Microsoft announces new Microsoft Rewards app for Xbox One with exclusive offers for gamers

Microsoft previously announced a few months ago that the Xbox Rewards program would merge with Microsoft Rewards, and today we’re seeing the first fruits of that labor. Indeed, the company has just announced that an app for Microsoft Rewards is now available for Preview Alpha Xbox Insiders on Xbox One.

The app will be the home for joining Microsoft Rewards and finding or redeeming “exclusive offers just for Xbox fans”. Of course, it also can be used to redeem points for Microsoft Store gift cards, and check up on how many points are available for searching on Bing and buying products in the store.

Preview Alpha Insiders can try out the Microsoft Rewards app today on Xbox by opening the Xbox Insider Hub and clicking through to the “Insider Content” page. Not everyone will be seeing it right away, and Microsoft says it will be rolling the app out to more Xbox Insiders in the coming weeks.

For now, this app is only available for Insiders in the United States and Canada. Microsoft plans to roll it out to additional Microsoft Rewards markets soon.
