I think I missed my 1 month's Gold Membership free trial

Hello all!I recently bought an xbox and when I created my new gamertag I must have missed out the option to upgrade later and get a free month's trial of gold membership. Is there anyway for me to get it again? Or do I have to create a new gamertag/profile? What happens to all my currently saved games? Are those linked to my gamertag or to the hard drive (i.e. I can use those game saves in other profiles)?

Thanks!

Cliff

It depends? How many profiles have you made on that console?

3 is the maximum per each console

Yea, I created it on the console and it's the first one I created, but when I tried to join live, there was a problem connecting to the server. I think it was their problem as my other friend couldn't renew his membership that day either as the billing system was down or something. So I think I just selected live free as that was the only option I could choose at that time. So now I'm on live free but not a free month's trial of gold membership, I'm sure if I created a new profile it would let me have the free month, but do I have to transfer my game saves to the new profile? And how do I go about doing that? Also I would want to keep the profile linked to my current hotmail account (which is linked to this profile at the moment). Is this possible?

You can't add the free trial after the fact. It must be started when the profile is created.
