I just did this and it works flawlessly. Follow this link http://expertzone.microsoft.com/Home.aspx and register. Go to the "Xbox One Assessment". Don't bother looking over the review materials, you have four tries to get 80%. I took it twice, first time got 65%, next try got 85% (questions do change a bit). You must work in retail and provide a copy of your Pay Stub before you can take the test. Once you take it, you'll get the promo code on the page of the test.

Questions? YMMV depending on the store you work at.

Second note: Microsoft is only giving out 30,000 of these. Not sure how many have already been given out but it's been running since 10/7/13. Again, YMMV.
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

After you've finished the test, try this:

While in the expert zone site, click "contests" at the top of the page, then hit the X-box "go to program" link.

Code will be at the bottom of the page.

Looks like a YMMV thing depending on the store you wark at.

Bummer. May not be one of the big sellers. I work at Sears and worked fine for me.

Not that I know of. They need a copy of your pay stub, they verify it then they give you access. Has to have your name (with matching information when you registered), store name and store #, all given when you register on site.

You think a pay stub from earlier this year works. I usually shred them.

Probably. I used one from a couple weeks ago.

I wouldn't think they're "selling" your info. Even if they are, what could they possibly do with your employer info?

Same thing happened to me. Nothing about verifying with a paystub or a redeemable code for Xbox Gold
