In this video, I’ll explain what you can and cannot purchase with an Xbox Gift Card. Your Xbox Gift Card works just like money on the Xbox online store and the 25-digit code can be redeemed on your console or at Xbox.com. In addition, a Windows Gift Card works exactly the same as an Xbox Gift Card.

Once you redeem your gift card, you can use it to buy games, movies, TV show, music and apps from any Microsoft online store, Windows online store or Windows Phone store. But there are some limitations to what you can buy.

First off, your Xbox or Windows Gift Card cannot be used to purchase an Xbox Live Gold subscription. Microsoft just doesn’t allow that. To buy Xbox Live Gold, you need to use a credit or debit card from your console or at one of the online Microsoft stores. As an alternative, you can buy a physical Gold card at a retailer.
If you are on an Xbox One, you can’t use an Xbox or Windows Gift Card to purchase Xbox 360 games or any other digital content from your Xbox One.

Another thing you can’t do with your gift card is buy physical products from the Microsoft online store. This means you can’t use your gift card balance to buy items like laptops, game controllers, phones, tablets and other products.

So if you were given an Xbox or Windows Gift Card, you will not be able to use it to buy Xbox Live Gold. Instead, you need to get the actual Xbox Live Gold card or Gold prepaid code. Gold subscriptions come in one, three or twelve month subscriptions and you cannot use an Xbox Live Gold card to buy anything else except a Gold subscription. I hope this clears up some of the questions regarding Xbox gift cards.
