i think u can, its the points that dont work

It won't work on a uk account.in theory it shud work on a us account.but us people in uk with us account have rescricted access so we can't download movies

To get this to work you need to set up an email address in the US, like register with hotmail and say you live in America, and then create a new xbox live gamertag using that email address.

Given the current rate of exchange, you're saving probably a couple of quid at most, whereas about a year ago you'd be saving half.

Go with one of the online code distributors instead.

yeah, i automatically thought it was half :-D, forgot that the £ sucks against the $ right now

This site is great! I love HotUSDeals!

Whether the US ones work with UK consoles is irrelevant anyway. Amazon won't ship most things to the UK from their US site - THESE INCLUDED. From the site:

Does this make the deal worth expiring...?

You can usually start a new account with a US code but you can't extend an existing live gold.
