Allow Microsoft Money / Account Currency as a Payment Option for 360 Titles

If i try to buy any content or games via the xbox store on the xbox website it charges directly to my creditcard even though I have sufficient funds in my Microsoft Account.
It should either give me the option to use my Microsoft account or automatically charge my account in the first instance.
Paying with Microsoft money is currently only possible when purchasing via the console.

    If you insist on purchasing a 360 back compat game then seek a friend who still owns the platform and make a purchase through the 360 marketplace, after so you should see the game downloading on your Xbox queue or ready to install.

    You can use credit if you do it on 360. The redemption systems are not currently connected and won’t be till they do the 360 migration to the one XBL backbone that’s in the works.

    ​Doesn't make sense I gave Microsoft my $$$ to fund my Account & cannot use those funds to purchase a 360 bc game. This is very upsetting it's like I'm being "FORCED" to use more $$$ to purchase a game I already have funds for but cannot use!​ Stop telling me to purchase from my 360! I traded my 360 in years ago! I don't have loads of cash to waste I work hard for my money. Why am I being penalized fir upgrading to the Xbox One! What's the whole point of having backwards compatibility if you can't purchase it from the new system! It should be a "backwards compatibility" with a very obtrusive hidden "fineprint"! Please! Please, fix this! I would love to play these games that I enjoyed in the past or haven't had a chance till now to purchasing!
