Nah, expires next year. And it’s a debit card, so I know there’s no over-the-limit issue.
I bought something with it online yesterday, so it sure seems like it’s a valid card.
The extra-awesome bit is the mail I just got from Microsoft:
Dear Nathaniel Lanza,
We have been unable to charge your credit card for your Xbox Live 1000 Microsoft Points bundle purchases. The following credit card is the current payment method on your billing account:
Credit card type: VISA
You will not have access to the service until you update the payment information for Xbox Live 1000 Microsoft Points bundle. If payment is due for other Microsoft services purchased with the above card, those services may also be affected.
To view or change your billing account, go to https://billing.microsoft.com, and select one of the following options:
* To update payment information, click on the payment method's link under 'Payment type', on the next page click 'Go to payment method information', and on the next page click 'Edit payment method information'.
* To view a billing statement for a payment method, click the payment method's link under 'Payment type'.
If you have already resolved this issue, please disregard this notice and accept our thanks.
Thank you for using Microsoft Online Services.

Note: Please do not respond to this message.
The way the message doesn’t give a phone number or email address to contact them about it is just super-friendly. I mean, I know I can go look it up on their website, but the impression they leave is very much “just shut up and get back to giving us money”.
Fails there too; when I try to re-add the credit card, it tells me the information isn’t valid.
So I guess I will have to call them tomorrow. Fabulous.
