Can't activate my 1 month free trial

So here's the deal: About a month ago, i created this account on my xbox and at first it offers one month of free trial, naturally. I didn't activate it cause at that time i didn't have any games worthy of wasting my gold membership on so i chose not to. Today, i wanted to activate the free trial to play online but i couldn't find it anywhere, the only options being buying subscriptions of 1 month, 3 months and 1 year. Is it possible that i lost my "chance" of activating the trial?

Btw, this is the second or third (at most) account on my current console, so i should be entitled (theoretically) to the free trial, correct? Also, i don't own any credit cards, paypal or things of that matter.

As I said above, the offer is only available the first time.

However, you can occasionally find on the Dashboard special offers of discounted Live memberships - or free codes in select games - that will allow you to get Gold at a cheaper rate.

like what games?

same thing with me. And that's my only other hope to see xbox live. until I find my lost 14 day free trial card... now I can see how Microsoft is really ripping people off. I get FREE multi-player on PC!

It's possible the trial included in the Titanfall does not work if you already have a current Gold subscription (which you both seem to have right now), in which case it will say this on the card. Have a read of the Terms on it, and if it does then you would only be able to redeem on a Silver account. (or you could keep it until your current sub expires.)

That said, don't revive old threads, it's not a good practice. Instead, make your own thread for your own issue(s), it helps keep the support forums tidy and easier to respond to :)

Give it another try. If this happens again, let us know by entering the code below at xbox.com/errorhelp so we can investigate.

My account is at silver as of now, so i was just wondering if you lose the ability to redeem your trial if you don't pick it when you're first asked, like one of the other comments suggests... it is a real bummer if something like that is true. I will probably be forced to buy a prepaid code for sure. Also, i have past experience with xbl cause i had another account for about 3 years until it came to a complete shutdown thanks to Yahoo's genius of deleting email addresses when they're not used for a long time, so i am stuck with a second profile which encountered this very problem i presented and i am very disappointed at MS for making such a simple thing so complicated for us simpletons...
