Must have Facebook and currently not a Gold member. Credit card required and will automatically bill at 9.99/mo after the free month. All in the fine print.

My subscription ended yesterday, and I had no plans on renewing... but I'll take one more month at no cost to me.

Signed up anyways - if a month goes through then it just adds the end of my others. I think I am going on a 36 month subscription right now.

Would've been a good deal, but there is no way to cancel an xbox subscription without calling their 1-800 number. Really annoying, when you use your credit card one time they'll try to make it pay whenever your gold runs out.

@verkato: You should be able to turn off automatic renewal by logging in to https://live.xbox.com and clicking "My Account". Then there will be a link to change your automatic renewal setting. It's there for me, anyway.

@agent019: "offer good only to eligible legal U.S. residents (including D.C.), 18 years or older, who are currently non-Xbox LIVE Gold and Xbox LIVE Gold trial members only at time of entry"

hopefully you didn't just lose all your other months...

I got an error and was told by customer service chat that I wasn't eligible because I had previously had a gold trial. I personally think that is BS as when I had to cancel(because it red ringed) in the middle of my 3 free months I got through the process provided here previously, the CS rep seemed incredulous that I had 3 months. After I replaced the xbox I got an offer for a free month to come back to gold and got the same error when I tried to take advantage of it. Gee, I love my PS3.

@jockovonred: It won't let you use the code if your already an active Gold member. It says code invalid or cannot use this code with your account.

I realize I'm the last person on earth without a Facebook account, but why cant having a live account be enough? Isn't Facebook already headed the way of myspace? Great deal, but pass.

@verkato: That's not true anymore. They recently updated xbox.com to allow everyone to turn off auto-renew.

@spawn08: Just as hackable as XBox Live.
