Xbox player uses free store credit to get 3 AAA open-world bangers

Xbox player uses free store credit to get 3 AAA open-world bangers

One Xbox player is advising users to check their personalised deals, after nabbing three great games for bargain prices.

If you’re a savvy Microsoft Rewards points collector, you’re going to want to make note of this. Don’t forget to check the Microsoft Store’s ‘Just For You’ deals because one Xbox player has just bagged three open-world bangers for a bargain price.

Microsoft Rewards points have become pretty topical this week. Just a few days ago, Microsoft revealed the Xbox Mastercard in a new team-up with Barclays Bank. The Mastercard allows users to earn points on everyday purchases. If you use the card to buy Microsoft products, make streaming service purchases, or order via dining delivery services, you’ll earn three to five times as many points. The introduction of the Xbox Mastercard comes as the Microsoft Rewards app is ending its handy punch card, which allows players to accumulate points via simple tasks like regularly logging in. If you do currently have a juicy number of points sitting in your account though, you may want to wander over to the Microsoft Store.

Starfield is out now. Take a look at our video review below.

Reddit user WhoDaHellAreU took to the site to share a stellar deal they bagged. With $10 store credit in their wallet, the user headed on over to the Microsoft Store where they got Assassin’s Creed Origins Deluxe Edition, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Deluxe Edition and Watch Dogs 2 Deluxe Edition for the collective bargain price of $11.50.

How do I get this deal, I hear ye ask? Well, it’s not totally straightforward. The ‘Just For You’ deals are, clearly, tailored to you. The games you see will reflect what the Microsoft Store thinks you’re interested in - and discounts will vary too. This user was able to nab 93% to 97% discounts on each game. As these are all Deluxe Editions, it could be the case that the user owned the game’s partially, bringing the price somewhat down.

Still, it’s a helpful reminder that you should always check your personalised deals, because sometimes there are some incredible offers to be had. They do appear sporadically though. “I’ve only ever had this once in the past year. Got Ghost Recon Breakpoint Deluxe Edition for £5.99,” said Adg273. “That's lucky. My ‘Just For You’ is 100% [off] a battle pass for a game that I've never played, Apex Legends, and I don’t have any intention [to].” It’s the pick of the draw, as they say.
