That's great and all, but the problem i have with the "bundled" ms points is, you don't save any money.
That's not even worth the trouble imo, they should make it 4,000 points for $40, and actually make it worth our time.

Personally I've been waiting for this. I buy them all in big chunks like this online, and when you start buying all the arcade titles, throw in a tv show and movie rental they get sucked down fast as hell.

I agree with Monkey, the points are $6.25 for 500 no matter how big of a bundle you get them in. You should get a discount if you buy a bunch at one time. Adding a new option is lame, I could just buy two of the 2k bundles and pay the same right now.

The more points you buy at once should equal cheaper price. I've bought I think 3 cards for 20 bucks each. All those points are gone and I get 1250points not even 1600!!

Yeah M$!

They make Gold subscription cards cheaper for bulk time...why not MS Points? Doesn't make much sense.

i work at a video game store and i can buy stuff at cost (the price it costs us to order a game, not the marked up price we sell it for). generally 360 games are 10 dollars cheaper at cost, and 1 year xbox live subscriptions are only $40 as well. however i believe i only save 2-3 dollars on point cards buying them with my discount, so usually i just add points to my account with my checking account, much easier.

i dont use a credit card to but MSP i just buy cards, so them comming out with this is a good thing because i now dont have to buy like 3 cards for $60 to equal the price of this one

I agree the more points you buy at once the cheaper each point should be.

Takes you a little bit to complete it and then they want you to buy a add on.

If you have a best buy near you just keep an eye on the sales they have for xbox accessories because the points cards do qualify as an accessory

If you preorder Halo 3 you get 1600 MS points for $5.
I did this with RSV and COD3. Both ended up being back ordered so I canceled my order with them and bought it elsewhere. BUT they ship the MS point cards right away so I got them anyway.
