Any new account created on to your Xbox360 that will be used for Xbox Live is given a free 3-month subscription. This would explain why it states that your microsoft points is under "free member."

However, to actually obtain and use microsoft points for whatever your reason, you're account needs to be fully activated under a payment option of your chosing, not as a free trial version.

Did this solve your problem?

Actually when you create a new LIVE account on a new console, you get a 1 month trial. The console has three total of these. This would also show as  LIVE member on the forum (gold colored name).

OP: How did you redeem this time? Did you get a code? Did you enter it on Xbox.com or on the console?
