Check your Gmail or Hotmail NOW – Microsoft has given away $100 gift cards

IF you're a Microsoft user you should probably check your emails immediately.

Microsoft has sent out thousands of gift cards for its online store to unsuspecting customers.

Unfortunately, the gift card codes are only thought to have been sent to people in the US.

A Microsoft spokesperson told The Verge: "To help spread holiday cheer, Microsoft Store has surprised a total of 50,000 U.S. customers with virtual gift cards via email.

"25,000 customers will receive a $100 Microsoft Gift Card while 25,000 others will receive a $10 Microsoft Gift Card ahead of this holiday season.

"These randomly selected recipients can redeem their gift card on Microsoft Store through December 31, 2021 and spend it within 90 days of redemption."

Check the email account you used to sign up for Microsoft services like Skype or Xbox Live.

The gift cards are said to be redeemable on the Microsoft Store until the end of the year.

That's plenty of time to use it wisely on a Christmas present.

According to one happy Twitter user, the Microsoft $100 email is said to state: "Had your eye on something special?

"Now's the time to shop Surface and more with this $100 Microsoft gift card."
