How to get the Xbox Auto Redeem gift card

Every Xbox gamer would love to get some free store credit, and you might even have it at hand, but you don’t know about it. Well, it turns out there’s a pretty simple trick that can get you there, and it’s all about tweaking one little setting. So, let’s dive into how you can ensure you never miss out on these sweet, sweet freebies.

The secret sauce to this whole operation is the Microsoft Rewards scheme. It’s like a treasure trove for gamers, rewarding you with points for just doing your regular gaming stuff. These points can then be turned into all sorts of goodies, like video games, accessories, and yes, that coveted store credit. Imagine grabbing the latest game release or extending your Xbox Game Pass subscription without spending a dime. Sounds pretty good, right?

Now, here’s what you need to do. Once you’re a part of the Microsoft Rewards program (which is totally free, by the way), all you need to do is sign in with your Microsoft account in the Rewards hub. From there, you can start racking up points by playing on Xbox, PC, or even just by hopping onto the Xbox mobile app.

Earning points is a breeze. Whether you’re diving into games via Xbox Game Pass, buying digital games from the Xbox Marketplace, or completing those Xbox Game Pass Quests, you’re on your way to scoring some rewards. You might even have those points stacked up and don’t even realize it.

By changing one simple setting, you can make sure you automatically redeem your hard-earned points for free store credit. This magical setting, known as Auto redeem, can be activated right in the Rewards app on your Xbox console. Once it’s set, you can sit back and relax, knowing your free credit will pop up around the first day of each new month.

Just as a smart user posted out on Reddit, basically, you snag up those Xbox gift cards by using points from the Microsoft Rewards program.

However, it’s important to note that this feature isn’t available worldwide just yet. Currently, it’s only up and running in the U.S., UK, Germany, France, Canada, Brazil, Mexico, and Australia. So, if you’re gaming in one of these regions, you’re in luck.

In summary, don’t sleep on this opportunity. With a simple adjustment, you could be enjoying all the benefits of the Microsoft Rewards scheme without lifting a finger. While you’re at this, why don’t you also check our story about the Weekly Console Bonus?
