How exactly do you scratch off the code? I have never heard of this before.

that really bites dude... but seriously how hard did you scratch to take the code off (and why did you continue to scratch that hard after you saw it was coming off)

Try to return it... 50/50 chance depending on who your clerk at the store is. Just try it on a different day when there is someone else working there.

Yeah, those cards are complete garbage. they really needed to make sure the numbers/letters couldn't get scratched off. I scratched part of mine off once, but I was still able to figure out what it said and only had to guess on one of the letters.

call MS, there is a code beside the pin, i m pretty sure they will use that code to give you your serial number for the points. all hope isnt lost.

that happened to me too MS wont give a refund and they say there is no way of tracking it (yeah right) and told me to go back to to the store I got it from to exchange it. the store said they dont exchange things like that UNTIL I RAISED H@LL then they did so you might have to have it out with the store you got it from but according to MS they have to exchange it

The store I got it from (Microplay) wouldnt give me a refund. So I called 1-800-4MYXBOX and they wouldnt do **** for me either.

So here I am stuck with a useless 2800 points card.

Happened to me also with a 1600 point card. However the newer cards that are out are NOT covered anymore with that silver coating. That's probably because M$ had too many calls and complaints on the coating not coming off the numbers, but the numbers coming off with the coating. :evil:

How many characters did you scratch off? Can't you just guess if it's not a lot?
