Sorry if this is not the right forum to post, but I was ordering the Xbox One S Minecraft special edition at microsoftstore.com [microsoft.com], and on the checkout page, i was provided with the option to use Microsoft account balance to pay for it.

It says it will charge immediately if you use such balance.

All those Xbox credits just became a lot more valuable, considering we can get them at 10%~20% off and from Bing rewards.

Wonder if this is a limited time thing with the X pre-order or a standard thing that should have been all along.

It's been like this for a while now, so it's just something they took forever to implement.

I've got a few unused 1600 MS points cards back when those were still a thing. Will those work as credits?

Maybe those of us that thought it was dumb since MS owns Xbox bitched enough to change their ways. I didn't know it's been "a thing" now since I never go to the MS store because they didn't allow the use of xbox cards.
Agreed. I think it's since they got rid of Microsoftstore as a website and it's all Microsoft now.

I thought those expired in terms of being redeemable but the last time I looked I couldn't find it. Try to redeem first and if it works it'll add $20 to your account and then be usable.

They will be converted to Xbox credits with some expiration date if you redeem them now i believe.

I have hundreds of Xbox credits I got from various ways, and i converted some bitcoins to Xbox credits (yes Microsoft supports adding account balance via bitcoins), so i have enough balance to buy the new console now. Smilie

Awesome! I had around $900 I've stockpiled in MS credit with 20% off deals, so this means 20% off an XBOX ONE X. Done, and ordered! Thank you, sir!
