UK Xbox Live Points Card - will it work in the US?

Hi! It's my best friend's birthday today and he's in the US, while I'm in the UK. 

I wanted to get him some Live points but apparently you can't do that online if I'm in the UK and he's in the US, we both have to be in the US for that to work.

So my next question is, if I buy a UK points card and give him the code, will he be able to redeem it?

Thanks :)

Sorry, MS Points codes are region specific.  It's a nice idea to give your friend points for his birthday.  Why not send him the money via transfer and he can buy them on his end.
