Microsoft is giving away free Xbox gift cards again

Check your Xbox messages, people! Microsoft is once again giving out free Xbox gift cards that can be used to purchase games, add-ons, movies, and apps on the Microsoft Store.

We are seeing reports from across the internet that Microsoft is depositing $5 gift cards (and in some cases $10!) in users’ accounts. As far as we can tell, it only seems to be those located in the US, UK, and some EU countries who are getting the freebie.

Free Xbox store credit is landing in users accounts

For the lucky few that have been blessed by Microsoft and received an Xbox gift card, you have up until June 30th to use it, which is about a month from now. As noted in the message above, you can use it on games, add-ons, movies, and apps on the Microsoft Store.

If you’re interested in picking up a game, you should check out the latest Xbox sale — why not treat yourself and buy five copies of Agony? Go on; you deserve it.

At the moment, we’re not sure who is getting these Xbox gift cards. Usually, those who don’t tend to spend much on the Xbox Store are given them from what we’ve found in the past. Other than the US and the UK, we’re also not sure which regions Microsoft is dishing them out in.

Did you receive a free Xbox gift card? If you did, let us and the community know how much you were given and what country you’re from.
