It seems Microsoft enabled some kind of new protection for redeeming gift cards in Turkey and Argentina. Many users get an error message that it is not possible to redeem the cards at the moment or something similar. But there is a working solution to bypass this check.

Try the following steps which should work:

1. Pick the desired game from Xbox-Now and follow the link to the Microsoft Store. (It will be very nice if you would use the Xbox-Now link that I can get a small commission!)
2. Use a VPN of the specific country (Turkey / Argentina) after you logged in without (like NordVPN, ibVPN, etc.)
3. Press the buy button (since you're already logged in, you won't need to share credentials with the VPN operator)
4. The small purchase popup will offer you various payment options and there is a small link at the bottom to redeem a gift card (see screenshot in the help section in the menu) (redeem.microsoft.com won't work anymore!)
5. Now enter the gift card code and the purchase should go through! If your balance was not enough, you will be asked how to pay the rest. If you have more cards, you can do the same process over and over again.

Now everything should work.

Have fun!

Division 2 is just around the corner, or has even been released today. If you are still looking for good offers, you can contact two members of our community.

LeoMeinTeil (from Argentina) and Oleg (from the Ukraine) can send you the game as a gift code. Just talk to them personally and negotiate a good price for yourself. You can contact Leo via the comments below or via Whatsapp (+54 9 11 3418-3414) and Oleg by mail (xboxsalesx@gmail.com).

Who is still uncertain or would like to exchange experiences: In the comments you will find what you are looking for.

UPDATE #2: The password requirements were lowered and you guys just have to create passwords with 6 chars and without the need of symbols. Also the captcha is now a bit shorter and easier. If you still encouter problems, just refresh the captcha and generate a new one.

There are also some updated translations, but we are not complete yet ;) 


You've waited a long time for this. I really have received countless requests. And now, after some internal testing, I want to make the registration accessible to all users. But please note that this is beta code. We will then see how the feature works with a large number of users and whether everything works well, or whether various errors still occur.

For now, the registration part is only available in english! But the translations are in the works and will be available very soon!

 

So what are your benefits as registered user?

  • Create a watchlist to always have an eye on favorite games and their prices
  • Create an "I own it"-list, set your purchase prices and always see a "what have I actually saved" price (just because we can)
  • Remove the owned games from the results, to only see what really matters
  • Create price alarms. You will get an information email if the price is reached somewhere.
  • Activate price alarms for any game on your watch list to see if even these are cheaper somewhere
  • Remove special countries from your results permanently, there is no need to set the filter again each time.
  • Activate Auto-Login and you are always logged into your account on that device. (This needs to be set on each device!)

By the way, this is only the first phase of user functions. I'm currently working on more and even cooler functions, but unfortunately I can't tell you more at this point. But stay tuned!

If you find strange bugs somewhere, please contact me.

Known Bugs:

  • During translation migration: You need to set any of those symbols for your password while registering and one number: @#$!§$&=%

Last week's blockade seems to be over! Today I received some comments and confirmations that shopping with gift cards is possible again in the Turkish store. Also Floxer has managed to get it working again, after a strange error message from the past days. Probably Argentina works again, too. Feel free to post in the comments, if you managed to get it working, too.

Our partner Oyunfor sells you Turkish gift cards at 1:1 face value

UPDATE: It seems that the Revolut MasterCard is no longer working for international purchases.


Great News for the weekend! It seems possible now to purchase everything and everywhere across all Microsoft Stores! (Yes, all!) 

As reported in our comments on Xbox-Now, Microsoft now accepts MasterCard credit cards from Revolut for every country. Until now, Revolut had always offered cards from Visa that were not suitable. But MasterCard seems to be accepted without any problems and can be used for any country without any problems. This makes it as easy as with gift cards but without any additional fees.

Maybe there is a special partnership between Revolut and Microsoft? Recently Revolut has found many new partners. 

Note: You do not use any trick or anything similar. The credit card created by you and for you will be accepted as a normal means of payment. Nothing else is necessary.

Thanks to everyone who posted about this in the comments, sent mails or reached out to me on other ways. Many people will appreciate it.
