    I have tried Microsoft Points from another region on my account, and they do not work.

    I had to make another account from the United Kingdom in order to redeem the points.

    Ms cards have always been region protected.

    He said he had to make a UK account to redeem the code. He did not redeem it on his US account.....

    Make an account using the country the points are from and redeem them on that account.

    I don't quite get you sorry. How do you redeem the point? Thanks

    So in another word, i can convert my own region/country point into another region account and use it there?

    No what he is saying:
    Let's say you have points from england but you live in america.
    Make a new gamertag, when it asks you for your location you put england.
    Now you can redeem the points on that account.
    download whatever you want, and it stays on that xbox!
    =D
