Cannot redeem Xbox code sent from another region?

  1. Hello. For Christmas, my friend in the UK gave me a redeemable Xbox code. I was then told that I cannot claim the reward because I'm in a different region (Germany). I don't doubt this has something to do with EU/brexit laws regarding currency, but I would like to use the code. I have already tried setting my region to the UK and that doesn't seem to work.

  1. Sorry but when you purchase a code, the print tells you that the codes are region locked.

    Your friend will have to attempt a refund and get you another gift.

    Good luck
