On the Coinstar kiosk, I only see an option for "Xbox Live.” How do I choose between a Microsoft gift card and Xbox Live Gold Memberships?
When you use cash or coins at Coinstar and select the Xbox Live option, you will receive an eCertificate. This eCertificate can be used to get Xbox Live Gold Memberships, a Microsoft gift card, or both at Get Xbox Live Codes at Coinstar.
Note You don't have to choose between Xbox products on the Coinstar kiosk.
What is the minimum purchase amount at the Coinstar kiosk?
You must use at least $5.00 in cash or coins at a Coinstar kiosk to receive an eCertificate for Xbox.
How much do I need to buy Xbox Live on Coinstar?
Xbox Live Gold Memberships can only be purchased in 3-month and 12-month periods, for $24.99 and $59.99, respectively. Microsoft gift cards are available for $15, $25, and $50.
I redeemed an eCertificate for Xbox products, but I didn’t use all the value. What can I do with the remainder?
You need a total eCertificate value of at least $15.00 to get the smallest available Microsoft gift card. The remaining value on your eCertificate does not expire. Store it in a safe place and combine it with another eCertificate in the future to get additional Xbox products.
I have an eCertificate that’s worth less that the cost of a gift card or Xbox Live membership. How do I use this to get more Xbox products?
You can combine the eCertificate with other eCertificates to be able to purchase additional Xbox products.
I have two eCertificates. How do I combine them to get Xbox products?
Enter your PIN in the PIN field and click Submit. The Select your Xbox Live products dialog box will be displayed. All the Xbox product codes that you've obtained by using your PIN will be listed.
Where can I find a Coinstar kiosk with the Xbox option?
Most (though not all) Coinstar kiosks in the United States and Puerto Rico support the Xbox option. To find the nearest Coinstar kiosk that supports the Xbox option, go to the Coinstar Kiosk finder and enter your address.
I need help with an eCertificate, a PIN, or the Coinstar website.
The Coinstar website and the Xbox eCertificate program at Coinstar are both operated by Rixty, Inc. For information or assistance, contact Rixty.
