Upon filling all the information out, putting in a payment method, and clicking confirm on the last screen, It asked me for a security code from my email again, and upon putting it in, took me to the normal join xboxlive gold page, with the regular payment plans listed. Did not credit me with my gold status, or free month.
Is this normally something you have to wait for? Or is something wrong and the deal screwed me?
