Redeeming "Buy As Gift" Xbox One codes in a different region

4
Found 28th Jun
So I just bought Slender for $.60 off of the Argentina Store with the "buy as gift" option.

It turns out the only way to redeem it in the US is by using a VPN when redeeming, is this the case for every region? Or is there an easier way then my friend using a VPN to redeem.

So no matter if I bought the game in Turkey, Argentina, Germany, etc. If I select "buy as gift", the recipient has to use a VPN when entering the code?

Thanks in advance.
Yes, but there a few VPN available i.e. Windscribe

Ahh okay thanks, I use NordVPN for the whole Argentina store trick. I was just wondering if my friend needs a VPN to redeem them. I'll tell him to get Windscribe or Hola.
