Transfer money to kid’s account.

I currently goofed and made an incentive that worked for my kids doing well at school.  Good news is that it works, the bad news is that it works.   The incentive was after a certain amount of good grades the kids could earn 10 dollars in Xbox credit.  This is made easy through the add money feature of the Family settings. 

However, I would like to not use “real” money, but my microsoft rewards points that I have collected over the years.  My question is, can I transfer the gift cards earned through rewards to my sons’ account using the add money feature of said family settings?  Any advice would be helpful.

    <p>When you redeem your points for Xbox $ cards, they just send you a code via e-mail&nbsp;that you should then be able to apply to your kid’s account.</p>
