    Microsoft app store vouchers

    Stabbing in the dark here.

    Does anyone know where I can get hold of a couple of app store vouchers - I've googled, even rung microsoft (they didnt know either.)

    I just want to be able to walk into a shop - buy the voucher and then give them to the staff - If I have to go through our normal ordering process I could be waiting forever..

    fanks in advance

    You can get them on amazon, (actually sold by amazon, not some ripoff scam reseller)
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Microsoft-%C...tore+Gift+Card

    Although this is for a downloadable code, you should be able to print it off and just hand them to staff.

    Xbox live is using real money not points but Microsoft will now sell you a code worth what ever cash value you want to add to your account.

    This has lead to some interesting deals. Here for example is £50 live store credit being sold for £43.90! How if there was only some way to transfer the £50 live store credit back into my bank account...

    thanks guys

    What I was wanting - was to be able to wander into a store (pcworld etc) and get a voucher and not have to wait for one to arrive via snail ordering process and snail mail - so that the staff who are trialing the tablets can redeem the code for apps they see as being useful
    Plus i dont want to let them loose with a £50 card - it would be like giving my bank card to the dragon and tell her to go buy a loaf of bread...

    £15 is more than enough to start with.

    As other have said you should be able to just buy the Xbox cards and the credit for those is valid on Xbox, Windows 8 and Windows Phone app stores.

    Argos and Tesco at least do them in store
