Most stories about it point to this :

http://www.insidemob...crosoft-points/

The problem is no one's ever heard of this site and the second is no one else has an inside source.

Even if they do get rid of points, that doesn't mean there won't be a sale on cards(see itunes GC sales every other month).

The old bridge used to be called the new bridge.

I THING Toys R Us has points cards on sale for 15% off this week. I was there, but forgot to confirm the MS Points price as I was only buying PSN cards (which are confirmed to be 15% off). Nothing was marked, but I took my $20 PSN cards up to the register and they rang up for $17 each.

Was originally posted in the TRU weekly ad thread, but in case anyone missed it I figured I'd post it here.

EDIT: Confirmed by sylveranking that they are on sale for 15% off. Thanks!

Hey guys. I was thinking of converting my Gold over to a family plan. Then my son and daughter can have gold accounts. I would only have to pay $5 to do it for the year. Does anyone know the cheapest way to extend it past the year? Would it be best to buy a cheap 12 month and 3 month cards and convert them into a family?

Thanks a lot for the heads up. Quick question, do you think leaving my facebook open for an hour and my netflix for the 10 hours will meet the requirements or would I actually have to "use" the apps?

YMMV, but I believe that when I switched my family members from individual to Gold, they were given 1/4 credit to the family plan. Since $100 a year covers 4 people, even if you find $30 deals you're not going to save money as you'd spend $120 for 4 indys vs. $100 for family. If you can find 1 year gold cards for less than $25, then add them to the indys before going gold. Otherwise, don't bother.

I can't say I know what would happen if I tried to redeem a indy plan now that I'm family, but I suspect MS might just deny the card. Don't want to risk scratching a card and then having to return it. I have a 1 month card I got when I had to have one of my 360s repaired, so I've thought about testing it with that card. If it didn't work, I'd just give it to a friend since the resell market for a 1 month can't be that great.

Right now, my gold indy is good til 10/13. So, to convert would cost me $5. I was thinking of letting the gold family expire in a year and revert back to a indy. Then add 15 months on the cheap, then switch over to a gold family again.

So basically, buy Fez for 800MS, watch a few videos and get 300MS back? I can do that.

Ok, here we go:

Amazon Local has $25 voucher to spend at yoyo.com for $12. Works in Salt Lake City, my guess is it will work for most areas, otherwise just buy one from Salt Lake City, I've never had problems buying from places like Los Angeles on Amazon Local Deals before:

http://local.amazon.com/salt-lake-city

Yoyo.com has 1600 and 4000 MS Point cards for retail price, and free 2 day shipping if you spend over $25 for the month of May. I bought two 1600msp cards to qualify for the free shipping, the code worked just fine. So $14.98 to yoyo.com and $12 to Amazon Local ($26.98 total) for $40 worth of Microsoft Points.

I have never heard of yoyo.com before, but if Amazon Local is vouching for them I think they'll be fine. I already got my order confirmation and estimated delivery date of Wed., May 9.

Also, they gave me a referral code to share (TYLE6862) which should give new customers 20% off their first purchase. Might not work with the Amazon code, but it's worth a shot.


Thanks, needed a points refresh. The referral code didn't stack with the Amazon Local voucher.

LOL, I was too late on this one and wasted $12. 4000 point cards were already out of stock, and 1600 point cards went to limit 1 and then to unavailable as I was trying to check out. Maybe I'll be able to use it on something before the code expires in three months, I guess.

1600 point cards are now magically back in stock, and it let me order 2 of them and use my code. Maybe somebody at yoyo got a little overzealous earlier today?

You should be able to get your money back from AmazonLocal. If they cancel my order, that's what I'm going to do.

Yeah, just sad to miss this deal. Now the 4000 won't even show up and the 1600 are out of stock again. I was just on the phone with them and they said both are in stock. wtf........

Fred Meyer has a "buy $50/$100/$150 in Home/Electronics, save $10/$20/$30" coupon good between May 10th-12th, which effectively brings point cards down by nearly 20%. The trick is to get a 4000pt card (for $49.99) plus some penny item in Home to tip you over.

I posted the coupon over in another thread, where 4 games there are currently 64% off:

Is this something repeatable for other people? If so please share.

Glad to see this thread is still alive. Here's a contribution:

Two current promotions for free months of Gold:

1. www[DOT]xbox[DOT]com/en-US/live/promotions/ign-gold-for-free
Good May 8- June 6 and only for current Silver members only

2. M&Ms promotion (not sure when it ends)
Text: MMSKINECT to 97979
Reply to it: Birthyear 1989
Reply to it: Token 4 code 4
Redeem on the M&Ms site for 1 month 25-digit code

The texting promotion does not work with AT&T cell phones apparently. Would stack with the previous promo, and any Gold time.
