Assuming the code insanity ends soon... what is everybody using their points for?
So far I got the Rally Expansion for Forza Horizon and Shadow Complex. Thinking next about Deadlight and Battle Block Theatre...


Shadow Complex. A must own.

Going to buy one or two more in case I need more points after my demos are done downloading and I end up liking every damn game I try. Then I will try to go clean and not go to therapy. ;)

Why not? I'm banking on MS converting them over for next gen purchases, and I an get a ton of games for almost nothing. When I see a good deal on anything I know I'll eventually use, I stock up. Wholesale FTW.

How did you get all those points without getting "investigated"? Did you pay through credit card or paypal?

What do you guys think are the chances of them throwing the banhammer from XBL for this?

Ordered 18, got locked out. Switched to a new coupon code a few hours later and ordered about 12 more. Got every single code I ordered. Used credit card, not PayPal. Worked on both Chrome 27 and FireFox 21.

Best deal EVAR.

Slim. The worst they'll do is cancel the transactions.

They've allowed it to happen for too long. They would have to ban thousands and that would be a great business choice right before there next system comes out. They probably love the fact people are also spending thousands.

Talked with support this morning, got a nice representative fortunately.

RJ: Hi! Thank you for visiting the Microsoft Store Website. My name is RJ, how may I help you today?
You: Hi, I had a question about my order. I ordered several Microsoft Points back on Saturday, but I have not received them nor have they shown up on my account. They have been taken out of my bank account though. I received about 5 of them, but 6 have still not come through.
RJ: I'm sorry to hear that you are having an issue with your order.
(INSERT PERSONAL INFO HERE)
RJ: Thank you. May I know how many copies of Xbox Live did you order?
You: It was 1200 microsoft points, and it was 8 on saturday. I only received 2 of the codes and 6 have still not come
RJ: Thank you, Jason. You are correct. I can see here that you ordered 8 copies of Xbox LIVE 1200 Microsoft Points on 5/25/13. Two of them went through already. I do apologize but I can see here that the 6 orders are stull pending.
RJ: This is a known issue right now. We just encounterred some issues with the system.
RJ: What I can advise you Jason is to wait within 48-72 hours. We are currently working on the issue right now.
RJ: Once the issue is fixed and your 6 orders went through, you will receive the email confirmation with the codes.
You: Ok. As long as it shows up on your side. Is there any transaction numbers I can get for those in case I need to contact Microsoft again?
RJ: Yes, don't worry Jason, I will be monitoring your orders on my end. And I will send you an email if there are any updates. I'll provide you the reference number for this conversation/transaction.
RJ: Here is the reference number (REFERENCE NUMBER HERE)
RJ: Again we really do apologize for the inconvenience and we appreciate your patience and undestanding regarding this issue.
You: Thank you, I appreciate you looking into it.
RJ: You are so much welcome. Please just keep monitoring your email for any updates.

Hey, as long as it shows up on their side. I actually ordered 3 yesterday as well and they went through, so eh. I'll try back in 2 days if they do not come through.

I lost a year of Gold because of it, and I'm blacklisted from the store. But I'm always unlucky with shit like this.

Congrats to those who haven't incurred their wrath.

My XBL account was locked. When I called to get it unlocked, they unlocked it, but simultaneously cancelled my Gold membership. I haven't had success getting it back. Thank God for the $1/month thread.

Best part is I haven't gotten one code.

Wow, that was some pretty good customer service there! Can't argue with that.

At least they are not being dicks about and tell you "yea, you guys are ordering WAY too much and are jamming up our shit. So you'll be lucky to get your orders." Because lets face it, there are some companies that do have customer service like that.
