Why would you pick them up there? Are they not available where you live? I'm pretty sure they don't work, though.

I am pretty sure they wouldn't work. I think if you have a U.S. account you have to use U.S points or if you have a Canadian account you have to use Canadian points, etc.

I may be wrong, but I think thats how it works.

Points seem to be locked to specific areas, HOWEVER if you have another tag set for the area required you can use them and whatever you spend the points on is saved to your hard drive for use on your main account.

For example i tested this recently with american points and account as adam miller wanted the ufc gamerpics, i setup a us account and bought 200 us ms points used them on us account to buy the ufc pics and was able to then use them on my uk account aswell.

Same goes for songs for rockband maps for halo etc etc.

Now Canadians are coming to the US to buy MS points! The poor dollar... What next, Mexicans coming to the US for cheap Viagra?

I would say that it worked since both countries are in north america. It's not like they are foreign.

I could be wrong all the way. Best best is to call or google it click the castle crashers for help.
