Converting aus MS cards to us MS cards

So, my friend leaves for the us tomorrow, and so a few of us got him 50 dollar xbox one cards for going away, because we knew he loves his xbox one. but since he will be in america, can the aus cards still work?? or is there a way to convert them from the aus dollar on them to us dollars?? as he doesnt want to waste all the cards

The cards are region locked to Australian accounts. You may need to call support, realistically he could add the credit to his Aussie account before he leaves and then when he is in the us change his account region to a us account. Whether the credit also gets converted is the question though. Id call just to be sure. He could also keep his account as Australian but he will be limited on what he can purchase as digital stuff is region locked.

Do not add the currency and then change regions, he will lose all the money: support.xbox.com/.../change-region

As Auswulf has said, you should be able to add the currency and still access the Australian marketplace when connected to the internet over there or spend the money before he leaves.

Ah thanks for the info Digital :) please disregard the swapping regions with the credit applied to your friends account. The other way seems to be the only way.
