Does anyone know how to check this? I got mine on release day, but I paid full price for mine. I thought there was a stipulation that you couldn't pay full price? (I paid full price to keep my unlimited data plan.)

I bought one app that was 29.99. MRLevel3. Most people won't get any use out of it, but I used to be something of a weather geek, and a storm spotter, so it could be useful to me. If I ever join another storm spotting agency, it'd get use, and I probably wouldn't have bought it without the credits, unless I did actually join a weather spotting group. To me, the whole object of spending the "money" on apps was to support developers.

Can anyone confirm 100% that they will take the expiring money first when used on the xbox ? If that is the case, I will use my $40 and just buy the season pass for GTA 5...(I was not going to get it) that comes out in a week and 1/2

Interesting... I logged into my Microsoft account where it shows my credit and it says "Your Microsoft account has $0.00 USD expiring within 30 days, details listed below."
Then I see my credit (I have $40.72 from my 928 credit)...
Account Balance Expiration $40.72 USD none
So, it's saying that this credit does not expire... Interesting...I have to get on a chat with Microsoft support to find out the deal on this...
I also thought that you could use these credits for Windows 8 marketplace but, Not sure how...
On the xbox, it shows my Microsoft credits (that I had on my 360) AND my Windows Phone credit all in one... so I am assuming that I could use it for the 360..

With the xbox one coming out and COD ghosts (season pass no question), I will spend some money in the Xbox marketplace but, I dont want to lose the points if they expire..

yea you cant use it on Windows 8, or even on Xbox.com. I'm assuming that is becuase they havent updated their website yet. Maybe if you are running windows 8.1 i will work on there... I haven't installed the preview so IDK. Part of me wants to let it go and see and if i lose it contact support then with my screen shot and be like WTF gimme my $30 back :P

I have Windows 8.1 preview on my tablet (just Windows 8 on my desktop), I found no way on both of them to be able to use the Microsoft credit :(
Microsoft said that the cash on your accounts will be able to use on all devices...hmmm

Are we sure the $25 free app credit expires? I never actually saw that written anywhere officially by Microsoft. Does someone have a link? Because today I logged into my account at commerce.microsoft.com and saw the remaining balance of my $25 free app credit there and the expiration date explicitly states "none".

Also, several people have said you can use the money to buy Xbox 360 or Windows 8/RT apps, but I haven't seen it show up as a method of payment in those stores. How have you done this?
