Bilingl Information


Can anyone answer why Microsoft requires you to put your visa card details in order to gain the 30 day trial when creating an account?

 Was on kinect yesterday and my cousin wanted an xbox live account, so I set her one up but she wanted to try the trail so went through,

and it asked for the card details, which I want to know why?

I never had to do this 4, 5 years ago when I set my account up, know do I want to put my details for billing information online?

(sorry for the bad grammar)

Hi there,

it is something that was changed not that long a go, but currently the free month trial needs a payment option, since it still is a subscription and will automatic renew at the end of the period, and the payment option will be charged for the next period.

So if you want to use that free month trial, a payment option is necessary, if you don't want to have it renew at the end of the month, you will need to turn off the automatic renewall before the end end of the period.

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.

Great! Thanks for marking this as the answer.
