Xbox live - paying with xbox balance

Hi;

I purchased some xbox live gift cards and have redeemed them on my account with no problem.

i had planned to buy xbox gold and some games out of the balance - when I go to xbox gold subscription, the account balance shows but will not let me select.

is there any way around this?

maybe to phone up and get balance converted ?

thankyou

Sorry but you can't use your account balance to pay for xbox live.

You would need a credit/debit card,paypal account or a live subscription card.

Did this solve your problem?

Xbox live subscriptions as implied with the name subscriptions requires a reoccuring payment option as it has to be able to be charged multiple times

If you want one time use you must use a prepaid code
