Coinstar To Allow Customers To Trade In Their Coins For Xbox Live Codes
Digital payment company, Rixty, is working with Microsoft so that Coinstar machines can pay out with Xbox Live codes. That means gamers will be able to turn this loose change into anything from Xbox Live Currency to Xbox Live Gold memberships.
The options range anywhere from $5 to $100 in Xbox Live Currency or a Xbox Live Gold Membership, so customers will have several options to choose from.
"Rixty is already an established alternative payment platform for online games, and we're proud to be selected as one of the few approved Xbox Live Gift Card and Gold Membership wholesalers," said Rixty Ceo Ted Sorom.
"By expanding our channel to non-traditional resellers such as loyalty and incentive programs, we're giving these partners access to lucrative new products and consumers more convenient ways to obtain their favourite entertainment content," said Sorom.
The Coinstar machine will print out a certificate that will include a PIN that enables the customer to go online and redeem their certificate. With that PIN, the customer can choose whether to put the money towards Xbox Live Currency or a Gold Membership.
