I know the title sounds too good to be true but trust me when I say that you can get XBox Live Gold codes for free. And I am not talking about some shady business where you are asked to put in tons of information in a survey, only to find out that it was all a scam. You will find a lot of videos of YouTube, telling you to go to some unknown website, fill up the survey form to get free gift cards. In reality, they are all scams run by marketers. Today I will show you a legal method you can use to get XBox Live Gold for free without survey. I have been using this method for quite a while now and it has never failed me.
Get XBOX Live Gold for free No Survey
Many of the XBox Players are not aware about a program called Microsoft Rewards program. Just in case if you don’t know, XBox is a Microsoft product and they want to keep you in their eco-system. Especially if you are from a developed country. That is because if you will keep using your Xbox, they can keep making money by selling games to you and your friends.
This is why Microsoft launched a reward points system. To enter in this program and start earning the points, all you need to do is the following.
- Make sure that you have a Microsoft account. If you have an Xbox, you should use that same account on the Microsoft website.
- You should also be physically in one of the very few supported countries. The list includes USA, UK, Canada, Sweden, Germany, Australia and some other countries. To find out, just open this link and if your country is supported, they will take you to the rewards dashboard’s.
- The last and the most important thing is that you should have the Microsoft Edge browser on your phone and computer. This method only works on the Microsoft Edge.
How to register for Microsoft Rewards Program
- First of all, open this link on your computer or on your phone browser and you will be asked to login to your Microsoft account. If you see a page which says that your country is not supported, unfortunately you can’t get free Xbox live gold gift cards.
- Use your XBox login and password to enter the Xbox rewards program. There is no special registration is required. All you need to do is login and it will get enabled.
- Once you are on the rewards dashboard, you will get a bunch of different tasks that you will need to do.
Why is Microsoft giving points for free?
Microsoft is a big company and they make money by selling different products to their customers. For example, XBox One is a product that they are selling and to keep the program live, they have to keep partnering with different game developers. All this research, development and marketing costs a lot of money. Microsoft decided to launch a subscription service called XBox Live Gold. All the Xbox players now have to buy this service as well if they want to play with their friends.
This decision was not well received by the Xbox one community, and rightfully so. In order to keep the Xbox one players in their eco-system, they decided to announce this rewards program. This gives Xbox one games a way to enjoy their Xbox without paying for the Xbox live gold. And Microsoft got users for their Bing search and Edge browser.
Just to clarify, Microsoft Rewards Program has XBox Live Gold 12 Months card for 29000 points. And If you keep earning reward points by using it for 10 minutes daily, you can earn 29000+ points in 2 months. So in other words, you are giving 10 minutes of your time every day for 2 months and you get 1 year XBox Live Gold for free.
Not only that, if you continue earning points daily, you can get more gift cards that you can sell and make some extra change. There are Facebook groups, Reddit subreddits made for these kinds trades.
Why only selected countries?
Many of you might be thinking that why Microsoft doesn’t allow this program in all countries? Honestly, I don’t think it is fair to do that but it is what it is. Maybe their strategy is to provide free gift points to developed countries so players will spend more money on buying games.
What you should & should not do
Try your best to earn all of the available points daily. If you can build a streak of some days, Microsoft Rewards Program will reward you with some bonus points every now and then.
As I mentioned earlier, this program is available in selective countries and you should not use it if you are not in one of these countries. Yes, you can access the rewards dashboard by using a VPN and start earning the points but this is nothing but waste of time. Because when you will redeem the points for XBox Live Gold, Microsoft will ask you to verify your identity by providing your phone number.
Even if you are from a supported country, I would recommend that you do not use a VPN. Most of the times you can earn extra points if you access the dashboard from different IP addresses. Because different countries have different tasks. But this is against the Microsoft Rewards Program policy and it will lead to account ban.
Always complete the tasks with good intentions. What do I mean by this? Most of the points that you will earn are going to come from performing bing searches. If you will perform the searches just for the sake of the points, bing will identify a pattern in your searches and your account can get flagged.
Do not use any scripts of macros. Some of the users who know some coding will be inclined towards using a macro or script to automate the process. This is strictly against the Microsoft Rewards Program policy and it will get your account banned.
