Users of Xbox 360 can purchase additional content for their console directly from Xbox Live Marketpace. The official currency for purchasing additional content for the Xbox is Microsoft points, which can be bought in the retail stores or with a debit or credit card on Xbox Live.
However, you shouldn’t rush into purchasing because you can take advantage of different promotional offers, as well as offers from survey websites which may actually provide you with free microsoft points. As amazing as it sounds, the opportunity may be too good, but it is also true. Some players also get free points by voluntarily losing games or boosting with competitors. If you are interested in free points (and you should definitely be interested), use your 360 game console to log on to Xbox Live Marketplace and press the buttons of “directional pad” on your controller in order to browse for special offers and available content to be purchased with the Microsoft points. You will notice that there are many special offers which include discounts for some of the older titles, as well as bonuses of Microsoft points with buying a specific title.
For example, there was an offer where you could obtain 1,200 or 400 free points if you purchased Lara Croft, Limbo, Castlevania or Hydro Thunder in a certain period.You should regularly check the offers on the Xbox Live Marketplace for current promotions which often feature free points. You can also create your secondary e-mail account and use it to register in a survey third-party website. Simply follow the required steps of registration and complete the surveys to get free points. The website will provide you with free points for each of the surveys you complete. After that, once you earn at least 200 survey points, you will be able to convert them into Microsoft points.
