12 month live prepaid membership. Not able to get free gold games?
I got an email from xbox live about getting halo 3 free when i tried to it said i had no payment info on file & wanted a credit card. Can I not get the free game even when I paid the 59.99 for the 12 month live gold membership? Because i am new to this
and have no clue
Since the switch from MS points to currency, you will need to have a CC, prepaid cc, debit card on file for free stuff due to tax purposes on MS's end. Nothing will be charged to you at ll, but a card of some kind is required.
INDEED!!!! Preauth is a thing so "ANY" card will not work. Free to GOLD is just that. No need for more than one topic btw.... Try changing the payment method..... I heard that may help. A HDD with enough room is also required. It's a big download that
may take a long while... What message do you receive????
