FIFA 13 Early Release players may have already noticed FIFA Points in the top right hand corner of their Ultimate Team menus.
So what are FIFA Points and how do we use them?

PC players will be familiar with FIFA Points but they’re a new concept to console players.
In FIFA 13, FIFA Points (as well as coins) can be used to buy Ultimate Team packs.
You’ll now buy FIFA Points in the Ultimate Team store on your console with your PSN Wallet or Microsoft Points.
EA gave us three reasons why they made the jump to FIFA Points on XBox 360 and PS3.
Because FIFA Points are actually in Ultimate Team you’ll be able to buy packs using them without being sent off through numerous Xbox Live Marketplace and PSN menu windows every time.
This reason makes FIFA Points worthwhile on it’s own for me.
FIFA Points make it possible to buy packs on the Ultimate Team Web App using Microsoft Points or your PSN Wallet.
You’ll still have to buy the FIFA Points on your console first but once you have they’ll be available to use each time you crank up the web app.
They’ll also be available to be used on the iPhone app too. (And the Android app eventually).
A great move for those of us that would be spend the money anyway. Get more packs for your money when you buy more FIFA points.
FIFA Points are a smart move on EA’s behalf because it locks in more of our cash to Ultimate Team in advance. Money that we can’t be tempted to spend elsewhere.
To reward us for committing more of our cash, they’re offering discounts on FIFA Points bulk purchases.

Why cant you buy fifa points on the EA FUT Web App? Is it only an in game option?
Im having the same problem, why isnt it working on the web app?
why isnt the ultimate team working ??
It makes a lot of sense. Micro transactions like these are becoming a huge thing in games nowadays. It gives players who don’t have a ton of time to devote to getting coins an alternative option. Having in game for console use makes it easier which means more people will be likely to use it.
From a business standpoint it makes a lot of sense.
My grandson bought Microsoft points to the value of £25.50 then exchanged them for FIFA points which he didn’t receive. Seems to be a recurring problem so I would advise people not to buy!
maybe u did it wrong.
Just paid for fifa points but no idea where they are. Cant see them in game or via the web app. It icks me out of fut if i try to purchase any more. Whats the deal?
Contact EA, its an ongoing issue.
Keep us posted what your experience is
I bought 2 x packs of the £11.99 ones saturday and both times it completed purchase but both times no fifa points appeared.. Been on the live chat for 45 minutes now with someone from EA only to be told someone will get back to me in 10 – 12 days by email because there are so many cases to investigate…. Bit of a joke this
Haven’t been able to buy Fifa points via Microsoft points since day release! Everytime I try, the game crashes and I have dashboard and re-load game! Reported to EA but all I get is “they are investigating”, they really have dropped the ball this year!! Anyone else having this issue?
i just bought some fifa points and was playing fifa then my ps3 froze so i turned it off, when i turned it back on a message appeared saying that a problem had occured and a message was sent off to say there was a problem, so i went back on to fifa and i swear nearly all my fifa points had gone…. i just want to confirm that it did take my points… could anyone tell me how many fifa points you get for 25 pounds on ps3??
I have a problem when i buy fifa point there stands if you buy 1050 fifa points you will gett 50 Fifa points free but i have never had them
the 50 are including in th 1050 so instead of getting 1000 which is what the points would be worth, you get 1050
how i can buy fifa points in fifa 13?
I’ve recently purchased points and is showing at the top right of screen but is not giving me the option of spending to points, just saying need more coin. Can anyone shine some light on this please
Points and coins are not the same. What are you trying to purchase?
It shows that I got the points on the top right of the screen but I’m not able to buy any gold packs, it’s saying I haven’t got enough coins but I want to spend the points anyway. Any idea why I can’t spend the points? Thanks pal
Should I buy the fifa points? considering there are many complaints about not getting the points?
Don’t buy them at mo it’s a joke
El día de ayer compre 100 FIFA points a 80 Microsoft points 4 veces.
En total me debieron haber abonado 400 FIFA points y sólo me abonaron 100.
Faltan 300 FIFA points.
Y si me cobraron 4 veces 80 Microsoft points. Total 320
I have to spend REAL money to get points? NOOOOO. I already? bought the game with real money, what the hell more do they want?
The pictures are the same
