Few days ago we reported about the free Windows Phone themed Xbox Avatar props for users who sign for Windows Phone newsletter. Many people got the avatar redeem code as expected, but some didn’t get it. It was because some great Windows Phone fans out there abused the system to get all the avatar props for themselves. They even listed it on eBay!
Don’t worry, Microsoft is with us. Here is their response,
We are flattered that our avatar prop is so popular, but frustrated that someone abused the system to reserve a bunch of codes for themselves and shut out legitimate users in the process. Weâ€™ve now ended the promotion for the skateboard.Â If you signed up for the newsletter (thanks, BTW!), got the invite for the gear and werenâ€™t able to redeem your code, we will be making it right:Â we will send you a code in the next few days for a different prop (a Windows Phone foam finger).
