Will microsoft keep billing after my two months are over, or is there a way to turn off auto renewal?

I don't think there policy changed, so most likely they will. After the nightmare I had with putting a creadit card on there I will NEVER do it again, not even for MS points. There is a reason that deal is online only, so you put your credit card on there.

I've found that you just needed to phone them up free-phone at the end of 2 months and you can have it all cancelled within 5-10 minutes.

From my experience, you have to actually call in and good luck getting someone you can actually understand

I recently had 1 month for 1$, turned auto-renewal off and waited to see what would happen when it expired. Gold was cancelled and i wasnt charged anything. It wouldnt hurt to call i guess but in my case everything worked fine.

They make you jump through a few hoops to turn off auto-renewal online, but they were just pitiful attempts at keeping my interest :p

Yeah, you can simply do it online (instructions below):

There should be no issues with turning it off shortly after you purchase the two-month subscription.
