Found 14th Sep 2010Made hot 14th Sep 2010
Just logged on to my xbox to play halo: reach and in the spotlight section was a 40% off xbox live gold deal for 12 months for £23.99!!! Cheapest I have seen by a mile anywhere... I have a pic but can not work out how to post it...

Some clarification on the renewal thing from Microsoft;

"Your membership will automatically renew to a standard price annual membership at the then current price, unless you change your renewal or cancel before your membership ends."

Got that in an email

Dont stress man...

Can you buy this and it just adds on to your current subscription? Mine isn't due to expire until December....

Yup... add and it will continue form there....

Hot hot hot :o)

You get a free in-game helmet too if I read it correctly!

I think they target this offer at Silver members, rather than those of us with Gold already.

but it's then on auto renew for the following years at the normal price, i seem to remember having trouble trying to cancel the auto renew last time

can you add it and then cancel it so it doesnt autorenew?

this is a great price - hot

I am gold and got offered it... and yes...free helmet too!

I think I'm going to do this right now, then stop it so it doesn't renew again at the full price...

THIS IS A BARGAIN!

HOTTTT
HOTTTTTTTT
HOTTTTTTTTTTTT

did anyone have problem trying to get the noble 6 helmet as well?

i will vote hot even though you do support tottenham lol

you might have to pay for a 2nd year so dont go rushing out and buying, the small print aint that clear not sure what its trying to say but it says:

"One year subscription at £23.99 for the first year with auto-renewal at … "One year subscription at £23.99 for the first year with auto-renewal at the then current annual price following year one"

Hmmm... good point... although you can cancel auto renew surely??!?!?

Nice one, doesn't charge you until your current subscription is up either so may as well get in on this offer.

I can't confirm personally, but have heard others say there can be issues where it's on auto renew, so I would look into making sure they don't do this on you. Hot price though for sure!

The potential probs with auto renew is probably why many vote cold or don't vote at all

Nope!

Surely if you buy prepaid cards in future there should be no issue with auto renew?!?! Just make sure you use them before auto renew would be used? Or cancel auto renew?!?

I keep getting the error '80153085' when I try to make the purchase.

i am clicking on the offer,my payment card comes up,i click confirm purchase a keep getting error,tried about 8 or 9 times now

Add another payment card with the same details but one digit wrong... Change primary method of payment to that... Transaction won't go through...

Banned

Same thing for me.....Error code

i'll leave this. as far as I know, they may as well charge £70 for xbl gold next year and you're contracted to pay that.

hot from me,looking to be reach,and only silver!!

Says you can cancel or change renewal if you want... On the confirm screen

"Membership renews at the current price, unless you change your renewal or cancel before membership ends".

You can cancel by logging into xbox.com and going to my billing....

No reason not to buy then

If you used the 3 months for £7.50 promotion a couple of months ago, then you can't use this promotion.

i was getting the eroor code,but just checked my xbox live account online and it says my renewal date is 14/09/11....looks like its worked

Original Poster

Am getting error 80153085 when i try to buy too...

Error code for me too

Why all the negative comments about cancelling? You just call them up, the call centre was european not indian so they understood me, took 5 minutes when I cancelled mine last month.

If you're that worried about forgetting to cancel/change the card or buy a new sub code next time around simply change it to auto renew at the monthly rate. At least this way if you forget you've paid out for one month instead of 12.

Personally, I always keep an eye out for cheap deals all the time (not just near renewal time) as they simply get added to the end of your current sub.

The americans have a similar deal today ($30 for 12 months) and are having the same issues? Overload maybe?

Error code for me too



the error code is to download the helmet not the renewal
