Frequently asked questions
You will be charged immediately upon purchase of the Gift at the price indicated when you complete your purchase. Microsoft does not offer price matching should the price change in the future. You must designate a single Gift recipient using the individual’s email address. Once you have completed the purchase, an email will be sent to the Gift recipient containing a code (“Code”) to redeem the Gift. The email will be sent to the recipient immediately following purchase. Gifts can only be purchased and redeemed by users in the same country/region, and only at Participating Stores.
To redeem your Gift, the recipient must have a valid Microsoft account (or create a new Microsoft account). Anyone with access to the Gift email can use the Code to redeem the Gift, and Microsoft does not control whether the recipient elects to redeem the Gift or pass it along to others. Codes are single use and may only be redeemed once. Some Gifts expire and must be used by the Gift recipient within the indicated period. Microsoft is not responsible if the Gift Code is lost, stolen, misplaced, or used without your permission, or if the Gift expires before it is redeemed or used. The recipient’s ability to redeem and use a Gift may require certain hardware or software specifications, including Internet access service (connect time charges may apply). Gifts may contain additional terms that you or the recipient are required to accept before the recipient can use the Gift. Gifted content is for personal and lawful use only.
Gifts may be canceled and refunded to the Gift purchaser up to 14 days after the purchase or until redeemed by the Gift recipient, whichever occurs first. Gift recipients are not entitled to a refund or cooling off period, and you acknowledge that no refund will be made, except as required by law.
For any questions or disputes regarding purchasing or redeeming a Gift, or access and use of Microsoft account, please contact Microsoft Customer Support.
