So, bit of a dumb question, but anybody know if this applies to digital codes as well? Or is it physical cards only?
I'm actually pretty sure it's digital codes only, they don't ship you a card. I got mine in an e-mail.
damn bought a $15 xbox gift card yesterday at Target for 10 % off I could of saved an extra $1.50
Well the good news is you can get $5 credit with a promotion they're doing. You just submit a photo of your receipt. It's under the Sales and Special on the web store.
I have a question that's rather dumb. I remember this baffling me the last time I had Microsoft credit, but...how do you actually use it? Unlike PSN and eShop it doesn't have a balance for you when you're shopping. I also can't select it as a payment option on the web store. I forget if can you use the balance on the web store, or do you have to get on the console itself? I seem to remember at some point I just had to hit buy and it would pop up asking me if I wanted to use my account balance or something inane like that.
