Good or bad?

The only reason I like the points system is because of exploitable contests where I can get them for free. I personally would prefer to just pay directly through paypal rather than using paypal to purchase points and then using those points to buy what I want. It's gets rid the annoying problem of having useless amounts of points leftover. Ideally they should have both as an option.

What's with the flood of 14 day trial codes on eBay? There must be some promotion out there giving them away, but I bought 2 for $1.09/ea.

They probably expire at the end of Nov or December and don't stack.

I believe you can use the code SQRLUVIO at Amazon to get $2 off 400 MS Points codes right now, making them $3 instead of $5.

Just tried this on http://www.amazon.co...e/dp/B008J35KS2 and it didn't work. Got a "This code is not valid" error.

That sucks. It was working just a couple of hours ago, but looks like it's dead now.

A $1 discount? How is that even considered a deal?

The good card deals that come by run out so fast - when you need to get one right away even $1 or $2 off is better than full MSRP. Or, take the risk with shady ebay resellers.

A dollar off is still a dollar off. You want to pay a dollar more? Go for it. It's not a good deal, but it's a deal nonetheless.

Nope, but that's since I don't use facebook and didn't want to bother making a fake account. But plenty of people managed to get codes.

I have 240 MSP points from a Dance Central game. It say it's for songs, but people in that other thread are using a 'songs code' for other things, it seems. So I don't know if song codes are only for songs or if they're 240 points for whatever. You want it?

Nah that's okay. It's just points that you redeem in order to purchase a song so whether you spend it on the a song or not is up to you.

I'm still able to do it, but I might get lucky every ten refreshes. Fortunately it happened while some items I wanted were still on sale.

Oops. Looks like I can't connect at all now. Oh well, at least I got the two games I wanted.

It came from the first Dance Central packaging. Check your PM. Let me know if it works!

Usually there is not. In my own experience I have been able to redeem a 48-hour trial CARD which displayed an expiration date of 2007 -- years later in 2009.

Input the number into your console where, after verifying, you are given the option of Redeem Now or Cancel.

$35 - $40 for the 12-month card and about $5 or less for each of the 1-months.
