How do I buy games on sale from the site and download to my xbox 360?

First off, why are there games on sale that i'm only able to buy on the site and not on the xbox dashboard? wth is the point of this? why aren't all sales on the dashboard? I'm trying to buy Alan Wake, but whenever I click "download to xbox 360" I am forced to verify my email address with a code that doesn't exist because it is NEVER SENT TO ME!! This damn "code" has been in my way for many months and it's really pissing me off now. What am I supposed to do?

Sorry if this post is in the wrong place. I very rarely use the site.

I had this same issue.  I added my home phone number and have the code called to me now.  It's a much faster way of doing it.

Any games that are on sale in the marketplace would be on sale on both the console and the website.

Unless you are looking at the wrong region

Promotions only apply to the region that your website is set to

When you actually make the purchase you will get the correct price

You have to login into the marketplace with your account then set the region of your Web page to see the pricing in your region

to put an end to that "Code" problem go to login.live.com sign in and add either an alternate email or alternate phone number.. or both... once you do this on the website it will stop asking on the console.

I understand its a little tedious but all in all it makes your account a lot safer from hackers and protects your sensitive information.

hope this helps :)
