    So, I got this deal. I paid £30 for a year of XBL, but the offer states that you get a free arcade game as well. I have found no way to redeem my arcade game. I have tried going into the store and trying to buy a game to see if I get it for free, but that didn't work. I checked my games library and there was nothing new there.
    Anyone know how the offer was supposed to work?
    Is there a chance that I will be E-mailed a code for use in the arcade store?
    Thanks for any help.

    Is this deal from the dashboard or xbox.com?

    Generally the deals state you will get your free points by a certain date, usually a month or two after the deal and they will just show up in your account when you go to purchase something.

    I recall getting a similar deal quite some time ago, only the extra freebie was 800 Microsoft points (which I'd planned to put towards Super Meat Boy or something). Except I never got an email stating that part of the offer, only the discount (20% or so), never got the points, and nothing in my account states I received the offer. Is there any way to verify when this deal was offered, so I can somehow prove that I should be eligible for those points?

    I've got some gold subscription cards and I understand they sometime give you free points if the card has no offer on it for free points on it how would you get the free points ?

    Is there was to claim them retrospectively or in general does anyone know how such offers work ??

    Dammit, I saw the thread title and thought MS was having a sale on XBL subscriptions again, way to get my hopes up.

    If there is no offer on the card then you don't get any free points.

    The last card I had had two codes. One for the 12 months XBL Gold account and one for 800MS points.

    This isn't exactly the same thing you're referencing and I don't know if the program is restricted to certain countries, but if you're a participant in the Xbox Live Rewards program you'll receive points, albeit an extremely modest amount, for activating or renewing a Gold membership.
