Just some advice please - I usually buy my son a couple of 1000 microsoft points on a card for Christmas - he now tells me they have changed and now its coins?

I have no clue so does this mean that the points on the cards still work? Is it still worth buying them?

They will still work and will convert to the cash value when used.

Not only do they work, but you can make then add more money into your MS account than you paid for the card.
For example: a 2100 point card on amazon costs 14,03 (if you click on the "new and used" bit and find the top one there)

This converts to 17.99 when you add it on the xbox (or wherever else you add it)
So- you can see it pays to buy a card instead of paying for something direct from your card. You'd make nearly 4 a pop extra, doing it that way
