    I got mine in the mail. I will be uploading pictures soon. Its basically a citi prepaid VISA card. It has your name on it and even sports a nice Windows Phone skin on the card with a Microsoft logo on the back of it.

    Submitted the info week and half ago and just got the email today. Another 7-10 days now.
    I don't understand why it has to be a card-how about crediting your Zune account or something...

    Suppose you want to give the card to someone else? I have all the paid apps I need, but if I wanted to, I could always allow someone to use my card to buy the app they need. Heck, now that I'm saying this, you could even sell your card for $20 and pretty much make a profit if you don't have an app you need to pay for.

    I got my $25 card last week. Best deal ever. Last year, microsoft gave me a free copy of Halo Reach when I bought that phone. Got it for nothing, just signed up for 2 years. This year I upgraded my second line on their Black friday special. Got the phone for a penny plus this 25 gift card. Awesome, can't wait to see what promotions they come up with next year.

    Can anyone tell me what the envelope looked like that it came in? Guessing mine came during Christmas (I got the notification on the 6th) and that in haste while going through my mail I threw it away. If it was a generic citi envelope that looked like a credit card offer, I might be doing some dumpster diving, but it'd be nice to know first.

    I just got my card! The envelope says Windows Phone and has the logo on it. The card doesn't seem to be associated with Citi in any way...

    I've run into a small issue. When the card gets down to a point there doesn't seem to be any way to use up the remainder. In Washington state it's illegal to do this as is putting an expiration date on the card.
    It's a small amount of money but the thought that someone's sneaking off with all these remainders really irks me.
    Any thoughts ?
