Now that Windows 8.1 has launched, Microsoft and Amazon have begun selling Windows Store gift cards in $15, $25, and $50 (USD) increments. These gift cards can be redeemed to a single Microsoft Account that consumers can use across multiple products, such as Windows Store, Windows Phone Store, and the Xbox Store.
“Buy and download thousands of apps, games, and more from the Windows and Windows Phone stores to your Windows Phone, PC, tablet and Xbox. From Netflix to Hulu Plus, from Twitter to Skype, you’ll find an app that’s just right for you. Plus, your gift card never expires, so you can use it whenever you want,” Microsoft stated on the online Microsoft Store.
Since there are so many great paid apps and games in the Windows Store, we are giving away two Windows Store gift cards to two lucky winners. We will be giving away a $15 and a $50 dollar gift card and it doesn’t matter where you live, you will get the amount one way or another! We here at WinBeta appreciate our loyal readers and in celebration of Windows 8.1’s launch, we are offering this giveaway.
Here’s how this works. In order to enter this giveaway contest, simply leave a comment below stating what app or game you would purchase with the gift card. You must also Tweet or Like our giveaway using the social share buttons below. If you do not follow these two steps, you will be disqualified from the contest. We will select two winners on October 25th. The first winner will receive the larger amount and the second winner selected will receive the smaller amount. This contest is only open to our readers (staff members are not permitted to enter, sorry guys!). Good luck everyone!
