Buying Xbox LIVE points is like preparing to go abroad really. Due to the fact that the points themselves don't translate particularly easily into 'real money', you end up hunting around for a favourable exchange rate just as you might do with dollars or euros or turnips. What this does mean quite often, though, is that if you find a helpful deal you can often snap up Marketplace games at a lower price than you would if you were buying direct online or via the PSN.
The prices for the 2100 cards are generally fixed around £16.99 (there are a few on eBay who email the codes out to you, but this can be pretty risky and often the price difference isn't worth it), but The Hut are offering their current sotck at a clearance price of £14.93, which is a good pound or so cheaper than the nearest competitor at Amazon Jersey.
However, you can knock another pound off of the price simply by signing up to The Hut's newsletter if you haven't already, meaning that you could lower the price to £13.93 and make a saving of £2.
Considering that you need Xbox LIVE points to do just about anything with Microsoft's temperamental tub of virtual toys this is a pretty sweet deal. It's also worth noting that if you're buying in bulk, it's still worth trying out the CLEAR4 voucher code that entitles you to £4 off when you spend over £40. It was supposed to expire yesterday, but I just successfully managed to use it as of 09:17 this morning. If it does work, then you could be looking at 6300 Points for £40, which is phenomenally good value!
A Quick Top 5 Things To Spend Your Points On:
- Shadow Complex
- Trials HD
- Marvel vs Capcom 2

If you spend any more than 80 points on pimping your avatar I may have to slap you.
