Nice there were still some on ebay for me and I had gotten the 25 dollar gift card for 20 that they had on there a while back so technically it cost me 20 for 4000.

regarding the ebay route - they all seem to be 360 accounts with preloaded points. if all I have is a Zune, can I still recover the points somehow from the account?

Temporarily out of stock.

Grr. I'm so sick of Dell constantly pulling down good deals. Was hoping to snag some points for music, but no such luck. Anyone else have a source for slightly-discounted MS Points?

@bgbopper yah just redeem the code they all work the same..i use the points for both my zune and my 360
@ladysoleil amazon is going to be the next place to get it for like $3-6 off

@bgbopper, @mechwar420: actually, not the case. The accounts being sold on e-bay are just a gamertag that you can recover, and use the points off of. They are not cards with points.

You could buy from the zune marketplace using the same account, but it would not be tied to your current account.

@rmogstad youre positive on the ebay one being recoverable gamer tags. In the description it doesnt say anywhere about being a gamer tag, but just points. If thats the case I sense a paypal dispute being opened.

you can gift points so you can send points from one gamertag to another. you have to gift from windows live id's not gamertags

@ladysoleil: Um, well you need to be on the lookout other places then- this deal has been live for 2 days already and posted on other deal sites... I got in 2 days ago. It's not that they pulled down a good deal- maybe they sold out of the supplies they had since it IS a good deal.....

re: ebay- yeah almost all the good prices on points are preloaded accounts and the stipulations is almost always you have to use it within x number of days. No thanks- can't use points for Zune that way since they are for the live user not the console and the DLC you may have will only get the console license, not both console and user license which means if your HDD dies, or your Xbox dies you loose the DLC you got through one of those.

@rroberto: What other deal sites do you watch? There are so many out there and I've found some incredibly mediocre ones...

@rroberto: Not attempting to be supersnarky, just have gotten burned by Dell in the past. And it's great that you have the free time to dig through multiple deal sites, but I really don't.

The 'cards' offered on eBay aren't actually cards: they are new Gamertags that have 4000 points on them. You have to spend those points within 7 days otherwise you lose them all. And if you ever lose that Gamertag, you lose all the things you purchased with that 4000 points. Although the sellers sanction them as legal products etc, there's something a bit fishy about that arrangement. For $10 more you can buy something that, to me, gives a bit more security. Getting $50 worth of points for $37 is a pretty good deal imho.

i bought a few of the ones on ebay under the impression that they were legit cards like it stated on the ebay page. im going to send him an email asking if he will refund me my money under the fact it was false advertisement, otherwise im going to file a complaint.

A FEW of the ones on eBay are cards. It usually tells you in the item long desc if it is an actual physical card or a gamertag account you have to recover - you have to be careful. Send a message to the seller and get them to tell you if it is one or the other. That way, if they tell you it's a card but sell you a gamertag you have a strong case when you file the dispute.

I suspect a lot of these people create email accounts with the Gamertag name they plan to sell. They then get on online survey sites that offer credits/rewards for filling out online surveys, subscribing to mailing lists, etc. They then cash in the credits from filling out those surveys for Microsoft Live Points (you can earn 800 points every 1-2 hours - and they expire in 7 days) and then sell those Gamertag point accounts on eBay.

Be especially careful: the password they often send is the same as the one they used for the initial email account so they can steal the Gamertag back from you at a later date.

i didnt think anything would be wrong. i contacted them saying this is not what it is described as and that either get me real cards or refund me. i was civil. the seller has a great score, so i have a feeling they will be nice about it. we will wait and see though. i knew i shouldve just bought the dell ones from the beginning. oh well...

note - for reference, because I didn't see anyone else mention it, normally the cost in dollars for 4000 points is $50.
