Xbox MasterCard

Xbox has just recently released their new credit card- their Mastercard. The card has no annual fee and provides players with their best purchases both in-game and in real life. This card is available now as it has been released on September 21st.


After the first purchase with the card, you get a bonus of 5,000 Xbox points. Some of the other rewards include 3 months of game pass ultimate within 180 days of opening an account. You can get 3x points if you use it on streaming platforms and delivery services. You can customize your Xbox card with your nametag, etc. 


Additional benefits include 5x points in eligible Microsoft products. Free access to the FICO credit store. 


The points allow you to buy games without spending money. The points allow you to buy stuff like in-game currencies. You can buy a new controller too. The points allow you to get an Xbox game pass membership.


The Xbox game pass is where at a certain cost, you can get games for free. Based on what stage your game pass is, you can buy games until you reach a limit. You can get hundreds of PC-quality games and have online multiplayer. New games are always added so you can never get bored. There can be exclusive member benefits that come with the game pass. The price is $16.99/mo and this is the most expensive one yet. If you cancel your subscription, all the games that you have bought on the game pass will be playable until you get a cheaper plan or you renew it.


Every 1,000 points is $1. So if you get 100,000 game points, you have $100 with the $100, you can buy in-game items or currency. You can also buy games with the points if you have enough points you can get the basic version or the ultimate version. If buying games isn’t really your thing, you can buy gift cards using those points to spend.
