    I live in Canada and I want to BUY a USD Xbox Gift Card to send to friend in US, what do I...


    I have literally tried for an hour to do it through both the US and the Canadian version of the www.microsoft.com website and cannot get it to work.

    Why is this so hard?

    I can buy ANYTHING from the US (using my Canadian credit card) and have it MAILED to me in Canada, but Microsoft wont allow Canadians to BUY a US Xbox Gift card to give to US people (DIGITAL DELIVERY, not even MAILED)

    What the "F" , literally????

    Does Microsoft not want my money? (nor do they want my friend in US to have it?)

    I am literally thinking I should send him Sony PlayStation Gift Card (in US) instead, is that the better option?

    Incredibly disappointed Canadian trying to buy Xbox US Gift Card.

    :)

    I live in Canada and I want to BUY a USD Xbox Gift Card to send to friend in US, what do I do? (this should be simple)

    Becaise different companies own different things in differeent countries. For example, Lord of the Rings is not WB in Canada, and Rockstar Games are Capcom, and call of Duty is Square in Japan.

    Yiu canuse Amazon to send them a gift card.

    Redeeming Xbox Gift Cards from Different Regions

    Hi. I live in Australia and I have a friend from the US who wants to send me a $5 USD Gift card. I was wondering if it is still possible to redeem it and if it will be automatically turned into AUD or if that's not possible. Thank you :)
    No, gift cards need to be done in region. You could move your location region to the US and use the giftcard then. but you can not cross region use gift cards.

    There’s a problem completing your move right now. Please check the Region Change Support Page to make sure it will work for you, and try again later.

    Hi Ungunable,

    Are you trying to Buy gold with the 25 USD card ? You can not use the MSA balance on the card to buy gold. If you would like to buy gold you would need to either Purchase A code for 1,3,or 12 month Gold in Canada or use a Canadian Credit card to purchase
    Xbox live gold. The 25 USD can be used to buy content like games,movies, DLC. So if the system is looking for Canadian money for gold then it is doing exactly the correct thing.

    Redeeming a code in Canada

    I have NO IDEA where to buy those damn gift cards for Canada.

    Do they even exist???

    Cause it seems the only $$$ gift card I can find are for the states and will NOT work on

    a Canadian profile. So how the hell do I buy stuff now? Not using credit cards or things like that on my xbox/xbox one.

    So where/how do I get a prepaid card?
