Xbox Live in a foreign country

I bought my xbox a few months ago in the US and brought it to a country not included under xbox live. The xbox came with a month of xbox live subscription which worked just fine but i later found out that you cannot renew the subscription or purchase anything from the marketplace in my country.  I'm going back to america for summer next month and wanted to know if i can just purchase an xbox live card and an xbox microsoft points card in america and redeem them in my country? Or do i have to bring my entire xbox to america, purchase live and then bring the xbox back with me? 

any info is greatly appreciated. thanks

Since you have a US account, the cards purchased in the US would work. However, keep in mind that if you do want to download anything from the marketplace while you're in your country you will run into region issues. Many items will not download if your account region and your physical location don't match.
