Xbox gamers are slowly coming to terms with the Microsoft Rewards app termination, which will take place on 15 April.

Microsoft Rewards was a way players could earn points through both playing games as well as purchasing them, which could then be converted into a variety of prizes like Xbox gift cards and more.

Over time though the rewards service has seen a dip in quality, offering less chances to earn points and culminating in the news that it’ll soon be terminated in favour of another application or points system.

At the time of writing, you can also earn points through the Xbox Game Pass hub on consoles, which’ll net you points just for playing games available on the subscription service, as well as completing some challenges.

While this would be a poor replacement by itself, Xbox has confirmed that the app will be replaced by the Rewards Hub, a more streamlined experience that aims to provide "even more places to earn rewards."

Those who regularly use the app shared their frustration on a Reddit post by odinsknight101, many of whom have quite substantial streaks built up which nets you around 2,500 points every few weeks.

“This is my 250th week streak. Was hoping to make it five years... Oh well, hell of a run," one person said.

“Damn, I will at least get one more 2500 before it goes...I'm just hoping the lack of challenges/quests is because everything is being moved into one area," said another.

“RIP 2500 point bonus. I'll be seriously shocked if that survives the move as that is the last big points reward left since nerfageddon started months ago.”

The Microsoft Rewards app will go offline on 15 April, meaning gamers have less than a month to squeeze as many points of out the current iteration of the app as possible before it's gone for good.
