    I bought my Xbox gift card in another country than where i live, and it won't allow me to use ...


    I went to the states for Christmas and got an Xbox gift card. When I got back to my home in Canada, I tried to redeem my gift card but couldn't. It said that the gift card was purchased in another country so it will not work. Is
    there any way that you can bypass this, or can you not?

    :)

    Xbox live gold subscription payment overdue

    yes, but the problem is that my subscribtion is in another country because the gift card that I used was for another country's Xbox store, so now I can't use my credit card to pay because it's not from the country where my gold is activated and I can't subscribe
    to another gold subscribtion with my credit card in my current country becouse it says that I already have gold in another region.

    It's a really f*cked up situation I bought my Xbox gift card in another country than where i live, and it won't allow me to use ... :D

    Hi there,

    purchasing/using items from a different region then the one you are or your account is connected to is officially not supported.

    Changing the region might result in it working but there is no guarantee it will and could also result in other issues, so I would advise against it.

    Xbox live gold 3 month redeem code

    I also bought a $25 gift card and tried it but it will not let me use that it's making me put a credit card in as a backup in case my subscription runs out.but I had lost my debit card recently and ordered a new one and so I have to use another method of
    payment until I get the new card but the system will not allow me to bypass the lost card or remove it.

    Xbox gift cards

    Hello btc,

    We understand that you have an inquiry in regards to an Xbox gift card.

    Unfortunately, buying an Xbox gift card
    in any country would mean using that currency within the same region. This is mentioned within the linked page:

    • Can I send a gift card to another country?
      Gift cards are in local currency, so when you buy a gift card it will only work in the country where it was purchased

    We hope that this information has helped, and we wish you the best!
