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.
So after me trying everything to make this damn card work again, which involved changing my email SEVERAL TIMES, making a whole new account, hours wasted, trying paypal, and crazy amounts of frustration I went on amazon to see about really the last option I had which was to redeem a code for the points.
I was iffy about this at first because I kept thinking "what if they don't send me the code" or "what if the code doesn't work". But it turns out these worries were all for nothing because when I ordered my code was right there! Didn't have to wait for an email or anything.
I bought two 1600 codes and one 400 one and redeemed them on my 360, and WOW they went through with no hiccups, no authorization errors, no damn credit card needed! I could've weeped in joy. The funny thing is, Amazon accepted the same credit card that Microsoft had a problem with with absolutely NO issues!
I will definetly be buying more of these codes in the future! It's so freeing to be able to avoid microsoft's BS!
