Xbox 360 Live Marketplace 1600 Points
Much safer than using a credit card online
I suppose some people (judging from the reviews) have problems buying their points online..... whenever I buy my points I go to my local Gamestop, get the code printed on my receipt (or one of those cards), and as soon as I get home just type that sucker in there and I'm all good. I've never had a problem and I feel much better simply prepaying for my DLC purchases through the Microsoft Points rather than hooking up a debit account or credit card to my Live Account. It also probably keeps me from making too many impulse buys.....
One note to people that don't like the idea that Xbox Live (the Gold Account, at least) costs money. If you intend to buy many things off the Xbox Live Marketplace the Gold Account pays for itself..... every week there is stuff that is drastically reduced in price.... thus if you are going to buy a couple of DLC packs over the course of a year anyways the discount ends up essentially paying for your Gold Account. Just throwing it out there, I've always found Gold to be a great deal....
Good if you have a gift card
This works with a gift card instantly but with a credit card it may last for hours until you get your code.
Better late than never!
I usually buy my points directly through XBOX but had issues last night confirming my purchases. I called Microsoft and they were of no help diagnosing my issue. I decided to try and buy the points through a third party and use the code to apply the points. It took over 12 hours for me to finally get my code but I now have the points applied to my account. If you are in a huge rush to get points, this may not be the right path for you to take as it seems the codes don't always arrive instantaneously . But since I'm extremely lazy and didn't want to get up and physically go to the store...this worked perfect! If I ever have future issues buying points direct, I'll be back.
Since when do we have to wait for digital content?
This is not the first time that I have purchased points from gamestop.com, however it is the first time that I have had to wait to receive them. It has been over two hours now, and I still do not have access to something that I have purchased. I did not know that a wait on digital content was even possible. Not cool gamestop, not cool.
Hate to wait
I could have driven the 10 min down the street, instead, I'm stuck sitting here waiting for a 3rd email that will finally have my code for my points.
Seriously idiotic system.
What can go wrong
once i entered the code i got them right away idk why every body says it takes long. But they sould lower prices or put more points on a card.
I like using these if you have alot of gb i would by all of your games with microsoft points ithe games maybe more expensive but its worth it for the xbox games, 360 games, arcade games, indie games, music, movies, avatar stuff, add on content and others but if you live right next to a games stop like me which for me only takes 2mins you should just walk there and get it trust me if your to lazy to walk to get it your going to be to lazy to get the code =D
easy as entering a code
this is such an awesome way to get points, it beats driving to a gamestop to just get points. took 0 seconds to get the code. best thing ever!
Just go to the store and get it.
This is the second time I have ordered these this week. I guess I didn't learn my lesson the first time. Earlier this week, it wasn't until after 3am that I finally got the code. I had ordered them at 6pm. Today I ordered them at 2:21pm and it is after 10pm and I still haven't received the code. SLOW,SLOW,SLOW! Just get up and drive to nearest store. My kids are growing restless. They are using these for new skins on Minecraft. Come on already.
Definately Worth $20!!!
You can buy almost anything on Xbox LIVE with it. Avatar clothes, game add ons, movies, music, it is awesome!
