Batshit crazy time for overlapping sales on xblm right now. For those who got back from Thursday night with 1600 points cards, before the ten year sale ended, this is like a steam sale on cocaine. And cocaine is a hell of a drug.


And things like this, even when it's not quite at this level of insane, are why people who want Microsoft points done away with are idiots. If/when they switch to real money only, you will never see opportunities like this again.

Whatever paltry 80 points or whatever that someone may have left over after a purchase is nothing compared to how much you can save when something like this comes up.

Yea I've never understood this argument either. Do people not realize that if they had 80msp left in their account if they did the same transaction in real money it would still be the same $1? It just completely baffles me at the stupidity of the complaint. IF they switched to dollars instead of points they would still make you buy them in $5 increments so you would be in the EXACT same predicament.

I think that is just way too logical for a lot of people to understand.

*high five*

My sis was able to get me 2, 2 for my bro, and 10 for my other sis (she writes about & review games for work) all for $9 each since she gets discounts working at Target. :applause:

I still have hella unused points and with 2 more 1600 msp, I have no idea what to get lol. I might get Bully, I don't know yet lol.

I've never said it should be removed, but it should obviously be an option to pay with real money like they currently do for Games on Demand games. Hell, they should even offer exact change for both points and dollars so that you could get some use out of leftover points. Call me an idiot if you want, but I don't think there's any reason for anybody to be against this sort of idea.

I had no clue this points deal was even happening and there's no way I could have gotten in on it if I did, which always seems to be the case for these sorts of deals.

Well there would BE a point against this (at least for other people the US)..since we have the option for GoD t use MSP instead of money this would really bother me since whenever a game goes on sale all the price changes are never correct over here if they convert the € sale price to MSP...we (almost) always have to spend more € and more MSP then americans with their Dollar....so if I don't want to set up a Hungarian Account to get all my digital content much cheaper on there this would be a worse idea.

For Example Resident Evil 4 is 1600 MSP when you convert it to MSP right? Wrong! We have to pay more than 1600 MSP if we convert the price to MSP over here...if it had the same option this would also be true for DLC or Arcade Games. No Arcade Game would be 800 or 1200 MSP from the beginning, we would always end up paying more than that <.< so no I don't want this option thanks!

As for leftover points...there is not such a thing...you can always use them with your next purchase when you have more points and you don't have the same amount left after plus if you're using xbox rewards you get sometimes odd points like I did with the 5% payback (310 MSP back)

You still can! Do it! It's good until tomorrow @ 11pm. I'm not sure which cards ring up right, I only saw some at the register section with the avatar girl on it, but most everyone says they ring up $10 automatically.

If Target gives you any grief just grab an ad and go to Wal-mart. I brought 3 of the avatar-girl cards to the electronics section register with the Target ad and they PM'd it no problem. $30 OTD.

I'm so tempted to buy more, there's so many out there! Who can say no to a 50% off everything sale? Not this guy :)

I didn't try going because I figured they'd have been all cleaned out. Places actually still have some?

Do any of the Forza packs have new tracks in them? Or is it only cars added? This question goes for Horizon or Forza 4. Not that big of a car junkie, but new tracks would get me to buy some DLC.

I only walked into Target at about 8 o'clock at night and walked out with 7 points cards for half off. :D I could've grabbed about half a dozen more; I'll contemplate it tomorrow after I see how much I've charged to the Redcard recently (spoiler: too much). Now for an XBLA shopping spree!

If you plan on going to score some, try to find one of their weekly brochures if you can. None of the 1600 cards available automatically rung up at $10 at my store, but I had no trouble convincing the cashier to match the ad.

For anybody on the fence about the Mass Effect 3 Leviathan DLC Sale, buy it now. The Arrival DLC for Mass Effect 2 was only on sale once, and if you missed it, too bad.

I picked up the Raven Strike DLC and Leviathan from the one day sale. I'm hoping Microsoft puts up Dragon Age 2 DLC or more Mass Effect 3 DLC on sale later this year.

How is the Metal Slug game that's on discount through S and M?

And is S and M still broken? Or will it register that I purchased the game or not?

yeah, Australia is in the same situation, nothing is ever the same in games on demand.
It's good the Hungarian marketplace works here also, but not for every game.

Not sure about the electronics section, but I know down here in Hanover they had a good number still in stock when I left at 5pm. Snagged 10 (across two purchases) with no issues.

Filled up my redcard as well, but only bought 4 cards. I could have gone for more, but didn't. At least I have enough to get the Black ops 2 season pass. :D

Another Target note worth mentioning: If you can't find 1600 point cards in Electronics, they can very commonly be found by the registers.

BTW, added cheap prices for disc versions of "Dead Island", "The Gunstringer", and "Tiger Woods 13" to the OP, just to make sure nobody wastes their money on the Games on Demand versions. :lol:

I love the comparison between the BF deals of Xbox Live and the Microsoft Store. On one hand, you have the same type of deals you see all year long (not even comparing to past years); on the other, you have the best deals available.
1 John 1:7,9
But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.
