Cards work as prepaid balance to buy games over the Internet.

The Xbox One allows you to buy Gift Cards, ie gift cards, the network Microsoft or through official dealers such as large retailers. These are prepaid balance cards, which can be added to the user’s account to purchase Xbox One or Xbox 360 games, whether or not they have Live Gold, the Xbox Live subscription . The balance varies between $30, $50 and  $100, according to the player’s need – it is also possible to buy several digital copies, to add the amounts and purchase more expensive games or large quantities of games, movies, music and DLC.
