    Hi all,

    I'm new to Xbox One and while at my local Best Buy jumped into buying an Xbox Live Gold 1 year membership for $60.
    Really dumb of me to purchase before researching. :-(
    Now that I have researched it, I am convinced it is simply not appropriate for me. (So please, don't try to convince me).
    The membership card is unused/unscratched/unactivated.

    Apparently there is no possible way to return this for a refund ... neither at Best Buy nor at the local Microsoft Store, nor even
    by calling the MS Mothership on the phone.
    I'm completely taken aback that there is no refund possible. What company in this modern era has a product or service that
    is NOT backed by a refund policy of some sort. No doubt you can rationalize and convince yourself that there are good
    reasons why there's no refund possible. I am telling you, that there SHOULD be possibility of refund or return, especially if
    the item was never inactivated. ARGH. So frustrating to be in the position of having spent the money and now expending
    lots of time and energy to get some money back.

    Okay ... so any tips of moving forward and selling this?
    Is craigslist my best option for selling this and recouping some of my money?

    Thanks if you have any useful advice!

    Craigslist or Ebay are probably your best bet. You probably won't get your full $60+tax back, but you'll at least get something for it.

    I often find it for $35-40 myself. I still feel that at $60 it's well worth it. Especially with the Games with Gold offers they make every month.

    I think the main reason they're not keen on refunding codes is because they're one-time use products that can be easily invalidated. As the other poster said, I'd say that eBay is your best bet for a quick sale (:

    Did you scrape the code off, or peal it back ? If you did thinking you were going to use it, I think even on ebay no one would be interested.

    If you sell it with a picture make sure you don't show that code.
