[Targeted] Free $5 Microsoft Giftcard If You Receive E-mails From Microsoft

The Offer

Microsoft sent out an e-mail with the subject line ‘Our Spring Sale starts now’

  • If you click the flowers in the e-mail you received you’ll receive a one time use $5 Microsoft gift card

  • Once clicked you should see this:

The Fine Print

  • Must spend by April 30th, 2019
  • Offer valid in US and Puerto Rico only

Our Verdict

Not a huge deal, but $5 is $5 I guess. Not sure what you can realistically use it on.

An anime entitled “Your Name”, literally. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Your_Name

Either I’m doing it wrong, or the [targeted] part is for the gift card, not the email. I’ve got the email but can’t get anything to show up when I click through. Tried firefox (not signed in), edge (signed in), no dice.

i clicked the flower at the bottom left (the middle is flashing yellow), if that helps

Me too. I didn’t read closely and clicked the “shop” button first. Went back and clicked the flowers, but nothing.

Found it! It was the flashing flower I had to click. For me, the short one on the left. I needed to do it twice, once to prompt logging in, again to get the card code to appear. Good luck!

This is either a good joke, or I’m not targeted. I’m looking at the HTML and I only see one anchor (link) tag that encompasses the whole image And none of mine are flashing (no javascript in email, and the images are all .jpg and .png which doesn’t support animations)

JPG of course does not support animation, but PNG actually does, FWIW. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/APNG
