Literally minutes after updating my settings, I received the email.
Of course, I didn’t check my inbox until 2 hours later… But I was able to place an order and get a confirmation email!
Check Your Spam/Junk Email Folders
This tip is the most accessible and practical thing you can do to see if you have received an Xbox Series X Invite from Microsoft Store.
Many gamers have reported they received one, but it went directly to their spam/junk email folders.
Some have reported that even after opening their emails quite late, they still got a console.
My two e-mails were in the Spam folder since YESTERDAY. I still managed to get one. Definitely check your Spam folder(s).— Eric Hernandez (@erichernz) November 20, 2021
