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.
Sent from my SGH-i937 using Board Express

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'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 ?
