That's great, but I believe that US codes wont work on UK accounts! I may be wrong though, that might just be for points.

Yes, xbox live subscription cards will work for gamertags of any region, regardless of the region of the console.

A warning though, the Microsoft Point prepaid cards are tied to the location of the gamertag (regardless of the region of the console). So MS Points bought in the US will only work for US-based gamertags. This is protect the different licensing agreement Microsoft has with Xbox Live Marketplace and Video Marketplace content providers.

Not sure if that means if your in the UK and use a US code your BOX is then will only work for US MS Points? or does that mean if your in the UK and you use a US code it will work but you can only use UK points cards?

I bought digital delivery codes (points and GOLD) from amazon.com before and they only worked on our US account.
So unless they changed the regionlocks for the digital delivery codes, it should be like that still.
If you buy an actual LIVE Gold card from the US/Amazon, it works on any region account.
MS Points are always region locked (but you can just create an US account and use them with that then)

Had to vote cold due to good chance of it not working on a UK account, all the faffing around, and the fact that gold subs have been available for around this price elsewhere without any of the risk associated with this...

Good luck with the code though, hope it works for you.
