Transfer Microsoft Points??

Is it possible to transfer points between accounts? Say a friend wanted to send some?

Nope, You can only use them on the account you purchased or redeemed them to.

Q:Can I transfer my Points balance to someone else?
A: No. Points are designed around an individual user. Sharing Points or depositing Points into another balance is not allowed.

It would be a nice feature for gift giving or balancing out weird amounts of points. I assume it is not allowed for two reasons. So that pople cannot just transfer points to their account and steal them after phising someone's account that doesn't have a credit card on it. And to pevent people from just giving that extra 100 MS points they have to a friend that need only 100 points but doesn't want to spend $20 on a new card.

Agreed it would be a nice feature but at the same time would be abused way to easily

I just wish you could buy points for someone else without having to get a card. It's be a nice feature (especially around Christmas time) to be able to buy a bundle of points on xbox.com for someone else.

Nope i think you should be able to incase your friend wants to send you some as a gift like a gift points option. Or incase you need like 50 points and a friend has some to spare.

During the xmas season of 2008-2009 they ran a test program where you were able to "gift" points, but it was a brand new purchase of points, not a transfer, i'm not sure if that's still running thou.
