Just a quick question, has anyone been able to do this? Can it be done without using a credit card or the special pre-paid cards? I'd trawl the internet for the answer but I've got a severe headache and was hoping the nice peeps at x360a could help me out! :)

99% certain that you cannot. Otherwise I would've done it.

From my search, it all points to no. You'd think you could, since msp are "money".

I'm also curious as to how this works.

Same I never heard of it. Be a good option tho I guess for when you got spare points or whatever.

They don't...it's not possible. One can only get gold via a credit card or by a prepaid card. MS points can't be used.

Amazon.com will have deals in the year for really cheap gold

Yay for blatantly posting wrong information! :Bounce:

Just confirming what others have said, you can't buy gold w/MSP. At least not yet. Would be nice of them to add it in the future though.

Nope. Either use a credit card, or buy a subscription card at a store (my preferred method). Save your points for something nice, like some more map packs or some COG armor for your Avatar :)

Someone actually asked an xbox ambassador this months ago. I have the log as I was the ambassador who was asked.

Xbox Support said not at this time. Either they're serious or joking after I showed them the log.

i know you can trade with others but it would be pretty hard

No you can't. If you don't know the answer then don't post. You have never been able to get Gold with Microsoft points.

You can't "trade" with people. The only thing even close is being on a Family plan and even then the main gamer tag can give points but that's it.

50/50.

You cannot buy gold with MSP. But you can usually find gold cheaper elsewhere. Don't be a fool and pay full price.

I wish we could! It's around $8.99/month for Gold atm, that's like around 600-700 MSPs for a month anyway.

If Microsoft allowed people to use points for gold, I would be sealed. But this is impossible to do.
