Cheap Microsoft Points

Searching for cheap microsoft points or even free microsoft points? I used to too and was often disappointed with the results.  The truth is that you can get cheap microsoft points and microsoft points for the Xbox to purchase content over the Xbox Live Marketplace like maps, songs, arcade games like Trials HD, Shadow Complex and Plants vs Zombies and even themes, gamerpics, games on demand and avatar clothing among other things you can buy with your microsoft points.  However you can also never get free microsoft points, sure you can sometimes sign up to a site and complete surveys and eventually if you are lucky redeem and get microsoft points but that is hardly free and you waste hours of your time and most are not even legitimate!

The thing is like everything if its too good to be free then it probably is too good to be free! However that does not mean you can't get Microsoft points at a good price and if you look around you can get a great deal especially from online shops like Amazon!

Buying Microsoft Points Online

As Microsoft Points are cheaper online you can find some excellent deals available. Some of these come from small sellers who send you an email with a code and these usually are safe but sometimes they are not and they can be a hassle as well as you lose peace of mind. I have used one such service myself for UK microsoft points called Cheap Xbox Live Codes and I have a review of them.

Your best bet is really though checking major retailers like Gamestop, Walmart and in particular Amazon who I would recommend most for good prices which are much cheaper than those straight from the points you can purchase from the Xbox Dashboard and arrive quick as well as you get peace of mind unlike the sellers who may email you a code.

You can even get instant delivery so you can use your Microsoft Points straight away.

What are Microsoft Points?

Microsoft Points are like the virtual currency of Xbox and Xbox Live and allow you to buy and download items to your console. People often use Microsoft points to buy DLC (downloadable content) like maps for shooters like Call of Duty and Halo, songs for music games like Rock Band and Guitar and Dance Central as well as new levels and whole game modes e.g. Fifa Ultimate Team.

The best use of Microsoft Points is probably arcade games which are like smaller versions of full retail games with a much smaller price tag and these are often better than some retail games even though they might be a tenth of the price! There are many brilliant arcade games you can buy and I have done a top ten.

You can also purchase themes, pictures and avatar gear and clothing among other things and it is really handy for any gamer to have a supply of Microsoft points for things like Deals of the Week and new games and DLC and can extend the life of a game dramatically!

Overall Microsoft Points allow you to buy downloadable items for your console and are a virtual currency.
