Microsoft is wading into new waters with its gaming brand: credit cards. On Monday, the company announced a new Xbox credit card, exclusively available to Xbox testers in the US. This partnership with Barclays will offer gamers a unique opportunity to earn rewards and enjoy special benefits tailored to their gaming lifestyle.
The Xbox Mastercard, as it is officially called, has no annual fee and promises to reward Xbox players with 5X card points on qualifying purchases made within the Microsoft Store. This means that gamers can earn bonus rewards not just on games and accessories, but also on select streaming services and food delivery.
One of the most exciting features of the Xbox Mastercard is the exclusive offer for new Game Pass members. Upon signing up, gamers will receive three free months of Ultimate, allowing them to dive straight into an extensive library of games and enjoy the full benefits of their Xbox credit card.
