UPDATE 12/30/2020, 4:15 CT: Microsoft has tweeted that they have run out of Robux codes due to popular demand. We've added the information to this story.
Microsoft rolled out a promotion yesterday through Microsoft Rewards that allowed U.S. users to claim 100 Robux for free. Except, just one day later it no longer seems to work. Microsoft has provided more information.
Microsoft Rewards: Why can't I get free 100 Robux?
Microsoft has released a statement for why the free 100 Robux can no longer be redeemed through Microsoft Rewards. Apparently the company has run out of codes due to popular demand.
This promotion has exceeded our expectations! We are working on getting codes in the coming days to eligible members who are still awaiting them. If you missed out on the promotion, we plan on making it available again at a later date for new Microsoft Rewards members in the U.S. https://t.co/860YZnKVGr

The silver lining: Microsoft plans to release more free 100 Robux codes in the next few days. We'll be sure to update this page as soon as we hear word of more codes, so keep checking back!
Here's what we can confirm:
- Dec. 29, 2020: We successfully redeemed 100 Robux for free through the Microsoft Rewards promotion.
- Dec. 30, 2020: We could no longer redeem the 100 Robux for free after testing with a brand new Microsoft account. We also tested with a new Roblox account.
- Our best guess: Microsoft paused the promotion due to some users exploiting the Robux. We have heard that some users were abusing the system and making multiple accounts to claim more than 100 Robux for their Roblox account. While this is unfair for the majority of Roblox players, we hope Microsoft will make a fix as soon as possible!
- Dec. 30, 2020, 4:15 pm CT: Microsoft has announced that they ran out of Robux codes due to popular demand. They have confirmed that they will have more in the coming days.
We recommend testing the promotion out over the next few days for yourself using our original guide to see if you can claim the 100 Robux.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Below we have compiled a list of FAQs that have come in through the comments. We hope this helps anyone who has thus far been unsuccessful in redeeming the 100 Robux through Microsoft Rewards.
Is the Microsoft Rewards promotion available in all countries?
No. The Microsoft Rewards promotion is only available in the U.S. If you live outside of the U.S. you will not be able to claim the 100 Robux.
When I try to redeem the 100 Robux, the Redeem Now button just leads to the Reward Redeem Page? I cannot find the Robux anywhere?
Microsoft tweeted on Dec. 30, 2020 that they ran out of codes. In just one day, the promotion was apparently very popular. If you've encountered a blank Redeem Page like we did during our second day of tests, it's because Microsoft ran out of Robux codes.
Microsoft has confirmed that more codes will be available in the next few days.
I already have a Microsoft account. Why can't I redeem the 100 Robux?
You must make a brand new Microsoft account. Already existing Microsoft accounts are not eligible for the promotion. While you can still earn points through Bing, existing Microsoft accounts will not have the option to claim 100 Robux.
What is the difference between earning points and claiming the 100 Robux?
Microsoft Rewards is a program that earns users points to redeem for prizes. There are many ways to earn points through Microsoft Rewards:
- Roblox Gift Cards.*
- Sweepstakes (toward a chance at winning an Xbox Series console, a Surface Pro X bundle, and more).
- Xbox Cards: Xbox Live, Game Pass.
- Several gift cards towards your favorite stores (Hulu, Dunkin' Donuts, Taco Bell, Starbucks, etc.).
*Microsoft claims that Microsoft Rewards points can be redeemed toward Robux and Roblox Gift Cards. However, Roblox Gift Cards are not present in the "Redeem" section at this time of writing.
However, this is separate from the 100 Robux promotion. Users that reside in the U.S. and create a new Microsoft account are the only users eligible to claim the 100 Robux. Claiming 100 Robux is a one-time redemption.
I'm on a laptop/mobile device. Will this still work?
It should, so long as you sign up through the promotional website.
