Xbox Live Free Download Redeem code not working.

Here's the deal,

ONE year ago, I received a Halo Reach special edition Xbox 360, with 3(three) Free download codes. SO far, one has worked, and it unlocked the Recon Armor, the second one, to allow for a free movie download (Halo Legends: The Package), and that did not work. The code was tried three times, to no avail. I have not tried the third one (Xbox Live Gold ~something or other~), and I'm saving that for a rainy day. Could it be expired, and if so, is there any way to be compensated for the code not working? Or is the code still good, and I'm just stupid enough to not make it work?

Thank you for your time and patience.

Regards,

James

Have you tried using the code both on your console and on the site here?  If you've used the code on the console, what was the error code you received.  And yes, it is possible that the codes have expired.  Some codes do have expiry dates.  If they are expired, there is no compensation.

I just tried using a 2 day Live Gold code from Halo Reach,.........used the c`puter online redeem method.........it accepted the code,.....but didn`t change me over to Gold.

I contacted support by phone,......after going through the motions,...they come back and say the 2 day Live Gold offer is tied to having the Halo Reach game.....and since I don`t have the game I don`t get the 2 day Gold offer........WHAT?

This can`t be so,can it?

I`ve never seen a 2 day Live Gold offer being tied to any previous game of any types before have you?

seems like a poor idea business wise. I give mine to people that don't have gold but might consider buying it.

I friend gave me the card so I could download some demos,......future sales for XBox,.......but no.........I tried to explain that there was no indication at all that the 2 day Live Gold Pass  was tied to the Halo game,.....and still don`t believe it.

Poor form Xbox Live........poor form.

A 48 hour trial code does not switch your account to gold but does give you gold privileges.  I have no idea what the person at support was talking about when they said that the trial was attached to Halo and you couldn't have it.  I think he may have just been blowing smoke because he didn't know the answer to your question.

I have tried, but all I get is a less than plesent "Error, you found a glitch in the sustem" love letter. Perhaps it is expired, oh well, I still got an Xbox 360, and asweet game, and a free Recon Helmet no less. It's all good. :)

I submitted another 48 hr Live Gold Pass,.....this one from NHL09 ,......no expiry date on it,....nothing in the fine print.

XBox Live 'accepted'   the code but then again did not give me the gold priviledges.

I`ve contacted support again,by email,...but that is looking fairly futile.

It`s a lame way to do business,......and I`m sure the BBB might be interested in this type of practice.

Since MS and most large companies now don`t belong to the BBB they are indifferent to what the BBB says. The BBB was designed to resolve disputes between small family run business and their customers. Having a sign up in your shop saying you are a member of the BBB use to matter. Large international corporations are indifferent at best to the views and recommendations of the BBB
