If i was you i would just go to a store and by a card and the reason why i say that is because most of the time with systems like that when you put your credit card in to buy points usually someone can hack in and wipe out your credit card and trust me on that because last time i tried that my credit card got wiped out that's why i go to stores to buy those things.

What this means is that computer manufactures (HP, Gateway, Dell etc) get a kickback (small amount of money) if they preload their computers with trial software. In most cases this will be Microsoft Office, Norton etc. So the software will work for 1 to 2 months before you need to buy a serial key to fully activate the product. So the ad means you can buy the key to activate said software.
Comment back if you need additional details.

I dont have microsoft points to get this game


There are several ways to get points:

Purchasing Points is like putting money into a special account that you can use on Xbox LIVE Marketplace. You can buy them online from the Marketplace itself on your console or on Xbox.com by using your credit card, but if you don't have a credit card, no worries. You can also pick up gift cards at hundreds of participating retail locations and use the number on that card to buy your Points. I normally get mine from Walmart, and I've even called Xbox support before to renew my subscription.

You can also get Points as part of the Xbox LIVE Gold Pack, available at participating retailers. Points will also be awarded to users for various promotions in the future. It's a simple thing. Think of getting points similar to buying pre-paid cards that holds minutes so you can use those minutes for long distance calls on your cell phone and etc.

I have had this problem for a long time, up until recently I have figured it out. Here are some steps you can try.
1.Microsoft takes about 12 hours to process your credit card information, so wait until then.
2.Go buy Microsoft Point Card at Best Buy, Gamestop, or try your local Video Game Store.
3.Try rebooting your router, by unplugging the power cable for 10 seconds and plug it back in.

Trying to register for xbox live but have no credit card only debit card. how do i still register


If your Debt card has a Visa or MC logo you should still be able to use it. If not than go to a local Target or Walmart. You can buy "Microsoft Points" which you can use to get on line in lieu of a credit card.
