"Sales and Specials" app

You probably know about this app already but said I'd post anyway:

You've already won something in 2013 - it's a free Toy Soldiers-themed biplane for your avatar on Xbox Live. We admit, it's a little hard to get to, but if you've got a few minutes to spend browsing around Microsoft's interface (and about 150 MB free on your hard drive), the biplane avatar prop (usually 240 MSP) is yours for the taking.

So here's how you do it: The prop is being given away as part of the Chain Reaction deal inside Microsoft's "Sales and Specials" app, which is a free app designed to point you toward games and content on sale. If you don't have this app, you'll have to download it - go to the Games tab on Xbox Live, and then choose "Browse Games." The "Sales and Specials" link is up in the top right corner (it currently features a Madden 2013 graphic), and then you'll just need to click on "Get the Free App" to download the app. It'll update once if you don't have it yet, taking up about 150 MB of hard drive space.

Once you have the app, you can simply navigate over to the "Chain Reaction" set of deals, and the first deal in the chain is a free biplane, no strings attached. Sure, it's a little complicated, but the holidays are over, right? Might as well pick up one more present while you can.

Something I've mentioned elsewhere, but worth repeating ...

Be wary of making purchases in the Sales & Specials app.  It does not recognize previous purchases on the Xbox LIVE Marketplace, nor does the Marketplace recognize purchases made within the app.

It is very easy to accidentally buy something twice if you don't keep a good record of what you own.  So before making a purchase within the Sales & Specials app, check the Marketplace to see if you've already bought it.  Before making a purchase on the Marketplace, check your Hard Drive to make sure you haven't already bought it on the Sales & Specials app.
