Seems like every few months some a-hole posts something along the lines of "ZOMG WHERES TEH BETS PLACE 2 BUY XBL POINTS 4 CHEAP". Well, this time, it looks like that a-hole is me! :applause:

Do they still have sales on MS Points...? I ran out of points ages ago, and have been keeping my eyes open for sales, but I haven't seen a deal on them in ages. Oh, for the long lost days of my youth, when MS Points would routinely go on sale for 25% off at TRU or RCSS...

Ditto ... just ran out a couple weeks ago. It's hard to buy them full price when you just *know* there's a sale coming soon. Right? Maybe? .... Hopefully?

It is a good thing I bought 10 of them when RCSS was selling it for $20 last November!

He just bought them for his personal use. I bought 5 myself, don't see what the big deal is.

I price-matched at The Source, got 10 of them. Is there a problem with that? :/ I don't see the issue with buying large quantities of something like this...

More on topic, I to, am out of points. >.< A sale would be welcome. Sorry for not actually helping. >.<

How did I ruined it? It is not my fault if someone who bought 2 and felt it was enough for his needs only to find out months later, it wasn't enough! He is the only one to blame for his misfortunes.

It's called being greedy, a term I'm sure you're more than familiar with.

I'd rather reply to you then this dude with his panties in a bunch. Good for you for stocking up while there is a sale. I would call that "smart planning" over anything else.

So let me get this straight. Hording copies of games is looked down on but stockpiling cards isn't? Good to know.

Would it be bad if someone bought $100 worth of microsoft points via xbox live? How is this any different?

Although, I would be pissed if I was at that store and I saw someone buying all the points cards. Raging in fact.

Personally I don't mind someone stockpiling for themselves and genuinely using the points, but I think it is lame to purchase great deals just to turn around and profit off others.

I've got 1400 and 2800 live points cards that I'm willing to let go of for $18 and $36 respectively. PM me if interested.

I don't see it as greedy. I see it as sustaining my needs efficiently at a minimum cost.

That's a false comparison. By your standard anyone with a backlog of a few games would be hoarding. If I see a good sale on points I will buy enough points to last 6-12 months even if there's nothing I want right away because deals don't come around that often. Buying $200 worth of points is completely reasonable for someone that plays a lot of arcade games.

The point is, there's nothing wrong to hoard for personal use, or to help a friend(s), etc.

It's the people who buy in order to scalp them that should be grilled if anything.

Buying some to use isn't the problem, it's buying the entire shelf that's what people get pissed about.

Best Buy has an online sale right now and I was able to grab a PSN card for 15% off and I assume it would work on MS Points as well.

How were you able to order a PSN card? They show 15% off, but there is no order button, it just says 'In store only' and the button is greyed out.

That's interesting. They must have changed it. I ordered it right when the sale started and the button was not greyed out. The MS Points still show "Add to cart"

Yeah MS Points definitely still work. I ordered a couple 1400 cards for myself. Seems the PSN cards are the only thing they changed.

I agree with you there. Getting these cards for personal use is like making your money more valuable so you can buy more games at a better price. Nothing wrong there.

Why are you here? They've been looking for you at troll.com They are very worried about you Timmy.
