Xbox Mastercard Announced: Earn & Redeem Points on Games

Microsoft has partnered with Barclays to launch the Xbox Mastercard, a gaming credit card that allows users to earn points on everyday purchases and redeem them on the Xbox store. The no-fee card will be available exclusively to Xbox Insiders in the US from September 21, with a wider rollout planned for next year. Users can earn up to 5 points for every $1 spent on certain purchases, and points can be redeemed for games, add-ons, or Xbox Mastercard gift cards. The card also offers benefits such as a 5,000-point bonus and three months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.
