Hey everyone! I understand you are having some troubles redeeming a prepaid code, is that correct? Have you tried redeeming on both the console and Xbox.com? Also, can you please visit https://billing.microsoft.com and make sure all your account information is current and correct (name, address, region, etc).If you continue having issues redeeming codes to your account, I would suggest contacting phone support in your region (support.xbox.com/contact-us) for further help with your billing account. Let me know if that helps, thanks!
same as all others above... D:
Just figured it out! You have to have a payment method linked to the account you want the free live on.
Wat Do you mean ? And i have the same problem as every Body above me D; Message me a reply For Advice :D
Awesome diabetic is correct. had the same problem. it wouldnt give me my free month because i didnt have payment options. i added a payment option and it gave it to me.
I'm not having these problems, I am having a different problem. I have the same message about Status code 80070057, but I'm trying to redeem the free one month trial of Xbox Live that they are giving me
