I'll be getting Sonic 4, the BC2: Onslaught DLC and maybe Dead Space Ignition or Super Meat Boy. Should easily spend 2400

There has been some confusion on the internet regarding whether or not Deal-of-the-Week offers count towards the 800 MSP rebate.  It has now been officially confirmed.

@reddjoey As long as its Games and Game Add on's, it should. ^MK

Few people asking about the Oct rebate (spend 2400 points, get 800 back) - just been confirmed, points spent on DOTW do count towards 2400.

Just keep in mind that only XBLA and Game Add-On purchases count towards the rebate.

Things that don't count:
-Zune Content
-Avatar Gear
-Games on Demand
-Game Room Games
-Indie Games
-Themes and Gamerpics
-Videos
-Gamertag Change
-Rock Band/Guitar Hero Import Fees

The history should be categorized by month.

Once logged in, click the "Points" link in the top/left corner of the page.  It should show you your MS Points activity for October 2010 only.  If you haven't bought or spent any MS Ponits this month, it will be blank.

There's an xbox.com forum thread I'm following about this.  Microsoft REALLY needs to learn a lesson and give us all of the boring details on day one.  It would save them a fortune on Support calls.

Things that don't apply to the offer:
- Zune Content
- Avatar Gear
- Games on Demand (surprising but true)
- Game Room Games (there are conflicting reports, you've been warned)
- Indie Games
- Themes and Gamerpics
- Videos
- Gamertag Change
- Rock Band/Guitar Hero Import Fees

Everything else should be up for grabs.  If there's anything I'm missing, let me know.  I'll try to find an answer.

Also, if you haven't done so already, buy Super Meat Boy.  800 MSP for a limited time, so you might at well apply it to this promotion.
