Since many of us have 20x event at the same time, wouldnt xbox x be $100 in points (30% of 299.99) and $100 discount which makes this deal pretty sweet?
Basically you are getting xbox one x at $472 with 13% taxes in or $372 cash with $100 in points
definitely that would be better. I think you all are lucking out on the 20x, or using a secret loophole. oops. I said too much eh?

A 20x event would generate $150 in points on xbox x and 114 on switch. this event generates $100. There have been numerous mid week, weekend, and personal offers that have offered 20x in 2019. Since you have to get your points somehow for redemptions like the one you list, the 20x are a better way to go and is the best deal so far in 2019.
That is assuming someone wants points. Maybe they just want the console cheaper. Also like I said in my post also if a person got a personal 15x then they might be able to get that too and it seems someone was sent a 20x which of course I knew could happen and hope they can use it to get an extremely awesome deal.

Anyway here is hoping whoever wants the deal gets what they want this weekend and hopefully the personal offer works with it.

Some food for thought when people are deciding whether 20X or redeeming is a better value: how much do you value your points? Assuming you have 200k points = $300, one could put a high value of $1.5 per 1k points.

Given that, let’s use a scenario of buying a Switch at $380.


Option 1. 20x points only.
$380+5% tax = -$400 cash
Gain: 114k points.
If you value the 114k points at 1.5$/1kPTS, you get $171 back
NET COST: $229 (400 cash, but gain $171 in points)

Option 2. Redeem 200k combined with 20X
$380+5%tax - $300 = $100 cash
REDEEEM: -200k points
GAIN: 30k points
net points: -170k, valued at $255
NET COST: $355 ($100 cash and $255 worth of points)


This analysis obviously changes based on tax %, whether or not one just wants to minimize cash spent, and the upper theoretical redemption limit (ie you can’t always redeem 200k points for $300).

i have never received a 20x that overlaps another promo other than the 20% before xmas. There are loopholes on how to get the 20x so it will. I don't believe that any significant number of people are getting these by chance and the majority are using the loophole. Is all I am saying.

Yes you should be able to as long as you have the points

Not sure what city you're in but there are SDMs here in YYC with XB1X locked-up and old copies of FIFA15 for full price. Must have dust bunnies playing their games when the store closes at night. :)

My app has a 15% bonus @ SDM today and I have the 200K points but not sure I need anything at all.

20x does work but just on the pretax balance after points applied. so basically pretend you use a $300 point promo on a $400 purchase before tax, you'd get 20x points on $100
Thanks! Assuming sometime tried this and confirmed?
