Where's the best place to buy American Microsoft Point codes online?

I have an American account but live in the UK and would like to put Microsoft points on it. I need somewhere safe and want the code emailed to me.

Thanks!

I'd rather have the code emailed, most of those seem to be shipping which means i'll have to wait a while for them.
Plus the prices are in Dollars, hard to work out the prices in pounds.

Thanks for the suggestion though.

Ebay.

My GF has an American account and we purchase codes through ebay, they're always emailed to us and generally in under an hour, sometimes in minutes. We've only done it with membership codes though, simply ask if the codes are accepted worldwide or UK only (because I know UK point cards aren't, tried it)

I got one from ebay only a couple of weeks ago and they emailed me the code pretty much an hour later.

You could always look up on google a currency converter?

If you live in the UK and place your postcode/address before searching on the American version of eBay it will change those dollars to pounds, I've done that many-a-time. Or I think it's if you sign in to the US eBay using your existing account.. I forget. But it does convert it all for you using the current rates.

eBay. Just make sure the guy has 100% feedback and has sold some points. I buy mine on eBay all the time.

Also try and avoid guys who sell silver accounts with pre-loaded points. Just make sure you read the description.

You can try amazon. You need a US billing address though. The code is emailed to you when you buy it. It's all discounted a tiny bit too.

I've been using it since 2009 and my friends before 2009 and we never had any problems with it. They will email your card within 5 minutes of your purchase.

Ebay is pretty good. And cheaper most of the time.
