    XBOX Live - Changing region

    your account region doesn't change with redemption codes

    are you buying the right codes?

    xbox gift cards are region locked meaning if you buy us gift codes they only work on us accounts

    if you have a Germany account region but buying us or uk codes that wont work iut will cause a us or uk billing account

    you have to buy currency cards based on your account region and actual region

    so if you are buying us currency cards but have Germany billing address you are causing a split billing where the us currency or foreign currency wont work on your local account

    Can I use a Xbox gift card with foreign currency to buy games?

    then how can one send a gift from the US to the UK for the Xbox since there is a Region Block?

    Xbox gift cards

    Hi,

    Xbox Gift Cards only work for the region they are purchased for. Therefore a UK £5.00 card will not work in the U.S. You would need send them the money via PayPal or a bank transfer and then they can buy a gift card in their own region.

    Incorrectly formatted zip code

    [Mod removed- inappropriate] Unfortunate man.

    Alright, is it possible to change my Xbox Live Account region to say US, then I buy a US gift card?

    In that, a mate of mine is selling gift cards and he doesn't have for UK so I'm worried that if it's possible for I to change my region to US, whether the code would still work.
