Microsoft Points being awarded randomly

Many people have turned on their Xbox 360 consoles and discovered that they have more [hint=Microsoft Points]MSP[/hint] than they had put on. An article on shoptonews.net claims that it has been happening to many people randomly.

Some believe it is due to the Xbox Live Rewards system, however they have been getting more than they would have been rewarded. The continous pattern of thought is that it is due to the reward scheme, but those affected are getting more than they are due. Sadly this is seemingly at random, and not everyone is being as lucky.

The screenshot below is one that my friend kindly sent to me as an example. It reveals he has been given in total 2800[hint=Microsoft Points]MSP[/hint], yet if this was due to the reward system, he should've got 430[hint=Microsoft Points]MSP[/hint], and they don't dish out the points until the 15th of each month. Many people are getting different amounts, but for now, we are left clueless until Microsoft come forward with an answer.

Yes! I've been given 600 MSP in total today (6x100), and I had no idea what for. Glad to know it's not just me.

Aww, I want my random points that I don't deserve in any way shape or form but that I'm gonna complain vehemently about because other people got them. *sulks*.

But, seriously; At least this is a "positive" bug with xbox.com. I'd spend them quick if you have them before they fix it.

ive had 1300 nearly i thought its was the reward thing at first so just brought two themes this morning. this morning i got 460 (thats y i thought it was rewards) but just checked and i got 900 sitting in my account

I haven't been so lucky.

Wooohooo I can post again. No more of that "Uh oh you have found a glitch" error.

Is there any way to see how many points have been added?

*Runs off to turn on Xbox* Godamnnnnnnnnnnnn. Nothing :(

You can just tell from the amount you had before and after.

Or you can go to billing.microsoft.com to check everything including the date they were redeem/used etc.
