Xbox Live 1-month Gold Subscription - $1 (Non-Gold Members Only, YMMV)

Thread Details

I just got a new Xbox (had an old one, but it broke and my subscription has been expired). Attempted to launch Vevo (or anything that streams from the internet) and was required to get a Gold membership. Apparently they have a deal running to get 1 month of Live for $1 (90% off)

However, I'm pretty sure it's only for non-gold customers (someone with a membership ending soon can verify this, or I can in 1 month).

So, here's how to get it:

1. You must not be a current Gold member.
2. Launch the dashboard and launch Vevo (or any internet streaming app)
3. Follow the prompts to learn more about Xbox Live Gold
4. When it gives you the options, you will see that there is 1 month for $1, choose that.
5. Enjoy 1 month of Xbox Live for just $1!

Let me know if it worked or didn't work and what the circumstances were in replies!

Can you buy more than 1? How does it know if you're already a gold member? Does the new code just not work for existing Gold Members? I can't see them keeping that data base of codes, but maybe.

If I can buy more than 1, I'm willing to spend $1 to see if I can extend my existing gold membership.

These are things I have no idea of, was hoping to see if someone else can pitch in. It's not really advertised and you buy it directly through Xbox Live (so there is no code). I'm sure it's just a deal for new/returning members. This deal is more focused towards you guys whose subscriptions expired and in limbo waiting for the next $35 deal (which just sold out!)

There have been two $35 and one $30 deal that I missed in the last week. AND I even looked for one this morning before finding an expired one at lunch. URG! Mine doesn't expire until March, though. I had my xbox serviced and it came back with a 1-month gold membership card, so I entered the code and it stacked on top of my existing membership, extending it by a month. I'll try tonight to see if I can get a bunch of these, and if they stack (though not in that order). I can't do it at work, though. Xboxlive.com is blocked by IT. Mad

You gotta let us know if this price shows up for existing Gold members! I only saw it cause I was going on from an expired account (so it was "free" or Silver, whatever they call it).

Oh, I see now. The xbox dashboard. I've been trying to figure that one out, and the subconscious background processing finally came through. I will definitely check when I get home.

Totally legit, I don't have gold and got gold for $1 when going through the prompt to get the Vevo app from the marketplace. Repped!

One month is listed at $9.99 for me, luckily I jumped on the $35 deal today so I only have to wait a few more days.

These are in dashboard offers which are typically displayed after your monthly or quarterly gold membership expires. These offers may vary from $1 for 1 month to $2 for 2 months and are applicable only for a limited time only(couple of days). I have in the past signed up to both of these offers multiple times after my gold membership expiry.
But after I upgraded to 3 month memberships, these offers are no longer displayed after 3 month expiry.

Hello, im also trying to use this promo. I clearly see that it states "1 month for 1 dollar".
I try clicking the "confirm purchase" to my paypal.

Then it says "welcome to xbox live gold"...but it sits there for 2 minutes doing nothing.. then finally says "Unable to connect to Live service" or something.

I've tried SEVERAL times and it always constantly keeps saying "unable to connect" ...it's really getting on my nerves!!
help ?? Frown
