The time has come to purchase some points for my daughter, but there are some things I don't understand:
I looked at the family Gold package and I can't see any indication of how many points you get for your 12 month subscription. So it's just a set of privileges and no actual points?
There's nothing else that really grabs me in the advertised menu for 'Gold membership', so it seems like a lot of trouble to go to just to get points that all the family can use.
Then, when you click on the 'subscribe to Family Gold' button, the thing that I'm actually interested in (distributing points to family members) is not ticked! Is this a glitch in Microsoft's sales system?
(was hoping to post a screenshot here, but I can't see it as I write this so looks like the chat box didn't accept it)
So it seems my options are:
a) Buy the points in my name and then let my daughter use them by letting her sign in as me.
b) As her parental controller I can temporarily give her permission to buy, so the credit card is then used under her xbox ID, then go back and block the permission again – is that what most people do? Still seems a bit of a runaround..
Many thanks, Mr Anderson
