Hello There MrProcreate

 

Can I buy an Xbox Live Gold membership with the currency in my Microsoft account? The currency in your Microsoft account can’t be used to buy an Xbox Live Gold membership at this time. The thing to remember is that the currency in your Microsoft account can "ONLY" be used to purchase Digital Content and not An Xbox Live Subscription. It`s a subscription and it`s not a DLC Or a Game or New avatar Clothes and more. It`s a product. A Subscription.

The currency in your Microsoft account can

  • Rent HD movies and buy TV shows, and with Kinect, your voice is the remote control.
  • Download arcade and full Xbox games.
  • Keep games fresh with new map packs, new songs and workouts
  • Get new items and avatar props for your Xbox Avatar Profile

The thing to remember is that the currency in your Microsoft account can only be used to purchase digital content and not subscriptions to Xbox live.

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.
