Convenience at an inconvenient cost.
on March 14, 2014
While I am pleased with the ease of these prepaid cards and codes, and I enjoy the services provided through an xbox live account, I am not pleased with how convoluted the pricing is. In what world is it cheaper to mail me a card than it is to simply give me the code? There aren't ground fees, there is no postage required. So why, of all things, is the easiest option more expensive? At the time of purchase, $10 more expensive. The last time I checked? The cost of the online code was still a penny short of $60, and the card itself was somewhere around $52. So tell me, what is the reason for charging $8-$10 dollars more on average for the online code option? If someone could share that wisdom it would be appreciated. The only reason I purchased this was because it was a gift, and their subscription ended tonight. Work on your pricing, my dears, because it is a**backwards.
