So the hiccups started when I first set up my new xbox last week, it wouldn't take my Visa card. Oh well no biggie I didn't need to buy anything right away anyways.
Now today I want to buy some DLC. OK let's get some payment method sorted out. Visa still doesn't work (website says my number isn't valid?). Mastercard works, so OK we're fine for now.
I buy a 12-month Gold membership just fine. Then shortly after I go to buy some points and it's not authorized. WTF? I try on the website, no go.
I add my paypal account. That links just fine. Try to buy points with it...not authorized. FFS.
I guess I'll have to buy points at a brick and mortar for now because this billing system is such a POS, and no games on demand either until this gets sorted out (tried to buy one to see if it was just the points, no go again with CC or paypal).
