Besides converting points into money, the website also shows the total cost of everything currently in the marketplace. It would cost $1,256.25 to buy everything in the Marketplace right now.

Only caveat here is if you get a deal on points...ie, the Overstock "$15 for 1600 points" sale, or if you used the BB GGC (although then you have to factor in tax). If you're getting your 1600 point cards for 15 bucks, it's actually....

Picture packs - (50-80 pts) - $0.46 - $0.74
Theme (150 pts) - $1.41
XBL Arcade game (400 pts) - $3.70
XBL Arcade game (800 pts) - $7.48
XBL Arcade game (1200 pts) - $11.22


May not seem like a lot, but I felt a lot more comfortable paying under 8 bucks for Street Fighter than I would have paying 10 bucks for it. Lumines for 11 and change will be nice as well (unless it costs 1600 points, anyway). So far it's been more than worth it to go out of my way to stock up when they have a deal.

Is/of = 20.

x/1600 = 20.

Change the 20 to the actual value of the points ($16.15 in my case after tax) to get the true value of your points to dollar.

BesyBuy has them for $20 and then you can use the $5 off GGC coupon. It doesn't get much simpler, and you can buy them whenever you want and not have to stock up.

All I've bought is 2 1600 point cards from BB for $15 each, and I don't think I'll need many more for awhile.

Sorry for such a newb question. But the BB GGC, they are located in the game section? So if I want to buy 2 Arcade point cards do I need to buy 2 GGC cards and then use each one on to get the $5 off?
Thanks.

You can find them in the video game section, usually on a shelf, or on a rack with all of the different giftcards. And yes, you need one for each purchase.

this points system seems pretty fucking retarded, except for street fighter, that rules.
