FREE 1 Month Free Trial xbox live gold

Not had gold for a month or two as i have been waiting for a £1 a month deal coming up on the dashboard but it never happened.

Anyway, did a search on here and saw that if you go to dashboard and choose internet explorer without gold it will take you through to ordering gold.

Click to see what gold packages are available, mine came up at full usual gold prices so i clicked no thanks.

Soon as i clicked no thanks, a new window came up asking me if i wanted a 1 month free trial... obviously I clicked yes.

No Idea if this will work for everyone, but i would assume it does, maybe it's a bit of christmas cheer microsoft is spreading?

Anyway, good luck with it.

P.S. it will switch your account to recurring billing after the 1 month is up at £5.99 so make sure you turn automatic renewal off.

You don't use the link, you go to your xbox dashboard and do what i said in description.

If you want to turn auto renewal off, goto xbox.com and turn it off

how do i find this on the xbox ??? cheers
#13
on dashboard if you haven't already, download internet explorer, once installed open it up, without gold you can't access it, so it will ask you if you want to by gold (or look at gold packages and pricing) click through to view the prices and then choose no thanks.

The next window should be the free trial offer.

All this depends on you being a silver member.

Tried this just after my membership ran out a month or so back when I saw it on here, but no luck for me, will try again tomorrow though and see if it has changed for me

I used this 3 weeks ago (I think it was on HUKD) and it worked fine for me. Others have said it works up to 3 times so may be worth trying again :)

Queen 'O' Deals this was the first time I had used Xbox live and it worked fine for me so it should for you.
#19
This was on here a few weeks back and it only works for some people. I was one of the ones it WOULD NOT WORK for

tried to disable auto renew and it needs to "confirm my account" with an old email that isnt used, i have to wait untill next year to add a new email account, anyone else having this?
#21
I had a message on live about security issues, but luckily the emails it had for me to confirm identity etc are still being used.

Sorry can't offer any further insight into your specific issue, perhaps try giving them a ring?

I see you've finally ditched the Saville avatar, wise move.

my live just expired and not showing for me :(

Shame not everyone is seemingly able to benefit from this.

I have been silver for between 1 and 2 months so perhaps its a time thing?

I'd keep trying over the next few days, unless you just renew anyway kind of thing, good luck

I did this offer a few weeks ago and got caught out by auto-renew. When I tried to cancel it, it said I was not using the "registered" computer (which I was), and that I needed to install Microsoft Essentials. I wasn't happy installing MS Bloatware but felt forced to, and STILL I could not access my account. Adding new details or new machine to the authorized list meant waiting over a month for it to become active - more than the 1 month free trial. No email, and queues to speak to someone are always ridiculous.

Luckily, my Credit Card had expired so MS couldn't charge me. Very frustrating experience which has made me think twice before using LIVE again...

I have been silver for ages and these offers don't work for me. The last time this was up it seemed to be 50/50 with some working and others not ???

Really weird ms would restrict this to some customers and not others, all I can presume is that you may have had these offers before so they have a quota thing in place?

I do know I have used the quid a month thing a couple of times before and like I say i havent had it appear this time round so maybe after this month I'll have used up my live offers? Bummer if so :(
#35
No I have not had any free offers...

The only offer I took was the £3 or something for a month...

Plus my xbox is standard not chipped or anything like that so it cannot be that

Yes, you have to be silver for it to refuse loading the browser and thus take you through the pricing structure.
