Activating Microsoft Points Card

by Kirk

I bought a Zune 2000 Microsoft points card. I don't have a password to activate it. Can please give a hand with this situation? Thank you!


Hi Kirk,

If you bought a Microsoft Points card from a store, it should have been already activated by the cashier. They are kept deactivated on the store shelves to prevent shoplifting.

The next step is to redeem your points so you can actually use them. You'll find a code on the card that you can use for this purpose. Follow these steps...

1. Start the Zune software.
2. Go to Settings -> Account.
3. Under Microsoft Points click redeem code.
4. Enter the code you found on the card.

This will add the points to your Zune account. Have fun in the Zune Marketplace!
