I recently bought an Xbox and thought that I might as well set up a new account via xbox.com before my console arrived.
My friend bought one a little after and said that he got 1 month free gold when he set up an account on his console.
Is the only way to get my 1 month of gold to create a new account and lose my achievements, saves, friend list and not being able to use the e-mail and gamertag I want, or is there a way to get it using my current account?
The account set up mentioned a free gift which would be e-mailed within 2 weeks, a quick Google told me this was an avatar toy or is it the Gold trial?
Thanks for your help.
