Buying a 1400 point card at Amazon's typical discount of 5% ($18.99) makes the ppp $1.3564 plus GST. Definitely the best deal for a small amount, if you don't want to type in several codes on Xbox.com. (Much faster in your web browser than in the 360 Dashboard!)
Be aware that XBL cards are relatively bulky in their sealed bubble packs, so the shipping box from Amazon can be surprisingly big. Also be aware that any marketplace seller will still make a profit (ie. you lose money) by charging you $16 + 5 shipping, as they can simply mail the bare card Lettermail, or possibly even e-mail you a valid code.
However, Microsoft does it (for Canada at least) so that when you redeem points on Xbox LIVE, you will always have a little bit of remnants in your card that can't be spent in order for you to buy another one some other day.
Example: You buy a 1400 point card.
You buy Splosion man, or any other 800 point game
You then buy Chime, or any other 400 point game
Great! Now you have 200 points which you cannot spend!
Some might say you can spend the points on Avatar accessories, but 1) who the hell wants to pay for these things 2) the prices are in increments of 80 points, so you'd still be left with 40 points.
The problem with this is the fact that most games and downloadable content are priced in increments of 400/800/1200/1600 and so forth, while Canadian cards are 1400/2800.
I wish we would also have 1600/4000 like Americans. Plus, we pay 20$ 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.
If you have a Credit Card, then you can purchase these points directly through the XBOX service.
USA price for Xbox Points: 1600 points for $19.99 USD
Currently, 1 CAD= almost $0.97USD
And forget about getting your cards from the US, they've fixed it so Canadians cannot use US cards.
A blantant, inexcusable ripoff.

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... Read morePublished on March 11 2010 by K. Roy
Paying 20 dollars plus appropriate shipping makes absolutely no sense on this item as its much easier just going to your local EBGames or Future Shop and picking it up in store. Read morePublished on Jan. 12 2009 by Matt Phillips

It doesn't work!
Awesome, I thought! Read more
You should never pay more than $20 for 1400 points with Xbox Live
go to futureshop, best buy or HMV to get the same points card without shipping for $20. Read more
