    • Hey, sorry I was unclear about that and thank you for pointing it out! I will do my best to make sure future articles are better 😉
      Yes, Jack is correct. you must buy $20 of items off the list in this post to receive your $5. Again, thank you for reading and your feedback! 🙂

        It’s no problem. I thought that’s how it was supposed to be set up, since that is how they have done it in the past.
        Thanks for posting the info and all the eligible stuff.

        Also Thanks to Jack. 🙂

    Hi, Jed was a little bit unclear about that. Just to clarify, the offer is if you spend 1600MSP on Microsoft Game Studios content (be it XBLA DLC or Avatar items) then you get 400MSP back. Helpfully, Jed has included a list of the content eligible for this deal.

    However, before you start spending you have to make sure you download the special Gamer picture linked with the offer.
