Minecraft isn't appearing for the $5 amount when I own the 360 console

I purchased Minecraft for the Xbox 360 on 5/16/2012 and haven't played for a bit and I'm inquiring to transfer the item to the Xbox one for the $4.99 amount but shows the full listing price of $19.99. I saw the discount on the website and on my Xbox One before, but now it doesn't appear $4.99 on either the website or on my console, only the full listing price of $19.99. How can i get Minecraft for the Xbox one $4.99?

I can confirm that I am now showing the $4.99 price tag after around 48 hours of being online at the Minecraft main menu while connected to Xbox Live.

 I've been trying to get a definitive answer myself even when I met all requirements stated in the FAQ and on the web page. My discussion with Microsoft support was that after updating I need to PLAY the game for 72 hours before it would register for the discount not just waiting 48-72 hours since you launched the game and updated. I've got my 360 running now and will continue for 72 hours straight on the Minecraft main menu so that "Minecraft is playing" on my profile. Here's a segment of that chat from yesterday:

"Jibriel: Alright, [Me] upon further investigating the issue with Minecraft , you have to play it online for a minimum of 72 hours, so our server can detect your account.
Me: Per the FAQ it said to connect so that it showed it on Live then wait 48-72 hours. I know it has been longer than a week though.
Jibriel: Upon further investigating my previous customer that have similar issue, it is proven and effective that you must play it online for more than 72 hours on your 360 console just to register your profile to our system."

After 72 hours I will let you know my results but I'm just passing along the solution that was provided to me. If you can let us know you results from this solution I'm sure we'd all greatly appreciate it.

Alright, I'm glad I'm not the only one who is affected by this. Thanks for your advice, hopefully they can solve this problem or give the game to us for the price listed on their website for owning the game.
