While I was creating my account I was offered one free month of XBL. However, I didn't have a credit card handy during the sign up process, so I just skipped it & figured I'd do it later, but now it wants to charge me the full $60 for a year. Am I missing
something or is the offer only valid during that specific step in the sign up progress? Seems stupid if it is.
A. You have one chance with each new Microsoft Account, so you have used up that chance.
B. If your Xbox360 has not used up the three chances, you can create a brand new Microsoft Account at
C. Then use that addresse to convert a no-LIVE, local profile on your Xbox to a new Xbox LIVE account and then sign up for Xbox LIVE Gold. You will see a choice, somewhere in the process, which says NO THANKS - choose that and you will be offered a one month
free trial for Xbox LIVE GOLD.
