So Microsoft points...

Assuming you don't have to pay taxes...
-Buy a 1600 Microsoft Points card for $20 and get it converted to $20 for my account.
-A certain games website says that a certain DLC set costs 1040 Microsoft Points and gives the equivalent in U.S. currency which is $12.99 (not noticeable yet right?)
-Another set which costs 720 Microsoft Points which is the "equivalent" of $8.99
-Before the account system change it would be possible to buy both without the inclusion of tax: 1040 Microsoft Points + 720 Microsoft Points = 1760 Microsoft Points
-However, now it is $12.99 + $8.99 = $21.98 which means it is impossible to buy both sets after a purchase of 1 points card.
-So that is roughly a $2.00 steal here...

I'm mad. =(

^No, previously, you would have been 160 points over the 1600 for the $20 card. The points/price is basically the same. All that changed is the tax.
