How much does 1600 microsoft points cost on XBL Marketplace?

How much does 1600 microsoft points cost on XBL Marketplace? I am trying to figure out if it is worth it to buy 1600 microsoft pts from Circuit city. The going rate at CircuitCity is 19.99 with a 10% discount for going out of business. Does this sound like a good deal? If I remember correct. 1000 micro points cost 12.00?

Microsoft points are rarely on sale, so definitely buy it at CCity. Also, at my ccity, they were marked at 10% off but rang up as $13.99 so I got 3. Saved me around 20 bucks. In stores you can get 1600 for $19.99 or 4000 for $49.99. On live you can get 500 for $6.25, 1000 for $12.50, 2000 for $24.99, and 5000 for $62.50.

And remember that 160 pts = $2

400pts = $5

800pts = $10 and so on...

I remember Target had the 1600 points cards for around $15 sometime last summer. It was an advertised special that week. The price usually shows up every few months. Sales tax brought it up to $16.xx -- so just over $1 per 100 pts. Anywhere near that, I'd consider a "deal".

Did you not read our posts? Yes, it's a good deal, and you may be lucky enough to have it ring up for less than $18.00, like me.

The ones you buy at CC don't work. They don't have the license to sell MS points anymore. The ones I'm talking about are the ones that you see on the racks and are loose. Just like the iTunes cards. The ones that are in the plastic boxes that are packaged by Microsoft should work though.

Edit - Don't quote me on this, but this has happened to a couple of people over @ CheapAssGamer.
