4.0 out of 5 stars
Good, but frustrating, 15 Mar. 2014
I've bought these a few times, the items plus points are that it's convenient (can't buy direct from the Xbox marketplace using a debit card) cheap and safe (the numerous "instant points" sites on the web strike me as being very suspect, Amazon is always a secure place to buy)
This would be the ideal way to buy points if not for one irritating aspect - you are not guaranteed "instant" credit, the codes arrive as promised, valid and working, however it is only AFTER purchasing and clicking the Get Code you're hit with a message saying "please wait while your order is processed - this usually takes less than a minute" it tends to stay on this screen for 3-4 mins before hitting you with this beauty.
"Sorry, processing is taking longer than expected.
This order may take up to 4 hours to process but usually will take less than an hour.
Please do not re-order this item."
The code WILL land in your email within that time scale but this isn't really made clear before you buy.
If you want credit but aren't in a hurry - 5 Stars.
If you're on the penultimate chapter of a Live Arcade game and want instant points to jump into the final one - 4 Stars.
Overall - great way to buy credit.
