5.0 out of 5 stars Xbox Live Gold Membership for 12 months + 1 month bonus
A bit of background info for you first...

Buying membership directly through your console using a credit/debit card is the most expensive way to pay for Xbox Live membership, Often it is full price at £39.99 for 12 months. If it's ever discounted then it usually comes with the caveat that you have to automatically renew the year after at full price. Be warned...

3.0 out of 5 stars meh
Worked after a few tries, but xbl wouldn't originally accept it, but tbh i put this down to xbl being terrible with customer service.

This review is from: Xbox Live 12 Month Gold Membership Plus 1 Bonus Month Battlefield 4 Design (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
A bit of background info for you first...

Buying membership directly through your console using a credit/debit card is the most expensive way to pay for Xbox Live membership, Often it is full price at £39.99 for 12 months. If it's ever discounted then it usually comes with the caveat that you have to automatically renew the year after at full price. Be warned trying to get Xbox/ Microsoft to stop the second years payment and to remove your card details is one of the hardest things to do and i learnt that the hard way, so the best advise i can give is to avoid the direct payment through your console altogether!

Finally onto this product, for the past several years i have only ever renewed my subscription with a pre-paid code. WHY? They are usually cheaper and give me the security that Microsoft doesn't have my card details. First thing to note is that the price to renew your membership or indeed create a new one isn't as heavily discounted as much as it use to be. A year ago i managed to purchase 12 months membership from Amazon for £28 so that shows you how much these voucher codes have gone up in price. Today as i write this the standard price across the internet seems to be £35 for 12 months, but with this one you get the bonus of an extra month free.

This is NOT a digital code whereby they E-mail it to you, this comes on a card via the post to which you scratch off the silver on the back to reveal a code to type into your console (can also be redeemed through Xbox.com if you have set your account up)

Literally once you type the code in and confirm it your account linked to your "Gamer tag" is instantly credited with 13 months of Gold Membership which allows you to play online, chat with friends and indeed use many other services. This works for both Xbox 360 and Xbox One and you only need the one membership for both consoles.

Pros: At £2.69 a month you will struggle to find it cheaper anywhere else on the internet (certainly at time of writing this) * Very easy to redeem the code * Bonus month for the same price sweetens the deal

Cons: It's no coincidence Gold membership has gone up in price, it went up around the time the Xbox One launched * Don't be fooled by the battlefield 4 packaging design, it's literally just the membership code on the card.. NOTHING MORE!!

VERDICT: If you own an Xbox 360 or Xbox One console then you will know that GOLD membership is mandatory to play online. With this particular product you are getting 13 months for the price of 12 and it's the best value one I've come across in many weeks.

RECOMMENDED!!

First things first ignore the 1 star review. Giving an item 1 star because the description wasn't read thoroughly enough is no excuse to give an item 1 star. Your getting 13 months of Xbox live for £35, which is one of the better deals for a gold account, add to the fact that you get 2 free games a month with a gold account now it is well worth the money.

13 month for the price of 12... it was a good deal.

This does not include the game or any DLC for it!

for £35 its 5 cheaper than renewing online and there is the bonus of an extra month. i have seen a few reviews from persons thinking they where getting a game aswell and can only wonder what made them think that. the description is clear and correct ive bought a number of these over the years and feel there the best deal.

better than buying online and have the code sent to you, and get a extra month, what more do you need, free online gaming from Microsoft? keep dreaming.

I changed over last year to these membership cards, as it is cheaper too purchase them with a credit / debit card, than it is too pay with a card directly!
