Pre-paid visa or master card

Can you use pre-paid visa or master cards to buy xbox live gold memberships from the dashboard? I don't want to get a credit or debit card and I don't wanna use a pre-paid card to buy an xbox live pre-paid gold card at a store like Wal-Mart. If so then which kinds can you use to make the purchase? I just need to know if I can use a pre-paid visa or master card.

you can however you must register billing info on their site and allow reoccuring charges.

also you do need to call xbox support to turn off autorenewal if you do not plan to refill the creditcard

declined payment will leave you owing an outstanding balance

Some prepaid cards will not let you sign up for repeating subscriptions. Instead you can buy a prepaid card at 7-11, GameStop, EB, Publix, Target or WalMart, or buy a prepaid online game code at http://www.amazon.com/Xbox-LIVE-Month-Gold-Membership-360/dp/B0029LJIFG and their 19% discount off list ain't bad... but make sure to choose the Online Game Code, they will deliver the code to you on the screen right after purchase instead of waiting for the card to arrive in the US Snail.

You need a prepaid credit card that is refillable and requires you to register it somehow, either online, or ones from a financial institute.

Otherwise it's just considered to be a gift card, regardless of it being visa or mastercard, and it wont be acceptable.

Let me tell you exactly how to do it:

  • Register on the site (of the Pre-Paid Visa or Mastercard)
  • Now, go to PAYPAL, and add that credit card. (They will charge you $2, but reimburse you through paypal)
  • Go to the xbox site, and click Paypal as your payment option
  • A couple of tips, when you add your credit card to Paypal, you will have to wait 24 hours for the transaction to appear on your account, and with that transaction there will be a 4 digit code that you have to enter to confirm it!

Please do not bump old threads.  Prepaid Visa's on the Microsoft site are very hit or miss. Most of the time they will not work due to the expiration dates.
