How to free up Gamertag?

Have question been stumbling me for awhile

Q: How do I free up my other gamertag name connected to other Windows id?

- Like, I have 2 Accounts, my Silver one & my Gold

This one is SL33P4H ISIIKIz - my other one is SLEEPAH

I want to Free up "SLEEPAH" name, and be able to change my SL33P4H ISIIKIz to SLEEPAH.

Sounds simple, but only way I could figure out is by dishing out over $40 in points just to do so..which is quite stupid if I have both gamertags

I already tried closing email account connected to SLEEPAH, and deleted from hard drive..still no luck

So I signed back into email to re-active email account.

 

Any help would be much appreciated - I don't want to buy 2 Microsoft Cards of 1400points to change names lol

it would just waste the left over points and cash

Xbox do not allow free name changes.

You will need to dish out the points.

Currently Xbox is having a 30% off sale on this so no is the time to get it done.

Yes, I know about the special

I already have both gamertags / looking to put closure on SLEEPAH (to free the name up)

and change my SL33P4H ISIIKIz to SLEEPAH

I

the special is 560 ms points

Only payment options are 500 - 1000 - 2000

so I would be wasting points & money, when I own both gamertags and just want to free one up and spends points on this account and change name to SLEEPAH you know?

the special makes you buy 1000 from xbox or 1400 from store to change the name on that special

The only way would be to change the name on the gamertag that you want to something else (this will free it up for your other account) and quickly change the name of your current gamertag and change it to the one that you want.

So technically you will be changing the gamertags twice, one for each account.
