Giftcards for Turkey/Argentina region are now locked on Xbox

Just a heads up for others who use gift cards in foreign regions they've locked you being able to use Turkey/Argentina giftcards. It just comes up with an error even if redeeming on Phone/Site/Console. Brazil and USA still seem to work.

Not sure if VPNing to said countries and trying to redeem will work but this is obviously a bit of a pooper I liked cheaper games.

Unfortunately been like that since the 27th March. You can use a VPN to add your gift card if you have one. You can also still use gift cards on the US & Brazil store without a VPN.
Eeeeek. This is awkward for the “digital is better crew”....

their argument is usually based on shopping in turkey and Argentina and game sharing with a mate....

its it’s a shame but with the number doing it they were always going to look at ways to close the loops holes.

Will still be ways round this much as time goes on it’s getting hard. Not long ago it was really straight fo

Considering you can still shop around in any other country except these two, and all you need is a VPN to upload credit in these 2 regions, I think the "digital is better" crew is just doing fine. Especially as GBP credit is often available at a 20% discount, and coupling that with game sharing, the digital future is still bright...

Glad you still find it so easy and cheap. Yes the digital future is bright.. for sure. It will soon be the only option.

The next gen of Xbox and Playstation will both have disc options, so we're going to be over halfway to 2030 before you lose you disc option at the very least...
