I must be dumb. Got the app setup, added the boost, went to Microsoft to buy Xbox credit, it didn't work. Just paid $25 for $25. I had to fund the card to get it to work - linked to my debit card.

For you guys getting it to work, are you funding the card first? Or can it debit directly from the linked source?

Should work either way you mentioned.  The issue that could have happened is buying too fast after applying the boost, I usually wait atleast  2 minutes and force close and reopen the app - espcially if I applied the boost over mobile data, the app works better over wifi.

 

As for the charge, click the clock icon in the righthand corner in the cash app to go to history, hit that xbox credit transaction and submit a claim for missing boost

What's the charge showing up as? Xbox or MS? I'm guessing the latter.

So I have to open a debit account and get a physical card to add 'boosts'?

I downloaded the app and linked my debit card to it, added $30 to cash app. They give u a virtual card and I put that on my psn account and used it to buy some games and I still have over $7 left after the boost

I added funds to Cash App before purchase. I imagine that's the whole reasoning behind the percentage off, since you are transferring funds they can then invest to make themselves money.

 

Surprised that it actually works if you just use your Cash App debit card when it is just linked and you don't have funds. No bank works like that for debit cards.

Decided to give this a shot but I just get a "transfer failed" error every time I try to add cash to the account with my debit card.  EDIT: working now.  Boost worked when I added $25 to my PSN wallet using the Cash App card.

Yes, charge shows MS. I put in a support ticket as suggested. 

 

It seems like people are having consistent success with PSN, but Xbox kind of depends on how the transaction is processed.

Just add it to your wallet.

Click your avatar, click Payment Management, click Add Funds, pick the $25 one.

Pretty sure Google Wallet worked that way with the physical card. It's very very similar.

I bought a dlc through Xbox console and it worked. Is there a spot to buy space bucks on the console? It didn't like my web purchase before.

Anyone did an Xbox GC purchase via MS' website recently and receive the Boost? 

Wondering same.

So I've added about $125 in $25 increments to my PSN account today. Boost worked right away every time.

Now I'm getting the "! An Error Has Occurred. Please Try Again" message whenever I try to use CashApp card as my funding method.

Anybody have this happen -- and know a workaround/solve?

Thanks!

On the website? Try it on your console or the mobile app instead. I had to switch to my PS5.

Just said screw it and tried with a $10 gift card.  Cashapp appears to have only charged $7.50.  Picked denomination from https://www.microsof...q7ttc0k63h/002G and checked out.  Gonna remove the boost, re-add and try again in an hour or two for more than $10. 

 

If not purchasing a git card (and buying a game direct) you can likely also get 7% back via BeFrugal as well. Referral link (we both get $10) if anyone is interested or just check out befrugal.com.

So I added $25, ordered a card with a dumb tree I drew on it.

Maybe it's my phone settings or something, but when I hit the empty space below the card (nothing's there at all), that's when it lets me know that there are boosts I can add and what they are)

Edit: do you have to wait an hour or just till the boost shows up again?

Thanks - let us know on the follow-up orders.

My first 2 worked with Xbox charges - the third didn't and was a Microsoft Store charge. All used same link you shared. Maybe YMMV?

Ok. Now the console is giving me the error message, too, after four purchases.

I'm not seeing  a way to add wallet funds via the mobile app.

Anybody want to enlighten an idiot (me)? Thanks!

2nd purchase, which ironically was actually for some DLC, for some reason came through as microsoft.  So yeah, unfortunately it appears this could easily be a YMMV depending on if it is reported as microsoft or xbox to cashap...

Just got the dreaded listed as Microsoft $25 at my fourth one. Ugh

Edit: Now I had one cancel saying I didn't have enough money to pay for it but I did, way after buying. uh oh

Gift card was fine, it was buying actual game DLC that didn't go through.  I threw a support ticket into cashapp noting that xbox.com purchases always go to microsoft.com so why did one work and not the other (I also figured with less than 24 hours to go on this boost I wasn't going to be revealing a loop-hole they could easily close in time remaining).

Didnt work for me either for xbox. Added $20 to my cashapp card. Activated the boost. Then used my cash app card for checking out on microsoft.com. got charged the full amount. And checking the card it took the full amount. Didnt factor in the 25%. Listed as Microsoft.

Meh

It took several hours to show up for me. I didn't do anything that I know of but it did eventually show the boosts

I keep getting messages my sister wants to send her $5 over Cash App.
(And nope, she's not fucking getting it.... )

How do y'all even add boost. My cash card finally came in and after a number of errors on the app and waiting days for support to get back to me the card seems to be activated now. Can't seem to find the boost options though. From the card tab press the 3 dots and nothing. It's weird

Have you linked it to a bank account or any other form to load money onto it?

I have it linked to my debit card? Not a bank account but I think it can fund it all the same. Plus I have $20 in my cash app account

Do a screenshot of the page with your card on it (obviously edit out the numbers/name), should be right under that and say "add boost", at least for Android it's that way.
