Site is a fraud. Uses the website as a front to launder money from stolen credit cards.

I have never used this website before or even looked at it. On October 10th 2013, this company somehow deducted $118.19 US from my bank account and another $1.19 for an international fee. From looking at all the other comments this site is a fraud. BEWARE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have never had any dealing with this site but 38 payments of £9.99 were deducted fr my bank account without my knowledge. I know this may not be the fault of the site but I would be wary about dealing with them.

I never have done business with this company but to my surprise I got a call from VISA fraud prevention asking me if the transaction that came through this morning was valid. I hope Interpol is investigating them. I would be more than happy to assist them. Frigging theives!

Not instant delivery of points at all. Last time it took 3 days and rude emails from "john" at Gamesbite before they bothered sending the points.
Just tried again, fool i am, and two hours later absolutely nothing. I dont think they are con artists but the custoner service stinks. Stay away from them

Never ordered from their website but I have ordered from them twice via their eBay shop and never had any issues - Delivery was a little slow (about a week) hence the 4 stars but overall I haven't really had any issues.

I ordered an Instant 3 month Xbox Live code but there wasn't much about it that was instant. After a 3 day wait (admittedly it was a bank holiday weekend, but what is the point of offering an "instant" code if you can't deliver instantly, I would have been better ordering a card from Amazon or popping into Game, at least they open on a bank holiday/weekend) there was still no sign of the code. When the office finally decided to open I enquired what had happened to my order, it turns out they had cancelled it, without even contacting me or giving me an explanation. It was only when I chased them that I found out I had failed a couple of the fraudulent checks. Even though my credit card was apparently "fraudulent" they still took the money, a refund was on it's way but that doesn't explain why my card was deemed "fraudulent", surely no money would have been attempted to be taken from a "fraudulent" card? One of the reasons I apparently failed their checks is that I didn't put my phone number in when ordering. There was no asterisk or other indicator near this input field showing that this information was required, something which most online retailers show, so I assumed they wanted this for marketing purposes or a problem with the order and didn't fill it in. They wouldn't tell me the other criteria when I failed, which I thought was a bit fishy. Overall I wouldn't use this site again. I got my code in the end but it wasn't without effort and time on my part. The customer service side of things needs to improve (as well as extending business hours) if I would ever consider ordering from these guys again.

Bought a limited edition game from this site. Called prior to ordering to check it was instock and available at listed price and told yes it was still instock. Checking back several days later to see if it had been posted yet was informed I would be receiving a refund as they had listed it wrong. It is currently still instock but now listed £50 more than I paid. I feel this is unacceptable customer service especially considering I checked stock and price prior to ordering. Very disappointed with them as a company and was only when I chased was told I would get a refund though the price went up very soon after I purchased (I had told a friend who also wanted same game so know price changed soon after I bought it)

STAY WELL AWAY! Ordered a rapid fire controller for my son for Xmas, site says they are new, opened, modded and repackaged. Sent with no packaging - looks v suspicious. When I raised it with them, I was basically told 'tough', it's as advertised - but it's not!!!!!!!. Worried not that it won't even work, and won't be able to get money back.

Killed off my credit cards and could not buy my Xbox points via my xbox. Found Gamesbite and got my points by email this afternoon. I understand that if I had been in a hurry for them I could have got them via the live helpdesk first thing this morning rather than wait for the e-mail.
Great service, will be getting my future points from here.

Grand so. Quick, painless. Got my Xbox Live code pretty quickly, allowing me to go and get killed repeatedly online and thereby affirm my status as a techno-failure.

Don't know what those other whingers are on about. They must be fairly pointless characters. The site's grand.

This website is amazing. Especially if you're an Xbox 360 owner, on Xbox live. They sell 12 month Xbox Live, for £10 cheaper than Microsoft themself. The points are quite cheaper too. They do e-mail delivery of points and membership. They even have online support in case you need their help. Fast delivery on everything I've bought from them. Would strongly recommend you check them out.

This website is a total, I ordered my xbox live code , then 2 month later, i have been banned from xbox live for buying fake xbox live code. Beware buyers, you might get good service for 2 months, then after you will get banned ! This is disgusting, I can't play xbox live at all , I'm so upset, I have been a gamer for 6 years now, now this happens.

This site is absolutely fantastic.

Microsoft charge £39.99 for 1 year of xbox live gold membership, which is already a fantastic price... GamesBite, however, offer the exact same thing (scanned and emailed) for £10 less!

Check this out! You leave feedback then they call you a liar!!!:

Subject: your lie for feedback
at no point do we offer instant delivery what we do is state that if we are online on our chat we will deliver the code i was not online when you was transfered to me and when you came back half hour later your code was sent when your at work on your lucnh do you expect to be interupted


You continue to prove my point about your appaling service..... It is totally irrelevant to me as a customer that i was passed to you by your colleague for INSTANT DELIVERY when you were on lunch. Ive never had worse service and the fact youve taken the time to call me a liar for stating a fact amazes me. By the way I am a retail manager and YES I do expect to have my lunch interrupted regularly. By the way in the time you spent ONLINE telling me your lunch was going cold you could have done your job instead. Your service is a joke

Same experience as others on this page. They are complete fraudsters. Ordered 4200 xbox points from them - when the letter finally arrived with the code I found it had already been used. The email supposedly going to some "non - existent" address that "I" had supposedly given. Avoid at all costs!!!!

How can microsoft continute to let these guys sell xbox live codes that are clearly used and old? I would think microsoft would stop these guys from selling used codes. Maybe if someone sends MS a link to these reviews they will look into it.

We bought an xbox live subscription from these 'people'. When it arrived it did not work. We told them this immediately. They told us to log a support call with microsoft - checking with microsoft the subscription had already been activated by someone else. Gamesbite refuse to give us our money back, claiming that we had either 'had our email account hacked' (lol) or passed the code onto someone else and were trying to get another one free. These guys are not trading fairly. AVOID. AVOID. AVOID.

They are liars and fraudsters. I bought an Xbox Live 2100 point code from them but when I received it and tried to use it it didn't work so I emailed them, they told me to get in touch with Microsoft. SO I did; MS said the code had already been used by someone else. SO I told Gamesbite this and they said they were not responsible. They are thieves.

bad traders, dodgy dealers do no USE - <p>i ordered 4200 xbox live points for my son and on the web site it says same day electronically delivered, that was yesterday and i am still waiting for my email and code for my points?</p>
<p>now the web page has 2 numbers great i'll call them---no answer---left messages and they</p>
<p>never respond at all,also left countless messages via email and still no response.</p>
<p>i think they are fraudelently trading and as such people should be aware of this and do not trade with this web site ever.</p>
<p>also a dispute has been filed with paypal via the dispute console and they have only replied to say they were out of the office and that they were not prepared todeal with me whilst a dispute was open.</p>
<p>very bad traders and should be shut down</p>
