My friend just gave me a £50 Xbox gift card. I have a US Xbox Live account, and my current account balance is USD. Will I be able to add a gift card with foreign currency to my account?

You can't redeem codes that are from different region than yours. If the code says that it can be used worldwide, then I guess it's possible.

no it wasn't

ms points has always been region locked the only time you could change ms points for another region was thru the region migration tool for your OWN account

gifting is not a supported service

if you choose to use the system in a way it isn't intended

you do so at your own risk

you cannot transfer ms points or currency

you will have to look up yuour own etailer

gift cards has always been region specific

you will have to find your own method of giving him a code

messenging is not intended for trading

using a out of region account probably caused issues with downloads which is why its never recommended he probably has since then migrated to UK to his actual region

MS points were always region locked

always has been always was
