Hi, I was under the impression that the currency added in the conversion from MS points would not expire until June 2015.
I got that impression from the all the games media reports and also from this:
How does this change affect me?
You’ll use local currency or an Xbox Gift Card (denominated in your local currency), in addition to other current payment methods available in your region, to purchase your favorite content on your Xbox 360. The next time you initiate a purchase or redeem a Microsoft Points card or code on your console with your Microsoft account, we’ll add to your account an amount of currency equal to or greater than the Marketplace value of your Microsoft Points, and your Microsoft Points will be retired. The currency we add to your account at the time of the transition will expire on June 1, 2015. However, the currency you purchase and add to your account after the transition will not expire.
There, I bolded and underlined that part. I just had an email telling me that 87p of my money is expiring in October, so I checked on http://commerce.microsoft.com/PaymentHub and see not only is that in there but there is £1.92 set to expire on 26th of THIS month that I didn't get any email warning about.
I am aware of the Ms Points being promotional for some things you get from Rewards etc but it is a very clear message that has been put out that this currency conversion is going to expire as well. But not until June 2015. So what is up here? Was that just a lie to try and pacify people? You need to change your website if it' giving out false information or stop expiring people's currency and only occasionally sending them a warning about it.
