    Argos - unable to activate XBox Live Gold 12-month subscription cards


    Argos is a major retailer in the UK

    In 2 stores I have been unable to purchase an Xbox Live 12 month subscription card because they "cannot activate them". The stores in question are in Central Scotland. The first in Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow advised me of this and would not sell me the
    card. The second tried to purchase the card, took the money, couldn't register the card (Top Up Failed?) so they had to refund me.

    They are advertising the 12 month card for £39.99 as opposed to £49.99 everywhere else.

    What gives?

    :)

    Argos - unable to activate XBox Live Gold 12-month subscription cards

    Hi AngelObullets,

    Thanks for your quick reply. I will take this up with head office. They know exactly what they're doing, yet they continue to advertise this. They still have the cards on the shelf in every store. Are Microsoft "in dispute" with Argos due to this offer?
    Who knows.

    Argos don't even do a Pre-auth on the card, try to activate it and if successful complete the transaction or rollback. They actually take the money and then have to authorise a refund. Utterly despicable. I will have to buy from another vendor to renew my
    subscription.

    Thanks for your advice.

    Unfortunately this sounds like an argos problem rather than a Microsoft problem

    It could also be the pay point was also down on the day of purchase, but head office would know more about the issue. There hasn't been any issue between the known publicly known, so we cannot say if there is a dispute or not sadly. It might be fixed by
    the day you report this to head office, in case there was a technical issue activating the card.
