Read This Before You Buy an Xbox Gift Card

  If you're looking to give an Xbox gift card, there are a few things you should know. Keep in mind that this isn't your typical gift card (more on that in a moment). Xbox is a wonderful way to spend money because it allows you to do so much.

What can you do with your card?

  • You may purchase complete games online for Xbox and download them right away, allowing you to enjoy them immediately.
  • You can also get apps, movies, television shows, and other devices with a digital wallet.

You can't use your gift card at a physical Microsoft Store, but it works on Windows, Xbox, and the Microsoft Store online.

You can use your Xbox gift card to purchase just about any entertainment-related goods, and it's one of the most popular options for teens who have an Xbox console. If you're running late (like most people),

It's a quick and easy method to send a present even if you forgot to get it at a store.

Xbox Gift Cards Are Not Your Ordinary Gift Card

Microsoft understands that if you're shopping for a gift card as a gamer, you want to take your entertainment to the next level. Games, applications, films, and television programs are all entertaining on their own, but they're even more enjoyable when accompanied by appropriate accessories.

What kind of accessories will you be able to purchase?

  • Controllers
  • Headsets
  • Racing accessories
  • Console accessories

It's not just about the controller. You may also use your voice to navigate through games and apps, or make calls on PC. With Xbox, however, you can truly personalize your gaming experience.

You'll be able to design your own custom controllers through the Xbox Designs Lab. This is fantastic for a player. Consider yourself or the recipient of the card. Everyone has their own style, hobbies, and preferences.

When you order an Xbox gift card online, you can use the Design Lab to design your own controller, which will include the following features:

  • Billions of color combinations
  • 32 NFL team options
  • Forza Horizon 4 Victory Lap
  • Shadow of the Tomb Raider inspired options
  • Soulcalibur VI inspired options

Full control of a wireless controller is possible through Game Design Labs, allowing users to make their own controller that matches their own preferences. It's the ideal approach to "get in the game."

These customizable controllers feature:

  • Compatibility with Windows 7/8.1 and 10
  • Compatible with Xbox One
  • 40-foot range (Xbox One S)
  • Remap buttons through the Accessories app
  • 3.5mm stereo headset jack
  • Textured grip

And you can buy it with your gift card.

What Types of Accessories Can You Buy With an Xbox Gift Card?

The Xbox or Microsoft Store lets you purchase a range of console add-ons. All of these attachments will enhance your gaming experience, and they may also assist you in creating the ultimate gaming setup.

What can you purchase?

  • Vertical Stand. Do you want to keep your Xbox One S vertical? You have a vertical stand that allows you to do so at all times, and it will also keep your console upright.
  • Mount. There's also a Kinect sensor mount available for most televisions, which should work with almost any of them.
  • Wall Mount. Forza Designs offers an incredible Xbox One S wall mount that allows you to put your console on the wall. Enhanced security and safety from drops, kicks, and even spills are among the benefits of a wall mount.
  • Game Drive. You may get a number of game drives from the shop, such as limited edition versions and SSD drives, which provide fast speed choices.
  • Microphone. Do you want to be able to hear your games clearly? With the Turtle Beach microphone, you may start streaming with studio-level audio.

As you can see, there are a lot of things to buy with your gift card. It's a sort-of universal gift card that lets gamers to enhance their gaming experience in numerous ways.

However, parents or anyone that does not game may not realize the value of having a larger capacity game drive. They may not recognize the importance of a microphone and live streaming on Twitch. For gamers, these accessories make games more enjoyable and pleasurable.

What About These Region Restrictions You Keep Hearing About?

If you're buying a gift card online or for someone else, be wary of the region in which you're purchasing it. Assume the Xbox gift card has a value of £75 and is from the United Kingdom. If you try to redeem it in the United States, you'll be unable to do so because you're in a different zone.

The region restrictions are inconvenient, but what many people have done is the following:

  • Switch your account to the UK region
  • Buy the item that you want
  • Switch back to the US region

You'll just need to power down the console and restart it after changing regions. It's a simple and fast method to get around these boundaries. However, if you're buying someone a gift card, you'll need to inform them about the limitations and what they must do. In an ideal world, you'd buy a card from the proper area that doesn't require switching zones.

For yourself, I recommend buying whatever region has the cheapest cards and switching regions.

Note: Xbox’s customer service recommends this exact action if you get an error when trying to redeem your card.

You may also cancel your subscription at any time. If you want to cancel, all you have to do is change the location on your console. However, if you want to simply switch locations on your console, this is a fairly big hassle.
