So I bought an Xbox live gold subscription on September 10. I let auto-renewal start and at first I wasn't billed until November 10. I was thinking that my first month of live was free, therefore I would start paying for the month of November in November. About 3 weeks ago I turned off auto-renewal, yet today I see a pending charge on my credit statement for an xbox live subscription for December 10.
My question is does xbox bill me when the month is over, or on the day that I subscribe/renew to it. If xbox bills me on the date of subscription/renewal, why would they put a $9.99 pending transaction on my card if auto-renew is turned off?
