    This is a training site for "retail employees" where you can take quizzes to get free stuff. You get 100 points for finishing each quiz and they're all easy and should take less than 2 minutes each. Games cost 1500 points and there are enough quizzes to rack up around 3500.
    Some of the games you can get are Halo, Quantum Redshift, NFL Fever 2003, Project Gotham, Amped, Fuzion Frenzy, Bloodwake, and a few others(mostly old). I opted for 2 copies of Halo since I wanted to swap mine out for a GOTY case and Halo probably makes the best Xmas gift for someone else out of all the games they had. There are some other cool items there for 1000 points each, including a "gangsta style" Xbox hat that I was very tempted by, and an Xbox T-Shirt.
    The only thing you have to pay is shipping, which is somewhat high($12 for 2 games).

    Just to stress the point, this is aimed at RETAIL employees, NOT the general public.

    What store did you put down you worked for? Don't they check these things since they ask you for a store #?

    This sounds very interesting. While I don't currently work in retail. I did in the past. Can anybody go and do this?

    It states very clearly that you need to be currently employed at a retail store that sells xbox.

    I've been doing this since it came out...
    They have just added a couple of new games to the list.
    I've been VERY happy with it.

    Yep.
    You'll need your store info in order to sign up, though.

    I've been trying to discover the process to sell Xbox games as an independent distributor, MS does NOT make this an easy process....
