You should of bought those pre paid Xbox live cards, buying those Vanilla mastercards aren't guaranteed to work 100%.

How much did you put on the card? The thing with those cards is, if you put $100.00 on it...they take an administrative fee off the top...so really you are getting less than you actually paid for.  Ans when you try to use it to buy say $100.00, you may only have $95( not sure what the fee is...check the fine print on your card/website)...then you will have to call the 1-800# on the card, and they will take like 2 bucks off of that.

also you have to register billing info on the card holder's website so your billing info matches that of the card

Try buying from a site like http://www.live-codes.com, once payment has gone through they email the code to you in a few minutes. Gold subscriptions are region free so if doesn't matter where in the world you get them from.

That site isn't available in Canada or the USA.

"You can only validate your telephone number if you live in the UK, the Republic of Ireland, Spain, Greece or Italy"

Which is why a said a site like that, I'd quite happily search for one available everywhere but I thought the OP seemed sensible enough to hunt for one on his own now he is aware of their existence.

Usually with those cards you have to register on their website before doing online payment and I know a lot of companies who flat out won't take them.
