You'll soon be able to purchase Xbox Live Marketplace points (and Gold memberships) by way of a paper receipt, but they won't be coming from a retailer you'd expect. Rather than GameStop, Best Buy, or any number of gaming-friendly stores, Dollar General will be launching the new program with support from InComm. Shoppers will be able to purchase any number of point-based or Xbox Live Gold options priced between $19.99 and $59.99. Rather than the physical (and arguably wasteful) cards that have typically contained redemption codes for those purchases, you'll instead receive a PIN code directly on your Dollar General receipt. And while Microsoft has chosen an unconventional partner for this foray, the increased efficiency is something we hope to see from other major retailers moving forward.
