New Xbox Live Trial, questions regarding subscription

I have just setup my new Xbox 360 and signed up for a free 1-month xbox live gold trial. There is currently an offer in the dashboard which offers another month of Gold for just 1GBP and also two free games (MAW and Snoopy Flying Ace).

However, it requires a cc to be registered with them and I heard that it is a hassle to cancel the recurring payments with MS? Is that true? Is it worth going for this deal?

Go for it, only took a phone call for me recently to their free number to turn off auto renewal.

Don't listen to the people who can't understand you need to ring them now, it's really not that hard.

I have no experience with xbox live. even if you have to ring them and ask them to dispose of your details they will then have no right to keep and process your details. Good deal take them up on it

Thanks for the replies. I've just realised that you can also redeem a code from your prepaid card but im not sure how that works. Do they sell 1GBP prepaid cards? If I have a 12 months prepaid card and redeem it, what would happen?

The hassle is that you need to ring and ask the auto payments to be stopped rather than being able to stop it on the dashboard.

I know this was the case with the old premium so don't know if it's still true but the 'free one month gold' could be used on three 'new' gamertags so essentially giving you 90 days of gold (if you set up a new one after the old one turns silver). Each must be a new tag though.
