Microsoft is running a nifty rebate promotion on XBox Live Marketplace Points. Players that spend 2400 points (approx $30 dollars) during the month of October will get an 800 point credit (about $10 dollars) in return. This applies to arcade games like Wing Commander Arena or game content such as the XBox WC Dashboard Themes. And technically, no XBox is required if you're buying via the web. Details are available here (sorry Japan, Italy and France, you're out!).

Summer of Arcade may be over, but the great deals on Marketplace just keep coming.

Spend your bonus points on anything you want—game add-ons, avatar accessories, or even another Arcade game!
