More information is availible at Microsoft's XBOX sites, but it remains a bit nebulous. I don't see any reason not to purchase points, but the conversion to local currencies may alter their value, so please be aware.
One thing to know, if you are purchasing MS points to be delivered digitally--i.e. getting a code right then to download rather than having the packaged card mailed to you please understand that rather than the usual one-click method where you purchase and it comes off your gift card automatically (provided you've set this option up beforehand) you'll be asked for a credit card. This is so Amazon's digital store can verify that you are who you say you are? Seems odd, but I did that thinking that the points would be charged to my credit card and I'd just have to use $50.00 from my son's gift card in exchange. However the gift card was charged once they had verification that I was who I said I was and my credit card wasn't touched, so it all worked out. I just want to let other users know this since I was initially worried that I'd either get double billed or that the gift card wouldn't be used for this purchase.
Expecting it to be easy through Microsoft, I went to the XBox website and went through the process, just to have it refuse to add my credit card to my account (something I've come to find out is probably a blessing in disguise). I tried repeatedly, to no avail. Then my sister offered her PayPal account. We needed an "odd" number of points, so it was going to involve two purchases. We got one to go through before the XBox website said PayPal couldn't be confirmed. I then tried signing up for my own PayPal account, just to have it denied from the get-go. Frustrated, I turned to trying to buy them through the XBox itself, which was also unsuccessful.
"Desperate" (can you really get desperate about intangible points?), I decided to ignore the negative reviews and just go through Amazon. The worst thing that would happen was they wouldn't show up and I'd have to argue it.
I'm frustrated and sad that I went through all of that when buying through Amazon was nothing but perfect. The code showed up within 5 minutes and worked just fine. When I buy more points for a birthday gift, I plan to start and end my shopping here, leaving more time to celebrate and less time to tear my hair out.
