Micro Center is selling Microsoft's 1600 LIVE points cards for $9.99, and the 4000 LIVE points cards for $39.99... I purchased three of the 4000 point cards today, and the cashier _did_ have to get authorisation from his supervisor (apparently they weren't ringing up correctly and had to be adjusted) but all the items DO have sku-correct price tags on them for the above prices and it was confirmed to me that it was not an error. This was at the Houston location.

If this is a repost, I apologise. I don't have time to search it up properly at the moment, on my way out the door.




EDIT: If you are looking to buy or sell these codes, we now have a thread for just that purpose.

Still sounds like an error until someone shows it's an advertised price. Doubt other stores will have it at that price

Damn, my Microcenter is a good 45 mins away from me. Last and only time I went out there was when they had the $400 pro 360 for $200. Be nice to save on MS points, but thats too much of a drive for me.

I suppose if I go over that direction anytime soon, but doubtful it will be those prices and if it is they're probably all gone anyway...

If someone can pick me up a 4000 card, I'll send $25 snail mail.

Why? Micro Center's had some really low prices before (like The Beatles: Rock Band for $40 the week it came out). It could be a mistake, but it could just as well be legit.

Local Micro Center ( Santa Clara ) says 1600 = $12.95 and 4000 = $39.99. Not too bad of a deal. Thanks for the heads up!

Great. Now it's YMMV, which means my store won't do it at all. :lol:

Too bad the 4000 isn't on sale

You can join their little rewards thing and get either a 4 gig USB stick or a 4 gig SDHC memory card for free.

4000 pts + 4 gig USB or SDHC for $40+tax :O

I don't know why people still bother with this, no one ever, EVER, picks up stuff for other people...yet there are always tons of people begging in every thread. It's annoying as hell.

Some people do. Just because you're an ass doesn't mean everyone else is, too.

Actually, when some store in the Mid-west sold No More Heroes + Red Steel for $15, some CAG went out and picked people up some, so...

Shove that in your pipe and smoke it. Now who's post is annoying as hell?

There shouldn't be. I know I haven't ever been charged tax.
Never settle for full price unless you have no other choice. ;)

Honestly, I'll pay a very reasonable amount for either. I really need some points! It's so hard to do W@W matchmaking w/o any DLC maps.
