Earning Achievements can now get you discounts on XBLA

Microsoft has just begun rolling out its MyAchievements” program which rewards Xbox Live gold subscribers for having a high gamerscore. Having a gamerscore between 3,000 and 9,999 will get you a gift during your birthday month valued at a whopping 25 cents. Having 10,000 to 24,999 points will get you a 1% rebate on your purchases on Xbox Live every month and if you breach the 25,000 points mark that rebate will be bumped up 2%.

Having cash back is pretty cool and all but it doesn’t really help me if I can’t find the damn game store thanks to the new dashboard. That being said if you’re a gold subscriber and you have the points you may as well opt in and get your discount.
