend promo, did you sign up via the email provided to you? Also, could you confirm if your friend signed up via that email? Thanks! :)

well my brother used his account to refer me to gold. he got a couple emails regarding referring people but they didnt really require any actual signing up. so when he went to refer me he just went straight to the website xbox.promo.eprize.com/referafriend to do so. it even said that the referrals were complete. i did the same thing when i referred my friend. i went straight to the website and typed in the name with my windows ID logged in, however i didnt get any email confirmation saying i had done so. neither did my friend. he never got the email to refer people becuse he wasnt the one doing the referring, i was referring him to xbl
Alright, and just to make sure, both of you were over the age of 18, and located in the US?
yeah, me my friend and my brother all are over 18 and in the US. thank you for your help by the way :)
Okay, let me take a look into this issue and get back to you. :)
Thanks I really appreciate it! :)
Sorry for the double post but its been about 3 days now and i haven't heard anything from you guys regarding this situation.
Totally understandable! Sorry for the late response.
Just to clarify, since I'm having trouble finding the correct info for you - when your brother referred you, did you click on a link in the mail, and sign up right then? Or at another time?
Well when he referred me I didn't receive any email. However he used the advertisement link provided from HIS email to actually refer me. Same with my friend. I never received any actual confirmation that his account referred me. I even waited three days and nothing happened. So i simply upgraded my account. The link in his email led him directly to the refer a friend website, Where he typed in my gamertag and hit refer.
In order for the referral to be counted, you would have needed the email with a link that you would click. Unfortunately, since it sounds like you didn't get the email, the referral didn't go through.
