    I finally bought my new WP8 :) It's my 3rd day using my Lumia 620 and I'm loving it!

    I was wondering if I can use microsoft points (as in the ones you would buy for xbox) to buy WP games? Or can you only use real money?

    Thanks :)

    Not Xbox Live points, but you can use Bing rewards points to buy $1.25 and $5.00 WP8 app cards.

    That's a shame. It'd be much easier if we could. When I click that link...apparently it's not available in my region. I live in Australia. I just came from an iPhone so that's probably the only thing i'll miss...being able to buy apps etc. without a credit card -__-

    I'm still holding out hope that they will eventually release Microsoft Store gift cards at some point. However, I've just been using Bing Rewards for now. So far, so good on that front.
