I recently purchased a new Xbox 360, and the first thing I thought to do would be to get a gold membership so I could actually play online! So I was looking for my best option and I noticed that there was a "family pack" or something I could purchase that would allow 4 people for the price of less than 2. "Awesome", I thought to myself. The issue being, it'd only be myself and my sister using the console. So there would be two 12 month subscriptions wasted. This leads me to my questions.
1.) If I purchase this, will they mail/email/provide me with codes to redeem in order to activate it?
2.) If so, is there an expiry date for these? For example, would I be able to use one of the spares when my original 12 months ran out?
3.) Is there a way, instead of having 2 people for 12 months and wasting 2 other subscriptions, of just have 2 people with 24 month subscriptions?
Thanks in advance guys.
