    The gift is said to be worth 25 cents so I'm guessing it is a small avatar item, wallpaper or theme.
    Also you can get VIP status as well which will gain you discounts and free items.
    Also you need a gold membership to access these rewards.
    This offer may not be available in your region.

    Hopefully the start of something good/achievements being less of a negative in my eyes.

    Sign up now it is valid but maybe not in your region.
    Well there is going to be a offer October.

    During the month of October, spend 2,000 Microsoft Points or more on eligible horror themed Xbox LIVE Marketplace items and get 300 Microsoft Points back. Purchase(s) must occur between October 1, 2012 and October 31, 2012 and promotions like a Halo 4 avatar item for watching enough election ads.

    Ive been wondering when they would start this. It seems like this should have been implemented long long ago, but wherever. Better late than never, I guess.

    Some things you should know before deciding to jump onboard:
    80 MSP = 10 USD and the limit is 30,000 MSP = 375 USD. 375 USD * 2% = 7.5 USD. The price for a Gold membership is 5 USD a month, so the maximum you can get in rebates would only be 2.5 USD over what you're spending a month. Since the 30,000 MSP cap appears to be for the entire offer period (not just per month, presumably) this seems like a pretty bad deal unless you were planning on getting a Gold membership anyway.

    Edit: Forgot to do last calculation.

    Here's what I found at the bottom of a page while signing up. This should clear any and all confusion.

    "Open to residents of the 50 United States (including District of Columbia), United Kingdom, Canada, Mexico, France, Germany, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, Singapore, Hong Kong, Japan, Italy, and Spain, 13 years and older."

    I think your off a bit. 30,000 points is the cap of how much you can earn so you earn bonus for the first 3 million points or 1.5 million you use aka 37,500USD or 18,750USD and lets be honest who the hell would spend 3 million points or 1.5 million.

    Ah, that makes much more sense. Thanks for the clarification.
