XBOX Live Gold Free Trial without credit card

So I just bought a brand new XBOX and made an account for the first time, I want to get on XBOX live Gold and start playing online, I apparently get a free 30 day trial of xbox live gold. It asked me if I wanted it, I said yes, but then I have to either enter credit card information, or redeem code, I just want to use the free trial and don't want to pay for it at this time. Any way of using the free trial without entering billing information?

You are required to have a valid payment method in case you decide to continue using the service. As long as auto-renew is turned off you will not be charged. After the free month you can remove the information should you decide not to continue with gold. It is indeed a free trial as no funds are actually transferred during that free month.

I think you should add that you will not be charged  'in certain scenarios' to this. Apparently, they can change your setting anytime they deem fit. Read my post labeled 'Auto-Renewal Trap' to avoid Bait and Switch tactics. I'm not a happy camper right now.
