Anyone have experience of purchasing MS points or Live subscriptions directly through a website? As in, they send the codes to you through email. Which is quicker, and also means you have to avoid dealing with scratch cards and pointless packaging.

Also, they often seem to be cheaper too - I've seen a few websites that have 13 month Live subscriptions for under 30. Just not sure if they're reliable or not...

Heard enough woeful tales of people just not getting their codes or codes not working to put me off. They are cheaper sure, but no one seems to have a rock solid word-of-mouth recommendation on a supplier for 'em that doesn't take the piss.

www.gamepointsnow.com seem to be quite reliable with plenty of good reports, but the prices are a bit steep. Plus they have to send you a letter or something first before you can use Paypal.

This seems like a cracking offer - I think others have used that site before, and I wouldn't mind waiting a few hours for that price. MS points prices are crap though.

Not used them, I've heard they're not too reliable.

I have however used Jasper1675.com, first when he was an eBay trader and last week. I ordered a 13 month code at 11:27 and had it in my inbox at 15:03.

Cheers Whizzo. A quid more expensive, but probably a small price to pay for a more reputable service. Would it be wise for me to order the code now and then activate it later? I'm not sure if I want to go online just yet, but I want to catch the Braid deal before it runs out on Monday. :)

That's up to you, probably not worth the 400 point saving on Braid if you're not going to use it for a while though.

I'm planning on using Live Gold very soon, mainly for SFIV. :)

Ordered from Jasper yesterday, received the code in about 15 minutes! Top service. A few other sites do have it for 2-3 cheaper, but reading around it seems that none are as fast or reputable as Jasper.

This is the link I used, btw - it is a referral page, and so has a small discount for the subscription:

http://www.jasper1675.com/newuk12gold.html

At the moment it's 29.99 for the 13 month subscription, which is a quid cheaper than the main site.
