Windows Gift Cards are finally available for purchase from Microsoft

After months of speculation, and even a redesign, the long-awaited Windows Store Gift Cards are finally up for sale. Rumors of the Windows Gift Card popped up back in May as Microsoft started moving away from “Points.” Fast forward six months and Microsoft Points are a thing of the past and Windows Gift Cards are here.

Microsoft is selling the Windows Store Gift Cards from their website in $15 and $25 versions. The cards can be used to buy apps, games, and more from the Windows Store and Windows Phone Store. The one catch is you will need Windows 8.1 in order to use the card to buy things in the Windows Store. These cards make the perfect stocking stuffer for any Windows user on your list.

Microsoft didn’t say anything about these cards being available at retail stores, but we assume they will be along side the new Xbox cards. Keep your eyes out and let us know if you see them.

    You just answered my question. The new Xbox cards are already available. The local grocery store has them. It’s the general use card mentioned here that I’m waiting for.
