We're excited to announce that we've fully migrated the Xbox Forums to their new home, here on the Microsoft Community forums!
As of today, going to forums.xbox.com will redirect you here to the Xbox area of the Community forums. We've moved all of your existing threads over so you can continue and start conversations with the new forums experience.
We sincerely appreciate the feedback you have provided over this transition and can't wait for you to check out the new Xbox Forums!
If you were prompted for a for a free trial when you created you account you should actually be offered a free month of gold. As long as the account is brand new and has never been signed up on Xbox Live you should get that offer. If it is not prompting
you on your console then you may be able to get it through Xbox.com.
By going to the top of the page hover over Xbox Live Gold,
the option at the bottom says join Xbox Live and you click on that,
it should bring you up to the page when you can choose memberships for you account and there you should find the offer for a free month of Xbox Live gold.
Note that once you sign up for the free one month trial you will be automatically billed for another month at the end of your trial, which most people seem to not know so just gonna put that out there for you to know. Hope this helps.
