    MS' website, Live Search Club, are offering free prizes up to and including an xbox 360.

    All you have to do is sign in and collect points by playing games. The 360 package is a whopping 35000 points, and your best bet is to play the Chicktionary game (20 points a game with all the words found).

    Heres some math from another site for you:

    1750 times to get the 360 Bundle
    1000 times to get the Zune
    300 times to get the Vista Ultimate
    250 times to get the Microsoft Laptop Tote
    190 times to get the webcam
    163 times to get the Flight Sim X Deluxe
    135 times to get the Wireless Headset
    125 times to get the 360 Controller
    125 times to get the PGR 3 for 360
    125 times to get the Fable Platinum for 360
    125 times to get the Kameo Elements of Power for 360
    113 times to get the Movie Admission Pass
    95 times to get the Zune Case
    95 times to get the Crabtree & Evelyn La Source Weekender
    93 times to get the 20 Music Downloads
    90 times to get the Zoo Tycoon 2
    90 times to get the Microsoft Live Arcade Unplugged Xbox 360
    75 times to get the MSFT Headset
    73 times to get the Earbuds
    70 times to get the 360 Faceplate
    63 times to get the 256MB Flashdrive
    55 times to get the Men or Women's T-Shirt
    50 times to get the Headphones
    50 times to get the Magazines
    48 times to get the 10 Music Downloads
    27 times to get the 5 Music Downloads
    6 Times to get the 1 Music Download
    6 Times to get the 1 Ring Tone

    The only catch? you have to be in the US, or have a US address you can get it shipped to.

    lucky b*st*rds!!!!!!!!! If anyone wants to offer to be a staging ground for me to have mine sent to, that would be great! otherwise Im going to have to languish without one (sob! :cry:)

    For those of you wishing to maximise your time for the 360, use Anagrammer

    I've already played Chicktionary 30 times in less than 45 minutes. By my reckoning, I could do that for about 12 hours a week and it would still take me about a month to do it.

    I'd do it as well - when I'm bored out of my skull playing online poker or waiting for something to happen at work, but, from what I've heard , MS isn't too shy about pulling prizes - one poor sap I heard about played about 6000 times to get a copy of Vista and MS pulled it just as he was nearing the qualifying mark.
