I wasn’t sure where to post this but I’ve seen other posts in the Trading Outlet that are trying to be helpful.
If you buy from the Zune Marketplace rather than Xbox Live you can get 1200 points for $15 rather than 2000 for $25. I did this today and was able to redeem it for MVC2.
Browse to http://zune.net/
Click sign in at the top right hand corner
Enter your Live e-mail address and password
Click My Account at the top right hand corner below your Live ID
Click Buy Points
You will have to sign in with your Live account and click through a few checkboxes to create a Zune account. You do not have to download the software.
Hopefully this helps some of the poor bastards like myself.
