Yes -- in fact, you get 5 free 1-month subscriptions with each console. However, you must create a new user account each time.
Really? How do I redeem these? I saw nothing in the box about these free 1-month subscriptions. I have a Silver membership now and have never done anything else w/ Xbox Live. I already have 2 profiles on my 360 -- one is linked to my Xbox Live and Hotmail accounts, and the other is to nothing. The one linked to Live is the one that I play all my games under, and the other is one that I don't use anymore. I can create some more if needed.
What I would like to do is figure out how to use these 5 free months... But without messing up my current Live account, which I would want to be able to use with normal, 1-year subscriptions. I heard that if you use a trial, you can't add a normal membership to that account later? Or maybe it's just that you can't do another TRIAL with that account? The FAQs on xbox.com were not too helpful in answering this -- I just want to be sure that I'll be able to use my normal account for a normal membership, once the trial period ends.
