Xbox Live Reduction 12 Months - £26.50 @ Xbox Dashboard

93
Found 23rd Mar 2017
I've seen this before with other people previously this year so decided to test it.

Kept checking everyday to see if 12 months live reduced and low and behold with just 3 days remaining, I'm offered a chance to renew 12 months for just £26.50....

Please note if you do try this that it does set you up for a 12 month subscription renewal at £39.99 but that can be cancelled very easily via web or in console management settings.

Just managed to do it online myself following your link! First time I've ever been eligible which is nice. Shame you can't stack them lol

EDIT: I was actually able to stack this twice so there's years worth if you want them!

hot, not as hot as a year for free, but i would have pounced on this if i didnt get that argos/trade in at game deal a few days ago, this should help quite a few people to renew their membership for a fair price though if it works!
Just checked and I've been offered it as well! Mine runs out in September so not sure whether to grab this price now and add on 12 months haha
looked under 12 months Gold on the website, £26.50, excellent thanks!

I clicked Xbox Live from the main tabs and then Join Xbox live and followed the pages through to extend my sub and the deal was there ready!
I was just able to stack this twice as well for anyone that wants to buy a couple of years worth!
following instructions in comments this just worked for me too. my live expired 4 days ago and been checking my dashboard daily for 2 weeks and nothing showing there. hot hot hot!
yep can confirm its "stackable"
Nice there for me at last with 3 days gold remaining.
Log in to the UK page, click Join Live, comes up in $, change page to UK....keeps repeating! Damn you Microsoft! Maybe their mobile page is broken
Good deal if you can get it.

My live ran out last month, had the option of 1 month for £1, waited in the hope that I would get this offer, but it has just reverted to the standard price. Have enough games I need to finish to keep me going though...
£39.99 for me
Managed to do it on desktop, although they charged me £26.66! Robbing me of 16p....how dare them
I've got Gold until 8th February 2018 and I can still get the offer. Not that I really need it.
I keep getting redirected to the US site and it shows $39, any way to stay in the UK site?

I noticed that as well! Did you pay with paypal by any chance? Only thing I could think of. That are inflation is really starting to kick in swiftly nowadays.

I did indeed pay via PayPal, but no additional tax or charges were mentioned it's only 32p as I stacked them...can't even get a Freddo for that anymore so no big loss
Took me awhile to find it. Finally did and it's £26.50, now do I buy it haha!
Thanks! went on the xbox website and i got the deal
I've just got an Xbox One for my 6 year-old who loves Minecraft. Can anyone advise me if I should be buying xbox live for it?
Sorry but these dashboard Xbox Live deals really annoy me as they are so targeted and seem dependant upon your membership being extremely close to expired so only the disorganised (or those not bothered about having Gold) benefit. The existing loyal customers that like to keep their membership topped up get shafted with full price.

Wish if they wanted to do a promotion on gold membership they would just give it to everyone regardless of the amount left on their sub.

Like most of these heavily targeted deals, nice if you can get it, but the problem is most can't....
Mine doesn't run out till 02/2018 and it's showing up as £26.50 for me as well. Once I signed in I saw the prices after selecting 12 months from the drop down list.

Xbox Live > Join Xbox Live Gold > Select 12 months

Edit: This is via the desktop by visiting Xbox.com

Just checked and I DO actually have it, so i was totally wrong this time, seems like it is an existing gold member offer as it shows the standard £39.99 before signing in. Great price!

Yes. The free games alone make it good value in my opinion.
Cool, mine ran out in Feb, logged into the site and the deal was there waiting!
£26.50 on the front page, stacked quite nicely so my subscription now expires November 2018. However it also charged me £26.66. That was a payment by credit card in GBP, so not sure where the extra money comes from.

Whilst I do agree, this particular one seems to work for most people, so give it a go. But yes, as with most things the offers are set up for new business not to retain business. Car insurance is another one, I've yet to stay with an insurer for two years in a row purely because they're never competitive on renewal.

Spoke to them on live chat, apparently it's tax on the subscription that's not mentioned anywhere under their T&C's. Only 16p I guess...

"As per our chat today the reason you got charged for that amount is because it's for the Tax on the Subscription that you have purchased for Xbox Live."
Worked for me through the website also, and I had a couple of months to go. Much heat, thanks
it worked for me as well... question has anyone tried to buy it twice? I've bought it but it still shows as 26.50 for xbox gold.
bought it twice here and now have 2 years expire date
Mine doesn't run out till October 18 and I've been offered it.
I thought this was gonna be another account specific deal but worked for me using desktop site. Like others have said, it's stackable so got two years for £53 which was great timing as my sub was up at the end of march. Thanks for posting OP
It says it's going to charge me 26.50 for first year and then 39.99 after that. Is this correct? How would I buy two years worth now in that case?
I currently have a 3 month live until end of June. Thanks for the help in advance - new to xbox.
Thanks for the info OP. Voted Hot.

I managed to get one purchase in. For some reason I couldn't stack a second purchase on even though my subscription runs out in June 2019.
