This site is the cheapest I have found for this card.<br />
Do not pay for your live service monthly on your credit card.<br />
It's alot cheaper to buy one of these cards every year.

From what I can find this is the cheapest cost per month option available for a live gold subscription. Depending on the current price, it ranges from $2.9158 to $3.3325 per month. What I don't get is why this credit card sized subscription card comes in such wasteful packaging. It comes in a rather large plastic packaging, which requires it to be shipped in a box. You get free shipping, but how wasteful. Why doesn't amazon just offer the code online and not eat the cost of shipping and at the same time be a little greener?

Invalid code. Do not buy. Should be zero stars. Too bad you have to expose the code to find out that it's invalid.

I ordered this card as a Christmas gift for my son. The card was not received until early January! When the card FINALLY arrived, my son scratched-off the covering to reveal the code. Once he entered the code, the error messaged stated that the code had already been used! Puzzled as to how this could occur, I contacted Xbox who told me to contact the seller. I contacted the seller and explained the situation. They told me to contact Microsoft. They provided no contact information. I then contacted Microsoft who again told me to contact the seller. Microsoft thought that the seller would either refund my money or supply another card. The seller replied, "There are absolutely no returns on any video games, accessories and consoles once the item has been used or the factory seal has been broken." THIS CARD HAS ALREADY BEEN USED. SCAM??!! I have submitted a claim to Amazon. I will NEVER buy from this company again!

Jerks sent me a gold card that was for Arabia. BEWARE. Inspect the card before you open it, because if it's for another country and you try to use it you're out of luck.

I wouldn't pay full price for Xbox Live, and luckily, thanks to these 12 month cards, I don't have to. If you are reading this, you probably don't need any convincing that Xbox Live is worth paying for, but you probably want to know why you wouldn't want to simply enter your credit card information onto your Xbox, and pay for Live that way. First of all, Xbox Live almost never goes on sale through Microsoft. If you are patient, you can get these cards for thirty, forty, and sometimes even fifty percent off through retailers such as Amazon. Secondly, if you need to cancel Xbox Live for any reason, it is difficult over the phone. For a device that is so connected and Web 2.0, it is odd that you can't simply hit a button on your console and cancel Xbox Live. Having to actually call customer support to cancel a digital subscription is medieval, leaning toward draconian. Once you finally get someone on the line (after waiting on hold), you'll be asked to explain why you want to cancel Xbox Live. You may get offers for a discounted subscription, or other sales pitches, when all you want is a no hassle way to end your subscription. With a pre-paid card, all you have to do is let your time expire,without the hassle of having to call someone.

All things considered, since you have to pay for Live (to play online, to watch Netflix content, etc), you might as well get a discount. This is the best way to make that happen.
