Microsoft launching a rewards program?

Emails sent out by Microsoft indicate the company is exploring an Xbox Live pilot rewards program where a handful of users are given “cool stuff.” How one gets chosen to be in this exclusive program or what exactly this “cool stuff” is remains a mystery, but the select few the email invitations are sent out to have until tomorrow, October 21, to sign up and, if chosen, see what the fuss is about.

Check out the full email below.

“This is an exclusive pilot rewards program. That means that the people who get in get stuff. Cool stuff. You want cool stuff, right? Sure you do, we all want stuff. Especially cool stuff. Well, you’ve only got until October 21, 2009 to let us know you want cool stuff, because after that, the doors close and someone else gets the cool stuff.

So, you click the button below and register to let us know you want in and pretty soon we’ll let you know if you got in or not – and not everyone will (that’s why it’s called exclusive).

This offer is for a select few – you can’t send it to anyone else (why would you send something this awesome to someone else, are you nuts?). If you make the cut, you can pass or opt-out whenever you want.

But then you’ll never know how it ended.”
