    So, I am looking for a website that sells EU Microsoft Points where they can deliver by Email.

    I know that there are plenty but here is the complicated bit :

    Well, I live in Egypt so I do not have a Paypal account since Paypal isn't supported in Egypt (go figure) so the only payment method that I can provide is by Credit Card or by moneybookers.com (great service btw)...

    So, in other words, I want to buy points from a site that accept my payment methods and that can deliver the code by email.

    Cheers guys

    Google checkout Psycho, it's a no-go for Egypt...

    I buy my points from www.xboxliveuk76.com but it's only via Paypal...

    Am I missing something? Can you not pay for MS points directly if you have a Credit Card?

    ???

    Thanks mate, I know this site, it uses google checkout and guess what it doesn't support Egypt. So no good for now.

    Not in countries in which Xbox Live isn't officially supported mate (just like here in Greece)...

    Are these places good for 12 month subscription?? Mine is up for renewal and was wondering if they are much cheaper and just as good, or if they are cheaper becasue they aren't very reliable?? Same goes for the points, I need some and cheaper would be better if they are reliable.

    @I AM THE DOCTOR : Mate, since there doesn't seem to be ANY online shop that would sell you any points via moneybookers/credit card (99% of the shops seem to prefer paypal/google checkout), the only alternative i see here is creating a US account on your Xbox360 and buy your (US) points from play-asia.com...

    Ok,they may not do digital delivery but still, it's better than nothing,right?

    PS: You could always ask the sales department of Play-asia to send you the codes via e-mail...

    Try phoning / emailing a game shop, see if they will charge your credit card over the phone / email and read out / email the code to you. Worth a try, anyway. They can do unattended transactions on their til machine, so I wouldn't see it being a problem. That way you could use any EU game shop in theory.

    I used these guys the other day:

    http://www.theironsden.co.uk/cgi-bin/ss000001.pl?page=search&SS=xbox+live+points&PR=-1&TB=A

    Fairly reasonable pricing, and I ordered late on A Friday and got them Saturday. Some of the reviews claim getting them quicker which might happen.

    They donít use Paypal or Google Checkout.

    The Jasper1675 one I linked to worked fine in September. It was recommended by someone on this site in an old thread. Try googling it, if your still unsure.

    I thought it looked a bit dodgy too, but it did work! Don't use it if you don't want to, just throwing it out there! I've not had my identity stolen or monies taken illegally yet...

    I think they just don't have a very good web designer...

    Anyway, it was mainly for the dude from Egypt as he could only use sites without Paypal or Google Checkout, and that site seems to be the only one I could find...

    Why have Tescos stopped selling them? I meant to go to Zavvi and get some from there before they shut up shop permanently but I was a little too late.

    Anyone ever tried this website?

    Came up in one of the sponsored links on Google, tho I find it somewhat dodgy that one of the contact numbers is a mobile.

    Hi,
    I am the owner of The Irons Den. I just wanted to reassure anyone reading the thread above we are not dodgy whats so ever. We offer a service whereby your codes get emailed to you the next day from when you purchased it.
    I am sorry the user didnt find our site very good. But most users of it have commented how easy to use and simply it is. So not sure what his problems are.
    Anyway hope that helps and many thanks to everyone who has come from eurogamer and purchased from us.
    Kind Regards
    The Irons Den

    A friend of mine used the site to get a year's live sub a few months ago. No problems whatsoever.

    Also please be advised that the above link to our site posted by Petulant_Radish seems to mess with your internet explorer cookies and doesnt display our site correctly and also corrupts links and so forth. It may be something to do with this site but I have put a link to a 2100 points section below in the hope that this links better

    £33.98 for 4200 points? Doesn't sound too unreasonable...

    /considers

    Anyone got any better deals than that?

    I tried a few of these sites today, trying to get some points for GTA IV, but they were all out of stock (which you only found out after you ordered) so I ended up having to get them on the dashboard.
