  1. Which is better, Microsoft Gift Card or Xbox Gift Card?


    I use Microsoft rewards, and am saving up for a gift card, but don't know which one I should get. What are the differences between what you can buy with each one and what other differences are there?

    (P.S. I had no idea what category to put this under, forgive me if this one was a bad choice)

    :)

    Which is better, Microsoft Gift Card or Xbox Gift Card?

    Xbox gift cards can be used to purchase digital content through the Xbox Store. Microsoft gift cards can be used to purchase content through MicrosoftStore.com (which does have Xbox stuff there too but they have physical stuff too).

    Which is better, Microsoft Gift Card or Xbox Gift Card?

    Hi Ammon,

    Thanks for coming to the forums with your question about the gift cards. Microsoft gift cards and Xbox gift cards are for both Microsoft and Xbox.

    This is directly from the
    Microsoft gift card
    :

    With a Microsoft Gift Card, give the freedom to pick the gift they want. It can be used to buy devices, games, software, apps, movies, and more. There are no fees or expiration dates to worry about. This digital gift code is good for purchases
    at Microsoft Store online, on Windows, and on Xbox. It cannot be used for purchases at physical Microsoft Stores.

    This is directly from the
    Xbox gift card
    :

    With an Xbox Gift Card, give the freedom to pick the gift they want. It can be used to buy the hottest new Xbox full game downloads, apps, movies, TV shows, devices, and more. There are no fees or expiration dates to worry about. This digital
    gift code is good for purchases at Microsoft Store online, on Windows, and on Xbox. It cannot be used for purchases at physical Microsoft Stores.

    If you are purchasing devices like Xbox console, surface pro they are limited to being used for them.

    If you will be mainly using these on an Xbox console, then the Xbox gift card is perfect.

    Thanks,

    Brad

    All that would depend on what you are wanting to do with it.

    Entered Xbox Live Code on Wrong Account

    This seems to be a common mistake for parents which is a profitable plus for Microsoft. I just spent the better half of Christmas morning with support and they will not transfer credits. Nor can you purchase an online
    gift card with your credits. Their solution was to use the credits to gift games to my children’s accounts. The only caveat was that you cannot gift items such as Vbucks which is the only reason why my kids want Xbox gift cards. This is not the first time
    I’ve had a problem with Microsoft regarding Xbox GC. I would rather deal with Comcast than this company. For what it’s worth, I filed a complaint with the Better Business Bureau this morning.
