xbox live family account

My question is.

If you already have 2 gold accounts and you upgrade 1 to the family account can you use the other account as one of the 4 or do you have to cancel it and start new?

I don't know about family accounts and if they differ, but if you have Gold on an account and add more Gold, it extends it instead of replacing it. Hopefully that applies with family account Gold as well.

I bought a family account, then added my father and girlfrind who already had their own gold accounts. The time they had left got added onto my new family plan. So we all now have 15 months before our renewal date! Hope this helps.  :)

My husband and I combined our gold account profiles with the thrird gold profile that was on our xbox. We made the third one the primary account.  Now that the family plan is discontinued, will we lose our tenure on the main two accounts once it expires?  Is there any way to keep our tenure once it expires..maybe by contacting support..could they fix it?  I'd hate to lose my tenure after all these years, it's important!!

Tenure does nothing for you. I wouldn't worry about it.

Tenure used to reset when you reverted back to silver but they don't do that anymore.  However, it will only be calculated while you have a gold membership.

If you have 5 years and revert to silver for 6 months you will still have 5 years when you add gold again.
