I would recommend this to a friend
Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Great card for gaming
Xbox Live is great my son and his friends loved it. it gives them a chance to play together online and receive free games and offers from Microsoft. I would definitely purchase another 12 month card and recommend it to other people as well.
A:AnswerSame thing as long as the prices are the same. I got it instore, but when I renew I can just get the digital code online. No difference in the product, just a tangible thing to give as a gift or hold onto after using the code.
A:AnswerIf the code was purchased online, please check your spam or junk mail filter to make sure the email containing the code didn't accidentally get sent to those folders. You may also check your Best Buy Digital Library online to see if it's there: https://www.bestbuy.com/digitallibrary/listing
I'm assuming that you have a xbox store download code for your game as part of the combo deal? If so, the code is valid as soon as your register receipt is printed and should work immediately without activating your newly purchased time. However, why not just activate it? All it will do is push out your renewal date by amount of time your bought for the combo special. That way you don't lose your time by misplacing the card you bought. Just my two cents! Have a great day!
