As above, where?. There is no mention of this anywhere on xbox.com from what I'm seeing.

Trust me :thumbsup: and you cant delete your card details which sucks

so can you create a new account as my sons ran out last week and i told them to wait til i get paid on fri?

On the Membership screen it says £4.99 for me

Yeah - good deal but it's a bitch to get your card details removed from your 360 afterwards and they'll keep billing the full normal monthly amount until you do so - so nice deal and I'll vote hot for that, but buyer beware! They're planning on you either not noticing or not caring enough to cancel after the 1st month...

(Now, how long before the ps3 owners jump in and starts shouting about how it should be free anyway?)

no need to create a new account
just go onto your sons account go to menu
it will say month for £3
click on that and it will then offer it to you for £1

i have it now! showing 1 month for a £1, 3 month £14.99 and a year £39.99 can this be cancelled online after the month do you know? thanks

This doesn't seem to show up as an option on my Gold account. I'd be wary of giving them my card details even if it did though. From what I've heard it's almost impossible to get your details taken off their system should you decide to cancel. My sub doesn't run out until 2012 anyways :p. Remember all 360s come with 3 1 month gold trials attached for new accounts anyway.

so its a con to get your card details so MS can rip you off

Yup, pretty much what I said.
Hot for the deal, but make sure you know what you're getting into - you're going to have to phone them toget your card details removed and to stop them repeat charging.
If you're good at that kind of thing it's a good deal. If, like most people, you're lazy/forgetful/apathetic, then you're better off buying a full year subscription elsewhere.

And I'm happy for you that you've got what you feel is a good deal.
And it is a good deal, provided you know you're going to have to cancel over the phone and most likely deal with someone asking you why you want to cancel, wouldn't you rather stay, etc etc - There's absolutely no reason Microsoft couldn't put an easy "cancel subscription" or "delete stored card details" option on the 360 - they make it easy enough to put your details in, it ought to be just as easy to remove them.
But it isn't.
Hence why I think it's important to inform people of this. (This is the one reason I do my sub via scratchcard bought from online shops when I see a good deal - MS aren't getting my card details tied into a subscription)

Honestly, I'm happy that you've got a good deal (and others if they want it) but I'd be interested to know how easy it was to cancel it at the end of the month. And even if it DOES turn out to be easy, it's still not going to be as easy as selecting a 'cancel subscription' button could have been is it?

celticfc;5518555

no need to create a new account just go onto your sons account go to menu … no need to create a new account just go onto your sons account go to menu it will say month for £3 click on that and it will then offer it to you for £1

yes that would be a good idea to have a cancel button that would make it easier
but £1 for a month is a bargain
i will wait to see you never know if i ring up to cancel they may offer it to me again for that price hahaha

No argument from me there.

Yes, you can remove them. Or rather, YOU can't; you need to ring MS up and ask them politely to remove them FOR you.
Slightly different.
The subtle distinction between the two is what gets my goat.

no YOU dont have to ring them, log into the xbox site and do it through there :roll:

good deal

As mentioned by a few members it can be a pain getting ur card details removed and took me 3 calls to get it sorted and even then they charged my card for 12 months then waited 2 weeks for a refund.

Hopefully ms have made it easier to get card details removed

Well, that's certainly news to me. How long has this been in place and can anyone else confirm it?
I belive the popular online acronym is POIDH?
A quick search online for "cancel 360 live subscription" still brings up page after page of other people finding this option didn't exist and you're the first person I've seen state otherwise.
Got a url of the page where you cancel?

From memory, I think he's right. Pretty sure I did this before, albeit a long time ago.

GigerPunk;5519170

Blimeh.
You know what?
I think I may have found it - live.xbox.com/en-…spx
Obviously, you have to be logged in, but that appears to be a page where you can "Add, remove and update your payment options."
How come there's not been any kind of big fanfare about this page existing?
Thus, I stand corrected, and shall be giving out rep to those who knew of this. I'm not above admitting I was wrong. I'm actually fairly stunned this option is there and I'd not heard a peep about it until now - has it been there long?
(Admittedly, I still don't trust MS, sods law would mean when I went to unsubscribe I wouldn't be able to find that page again

I went to look at my xbox live as soon as I saw this and there is absolutely nothing! I guess Iw as too slow to get it or just really blind and did not see it.

Are you all dumb? Getting your card details removed is easy now.. they changed it a month or two ago so you can just simply remove your card on xbox.com in the account settings section..

considering Live has been down for 24 hours, this seems yet another way of Microsoft saying 'sorry' to their loyal as hell fanbase BUT in the meantime, trying to con them into forgetting they signed up and charging them full price next month...

see;

kotaku.com/529…ues

is actually fairly easy to remove cards from the console, all you need to do is to log into the xbox live website using your gamertag email and password then go on acount management and its in there somewhere ive done it before with not much dificulty
