I followed this process. I entered the email address tied to my Microsoft Account several times a week. I got an email a few weeks later and was able to purchase the Xbox Series X Halo Edition. Thanks for the article.

How come MS never send me anything other than the crappy news about console S?

Funny that mine have been checked since i got my Microsoft account. I've had one since OG Xbox, day 1, & had 1 of every generation console, but no email here. Had to settle for a series S last month after 10 months of searching twice a day, every day using Tom's guide & tech radar links & stock updates. Thanks, Microsoft. I actually got chosen for a ps5 direct & got it in cart & everything added, all i had to do was press submit, but i decided not to, because I can't afford both consoles & would have to go through trouble of selling the series s i just got. Since those are very easy to get these days, i would have taken a loss. I could have bought it & made some money, but i despise scalpers, & would have become the very thing i hate. I only had 1 day notice, so no time to get in touch with friends who may have wanted it. I love to see how Microsoft is rewarding their loyal customers. I've had the big 3 consoles every generation, but this is the 1st one i was going to do without a PlayStation, (because i still have several ps4 exclusives I haven't had time for, & with the ability to play so many games i wouldn't necessarily buy through gamepass, i wouldn't have enough time), yet i get selected to get a ps5. I love my luck.

@Twztid13, it wouldn't let me post the eye roll emoji after, MS rewarding their loyal customers... But hopefully everyone gets the sarcasm.

do you have to put in your email associated with your xbox account? or any email that easy for you? the problem with the email i use for my xbox is i get spam messages like crazy so would be easier for me to use another email.

Seriously, Thank You! I changed my settings as you clearly instructed, and boom! a few hours later, I had my invitation in my mailbox and successfully placed my order. Thank you very much for the article and suggestions!
