[XB1] The Division 2 US $2.99 / AU$4.54 (was US $59.95) @ Xbox Store

620

Seems like a pretty solid deal for a digital copy. It might be hitting Game Pass soon, regardless this is a great deal.

Credit to OverburdenedWarrior for directions on how to claim this deal.

I've managed to grab it, but as others have noticed, you can't use your Australian cards/PayPal. Instead, you'll have to purchase a gift card and redeem it on the console itself, after switching your location in the settings. It used to be a lot easier to purchase from the overseas stores, but over the last few years they've been cracking down on it.

Here's a list of stores that sell credit: https://www.xbox-now.com/en/gift-card-shops

Once you've brought it, go onto the console, into settings and find location. Change it to the US and follow the prompt to reset the console. Once you've done that, you'll be able to redeem the code and purchase the game. Once brought you can safely change back to Australia.

If you haven't brought from the store before you'll probably need to add an address, even to use a gift card. Try to find a hotel in a state without sales tax.

    dodgy microsoft…make sure you stay on the US site, as soon as you change to the Aus page, the price goes up to $14.99 (island tax)

    Great game and great price.

  •  

    Good value @ US$3

  •  

    Put a dummy "1 Main Street". Seemed to accept that, but wouldn't accept PayPal or credit card. Would gift card work?

    •  

      cant even buy the gift card as they block payment for the gift card in the same way

      •  

        So "not available to Australia" then?

            @guidedlight:

            Unsure if you can purchase from a foreign store though I have not tried that.

            Please inform me how you managed to purchase it from a foreign store without an American credit card.

            Do I need to use a VPN first? You need to be more transparent of your method in the description rather than linking to a 147 page forum.

              Sorry, I’m at work so haven’t had the opportunity to grab this deal yet. I’ve previously been able to purchase from the US store, so I’m surprised that this has been restricted.

              It sounds like it is still possible via gift cards. But yeah, lots of hoops to snag this deal. Sorry about that.

    Is this a deal if you are unable to actually complete the purchase?
    People have had a lot of trouble trying to make cross region purchases for some time. As per the linked thread

      Do you have a link that explains how to use Amazon credit on the Xbox US store?

    The good old days when you could buy Xbox 360 games from the US store without having to jump through hoops. 😩

    I’m not sure about you people but, I just purchased it simply using PayPal.

    Here are the steps I used:
    1. Go to your browser and search up Microsoft Store US or like Xbox Store US
    2. Go in and search up the game and make sure it shows up as $2.99 USD
    3. Click on the product and if it asks are you sure you want to browse in this country there will be two options either America or Australia, click America.
    4. Go to your microsoft account page and add a new payment method which is the paypal account, make sure when adding the paypal country select the United States box on the Microsoft page.
    5. Login to your PayPal which has to be made under a US account.
    6. Go back to your Tom Clancy’s Div 2 game and refresh the page
    7. Go to the buy button and simply use Paypal at checkout
    8. Voila there you go you can choose to download on your xbox right away!

    I was charged around $4.95 aud. Hope this helps anyone!

      So was your PayPal initially setup to be US based or did to change an existing one?
      You were able to link an aussie bank account/card to it? From what I can gather, you can't change an existing aussie PayPal account. You either have to close and reopen it or setup a US one from scratch.

    I got it through one of my best pal who lives in America. thanks OP n to my pal.
