O Microsoft Rewards starts working in June, so the old Xbox Live Rewards will be replaced by this new nomenclature. For those unfamiliar, Xbox Live Rewards is a rewards program that started to work in December 2022, at the time the system did not have so many users, it was a mix of complaints and satisfaction, but the program underwent changes and became very interesting over time.
O Rewards consists of exchanging points, as if they were miles, add and for each a certain amount of points you can request a withdrawal, usually it happens in the middle and end of the month, if you add 5000 points it is automatically exchanged for local currency, during the period of deposit, or when requesting the withdrawal.
The last big news was the gems of the MyVIP section, when completing certain missions the player could request the gems, and exchange them for prizes from the vault, there are numerous prizes that are available according to your region and have limited stock.
