Just buy points from amazon and get a code in your email tax free.

After the msp points system change, gamers are going to spend less on digital games, DLC and downloadable content.

In some states Amazon purchases are taxed, so they still manage to get you.

This morning I went to Gamestop. They will sell you Live credit with the code on the reciept. I bought 22 bucks worth of MS credit. It's helpful to avoid the tax, as they didn't charge me tax for it.

We better not pay those taxes. After all they only fund the local public schools transport & police. Safety & education for the next generation or more takeouts for me now... The answer is obvious
