Xbox live gold 12m £26.50 via Microsoft direct (account specific)

Edited by:"Rogue_22"Found 19th Oct
Had email this morning informing me my gold had expired so did the usual Google and shop around(of course found the deal currently on here for £29.99)
But as I am signed up to Microsoft Rewards therefore buying direct would earn points so thought “I’ll click the renew link” and to my surprise it was even cheaper direct with Microsoft!2814555.jpg

Yet again is account specific. I know it’s exciting but can we stop posting these please? All it does is get people annoyed cause they don’t have access to it

Sorry I have to vote Cold. It’s account specific.

Sorry but how is someone supposed to know this information?
Surely if someone is in the same situation as me and looking to renew then it’s a good deal??!
Just because not everyone will benifit does not make it a bad/cold deal that’s not what this site is about is it?

Cold from me I'm afraid. Good for you I suppose but bad for me 😔

Thanks for sharing @Rogue_22 . We have many deals posted that are only available by invite only, so for those Microsoft Rewards members who may need to renew their gold membership shortly it's way of highlighting that they should check their accounts to see if they've had this offer invite too

even if account specific it at least might help someone!

Because these account specific offers appear on YOUR dashboard. That is how YOU'LL know about them.

Thanks for the heads up OP. Just renewed at £26.50 and im not part of any reward program.

Don't forget to go through TCB first, for £8 cashback.

Thanks for the positive comment 🏻
I dont think this is just for rewards members, it just so happens if you renew via MS direct you get points in the reward scheme hence why I went looking down that route and there’s was this offer how I was supposed to know it is account specific is beyond me because nowhere was it mentioned

I don’t understand why people vote cold when this offer is posted. I recently renewed my Gold membership and I was able to get it discounted thanks to someone posting it on here. I hadn’t received an email about the offer, it was through the console only. I hadn’t been on my console for a little while so I hadn’t seen the offer. If it hadn’t been posted on here, I wouldn’t have known about it and would have paid full price. I don’t know why people on here moan just because offers aren’t available for everyone or only available in certain stores or locations. If some people can benefit then I think it should be posted. We can’t all be lucky all the time and we shouldn’t begrudge others.

Except if you buy elsewhere because you didn’t realise that there could be a deal available

Great find. I didn’t think to check this. I was just about to pay more when I saw this and thought it was worth a try and I too got it for £26.50. Just shows it’s worth posting account specific after all.

I had no idea it was account specific when I posted this, I guess the ones voting cold are the ones who hoped they could buy this now and stack up BEFORE their Gold expires??
This actually shows it’s worth letting it expire 1st!
Have to say its quite disheartening but just shows that unless you post something EVERYONE registered can get it’s not worth posting at all....... kinda defeats object of this site surely

Hi! I actually checked because you posted and found I had the deal (my live account expires on the 25th) so many thanks to you

So I’m thinking this is not account specific but more along the lines of if your gold is about to expire.......

I just went on chat asked them as was coming up @ £39.99 they did it for £26.50. I’m not a rewards member. Thanks.

Wrong. Mine showed at £39,99. Went on chat they reduced it too £26.50. So no it ain’t on ur dashboard.

Load of rubbish I asked Xbox and they said its account specific and I showed them your comment. I, like a lot of people on here who don’t get offered this, have been good members for years and been with rewards since it started.

I think you can stack 3 years worth or something like that but I don't think this offer is supposed to be redeemed more than once ie the website should stop offering it after taht.

I was actually charged £26.66 for each sub but cant complain, everything is going up in price these days..

Thanks for the info. Managed to get him one :-)

Yep I’ve got live till Oct 2020 cause I used 6 vouchers at once a few years ago works with PlayStation plus aswell and with credit I case you didn’t realise. No offence just you’d be massively surprised how many people don’t realise lol

I believe you was the one that was wrong. Saying a load of rubbish when clearly it isn’t. I’m sorry you didn’t get a discount. Maybe if you had the attitude you brought into this thread for no reason that might be why you didn’t get it. Hardly name calling pointing out a fact. Any how can’t be arsed to talk to trolls so enjoy your expensive Xbox Live

They don't always

Next thing people will be posting complaining saying you shouldn't post deals that require you to buy an Xbox....

Didn't know xbox rewards was a thing. Signed up for it and will take my chances with cheaper renew. My Gold has just expired, and I use online features so infrequently that I've set 30 quid as my maximum price for a years sub.
Fingers crossed. Have some heat.

I’m on firmer ground with PlayStation lol. Good to know if any more deals come up though ya xx

Check what? It literally shows up as soon as you start up your Xbox it’s on the right side of the screen on the new dashboard

So I’m a troll for pointing out your spreading rubbish? You said you contacted Xbox and they gave you this promotional price which is account specific. I said your talking rubbish because I asked them and so did quite a few others on here who got the exact same response.

Why don’t you try growing up eh? I would say tw8t is name calling and if you don’t see it like that then you really are a 5 year old so don’t see why your spreading false information when your parents will be paying for it for ya
