On xmas 2010 i decided to get xbox live on a 12-month Gold membership in the uk on a low price deal on xbox live but it came with a auto renew for full price for end of this years 12 month subscription.I had a one month card and that put my renew date from 24/12/11 to 24/1/12 and i was wondering if i got a 12 month card if it would cancel the 12 month auto renew or just make me do it next year for the full price of £39.99?I would have looked at the terms and conditions i had in a email but i lost them ages ago due to a reformat so if anyone did the same please copy and paste them :)And one last thing what is the best way to get your cards and auto renew Canseld off there servers i dont mind getting points that way but auto membership is a bitch. Last time my card exspired so they could not auto renew so they blocked me out 100% and did not put me back to silver as i thourt they would but i ended up useing a prepayed 12 month card then later got suckerd in with the cheap xmas day gold offer in 2010....................doh

it shouldn't charge your card least i haven't had that experience after going to the cards but still having my debit card on file with them. i moved to buying the cards after amazon had a big sale a few years back an haven't had a issue since. I just always buy a new card before its time to renew.not sure of how to get your card off the account though even with talking to customer service unless you raise a big stink about it. if worse comes to worse though an they tell you that you have to have a card on file what i would do is get one of those gift visa cards and use that then delete your credit card that way they have something but its nothing you care about.

I wish! I just got Saints Row the Third and had to cash in a bunch of 48hr passes to play co-op with my brother in the next room. System-link wasn't working with our network set up. Now we're going to try a direct connection with a cross-wire adapter. Hopefully that works. Back on topic, I'll be keeping an eye on my email account for a code. Sadly, most of the deals don't apply in Canadia.

Hmm, maybe they are randomly sending them out or to people who once had Live but hadn't renewed in a while. I'm liking the "apps" they have (EPSN, Facebook, Youtube, etc) and the way the new Dashboard is. Been trying out some online demos since I don't really have a new 360 game with Multi to play. I have Reach and Brotherhood still though.

If that's the case then I guess the 48hr passes reset my "clock". Hm. Oh well, I'll probably get a 3mo pass over summer or something.
