Cheapest place for instant microsoft points

Hi guys, i need to get some microsoft points so i can download Trails HD, where is the cheapest place to get them instantly. Rather than wait for delivery.

Thanks.

I know, that's why i asked for help as there are a lot of dodgy ones as well, or ones that you have to wait an absolute age for.

I was hoping for some better responses than these, some recommendations on places other people had used.

If you don't own a credit card, how are you going to pay online?

It's not advisable to use a debit card on the internet. No comeback if anything goes wrong.

Just buy from a firm that's been around a while, there are plenty of them out there that are well known. Not worth paying a pound or two less from an unknown site.

https://www.gamepointsnow.com/ is pretty sound and efficient.
I found live-codes wasn't as instant as they liked to think they were.

That's not the case at all so no need to misinform people- using a VISA card you receive identical protection whether it is a credit or debit card.

This is incorrect. Depends on your type of debit card. Visa debit cards let you claim for non delivered goods and faulty stuff in a similar way to a credit card. The protection is not as good, but is fine for any web based orders.

A quick google shows this.

I think a Visa Debit card is a very good alternative to a credit card for those who wish not to have credit cards. (I have both but tend to use debit a lot for online purchases).

Visa credit cards DO offer better protection (as do all credit cards) but there is not that much in it for average purchases imo.

I have used a place that happens to be a competitor cause it also sells consoles and stuff. They are cheap and email you instantly though.

I always use gamepointsnow. The email arrives instantly, with a scan of the card and the last time I bought points they were £1 less than normal at £16.95 for 2100.

They want £17 for 2000 points, other online stores such as the one above sell 2100 for around £15.80. The 12 month sub can be had much cheaper from other stores too.
