So turns out Microsoft majorly 'ballsed up' with the discount code, expecting people to only use it once. I used it 20 times however only got 16 codes and am waiting on 4 more to come through however I believe Microsoft won't be sending them out and have some the codes in "Review Status" even though in my PayPal it says they're "Completed".

The largest problem I'm facing is that I'm from UK and used a US Address from fakenamegenerator :tongue: I opened up a chat earlier and they asked me where I was from so I waited for chat to time-out (Didn't know what to say).

I think if I was able to find out the PayPal transaction IDs of the ones which didn't come through, I could separatly open up disputes via PayPal however I'm not sure it's possible to differentiate the transactions which did come through to the ones which didn't.

Is there anyone else here who used the code from UK to get the MSP for $4.99 and managed to get a refund?

I just got off the phone from them, they basically got raped on this so they are backed up on orders. So from what I understand I got charged twice when I bought two so they are either going to send me them or refund my money. Even if you got 16 out of the 20 that's still a good deal but I understand your dilemma.

people should avoid these 1200 MSP as MS are banning XBL accounts for Marketplace Theft due to the massive abuse
fair warning

I had to contact them and they gave me three out of the four codes. The agent said I have to contact my bank to get a refund for the fourth. bulls***.

No concrete proof. However you only need to contact MS CS to know there's an insane amount of orders being placed for the 1200 MSPs and there's a reason why people who've ordered a 1200 MSP have yet to get a confirmation email let alone a working valid code

They will NOT ban anyone for using this. The codes are still paid for. They pay nothing to generate the codes so they still made a killing off this.

So does anyone think it's worth it to use my code I got from the offer? It's not been used by anyone and I want some MSP.
