...Instead, we sell these gift certificates for $8 dollars valued at $8 dollars...and since your total is $10, just buy 2 of these $8 certificates for $16 and we'll just keep your $6 here for you for next time...next time you spend 10 dollars, you'll only have to buy ONE $8 dollar certificate and then we'll hold on to the $4 for you. Eventually you might have a zero balance, but probably not! Thanks for shopping at Microsoft. KTHXBAI. This is the idiotic logic of Microsoft and their stupid points system for the marketplace. Its not the money, its the stupidity. They should price things in amounts that you cannot buy...now its 500, 1000 or 2000 only? My balance was 100 points. I went to buy a game that is 1200 points I can buy 1000 points..great now I only need 100 more....OOPS you can't buy 100...you can ONLY BUY 500. So fucking stupid...good marketing strategy to get people to buy more shit but come on....just use real fucking dollars or sell these things in lots of "100". It's a total scam and its scamming people already paying them for the service. Have a little decency! Scum. Not to mention the fact that the shit I bought won't even properly download. I mentioned this in the Shadow Conspiracy post...my download has been stuck at 1%...just wont move. Tried canceling and restarting. Tried turning it off and restarting. Same shit. Anyone ever run into an issue like this?
