Information about Reward Points:

2. Points. Except for sharing points within your Microsoft family (limits may apply) or donating your points to a nonprofit organization listed in the redemption center, you cannot transfer points. Points are not your personal property, and you may not obtain any cash or money in exchange for them. Points are awarded to you on a promotional basis. You cannot purchase points. Microsoft may limit the quantity of points or Rewards per person, per household, or over a set period (e.g., a day) provided that you are not disadvantaged in breach of good faith. You may redeem no more than 550,000 points per calendar year in the Program. Points earned in the Program are not valid in, and may not be used in combination with, any other program offered by Microsoft or third parties. Unredeemed points expire if you do not earn or redeem any points for 18 months.

This will expire before Xbox series x comes out though
This is pretty much the biggest discount they do now. They used to do 30% but i haven't seen that in probably close to two years.
Long post...link gets lost in OP from deal editing...

Getting a lot of points easily:

bing.com/news on PC. Simply go here, then click on each link on the left. Each click is 5 points. You can get the max searches of 150 points per day in under a minute. Use Microsoft Edge to get 20 extra per day.
Completing "Daily set" on Bing mobile app. There are three clickable links from the app including one search, one quiz, and one survey. When you string multiple days in a row, you bonus points. This gets 30 to 60 points daily.
Completing news story searches on Bing mobile app. On the "Earn" section, click on the mobile icon and then click on all the news stories until you get the max. This takes the longest out of all of these three. 100 to 200 points daily depending on bonuses.

Doing this alone can get you about 10,000 points a month. Getting points from Rewards app on Xbox and completing Quests and Microsoft Rewards emails gets you more. Xbox Rewards app has the least points per time spent.

Also, here are more details about the rewards and history.

The 12 month Xbox live rewards are typically only available when it is a "Hot Deal". However, they haven't been available since last July.
When redeeming for Xbox or Microsoft gift cards, they are applied to your account and expire within 90 days. Each reward redeemed has a specific expire date 90 days from applying.
When redeeming for Game Pass or Xbox live month rewards, the codes are sent for redemption and not automatically applied to account.
Below is a history of the recent "Hot Deals" (excluding dumb stuff like Skype that nobody cares about).

May 2020 - 3 Month Game Pass for 24,500 pts
March 2020 - $5 Microsoft GC for 4,000 pts (same as now)

When I redeem this, will the $5 be automatically added to that same account OR will I get a code to be redeemed and I can redeem it to any account I want? "the digital code is automatically applied to your account" sounds like the former, but just double checking.

On a tangent - "Xbox Game Pass for PC" 1 month for 7000 points (== $7)?? That's $2 more than retail price!

I've been hoarding points for months and have never cashed out before. Is this the time to do it? Good redemption values?

Unless you want to use your points for XBL or gamepass instead yes this is the best deal that comes around.

Can I use the GC and use it to purchase games from other region online store? Or I have to purchase region specific GC?

That's the tricky part. I'm assuming you would be able to preorder the Xbox Series X within the next 3 months. With that being the case, you can use the gift card $$ to lower the preorder price, but if they expire before it's out would that be a huge waste?

They formerly gave a code that could be redeemed, but they no longer do that. I asked customer service a while back and they confirmed. They told me there is no way to use your points to get a reward for a different account. (I wanted to use my points to get my daughter Minecraft for her laptop but couldn't do it unless I used my account.)

The problem with preordering is that they only charge the point or gift card balance before it ships. That's what sucks.

Got excited when I got the notification for Rewards. Then saw it wasn't for Live. My year expires tomorrow. I'll have to bite the bullet and redeem some points for 3 months and hope they run another special deal on Live soon
