    I have a U.S. account and I want to get a Gold Live! membership for it. Problem is, I can't buy the membership card from the local store, since it's for European accounts and I can't use a credit card since it won't accept a European CC ... In short: I'm looking for a reliable website, where I can buy a 12-month Gold card and get the code delivered instantly on my e-mail. I know there are plenty of these, but just to be on a safe side - do you recommend any of them? Thanks. [​IMG]

    There are many cheap Xbox Live prepaid cards on eBay. I got mine from there.

    Perhaps a helpful temper around here, with a paypal account, could help you out. Purchase it from the store and you pay them the cash... then you get the code [​IMG]

    Your best bet, in that case, is to try out the Trading Forum, as I would assume there are some tempers already with a paypal account. (http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showforum=157)

    Just in case, check out the paypal site to see if your card will work (as I've never used a Euro-CC before)

    eBay man. I always get my membership/points off eBay because it costs less than in store, and no taxes [​IMG]

    "got it within 16 hours"?

    Either this is a blatant advertisment to get us to go to gamehubs, or you're incredibly slow at clicking the 'pay now' button. Last time I tried it took me 2 minutes to get my live membership [​IMG]

    Err... never used paypal before, have you? If he ends up using eBay, he would pretty much end up using PayPal anyway...

    Anyhow, for the education of those who have not used PayPal:
    https://www.paypal.com/ca/cgi-bin/webscr?cm...erWorks-outside

    Your e-mail address becomes your... let's say: payment address. biscuit@email.mail then sends $20 to nin10do@email.mail using PayPal. Suddenly, nin10do's paypal account (which is connected to your bankaccount, or what-have-you) has an extra $20 on it! That's as much information as there is between you and me. Don't want to use your personal e-mail address? Make one... at gmail.com. Then delete it after this or keep it for future transactions.

    After PayPal tells BOTH of us that the payment has been accepted, I then e-mail KE8C-J8DD-H67A (A live code I just made up) to nin10do@email.mail. nin10do now has XBox Live through the magic of the interwebs.

    Could I have sent you a bad code that won't work? Sure. That's why I hateloathe eBay. I like dealing with people... there are even some GBAtempers that I wouldn't mind doing business with [​IMG]

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Ok listen:

    There is cheap prices for microsoft points. If you think there are a rip off you either are poor or haven't ever bought stuff from the market place. £17 is expensive for 2100 points which can get you some good themes, dlc or xbox live arcade. Stop being so cheap.

    and don't call me son.
