Local currency split payments.....how?

Microsoft's guide to the transition says I can split the payment between the money in my microsoft wallet and a credit card, but when I try to buy something that costs more than what is in my wallet, I cannot select the microsoft money. Am I missing something or is the Microsoft money just the same as points pretty much?

"Can I split payment between my local currency and a credit card?

Yes. For most purchases, if the amount of local currency in your Microsoft account is not sufficient to pay for the content, you can charge the remainder to your credit card or PayPal account. PayPal availability varies by region. However, you must first select to purchase using your credit card or Paypal account and then you will see the option to use the remaining currency in your account. Split payment may not be an option for all content purchases."
