    Card does not activate

    I ordered this card on 1/11, it shipped 1/14, received 1/22, and it will not activate. I called the Best Buy Activation # 800-931-3713 and they could not activate it either. They gave me the option of a refund, shipping me a new one, or sending me to the store where they can activate it. I chose the store route but today, the 25th, they turned me away as well & said I need to call the activation line as they do not deal with activating cards. Calling them today, I had to explain my situation to 4 different people within the process of being placed on hold & the call ended up automatically transferring. They finally said I need to speak with Microsoft to activate the card. Now this is the first attentive human I've spoken to yet (not a BB employee). Supposedly within 2 days, I should have my card activated or a credit of the points I purchased placed on my account as a "courtesy" My point is, this should be activated long before I receive it & I should simply be able to put a code in. As of now, I still do not have an active card, have spent 3 conversations on the phone totalling over an hour & a half, & have driven to the store. What was the point of ever ordering this product on-line? Do not purchase this item from Best Buy. They do not have a system set up to properly sell these.

    Can't return or exchange once purchased!

    So I bought this to give to someone for Xmas and I asked for a gift receipt as well. Person who I gave this present to decided they wanted something else so I decided to return it to store and exchange it for a game. To my surprise customer service told me that I cannot exchange this or return the item. I asked why. I was told once best buy scans the barcode it automatically register to Microsoft and they cannot cancel it. I asked them why they would give me a gift receipt if I can't even return it. Also I had original receipt and had bought it less than a week ago. I was told to call Microsoft and speak to them about getting a gift card or something similar. I told customer rep that I don't want a gift card and I wanted to exchange this or get my money back. It seems pointless to even have a return policy for this or hand out a gift receipt if you can't return or exchange. I usually buy my gadgets and games from best buy but this definitely leaves. Bad taste in my mount. I am sure 4000 Microsoft points is great but I just want to warn any potential buyers thy if u purchase this item as a gift think twice and make sure person you are buying it for really wants it or your out $50 plus tax. I would love someone from bestbuy corp to contact me and gets this resolve if possible. In any case happy holidays!

    Necessary evil in the day and age of DLC

    In this day and age of "DLC", these are a necessary evil. As a reward zone member I received an offer to receive an additional 400 points with the purchase of 4000 points. When I arrived to the store, the 4000 pts card was $5 off that week, so a double bonus for our family. My wife and daughter got a couple of songs for Dance Central. My son got the Injustice Season Pass. I have some points left over for Madden 25 "MUT".

    Had to load up before XBOX live went to $$$ the real deal $$$. if you don't already know live is moving to cash. Although for a limited time they will be converting your points back to cash in your account. Sooo if your one of those who don't believe providing your bank or credit info is in your best interest then now is the time to purchase points while supplies last....

    Card quality is decent, code worked and was not stolen between purchasing and entering (always a plus). however the graphics are lacking and the cards long term usefulness comes into doubt. perhaps it will make a good shim... next winter storm I will check its ice scraping durability

    So I always like to buy my point cards from BestBuy to get the reward zone points. I'm kind of sad MS is abandoning the points system with the One. Then again it will make it easier to know what I'm spending and when, just hope I can continue to go through BB to get rewards points.

    Product as promised. Was nice to see it on the Best Buy deal of the day. Wish we saw it more often! I am hoping now that xbox goes to cash that they offer more offers to all the people who constantly purchase and continue to pay for xbox live

    Well I use my x box to watch movies with the family. The nice thing is that you can buy this at best buy, get reward points, and go home and add to the x box and never have to worry about someone getting my credit card.

    These card are great for gifts. I purchase most of my points online, saving the gas and mileage to pick up the points for the same price. Sometimes when you catch sales going on you can take better advantage of the cost.

    You pay for the system, you pay for live, you buy the game, then when you want anything extra you might want you need some points. Try to get it on sale. if you can't tell I'm cheap.

    Microsoft Points are Microsoft Points, just a means to an end. I'll miss them slightly when they go, as we'll likely never see sales on gift cards under the new system.

    This is an excellent, easy choice for kids purchases. However, once the card is put into his account, it's harder for me to monitor purchases before they happen.

    Points for Microsoft ecosystem. With how Microsoft prices these, it makes it more expensive compared to other ecosystems. But, not like have a choice.
