MS Points Transfer to Another Account on Same Console

My friend donated his console to me and he gave me nearly 1200 MS points however I cannot find anyway to transfer them ( found something about gifting from major nelson) from his profile to mine. Any quick way to do this?

It would require you to get a family pack, have both your accounts in said pack, with the one with points being the "parent" and then you could give the points to your other account. Not really worth the $15 in points though.

MS Points Do Not Transfer.

I am disappointed in this answer for a number of reasons, I see that this is an easy way for the company to handle virtual currency but why not enable users to gift people add-ons or games(not the actual points)? Would it not be as simple as authorizing the licensed product to the particular account? I know that it is not much money but it seems like the end users really get the short of the end of stick.

because accounts cannot be shared or transfered so your method is a violation of the terms of use

as stated in the code of conduct

whats to stop you from gifting a game for ms points or money if gifting was possible

If Steam does it I do not see why Microsoft cannot do it, just throwing that out there, not that it will get very far though!
