XBL - 1 Month for £1


Recommended Posts

My gold account expired a couple of days ago and this deal appeared on the dashboard at the same time saying I could renew for £1, so I assumed it only became available due to my account lapsing. Didn't realise I could keep topping up with it though, I only did it once! Cheers Outy.

Good stuff matey!

Just got this though: "Uh Oh, you found a glitch in the system" - Any ideas on a workaround?

Not to put a dampener on things but could this not being another hack?

it might have worked. I got that will all four of my orders.

So you're saying Microsoft have purposely written off a whole load of future income for a short-term quick burst of cash?

They should have just used Quickquid.

Also, beware everyone, it shoves a autorenew of £5.99 on (I'm guessing that's per month, I've just checked it on my console). I am expecting xbox fielding a lot of calls from mukkers soon! :D

You can just cancel auto-renews through the dashboard can't you?

[edit]

Its been down for a while for me now, I'm only renewed up to mid-2012 =(

I got another 6 months or so; not so bad then I guess.

Rather annoyed I was going to go for 20; but I had no internet where I was and my phone signal was awful.

Anyone else get their Credit Card blocked due to the number of £1 transactions appearing? :)

I'm hoping that all the paypal ones went through.

Lesson for next time is stick lots of fund into paypal so your credit card isn't being hit so often.

Yep, one of mine did. Had a couple weird happenings too. Two payments were refunded, but then it let me buy again straight after. And there was one odd payment of 81p, in the middle of all of the £1's?! Pasted statement below....wtf?

I got one refund too. All very strange.

Also despite my "Automatic renewal" nothing has come out of my bank. I must have had some special skills to not pay them for a year's renewal.

Well I certainly don't have any at FIFA so it evens itself out.
