Cheapest Live Subsription Option,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Xbox LIVE 12 Month Gold Membership Card (Video Game)
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?

This is actually available for digital download, not on a discounted price though which is a bummer.

Right, I was just referring to this $39.99 12 month card.

I just threw the empty packing and box out of the driverside window on the way home. Problem solved as far as I am concerned.

Awesome. Don't forget all the Mountain Dew bottles, McDonald's trash, and Dale Earnhardt collectible 96 oz. 7/11 slushie cup while you're cleaning up the primer grey 1983 El Camino.

Thank's M. Gillum. Of all the posts on this product I've found your post most helpfull :) Of course some people have gotten upset when my Mcdonalds bag flew out of my driver's side window going 70mph down the highway and landed on their windshield, but it's not about them it's about me right?

Way to go M Gillum!!! Your headed in the right direction. I canceled trash service altogether and dump it in the street now. The neighbors finally stopped complaining when I accidentally ran over their dog and warned them of worse things to come if they don't shut up.
Mother nature is MY trash can (and she should be yours too)!!!

Yes, but you also have to pay shipping. 3.97 is the cheapest option, or you can have it shipped to the store and pay taxes. Which is 9% (2.70) in Chicago.
