microsoft points no longer sold

hi about 4 weeks ago I bought Microsoft points in Tesco for xmas but when I was in game this week I heard the salesman say they no longer sell them but it's cash for cash to use on xbox. Can the Microsoft points still be used?

    Yes, your points will be converted to GBP when you apply them to your microsoft/xbox account.

    It can also be possible to get better value this way (by buying points instead of cash value) as cash values tend to be exactly what they are (ie £10 for £10 credit - although I did see one a few days ago that was £9 for £10 credit!) where if you buy the points cheap enough, you can end up with more credit than you would have gotten by spending the same on one of the new vouchers.

    Agree with this..

    M$ converting points to a cash amounts did away with how much of a rip off buying direct was,, and so places that still provide Points *can* work out to be cheaper given how they are converted from points to cash equivalent..

  • I panicked too when i started playing my Xbox again and had unused points from like 1 year ago. But a Google search confirmed that they were not lost.
