£19.95 with the 5% FaceBook discount


£19.94 - bought one earlier today

thats not a bad price i tend to pay around £42 for the £50 from cdkeys so thats a saving right there

If you go on g2a marketplace they are even cheaper if memory right 18.49 for £25

whats g2a?

g2a market place is really doggy for gift cards and game time. People have been known to use stolen credit card numbers and launder money via fidt cards. Be extra careful who you buy from as others have had their game time and gift vouchers voided. I personally find gift cards deals a little off as they are only discounted 10-15% and you normally find bigger discounts on the games themselves. Obviously useful for dlc purchasing though but even most of those are heavily discounted at some point.

this is maybe a stupid question but hey ho if you don't ask, you will never know!

My son has just got an xbox and is currently using his live free month trial, once it's finished can he use a gift card to buy a year gold membership, or does he have to specifically buy the gold membership with cash, PayPal etc? I have no idea about computers and my son is only 9. Thanks in advance.

Buy this, it will be the cheapest / best way to get a years membership. If you try to do it on the xbox console you will have to setup a direct debit

edit: Use the 5% code to save approx £1.25

You can't buy a live membership using these, just buy the live sub cards from cdkeys instead

Once your gold membership expires the account is converted to 'Silver' which restricts some online features etc. You can upgrade anytime through Gift Cards, Pre-Paid Codes or directly through Xbox. Just make sure that the Auto Renew feature is disabled as that's the way they sting you for £40 a year. CDKeys always have good deals on Xbox Live Memberships ranging from 40-50% discounts.

Trusted place to buy from, always provide the product fast and efficient!

Good price but if anyone has a Littlewoods / Very / Isme account etc, they often send out discounts when your balance is paid off and these are often £25 off £50 spend or £30 off £60 but sometimes just £15 off £50 etc - i just order gift cards to the required balance, get the discount off and then pay off the balance straight away - couple months later they will send out another offer - trying to tempt me back into buying from them. worth thinking about

Being paranoid I only use prepaid gift cards and prepaid sub keys online so that I never link my own debit card/paypal details to my xbox account. Comes out cheaper too thanks to cdkeys so win win.

Heat added. Great price. Thanks OP.

Not a stupid question at all. None of us know until we know

I appreciate there's been a couple of replies already, but I just wanted to further clarify it.
There's two kinds of card you can buy:
1. You can buy a Gold subscription (RRP is about £40 for a year directly from Microsoft but you can usually get it from third parties for under £25). Make sure "auto renew" is disabled (or make sure a credit card is not linked to your Microsoft account), or Microsoft will take £40 from you upon renewal.
The main advantage of a Gold subscription is it allows you to play games online, with friends and with random people from all around the world. There are other advantages, such as free games (usually 1 per month on Xbox One and 2 per month on Xbox 360).

2. You can buy xbox credit. This deal is for xbox credit.
Xbox credit is used to buy content from the xbox marketplace - so usually games (which are downloaded and stored digitally on the console's hard drive), and "DLC" (downloadable content) - which is usually extra maps, levels, weapons, cars, etc. for games. It can also be used to buy other digital content such as films.

Note that you can NOT use your xbox credit to buy gold subscription.

This retailer (cdkeys) is reliable and is often the cheapest place to buy both kinds of card. They're my go-to guys. If you use them always remember to visit their facebook page for a 5% discount code. (You don't have to sign into facebook, or in fact have a facebook account.)

My advice for someone with a nine-year-old with his first xbox would be to let the free month run its course and then have a month without gold subs. See how it goes. If he's really missing it and complaining about the absence then get it. Some folk consider it essential. It's a must-have if you like playing Call of Duty or FIFA online, for instance, but if he's not taking advantage of the gold facilities and is just playing games offline like consoles back in the day then there's no point wasting money on it.
And I wouldn't buy him xbox credit in the first few months. Some kids have a tendency to waste credit on their account like it's play-money and will burn through it and then want a top-up. And then another... I prefer to have them wait a while until they've got a better understanding of the marketplace and they don't get into the habit of buying completely useless stuff. (For instance, in the "DLC" category you sometimes get the option to buy a new outfit for your in-game character, or you can pay to turn his grey gun into a gold and diamond encrusted one. I'm sure you don't mind paying a little bit of money for new games, but you probably don't want your hard-earned cash going on some cosmetic change that brings zero value!)

Of course, everyone's different, and not everyone's in the same (perilous) financial position as me, not everyone has the same values, and not everyone has the same kids, so all I can offer is my best advice. Hope it helps and hasn't totally confused you!

Thank-you so much, I totally agree with your point of view. My son is enjoying playing fifa and minecraft and being able to enter into his friends worlds games etc. So will probably want to have the gold membership. I don't give him pocket money so don't mind buying him things throughout the year, and no he won't he wasting money on a new outfit for a character. He spends most of his time outdoor so this xbox is mainly for rainy days in.
I really appreciate everyone who took the time to offer advice. Thanks again. :-)

Anyone have the current Facebook code. I don't have facebook so I can't get it. Much appreciated.

Thanks OP - saved me £5 on the Mortal Kombat X DLC!

I wonder how they get these codes so cheap.

You don't have to buy a years membership, you can get monthly subs and I'm saw a 7 month on here yesterday.
