Deal DetailsLast Edited by mlacey3 April 21, 2015 at 12:12 PM
I've bought lots of Microsoft points at a discount when I didn't need them because of SD posts. Microsoft converted these points to a cash value when they moved from the point system to the dollar system. The tricky thing here is they converted them as a promotional credit. I remember seeing something about that but I couldn't remember when they expire so I went to Microsoft's site. That promotional credit expires on June 1st 2015.
Here is the link:
If you are logged into your account there is a link on the page to the "Microsoft account Transactions page" which will show your balance. Mine shows $66.01 and since I've never bought Microsoft dollars (only points) I know that is my "promotional credit". That means if I don't spend $66 on XBL in the next 5 weeks that money will be gone/stolen by Microsoft.
My advice to you is if you bought Microsoft points cards and you haven't spent all that money yet start shopping around for something you want to spend it on. You may now proceed with your TD because I posted this in the Hot Deals section.
Make sure to check your balance at the following link;
Click on Payment Options > Microsoft Account (should list your $ amount).
Originally on Xbox.com it didn't show mine as expiring. But that page does show that it's promotional credit expiring.

I checked last month the link to find out if their was expiration date next to ms money. And their was no expiration date. I got the expiration email a few days ago. I called CS and was informed it was a mistake and she sent me email saying that. I then called MS again and asked to speak to manager and he told me my money would expire in 30 days.
So OLD way of checking is NOT right. Even if it shows your money is not expiring it is. Do NOT trust what CS tells you when you call them. I was told my MS money in my account was NOT expiring. So DO NOT TRUST CS. And if it hasn't happened to you YET, beware, it could come for YOU NEXT MONTH.
