Ok, this is taking a long time. My inventory keeps getting full and I can't trade anything so I have to gather stuff and then get rid of it and start over and to top it off I have no idea is my gathering is increasing at all. The achievement tracker on Xbox isn't showing any change at all but the one for discovering 50 nodes is as I run around the map. At this point I may just do the 50 nodes achievement as I'm 82% into that one now.

Damn, I didn't notice that achievement was 100 points. I thought it was 10.

I found a few things in the big sale but I'm waiting to see if a punchcard shows up for spending $30.00/50.00 on it first. I'd hate to spend $30.00 today and then have a punchcard show up tomorrow.

Punchcard is now up. Spend $40.00 for 4000 points.

Also there's a 250 point punchcard for getting an achievement in the game Knockout City. It's free on EA/GP so unless you want to buy it it's a free chunk of points. There's also another punchcard for buying the game.

Instructions on an easy achievement:

Quote
Knock out city easy achievement to complete the punch card.

Objective: Tackle the dummy off the roof. Use X to tackle.

This is done in Hideout (basically the menu...). Took me about 1 minute after getting the game loaded.

Details: You will spawn on a roof, run forward, to the left you will see a blue roof. Cross over the blue roof to the other building. To the left will be a red dummy. Go to the dummy, run at him and push X to tackle him. He will bounce far and should go off the side of the roof if you are going toward an edge.

Took me two tries. The dummy will run back to his place if you don’t hit him off. Just try again.

It popped right away for me once I hit the dummy off. Some people have had problems with it popping the achievement.

The achievement isn't working for me either like it says in the guide. I've knocked the guy off the roof 4 times and nothing. I'm restarting the game to see if it pops after that.

Yep, that did it. I just got the achievement after knocking the guy off one more time after starting the game over and then got my 250 points.

The sale punchcard isn't working at all for me. I bought $30.00 worth of games two days ago and it's still $0/40. I then decided to blow the remainder of my Microsoft credit and bought Call of Duty:WW2 for $40.00 and it's still $0/40. There's four days left of the punchcard so I hope something happens in the next day or two so I can complete this thing.

Still nothing for points on any of my game purchases. I should get about 3800 points for my first chunk of games and another 3200 for CoD:WW2. Then if they apply before the punchard goes away that will be another 4000 points for that. I'll be able to get another $50.00 gift card afterwards if another games comes out that I want if I get credit on all of it.

I'm in jeopardy of not getting last weeks  3 achievements done and ruining my weekly streak...

How many do you need? I'm looking through your achievements right now to see if there's anything you can do real quick to finish it.
