From time to time, Microsoft may offer promotional gift cards you can redeem to your Microsoft account.
- Promotional gift cards and codes have an expiration date. See the terms of the promotion for details.
- When you buy from us with your Microsoft account, we’ll use any promotional balances first, starting with the nearest expiration date.
- Any money in your Microsoft account not from a promotional gift card is “non-promotional” and has no expiration date. But if you don’t use your account for a prolonged period of time, the law may require us to consider it abandoned and to transfer any funds to the appropriate government authority.
- We will reach out to give you adequate notice before transferring any money from your account.
