Xbox live billing is stupid

I would just like to point out how stupid the Xbox live gold billing system is. I just went out and bought a $25 gift card for XBOX LIVE and I can't use it to purchase XBOX LIVE SURVICE!!! I can't use the money I just put on my account to by survice for my account? Then what is the point of even having xbox gift cards in the first place if you can't even use the for everything Xbox related.

you can use it for everything Xbox related it says right on the card cannot be used for subscriptions

Subscriptions and promotions even tell you you must have a renewable payment option 

It's not rocket science

Answer

You have never been able to use gift cards/account funds to buy a xbox live gold subscription.

They are used to buy digital content,games,dlc,movies etc.

You need an actual xbox live subscription card,a credit/debit card or paypal account to buy a gold subscription.
