While shopping around for the best Xbox game deals online is well and good, it’s no secret that sometimes retailers like Tesco, GAME and others can’t compete with some of the digital listings available on the Xbox Live store. However, there is a way to reduce the price of digital games even lower, thanks to the use Xbox gift cards and wallet top-ups. These serve as physical cards whose codes can be redeemed to your Xbox account.
Why should you opt to use gift cards and wallet top-ups over implementing your bank details? Well, it’s more secure for a start, avoiding the risk of your funds depleting in the rare event you Xbox Live account gets hacked. Then there’s the fact that digital key retailers like CD Keys, Eneba and Gamivo regularly discount the face value of gift cards, helping you save more when redeemed online.
Purchasing Xbox Live games with top-up cards is just as flexible as using your credit or debit card thanks to the many different currencies available. Whether you want to add £10 or £100 to your Xbox account, it’s a simple case of finding the relevant gift card (always at the best price thanks to Console Deals) and redeeming the code you’re then provided.
Tying your credit card information to your Xbox online profile is a more convenient approach but that might not suit everyone. Parents, for instance, wanting peace of mind whenever their younger players game online, can more easily manage the digital currency they’re spending using Xbox gift cards and wallet top-ups.
