My Microsoft account was hacked a ways back and needless to say the credit card... yeah... we had to take it off. So with that in mind and me not owning a 360 if I wanted to buy some digital BC games could I uses something like... I dunno a prepaid Visa card as a substitute? I know I can't use Xbox currency.

You can still pay with your credit card, just don't store the information on the website/store.

I never store my credit card information anywhere online and always re-enter it for every purchase. It make take an extra minute, but there's less risk.

Wtf the 25$ gift card costs about 36$. Why is that? Why would any same person pay more money for that than the original gift card value?

As per the previous posts, grab some pre paid Microsoft cards then add them to your account, best way to do it.

Looks like those are non-digital code ones so you get them in the mail just get the digital code ones ans you get a dollar to dollar ratio

You can use Xbox credit to buy BC games now? When did that start? I’ve had to boot up my 360 to buy BC games using credit...
I prefer to just play video games rather than worry about which platform/s they release on or how many pixels are on the screen.

Nope, 360 only. The Xbox Gift Card advice wasn't the best for this situation.
