Nice one cheers
Oddly, despite saying £7.85 throughout the purchase process, and saying I'd been charged £7.85 in the e-mail received, the orders section of the site lists an order total of £9.42. A hasty e-mail has been fired off in their direction...

Can confirm the code worked and gave me £10.20 credit, though!
Good price, but you aren't making £2.35, you are spending £7.85!

Doesn't matter that it says £9.42 in the order total, as you have only authorised them to charge you £7.85(The price displayed next to the item and the amount stated you were to pay on checkout). So that is the max they can take without contacting you before hand and giving you the option to cancel (which you cant now) or unless you use a voucher code not specified to be allowed (i.e. Very style re-charge)

Anyway thanks OP, bought a couple for my impending transfer over to the xbone, so i can get the killer instinct characters

....to get £10.20 online spending money.
I guess I already know the answer to this, but does this credit transfer across to the xbox one the same as your gamertag?

I'm guessing yes.

Anyone else only getting the option to buy with a credit card?

"That your online wallet will display in your local currency and your balance can be used across Xbox 360, Xbox One and the Windows Phone store"

So yes
I haven't voted either way because as a new customer, it wouldn't let me order it. I have to order something physical first and have it delivered, or wait until they have my card details for 30 days before I can order this.

It would have had heat were I able to order it. Good deal.

Believe you cant do paypal for instant purchases, as its easier to say you havent received it and get your money back. Which is also why you need to either have bought a physical item before or had your card on their system for a month
Bought 4 and gained 10 quid...I will be using those to buy games on the Xbone
Thanks OP.
Already had a fairly healthy balance, but have added another tenner - I'm sure I'll find a use for it all!

In fact, I'm off to download Far Cry Blood Dragon, which was reduced to half price (£4.99) yesterday...

Heat added.

Save here except I can't even register as my email address has an underscore. If you try and type it in it just removes it.
I've bought stuff from shopto before and now it's telling me something about 'invalid authentication' using the same card I used last time. O'well guess I'll wait for another deal to pop up.

Because you can buy everything physically, can you?
Shopto accidentally sent me 2 codes for the price of 1, and they both redeemed for 1200 points each! Strangely enough, I did get 4 confirmation e-mails for payment so hopefully I haven't been charged 4 times!
Sounds like a good deal, but just an fyi if people don't know:

"Microsoft Points cards and codes that you have purchased and choose to redeem after your account has transitioned will expire one year from the date the Points are redeemed."

So make sure they're not sitting around in your account for a year otherwise you'll lose the credit! (Source).
Thanks

I've had plenty of games etc. from the Live Marketplace for much cheaper than they could be had physically, as well as lots of digital downloads that aren't available at all physically.

Thanks for visiting a thread you have no interest in, though. What a fun existence you lead.
Best of luck in your continuing efforts to convince those of us who know it's a good deal that it actually isn't.
How do you get the points????? Ive purchased and had the email from them, but no info on the points and no obvious advice on the site itself? I had assumed the code would be emailed over?????

Any help would be appreciated

click my account (top right) then click orders. you should see the points order, click the download cloud icon thingy to the left of the order to see get your code.

HOT deal btw. xbox one games brought digitally can work out to be £39 if you buy 5 codes..roughly..

Thanks for the responce, but nope..... wont work for me. I just get and image that looks like it has been pasted from MS website. It just tells you how to redeem the code, but no code..... Ive messaged them!
i can't buy it as it says "sorry, we cannot supply digital products to customers who have not previously received phsyical products and had a card registered to their account for at least 30 days"

Good price, but you aren't making £2.35, you are spending £7.85!



Actually technically you are. Microsoft will soon get rid of XBL points altogether and convert existing points into real currency using the current RRP of points.
Therefore when they roll out the update to convert points to money, you will indeed make a profit of £2.35 give or take.

But it's not a profit of £2.35 unless you are able to withdraw the money back onto a debit card from your Xbox account - I think that is the point he was trying to make.

Bear in mind, also, that there were fairly sizeable price jumps when they converted everything over to currency instead of points, which basically cancels out the '£2.35'.

That will mean that they run out of stock between you ordering it and them sending the order to you. Contact the support.

I had the same problem with the Xbox live a few days ago. They will most likely refund you as I doubt they'll get more of these points in stock now

That's not really fair as the points did not have a year expiry on them. I will have to spend the £80 in a year then!!!!

Note that the year only starts ticking once you've input the codes onto your account.
If you've not already put them on you could just keep (some of) the codes safe until you need them.
They sent me (through the post) codes for 800! MORONS!
