If you dont have a credit card, it does the job if you want points

However, Microsoft does it (for Canada at least) so that when you redeem points on Xbox LIVE, you will always have a little bit of remnants in your card that can't be spent in order for you to buy another one some other day.

Example: You buy a 1400 point card.
You buy Splosion man, or any other 800 point game
You then buy Chime, or any other 400 point game

Great! Now you have 200 points which you cannot spend!

Some might say you can spend the points on Avatar accessories, but 1) who the hell wants to pay for these things 2) the prices are in increments of 80 points, so you'd still be left with 40 points.

The problem with this is the fact that most games and downloadable content are priced in increments of 400/800/1200/1600 and so forth, while Canadian cards are 1400/2800.

I wish we would also have 1600/4000 like Americans. Plus, we pay 20$ for 1400 points while they pay approximately the same for 1600 points.

Or, even better, it would be great if XBL switched to real pricing just like the PlayStation Network.

An ideal item if you dont have a credit card. You can download themes, gamer pictures, DLC, ect with this item if you dont have a credit card to buy Microsoft Points. The only downside is that Amazon charges around $4.00 shipping if you dont get super saving shipping which you need $36.00 or above in your cart. I used an Amazon Gift Card to buy the points card, so I didn't really care.

they're point cards...they do what they set out to. Gotta love Microsoft's brand of funny money as you'll almost always have leftover points you can't buy anything with (thus forcing you to buy more point cards...etc)

I wish MS would adopt Sony's online purchase policies which are made in real $$ therefore you can always buy exactly what you need and not a penny more.

anyways wait for these to go on sale as they (along with the 1400 point cards go down $5 in price about 2-3 times per year...so $14.99 and $34.99 respectively). Watch your Real Canadian Superstore flyers each week for the price drops and stock up then. Amazon used to discount these as well every now and then but they don't seem to bother anymore...sadly...
