Alright i just got off the phone with the microsoft store, and read them your quote and he said that what you are trying to do is not possible, you can stockpile your credit but that Credit will only be able to purchase Digital merchandise and can Not ever be used for something physical such as a game or Console ..

I was able to regret buying that mega blocks halo toy with credit when ms store had it for $10.

#Fakenews.

You can currently purchase physical goods using your account balance. I've only ever added Xbox cards to my account, and I just tested by separately putting an Xbox One S and disc copy of Halo 5 in my cart and it allowed me to select my balance during checkout.

Unfortunetly, I couldn't buy a digital gift card using my account balance. I suppose that prevents hackers from cleaning out your account directly. I lost interest in testing physical gift cards, but the idea of using store credit to have store credit shipped to me is humorous.


Now if I could just get the stupid facebook coupon to pop up...

Really so the guy i talked to was either full of shit or did not know what he was talking bout wow . Do me a favor and see if it will let you put a console in and use that credit ?

He didn't know what he was talking about. But to be fair, they just started allowing it. I tested it with a console and I could have purchased with credit

That's fine, you can think what you'd like. I just checked for myself by going through the purchase process on an Xbox one on the Microsoft store. It would let me use my account balance, which is all from Xbox cards.

I find it hilarious that you'd quote a random guy online who was only speculating from what he'd heard to MS support

Ah what .?  If you read what i said in my post you will see that i, as in me the person typing this message just got off the phone with the microsoft store, so where you got i was quoting some random guy getting info from microsoft store i have no idea .?  Also what you were trying to do sounded good but i wanted to make sure it was possible and when the employee told ME that it was not i was trying to help you and people reading this so yeah .!

I was the random guy you were quoting to MS. It's all good, I hadn't even tried before you said anything. I had just been told it worked

I think he was full of shit and did not know what he was talking about. 

I tried this very thing, tossed a Xbox One S into my cart and it would have been fully funded by my MS credit balance.  

 

So, yes, you spoke with the village idiot at the MS store customer service.

I redeem the codes on Xbox.com or through the Xbox app. You used to only ve able to use the credit on digital MS purchases, but recently they allowed physical purchases from the Microsoft store. I would be buying the Xbox X day one regardless, but there are a lot of ways to get discounted Xbox credit so I'm planning on getting some credit every week until it releases

Slightly off-topic to the original post, but on with the recent discussion, I've got a question. What's the appeal or advantage to buying an Xbox from Microsoft versus a retailer?

You can get the MS extended warranty on the console when purchased direct from them.  Only other way to do it is buy it in-store at a retail MS store or take the console you just purchased in the last 30 days into a MS retail store and have them give it a once over.  MS extended warranty covers the console for three years and includes the bundled items like the controller (and Kinect, if it was bundled with the console). 

 

Also, MS sometimes bundles games and/or GCs with purchase of a console. 

 

Plus, people can get Xbox GCs at a discount, such as this way, so it can be a cheaper way to get the console.

Huh? Like you think MS might not honor your purchase? If they accept account balance as payment, you'll get what you pay for
