If you’re an Xbox LIVE Silver member, you might want to read this announcement. Starting today, Microsoft is offering Xbox LIVE Silver members a month of Xbox LIVE Gold membership for $1.
The offer is only for a limited-time so if you ever wanted to jump on the Xbox LIVE Gold bandwagon, here’s your chance! The $1 for a month of service is completely legit, although if you don’t plan on keeping the service, you may want to get on the phone with Xbox customer support to opt-out of the service. If you don’t, Microsoft will take it upon themselves to assume you’re having way too much fun playing over Xbox LIVE, so they’ll save you the trouble and automatically charge you for the following month of service at their full $14.99 price point.
This is actually a killer deal, but don’t say I didn’t warn you when the following month comes around and you’re staring at a $14.99 on your credit card bill. My advice would be to buy a full year of service since it comes out cheaper than a month-to-month basis.
