I too will pay reasonable prices for either kind of card. Please PM me after hooking up the people who asked before me. :)

The item number on my receipt is 312272-- this is for the 4000. The 19.99 tag on each item shares the same number. Best of luck to everyone, and no, B&M stores do not tax these cards. Cheers!

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

True but having to wait and see if the other member is going to come with the exchange expeditiously doesn't really seem worth the trouble most the time. I'm sure there are exceptions but I would hesitant to do it, but I guess sometime like a Paypal transaction would ease the sender mind.

Yeah, especially if you have to mail out something. Points however should be easy to sell so not as much risk.

If you buy cards at a B&M store, are you charged tax?


Despite what the other 2 people said, I have been charged tax on Microsoft points at Target. I think everyone is supposed to be charged tax on them when bought at a B&M store. However many stores or employees get them confused with gift cards and then don't charge the tax.

I wish he would. I'm willing to pay upto $30 for a 4000 point code. He can pocket the $10 difference.

I found this post rather funny. If you are or are not supposed to be charged tax for MSP cards I am unsure, I know for PSN cards you're not, but I've never bought MSP cards before in a store. The funny part is you saying that an employee can choose when to charge tax or not. They scan the item and the system does what it needs to do in terms of tax, it is 100% out of the employees hands.

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

One of my friends bought points at Fry's this one time and got charged tax.

Back on topic, awesome find op!

Sales tax laws are determined by state/county/municipality. It probably depends on where you live.

I don't have most of these B&M places around either. Microcenter, FYE, Fry's, Hastings, Cotsco(sp?), gamecrazy. Sucks sometimes when you see all the deals flying around.

I think I remember reading somewhere that it depends on your state if you're charged tax on point cards or not. I'm pretty sure I've been charged tax for MSP cards in MD before, but not taxed on PSN cards.

if someone can give me reason to go to microcenter tomorrow than I will. I'd be willing to pick some up for a few cags if it is legit. But ehhh, 2% chance this is legit. Probably similar to that TRU deal with like 2 stores clearing out the old cards.

Definitely YMMV, guess I should take a swing by in the am. If my store had them at that price I'd buy every last card they have.

Guess I could go to Micro Center before hanging out with my friends tomorrow to check on this (bought RB2, points gone lol). Need to see if they have some stuff in stock since I'm going to start ordering parts for my computer the middle of this week anyway...

can anyone confirm a madison heights (detroit) location?


I'm only about 20-25 minutes away. Maybe I'll stop by in the morning. I'm building a PC at the moment so I'd probably find something else to buy there anyway - I'm not overly confident I'll be getting any deals on points. We'll see.

Cause you're probably closer than I am to MicroCenter. Make it happen and hook me up, fellow SoCal CAG. :)

Wouldn't not buying all of the cards be a better method of "hooking up the locals?"
