You also get £3 off the purchase price for every month of gold you've already paid for on your account. i.e bought 12 month sub 2 months ago = £30 off the £69.99.


Family pack confirmed as expected today, not sure where you can purchase it just yet but its worth holding off if you are about to buy a couple.
General price for 1 12 month subscription is £34.99

Seperate codes?

Seperate codes?



Haven't a clue, just trying to get some info on it now.

Great if 4 seperate codes

Not sure how this would work but doubt there would be 4 separate codes for this otherwise everybody will just buy them and sell on ebay.

im guessing this will be for 4 users on one console save someone paying £40 per user on the family console

I doubt its 4 separate codes, that would be too good.

I assume all the accounts would have to be linked together through something called family centre.

I've got 3 in the house so £23.30 for a year of xbox live is good.

Struggling to find anywhere to actually buy this though, obviously will be available through dashboard but wonder if Amazon play etc will be able to sell it under RRP.

Its not on the one console, one xbox will be in charge and can put parental guidance on the others, only if you wish obviously.

Thanks for the heads up but as this isn't a deal it should be in Misc....

Suspect it won't be seperate codes - ebay would be flooded with them and the price would be driven down....

Just seen that aswell, family exclusive content and discounts aswell according to cvg

Moved to misc until a confirmed seller is found, then use the report button to get it moved back

That sounds like a great deal, thanks for the heads up

Sounds great, but if it's locked to one console you have to be mad to pay 4 times for one person to use live at anyone time.

Has anyone actually been able to access this, my gold runs out/auto renews tonight and i would rather get this..its not giving me the option on the dashboard anywhere, microsoft site is saying it is available, but in my account management its still only the single user

Try and nab a 4 hour from somewhere.

Moved back to deals as this appears to be advertised on dashboard now, thanks again.

Hi all

When I turned my xbox on this morning the deal showed as 13 months family pack gold plus 1000 points for £69.99, I should have bought it then as it has now gone, I rang xbox cust serv and they said 'oops that should not have appeared YET, must be a mistake, it will appear again soon'

Edited by: "Starr" 3rd Nov 2010

is it on the dashboard or just or just teh comp...can wait a week if theres gonna be a better offer ie the 13m + Points

just checked, it is on the dash, ill deal with it after tea, it said it would give me £9 discount as i have 3m gold (which i put on last night)

They didn't tell me when the 13m + points 'should' be offered, just that it shouldn't have appeared yet and that I should probably wait for it.

The 13m+points would have been my first deal post but the mods found this post and didn't want to double post (sob)

ah wondering weather to hold off for a week now, i was thinking yesterday its gonna be a deal thats out teh same time as kinnect, wonder if i get it now then winge if it goes on offfer...or i may just call and ask what they say

is there a landline for xbox live or just teh 0800 number

Aha, I am not alone, started to think I was seeing things

Xbox Forums

im calling them now to see what they say

No answer after 15min and im on a mobile so didnt want to hang on any longer

Right i did it

i called them and got through and told them i already was due to change to a new 12m single package today, so had put a 3m prepaid on last night to buy some time, as it was not out yesterday.
I asked if i could have the 13m family deal, they said i can only have it if im on silver, and i would have to cancel my 3m gold with no refund etc.

So i asked if i was allowed to add existing accounts they said yes.

So the main account which has gold already is my hubbys, i have an account on silver, i used that account, and bought using that and added hubby on as a second user, his 3m gold cancelled equated into an extra month of family time.

All the profiles have to be on one computer to add them and then by the looks of it get dispersed back to individual machines

I now need to add the kids, their profiles are on their own comps so need to figure out how to get their profile on my main machine, think i may be allowed to just recover their tag to mine and add and then recover it back to their machine

Was pretty painless to set up once it popped up on dashboard

Fantastic

Did you get 1000 points too?

Yes, so 12+1m then a further 1m and the 1000points

so this cant be per console? it all has to be on one console with seperate gamertags?

Fantastic :DDid you get 1000 points too?



ah just clicked on your commenting on the xbox forum thread too, lol, added the info there too

can be either, you can have them all on one console or all on different, all profiles just have to be on the one console for the initial add, then you can disperse them back

yes just did it, its easy, i just recovere the kids gamertags and then signed into my account and added them, and ill they have to recover them back tommorrow (they are in bed now)

all seems easier than expected

Got it X)

We are a family of 3 so I added a guest account yesterday and it received its 1 month gold free trial and it has even added that 1 month to the end of my subscription as well as an extra 3 months for hubby's current gold!
Edited by: "MiniEmma" 4th Nov 2010

mine seemed to add on 1m extra per 1m of single gold rather than 2m of single gold...paid up til April 2012...on a family gold what a bonus

I don't seem to have received the 1000 points! Have you?

edit: oops, apparently it told me they would appear in 6-8 weeks
