    How can I make my microsoft point gift cards apply to another account?


    Hi, my microsoft points are getting close to getting me a gift card, i'm just wondering, since microsoft no longer send the codes, can I choose to gift the card to another account as my xbox does not use this account?

    :)

  2. Buying Microsoft Points

    Can I use any type of Gift Cards to purchase the Microsoft Points? For example, I pay a Gift Card for $10, so that I can buy 800 Microsoft Points ($9.99 for 800 MS Points) into my account?

    Transferring purchases between accounts?

    Hi there imgayirl,

    To answer your question, we cannot transfer currency from one account to another. It's stated on the link below.

    support.xbox.com/.../microsoft-points-retire-faq

    You should see this part on the link

    "Can I transfer currency from one Microsoft account to another?

    No. Currency in your Microsoft account can't be transferred to another Microsoft account. Xbox gift cards make great gifts and can be purchased in retail locations or through any of our online retailers' websites. Xbox gift card availability varies by region."

    Hope this clears it out.

    How can I make my microsoft point gift cards apply to another account?

    Hi! This is not possible. Maybe you can afterwards purchase a gift card with this account in order to send it to the account you would like to use the gift card with?

    By the codes, I mean the gift card scratch code on the back xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx. So I know it used to be possible by typing it into a different account, i'm just wondering if you could do something similar like if you have an option to send as a code rather
    than going straight to your account. THis is because I don't use my xbox on this account.

    You would have to try contacting Microsoft Rewards customer support to see if there is anything they can do. Otherwise,
    as stated, there is no way to send the card to another account. You could use the deposited funds to gift a game to another account though.

    Earn points to use for a Gift Card, automatically places into MS Account - [Mod Removed – Profanity]!

    I appreciate your response. But this does not apply. I know how to purchase a gift card, but I want to use the credits that were applied to my account automatically by Microsoft when I earned reward points. I earned these points using BING and playing
    the games. SO, once I earned enough points, I chose to redeem those points by purchasing a gift card. However, instead of receiving a digital code via email the way I used to, it now automatically adds the gift card amounts to my MS account. The problem
    is that I wanted the gift cards to give to someone else... not myself. What is the point of choosing a gift card option to redeem reward points if you are going to give them to yourself??????

    MICROSOFT changed the way we use to be able to use the Gift cards. I now have credit in my account that I wanted to give as a GIFT. If I wanted to use the points myself, I would have chose a different reward option! The whole point of choosing GIFT CARD
    is to give! Microsoft is screwing up by changing this policy. If they think I am going to use my paypal or visa to purchase anything from them again … after this... they are crazy. I earned those points and want the GIFT CARD for a GIFT!

    How do I use the credits that were applied AUTOMATICALLY to my ACCOUNT when I chose GIFT CARD using my rewards points? I want to give the credited amount to my son and granddaughter, which I used to be able to do... now I CAN'T!

    I AM FURIOUS! It is Christmas Eve and I go to print out the email like I have done for the past 3 years, and it doesn't have the digital code. It has a statement about it being placed on my account. SO again, I ask.... how do I use those credits to give
    a gift card, which is what I already purchased with my REWARD POINTS! ANYONE????

    Is Microsoft Credits possible to use to buy future consoles like Project Scarlett?

    If you use the points to buy microsoft gift cards you can apply those gift cards to cover some of the cost and pay the rest with PayPal, credit card, etc. Unless you have a half a million points sitting around I don't think you'll be able to get the console
    with points alone.
