Can parent purchase points for child account without family GOLD?

I just want to purchase points for my son (underage obviously) using my account. Is there no way to specify a payment method for an underage account or transfer points to them without a family GOLD account?


Thanks.

Can I do that online as well or just from console only? Sorry, I'm just a little confused...

EDIT: need to clarify a litlle - I am wanting to purchase the 800 points form Microsoft directly or on console under his account. Thanks.

It's alright I'm here to try to help you out :). You can do this online and on the console itself. You'd need to make sure you are logged into your son's account on the XBOX.com website or on your sons XBOX Live account on the actual gamertag on the console. Let us know if you need anymore assistance.

Figured out the problem, I was trying to use PayPal. When I tried a CC it worked.

Thanks for the help anyway!

Hello, yes you can do this. Family account is only necessary to distribute points that are already on the primary XBOX Live gamertag, but you are talking about purchasing the points on your son's account directly, there is nothing wrong with that.
