Microsoft Launches Xbox Mastercard with Redeemable Points for Games

Turn Every Purchase into a Portal to New Gaming Adventures with Microsoft’s Xbox Mastercard. Level up your life, one point at a time!

Attention all Xbox aficionados! Your gaming world is about to get an extra layer of awesome. Imagine a credit card that doesn't just make your life easier, but gaming-er. Welcome to the future with the Xbox Mastercard, a no-annual-fee credit card that rolls out the red carpet to a wonderland of Xbox games and add-ons.

Brought to you by the dynamic partnership of Microsoft and Barclays, this isn't your run-of-the-mill plastic. For the first time ever, Xbox Insiders in the U.S. will have exclusive first dibs on this financial game-changer starting September 21, with a nationwide launch set for 2024.

"As thrilling as landing that impossible jump in Halo or smashing your personal best on Forza, our Xbox Mastercard will let you accumulate points for every dollar you spend—be it on games, Netflix, or even your DoorDash deliveries," exclaims Dave McCarthy, the maestro behind Xbox player services.

Every dollar you spend reels in a point. Pool 1,500 points and what do you get? A shiny $15 gift card to splurge at the online Xbox store! But we're not stopping there. Prepare for a points bonanza—5 points for every dollar spent on Microsoft Store goodies, 3 points on streaming giants like Netflix and Disney Plus, and 3 points on delivery champs like Grubhub and DoorDash.

Hold on, there’s more! Get ready to be showered with a whopping 5,000 points ($50 value) as a welcome bonus after your first purchase. Plus, snag a complimentary three-month Xbox Game Pass Ultimate membership, which can also be gifted to a buddy if you're already a subscriber.

Get artsy with your credit card design! Choose from five scintillating designs or brand it with your very own gamertag. Xbox Insiders across the continental U.S., Alaska, and Hawaii can start putting in their applications this fall.

Not since 2005 has Microsoft rolled out anything like this—the last being the Xbox Live Diamond loyalty card. Even Sony’s PlayStation card is now looking nervously over its shoulder.

So, if you're ready to turn your spending into gaming wins, the Xbox Mastercard is your golden ticket to a universe of excitement. Game on!
