Does anyone have experience buying from xbox.com

I dont have an xbox one but intend on getting one in a month or two. In antocipation i thought i could buy a couple of games on xbox.com so that they are on my account in advance. I've tried twice so far and each time the games dont appear. Does anyone have any advice?

The games with gold get added fine as do codes that I have bought elsewhere. Just games I'm buying directly on xbox.Com dont show up.

Thanks

I go to the my games section on xbox.com and they dont show up. Nothing at all. Other games do though, like the ones i have from games with gold or codes i have redeemed after buying them elsewhere.

That doesn't update very well at all for me. Shows a poker game I got over a month ago as the latest thing purchased.

When you get your console, all the games you have will be readily available

That's strange.
Do they appear on your purchase history for your Microsoft account?

​Don't games only appear in the 'Games' section after you've played them?

This. I'd check your purchase history but they'll appear in your download queue on the Xbox One

I had bought battlefield 4 and battlefield hardline in the recent deals they had
Both times they didnt show up so microsoft refunded them and told me to try again
Today i went to try for the third time and found that the deal had ended and prices were back up high again.. :-(

Do you have a friend who's console you could log in on to check they're there?

I could ask someone but the games got refunded now...
