OP, you might want to add that the 3-month code gets added to your cart. I didn't see any mention of the promo bonus on the page, but then when i added the $50 to my cart, the cart showed the extra code.

I'm trying to work out the math... assuming I'm buying my 12-month subs at $40, that's 4 x 3-months at... $10 a piece. So if you look at the value assuming these standards, that's the equivalent of 20% off the $50 card? Not too shabby.

EDIT: I've been corrected.

It's 16.67% off. $60 value for $50.
1-(50/60)=0.1667 or 16.67%

Ah, you're right. It was late and math is hard. Even though it's only 3.x% difference, it seems not as good now--we see 15% off deals on MS credit fairly regularly these days. I suppose if one was in desperate need of that subscription time then it's a fair deal.

No, you are correct, if we take the lowest price from a reputable site that is $40, then the value of 3 months will be $10.

So if I pay $50 for a $50 gift card + a 3 month live gold, its the same like kpaying $40 for the $50 gift card + $10 for the 3 months XLG, so its a 20% discount on the gift card.

If you see that way, but no, its a 20% off on the gift card + getting a 3 month xbox live gold card for the lowest price ever.
