i would watch out for ebay scams

if it is cheap ms points or membership cards its probably most likely stolen accounts in which case i doubt you'll appreciate a baned console or cops at your door

Microsoft charges the original price for the Gold Subscriptions, and MS Points.

The retailers usually put them on offer for more attraction and they gain profit from selling so much MS Points/Gold to the customers.

I don't really recommend buying from eBay.

I would tell you to buy from Amazon or Walmart.

Good luck and thanks for understanding.

Of course people on Ebay would sell it cheaper, It's sold by people trying to make money, if they made it the same price as retail, which is the same price as xbox is selling it for, then nobody would buy it would they. Like there is already a risk that they could send a fake code, so to attract people to buy it they would lower their price. The reasons why they would sell it is completely unknown for sure. They might have robbed people of their codes and trying to resell it, or they were disappointed in their codes and decided to sell it. Either way, it's only cheaper because people want to sell it.

And, they have to compete with Amazon's discounting to US customers: http://www.amazon.com/Xbox-LIVE-Month-Gold-Membership-360/dp/B0029LJIFG (make sure to select the Online Game Code, otherwise you wait until the physical card arrives in the mail.)

 

Of course, if the random eBay seller sends you a bogus code, who stands behind it? Ebay will push you into a Dispute Resolution process, which takes weeks if not months, and does not guarantee that you get a refund. Therefore, they have to be cheaper than Amazon.
