Hello Giantbomb.

I recently returned from a vacation to the States, and bought 3 MS Points cards while I was over there. However, I was dumb enough not to read the back of the card. Basically the cards won't work for me.

So, I thought why not give them away to 3 lucky American community members of this fine site. Just in time for Summer of Arcade as well!

If you want a chance to win one of these cards here's what you have to do:

1. Be American / Have an US-region Xbox Profile (Please don't apply if you're not because the card won't work)

2. Post in this thread before Monday August 1st 2011 1pm PDT. (Used to be the 2nd)

I'll pick 3 of you by random somehow and PM you the code.

Good luck!


I use http://www.random.org/ to generate 3 random numbers between 1 and 182. Counting the opening post as 1 and so forth.

The three lucky numbers are:




Meaning the winners are:




Congratulations to the winners! And thanks everyone for playing.

Wow, sucks that you can't use them, dude. Are they more expensive where you live that caused you to buy these in the States? But yes, I'd love to be in the running for these points. Thanks for this.

I didn't know points cards were region-locked. Seems like a strange design choice.

Anyway, I'd love to pick up Bastion if I win.
