I think you are missing the point. It's only $3 more dollars than buying a 12 month subscription card and you basically are getting a free game and messenger pad. My subscription runs out on the 25th so I am all over this deal. I already have a messenger pad and PGR4 is an alright game, but chances are I'll take my old messenger pad and PGR4 over to my local DiscReplay and trade them in and buy a blu-ray or something.


Ah, but 12 month subscriptions aren't really $50, at least not if you do even the most minimal shopping around. Amazon has it for $40 now, and it's been as low as $30 recently. I got a 12-month for, effectively after bing cashback, about $25 from walmart.com a short time back. So you're paying some $15 more for it going with amazon's current price, and given recent deals, you've overpaid by as much as $30.

Posted in the other thread, but I totally got a 1600 pt card with the K-Mart coupon an hour ago. Needed a manual override, but still good in Buffalo.

Ah, it needs a manual override? That makes it much more YMMV than I originally thought.

I'm going to KM to try the coupon in the next 30 min. I will post on here if it still works.

I got 1 1600 point card yesterday with it. Need one more for the current XBLA promo.

Not a bad idea. Consider $10 1600 points cards with coupon + 400 points back, it will cost roughly 1200 points for all Block party titles:

1200 - Scrap Metal
1200 - Toy Soldiers
800 - Perfect Dark

3200 points = $20 (Kmart 1600 point cards x2 with coupon) + get 400 points ($5) back. Sweet.

Deal is dead at Kearney St KM in Spfld, MO. Went to get a MS 1600 pt card and as I was walking to cashier in electronics a mgr came in and said not to accept a certain coupon. I walked by the counter and there was a copy of the coupon with "DO NOT ACCEPT" written and highlighted at the top.

Just tried a couple K-marts in Dayton, Oh and both times the coupon was declined. At one of the stores in Beavercreek they took the coupon from me after trying to use it.

From what I've read the message from corporate tells the store to confiscate the coupon!

This isn't a conventional deal, but http://getxboxcodes.com/ are selling 100 MSP codes. For $1. That means you can get 4000 points for $40, which is cheaper than usual.

Other than that the place has good sales sometimes (sold 12Months for $35 about the same time Amazon did) and some giveaways on their twitter, worth a check.

Is it dead already? I have 600 pts on my gamertag and have been looking for a place to aquire 200 MSP so I can buy Perfect Dark. I don't see an option to buy 100 MSP codes.

EDIT: Nevermind me. I found it.

If you type in "100 points" in the search box at the top of the page it will take you right to it. At least it did for me.

Microsoft store is havinga 40% off sale with coupon code CLR-MSFT-Games-40%. Not sure, but it may work for Live subscription cards ($4.99 shipping, though).

Doesn't look to work on Live subscriptions. The code comes up with this error.

Anyone else think it's odd that the card that they mail you, with free shipping, is cheaper than the online code they can email you for free?

How do I get bing cashback to show up for Walmart? I typed in Walmart on bing but I do not see a cashback symbol. Possibly interested in the 4000 points card from Walmart with cashback since it would mean really cheap music.

I think Bing cashback for Walmart is down. You can usually find them at http://www.bing.com/...ges/stores.aspx and clicking the stores that start with "W," but I'm afraid they're not listed for me either.

That's because a lot of people decide to buy online codes to get them at instant which affects the sales on the hard copy ones.

Anyone know if walmart charges tax on those point cards if you use ship-to-store? I remember when I bought a subscription card from them using ship-to-store, it counted as a gift card, which meant no tax.
