Top Customer Reviews
The obvious reason it's worth it is because it allows you to play games online with friends and family. However, I actually enjoy it most for it's other features. An Xbox Live gold membership allows you to use apps such as Netflix, MLB.tv, Hulu, and ESPN. All of these are services you have to pay for separately through those companies, of course (except ESPN, which is free as long as you have a participating Internet provider). But if you have them or want to get them, you can seamlessly turn your Xbox into a multimedia hub to stream movies, tv shows, sports, and other entertainment.
Lastly, while the price isn't amazing, it's less than you'll pay in a retail store or through Xbox. You should definitely get the 12 month subscription, as it comes with an extra month free and is cheaper per month. Occasionally Amazon will have deals with prices in the $30s, but it's worth $50 too, which is what I paid for mine.
My brothers Xbox Live account was hacked last year and they used the card on file to wrack up a mountain of charges for points which were transferred to other accounts and for PPV movies. XBox was of little help in returning the funds, not to mention the dent in his checking account at the time. I definitely recommend not keeping a card on file and instead using pre paid cards. As a bonus they actually cost less, though there is some loss of convenience. One exception to this is VISA gift cards. I have found XBox live an excellent way to use prepaid VISA Gift/rebate cards. I am able to transfer the full balance to XBox Live and then use the points at my leisure without the VISA company eating at it with management fees. Best yet there is no risk of loosing more than the value of the card due to account theft.
I definitely recommend purchasing these, just make sure you are buying from a reputable seller, as there are many sellers offering them on Amazon.
