Purchase Xbox Live 40% online?

Currently on the Xbox marketplace you are able to purchase Xbox Live for 40% off. I'd like to purchase this, but I do not want to put my credit information through my Xbox(for many reasons). I logged into the Xbox website to upgrade this account to gold, but only the standard prices are available. Is the only way to get this deal truly to purchase it through my Xbox?

That is full of disappoint. Any specific reason I can't purchase it through the Xbox website instead?

I'm not sure why they don't have promotions available through the website.

From what I understand when you buy it through the dashboard you are actually buying a subscription, not a set amount of time. You need to call Xbox and explain why you're canceling your subscription, which is pretty ridiculous if you ask me.

Purchasing from the website does the same thing. You would have to purchase a prepaid card if you don't want to turn on auto-renewal.

I also just wanted to add, that even if you didn't want to use your credit card on the console, once you purchase the gold through the website your card would be attached to your account. So you would still be able to access the card through the console.
