Deal Details

I know there are already posts in the past on this deal and people saying it's expired and other's saying that it works. I was 1 of those it wasn't working for. But I tried using my mom's Cricket cell phone that's running Android and it worked just fine. Just don't forget to turn off auto renewal. Saw other people suggesting at FatWallet to use a Mobile Device and it worked. My subscription now expires on 2/1/2014.

For those without a mobile device. Someone did mention they used Opera Mobile Emulator and it worked for them. I was going to try that but ended up just using my mom's phone.

Thanks OP Smilie Personally, I renewed a year's subscription not too long ago (expires 10/14), but for those on Silver who'd like to catch the Games for Gold free Sleeping Dogs/Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light deal starting in January, this is perfect timing. You can get both games for absolutely free combined with this if you don't already own them

Didn't see anyone even mention this in previous threads. I mentioned it in the Games with Gold for January thread though. In fact I had 1 person ask if there was a link that the same very thread. Only posting this so those that weren't able to get it to work will now be informed that there's away to get it to work. Since not everyone keeps up with old threads. And those old threads are usually filled with people saying it don't work or even the threads themselves being marked as expired.

Thank you! Did not know this worked since my code showed I could only get 1 month/$10. Going on 1+ year with free live!

took a couple tries.

did not work on my android phone (nexus 5) - gave me an option to buy one month for $9.99 or a year for $59.99. tried with chrome using User Agent Switcher extension (selected Android Handset (Droid 2)) and it worked!

Think this is a quasi-repost of a deal that never went away.

This WAS mentioned a number of times, and this is where the confusion is. There are some people this glitch has been working for, some it has not. I will personally advise against it as a former Microsoft employee who saw quite a number of people banned for glitching codes to extend live. For the naysayers: I did this on my own GT at the time, "misterseej" - check the BAN expiration date laugh out loud Banned until the year 2399, can't wait to start using it again laugh out loud laugh out loud laugh out loud

But as far as what you're saying, as OP, you see there are existing threads, but then you say you just want to make a new thread because blah blah blah...

A Duplicate Thread Is A Duplicate Thread. Period. EEK!

You'll only get banned for using the back trick, I did it month-to-month a year and nothing happened.

Is there any reason why this gave me two months of live? It expires on the 1st of February. I had no live previously.

That's the way to go Smilie

Just don't tack on more than 2 of these at a time... MS doesn't appreciate this at all laugh out loud

It may be a pain, but 1 month free trial using a 'clean' browser, disable auto renew, rinse and repeat monthly Stick Out Tongue nodCoolnod

How do you turn off auto-renew?

Don't seem to see it anywhere - I subscribed with my Paypal account.
