Great, but watch for price fluctuations,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Xbox Live 12 Month Gold Membership [Online Game Code] (Software Download)
Online codes are a great way to buy xbox live subscriptions and points: 1-click through Amazon, and I have the code sitting in my inbox within minutes. I've had xbox live for a few years now, no complaints there.
But the price on this item seems to change by a lot-- I just bought a 12-month gold code 2 days ago, and now I see that the price has jumped up by $11 (over a 20% increase!!) I assume this has to do with Modern Warfare 3 coming out tomorrow, and pre-orderers getting discounts off codes and all... I don't know who's responsible for the price hike but it's unfortunate.
Online codes can be a lot cheaper than buying cards online or at the store, if you catch it at the right time. Just make sure the holiday season isn't coming up (i.e. now), or there are no blockbuster multiplayer games about to release.

Did you preorder the game too?
I pre-ordered, but when I get to Step 2, of clicking "Complete Purchase" it doesn't show the $25 credit against the $59.99 balance for the purchase of this digital code...

I did not, I actually bought this separately. But I read about the deal and I think you're supposed to pre-order the game, then they give you the coupon code and you can get the $25 off.
