    How to set parental controls so child can redeem microsoft points card via his xbox 360 ...


    Is there a way to set parental controls so that my son can purchase games by redeeming microsoft points cards without having access to my credit card? He has an xbox 360 and we have an xbox live gold account. Thanks

    :)

    XBox 360 How to stop my son from downloading Maps and Games that cost money without my permission

    You can set parental controls via the family setting on the dashboard (if using an Xbox 360) or you can remove your credit/debit card from his account.

    Parent wants to sue Microsoft over $4,500 Xbox bill

    gotta say I'm also on the side of this is on the parents, not microsoft. this is why I don't store my credit card info on my console. buying points cards works just as well. and then ofcourse like others have said pass word the account lol

    Buying points for a child

    Buying points for child, part II

    Ok, I bought the card, and worked out how to upload the points to my child's account (couldn't do it via the TV/console, so tried via PC - MUCH EASIER!)

    But.... she still can't redeem the points!!!

    Can someone tell me where I went wrong in this sequence?

    1. Via TV screen, connect to xbox live under child's ID, confirm that the points appear in her account.

    2. Go to Bazar. Choose game. select 'purchase'. Message appears "Please go to parental control section and authorize purchases for this user" (or something like that)

    3. I discover that parental control is not even activated on my system. so I activate it.

    4. Bazar now appears absolutely empty of content !!!

    5. go to My Xbox, check configuration. Aha! The third pane (Security online) says she's set to 'Child' security setting, which includes 'purchases not permitted' among all the other restrictions.

    6. Select 'change configuration', Choose "Personalize". Reset to allow purchases.

    7. Still no content in the Bazar !!!

    8. resort to forum (and strongly consider trading in the Xbox for something more user friendly)

    Hi there,

    Not sure if they won't see the content, but they should definately not be able to use it, when you set up parental controls

    This link explains how you can block certain content for child accounts etc:

    Parental Approval required for my adult account?

    Hi there, Samurai. Are you purchasing these points via the xbox LIVE market place, or trying to redeem the code via a Microsoft points card?

    New Xbox Live account required parent Microsoft account and now child cannot access the new Live account.

    We have never had Live or a Microsoft account. My son has an avatar on the Xbox 360. So when I was required to go set up a Microsoft parent account to access "Live" I did that and redeemed the code assuming that is what they just instructed me to do! I am
    so confused. Now that we did what they said and set up the parent account, how does the child access it?
