    Code invalid = Hassle for me

    I redeemed the gift card in order to lock in my best buy points because they were about to expire. Trying to redeem the code, it didn't work. i got the message "Code invalid, contact merchant." So I called Best buy customer service and they said I had to go in store because I bought it in store. I go to the store, wait 30 min in line for them to tell me I need to contact Microsoft. I contact Microsoft and they want proof of purchase and card so I had to email pictures to them. I got the message, "your issue will be resolved." I'm waiting and waiting and then finally it has been a week since I bought the gift card before I got tired of waiting and re inquired about my issue and told them my service request number. Finally, I got it resolved by a microsoft agent. Gave me the same code... it was printed on the card wrong... new code's last 2 characters were switched. But what a pain... I should be able to buy a code and use it right then and there. Instead I had to jump through hoops. BB CS call (15 min) extra trip to BB (30 min) wait in line (30 min) 1st microsoft chat (45 min) second microsoft chat (30 min) = 2.5 hours of my own time Don't buy these codes... just purchase products through xbox. If you want to use it as a gift card for someone else, you can gift games through xbox as well so id recommend you do that instead. Good thing I bought through Best Buy. If a code was invalid and i bought from a sketchy seller then i might've been SOL.

    This does exactly what you think it does. Some of my reasons to buy these includes: give as a gift, limit your own purchases, buy to use up Best Buy certificates, buy when you have spare cash for potential future purchases in case you do not have spare cash later, or one of my favorites: for children as a reward / teaching them the value of earning this gift card and how to choose wisely what to buy with it as they will not get another for a while.

    Bought this gift card for my son... It's teaches these kids some basic management of their financials. They load the gift card into their Xbox Live user account and then can make online purchases from the Microsoft store, to which they can check the balance after purchase and apply more funds when needed. A great way to pay and allowance for chores done around the house. :)

    XBox Live Card

    Works every time. This card gives you money to spend on the Xbox Live platform. Do not confuse this Xbox Live money with Xbox Live Gold subscription. If you are wanting a subscription to Xbox Gold you can purchase 1, 3 and 12 month cards. This card is for money on Xbox Live (you don't need Gold). You can use for game downloads, music, video, skins, DLC, etc.

    Have a gamer in your life for whom you want to get a gift? Don’t know what games they like? Maybe just don’t know what they already have? Get them a gift they can choose themselves. The great thing about this gift card is they can Bank it in their account if they are not yet ready to buy. That way, the value is secure and they won’t lose, misplace or have the card stolen.

    Microsoft gift cards used to be a bit of a hassle to use in the past, but within the past few years, Xbox's dashboard has made entering in the codes from these gift cards a breeze. Not sure of what to get your loved one? Let them decide, by buying one or more of these!

    In the day and times of cyber criminals what better way to protect yourself online than to use an xbox giftcard instead of having your bank account entered in the system! Also if they get a wild hair to charge your account for something you didn't even know you were signed up for then, well, they can't take your funds! Perfect win win.

    This is a gift for the hard to buy kid in our life. He is in an in between stage where he wants to be a big kid but he really is still in the younger classifications.. This gift allows him to purchase his own accessories or games for his XBOX.

    I love my xbox since the first console came out & I love even more how Microsoft came out with these cards to make it easier to pay for things on the xbox store. I would like to see some more sales because it's always good to.get a discount & save.

    This 50 Dollar Xbox gift card is just as advertised. You make the purchase in the store, take the card home, then enter the number into your Xbox account. You get the 50 dollar credit on your Xbox account you log on with. The best part is we can support our Best Buy stores!

    great service; although I dislike the fact you can't just purchase an xbox gift card with a best buy gift card so I had to purchase a movie for same amount then go to customer service to exchange movie so I could turn around and buy the xbox card.

    I use this to buy the season pass for Black OPs 4. Rather than using my credit card. I heard once you use it you can’t delete it off your account. But I wouldn’t know, I always use a Xbox gift card.

    No taxes when you buy this gift card for Microsoft Xbox. Send to family member or a friend as a present or use it yourself. Best Buy makes it very convenient to purchase locally.

    I don't really know how you review a code card, but I'll try. I bought it, entered the code and it worked, so I can't complain. I'd rather buy these than use my credit card and take a chance on Microsoft being hacked.

    Great way to limit how much a child is able to spend through an xbox as long as you leave your payment info OFF of the console and use these gift cards when needed. Works perfect
