Microsoft actually makes it really easy to buy gift cards to send to your friends and family and has a range of monetary values you can do it in. It's perfect all year round for your favorite gamers, because what's better than free money to buy the latest games with?!
If you're wanting to share the gift of games, here's how you do it.
- Head on over to Microsoft's digital gift card portal.
Select your desired design, in this case we're going Xbox but you can also go for a generic Microsoft Store voucher, also.
Choose the amount you want to spend. You can choose between $1 and $100 with single dollar increments available up to $80. (These amounts only apply in the U.S.)
- Click add to cart.
- Complete checkout.
The process used to allow you to send the code directly to the other person, but now it seems that you can only buy a digital gift card code yourself. You'll have to then pass it on manually to your recipient.
