Payment option not authorized

Hello all!  My Gold ran out today, and the Credit Card I used to use was cancelled, so naturally, I added my new card.  When I went to add it, after I put in all my info, it said that "Payment was not authorized, choose another payment method" or something along those lines.  No big deal, I just went to the store to get a card instead, but they were all out.  So for my last resort, I tried on, to which every time I tried to add a credit card, I would get signed out, or my session timed out.  Is my account suspended or does Microsoft just not want my business?  Any help is greatly appreciated.
