If you haven’t already started counting down the days until Sunset Overdrive and Halo: The Master Chief Collection, we’re giving you even more ways to get pumped. Starting today, Xbox Live Rewards members will earn 15,000 rewards credits, yes that’s $15, for each Xbox One or Xbox 360 game pre-ordered and shipped through MicrosoftStore.com this holiday.
Microsoft Stores currently offers anyone who pre-orders a game a $10 gift card in Store or $10 on Xbox Live when ordered on MicrosoftStore.com. In addition, they have exclusive content and swag with Halo: Master Chief Collection and Sunset Overdrive pre-orders.
When you pre-order Halo: The Master Chief Collection through the Microsoft Store, you will receive a “My Other Car is a Warthog” throwback license plate frame, a Master Chief window decal and an exclusive “Boom” Skull that unlocks 2x explosion physics for the Halo 2: Anniversary campaign.

Xbox Live Rewards members will receive 15,000 rewards credits, 5,000 credits more than non-Rewards members receive, for each game pre-ordered on both Xbox One and Xbox 360.
