At the moment there is no option at all to use Microsoft Points to purchase an Xbox Live subscription. I assume when having your local currency on your account instead of Microsoft Points once the fall update hits all consoles, you will be able to.

Afraifd no way to buy with ms points.

This will not be an issue in a few months as all ms points are being discontinued – currency must then be used on Xbox live i.e. £ or $ etc.

Any unused ms points will be converted to cash.

You were never able to use ms points or currency

Its easy if you read the card it doesn't mention anything about subscriptions

All dashboard deals are subscriptions therefore needs a renewable payment option especially if it is a promotional deal

Currency is not a renewable payment option

If you want pay as you go subscription you must avoid promotions and the convinence of doing it from your console and buy prepaid cards

All online services don't allow subscriptions to be bought by currency as it is not compatible with subscriptions
