I've tried to download the free Noble and Defiant map packs for Halo Reach on both the Microsoft website and on my Xbox One, but it says I need a credit card attached to my account to "purchase" them.

I have $15 in Microsoft credit on my account and I always have paid for stuff with MS points, going back to the early 360 days. I don't see a point in giving my credit card info to them when it's just as easy for me to pay for stuff with MS points, especially after so many big companies getting hacked in the past few years. *coughSonycough*

Why do I need to input a credit card to purchase free stuff from the marketplace? Is there any way around this?

Make sure it doesn't say GOLD next to it.
If it bleeds, we can kill it.

It doesn't, not sure why that would matter anyway as I have XBL Gold.

Some items have deals that are Gold exclusive.

Like I said, I'm already XBL Gold, so not sure why that would matter.

Have you tried contacting MS support?

It’s the same for all 360 items, you’ll still get it free, you can buy it on your 360 if u don’t have a cc

All 360 content needs a cc on file even if it's free. Don't know why but that's just how it is. Some people use PayPal or bought some cards from Walmart or some s*** as a work around. Me I just put my credit card on file cause it's just convenient and in the last decade I haven't had a problem.

All free 360 content requires a payment option on file to claim it, and all 360 purchases cannot be made with your account balance, unless you are using a 360.

Are you able to access an in-game store to "purchase" the DLC for Reach?

If you can, you can claim them from there, as you will be using a 360 (as far as XBL is concerned) to access the marketplace, of course, this workaround only works for content that can be purchased from that game's in-game store.
