    Region Lock Gift Code but did not receive warning.


    I bought a $40 game code for a friend in a different region and he can't redeem it but I never got a warning about a region lock or anything of the sort. I have never bought something for someone in a different region and so had no idea about this. Is there a way for him to still get a code, or do I have to go through the hassle of getting a refund?

    :)

    Code DLC region

    Gifted codes are region locked. It woyld have warned your friend before he sent it to you. He would have to try requesting a refund and then find a different way of gifting it to you.

    I live in uk but redeem a $ 75 us xbox giftcard is there any way to use it

    You would have to change the xbox live region which negates your xbox live for 3months

    Why did your friend gift you when its has a clear warning that it is region locked.

    xbox digital gifting

    Should be noted that if he isnt from the same region as you the code will not work

    When he gifts you a game you receive a code for the cash or game

    If you arent in the same region it will not work

    And yes gifted currency and games are region locked

    redeem

    Does he live in anothrr region ? If so thatd the issue

    One gifting is only allowed in the same region you had this warning when gifting as the codes would be region specific to your account

    2 cod dlc is region locked

    Youd litterally would have to find an etailer for his region and make a purchase on your own and send it to him

    How do i gift a game i already own?

    Anothrr thing to note

    You must be in thr same region as the receiver for the code to work or purchase it from another etailer in the correct region

    Prepaid codes are region locked do are gifted games

    As the other mentioned origins is no longer available and gifting an game you already own is anothrr purchase not transfering a game
