Xbox live gold offering 1 month free when you select auto renewal - Select accounts

Found 20th May
I don't know about the rest of you but I've been hanging onto my tesco rocket league bundle xbox live gold voucher for some time. I tend to redeem these codes when a good game comes up. Today I was offered a free month on gold if I switched auto renewal on. This was easily reversed by logging I to my live account online and switching off. So an easy free month of gold. Hope this helps

I even got this after redeeming my 3 months I got free 4 months ago and using the auto-renewal trick from before. So in other words I got 8 months for the price of 3 because I bought xbl gold on buy 3 months get 3 months free. Come to think of it I didn't buy it I traded games in at GAME. 😃
I thought you got a free month every time Live Gold is bought as long as you auto renew (then turn it straight back off)?

I've not seen this offer on my account previously.
I got a free month last month. Went to add a 3 month code I bought elsewhere and the free month offer was there again! Happy days!

I got the free month when I bought Xbox live. Then I switched off auto renew and they took away the free month. This was 2 weeks ago.
yesterday i got £26.50 for 12 month if i subscribe for auto renew, but no free month

I added a 12 month code yesterday and got offered this so took it up as I only have my payg Revolut card on my Microsoft account so they can't take the money out if it's not in.
They gave me a free extra month of game pass when I redeemed one of those Wuntu codes and left auto renewal on. They seem to offer it at random though.

Same here. I don't trust any online game services with my real card details now.
This has been an offer for months, same thing for GamePass aswell.
The last time they offered this I had the offer come up on my account so went for it. Then in january I went for the buy 3 months get 3 months for free deal. That deal was meant to be made available by 15th March at the latest. Well, between january and march 15th I got in touch with the most horrific, godforsaken, and wretched customer service in the universe - microsoft xbox support romania. They kept me waiting till march the 15th when they said I would not get one extra month because I was already a member and didn't have a screenshot so not eligible, secondly I would not get the extra 3 months because that offer was only vailable if you did not redeem another offer, and when I took it up, I was scheduled for the 1 free month offer.

During this time the romanians were rude, filthy, rotten, and lied to me. I even ended up recording their calls, and when I called the next person and said so and so promised me I would get 3 months by march, they said I needed screenshot as proof. Then I said ok I rercorded the conversation and played it back for them to which he came back and QUITE LITERALLY said as I had recorded them they were going to escalate my account as this was an offense in their eyes.

Desperate not to lose my 17 year old I left them be. However life lesson learned - NEVER give microsoft a single penny until the romanian call centre is gone and dead. Sad thing is I have 9 xbox ones and a scorpio and an xbox one x. Horrific experience.
I totally agree with MadonnaProjectalthough i dealt with their customer service via online chat. I had the PUBG 3months with 3 months free. I never got my 3 months free. Microsoft customer service are the scum of the earth. They are total liars and are not to be trusted at all. I was promised 4 times i would get my 3 months free and was told on my last conversation i could talk to the guy anytime to get it when he set the last deadline but i insisted he sent me an email instead, part of which i include below.

Thanks for contacting Xbox Support.
