Did Microsoft send you a gift card? Check your email
Late yesterday, Microsoft launched a promotion that emails gift cards for the Microsoft Store to seemingly random users. Do you have one?
The promotion was spotted by the Wario64 Twitter account and later confirmed to be real by the Microsoft Store Twitter account according to The Verge. The gift cards offered can be worth between $10 and $100, but the only way to know if you have one is to check your email. Maybe you have more than one email address known to Microsoft, but you always forget to verify it? Check that one out too!
The Microsoft Store currently offers a number of offers to redeem the gift card. They include up to $200 off a Surface Laptop Go, $400 off the Surface Pro 7, $500 off Gaming PCs and $20 off Xbox and PC accessories Kingston HyperX just to name a few. With Microsoft’s announcement giving free anime with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, you can also use a free gift card to pay for the subscription.
