    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    The Xbox gift card is the perfect alternative to cash or an Xbox game or accessory that the recipient may already have. No risk of buying the wrong thing, they can buy what they want.

    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.

    Sometimes gift cards for electronics are an issue. There are some that don’t recognize the code and create lots of issues that take time to resolve but this one was effective in less than 5 minutes

    If you don't want to store your credit card information online through Microsoft, then this gift card will do the job on giving you credit to buy anything for Xbox.

    If you dont want to add your credit card or pay pal for safety issues this is the way to go. If you dont want your kids to spend your whole check this is also a great way to set them on a limit

    Microsoft points are a great gift when you have a child who doesn't want much and they play Xbox. They can buy games on the dashboard or xbox live.

    Great gift idea for kids. Although I don’t want mine on the Xbox all day, here is value on letting them socialize with their friends while letting off steam from their school day.

    just a gift card, not much to say other than should've gotten the cheaper one that includes the free 5$ cards. stores seem to like to hide those as I cant usually find them easily...
