Found 17th Feb 2012
Just been into Asda in Hounslow and bought a 12 month Xbox Live Subscription for £29.97 Reasonable price anyway, but the box had the Fifa 12 Ultimate team logo on the front and includes 800 Microsoft points. They had loads in stock, and the girl on the till said its nationwide.

I thought thats as good a deal as you'll get without relying on the various random Dashboard deals that get posted on here.

Not that it shows much but here the receipt before people request it.

Last month, I reverted back to silver. Got option for £1 for 1 month which you can use paypal and automatically turn off auto renewal. This month, reverted back to silver, dashboard showed £2 for 2 months, turned off auto renewal.

Unless you really need it for some clan tournament, I would say - put up your bench and wait it out to see if the dashboard gets you a better offer.

WOW 800 Microsoft Points! COOL now I can change my Gamertag! Heat added....

My local is only a small store, not sure if they'll have one.

That's actually a good tip. Though is it guaranteed that you will be offered 1 month for £1 after the gold expires? You could be waiting ages and it won't come.

No, no guarantee at all. They tend to offer different deals to different people depending on your prior subscription patterns.

I had 6 months at £1 each from the glitch in summer, and then 3 months for £6 running out end of March. I bought this to register after it expires and i've seen if there is a Dashboard offer available, as if the lowest standard price you'll get it at anyway.

Heat. Though i got an amazing deal from John Lewis earlier in week. Same as above plus hdmi cable for 14.75. My wife got me two, so i have 24 months live 1600 points and 2 Ms hdmi cables for less than 30 quid.

My local Asda are doing a standard 12 months gold for £29.97, which isn't a bad deal. I think getting things like the FIFA branded extra points packs or the GOW 2 months free packs is purely pot luck as I bought a standard one and a few days later a workmate bought from the same store and got the GOW pack.

Some people have said they had done it for years but I don't know whether I exactly trust them. Heck, it can't hurt though to try. I pay for PS+ so in my eyes, anything more than £1 for xbox live which I don't use much anyway is far too much money.

Hi,

Do you have the item codes from your receipt (or better still a copy of your receipt) as I spoke to my local John Lewis and they said they'd honour the same deal if I had these details? Many thanks for your help - my 10yr old Son would be over the moon if we managed to get this deal (he's paying for it out of his pocket money so loves a bargain)

Thanks OP, just spotted your other post with all the details- fingers crossed I can manage to get one when I phone them back.
