UK Xbox 360 Owners Also In On Microsoft’s Vague Upgrade Credit Offer

Select UK Xbox 360 users are being offered a £40 credit if they upgrade to an Xbox One.

The digital promotion was first spotted via US NeoGAF users, with the ad offering Microsoft’s ‘very best customers’ $75 USD in downloadable credit. Microsoft later clarified that the offer is also available to users in Canada and the UK.

However, despite confirming the offer is valid in the UK, it remains a somewhat vague promotion — Microsoft has offered no indication as to who qualifies for the promotion, or how much credit UK users will receive ($75 USD is worth around £43 GBP at current exchange rates).


The Metro contacted the console manufacturer seeking clarification. Microsoft fell short in providing anything that would constitute a solid explanation, instead providing the following vague statement:

“This short term promotion is offered to select Xbox fans in the US, Canada, and the UK. We are always looking for opportunities to bring promotions like this to our customers, but we have nothing further to share at this time.”

So, we don’t know what criteria you need to meet to be considered a ‘very best customer‘, but for those lucky enough to claim the offer it’s worth noting you need to redeem and use your credit before October 15th.
