Not happening at this point because the amount of Points you can purchase is a marketing ploy.  If you buy 1400 Microsoft Points and buy an 800 Point Map Pack, you then have 600 Microsoft Points left over.  Then you go and buy a simple 400 Point costume pack; now you have 200 Microsoft Points left over.  Then you go and buy an Avatar hat or 80 Points, now you have 120 Points left over, which buys next to nothing.

But you still have Points left over and the psychology for most people is they'd want to spend them and the only way to do so is to buy more Points.

Point systems like this exist to always have left over to encourage consumers to buy and spend more.  It's an old marketing trick.

I've been able to evenly use every points card I've ever purchased.

Said marketing ploy don't work on me. I know what I want well before I buy the points. I just wait for said item to be on sale before  think about spending points
