Xbox Live Says "Happy Birthday!"

As part of the Xbox Live Rewards program, Microsoft is giving away Microsoft Points when players' birth month rolls around.  With November finally here, I've received my 20 MS Points.  More accurately, I've received an email saying I'll receive 20 MS Points.  Points are automatically added by the 15th.  Though I received the email today, the points still haven't hit my account.  It's nothing to complain about, just another detail.  So if you've been waiting patiently for your points, don't fret too much.  After all, it's only $0.25.
