well there was a 3month and 1600 ms points card combo but that was 2 codes on one card

you sure he bought you a subscription card

1600ms points are 20bucks

3month card is 25-29bucks depending on your region

the combo card was 40bucks

there is no mistaking that one

im not sure what he bought, i live on mexico, and he lives on denver, CO and i've no see him online... i was thinking, and maybe the problem could be that when i type the code, i select the option add points instead reedem code, could be that a problem ?

Hey there Moriitoh! Are you asking if, now that you have MSP on your account, you can use them to purchase Gold time? If so, the answer is unfortunately no. To get Gold you'd need a prepaid card for Gold or another payment method on your account to purchase it directly through the console. Let us know if that helps, thanks!

well MS points only work in the region they are purchased in

even if he buys ms points from the US they will only work in the US accounts

mexican accounts and prepaid codes including MOST subscription cards only work in the region they are purchased in

 

if you choose to try and use the migration tool there is no way around the 90day use

also region locked content will not be available to you and you forfeit any region locked content from mexico

 

 it is always best to buy codes from your actual region

i donno why people keep thinking gifting is a good idea

coides and ms points are region locked to prevent issues like this

 

if you used purchase points that means it charged on your payment method

 

there is no garentee that the gold membership card isn;t region locked

you may try and redeem the code by clicking redeem code and entering the code
