Back in May of 2015, Microsoft launched the Earn Program. Limited to Arizona, Massachusetts, and Washington, the program was aimed at helping shoppers gain credits to spend at the Microsoft Store by shopping at other retailers such as Starbucks, Whole Foods, and 7 Eleven, Unfortunately, however, as noted by Windows Central, the program will shut down on March 5th, 2017.
As seen above, the word that the program would be shutting down spread via an updated Microsoft Earn website, which now has a banner alerting those who are interested that the program is ending, and new members are no longer being accepted. Additionally, an email was also sent out to users of the service to alert them of the impending shutdown. The email reads:
"The Microsoft Earn program is ending on March 5, 2017. We want to thank you for being an Earn member, and we hope the program has been beneficial to you.
Between now and March, you can spend your Earn credits, as usual, in the Microsoft store (online and in-store)"
