Microsoft points being depreciated

#1VeryDarkSoulPosted 7/7/2013 5:52:38 PM(edited)
As if Microsoft didn't piss in our face enough. You know why they are doing this right? So they can tax every single transaction. You won't be able to buy a 800 point card for around $10 and buy a $10 game. Instead you will have to buy a 10 dollar gift card. Oh wait, there's tax, so a 15 dollar gift card. Then you end up with some obscure amount of credit left on your account, like 3.81

Which tax locale will be used in calculating my purchases?
We will not apply taxes when you purchase digital content using funds that we deposit into your account at the time of the transition. However, when you use funds that you deposit into your account after the transition (including from Xbox Gift Cards, which will not be subject to tax at purchase), all appropriate taxes will be applied to those purchases based on the ship-to address for your account.

So unless you live in delaware or some other state with no sales tax, you're paying it

I have been taxed on MS points before.

And having $3.81 is better than having 50 points. At least with that $3.81, you can add the exact amount that you need to make another purchase (assuming it's more than $5 that you're adding) where you'll likely always have that 50 points which you cannot use for anything at all.

Where the hell do you live that has a 50% sales tax?
