Free Xbox Live 1 Month Trial
My xbox live ran out and so I went onto the website to have a look around and to my delight found that they were offering a free month trial.

1.) Visit the xbox website and sign into your account.
2.) Click My account in the top right
3.) Go into the subscriptions area.
4.) Click onto get gold.
5.) There will be an option at the top for the free 1 month trial. Click that and follow the instructions.

You will need to enter a payment method as it sets up a automatic renewal once it runs out. The automatic renewal can be turned off though once you have the trial set up by finding the option within your subscription area (this can be done at any time).

If you have already redeemed an offer like this in the past, I'm not sure if you will be able to again but it's worth a try. The offer is also only available to those who do not currently have a gold account.

Very good find, lots of heat

Nice one. Thanks OP

My gold ran out about 2 weeks ago but its showing up at £5.99 for me.

That's a shame. Have you had a trial on xbox live before? Has this worked for anyone else?

It's the 1 month you get free when making an Xbox Live account.

This has been around since 2006.

That's not the creating an account method. This method allows any account that is not currently gold get free golden for one month. I did it previously on different account and my main one.

If it says a price, try later on or in few days . It didn't work for me when I first tried , came back in few days and it was free, you need your bank details and remember to take auto renewal off

Handy if your skint and can't pay the xbox tax. Have some heat!

Won't let me have it without adding card details and accepting that it will renew each month at the full going rate. Shame as MS have chronically messed me about with card payments before so a bit reluctant to give em the details again.

That aside from a personal perspective, hot from me for a freebie - but overpriced if you let the renewal go through at £5.99 a month

This is all I can see

Brilliant. It worked on an account that previously had a free one-month offer.

works like a charm,cheers bud

how do I cancel auto renewal?

Can see the offer, but can;t complete checkout as it is USA based and doesn't recognize my post code and state/province choices are USA only? How did you get around this?

Great find just be aware of auto renewal.

You need to use the UK version of the website, that then lets you enter UK details:

account.xbox.com/en-…=-1

And I can confirm it works a treat.

Oh and you can go into the Account settings to disable auto renewal right after your order:

thanks op!

Nah, not working for me at the UK website - it wants £5.99 for a month.

Not working on my daughter's account, which expired a couple of months ago.

Has always been around, just depends if people have used trials many times before really.
Hit and miss.

Bit w*nk though - some people get offered it, others do not. Makes me think that Microsoft thinks that I am a mug.

everyone gets 1 free month (3 accounts per console) if you had yours at the start then it wont work now but if you initinally paid then you will

Thanks (_;) ......

I had a trial when I got my account, and have had about 4/5 trials since then, either free or 99p.

thanks OP
