Is there any way to just add money into a wallet like when I used to just buy 20.00 worth the Microsoft point just to have?

That option was removed from the dashboard.

There's no need to now, from what I understand you no longer have a "wallet" you just buy stuff. You CAN have extra in your account from other things but I don't think there's any way to just keep stuff in there on purpose like the PSN or Nintendo counterparts.

Yes, you do have a wallet, it's just called "Account", and you can keep money in it, but the only way to do that now is by purchasing a Points/Gift card and adding it to your account.

There was no logical reason to remove that option from the dashboard, especially for people with families who might want to restrict how much money their kids can spend by only allowing them so many points at a time.

Microsoft killing points only made things harder, not easier.

You still just buy microsoft points. They haven't phased the cards out and replaced them yet. You can still buy them on amazon and in stores.

If you want to add money to your account, just buy msp and it will convert, you also don't get taxed using converted points.

Did they stop that again? I know I never used to get taxed with the points, I think the week before the new update launched was the MGS sale, I ended up paying 804 points for Peace Walker lol.
